feed APIv1.2.0


This method retrieves an array containing the details and status of all schedules based on the specified feed_type. Use this method to find a schedule if you do not know the schedule_id.


Resource URI (production)

GET https://api.ebay.com/sell/feed/v1/schedule?

URI parameters

feed_typestringThe feedType associated with the schedule.

Occurrence: Required

limitintegerThe maximum number of schedules that can be returned on each page of the paginated response. Use this parameter in conjunction with the offset parameter to control the pagination of the output.

Note: This feature employs a zero-based list, where the first item in the list has an offset of 0.

For example, if offset is set to 10 and limit is set to 10, the call retrieves schedules 11 thru 20 from the result set.

If this parameter is omitted, the default value is used.

Default: 10

Maximum: 500

Occurrence: Optional

offsetintegerThe number of schedules to skip in the result set before returning the first schedule in the paginated response.

Combine offset with the limit query parameter to control the items returned in the response. For example, if you supply an offset of 0 and a limit of 10, the first page of the response contains the first 10 items from the complete list of items retrieved by the call. If offset is 10 and limit is 20, the first page of the response contains items 11-30 from the complete result set. If this query parameter is not set, the default value is used and the first page of records is returned.

Default: 0

Occurrence: Optional

HTTP request headers

All requests made to eBay REST operations require you to provide the Authorization HTTP header for authentication authorization.

HTTP response headers

Output container/fieldTypeDescription
hrefstringThe path to the call URI that produced the current page of results.

Occurrence: Always

limitintegerThe value of the limit parameter submitted in the request, which is the maximum number of schedules to return per page, from the result set. A result set is the complete set of schedules returned by the method.

Note: Though this parameter is not required to be submitted in the request, the parameter defaults to 10 if omitted.

Note: If this is the last or only page of the result set, the page may contain fewer tasks than the limit value. To determine the number of pages in a result set, divide the total value (total number of tasks matching input criteria) by this limit value, and then round up to the next integer. For example, if the total value was 120 (120 total tasks) and the limit value was 50 (show 50 tasks per page), the total number of pages in the result set is three, so the seller would have to make three separate getSchedules calls to view all tasks matching the input criteria.

Occurrence: Always

nextstringThe path to the call URI for the next page of results. This value is returned if there is an additional page of results to return from the result set.

Occurrence: Conditional

offsetintegerThe number of results skipped in the result set before listing the first returned result. This value can be set in the request with the offset query parameter.

Note: The items in a paginated result set use a zero-based list where the first item in the list has an offset of 0.

Occurrence: Always

prevstringThe path to the call URI for the previous page of results. This is returned if there is a previous page of results from the result set.

Occurrence: Conditional

schedulesarray of UserScheduleResponseAn array of the schedules on this page. An empty array is returned if the filter criteria excludes all tasks.

Occurrence: Always

schedules.scheduleIdstringThe ID of the schedule. This ID is generated when the schedule was created by the createSchedule method.

Occurrence: Always

schedules.creationDatestringThe creation date of the schedule in hours based on the 24-hour Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) clock.

Occurrence: Always

schedules.feedTypestringThe feedType associated with the schedule.

Occurrence: Always

schedules.lastModifiedDatestringThe date the schedule was last modified.

Occurrence: Always

schedules.preferredTriggerDayOfMonthintegerThe preferred day of the month to trigger the schedule. This field can be used with preferredTriggerHour for monthly schedules. The last day of the month is used for numbers larger than the number of days in the month.

Occurrence: Conditional

schedules.preferredTriggerDayOfWeekDayOfWeekEnumThe preferred day of the week to trigger the schedule. This field can be used with preferredTriggerHour for weekly schedules.

Occurrence: Conditional

schedules.preferredTriggerHourstringThe preferred two-digit hour of the day to trigger the schedule.

Occurrence: Conditional

schedules.scheduleEndDatestringThe timestamp on which the report generation (subscription) ends. After this date, the schedule status becomes INACTIVE.

Occurrence: Always
