Gold and Resting Bonus Wish

100 Human Warlock
First of all, thank you so much for the API, I have been able to build an application that builds a nice website of all of my toons that can give me a great overview of them.

It would be great if on the character API that it returned gold/silver/copper integers, and Resting Bonus double

"Gold" : 45,
"Silver": 5,
"Copper" : 32,
"RestingBonus" : 133.45

Any reason these are not there?

They removed the Wealth part from statistics a long time ago when there were a lot of upset people. Very unlikely you will get a gold amount ever again.

I was one of those that actively protested against gold showing on the armory a few years back. I still feel they give too much data for public access.

On the other hand, I would not mind, in fact would approve, of an extended api that you could use to fetch said information when logged into you account.

I doubt they'll enable any features which require one to be logged into their bnet account. As soon as you make it so 3rd parties have access to your authentication protocols that's when we'll really start seeing accounts being hacked. While I keep close watch on my servers for any unauthorized access, I still have recommendation upon recommendation RE not using ANY information when registering on my site (different passwords, emails, etc).

Technically you can already see your gold count when logged into as it is displayed on the remote auction house feature.

That's true but you are able to see gold for characters on your own account only, and that requires you to be authenticated (i.e. know the email and password for the account and have the authenticator code if an authenticator is attached to the account).

So far, the community platform api doesn't support account authentication. The character api allows you to get information for any character on any account.
