Swap Pages


This REST API allows swapping two pages of positions within the source document. The result is a new document where two pages have their positions exchanged. For swapping pages positions it’s needed to specify page numbers along with a path to document in storage. For protected documents, it is also required to provide a password.

The table below contains the full list of properties that can be specified while swapping document pages.

FilePathThe file path in the storageRequired property

Using an SDK (API client) is the quickest way for a developer to speed up the development. An SDK takes care of a lot of low-level details of makingRequests and handlingResponses and lets you focus on writing code specific to your particular project. Check out our GitHub repository for a complete list of GroupDocs.Merger Cloud SDKs along with working examples, to get you started in no time. Please check to Get Supported File Formats article to learn how to add an SDK to your project.
