  • Convenience global endpoint for listing and searching through entities (e.g. /data/list?types=object&subtypes=blog&metadata[status]=published&query=foo&sort=time_created::asc)

    • /data/entity
    • /data/list
    • /data/members
    • /data/user/friends
    • /data/user/friends_of


Endpoint accessibility

Note that /data endpoints can only be accessed using elgg/Ajax module. Endpoints are protected, and will only be accessible from the page that was generated for current session. That means your data will be safe from mining.

Entity data

You can use adapter:entity,$entity_type:$entity_subtype or more generic adapter:entity,$entity_type hook to add more export data for an entity.
