Request User Items

This HTTP endpoint allows you to request the list of items that belong to a user. These are referred to as item instances. Item instances will only be returned by this method if they have remaining uses, or are unlimited-use items. This should be done after receiving a callback or successful transaction event, as well as each time the game loads in order to check for un-credited items in the inventory.

Note: This call should only be made from a server. To retrieve a user's items from your client, see the requestUserItemList method.

Required params:
  • api_key: The api key assigned to your game
  • user_id: The user_id of the user to request items for
Response fields:
  • success:True/false depending on if the request was successful

  • error_description: Error code description string, if any

    • id: Unique integer id for the owned item instance
    • identifier: String identifier for the item
