  1. Provide disambiguation examples of Wikipedia entity names

    API: Get Events by Wikipedia Entity (/relatedevents)

    I'd like to suggest you provide some Wikipedia entity name disambiguation examples to help new developers correctly identify entities.

    For example, 'Mario' yields several Wikipedia entities and so if the developer wants Mario the video game character, they need to use:

    wikipediaid=Mario

    ...however, if Mario the American singer is required, they need to use:

    wikipediaid=Mario (American singer)

    I think letting developers know how to correctly format the wikipediaid parameter could be helpful.

    Side note: using the latter singer example actually results in really bad matching responses from the API, but that's probably due…

    • Multiple Wikipedia Entities per request

      For the Get Events by Wikipedia Entity endpoint (/relatedevents), I would like to request support of multiple entities (e.g. wikipediaid) per single request.

      Example: to find events (maybe a comparison review article) related to gaming Windows 10 on Surface Pro vs. iOS on iPad, I would like to run something like the following query:

      https://api.labs.cognitive.microsoft.com/eventknowledge/v1.0/relatedevents?wikipediaid=Video+game|Windows+10|Surface+Pro|IOS|IPad

      ...to return an intersection of related events for the queried entity terms.

      • Support subscriptions to receive new events via webhook/callback

        For all three Event Knowledge API endpoints - I'd like to be able to subscribe to a Wikipedia Entity, Event or Date and receive new events/news via a webhook/callback to my own service backend.

        • Wikidata Item Identifier API query parameter

          For API query parameters, please consider offering the Wikidata Item Identifier instead of (or, alternatively to) the Wikipedia Link to identify a Wikipedia entity.

          This makes referencing entities easier because you avoid the case-sensitive nature of Wikipedia Links and reduces errors in link composition.

          For example, the following will fail due to the 'wikipediaid' parameter value lower-case 'a' and 'i', and, the omission of the period ('.') at the end of the entity name:

          https://api.labs.cognitive.microsoft.com/eventknowledge/v1.0/relatedevents?wikipediaid=apple+inc

          The correct API request should be:
          https://api.labs.cognitive.microsoft.com/eventknowledge/v1.0/relatedevents?wikipediaid=Apple+Inc.

          Instead, you might want to offer a 'wikidataitemid' parameter that allows developers to reference the Q-prefixed identifier…
