Get content items

While your copywriters draft articles and add finishing touches to the content in your project, deliver that content to web and mobile applications using the Delivery API. The Delivery API is a read-only API that's available as both REST API and GraphQL API. This tutorial covers the basics of using the Delivery REST API.

The Delivery API can work in two modes: production and preview. In production mode, you get published content that is publicly available. In preview mode, you get the latest version of your content, be it published or unpublished.

Let's find out what you need to retrieve a list of published content items like articles from your project.

Table of contents

    Get content items

    To retrieve content items from a project, you first need to specify the project using its unique ID.

    You'll use the project ID to tell the Delivery REST API where to look for content. For example, a project ID might look like this: 8d20758c-d74c-4f59-ae04-ee928c0816b.

    1. Find your project ID

    1. In Kontent, choose a project.
    2. From the app menu, choose  Project settings.
    3. Under Environment settings, choose API keys.
    4. In the Delivery API box, click .

    With the project ID, you can now make queries to the Delivery API.

    2. Make a request

    Calling the list content items endpoint gives you all content items from the specified project in the JSON format.

     Note that recently published items may appear in the Delivery API after a slight delay.

    Paging the results

    If you don't need all content items at once, you can tinker with the paging by specifying the limit and skip query parameters.

    For example, calling the /items endpoint with the limit=3&skip=6 query parameters sets the page size to 3 and gives you the third page.

    Filter content items

    Now that you can get all content items from your project, you need to filter them to get only a specific few. In this example, you'll retrieve articles. These are the content items based on the Article content type.

    1. Find codenames

    To move any further, you need to find the codename of the Article content type.

    Quick facts about codenames

    Codenames are identifiers of objects in Kontent. A codename is initially generated by the system from the object's name when it's saved for the first time.

    You can copy codenames by clicking  near the name of a content type, content element, or other objects in your project. For example, the find the codename of a content type named Article, go to Content model > Content types > Article > .

    Codename box appearance in an example content type

    Example: Displaying the codename of the Article content type.

    Once you have the codename (in this case article) you can use it to filter the requested content items by their type.

    2. Filter by codenames

    The information about a content item's type is stored in the content item's System object, specifically, in its type property. The System object contains metadata about the content item such as the last content modification date, language, collection, and more.

    • JSON
    "system": { "id": "31f8470f-8a94-438a-8a47-f4cdb9c90ada", "collection": "default", "name": "Why structured writing needs structured content", "codename": "structured_writing", "language": "en-US", "type": "article", "sitemap_locations": [], "last_modified": "2020-01-27T13:43:47.134249Z", "workflow_step": "published" }
    "system": { "id": "31f8470f-8a94-438a-8a47-f4cdb9c90ada", "collection": "default", "name": "Why structured writing needs structured content", "codename": "structured_writing", "language": "en-US", "type": "article", "sitemap_locations": [], "last_modified": "2020-01-27T13:43:47.134249Z", "workflow_step": "published" }

    To filter the content items by type, you need to compare the value in the type system property to article using the following notation: system.type=article. Any content items that are not based on the Article content type will be omitted from the response.

    The value comparison is done using the equals operator.

    Tip: Check out more examples of filtering content with the Delivery APIs.

    Order content items

    The Delivery API sorts content items alphabetically by their codenames by default. But with content like articles, you usually want to retrieve and display them in a certain order and get, for example, only three latest articles from your project.

    When getting lists of content items, you can specify their order by using the order query parameter. The value of the order query parameter must be in the following format: <PropertyToOrderBy>[<asc|desc>]. Where the PropertyToOrderBy value specifies either a System property (such as system.type) or a content element within a content item (such as elements.title). For instance, if you don't specify the order when retrieving content, it is the equivalent of adding order=system.codename[asc] to your query.

    To get three latest articles from your project, you need to provide the following query parameters:

    • system.type=article – specifies the content type of the content items.
    • limit=3 – sets the number of content items to return (sometimes also referred to as page size).
    • order=system.last_modified[desc] – sorts the content items by last modification date in descending order.
