given a review ID, I need an API to get the Author

Neither the CLI API nor the JASON API indicate any method to obtain the author for a given review. How do I do this? Which API do I need?

Re: given a review ID, I need an API to get the Author

Install the command line api that matches your server version.

 

establish login settings by the command ./ccollab login

Test it with command ./ccollab admin <Valid Review Number>

 

then to get the Author, use the command to get the XML version of the review, and pipe it through grep to get the info about the author EG

 

./ccollab admin review-xml 11195 | grep -B2 Author
