Media queries for Associated Docs URI

Having difficulties accessing URIs for Associated Docs. RETS URL is: User is 'RETSFORCCAR' governed by a RETS profile called 'Scott.' That profile has access to the RE_1 class of the 'Media' Resource. We are able to consume data, but all we get are jpeg URIs, no pdf docs (e.g. disclosure, hazard, etc).

Even with permissions to access media, it doesn’t show up in the metadata for me, so it’s possible I’m missing something.

Any help appreciated!

Currently the Media resource only returns URLs for listing images. You would need to use GetObject with location=1 to get document URLs.

Sorry. I should have checked this earlier. MAXEBRDI does not currently allow Document access through RETS. You would need to contact the MLS and see if they would enable it. If it isn't returned in METADATA-OBJECT it isn't enabled for the MLS.

I’m not sure of the object name to use in the request because only Photo and Thumbnail show up in the metadata, so tried a few guesses. Most returned unknown, but specifying “Document” returned a different error message: 20408 - Resource Unavailable. Error in the application. Any guidance? Sample?

And just to clarify, I am local board/MLS staff. The product I hope to leverage docs in is mls login secured. We would really appreciate a working sample to retrieve a doc count, and the URIs for the docs for a particular listing!

Thanks! Don't have enough cred to upvote, but closing as I have my answer for now!

Bruce, I am being told that this has been enabled for MAXEBRD at our request. But we still are not able to gather documents. Could you please provide a working sample query?

I just checked and Document access is not enabled for RETS on MAXEBRDI. Also, when it is, you will see "Document" in METADATA-OBJECT XML. It needs to be enabled for the MLS and to have a metadata refresh done for it to be available.
