GET /api/{service}[/versions/]{ID}/ratings/summary

Retrieves a summary of the ratings for a resource.

This operation is used by the following services:

  • APIs service
  • Apps service
  • Groups service

Authorization Roles/Permissions: Must be logged in and have permission to view the requested resources. If the user is logged in but doesn't have permission to view certain resources, the operation works, but limited (or empty) results are returned.

Note: Generally, the Akana API Platform maintains averaged ratings for each version of an app or API, aggregating and averaging the ratings based on the specific version that the user is rating rather than for the app or API as a whole. The exception to this is the search interface, where the app or API is displayed as a single line item with the average rating of all versions combined.
