Location Management: Get List

Get a list of locations to see the details of that list and the locations within it.

The Get List API allows you to view an existing list created using our Create List endpoint. 

Base URL




Note: A REST endpoint with a JSON payload is the only call style supported.

Request parameters

Each request to the web service requires a number of parameters, all of which are listed below. All requests require a key which can be generated in your account.

Note: where potentially sensitive data is used in these parameters, remember to make the request as secure as possible (see the API Security page for more information).

* = required field

Name Type Example values Description
Key* String AA11-AA11-AA11-AA11 The Loqate key used to authenticate with the service.
listID* String c28231fe-736b-4b50-b57b-9686afe221c2 Unique GuID for a given list.

When sending a request, if a listID is provided then the response will contain all of the points within that list. If no ListID is provided, the response will contain a list of the location lists associated with your account.
