API Authentication

API can be tested using a logged in browser session. To authenticate external services/scripts, you will need to activate the API_TOKEN for your account and set it in the HTTP header for requests made to the API:

  • X-auth-token="YOUR-API-TOKEN"
where YOUR-API-TOKEN is the value of your API TOKEN. You are not logged in. You need to log in to view/manage your API TOKEN.

Making API search queries

/api/resource?q={"filters":[...], "limit":..., "offset":..., "order_by":[...], "group_by":[...], "single":...}&results_per_page=...&page=...

Pagination

Responses to GET requests are paginated by default, with at most ten objects per page. To request a specific page, add a page=N query parameter to the request URL, where N is a positive integer (the first page is page one). If no page query parameter is specified, the first page will be returned.

In order to specify the number of results per page, add the query parameter results_per_page=N where N is a positive integer. If results_per_page is greater than the maximum number of results per page as configured by the server, then the query parameter will be ignored.

In addition to the "objects" list, the response JSON object will have a "page" key with the current page number, a "num_pages" key with total number of pages into which the set of matching instances is divided, and a "num_results" key with total number of instances which match the requested search.

Query format:

The query parameter q must be a JSON string. It can have the following mappings, all of which are optional:

filters

A list of <filterobjects> of one of the following forms:

{"name": <fieldname>, "op": <operatorname>, "val": <argument>}

Where <operatorname> is one of the strings described below, <fieldname> is the name of the field of the model to which to apply the operator, <argument> is a value to be used as the second argument to the given operator.

{"name": <fieldname>, "op": <operatorname>, "field": <fieldname>}

Where the first <fieldname> and <operatorname> are as above and the second <fieldname> is the field of the model that should be used as the second argument to the operator.

The first <fieldname> may specify a field on a related model, if it is a string of the form <relationname>__<fieldname>. Alternatively if the field name is the name of a relation and the operator is "has" or "any", the "val" argument can be a dictionary with the arguments representing another, nested filter to be applied as the argument for "has" or "any".

The <operatorname> strings recognized by the API incude:

  • ==, eq, equals, equals_to
  • !=, neq, does_not_equal, not_equal_to
  • >, gt, <, lt
  • >=, ge, gte, geq, <=, le, lte, leq
  • in, not_in
  • is_null, is_not_null
  • like
  • has
  • any

TIP: use the has and any operators to search for instances by fields on related instances. In general, use the any operator if the relation is a list of objects and use the has operator if the relation is a single object.

Filters can also exclude results, for example:

{"not": <filterobject>}

Filter objects can also be arbitrary Boolean formulas, for example:

{"or": [<filterobject>, {"and": [<filterobject>, ...]}, ...]}

The returned list of matching instances will include only those instances that satisfy all of the given filters.

If a filter is poorly formatted (for example, op is set to '==' but val is not set), the server responds with 400 Bad Request.

limit
A positive integer which specifies the maximum number of objects to return.
offset
A positive integer which specifies the offset into the result set of the returned list of instances.
order_by

A list of objects of the form:

{"field": <fieldname>, "direction": <directionname>}

where <fieldname> is a string corresponding to the name of a field of the requested model and <directionname> is either "asc" for ascending order or "desc" for descending order.

<fieldname> may alternately specify a field on a related model, if it is a string of the form <relationname>__<fieldname>.

group_by

A list of objects of the form:

{"field": <fieldname>}

where <fieldname> is a string corresponding to the name of a field of the requested model.

<fieldname> may alternately specify a field on a related model, if it is a string of the form <relationname>__<fieldname>.

single
A Boolean representing whether a single result is expected as a result of the search. If this is true and either no results or multiple results meet the criteria of the search, the server responds with an error message.
