Yeah, the API documentation is not great for search...I need to make some more examples, since search  can be really complicated. 

Sorry to say this, but the best bet is to fire up Aspace ( ideally in dev mode, so you can isolate the backend log ), interact with teh frontend for the searches your wanting to do, and watch the backend log for what's coming into the backend.

But, for what you're wanting to do, try : 

  curl -H "X-ArchivesSpace-Session $SESSION" "http://localhost:8089/repositories/2/search?q=Test&page=1&simple_filter%5B%5D=resource_type_enum_s%3Apublications&facet%5B%5D=primary_type&facet%5B%5D=creators&facet%5B%5D=subjects"

Or something like that... it needs to have "simple_filter[]=publish:true AND suppressed:false" but urlencoded...

Does that help?

I am working on integrating a website with ArchivesSpace 1.4.2 content.  The REST API docs are helpful but they are light on details if you want to do search with filters and facets. Does anyone have a good set of examples they can point me to?

For the public search and browse in the website I want to make sure that I only serve contents that have publish equal to true and suppressed equal to false.

I had assumed I should be able to do something like

     curl -H "X-ArchivesSpace-Session $SESSION" http://localhost:8089/repositories/2/search?q=Test&page=1&simple_filter=publish:true,suppress:false

But that yields an error message of

     {"error":{"simple_filter":["Wanted type [String] but got 'publish:true,suppress:false'"]}}

The docs I am currently look at are

Thank you very much,
