If you can't find a link, can you provide a data source? Otherwise how can we check if these codes are correct? --99of9 (talk) 07:39, 7 September 2017 (UTC)

If you see the source of the item you can see that there is no direct link to f3860700-0200-11db-89ca-0019b92a3933 but Microsoft Groove URI (line 740) and internal website use the code. --★ → Airon 90 17:13, 7 September 2017 (UTC)
@Airon90: I've investigated this a bit and found that a formatter URL is possible here. For example: [1] eventually resolves to the artist page too, and many strings would work in place of "DUMMY" in that URL. Which dummy string should we put in? Have we had this situation with other formatter URLs? What did we do there? --99of9 (talk) 02:00, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
@99of9: this comes up often, we usually use '_' as the dummy string. ArthurPSmith (talk) 19:42, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
  Support Ok thanks, I've added that to the proposal. --99of9 (talk) 01:54, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

Motivation

We have many properties about music streaming services and stores, like Spotify track ID (P2207), Deezer album ID (P2723) or Apple Music album ID (P2281). I just discovered LinkFire and I think that Wikidata can compete for offering an up-to-date CC-0-licensed database of external IDs of music services and stores. By now I just added some of the most famous (Google Play Music (Q3238917), Tidal (Q19711013) and Microsoft (Q2283)). AFAIK there isn't a simple way to link to Microsoft Store. -- ★ → Airon 90 16:59, 4 November 2016 (UTC)

Discussion
  •   Comment Hmm, is it feasible in the long run to create properties for every supported category on every service? I would prefer a generic property where the service can be specified as a required qualifier. Of course there is the question about formatter urls, right now I don't think there is support for having them be different for different qualifiers? To me adding that support in the UI and then removing all of these for one (either just one, or one for artists, one for albums and so on) and then differentiating them using a qualifier pointing to an item would be better. That would support all services with much fewer properties. I don't oppose adding these as this is the way we have to add them right now and a migration could easily be made by a bot later on. But I would at least like to discuss a generic solution first. --Pajn (talk) 20:47, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
  •   Support. Given that no discussion of a generic solution has apparently happened yet, it seems pointless to delay this further even if it is only used for the interim. Thryduulf (talk) 16:35, 22 April 2017 (UTC)

  • This property currently doesn't have a formatter url. Do you want a creation without one? ChristianKl (talk) 20:11, 7 November 2017 (UTC)
