Overview

The GetFeedback Reporting API is simple, modern, RESTful, and JSON-based. All API access is over HTTPS to the api.getfeedback.com domain. Appropriate HTTP verbs are used to manipulate resources.

Authentication

Authorization: Bearer mF_9.B5f-4.1JqM

API bearer tokens should be sent in an HTTP Authorization header. Follow the RFC 6750 spec section 2.1.

Representation

All dates or timestamps are returned and expected as ISO 8601 strings.

The Accept HTTP header must always be sent to signify the correct resource representation. At this time only application/json is supported.

HTTP Request

GET /surveys/:survey_id/responses

Query Parameters

Parameter Description
since Timestamp from which to return responses. If set with an ISO 8601 datestamp, responses are returned in ascending timestamp ordered by the since_field (see below). If not set or an incorrect format is passed, returns responses in descending timestamp order by created_at.
since_field If using since, date on responses to compare to. Can be created_at, updated_at, or completed_at. When set to completed_at, status is filtered to only completed responses. Defaults to created_at.
until If using since, timestamp to which to return responses. If set with an ISO 8601 datestamp, it will be the endcap date to the since param.
status Can be set to started or completed and then only responses in that state will be returned. If not set, returns all responses.
per_page Responses to return per page. Defaults to 30. Maximum 100.
page Page number when paging through responses. Note there is no server cursor state.

Definitions

merge_map: Parameters that were appended to the URL when the taker opened the survey.

component_id: Identifier for the survey question the answer represents.
