Brings back information on an item of which you know the unique Item ID.

You can retrieve an Item ID by:

  1. Using the API call to getAllItemIDs in conjunction with a machine, or
  2. Using the API call to getAllItemIDsByPublisherAttribute in conjunction with a publisher ID, name or folder, or
  3. Using the API call to getItemsFeaturingTracksByArtistName in conjunction with an artist name, or
  4. Outside of the API entirely, just looking at the very bottom of an item's landing page (in the case of this link, Item ID 9411).

To get information on an item, substitute [item_id] into the following URL:

http://www.everygamegoing.com/api/v1/getItemByItemID/[item_id]

Hitting this URL will return the following JSON response:

Whilst many of the key->value pairs in the response may be self-explanatory, the following table gives a little more information on what the key designates. (Of course, many of the values returned may be of no interest to the application you are producing!)
