header params
Accept xsd:string
(required)
default: application/json
options: application/json, application/atom+xml, application/xml
This represents the acceptable mime type format in which the response can be generated. This can also be submitted as the query string parameter "httpAccept". This returns the response in JSON, ATOM, or XML mark-up.
Authorization xsd:string This header field contains the OAuth bearer access token in which the format of the field is "Bearer <token>" (where the token represents the end-user session key). The presence of a bearer token implies the request will be executed against user-based entitlements. The Authorization field overrides X-ELS-Authtoken.
X-ELS-APIKey xsd:string
(required)
This represents a unique application developer key providing access to API resources. This key can also be submitted as the query string parameter "apiKey"
X-ELS-Authtoken xsd:string This represents a end-user session. If provided, this token is used to validate the credentials needed to access content in this resource. This token can also be submitted through the HTTP header "Authorization" or the query string parameter "access_token".
X-ELS-Insttoken xsd:string This represents a institution token. If provided, this key (in combination with its associated APIKey) is used to establish the credentials needed to access content in this resource. This token can also be provided through the query string parameter "insttoken".
X-ELS-ReqId xsd:string This is a client-defined request identifier, which will be logged in all trace messages of the service. This identifier can be used to track a specific transaction in the service's message logs. It will also be returned as an HTTP header in the corresponding response. Note that this should be a unique identifier for the client, and used to track a single transaction.
X-ELS-ResourceVersion xsd:string
default: 1
options: 1


Version of the data requested, default = 1, 404 reponse if version does not exist

query params
httpAccept xsd:string
options: application/json, application/atom+xml, application/xml
Override for HTTP header Accept, this represents the acceptable mime types in which the response can be generated.
access_token xsd:string Override for HTTP header Authorization, this contains the OAuth bearer access token, where the format of the field is "<token>" (where the token represents the end-user session key). The presence of a bearer token implies the request will be executed against user-based entitlements.
insttoken xsd:string Override for HTTP header X-ELS-Insttoken, this represents a institution token. If provided, this key (in combination with its associated APIKey) is used to establish the credentials needed to access content in this resource.
apiKey xsd:string Override for HTTP header X-ELS-APIKey, this represents a unique application developer key providing access to resource.
reqId xsd:string Override for HTTP header X-ELS-ReqId, this is a client-defined request identifier, which will be logged in all trace messages of the service. This identifier can be used to track a specific transaction in the service's message logs. Note that this should be a unique identifier for the client, and used to track a single transaction.
