We are using search API of confluence cloud(https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/confluence/advanced-searching-using-cql/).
We are performing text searches with the above API.
Example of our query is below:
https://mydomain/wiki/rest/api/search?limit=2&start=1&cql=type=page and space='TS' and title='test'
We have already have 7 records matching when we use only limit=10, one first call limit=2&start=0, I am getting 2 records but when I use limit=2&start=1 or limit=2&start=2 or 'start' more than 0, I am getting empty array in results of the API. Ideally we should get the paginated records in the results of the API, but from API we are not getting proper response.
Does Anybody faced the similar issue or had a solution for the above problem?
EDIT: sorry, I'm using Confluence SERVER search API. I'll leave this post here in case other server devs end up here. Pagination of the search API is hard to use and broken in some cases:
I'm using the search REST API and the "next" link in the results from my first call doesn't work. It returns HTTP 400 Bad Request, saying that the "CQL query parameter is required but was empty".
I think it is odd that the search API (first request, no pagination params specified) works if an "=" that is contained in the value of the cql param is not URL encoded (like /rest/api/content/search?cql=macro=multiexcerpt).
It also works if the "=" IS URL encoded (like /rest/api/content/search?cql=macro%3Dmultiexcerpt) which I would expect. Why would the API allow unencoded cql parameter values? That is so odd and feels like it is never going to work.
This works for me (SERVER API). I worked around any oddness in the API for parsing the cql parameter value by always encoding it and specifying it separate from the parameters for pagination:
curl --user username:password -G "https://my.domain.net/rest/api/content/search" --data-urlencode "cql=macro=multiexcerpt"
curl --user username:password -G "https://my.domain.net/rest/api/content/search?start=25&limit=25" --data-urlencode "cql=macro=multiexcerpt"
We're running into a similar issue where https://our-subdomain.atlassian.net/wiki/rest/api/search?cql=label=ourlabel&limit=10&start=10&expand=content.metadata.labels,content.history.lastUpdated
returns the same value regardless of what start is set to. We have 72 results listed, but we can't access them for some reason by changing start.
