curl -u "$USERNAME:$PASSWORD" "https://api.elis.rossum.ai/v1/queues/$QUEUE_ID/export?format=xml&status=exported&exported_at_after=$(date -d '1 day ago' +%F)&exported_at_before=$(date +%F)&page=1&page_size=100"

To save the results to a file, use the shell redirect, for example: ./example.sh >file.xml will store the data in file.xml in your current directory.

The export API is more powerful - you can filter by different criteria or download the data e.g. as a JSON instead - see the full docs.

This example will export at most 100 documents. To export more documents, you need to modify the code to download multiple pages one by one, until it reaches the page count (or it can simply stop when an empty set of results is finally downloaded).
