Web Service Response Shapes

Exchange Server 2010

The Exchange data store provides a flexible storage solution for a number of items. This flexibility enables you to store different items, such as contacts and calendar entries, in the same folder; however, it can make it difficult to manage the data that is returned from a call to an Exchange Web Service (EWS) operation.

To make it easier to manage the data that is returned by an EWS operation, EWS uses response shapes, which are predefined collections of properties that provide the most common properties for a store item. The set of properties that is returned is determined by the item type and the folder that contains the item. This means that the GetItem Operation will return one set of properties when it returns a Calendar item, and another set of properties when it returns a Contact item. The GetFolder Operation does the same, returning one set of properties for a Calendar folder, and another set of properties for a Contacts folder.

There are three predefined response shapes, as described in the following table.

Response shape

Description

ID only

The default response shape includes default properties for folders and for items.
