Null values in the Listing RID field

RETS Feed - Northern Kentucky Association of REALTORS

We are using the Listing RID field to identify photos for listings. The field, however, is null for all listings. Is there another field that should be referenced to reference and identify photos?

You can use L_PictureCount and L_Last_Photo_updt to identify if a listing has images.

You can also do a search against the Media resource to get the image URLs for listings.

What field is used as the actual identifier for the listing? As we have noted, the Listing RID field is null, and we had been using that to identify the listing, previously.

L_ListingID field is the value you use to request images. In RETS, it is the field identified as the KeyField for the resource in METADATA-RESOURCE. That would be the same value to use for images.
