Recycle Bin

Recycling methods and dealing with recycle bin

You can work with recycle bins via REST API similarly as with lists.

Getting deleted items

data, err := sp.Site().RecycleBin().
OrderBy("DeletedDate", false).
Top(5).
Get() // site's Recycle Bin
// data, err := sp.Web().RecycleBin().Get() // web's one
if err != nil {
log.Fatal(err)
}
​
for _, item := range data.Data() {
d := item.Data()
fmt.Println(
d.ID,
d.ItemType,
d.LeafNamePath.DecodedURL,
d.DeletedByName,
d.DeletedDate,
)
}

Items in recycle bins are queryable collection, OData modifiers can be applied in a usual way.

Response is strongly typed, helps do not care about unmarshalling the structures. Items in recycle bin contains the following metadata:

type RecycledItem struct {
AuthorEmail string
AuthorName string
DeletedByEmail string
DeletedByName string
DeletedDate time.Time
DeletedDateLocalFormatted string
DirName string
ID string
ItemState int
ItemType int
LeafName string
Size int
Title string
LeafNamePath *DecodedURL
DirNamePath *DecodedURL
}

Once you have Item ID (which is a GUID in case of recycle bin) you can not resore it.

Restoring recycled items

data, err := sp.Site().RecycleBin().Top(1).Get()
if err != nil {
log.Fatal(err)
}
​
if len(data.Data()) > 0 {
itemID := data.Data()[0].Data().ID
if err := sp.Site().RecycleBin().GetByID(itemID).Restore(); err != nil {
log.Fatal(err)
}
}
