Get Albums

This API operation gets the albums of the user specified in the UserID parameter. When the authenticated user is subscribed to the private gallery of the owner of the album the API will return the ThumbUrl of the album.

URL / Endpoint

Need help with Postman?

GET /v1/Pictures/GetAlbums

GET /v1/Groups/Pictures/GetAlbums (See Group manager)


UserID integer Required. The ID of the owner of the album.
ReturnPictureIDs boolean To let the API return the ID's of the pictures set this to true.

Group manager

If the authenticated user is the manager of a group, the user can impersonate another member of the group. This allows the manager to perform tasks of other group members without having to authenticate as them.

The request can be build in the same way as the regular request, but targeted towards the Group manager endpoint. It re-uses the existing UserID property to set the ID of the group member. This means you can only use the Group manager version of this endpoint to get data from your group members.
