Parameters common to every Groove RESTful API

This topic describes parameters that are common to all methods in the Groove RESTful API.

Parameter Type Description
accessToken string Required. A valid developer authentication Access Token , used to identify the third-party application using the Groove RESTful API.
language string Optional. The two-letter standard code identifying the requested language for the response content. If not specified, defaults to the country's primary language.
country string Optional. The standard two-letter code that identifies the country/region of the user. If not specified, the value defaults to the geolocated country/region of the client's IP address. Responses will be filtered to provide only those that match the user's country/region.
contentType string Optional. "xml" or "json". Specifies the requested format for response serialization. Default is json. This parameter should be used only when it's not possible to customize standard HTTP headers; otherwise the recommended way to choose serialization format is by using the Accept header.
continuationToken string Optional. A Continuation Token provided in an earlier service response and optionally passed back to the service to request the continuation of an incomplete list of content.
jsonp string Optional. The name of the JavaScript callback function as defined by the JSONP pattern.

Some of the APIs also require a user authentication token in the Authorization header of the request in order to access user-authenticated features such as collection management or full track streaming. See User Authentication for more information on how to create a user authentication header.
