Web service API

How to use PageSeeder's Web service API

project search facets

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



Get search facets for multiple groups.

This service does the same as the group search but the search is not performed and only the facets for the search are returned.

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.


Only groups that use the same template as the project will be searched because they use the same index catalog.
