14.3.2 API Search

This can be run in the same ways as the API Lookup. This search provides the same set of results as a web or command line query will provide. All the query flags can be used in the search. An example, from the command line:

curl ‘http://rest.db.ripe.net/search?source=ripe&query-string=dw-ripe&flags=no-filtering&flags=no-referenced'

As with the lookup, any spaces in the command must be encoded. The response will be returned in XML format by default. Alternatively, JSON can be returned (see the GitHub documentation for more information).

This documentation is in draft status.
