Should there be more options for
item_type in the "inbox" routes (they return inbox_item)?
Shouldn't they return
edit suggested like the site's global inbox does? As shown in this screenshot:
Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. It only takes a minute to sign up.Sign up to join this community
one of comment, chat_message, new_answer, careers_message, careers_invitations, meta_question, post_notice, or moderator_message
new_answer is returned whenever a new answer is posted to one of the authenticated user's questions.
edit_suggested is returned as part of the
notification object, which also returns:
accounts_associated moderator_message badge_earned new_privilege bounty_expired post_migrated bounty_expires_in_one_day profile_activity bounty_expires_in_three_days registration_reminder bounty_grace_period_started reputation_bonus edit_suggested substantive_edit generic
So, you have to call both one of the
/inbox routes and one of the
/notifications routes to get the same information that's in the Stack Exchange "inbox". But you normally want to do that anyway.
