Get a URL for an Item to the Word Edit page

We have 365 Online connected as a third party app and I am able to click on 'Edit' in the sharefile web interface and be directed to Word Online.

Am I able to generate a link for an Item to edit directly in Word Online from the API? I've tried hitting the '/Items/ContentViewer' endpoint but the token I get back and URL does not seem to work.

Thanks!

Hi Ben,

There are no public APIs for Word Online editing. '/Items/WebView', 'Items\ProtocolLinks' can be used to view documents using Word Online.

Thanks!

Currently it's not supported on public endpoints.

Thanks!

Thanks Sugar. I understand it's not supported by public endpoints. I'm wondering if you know of another way of generating the link? When looking at the sharefile web ui it still uses the API endpoints, so thought there might be an undocumented  way? Cheers
