Search API for bubble


#1

HI,

I am a newbie for bubble. I am trying to create an API endpoint that would return a list of offers based on a search criteria. I have the following questions

  1. How to create a search API . I only saw option for create , modify , delete and copy lists of things. SHould I use the “copy list of things” ? If I use this option , looks like there is a limit on the number of items returned. Looks like it will get capped at 100 items. Can you please share an example of how can I do this.

I am trying to call this api from Dropbox.

Thank you for your time

Can do it this way, although there isn’t much control over the format or which fields are returned. Using privacy rules might help to restrict which fields.

Another option is the Data API https://bubble.is/reference#API.get_api
