#8: When do I use the /entities endpoint?

Category: API · Last updated: · Permalink

Calling the /entities/XXXX endpoint (for an entity with the ID XXXX) will retrieve the full details about that entity from the database. The full record will include adjacent entities, such as company owners and subsidiaries, family members and associates for PEPs, and detailed records for addresses and identification documents linked to entities. This endpoint can be used to perform incremental traversal of the OpenSanctions entity graph.

Read about the entity data model and consult the data dictionary to see all entity types, how they can reference each other and their other properties.
