Filtering and Sorting


Many Live Data API calls support filtering to limit the results returned. Any call that supports filtering will have it documented, but the general approach to filtering is using querystring parameters in the GET call. Each filter parameter is ANDed together.

String filters

When filtering on a string, the user-provided value is as a free-text search, essentially looking for any value that contains that string. There is no method today for performing an exact match, except to take the results and perform client-side filtering.

Date filters

All dates in the Live Data API are based on UTC time. Localization can be handled by clients.


Some calls support sorting the results. Generally these will take a querystring parameter called sortBy which is set to the name of the field to sort on, prefixed with + to sort ascending and - to sort descending.
