API Filters

This section describes how to include filters with your API queries. Examples usages are:

  • Returning all Ad Units with a name that contains "footer"

  • Returning all Line Items that started delivering after 2021/01/01

  • Returning all Line Items in a RUNNING or ENDED state

Example Queries

This introduces the filtering capabilities of the API with some concrete examples. A full description of all the available parameters is provided in the next section.

This makes use of the filterBy and filterByLike query parameters.

https://api.adnuntius.com/api/v1/adunits?auth_token=TOKEN&filterBy=name&filterByLike=footer

Return all Line Items that started delivering after 2021/01/01

This makes use of the where query parameter.

https://api.adnuntius.com/api/v1/lineitems?auth_token=TOKEN&where=startedRunningDate>2021-01-01

Conditions can be added to the where clause by using the ; separator character. So if we wanted to search for Line Items that started delivering between 2021-01-01 and 2021-06-01 we could use:

https://api.adnuntius.com/api/v1/lineitems?auth_token=TOKEN&where=startedRunningDate>2021-01-01;startedRunningDate<2021-06-01

Return all Line Items in a RUNNING or ENDED state

This also makes use of the where query parameter, and introduces the in operator.

https://api.adnuntius.com/api/v1/lineitems?auth_token=TOKEN&where=executionState+in+RUNNING,ENDED

Likewise, you can also use a not in operator:

https://api.adnuntius.com/api/v1/lineitems?auth_token=TOKEN&where=executionState+not+in+RUNNING,ENDED
