Can we use decimal numbers for ratings on UGC (example: 4.5), rather than integer numbers?

Thanks in advance!

  • per my knowledge, out of the box you can only use ratings as 1 to 5 Commented Oct 25, 2016 at 10:13

Looking at the API documentation, you can get the item ratings using the following API call:


This will return an ItemStats object.

The AverageRating property of this is a double. I haven't tested this, but I'd assume, therefore, that this supports decimal values.

public double AverageRating { get; set; }

With regards to posting ratings (i.e. a user giving an item a mark out of five), then this can only be an integer:

WebServiceHelper.PostRating Method:

public static void PostRating(
    string itemUri,
    int ratingValue
