This page is a translated version of the page Wikibase/EntityData and the translation is 12% complete.

This is a help page for 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 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. For example Special:EntityData?id=Q7251&format=json.
    Supported format suffixes are: html, json, rdf, nt, ttl, n3, php
  • If argument "redirect=force" is present, it forces a redirect regardless of the outcome.
