Having difficulties with Search API

Post by langlotz » Wed Mar 21, 2018 8:25 am

Dear all

I'm trying to run an example for "Published Data Keywords Search with Variable Constituents" using the Developper's Area's OPS v3.2 API. I understand that one of the valid consituents would be "biblio", so I tried:

GET /3.2/rest-services/published-data/biblio/search?q=ti%3Dplastic HTTP/1.1

However, this results in a 404 Not Found error - an so do any other values for "{constituents}". Trying the same query for "Published Data Keywords Search without Consituents" works perfectly:

GET /3.2/rest-services/published-data/search?q=ti%3Dplastic HTTP/1.1

finds >10,000 results (<ops:biblio-search total-result-count="10000">).

What am I missing...?

There seems to be an issue with API console and we have already informed our developers.
