Entity object type

The Entity object type is an abstract base type for objects which are able to own or contain content in TypePad. It has the following derived types:

  • Application: A third-party application which can use the TypePad JSON API.
  • Group: A social container that represents a community site.
  • User: A TypePad user.


The Entity object type has the following properties:

id (string)
A URI that serves as a globally unique identifier for the object.
urlId (string)
A string containing the canonical identifier that can be used to identify this object in URLs. This can be used to recognise where the same user is returned in response to different requests, and as a mapping key for an application's local data store.
