Note: GetCategories is designed to retrieve very large sets of metadata that change once a day or less often. To improve performance, these calls return cached responses when you request all available data (with no filters). When this occurs, the MessageID and CorrelationID fields aren't applicable. However, if you specify an input filter to reduce the amount of data returned, the calls retrieve the latest data (not cached). When this occurs, MessageID and CorrelationID are applicable.
Unique Identifier of Recipient user ID of the notification. Only returned by Platform Notifications (not for regular API call responses).
To subscribe to and receive eBay Buyer Protection notifications, this field is required, and you must pass in 'eBP notification' as a string.
Applications must recognize when the Message field is returned and provide a means to display the listing hints and error message explanations to the user.
The string can return HTML, including TABLE, IMG, and HREF elements. In this case, an HTML-based application should be able to include the HTML as-is in the HTML page that displays the results. A non-HTML application would need to parse the HTML and convert the table elements and image references into UI elements particular to the programming language used. As usual for string data types, the HTML markup elements are escaped with character entity references (e.g.,<table><tr>...).
Event name of the notification. Only returned by Platform Notifications.
A Base64-encoded MD5 hash that allows the recipient of a Platform Notification to verify this is a valid Platform Notification sent by eBay.
Recipient user ID of the notification. Only returned by Platform Notifications.
Note: GetCategories and other Trading API calls are designed to retrieve very large sets of metadata that change once a day or less often. To improve performance, these calls return cached responses when you request all available data (with no filters). When this occurs, this time value reflects the time the cached response was created. Thus, this value is not necessarily when the request was processed. However, if you specify an input filter to reduce the amount of data returned, the calls retrieve the latest data (not cached). When this occurs, this time value does reflect when the request was processed.
