eBay Trading API891

GetVeROReportStatus

Retrieves status information about VeRO reported items you have submitted. You can receive the status of individual items you have reported or, by specifying VeROReportPacketID, you can retrieve status for all items reported with a given VeROReportItems request. You can also retrieve items that were reported during a given time period. If no input parameters are specified, status is returned on all items you have reported in the last two years. You must be a member of the Verified Rights Owner (VeRO) Program to use this call.

Argument Type Occurrence Meaning
Call-specific Input Fields [Jump to standard fields]
IncludeReportedItemDetails boolean Optional Set to true to return reported item details when you specify VeROReportPacketID in the request.
Default: false.
ItemID ItemIDType (string) Optional Item ID for an item reported for alleged infringement. Applies to items reported with VeROReportItems or by other means (e.g., through the web flow).
Max length: 19 (Note: The eBay database specifies 38. Currently, Item IDs are usually 9 to 12 digits).
Pagination PaginationType Optional Contains the data controlling the pagination of the returned values: how many items are returned per page of data (per call) and the number of the page to return with the current call.
Pagination.EntriesPerPage int Optional This integer value is used to specify the maximum number of entries to return in a single "page" of data. This value, along with the number of entries that match the input criteria, will determine the total pages (see PaginationResult.TotalNumberOfPages) in the result set. For most Trading API calls, the maximum value is 200 and the default value is 25 entries per page.

For GetOrders, the maximum value is 100 and the default value is 25 orders per page.

For GetUserDisputes, this value is hard-coded at 200, and any pagination input is ignored.

For GetProducts, the maximum value is 20, and any higher values are ignored.
Pagination.PageNumber int Optional Specifies the number of the page of data to return in the current call. Default is 1 for most calls. For some calls, the default is 0. Specify a positive value equal to or lower than the number of pages available (which you determine by examining the results of your initial request). See the documentation for other individual calls to determine the correct default value.
Min: 1. Default: 1.
TimeFrom dateTime Optional Limits returned items to only those that were submitted on or after the date-time specified. If specified, TimeTo must also be specified. Express the date-time in the format YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS, and in GMT. (For information on how to convert between your local time zone and GMT, see Time Values Note.) Applies to items reported with VeROReportItems or by other means (e.g., through the web flow). Infringement reporting data is maintained for two years after the date of submission. This field is ignored if VeROReportPacketID or ItemID is specified.
TimeTo dateTime Optional Limits returned items to only those that were submitted on or before the date-time specified. If specified, TimeFrom must also be specified. Express date-time in the format YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS, and in GMT. (For information on how to convert between your local time zone and GMT, see Time Values Note.) Applies to items reported with VeROReportItems or by other means (e.g., through the web flow). Infringement reporting data is maintained for two years after the date of submission. This field is ignored if VeROReportPacketID or ItemID is specified.
VeROReportPacketID long Optional Packet identifier associated with the reported items for which you want to retrieve status. By default, reported item details are not returned when you specify the packet ID in the request. Applies only to items reported with VeROReportItems.
Standard Input Fields  
ErrorLanguage string Optional Use ErrorLanguage to return error strings for the call in a different language from the language commonly associated with the site that the requesting user is registered with. Specify the standard RFC 3066 language identification tag (e.g., en_US).

See Tags for the Identification of Languages.

MessageID string Optional Most Trading API calls support a MessageID element in the request and a CorrelationID element in the response. If you pass in a MessageID in a request, the same value will be returned in the CorrelationID field in the response. Pairing these values can help you track and confirm that a response is returned for every request and to match specific responses to specific requests. If you do not pass a MessageID value in the request, CorrelationID is not returned.

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.
Version string Conditional The version number of the API code that you are programming against (e.g., 859). The version you specify for a call has these basic effects:
- It indicates the version of the code lists and other data that eBay should use to process your request.
- It indicates the schema version you are using.
You need to use a version that is greater than or equal to the lowest supported version.

For the SOAP API: If you are using the SOAP API, this field is required. Specify the version of the WSDL your application is using.

For the XML API: If you are using the XML API, this field has no effect. Instead, specify the version in the X-EBAY-API-COMPATIBILITY-LEVEL HTTP header. (If you specify Version in the body of an XML API request and it is different from the value in the HTTP header, eBay returns an informational warning that the value in the HTTP header was used instead.)

See:
    Routing the Request (Gateway URLs)
    eBay Schema Versioning Strategy
    Lowest Supported Version

WarningLevel WarningLevelCodeType Optional Controls whether or not to return warnings when the application passes unrecognized or deprecated elements in a request.

An unrecognized element is one that is not defined in any supported version of the schema. Schema element names are case-sensitive, so using WarningLevel can also help you remove any potential hidden bugs within your application due to incorrect case or spelling in field names before you put your application into the Production environment.

WarningLevel only validates elements; it doesn't validate XML attributes. It also doesn't control warnings related to user-entered strings or numbers, or warnings for logical errors.

We recommend that you only use this during development and debugging. Do not use this in requests performed in the Production environment.

Applicable values:

High
(in) Return warnings when the application passes unrecognized or deprecated elements in a request.
Low
(in) Do not return warnings when the application passes unrecognized or deprecated elements in a request. This is the default value if WarningLevel is not specified.

See Warning Level.

repeatable: [0..*]
Contains the data and status of a reported item.
ReportedItemDetails
  .ReportedItem.ItemID
ItemIDType (string) Conditionally The unique identifier (ItemID) of the item reported for copyright, trademark, or intellectual property right infringment.

This field is always returned with the ReportedItem container.

This field is always returned with the ReportedItem container.

Applicable values:

ClarificationRequired
(out) The VeRO report request for the item has been received by eBay, but additional clarification is needed before eBay can end the item.
CustomCode
(out) Reserved for internal or future use.
Received
(out) The VeRO report request for the item has been received by eBay.
Removed
(out) The reported item has been ended by eBay.
SubmissionFailed
(out) The VeRO report request for the item failed.
Submitted
(out) The VeRO report request for the item has been submitted to eBay.

VeROReportPacketID long Conditionally The packet ID for status being returned.
VeROReportPacketStatus VeROReportPacketStatusCodeType Conditionally Status of the packet.

Applicable values:

CustomCode
(out) Reserved for internal or future use.
InProcess
(out) The packet is being processed by eBay.
Processed
(out) The packet has been processed by eBay. Each item within the packet has a status of Removed, SubmissionFailed, or ClarificationRequired.
Received
(out) The packet has been received by eBay.

Standard Output Fields  
Ack AckCodeType Always A token representing the application-level acknowledgement code that indicates the response status (e.g., success). The AckCodeType list specifies the possible values for the Ack field.

Applicable values:

CustomCode
(out) Reserved for internal or future use.
Failure
(out) Request processing failed
Success
(out) Request processing succeeded
Warning
(out) Request processing completed with warning information being included in the response message

(Not all values in AckCodeType apply to this field.)
Build string Always This refers to the specific software build that eBay used when processing the request and generating the response. This includes the version number plus additional information. eBay Developer Support may request the build information when helping you resolve technical issues.
CorrelationID string Conditionally Most Trading API calls support a MessageID element in the request and a CorrelationID element in the response. If you pass in a MessageID in a request, the same value will be returned in the CorrelationID field in the response. Pairing these values can help you track and confirm that a response is returned for every request and to match specific responses to specific requests. If you do not pass a MessageID value in the request, CorrelationID is not returned.

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.
Errors ErrorType Conditionally,
repeatable: [0..*]
A list of application-level errors (if any) that occurred when eBay processed the request.

See Error Handling.

Errors.ErrorClassification ErrorClassificationCodeType Conditionally API errors are divided between two classes: system errors and request errors.

Applicable values:

CustomCode
(out) Reserved for internal or future use.
RequestError
(out) An error has occurred either as a result of a problem in the sending application or because the application's end-user has attempted to submit invalid data (or missing data). In these cases, do not retry the request. The problem must be corrected before the request can be made again. If the problem is due to something in the application (such as a missing required field), the application must be changed. If the problem is a result of end-user data, the application must alert the end-user to the problem and provide the means for the end-user to correct the data. Once the problem in the application or data is resolved, resend the request to eBay with the corrected data.
SystemError
(out) Indicates that an error has occurred on the eBay system side, such as a database or server down. 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.

Errors.ErrorCode token 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. See the "Errors by Number" document.
Errors.ErrorParameters ErrorParameterType Conditionally,
repeatable: [0..*]
This optional element carries a list of context-specific error variables that indicate details about the error condition. These are useful when multiple instances of ErrorType are returned.
Errors.ErrorParameters
  [ attribute ParamID ]
string Conditionally This optional element carries a list of context-specific error variables that indicate details about the error condition. These are useful when multiple instances of ErrorType are returned.
Errors.ErrorParameters.Value string Conditionally The value of the variable (e.g., the attribute set ID)
Errors.LongMessage string Conditionally A more detailed description of the condition that raised the error.
Errors.SeverityCode SeverityCodeType Conditionally Indicates whether the error is a severe error (causing the request to fail) or an informational error (a warning) that should be communicated to the user.

Applicable values:

CustomCode
(out) Reserved for internal or future use.
Error
(out) The request that triggered the error was not processed successfully. When a serious application-level error occurs, the error is returned instead of the business data.

If the source of the problem is within the application (such as a missing required element), change the application before you retry the request.
  • If the problem is due to end-user input data, please 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, you can attempt to re-send the request to eBay.
  • If the source of the problem is on eBay's 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.


See the Compatible Application Check section of the eBay Features Guide for more information.
Warning
(out) The request was processed successfully, but something occurred that may affect your application or the user. For example, eBay may have changed a value the user sent in. In this case, eBay returns a normal, successful response and also returns the warning.

When a warning occurs, the error is returned in addition to the business data. In this case, you do not need to retry the request (as the original request was successful). However, depending on the cause or nature of the warning, you might need to contact either the end user or eBay to effect a long term solution to the problem to prevent it from reoccurring in the future.

Errors.ShortMessage string Conditionally A brief description of the condition that raised the error.
HardExpirationWarning string Conditionally Expiration date of the user's authentication token. Only returned within the 7-day period prior to a token's expiration. To ensure that user authentication tokens are secure and to help avoid a user's token being compromised, tokens have a limited life span. A token is only valid for a period of time (set by eBay). After this amount of time has passed, the token expires and must be replaced with a new token.
Timestamp dateTime Always This value represents the date and time when eBay processed the request. The time zone of this value is GMT and the format is the ISO 8601 date and time format (YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS.SSSZ). See the Time Values section in the eBay Features Guide for information about this time format and converting to and from the GMT time zone.

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.
Version string Always The version of the response payload schema. Indicates the version of the schema that eBay used to process the request. See the Standard Data for All Calls section in the eBay Features Guide for information on using the response version when troubleshooting CustomCode values that appear in the response.
