eBay Finding APIVersion 1.13.0

getHistograms

This call retrieves category and/or aspect histogram information for the eBay category you specify using the categoryId field.

Usage Details

Histograms are item counts for the associated category or aspect value. Category histograms return histogram information for the specified eBay category, as well as for the immediate children categories of the specified category. Category histograms are returned for non-leaf categories only. Category histograms aren't returned for leaf categories, because they have no children categories.

Aspects are well-known, standardized characteristics of an item. For example, "Screen Size," "Processor Type," and "Processor Speed" could be aspects of Laptop PCs. Aspects can vary for different kinds of items. For example, the aspects of Laptop PCs are different from those of Women's Dresses (aspects for Women's Dresses might include "Sleeve Style," "Dress Length," and "Size"). Aspect histograms are returned for categories.

You can retrieve the eBay category ID numbers from the response of this call and from the eBay web site. You can also obtain a complete list of eBay categories with the Shopping API GetCategoryInfo call.

Call-specific Output Fields [Jump to standard fields]
aspectHistogramContainer AspectHistogramContainer Conditionally Response container for aspect histograms. Aspect histograms are returned for categories only.
aspectHistogramContainer
  .aspect
Aspect Conditionally,
repeatable: [1..*]
A characteristic of an item in a category. For example, "Optical Zoom", "Brand", and "Megapixels" could be aspects of the Digital Cameras category. Aspects are well-known, standardized characteristics of a category, and they vary from category to category (the aspects of "Men's Shoes" are different from those of "Digital Cameras"). A search request on the eBay site will often display aspects and their respective aspect values on the left-had side of a query response.

Aspects are extracted from item listing properties (such as item titles and subtitles), and represent the characteristics of active items. Values returned in the Aspect container can be used as inputs to the aspectFilter fields in a query to distill the items returned by the query. eBay generates aspects dynamically from the items currently listed; aspects provide a view into what is currently available on eBay. Because of this, aspect values returned one day cannot be guaranteed to be valid the next day.

The following graphic shows how eBay might return a set of aspects for the Digital Cameras category. In this graphic, "Product Type", "Brand", and "Megapixels" are aspects, and "Point & Shoot", "Canon", and "12.0 to 12.9 MP" are aspect values. Histogram values (item counts) are shown for each aspect value.

eBay Aspects
aspectHistogramContainer
  .aspect.valueHistogram
AspectValueHistogram Conditionally,
repeatable: [0..*]
Container that returns the name of the respective aspect value and the histogram (the number of available items) that share that item characteristic.

This value is not returned if there are no matching aspects for the category.
aspectHistogramContainer
  .aspect.valueHistogram
  [ attribute valueName ]

This value is not returned if there are no matching aspects for the category.
aspectHistogramContainer
  .aspect.valueHistogram.count
long Conditionally Number of items that share the characteristic the respective aspect value.
categoryHistogramContainer CategoryHistogramContainer Conditionally Response container for category histograms. This container is returned only when the specified category has children categories.

Note: Category histograms may not be available for some parent categories on the eBay Motors site.
categoryHistogramContainer
  .categoryHistogram
CategoryHistogram (Category) Conditionally,
repeatable: [0..*]
Statistical (item count) information on the categories that contain items that match the search criteria or specified category or categories. A category histogram contains information for up to 10 child categories. Search result total entries may not necessarily match the sum of category histogram item counts.

For search calls, the item count shows the distribution of matching items across each of the returned categories. A category histogram is not returned if there are no matching items or if the search is restricted to a single leaf category.

For getHistograms, the category histogram contains the total item count for the specified category and item counts for the child categories containing the most item listings. A category histogram is not returned if the specified category is a leaf category.

For categories associated with specific items, review the individual item containers returned in the search result.

categoryHistogramContainer
  .categoryHistogram
  .childCategoryHistogram
CategoryHistogram (Category) Conditionally,
repeatable: [0..10]
Container for histogram information pertaining to a child of the category specified in the request. Histograms return data on up to 10 children. Histograms are only a single level deep. That is, a given category histogram contains only immediate children.

categoryHistogramContainer
  .categoryHistogram.count

conditionHistogramContainer ConditionHistogramContainer Conditionally Response container for condition histograms. Returned for leaf and parent categories.

Only returned when you search the eBay US site. International items in US search results are included in the histogram counts.
conditionHistogramContainer
  .conditionHistogram
ConditionHistogram Conditionally,
repeatable: [0..*]
Statistical (item count) information on the condition of items that match the search criteria (or specified category). For example, the number of brand new items that match the query.

Each conditionHistogram specifies one condition and the number of matching items found. The list of all conditionHistogram containers returned represents the union of all conditions that were found in the item results. For example, if items were found in different categories, and if those categories support different sets of item conditions, then all those conditions are returned in the list, regardless of category.

If multiple items use the same condition ID, but some items use different display names for that condition, the histogram shows the site's default display name for that condition. This means that the condition name in a histogram may not always exactly match the condition names on the counted items.
conditionHistogramContainer
  .conditionHistogram.condition
Condition Conditionally The ID and name of a condition that was found in the item results.
conditionHistogramContainer
  .conditionHistogram.condition
  .conditionDisplayName
string Conditionally The human-readable label for the item condition. Display names are localized for the site on which they're listed (not necessarily the site on which they're viewed).

In item results, this is only returned when the seller specified the item's condition using a structured format eBay recognizes (e.g., conditionId or an older item specifics format).

When conditionId is also present: Most categories use the same display name for the same condition ID. Some categories may override the display name based on buyer expectations for items in the category. For example, condition ID 1000 could be called "New" in one category and "New with tags" in another. If an item is listed in two categories, the primary category controls the display name.

Behind the scenes, eBay's search engine uses the ID (not the display name) to determine whether items are new, used, or refurbished. So, if you need to normalize the conditions across categories (such as to group items by condition), it may be easier to use the ID and then show the varying display names for reference.

In condition histograms: If you search against a specific category and some items match based on their secondary category, the histogram only shows the display name if the secondary category supports the condition. (Condition IDs and names are dependent on the primary category.) However, the histogram shows the condition ID and item counts. This should only occur in a very small percent of results. Histograms may support display names in these cases later in 2011. As a workaround, you can fill in the missing name based on the "Item Condition IDs and Names" (link below) or based on the condition from an applicable item in the results.

For example, suppose a seller lists a concert T-shirt in a clothing category with the condition "New without tags" (1500), and also in a music accessories secondary category (where "New without tags" isn't a recognized condition). If you specify the music accessories category in your request, the condition ID (1500) is shown in the histogram, but not the display name. However, the display name is shown within the items.

See Item Condition IDs and Names for a list of display names and the typical meaning of each condition.

conditionHistogramContainer
  .conditionHistogram.condition
  .conditionId
int Conditionally The numeric ID (for example, 1000) for the item condition.

In item results, this is only returned when the seller listed the item with a condition ID. Some categories don't support or require condition IDs (for example, most Antiques categories don't).

If you specify Condition in itemFilter, the response returns items with the correctly matching condition(s), even if conditionId is not returned. For example, if you specify a value of "New" or "1000" in the item filter, the response only returns new items.

See Item Condition IDs and Names for a list of display names and the typical meaning of each condition.

conditionHistogramContainer
  .conditionHistogram.count
int Conditionally The number of items found that match the condition. Only counts items where the seller specified the condition by using item.conditionId.
Standard Output Fields  
ack AckValue Always Indicates whether or not errors or warnings were generated during the processing of the request.

Applicable values:

Failure
eBay encountered a fatal error during the processing of the request, causing the request to fail. When a serious application-level error occurs, the error is returned instead of the business data.
PartialFailure
eBay successfully processed the request, but one or more non-fatal errors occurred during the processing. For best results, requests should return without warning messages. Inspect the message details and resolve any problems before resubmitting the request.
Success
eBay successfully processed the request and the business data is returned in the response. Note that it is possible for a response to return Success, but still not contain the expected data in the result.
Warning
The request was successfully processed, but eBay encountered a non-fatal error during the processing. For best results, requests should return without warnings. Inspect the warning details and resolve the problem before resubmitting the request.

Code so that your app gracefully handles any future changes to this list.
errorMessage ErrorMessage Conditionally Description of an error or warning that occurred when eBay processed the request. Not returned if the ack value is Success.
errorMessage.error ErrorData Conditionally,
repeatable: [0..*]
Details about a single error.
errorMessage.error.category ErrorCategory Conditionally There are three categories of errors: request errors, application errors, and system errors.

Applicable values:

Application
An error occurred due to a problem with the request, with the most likely source being the application sending the request. For example, the request is missing a required data element or it contains an invalid field. The problem must be corrected before the request can be resent. Inspect the error message to find the cause of the problem. If the problem is due to an application error, modify the application and resend the request. If the error is due to invalid data, the source of the data must be corrected before you resend the resend request to eBay.
Request
An error occurred due to a problem with the request, with the most likely source being missing or invalid data in the request. The problem must be corrected before the request can be retried. Inspect the error message to find the cause of the problem. If the problem is a result of end-user data, alert the end-user to the problem and provide the means for them to correct the problem. Once the problem is resolved, resend the request to eBay.
System
Indicates that an error has occurred on the eBay system side. For example, a database or server could be down. Inspect the error message to find the cause of the problem. If the problem is on the eBay side, an application can retry the request as-is a reasonable number of times (eBay recommends twice). If the error persists, contact Developer Technical Support. Once the problem has been resolved, the request may be resent in its original form.

Code so that your app gracefully handles any future changes to this list.
errorMessage.error.domain string Conditionally Name of the domain in which the error occurred.
domain values:
Marketplace
A business or validation error occurred in the service.
SOA
An exception occurred in the Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) framework.
errorMessage.error.errorId long Conditionally A unique code that identifies the particular error condition that occurred. Your application can use error codes as identifiers in your customized error-handling algorithms.
errorMessage.error.exceptionId token Conditionally Unique identifier for an exception associated with an error.
errorMessage.error.message string Conditionally A detailed description of the condition that caused in the error.
errorMessage.error.parameter ErrorParameter (string) Conditionally,
repeatable: [0..*]
Various warning and error messages return one or more variables that contain contextual information about the error. This is often the field or value that triggered the error.
errorMessage.error.parameter
  [ attribute name ]
string Conditionally Various warning and error messages return one or more variables that contain contextual information about the error. This is often the field or value that triggered the error.
errorMessage.error.severity ErrorSeverity Conditionally Indicates whether the reported problem is fatal (an error) or is less- severe (a warning). Review the error message details for information on the cause.

If the request fails and the application is the source of the error (for example, a required element is missing), update the application before you retry the request. If the problem is due to incorrect user data, alert the end-user to the problem and provide the means for them to correct the data. Once the problem in the application or data is resolved, re-send the request to eBay.

If the source of the problem is on eBay's side, you can retry the request a reasonable number of times (eBay recommends you try the request twice). If the error persists, contact Developer Technical Support. Once the problem has been resolved, you can resend the request in its original form.

If a warning occurs, warning information is returned in addition to the business data. Normally, you do not need to resend the request (as the original request was successful). However, depending on the cause of the warning, you might need to contact the end user, or eBay, to effect a long term solution to the problem.

Applicable values:

Error
eBay encountered a fatal error during the processing of the request, causing the request to fail. When eBay encounters an error, it returns error data instead of the requested business data. Inspect the error details and resolve the problem before resubmitting the request.
Warning
The request was successfully processed, but eBay encountered a non-fatal error during the processing that could affect the data returned. For example, eBay might have changed the value of an input field. In this case, eBay returns a successful response, but it also returns a warning. For best results, requests should return without warnings. Inspect the warning details and resolve the problem before resubmitting the request.

Code so that your app gracefully handles any future changes to this list.
errorMessage.error.subdomain string Conditionally Name of the subdomain in which the error occurred.
subdomain values:
Finding
The error is specific to the Finding service.
MarketplaceCommon
The error is common to all Marketplace services.
timestamp dateTime Always This value represents the date and time when eBay processed the request. This value is returned in GMT, the ISO 8601 date and time format (YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS.SSSZ). See the "dateTime" type for information about the time format, and for details on converting to and from the GMT time zone.
version string Always The release version that eBay used to process the request. Developer Technical Support may ask you for the version value if you work with them to troubleshoot issues.

Note: The version in use is normally the latest release version, as specified in the release notes.
