OCS Status API

The OCS Status API allows you to access and modify status API from outside over pre-defined OCS calls.

The base URL for all calls to the share API is: <nextcloud_base_url>/ocs/v2.php/apps/user_status/api/v1/user_status

All calls to OCS endpoints require the OCS-APIRequest header to be set to true.
