Pre-July 2021 Release Notice
Changes to the Search API
We are anticipating a few minor changes to our Person Search API which we wanted to give advanced warning about.
Index Mapping Changes
We will be changing the mapping of the
experience.title.name fields in our search API index from text default, with an inner keyword mapping to keyword default with an inner text mapping.
While we are seeing a high volume of customers make requests with title in the search API, most of them are mistakenly treating the default mapping (text) as a keyword mapping, causing them to get less results than they intend.
Tracking 0 Results as 404s instead of 200s
To avoid future confusion, search API results that return 0 records will now return a
404 response code instead of a
Changing the default de-duplication in the search API
Previously, any record in any of our datasets would be returned by default in the search API. This caused confusion due to the rate of duplication between datasets. We will now by default return records in the resume dataset, with a new parameter that will let you expose data from the other datasets.
