The relevant excerpt looks like this (from a server details request):

      "image": {
            "id": "70a599e0-31e7-49b7-b260-868f441e862b",
            "links": [
                    "rel": "bookmark"

I think it does need to be the full URL. If not we can just drop the links
property as the id is supplied separately anyway.
