Get Survey

Get details of a survey.

Changes from v1.0

  • The ‘displayName’ property is now called ‘name’.
  • The ‘questionnaireTitle’ property is now called ‘title’.
  • An ‘ownerId’ property has been added. This gives the owner’s id (GUID)
  • An ‘ownerName’ property has been added. This is the owner’s user name.
  • A ‘path’ property has been added. This is the path up to the survey as an array. E.g. A survey called ‘Survey001’ in folder ‘New Surveys’ in the user’s account will show as “Your work”, New Surveys” and the name will be ‘Survey001’.
  • The interviewingState property has a different set of possible values. In v1 they were: “NotStarted”, “Live”, “Paused” and “Stopped”. In v2 they are: “NotStarted”, “Started”, “Paused”, “Stopped”, “TooManyRespondents” and “Unknown”.
