Download AH data.

I was wondering how I would go about downloading the AH data? I can tell from this post that it is possible ( ) which links to which is exactly what i want with the issue of being the wrong server. what would I need to do to be able to get it for other servers?

Edit: I think i found it. For anybody looking in the future tells how. For instance my server would be which then yields a second url to the actual data.

Yep, you found the answer already, but just to clarify some common questions we get:

  • The request to actually download the data does not count towards your request limit (whether you have a key or not)
  • The auction data file only updates every few hours, make sure to use the last modified field and don't waste requests checking more often than every couple of hours.
  • The data is a snapshot of current auctions on the server. An example of the data can be found in the docs

Back again with another question. Not quite sure where to put it seeing as this forum seem to be for the web api and not the ingame api but I can't find any place better.

Are there any addons that can purchase an auction by auction id from the list of auctions? I understand that there has to be a button click for each auction purchased which is fine.

And if there are no addons is it even possible to write such an addon? Getting a list of ID's into the game should not bee too hard seeing as wow does allow copy and paste into the game.

The auction ID given by the web API has no correlation to any auction data available in-game, so you can't really purchase auctions based on it.

Ok. that makes this a bit harder. (Not impossible but not near as easy. Now I have to go off a combo of item name and price.)
