Discovery

Note

These APIs are experimental and are currently being worked on. Endpoints may change without warning.

Discovery Content

This endpoint allows you to fetch content for the new Discovery Pane in Firefox (about:addons).

GET /api/v3/discovery/
Response JSON Object:
 
  • count (int) – The number of results for this query.
  • results (array) – The array containing the results for this query.
  • results[].heading (string) – The heading for this item. May contain some HTML tags.
  • results[].description (string|null) – The description for this item, if any. May contain some HTML tags.
  • results[].is_recommendation (boolean) – If this item was from the recommendation service, rather than static curated content.
  • results[].addon (object) – The add-on for this item. Only a subset of fields are present: id, current_version (with only the compatibility and files fields present), guid, icon_url, name, slug, theme_data, type and url.

Discovery Recommendations

If a telemetry client id is passed as a parameter to the discovery pane api endpoint then static curated content is amended with recommendations from the recommendation service. The same number of results will be returned as a standard discovery response and only extensions (not themes) are recommeded. Only valid, publicly available addons are shown.

E.g. a standard discovery pane will display 7 items, 4 extensions and 3 themes. Up to 4 extensions will be replaced with recommendations; the 3 themes will not be replaced. The API will still return a total of 7 items.

GET /api/v3/discovery/?telemetry-client-id=12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890abcdef
