Hi there! Having some difficulty with the web API.
Sending a request to get external IDs, but it's only giving me back Deezer. Ideally, I am looking for external IDs for Youtube, iTunes, Spotify (as well as Deezer). I believe these should all be available for this song (Bohemian Rapsody by Queen). My request is as follows;


Is there anything you can do to fix it?


Hi Joey,

You will need to create a license with the third party company to be authorized to access that external ID.
Hope this answers your question. Do let us know if you have further qustions.


Hi Wai-Yu,

How can we do that? We have applied for an 'Accelerator Plan'. We want to access Spotify and Rdio external ID's.

Hi Wai-Yu,

Could you give more details about it? I'm actually in the same position. I'm doing some experiments on using the Gracenote API for one of the companies I'm currently working with and I just get the Deezer ID using the LINK option in the SELECT EXTENDED query.  

What I would like to know is what other sources (if any) would be available with a different license. I'm with the community license at the moment.

Hi Stefano,
At this point, we are only making Deezer ID available through the Developer Program (both Community and Accelerator plan).
We do have other external IDs that can help you connect to iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody and more. Please contact Sales ( if you like to find out more about how to get access to those data.
