REST API Search query documentation?

This question has suggested answer(s)

The REST API has a set of search endpoints, but no documentation on what goes in the Filter and Query fields:

Query string Query is not required but you should use either Query or Filters otherwise you'll get all documents in the search index. Optional
Filters string Filters is not required but you should use either Query or Filters otherwise you'll get all documents in the search index. Optional

Where can I find documentation and/or examples of using this?

Thanks, Clyde

  • Here are some examples of using those fields: telligent.com/.../6629.example-search-queries.aspx

  • I get a permission denied error when I try access that link.

  • Same here... looks like the article is in a private group/community.

  • One way I figured out what to pass was by using the out of the box search widget, and on one of the widget files (I don't recall which one), they construct the filters.

    Simply, before they pass it into the search object, print it to the screen to see what was constructed based on your facets selected...

    Not much use to me since I have no access to the platform other than through the REST API. All I want is some documentation - not much to ask I don't think.

  • Have you read this one?

  • Hi clydeps,

    You should be able to view that article here in a public wiki:
