Template Parameters

Gg585125.note(en-us,MSDN.10).gifNote:
Parameter names and values are not case-sensitive except for the queryKey parameter value.

Parameter Description Values

accessId

Required. A unique ID for the data source.

A string containing and ID that is part of the URL structure that identifies the data source.

Example: 20181f26d9e94c81acdf9496133d4f23

dataSourceName

Required The name of the data source that you want to search.

A string containing the data source name.

Example: FourthCoffeeSample

entityTypeName

Required The entity type to search for.

The entity type of the data source.

Example: FourthCoffeeStores

spatialFilter

Required The area you want to search. You can specify this area in three ways:

  • A latitude and longitude representing a point and a distance in kilometers to search from that point.

  • A set of latitude and longitude pairs that create an area called a bounding box.

  • A geographical area defined by one of the geography types described in

    Geography Types.

To define an area using a point and distance in kilometers, use the following syntax:

spatialFilter=nearby(latitude, longitude, distance)

where latitude and longitude represent a point on the Earth and the distance represents the maximum distance to search from that route. The distance must be between 0.15 and 400 kilometers. The distance unit of miles is not supported.

Example: spatialFilter=nearby(47.6,-122.3,50.0)

To define an area using a bounding box, use the following syntax:

spatialFilter=bbox(South Latitude, West Longitude, North Latitude, East Longitude)

where the latitude and longitude values define an area on the earth.

Example: spatialFilter=bbox(47.5,-122.4,47.7,-122.2)

To define an area using a geography description, use the following syntax:

spatialFilter=intersects('geography description')

The geography description can have a maximum of 200 points that must be within and area described by 10 degrees of latitude and 10 degrees of longitude.

Example: spatialFilter=intersects('POLYGON ((-112 42,-112 41,-123 41,-123 42,-112 42))')

filterString

Required. The search condition based on property values.

A conditional expression that uses property values. An entity is returned when the expression is true for that entity’s values. This parameter is an OData query option. Currently, the Query API only supports logical operators.

Example: $filter=CountryRegion Eq 'Washington' and Employees Ge 10

queryOptions

Optional. Options for this query. For more information about query options, see Query Options.

A set of query values. Each query value is specified as an individual URL parameter. The following example shows how to set both the $format and the $orderby query options in the URL.

&$format=json&$orderby=ZipCode

Example: $select=HoursOfOperation,IsWiFiHotSpot

If the $orderby option is not specified as part of the request, the results will be sorted by the property that represents the entity ID in ascending order. You can specify up to three (3) properties for the $orderby option. You cannot use the latitude or longitude properties to sort results.

You cannot use the latitude or longitude properties to filter results by using the $filter query option.

jsonp

Optional. Name of JSON callback function that is called when the response to the request is received. The JSON object provided in the response is passed to the callback function.

A string that contains the name of the callback function.

Example: jsonp=MyCallbackFunction

isStaging

Optional. Specifies to query the staged version of the data source instead of the published version.

A Boolean value.

  • 0 or false[default]

  • 1 or true

Example: isStaging=1

jsonso

Optional. The state object to pass to the JSON callback function. You can use a state object to match a response with a specific call. This value is provided as the second parameter to the callback function provided in the JSONP parameter.

Any valid JavaScript string.

Example: jsonso=abc3144sd

queryKey

Required. The Bing Maps Key to use to access the data source.

The Bing Maps Keys that you can use for a data source are specified when the data source is created. For example, there may be a single query key you must use to query the data source or you may be able to use any Bing Maps Key. For more information about specifying query keys when a data source is created, see Create a Load Data Source Job and Input Entity Data.

Example: key=abc123def456ghi789abc123def456ghi789

Response

This URL supports the following response formats.

If the $orderby query option is not specified when you query for multiple entity IDs, the results will be sorted by the property that is used for the entity ID. Results are returned in ascending order.

  • Atom (application/atom + xml) [default]

  • JSON (application/json)

When the output format is set to Atom, the response contains a collection of Atom Entries is returned as part of an Atom feed. For more information about these Atom response formats, see OData AtomPub Format and the Atom examples in the Examples section.

When the output format is JSON, the response format for both types of requests is a collection of JSON Entries in a “results” container. For more information about the JSON response format, see OData: JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) Format and the JSON examples in the Examples section.

Examples

EXAMPLE: Get entities that meet specified filter conditions and order the results.

This example queries for coffee shops in the city of Clearwater and returns information about whether they are WiFi hotspots. The entries are sorted in descending order so that shops that are WiFi hotspots are listed first.
