Search currently returns media records.

Search will by default return 25 results, but will provide a total_media value that shows how many total results were found for your search. Use the start parameter to control pagination.

If you also include a token, your results will be constrained by the data available to the portal you have authenticated for.

Any of the field parameters (eg: title, album, catalog_id, etc.) may be passed as an array. For example: GET /v2/search?artist_name[]=dozer&artist_name[]=wienland will query for artists by the name of "dozer" or "wienland."


Adding a facets parameter to your search returns extra metadata about the distribution of results within that facet. For example:

GET /v2/search?q=trucks&facets=genre

... adds a facets object to the JSON results that looks like this:

'facets' : {
  'genre' : {
    'electronica' : 10,
    'country' : 4892832,
    'rock' : 529,
    'pop' : 130

... and as you can see, you have a lot of interest in "trucks" within the "country" genre.

You're welcome to request multiple facets counts, by comma delimiting them. For example:

GET /v2/search?q=trucks&facets=genre,duration
