Web service API

How to use PageSeeder's Web service API

project search

/members/{member}/projects/{group}/search [GET]



Search multiple groups by question.

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. All the groups under the project on the request that the member has access to will be searched. The groups parameter can be used to narrow the groups selected. It must be a comma separated list of group names.


Name Description Required Type Default value
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
filters A comma-separated list of field:term pairs to use as filters no strings
flexiblefacets A comma-separated list of fields to use as flexible facets no strings
groups A comma-separated list of group names (only used when there is a project on the request) no strings
page The current page to view no integer 1
pagesize How many results does a page contain no integer 100
question The question to search for no string
questionfields A comma-separated list of fields to search the question in no strings pstitle,pscontent
ranges A comma-separated list of range searches no strings
searchgroups If 'all' then search all groups under the project (administrators only) no enum user
sortfields A comma-separated list of fields to sort the results no strings
suggestsize The max number of suggestions to load (only for question query) no integer 20


Undocumented permissions requirements.


The XML response is:

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

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