Autocomplete API

API access to PDL's canonicalized datasets

Overview

The Autocomplete API is a tool that allows users to retrieve suggestions for Search API query values along with the number of available records for each suggestion (for example, schools starting with "stanf"). The Autocomplete API is currently in open beta as we work with our customers to help make this the best product it can be.

This API provides access to our canonicalized datasets and is meant to be used in conjunction with the Person and Company Search API’s as a way of previewing what records are available before retrieving the records. The Autocomplete API currently supports completion for the following types of field values:

  • company: Company names
  • country: Country names
  • industry: Industries
  • location: Location names
  • major: Educational majors (field of study)
  • region: Region name (e.g. states for the US)
  • role: Job roles
  • sub_role: Job sub roles
  • school: School names
  • skill: Skills
  • title: Job titles
