You can interact with the discussions on each DSS object through the API.

Obtaining the discussions

The first step is always to retrieve a DSSObjectDiscussions object corresponding to the DSS object your manipulating. Generally, it’s through a method called get_object_discussionss

# Get the discussions of a dataset
discussions = dataset.get_object_discussions()

# Get the discussion of a wiki article
discussions = wiki.get_article("my article").get_object_discussions()

# Get the discussions of a project
discussions = project.get_object_discussions()

# ...

List the discussions of an object

for discussion in discussions.list_discussions():
        # Discussion is a DSSDiscussion object
        print ("Discussion with id: %s" % discussion.discussion_id)

Reading the messages of a discussion

for message in discussion.get_replies():
        print("Message by author %s" % message.get_author())
        print("Message posted on %s" % message.get_timestamp())
        print("Message content: %s" % message.get_text())

Adding a new message to a discussion

discussion.add_reply("hello world\n# This is Markdown")

Creating a new discussion

new_discussion = discussions.create_discussion("Topic", "Hello, this is the message")
