API projections are basically predefined query options for the API. They can be used to simplify the queried data or to add more extra data to the result.


Projections are predefined, so first of all, you need to know which one you want to use, not all API endpoint has the same projections. You can check the projections at the API representation documentation pages:

In usage, they work as an URL query parameter, you need to add to the API request URL as comma separated string, or use SDK.


Example cloud GET HTTP request with info projection:

GET https://api.shardimage.com/cloud/v1/<cloudId>?projection=info HTTP/1.1
Host: api.shardimage.com
Accept-Encoding: gzip
Content-ID: <contentId>
Content-Type: application/json; charset=utf-8
X-Shardimage-Auth-Key: <apiKey>
X-Shardimage-Auth-Signature: <signature>
X-Shardimage-Mode: sync/parallel
User-Agent: GuzzleHttp/6.3.3 curl/7.58.0 PHP/7.2.24-0ubuntu0.18.04.2 ShardimagePhpOfficial/1.0.0
Referrer: 5230.1579248549.1839.1184145725

With the official Shardimage PHP SDK:

use shardimage\shardimagephp\auth\Client;
use shardimage\shardimagephp\models\cloud\IndexParams;
$client = new Client([
    'apiKey' => '<apiKey>',
    'apiSecret' => '<apiSecret>',
    'imageSecret' => '<imageSecret>',
    'cloudId' => '<cloudId>',
$cloud = $client->getCloudService()->view('<cloudId>', ['projection' => IndexParams::PROJECTION_WITH_INFO]);
