In this video, Nate discusses how to model search and query options for collections in a REST API.
- [Instructor] The syntax for searching a collection will be similar to the sort syntax. The client will send a query parameter called search with a search expression as the parameter value. The search expression consists of a field, an operator, and a value separated by spaces. Different fields can support different operators. For example, a numeric field could support less than and greater than operators. Multiple search parameters can be used to create an and query over multiple fields. For the Landon Hotel API, modeling queries that contain a logical or won't be necessary.
However, the approach we'll use is extensible and could be modified to support or queries in your API. All right, let's get started.
