NAME

eBay::API::XML::Call::GetAttributesCS

DESCRIPTION

SYNOPSIS

INHERITANCE

eBay::API::XML::Call::GetAttributesCS inherits from the eBay::API::XML::BaseCall class

Subroutines:

setAttributeSetID()

An array of characteristic setIDs (which always correspond to attribute set IDs). Each characteristic setcorresponds to a level in the eBay category hierarchy at which all items share common characteristics. Multiple categories can be mapped to the same characteristic set. AttributeSetIDs is an optional input. When IDs are specified, the call only returns meta-data for the corresponding characteristic sets. When no IDs are specified, the call returns all the current attribute meta-data in the system.

  RequiredInput: No
#    Argument: reference to an array  
                      of 'xs:int'

setAttributeSystemVersion()

A version of the Item Specifics definitions (attribute meta-data) for the site. Typically, an application passes the version value that was returned the last time the application executed this call. Filter that causes the call to return only the characteristic sets for which the attribute meta-data has changed since the specified version. If not specified, all characteristics sets are returned. The latest version value is not necessarily greater than the previous value that was returned. Therefore, when comparing versions, only compare whether the value has changed.

  RequiredInput: No
#    Argument: 'xs:string'

setIncludeCategoryMappingDetails()

If true, includes a list of CategoryMapping nodes in the response. Each CategoryMapping node specifies category information as well as attributes and values that your application can auto-fill for items listed in that category. See the eBay Web Services Guide for more information about options for maintaining category data and auto-filling Item Specifics.

  RequiredInput: No
#    Argument: 'xs:boolean'

getAttributeData()

A string containing a list of all the attributes that are applicable to the site (or characteristic sets in the request), along with related meta-data. The meta-data specifies all the possible values of each attribute, the logic for presenting attributes to a user, and rules for validating the user's selections. Individual elements are not described in the eBay schema format. For information about each element in the AttributeData string, see the attribute model documentation in the eBay Web Services guide (see links below).<br> <br> Because this is returned as a string, the XML markup elements are escaped with character entity references (e.g., &amp;lt;eBay&amp;gt;&amp;lt;Attributes&amp;gt; ...). See the appendices in the eBay Web Services guide for general information about string data types.

  Returned: Always
  Details: DetailLevel: none, ReturnAll
#    Returns: 'xs:string'

getAttributeSystemVersion()

Current version of the Item Specifics meta-data system for the site. This value changes each time changes are made to the meta-data. The current version value is not necessarily greater than the previous value. Therefore, when comparing versions, only compare whether the value has changed.

  Returned: Always
  Details: DetailLevel: none
#    Returns: 'xs:string'
