Is there a way to use REST to find a DSK based on something more useful like the externalID?

I am looking at using the REST services in order to create and manage Organizations via an external request form so as they can be used as an adhoc collaborative space for students, one of the issues I have is that I have an existing datasource, however it looks like it wants to get the datasource ID in order to use the/learn/api/public/v1/dataSources/{dataSourceId}.


This seems a little odd to me as it would require an extra call to get all datasources in order to retrieve the ID, as this may be an unknown entity for the integration. However it would probably be a lot more useful to have that search be "externalid" as this is a more likely known entity and something that can easily be obtained without needing to run another roundtrip call.
