Help with loot list

90 Human Death Knight
I have no experience with coding or programming language but I was told to figure out how to use the blizzard api and track loot...I think they want me to make a spread sheet or something on who got loot from bosses and when and that will update itself. I haven't been told what exactly they want me to do but this is what I was told (see quote) The most I've gotten is the JSON structure.

"figure out how to use the blizzard api there has to be a way to track loot using the blizzard api
if we could figure that out then we could populate our databases automatically"

I offered to make a loot list outside of the game and just upload it as a document but this is the task I was given.

when you pull an item from the api you get info like this

"itemSource": {
"sourceId": 64606,
"sourceType": "VENDOR"

courceid is the npc or boss that the loot comes from in this case its a token reward i hope this helps a little

What do you do with the sourceId? Is there an API for that?
