Retrieve a subcommunity 

To retrieve a subcommunity entry, use the edit link for the subcommunity entry which can be found in the My Communities feed.

You can use this operation to obtain subcommunity entry information that you want to preserve prior to performing an update. See Update subcommunities for more information. This method returns the Atom entry of a single subcommunity as opposed to a feed of the community. If you want to retrieve a feed, see Getting the Subcommunities feed.

See Authenticating requests for information about how to authenticate the request.
