Sample data endpoint

In order to ingest data into Adobe Experience Platform, the format and structure of the data must comply with an existing Experience Data Model (XDM) schema. Depending on the complexity of the schema for a particular dataset, it can be difficult to determine the exact shape of the data that the dataset expects upon ingestion.

Using the /sampledata endpoint in the Schema Registry API, you can generate an example ingestion object for any previously created schema.

Getting started

The endpoint used in this guide is part of the Schema Registry 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.

The sample data endpoint is part of the remote procedure calls (RPCs) that are supported by the Schema Registry. Unlike other endpoints in the Schema Registry API, RPC endpoints do not require additional headers like Accept or Content-Type, and do not use a CONTAINER_ID. Instead, they must use the /rpc namespace, as demonstrated in the API call below.

Retrieve sample data for a schema

You can retrieve sample data for any schema within the Schema Library by specifying the schema’s ID in the path of a GET request to the endpoint.

API format

GET /rpc/sampledata/{SCHEMA_ID}
Parameter Description
{SCHEMA_ID} The meta:altId or URL-encoded $id of the schema you want to generate sample data for.

Request

The following request generates sample data for a Loyalty Members schema.

curl -X GET \
  https://platform.adobe.io/data/foundation/schemaregistry/rpc/sampledata/_{TENANT_ID}.schemas.533ca5da28087c44344810891b0f03d9 \
  -H 'Authorization: Bearer {ACCESS_TOKEN}' \
  -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 sample data object for the specified schema.
