I have an EntityProperty and I know how to get its list of qualifiers. Now how do I figure out the possible values these can take programmatically? Here's an example to get us started:

 EntityProperty["Country", "ExternalBalance"],

{"CurrencyUnit", "Date", "PercentOfGDP", "TradeSection"

Now, say, how do I programmatically determine what "CurrencyUnit", "TradeSection", and "PercentOfGDP" can be?

  • $\begingroup$ Is that just EntityValue[ EntityProperty["Country", "ExternalBalance"], "QualifierValues"]? $\endgroup$ – M.R. Nov 18 '18 at 22:21
  • $\begingroup$ That it is. I didn't know that was a possible query. Where's that documented? (is it?) $\endgroup$ – b3m2a1 Nov 18 '18 at 22:21
  • $\begingroup$ Haha, I'm not sure it is. $\endgroup$ – M.R. Nov 18 '18 at 22:23
  • $\begingroup$ Figures. Want to toss that in as the answer? $\endgroup$ – b3m2a1 Nov 18 '18 at 22:23
  • $\begingroup$ @M.R. It is documented in the Details section of the EntityValue documentation. $\endgroup$ – Edmund Nov 18 '18 at 23:55

You can discover available qualifiers and values for a property like this:

EntityValue[ EntityProperty["Country", "ExternalBalance"], "QualifierValues"]

I did find one example of this usage - in the Scope section of EntityValue ref page:
