I’m trying to further improve my .NET library for handling api calls to PVOutput.org and I’ve run in to a problem.
It appears there are search queries I can do in the “Find”-box on the site, that do not work when done through the api. For example the following query works on the site:
4250 size, but if I try it through the api call:
https://pvoutput.org/service/r2/search.jsp?q=4250 size (the space is encoded to %20)
The result is two blank lines. Obviously the api key and my own system are in the headers. I haven’t yet tested every query parameter but the orientation query (
fronius +N) appears to have the same problem. I thought the space character was the problem, but a query like
92 postcode works like expected so that’s not the cause. It seems query parameter related.
Am I doing something wrong or is there some bug in this part of the api?
