0.0.19 modifies Entity listing behaviour. It is now possible to search for Entities by name. The manner in which Amatino conveys listed Entities changed, and this new manner will be rolled out across all Amatino objects in time.
0.0.18 code is not backwards compatible with API 0.0.19 with respect to Entity listing.
New Entity Listing Model
Prior to 0.0.19, a request to
/entities/list would return a package of the form:
… Wherein the
Entity objects were returned under the
"entities" key. In 0.0.19, Entities are now returned as a list of Entity objects. There is no encapsulating package providing list metadata.
Entity object itself is aware of its own disposition with respect to a listing query. Inside the
Entity object is a new keyed value,
The meanings of the four integers inside the Disposition are:
Limit: The maximum number of objects returned in response to the request.
Offset: The sequence number at which the returned objects start.
Count: The total number of objects having attributes that satisfy the request. For example, if you request all Entities whose name starts with
"Great", with a limit of 10 and offset 0, and there are 12 entities with such names, you will receive a
"count" value of 12 and a
"limit" value of 10.
Sequence: The unique position of this object within all possibly returned objects satisfying the request conditions.
In future, this model will be adopted by all Amatino objects that may be listed. That is, they will all include a
Searching by Name
/entities path now accepts a new URL parameter:
name. The value for
name can be any string value between 3 and 64 characters long. It is optional.
Amatino will search for all Entities with a case-insensitive name that contains the specified string. For example,
"name=orporation" will return Entities with name
"Excellent Corporation" and
"PROFITABLE CORPORATION LTD".
You can omit the
name key entirely.
