As the title says, is it possible to search a JSON field through the REST Api?



For example I have a JSON field

specifications

with a content like this


{"category": "birds", "subcategory": "flying birds"}


Can I specifiy I only want collections where the

specifications.category

equals "birds"?



The real JSON content will be like the specifications in this gist:

    Yes, you can use dot notation. It would be something like this:

    /api/collection-name?where[specifications.category][equals]=flying birds

    Aha, @denolfe that does indeed work but only with string values.


    It does perform queries on

    name="400"

    but not on

    name=400

    I'm actually not seeing this work reliably, I'm wondering if changes in 2.0+ may have broken this?
