Re: [orion-dev] Another question about Server API / File API

Hi Mark,


Thank you for the explanation.


What should happen if by “copy directory, no-overwrite” one file inside of the destination directory already exists?

Should the whole command be canceled?

What if only the empty destination directory exists?

Hi Vitaly,

Here are, taken from the Orion source code, the current values that can go into X-Create-Options. (This is not an exhaustive list: more options may be added in future, and implementations are required to ignore unrecognized options.)

  • copy
  • move
  • no-overwrite

Valid combinations are produced by taking one of either "copy" or "move", and optionally adding "no-overwrite". Hence the valid combinations are:

  • copy
  • move
  • copy,


   (order doesn't matter)

  • move,no-overwrite  (order doesn't matter)

Thanks for pointing out that these details were missing from the Server API docs. I have added them to the wiki.

Hi all,


I have another question about Orion File API.


What are the possible values for  X-Create-Options ?
And what are the allowed combinations of this values ?
Is there some detailed documentation about it ?


Thanks in advance,
