#3278 closed enhancement (fixed)

No way to retrieve "description" and "tags" for uploaded GPX tracks?

Reported by: hartmut@… Owned by: Tom Hughes

Component: api Version:
Keywords: gpx tracks Cc:


When uploading a GPX track file via "/api/0.6/gpx/create" i can provide "description" and "tags" fields, none of the gpx related API functions seem to be able to retrieve these values though?

Proposed enhancement alternatives:

  • add "description" and "tags" attributes to the <gpx_file> tags returned by /api/0.6/gpx/<id>/details
  • instead of adding attributes to <gpx_file> maybe make <gpx_file> a container that may have optional <description> and <tags> data subcontainers (field contents are usually rather short though, so attributes may be sufficient)
  • create separate API calls for these values
