(Python) SharePoint -- Rename Folder

This example shows how to rename SharePoint folder.

Renaming a folder is not straightforward. Apparently, the information published by Microsoft is incorrect and simply doesn't work (the information about how to update a folder by using the MERGE method is incorrect).

To rename a folder requires two steps, as demonstrated by this example.

import sys
import chilkat

#  This requires the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked.
#  See Global Unlock Sample for sample code.

http = chilkat.CkHttp()

#  If SharePoint Windows classic authentication is used, then set the
#  Login, Password, LoginDomain, and NtlmAuth properties.
http.put_Login("SHAREPOINT_USERNAME")
http.put_Password("SHAREPOINT_PASSWORD")
http.put_LoginDomain("SHAREPOINT_NTLM_DOMAIN")
http.put_NtlmAuth(True)

#  The more common case is to use SharePoint Online authentication (via the SPOIDCRL cookie).
#  If so, do not set Login, Password, LoginDomain, and NtlmAuth, and instead
#  establish the cookie as shown at SharePoint Online Authentication

#  The first step in renaming a file is send a GET to the /ListItemAllFields endpoint:
#  Indicate we want a JSON response.
http.SetRequestHeader("Accept","application/json;odata=verbose")

#  In this example, we want to rename the folder "/Documents/ChilkatTest" to "/Documents/ChilkatTest2"
sAllFields = http.quickGetStr("https://SHAREPOINT_HTTPS_DOMAIN/_api/web/GetFolderByServerRelativeUrl('/Documents/ChilkatTest')/ListItemAllFields")
if (http.get_LastMethodSuccess() != True):
    print(http.lastErrorText())
    sys.exit()

json = chilkat.CkJsonObject()
json.Load(sAllFields)
json.put_EmitCompact(False)

print(json.emit())

#  The JSON response will look like this:
#  We'll need to get the "id", "etag", and "type" for the next step.  The "id" for the
#  sample below is "Web/Lists(guid'b0d92cec-4be1-4e52-943d-ebcb432e1c3b')/Items(62)"

# 
#  {
#    "d": {
#      "__metadata": {
#        "id": "Web/Lists(guid'b0d92cec-4be1-4e52-943d-ebcb432e1c3b')/Items(62)",
#        "uri": "https://SHAREPOINT_HTTPS_DOMAIN/_api/Web/Lists(guid'b0d92cec-4be1-4e52-943d-ebcb432e1c3b')/Items(62)",
#        "etag": "\"4\"",
#        "type": "SP.Data.DocumentsItem"
#      },
#      ...
#      ...
#      "FileSystemObjectType": 1,
#      "Id": 62,
#      "ContentTypeId": "0x012000FA905915D7D8F7458C1A0AF1E981BFF5",
#      "Title": "ChilkatTest",
#      "OData__dlc_DocId": null,
#      "OData__dlc_DocIdUrl": null,
#      "URL": null,
#      "DocumentSetDescription": null,
#      "EditorId": 25,
#      "ID": 62,
#      "Created": "2017-04-12T19:18:29",
#      "AuthorId": 25,
#      "Modified": "2017-04-12T19:49:15",
#      "OData__CopySource": null,
#      "CheckoutUserId": null,
#      "OData__UIVersionString": "1.0",
#      "GUID": "71f30f44-e33a-48e7-b4d8-9d619ba1ad69"
#    }
#  }

#  -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
#  Step 2...

#  To rename a folder, we're going to POST to
#  https://SHAREPOINT_HTTPS_DOMAIN/_api/Web/Lists(guid'b0d92cec-4be1-4e52-943d-ebcb432e1c3b')/Items(62)
#  with a request body containing the following JSON:
# 
#      { "__metadata": { "type": "THE_TYPE_FROM_ABOVE" }, "Title": "New title", "FileLeafRef": "New title"}
# 

#  Build the Path, which is "/_api/" + the id from above.
sbPath = chilkat.CkStringBuilder()
sbPath.Append("/_api/")
sbPath.Append(json.stringOf("d.__metadata.id"))

req = chilkat.CkHttpRequest()
req.put_HttpVerb("POST")
req.put_Path(sbPath.getAsString())

#  We need to add a form digest value in the X-RequestDigest header field.
#  See this example for details on
#  how to get (and cache) a form digest value
req.AddHeader("X-RequestDigest","SHAREPOINT_FORM_DIGEST")

#  Set the Content-Type, and indicate that a JSON response is desired.
req.put_ContentType("application/json;odata=verbose")
req.AddHeader("Accept","application/json;odata=verbose")

#  We need a few more headers...
req.AddHeader("IF-MATCH",json.stringOf("d.__metadata.etag"))
req.AddHeader("X-HTTP-Method","MERGE")

#  Create and add the JSON body.
jsonBody = chilkat.CkJsonObject()
jsonBody.UpdateString("__metadata.type",json.stringOf("d.__metadata.type"))
jsonBody.UpdateString("Title","ChilkatTest2")
jsonBody.UpdateString("FileLeafRef","ChilkatTest2")
req.LoadBodyFromString(jsonBody.emit(),"utf-8")

#  Send the POST using HTTPS.
bUseTls = True
# resp is a CkHttpResponse
resp = http.SynchronousRequest("SHAREPOINT_HTTPS_DOMAIN",443,bUseTls,req)
if (http.get_LastMethodSuccess() != True):
    print(http.lastErrorText())
    sys.exit()

#  The response body contains JSON.
#  When successful, it will be empty.
json.Load(resp.bodyStr())
json.put_EmitCompact(False)

print("Response status code = " + str(resp.get_StatusCode()))

#  The expected success response code is 204.
if (resp.get_StatusCode() != 204):
    print("Response status code = " + str(resp.get_StatusCode()))
    print(json.emit())
    print("Failed")

    sys.exit()

#  The response body is empty for a 204 (success) response...
print("Success.")
