Entities endpoint (Profile access)

Adobe Experience Platform enables you to access Real-time Customer Profile data using RESTful APIs or the user interface. This guide outlines how to access entities, more commonly known as “profiles”, using the API. For more information on accessing profiles using the Platform UI, please refer to the Profile user guide.

Getting started

The API endpoint used in this guide is part of the Real-time Customer Profile API. Before continuing, please review the getting started guide for links to related documentation, a guide to reading the sample API calls in this document, and important information regarding required headers that are needed to successfully make calls to any Experience Platform API.

Access profile data by identity

You can access a Profile entity by making a GET request to the /access/entities endpoint and providing the entity’s identity as a series of query parameters. This identity consists of an ID value (entityId) and the identity namespace (entityIdNS).

Query parameters provided in the request path specify which data to access. You can include multiple parameters, separated by ampersands (&). A complete list of valid parameters is provided in the query parameters section of the appendix.

API format

GET /access/entities?{QUERY_PARAMETERS}

Request

The following request retrieves a customer’s email and name using an identity:

curl -X GET \
  'https://platform.adobe.io/data/core/ups/access/entities?schema.name=_xdm.context.profile&entityId=janedoe@example.com&entityIdNS=email&fields=identities,person.name,workEmail' \
  -H 'Authorization: Bearer {ACCESS_TOKEN}' \

NOTE

If a related graph links more than 50 identities, this service will return HTTP status 422 and the message “Too many related identities”. If you receive this error, consider adding more query parameters to narrow your search.

Access profile data by list of identities

You can access multiple profile entities by their identities by making a POST request to the /access/entities endpoint and providing the identities in the payload. These identities consist of an ID value (entityId) and an identity namespace (entityIdNS).

API format

POST /access/entities

Request

The following request retrieves the names and email addresses of several customers by a list of identities:

Access time series events for a profile by identity

You can access time series events by the identity of their associated profile entity by making a GET request to the /access/entities endpoint. This identity consists of an ID value (entityId) and an identity namespace (entityIdNS).

Query parameters provided in the request path specify which data to access. You can include multiple parameters, separated by ampersands (&). A complete list of valid parameters is provided in the query parameters section of the appendix.

API format

GET /access/entities?{QUERY_PARAMETERS}

Request

The following request finds a profile entity by ID, and retrieves the values for the properties endUserIDs, web, and channel for all time series events associated with the entity.

curl -X GET \
  'https://platform.adobe.io/data/core/ups/access/entities?schema.name=_xdm.context.experienceevent&relatedSchema.name=_xdm.context.profile&relatedEntityId=89149270342662559642753730269986316900&relatedEntityIdNS=ECID&fields=endUserIDs,web,channel&startTime=1531260476000&endTime=1531260480000&limit=1' \

  -H 'x-api-key: {API_KEY}' \
  -H 'x-gw-ims-org-id: {IMS_ORG}' \
  -H 'x-sandbox-name: {SANDBOX_NAME}'

Response

A successful response returns a paginated list of time series events and associated fields that were specified in the request query parameters.

NOTE

The request specified a limit of one (limit=1), therefore the count in the response below is 1 and only one entity is returned.

Access a subsequent page of results

Results are paginated when retrieving time series events. If there are subsequent pages of results, the _page.next property will contain an ID. Additionally, the _links.next.href property provides a request URI for retrieving the next page. To retrieve the results, make another GET request to the /access/entities endpoint, however you must be sure to replace /entities with the value of the provided URI.

NOTE

Be sure that you do not accidentally repeat /entities/ in the request path. It should only appear once like, /access/entities?start=...

API format

GET /access/{NEXT_URI}
Parameter Description
{NEXT_URI} The URI value taken from _links.next.href.

Request

The following request retrieves the next page of results by using the _links.next.href URI as the request path.

curl -X GET \
  'https://platform.adobe.io/data/core/ups/access/entities?start=c8d11988-6b56-4571-a123-b6ce74236037&orderby=timestamp&schema.name=_xdm.context.experienceevent&relatedSchema.name=_xdm.context.profile&relatedEntityId=89149270342662559642753730269986316900&relatedEntityIdNS=ECID&fields=endUserIDs,web,channel&startTime=1531260476000&endTime=1531260480000&limit=1' \

Access time series events for multiple profiles by identities

You can access time series events from multiple associated profiles by making a POST request to the /access/entities endpoint and providing the profile identities in the payload. These identities each consist of an ID value (entityId) and an identity namespace (entityIdNS).

API format

POST /access/entities

Request

The following request retrieves user IDs, local times, and country codes for time series events associated with a list of profile identities:

curl -X POST \
  https://platform.adobe.io/data/core/ups/access/entities \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  -H 'Authorization: Bearer {ACCESS_TOKEN}' \

        "endTime": 1539838510
    },
    "limit": 10
}'
Property Description
schema.name (REQUIRED) The XDM schema of the entity to retrieve
relatedSchema.name If schema.name is _xdm.context.experienceevent this value must specify the schema for the profile entity that the time series events are related to.
identities (REQUIRED) An array listing of profiles to retrieve associated time series events from. Each entry in the array is set in one of two ways: 1) using a fully qualified identity consisting of ID value and namespace or 2) providing an XID.
fields Isolates the data returned to a specified set of fields. Use this to filter which schema fields are included in data retrieved. Example: personalEmail,person.name,person.gender
mergePolicyId Identifies the Merge Policy by which to govern the data returned. If one is not specified in the service call, your organization’s default for that schema will be used. If no default Merge Policy has been configured, the default is no profile merge and no identity stitching.
orderby The sort order of retrieved experience events by timestamp, written as (+/-)timestamp with the default being +timestamp.
timeFilter.startTime Specify the start time to filter time-series objects (in milliseconds).
timeFilter.endTime Specify the end time to filter time-series objects (in milliseconds).
limit Numeric value specifying the maximum number of objects to return. Default: 1000
withCA Feature flag for enabling computed attributes for lookup. Default: false

Response

A successful response returns a paginated list of time series events associated with the multiple profiles specified in the request.

In this example response, the first listed profile (“GkouAW-yD9aoRCPhRYROJ-TetAFW”) provides a value for _links.next.payload, meaning that there are additional pages of results for this profile. See the following section on accessing additional results for details on how to access those additional results.

Access additional results

When retrieving time series events there may be many results being returned, therefore the results are often paginated. If there are subsequent pages of results for a particular profile, the _links.next.payload value for that profile will contain a payload object.

Using this payload in the request body, you can perform an additional POST request to the access/entities endpoint to retrieve the subsequent page of time series data for that profile.

Access time series events in multiple schema entities

You can access multiple entities that are connected through a relationship descriptor. The following example API call assumes a relationship has already been defined between two schemas. For more information on relationship descriptors, please read the Schema Registry API developer guide descriptors endpoint guide.

You can include query parameters in the request path in order to specify which data to access. You can include multiple parameters, separated by ampersands (&). A complete list of valid parameters is provided in the query parameters section of the appendix.

API format

GET /access/entities?{QUERY_PARAMETERS}

Request

The following request retrieves an entity containing a previously established relationship descriptor to access information across different schemas.

curl -X GET \
  https://platform.adobe.io/data/core/ups/access/entities?relatedSchema.name=_xdm.context.profile&schema.name=_xdm.context.experienceevent&relatedEntityId=GkouAW-2Xkftzer3bBtHiW8GkaFL \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  -H 'Authorization: Bearer {ACCESS_TOKEN}' \
  -H 'x-api-key: {API_KEY}' \
  -H 'x-gw-ims-org-id: {IMS_ORG}' \

Response

A successful response returns a paginated list of time series events associated with the multiple entities.

Access a subsequent page of results

Results are paginated when retrieving time series events. If there are subsequent pages of results, the _page.next property will contain an ID. Additionally, the _links.next.href property provides a request URI for retrieving the subsequent page by making additional GET requests to the access/entities endpoint.

Next steps

By following this guide you have successfully accessed Real-time Customer Profile data fields, profiles, and time series data. To learn how to access other data resources stored in Platform, see the Data Access overview.

Appendix

The following section provides supplemental information regarding accessing Profile data using the API.

Query parameters

The following parameters are used in the path for GET requests to the /access/entities endpoint. They serve to identify the profile entity you wish to access and filter the data returned in the response. Required parameters are labeled, while the rest are optional.

Parameter Description Example
schema.name (REQUIRED) The XDM schema of the entity to retrieve schema.name=_xdm.context.experienceevent
relatedSchema.name If schema.name is “_xdm.context.experienceevent”, this value must specify the schema for the profile entity that the time series events are related to. relatedSchema.name=_xdm.context.profile
entityId (REQUIRED) The ID of the entity. If the value of this parameter is not an XID, an identity namespace parameter must also be provided (see entityIdNS below). entityId=janedoe@example.com
entityIdNS If entityId is not provided as an XID, this field must specify the identity namespace. entityIdNE=email
relatedEntityId If schema.name is “_xdm.context.experienceevent”, this value must specify the related profile entity’s identity namespace. This value follows the same rules as entityId. relatedEntityId=69935279872410346619186588147492736556
relatedEntityIdNS If schema.name is “_xdm.context.experienceevent”, this value must specify the identity namespace for the entity specified in relatedEntityId. relatedEntityIdNS=CRMID
fields Filters the data returned in the response. Use this to specify which schema field values to include in data retrieved. For multiple fields, separate values by a comma with no spaces between fields=personalEmail,person.name,person.gender
mergePolicyId Identifies the Merge Policy by which to govern the data returned. If one is not specified in the call, your organization’s default for that schema will be used. If no default Merge Policy has been configured, the default is no profile merge and no identity stitching. mergePoilcyId=5aa6885fcf70a301dabdfa4a
orderBy The sort order of retrieved experience events by timestamp, written as (+/-)timestamp with the default being +timestamp. orderby=-timestamp
startTime Specify the start time to filter time-series objects (in milliseconds). startTime=1539838505
endTime Specify the end time to filter time-series objects (in milliseconds). endTime=1539838510
limit Numeric value specifying the maximum number of objects to return. Default: 1000 limit=100
property Filters by the property value. Supports the following evaluators: =, !=, <, <=, >, >=. Can only be used with experience events, with a maximum of three properties being supported. property=webPageDetails.isHomepage=true&property=localTime<="2020-07-20"
withCA Feature flag for enabling computed attributes for lookup. Default: false withCA=true
