The Bazaarvoice Displayable Content Export (DCE) provides an HTTP interface for bulk requesting Bazaarvoice Conversations data intended for public display. To learn more, go to the DCE documentation home page.


(+ show- hide)

In this step you will request the location of a manifest file that contains a listing of all the available data sets. The response to this request will be a 302 redirect to the location of the manifest file.



GET https://[stg.]{MANIFEST_PATH}
Path tokens
Name Description

Optional subdomain indicating the request should use the non-production environment. Omit to use production. Learn more at the Reference section.


This is a file path acquired from the previous step.

The file path must be used exactly as it is. Any modification will result in the DCE returning an error.


Host: [stg.]
X-Bazaarvoice-Passkey: {DCE_PASSKEY}
X-Bazaarvoice-Signature: {SIGNATURE}
X-Bazaarvoice-Timestamp: {TIMESTAMP}

Refer to the Reference section for details on the headers and their values.

Access signature values

Replace the {SIGNATURE} token above with the following string, encrypted using the algorithm described at Creating the Access signature.


Replace the tokens above with the appropriate values as described below:

Name Description

This is a file path acquired from the previous step. This is the same value communicated in the path query string parameter.


This is the same value communicated with the X-Bazaarvoice-Passkey header.


A Unix timestamp in milliseconds. This is the same value communicated by the X-Bazaarvoice-Timestamp header.

Using seconds or any increment other than milliseconds will cause your request to fail


Response will be a HTTP 302 redirect to the location of the manifest file. The response will also include the location path value in the body of the request as a convenience for applications that cannot be configured to follow the redirect automatically. The following demonstrates a typical response:

HTTP/1.1 302 Found
Content-Type: application/json
Location: {MANIFEST_URL}


Some headers have been removed for clarity.

The next step will describe how your application can use the location path value to request a manifest file.
