?Hi Noah,

You need the "numbered_cs" param. See:


under: GET /repositories/:repo_id/resource_descriptions/:id.xml

So this should work: curl -O -H "X-ArchivesSpace-Session: $TOKEN" "[backend-url]/repositories/41/resource_descriptions/$IDs.xml?numbered_cs=true"

I'm trying to batch export all resource records as EAD in a given repository using the API, but I can't quite figure out how to get numbered components (instead of unnumbered).

With the following command, I can get all resources as EAD with unnumbered components ($IDs is a list of all resource IDs in curly braces):
curl -O -H "X-ArchivesSpace-Session: $TOKEN" "[backend-url]/repositories/41/resource_descriptions/$IDs.xml

Does anyone know the syntax for using the numbered component option with the API?
