Detailed Description

Given a Request CE Space and Datastore Form, searches for submissions with a given query. The query, index, and limit parameters are used to build the full query that will be passed to the datastore submissions endpoint of the Request CE API (all requests will also add ?include=values,form,details to the query). Before being sent to the Request CE instance, the query is escaped by running the URI.escape() command on the inputted query string. After all the submissions that match the query have been returned, the handler formats it into one of three possible output formats: a JSON string, an XML string, or an XML list of submission ids.

If ID List is selected as the Return Type, the output looks like:


Note: The limit by default for submissions in 25, so if you want to retrieve more submissions than that add a limit=n (where n is an integer representing the new limit) to the query string
