Automations

Automations are helpful when you want to get something done without having to manually recreate the task through a visual interface online. Say you wanted to add data to data.world or get data out of data.world for your work elsewhere. You could use API endpoints like Upload Files, Download a File, Retrieve a Dataset, Update a Dataset, or even query datasets with SQL Query.

Try sending a test request using the Download a File endpoint. You’ll need the owner, dataset ID, file ID, and your API tokenFinding your API tokens for data.world.

Use this information for your example:

owner: bryon

id: us-zipcodes

file: zipcode.csv

Or try using the following Shell command:

curl --request GET \
  --url https://api.data.world/v0/file_download/bryon/us-zipcodes/zipcode.csv \
  --header 'authorization: Bearer YOUR API TOKEN'
