REST API: GET profile

This is a simple method to request all information from a profile given its ID. The profile information can be requested with an HTTP GET call to the following URL:

https://api.copernica.com/v3/profile/$id?access_token=xxxx

The $id should be replaced with the numerical identifier of the profile you're requesting the information of.

Returned fields

This method returns profile information. The profile object contains the following properties:

  • ID: Numerical ID of the profile
  • fields: Associative array of field names and values
  • interests: Array of interests for the profile
  • database: ID of the database where the profile is stored
  • secret: The "secret" code linked to a profile
  • created: Timestamp for creation of profile in YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss format
  • modified: Timestamp for last edit of profile in YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss format
  • removed: Indicates whether the profile has been removed or not

JSON example

The JSON for a profile might look something like this:

{  
   "ID":"18381",
   "fields":{  
      "name":"Test",
      "email":"test@example.com",
   },
   "interests":[  
      "baseball",
      "soccer"
   ],
   "database":"7616",
   "secret":"e5903b43c08g011f7a1e1f2644f618be",
   "created":"2013-01-06 14:19:51",
   "modified":"2019-02-21 13:26:21",
   "removed":false
}

PHP example

The following PHP script demonstrates how to call the API method.

// dependencies
require_once('copernica_rest_api.php');
    
// change this into your access token
$api = new CopernicaRestAPI("your-access-token", 3);

// do the call, and print result
print_r($api->get("profile/{$profileID}"));

The example above requires the CopernicaRestApi class.
