Trying to tell if an item is intended for tanks or healers or ranged, melee or spell casters or for some combination...

Once you have gone past the basics, eg main stats, then you have to decipher the free form text description. And this is hard because it is free form.

Or you can have a "database" of items and simply match the item's name against a required role. But I do not know if such a database exists, I will have to record items manually...

But I have just remembered when you had to roll for loot, the game knows what items are intended for, when you choose "loot specialisation" of course. How does the game do it, is there an internal database, and is there an API for this?
