How do I view followers of a Gather Topic or Post?

    Hi Gyaltsen –

    This can be done via these two API endpoints:

    List Post Subscriptions: Lists the subscriptions to a given post.
    List Topic Subscriptions similarly lists the subscriptions to a given topic.

    Similarly, for votes you'd use List Votes

    These will give you a list of Zendesk user IDs. To turn those into names, you'll need to use the Show Users API endpoint:
    Show User

    If you're not experienced at writing API scripts, Postman is a tool that can make the task somewhat easier: How do I set up Postman to make API requests to my Zendesk account?

    Hope this helps!

    Hi guys, I'm having some trouble with this.

    I've used the API calls for a number of things recently. I'm using postman and have had no issues apart from trying to execute the call to:

    GET /api/v2/community/topics/{topic_id}/subscriptions

    Which I get

    "error": "Couldn't authenticate you"

    Has anyone else got this on this particular call?

    Hi Danny,

    You must be a verified user to make API requests. You can authenticate API requests using basic authentication with your email address and password, with your email address and an API token, or with an OAuth access token. More information can be found here: How can I authenticate API requests?

    When will this data be exposed and queryable in Explore?
