Response Body

The response body is in the form of an RSS channel, and includes the items listed below. The RSS version is 1.0. The title of the RSS channel is the title of the resource for which followers are being listed; in this case, the name of the app. Each item in the channel represents one follower, and includes the information listed below.

Name Description
title The username of the follower.
category An array of roles that the follower has. Each role includes two name/value pairs, value and domain. For example, value might be follower and domain might be uddi:soa.com:relationshiptype, indicating that the user is a follower of the resource.
guid The unique ID for the item; in this case, the following ID.
Action

A set of one or more name/value pairs expressing the action available to the follower. Because following a resource is a yes/no activity, the possible action of a follower will always be to stop following. For example:

"value" : "action.follow.stop",
"label" : "Stop Following"
Image A URL to the user's image, if set up. If the user hasn't uploaded an image, the URL to the default user image is included.
EntityReferences One or more. For each: Title, GUID, Category
