is it possible to retrieve a list of file IDs of files that are in the chatter file storage?

For the time being, I am only able to download the files after retrieve the ID from the chatter posts using this endpoint "/chatter/feeds/files/me/feed-elements" http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/chatterapi/

I would like to see if there is any way I can directly request from the chatter file storage for a list of file IDs it has.


Yes. Based on the Chatter Collaboration datamodel or the Chatter Cheat sheet you can find out that it's the ContentDocument table you're looking for if you want to find chatter files. You can query this through SOQL like this:

SELECT Id,Title,createddate FROM ContentDocument

Using the REST API you can either use the query call


or use the ContentDocument endpoint for describe, recent items or record details
