Look up a resource

You can look up specific resources by making a GET request that includes the $id (URL-encoded URI) of the resource in the request path.
API format

The container where the resources are located ("global" or "tenant").
The type of resource to retrieve from the Schema Library. Valid types are datatypes , mixins , schemas , and classes .
The URL-encoded $id URI or meta:altId of the resource.
curl -X GET \ \
  -H 'Accept: application/vnd.adobe.xed+json; version=1' \
  -H 'Authorization: Bearer {ACCESS_TOKEN}' \
  -H 'x-api-key: {API_KEY}' \
  -H 'x-gw-ims-org-id: {IMS_ORG}' \
  -H 'x-sandbox-name: {SANDBOX_NAME}'

Resource lookup requests require a version be included in the Accept header. The following Accept headers are available for lookups:
application/vnd.adobe.xed+json; version={MAJOR_VERSION}
Raw with $ref and allOf , has titles and descriptions.
application/vnd.adobe.xed-full+json; version={MAJOR_VERSION}
$ref and allOf resolved, has titles and descriptions.
application/vnd.adobe.xed-notext+json; version={MAJOR_VERSION}
Raw with $ref and allOf , no titles or descriptions.
application/vnd.adobe.xed-full-notext+json; version={MAJOR_VERSION}
$ref and allOf resolved, no titles or descriptions.
application/vnd.adobe.xed-full-desc+json; version={MAJOR_VERSION}
$ref and allOf resolved, descriptors included.
If supplying the major version only (1, 2, 3, etc), the registry will return the latest minor version (.1, .2, .3, etc) automatically.
A successful response returns the details of the resource. The fields that are returned depend on the Accept header sent in the request. Experiment with different Accept headers to compare the responses and determine which header is best for your use case.
