[Pdns-users] Question on APIs

I could make it work using something similar to


If I understood correctly, this will look for any in "zones, records and comments"

If I run this on my test environment I get

    "zone_id": "test100.com.",
    "zone": "test100.com.",
    "type": "A",
    "ttl": 300,
    "object_type": "record",
    "name": "test1.test100.com.",
    "disabled": false,
    "content": ""
    "zone_id": "cpe.test200.net.",
    "zone": "cpe.test200.net.",
    "type": "A",
    "ttl": 300,
    "object_type": "record",
    "name": "diego.cpe.test200.net.",
    "disabled": false,
    "content": ""
Is there a way with the API "search-data" to look only for "" under the zone "cpe.test200.net" so that I can get only 1 result?
I am not sure if this can be done or not

Any suggestion?

Subject: Question on APIs

Hi all,
I have started to read documentation and play with power dns API

However I can find any help on internet on how to do the following action (if it is possible of course)

Let say I have some A records  under the zone example.org

1) I would like to find all the A records whose name contain a fixed-string
2) I would like to find all the A records whose content is a fixed-string (in case of A record, this means to look for all the A records that have the same IP)

I know that maybe I could use
URL: /api/v1/servers/localhost/search-data?q=:search_term&max=:max_results

But I can't work out how to make it working

Could anyone give me an example or a link where I could find them?
Or If you have any other idea on how to do the above via api, I would love some suggestions
