Practice Exercise: Get Search Items

This is the first in a series of practice exercises to help you become familiar with the Cherwell® REST API Discovery Tool. In this exercise, you will call a simple operation with a single, boolean parameter.

  1. Log into the REST API Discovery Tool. See Opening the REST API Discovery Tool.
  2. Click the Searches heading to expand the list of operations.
  3. Click /api/V1/getsearchitems to expand the operation's details.
  4. Under parameters, select true for the links parameter.
  5. Click Try it out!
    If the response data does not appear, ensure that the authentication button has been switched to On.
  6. Optional: Try calling the operation again using false for the links parameter to see the difference in response data.
