Question

Answer

What is the anatomy of a Results API URL?

A Results API URL specifies what result data is retrieved from the Results API using the OData protocol. It has three parts: a root, a resource path, and a query. Only the root is needed to access the Results API, but the resource path and query options can help you to filter for the exact data in which you are interested. For more information about what each part of a Results API URL does, please refer to the following Knowledge Base article:

The Results API OData feeds are designed to return specific datum and granular subsets of data. When querying multiple data in a feed, querying multiple feeds simultaneously, or querying against the content in a variable that is not a key field for the feed, the Results API may timeout. Users are encouraged to design queries to use specific key values.
