I have Alfresco Community 5.2.0


I need to get a filelist from some shared folder.

It is need for external application on android which I am developing.

The Application should get a filelist of folder, parse it and get files with names and descriptions, then user can download one or several of them.


I would like to use rest api.

I found out how authorize and get ticket by get-request.


Then I need to get a filelist from shared folder (it's name is test).


get-request work fine if i logged in via browser.


And i get the content of this folder (filesm descriptions and etc)


But if I logged out from alfresco and try get-request with alf_ticket, it doesn't work. ticket is valid


I receives an error
