ParticipantRegisteredDate the date that the participant was registered in Questionmark.


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 Participants feed includes two relationships: a participant can be linked to zero-or-more results and to zero-or-more topic scores.

This allows the client to see all results and topic scores for a given participant.

Atom attributes

The Atom field <title> is populated with the participant 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 Participants feed include:


$filter=ParticipantName eq '<participant name>'

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

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




$orderby=ParticipantLastName, ParticipantFirstName
