botname yes Your bot's SL login.

Return value

listinventory returns the contents of folders in the bots inventory.

Regular output (no "extended=1")

The following data is returned:

  • Inventory UUID (the main ID of the inventory item)
  • Item type (object, notecard, clothing etc)
  • Clothing type (if applicable)
  • Asset UUID (when available)
  • Flags
  • Inventory item name

The parts are joined using ";" (excluding Inventory item name which ends with the line end). See the examples below for more info.

Extended output (with "extended=1")

The following data is returned:

  • Inventory UUID (the main ID of the inventory item)
  • Item type (object, notecard, clothing etc)
  • Clothing type (if applicable)
  • Asset UUID (when available)
  • Flags
  • Inventory item name (url-escaped)
  • Current owner's permissions ('mod', 'copy', 'trans' joined by '+')
  • Next owner's permissions ('mod', 'copy', 'trans' joined by '+')

All parts are joined using ";". See the examples below for more info.


Due to technical reasons the empty folder returned when non-existing UUID is being used. Contact SmartBots support if this is critical for your app.

Inventory-ID vs Asset-ID

There's a huge difference between "inventory ID" and "asset ID":

  • "Inventory ID" is an id of the object in avatar's personal inventory.
  • "Asset ID" is a global id of the item within SL database ("asset server").

Therefore, you may have two identical textures in the bots inventory: they will have a different Inventory-ID but the same Asset-ID (because they point to the same image on the SL server).

So, the rules are:

  • When you rez an item from inventory, you need to pick up an object by Inventory-ID. You rez specific object.
  • When the script sets a texture to a face, it uses Asset-ID (because scripts have no access to your inventory! It just tells SL to fetch a specific image from the global database)


The only supported flag is WORN - it means that this item is being worn by the bot.

Limitations: currently only clothing items, textures and body parts are supported. Attached objects are not displayed.


The root folder of the inventory usually looks like this:
