Constructing REST API Queries

Voyager supports a REST-based Query API. See Using Voyager's REST API for an introduction.

Note: These APIs are subject to change with each software release for the purpose of incorporating improvements in system design, performance, and new software features. Specifically, field names (type information) are often modified to reflect changes in the types of information indexed. For the current API information, contact support@voyagersearch.com.

JSON and XML Response Formats

API queries can return information in either JSON or XML format (XML is the default).
