The GetFieldSelections call enables you to see the list of available field selections for Single Selection, Multi-Selection, and Binary/Trinary fields on a primary item.

Only Single Selection, Multi-Selection, and Binary/Trinary field types can be used with the GetFieldSelections call.

You will typically use the GetItem call first to retrieve a list of FieldIdentifiers for the Single Selection, Multi-Selection, and Binary/Trinary fields on an item, and then specify those FieldIdentifiers in the GetFieldSelections call.
