Data Types

Values returned by the API can be strings in double quotes, numbers, objects, arrays, true or false, or null. Most programming languages have tools to parse this data.

Object Identifiers

All object IDs are 24 byte hexadecimal strings that are created by our MongoDB servers and represent a ObjectId.


Dates (ie. time stamps) use UTC time and are formatted as ISO 8601 strings (without milliseconds).

Example: 2015-04-16T09:14:57Z
