Curations

Want to start with the core concepts? Give our Curations guide a read.


Curations allow you to hide or promote result content. Note that each query may only belong to one curation.

Authentication

For authentication, the Credentials endpoint requires your unique Host Identifier, the name of your Engine and a Private API Key. The key begins with private- and was created for you upon account creation. You can find it, along with your Host Identifier, within the Credentials menu.

They fit into your requests like so:

curl -X GET 'https://[HOST_IDENTIFIER].api.swiftype.com/api/as/v1/engines/[ENGINE]/curations' \
-H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
-H 'Authorization: Bearer [PRIVATE_API_KEY]'

Request / Response Examples

Below you will find examples for the following operations:

List Curations

List All Curations

You can query the endpoint to generate an array of all active curations. Each objet includes: curation id, queries, promoted and hidden. The output supports pagination, defaulting to 25 items at a time.

GET /api/as/v1/curations
page
optional
Can provide...
current for current page
total_pages for the net number of pages

Errors

Request parameters can be quite particular. Did you get an error? Perhaps it is one of these?

What's Next?

Your Curations can become mighty tools in improving the relevance, and thus the overall experience, of search queries. Business goals, too, as you can get your visitors where you would like them to be. If you want to take a deep look into how users are interacting with your Engines, the Analytics and Clickthrough endpoints are worth exploring. Another useful technique to deploy are Synonyms.
