How to get the number of records in Primo VE by criteria

or how many records there are with a specific material type ie book.

 

Instructions

Or another option, is to use the following URL structure to perform a broad search with a wildcard with one or more conditions, for example:

https://<hostname>/discovery/search?query=any,contains,”*”&tab=<slot_code>&search_scope=<search_profile_code>&vid=<institution_code:view_code>&facet=rtype,include,books

or another example to get the number of new records in the last three months:

https://<hostname>/discovery/search?query=any,contains,%22*%22&tab=<slot_code>&search_scope=<search_profile_code>&vid=<institution_code:view_code>&facet=newrecords,include,90%20days%20back,lk
