  • hash GET Optional

    Customer search condition hash string encoded for safe use in URLs. An empty hash corresponds to the 'all' hash meaning a complete list of customers.

    Hash examples:
    - search/firstname=John: search by value 'John' of the field 'firstname' in the 'wa_contact' table. a condition operator instead of '=' in this example you can also use the following: '=' (matching value), '*=' (partial matching of a string value), '^=' (matching beginning of a string value), '=$' (matching ending of a string value), '!=' (no matching), math operators '<', '=', '>', '<=', '>='. You can perform search by several fields using the '&' character; e.g., 'search/firstname=John&birth_year>=2000'.
    - search/name*=John Peter: search by partial matching of name parts to subqueries separated by whitespace characters. In this example found will be all customers whose full names contain both words in any combinations; e.g., 'John Petersen', 'Peter Johnson'. If only one of the specified words is found in a customer’s name then such a customer is not included in the returned result.
    - search/ search by full email address.
    - search/email$ search by a part of an email address.
    - search/category=1: search by a customer category ID.
    - search/address:country=rus: search by a 3-letter country code from the customer address.
    - search/address:country*=United: search by the beginning of a localized country name in the address.
    - search/address:region=usa:AL: search by a country (in this example 'rus') and a region code ('AL') in the address.
    - search/address:region*=ALA: search by a part of a region name in the address.
    - search/phone=110011122333: search by a phone number.
    - search/phone.home=110011122333: search by a phone number including a number type (in this example 'home').
    - search/phone^=1100: search by a part of a phone number.
    - search/phone^=0100: search by a part of a phone number with the country code replaced with an NDD; works only if the specified NDD (in this example 0) is saved in the authorization settings of any website.
