Web service API

How to use PageSeeder's Web service API

group search predicate

/groups/{group}/search/predicate [GET]



Search a single group by predicate.


This class is not part of the public API, and may be subject to change!

The parameters used for a predicate query are predicate and defaultfield. The predicate specified must be parseable by the Lucene classic parser. See http://lucene.apache.org/core/5_2_1/queryparser/org/apache/lucene/queryparser/classic/package-summary.html  for more info.

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


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


Name Description Required Type Default value
defaultfield The default field, only used with the predicate parameter no string pscontent
facets A comma-separated list of fields to use as facets no strings
facetsize The max number of facet values to load (max 1000) no integer 10
page The current page to view no integer 1
pagesize How many results does a page contain no integer 100
predicate The lucene predicate, takes precedence over the question parameter no string
sortfields A comma-separated list of fields to sort the results no strings


Undocumented permissions requirements.


The XML response is:

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

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