server search facets

/members/{member}/search/facets [GET]


Get search facets for all member’s groups

This service does the same as the group search but collates the results from multiple groups.

For details see Service: /groups/{group}/search [GET].

The indexes

The current implementation of PageSeeder produces one Lucene index per group.

This service searches all the member’s groups. To narrow the target groups, use the groups parameter with a comma-separated list of group names.

The service returns an error if any of the following fields are in the parameters because they could be defined differently in different project catalogs: psproperty-*, psmetadata-*, psinline-, psblock-.
