Collections

Note

These APIs are experimental and are currently being worked on. Endpoints may change without warning. Consider the v3 API if you need stability. The only authentication method available at the moment is the internal one.

The following API endpoints cover user created collections.

List

Note

This API requires authentication.

This endpoint allows you to list all collections authored by the specified user. The results are sorted by the most recently updated collection first.

GET /api/v4/accounts/account/(int:user_id|string:username)/collections/
Response JSON Object:
 
  • count (int) – The number of results for this query.
  • next (string) – The URL of the next page of results.
  • previous (string) – The URL of the previous page of results.
  • results (array) – An array of collections.

Detail

This endpoint allows you to fetch a single collection by its slug. It returns any public collection by the specified user. You can access a non-public collection only if it was authored by you, the authenticated user. If you have Admin:Curation permission you can see any collection belonging to the mozilla user.

GET /api/v4/accounts/account/(int:user_id|string:username)/collections/(string: collection_slug)/
Response JSON Object:
 
  • id (int) – The id for the collection.
  • addon_count (int) – The number of add-ons in this collection.
  • author.id (int) – The id of the author (creator) of the collection.
  • author.name (string) – The name of the author.
  • author.url (string) – The link to the profile page for of the author.
  • author.username (string) – The username of the author.

  • modified (string) – The date the collection was last updated.
  • name (string|object) – The name of the collection. (See translated fields).
  • public (boolean) – Whether the collection is listed - publicly viewable.
  • slug (string) – The name used in the URL.
  • url (string) – The (absolute) collection detail URL.
  • uuid (string) – A unique identifier for this collection; primarily used to count addon installations that come via this collection.

If the with_addons parameter is passed then addons in the collection are returned along with the detail. Add-ons returned are limited to the first 25 in the collection, in the default sort (popularity, descending). Filtering is as per collection addon list endpoint - i.e. defaults to only including public add-ons. Additional add-ons can be returned from the Collection Add-on list endpoint.

GET /api/v4/accounts/account/(int:user_id|string:username)/collections/(string: collection_slug)/?with_addons
Query Parameters:
 
  • filter (string) – The filter to apply.
Response JSON Object:
