Update a linkifier

PATCH https://yourZulipDomain.zulipchat.com/api/v1/realm/filters/{filter_id}

Update a linkifier, regular expression patterns that are automatically linkified when they appear in messages and topics.

Changes: New in Zulip 4.0 (feature level 57).

Usage examples

#!/usr/bin/env python3

import zulip

# Pass the path to your zuliprc file here.
client = zulip.Client(config_file="~/zuliprc")

# Update a linkifier.
request = {
    "pattern": "#(?P<id>[0-9]+)",
    "url_template": "https://github.com/zulip/zulip/issues/{id}",
result = client.call_endpoint(
    url=f"/realm/filters/{filter_id}", method="PATCH", request=request

curl -sSX PATCH https://yourZulipDomain.zulipchat.com/api/v1/realm/filters/5 \
    --data-urlencode 'pattern=#(?P<id>[0-9]+)' \
    --data-urlencode 'url_template=https://github.com/zulip/zulip/issues/{id}'


filter_id integer required in path

Example: 5

The ID of the linkifier that you want to update.

pattern string required

Example: "#(?P<id>[0-9]+)"

The Python regular expression that should trigger the linkifier.

url_template string required

Example: "https://github.com/zulip/zulip/issues/{id}"

The RFC 6570 compliant URL template used for the link. If you used named groups in pattern, you can insert their content here with {name_of_group}.

Changes: New in Zulip 7.0 (feature level 176). This replaced the url_format_string parameter, which was a format string in which named groups' content could be inserted with %(name_of_group)s.


Example response(s)

Changes: As of Zulip 7.0 (feature level 167), if any parameters sent in the request are not supported by this endpoint, a successful JSON response will include an ignored_parameters_unsupported array.

A typical successful JSON response may look like:

    "msg": "",
    "result": "success"
