    VXWS: SearchService ignores searchArgType when submitted via GET

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 8.2.0

    Bug Report Form for Issue 16384-13298
    Module(s): VXWS
    Server platform(s) affected: All
    PC OS (if applicable): N/A
    Browser & version (if applicable): N/A

    Release(s) replicated in: 7.x.x
    Last version without bug (if applicable): N/A

    Expected results: The ability to fully replicate searching functionality in WebVoy?ge through the SearchService.

    Actual results: Using the ^ to add an AND between all terms can only be done through the SearchService if submitted via a POST request; GET requests will ignore the variable.

    The ^ is added through the searchArgType variable, setting it equal to AND

    Workflow implications: Not all WebVoy?ge searches can be replicated through the API

    Replication steps:
    1. In, add “GKEY” as one of the searches on the Basic Search page: Search
    2. In WebVoy?ge, run a GKEY Search for “test”
    3. Take note of the number of results returned
    4. Submit the search to the SearchService over VXWS:
    5. Take note of the number of results returned, it will not be the same as step 3

    Fixed in VXWS services for 8.2.0.
