This is a help page for d:Special:EntityData that is being used in Wikibase repository setups (like Wikidata).


In order to use it, you need to apply entity id as a subpage (like d:Special:EntityData/Q7251) or as "id=" argument (like Special:EntityData?id=Q7251)

In order to determine the output format, there are several ways to do so:

  • Content negotiation: If "ACCEPT: MIME type(s)" is present in request headers, the special page, tries to find the most suitable format it can support. For more information read Content negotiation article in English Wikipedia. Default supported content types are:
    • "text/html" (will redirect to the entity page)
    • "application/json" (Wikibase JSON)
    • "application/rdf+xml", "application/xml", "text/xml" (RDF/XML)
    • "application/n-triples", "text/n-triples", "text/plain" (N-Triples)
    • "text/turtle", "application/x-turtle" (Turtle)
    • "text/n3", "text/rdf+n3" (Notation3)
    • "application/vnd.php.serialized" (PHP serialization)
  • Using "format" argument. So for example Special:EntityData?id=Q7251&format=json. formats are: html, json, rdf, nt, ttl, n3, php.
  • Using format : For example d:Special:EntityData/Q7251.json. Supported format suffixes are: html, json, rdf, nt, ttl, n3, php

You can also determine a fixed revision id using a "revision" argument (for example Special:EntityData?id=Q7251&revision=123456). (Until July 2019, "oldid" was also accepted.)

If argument "redirect=force" is present, it forces a redirect regardless of the outcome.
