To retrieve a post that is waiting to be approved, use the edit link found in the blog post entry.
You can use this operation to obtain blog post information that you want to preserve prior to performing an update. See Updating blog posts awaiting approval
for more information. This method returns the Atom entry of a single blog post as opposed to a feed of all the posts.
See Authenticating requests
for information about how to authenticate the request.
To retrieve a blog post that is awaiting approval, complete the following steps:
Retrieve the moderation service document. See Retrieving the Blogs moderation service document for more details.
In the service document, locate the workspace with the <atom:category term="entries-moderation" .../> child element, and then find the collection with the <atom:category term="approval-content" .../> child element and make a note of the web address in its href attribute.
Send a GET request to the web address you copied from the previous step. In the returned feed, find the entry that you want to update, and make a note of the web address for it, which is specified in the href attribute of its rel=edit link.
Send a GET request to the URL that you noted in the previous step to retrieve the Atom document for the blog posting entry.
