Hi guys how are you, I was wondering if someone could offer advice on common practises, one question I have is regarding WebIDs. As we need web IDs to access data, is it right to think that the user would know these in advance, for instance is it really required to make many calls to access a certain piece of data or could we assume that the user already has access to webIDs in order to create a single API query, IE it should be common that the user already knows the URL to the specific data they want to retrieve?

 

I am trying to understand the ways that users currently use the WebAPI, it seems that if the above is not possible it could lead to situation where there could be any number of combinations of calls to retrieve a single piece of data.
