External StubHub Clients wishing to access our internal Listing Catalog data.
The aim of this document is to provide some background and examples for how to retrieve data from StubHub’s Listing Catalog Service (or LCS) using our proprietary query string structure.
1) What kind of data can I get from the Listing Catalog Service (LCS)?
The Listing Catalog Service provides detailed Ticket Listing and Event data, as well as information about the classifications of that data.
2) How is the data organized?
The data resides within what are called ‘Index Documents’ where each unique document instance refers to a unique occurrence of a Genre, Geo, Event or Ticket (ticket listing) data set. Within each document there are ‘Fields’ which provide the name and value of a single attribute that can be searched for. For example, a Client could enter a search query string for all Ticket document instances where the value of the named ‘Price’ field is within a certain range: [50 TO 100].
3) What else do I need to know to get started with using LCS?
Section 2 goes into a general overview of the Listing Catalog Service and how it interfaces with Client applications.
Section 3 provides a Quickstart Guide which will show some typical examples for how you can write search queries against the Listing Catalog Service.
Later in this document, we will provide more detail on both the organization of the data, as well as the various query string conventions used to search for that data. Finally, Section 4 provides further detail about the specific field level data available for each major indexed document type.
4) Third-Party Documentation on SOLR
LCS was built based on the SOLR-Lucene Text Search Apache Open Source Software. It uses a HTTP Request; and Response interface.The response may be specified to be formatted in various XML-based formats, such as JSON.
To get more information about SOLR and how this affects the LCS Query syntax; please refer to the following URLs:
