Getting taste profile info

This tutorial shows how to get information about a particular taste profile.

Details

The catalog/profile method helps you find out information about a taste profile. In particular, the profile method returns the type of the taste profile, the total number of items in the taste profile, the total number of items that have been successfully resolved to Echo Nest items, a list of any pending tickets for the taste profile.

Query by ID example

If you know the ID of a taste profile, you can get information about the taste profile, directly from the ID. Any caller that has a catalog ID, regardless of who created the catalog can get information about the taste profile with the catalog/profile method.

Response

{
    "response": {
        "catalog": {
            "id": "CAGWSLT12C0290DEE7", 
            "name": "Song catalog for WHTZ", 
            "pending_tickets": [], 
            "resolved": 86, 
            "total": 137, 
            "type": "song"
        }, 
        "status": {
            "code": 0, 
            "message": "Success", 
            "version": "4.2"
        }
    }
}

Query by name example

If you know the name of a taste profile, you can look up the taste profile information based upon the name of the taste profile. Since each API key defines its own taste profile namespace, you can only lookup taste profile by name that were created with your API key.
