API: Resolving "external" entities

ari_sari_s Member Posts: 7
Is it possible to resolve which external entity (origin, x-axis, etc.) is being referenced by a constraint when we do a "get feature list" call?
For example, here is the section of the returned JSON that indicates the external entity (the origin in this case) referenced by a particular coincident constraint:
                                    "type": 148,
                                    "typeName": "BTMParameterQueryList",
                                    "message": {
                                        "queries": [
                                                "type": 138,
                                                "typeName": "BTMIndividualQuery",
                                                "message": {
                                                    "geometryIds": [],
                                                    "hasUserCode": false,
                                                    "nodeId": "MqV5dh3AIMV6hPynr"
                                        "parameterId": "externalFirst",
                                        "hasUserCode": false,
                                        "nodeId": "Ml8YqJ9PYw+lqfm8p"
It appears that the necessary information to resolve the query and determine which external entity is involved is not present. Is there any way to resolve this?
