Expand description

Required Associated Constants

Metadata about the endpoint.

Required Methods

Tries to convert this request into an http::Request.

On endpoints with authentication, when adequate information isn’t provided through access_token, this could result in an error. It may also fail with a serialization error in case of bugs in Ruma though.

It may also fail if, for every version in considering_versions;

  • The endpoint is too old, and has been removed in all versions. (EndpointRemoved)
  • The endpoint is too new, and no unstable path is known for this endpoint. (NoUnstablePath)

Finally, this will emit a warning through tracing if it detects if any version in considering_versions has deprecated this endpoint.

The endpoints path will be appended to the given base_url, for example https://matrix.org. Since all paths begin with a slash, it is not necessary for the base_url to have a trailing slash. If it has one however, it will be ignored.
