Web services from /about to /webhooks

server search predicate

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


Search all member’s groups by predicate.

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

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 query

The parameters used for a predicate query are predicate and defaultfield. The predicate specified must be parseable by the Lucene classic parser. See  for more info.

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

The predicate specification might change with different Lucene versions so this service should not be used for production systems.

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-.


defaultfieldThe default field, only used with the predicate parameternostringpscontent
facetsA comma-separated list of fields to use as facetsnostrings
facetsizeThe max number of facet values to load (max 1000)nointeger10
fieldsizeMaximum number of characters allowed in a result field (max 10000)nointeger1000
groupsA comma-separated list of group names (only used when there is a project on the request)nostrings
pageThe current page to viewnointeger1
pagesizeHow many results does a page containnointeger100
predicateThe lucene predicate, takes precedence over the question parameternostring
sortfieldsA comma-separated list of fields to sort the resultsnostrings


Only the member themselves, or an administrator, can invoke this service.


The XML response is:

  <query> ... </query>
  <facets> ... </facets>
  <results>  ... </results>

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