Groups feed

Applies to the following products: 
Questionmark OnDemand
Questionmark Perception
Applies to the following Perception versions: 
Perception 5.7

The Groups feed returns group data to the client. The Groups feed includes a connection to related Results.

This page includes the following sections:


The Groups feed includes the following four properties:



Example value

GroupGroupKey the primary identifier for a group.


GroupPath the path of the group; that is, the ancestors up the tree from this group.

GroupPath includes the GroupName, so you do not need to join these two together.


GroupName the name of the group.

GroupName is already included in GroupPath, so you do not need to append GroupName to GroupPath.


TenantID used to filter data for the Questionmark account you want to access the result data for. The tenant ID is the customer ID for an OnDemand account; for Perception users, it is the name of the specific shared repository are you trying to access the result data for. It is checked against the supplied credentials.


Relationships to other feeds

The Groups feed includes one relationship: one group can be linked to zero-or-more results.

This allows the client to see all results for a given group.

Atom attributes

The Atom field <title> is populated with the group name.

The Atom field  <updated> is populated with the finished time of the batch in which the record was imported.

Typical OData commands

Questionmark's Results API uses the Microsoft implementation of OData and thus supports all the commands found at:

OData: URI Conventions

Typical OData commands and examples of these commands that can be applied to the Groups feed include:


$filter=GroupName eq '<group name>'

...where <group name> is the name of a group you want to filter by.

(As shown in the chart here, 'eq' means 'equal.')
