Hey Tom,


How's it going?  We worked together briefly years ago on a project.  Do you have any examples of downloading the VersionData of a ContentVersion object using the Android Mobile SDK?  I can assemble the appropriate URL after querying the ContentDocument and ContentVersion objects but then I can't complete the download due to not having a valid Salesforce session.

Hi Ed,


Good to hear from you. Unfortunately, I don't have any public examples, but you'll need to have a valid access token included in the REST API request in order to access ContentVersion records.

Thanks Tom,


I figured that out finally and found where I could access it from the Mobile SDK.  I'll writeup my approach when I get it cleaned up as it looks like a common unaswered type of question out there.
