Select columns Column select is how you specify the content of an SQL SELECT c_only, c_certain, c_columns FROM clause. More detail is in the following sections. *
Order order_by Column order is how you specify the content of an SQL ORDER BY clause. More detail is in the following sections. null
Lookup vary by column name Column lookups are how you specify the content of an SQL WHERE clause. More detail is in the following sections. *


Column select is how you specify the content of an SQL SELECT c_only, c_certain, c_columns FROM clause. It specifies as a keyword argument to the query string of API Call URL. Basic usage is a comma-separated list of column names. If not given, the default value is *(asterisk).

Example 1 :

Query : ?columns=C1,C2,C3 SQL Equivalent : Select C1,C2,C3 from DATA_PRODUCT

Example 2 :

Query : Not Given | ?columns= | ?columns=* SQL Equivalent : Select * from DATA_PRODUCT


Column order is how you specify the content of an SQL ORDER BY clause. It specifies as a keyword argument to the query string of API Call URL. Basic usage is a comma-separated list of column names where each column name has an appropriate suffix (asc,desc) after _(underscore) or no suffix (means ascending).

Example :

Query : ?order_by=C1_asc,C2,C3_desc,C4_asc SQL Equivalent : Select * from DATA_PRODUCT order by C1 asc, C2, C4 desc, C4 asc

Order Type Suffix
Ascending null
Ascending asc
Descending desc


Column lookups are how you specify the content of an SQL WHERE clause. They’re specifies as keyword arguments to the query string of API Call URL. Basic usage is appending _(underscore) then lookup type as a suffix to name of the column that you want to filter. The query parameter for a column is built like the format {COLUMN_NAME}_{LOOKUP_TYPE}

As a convenience when no lookup type is provided

Lookup Type Suffix Value Type Example SQL Equivalent
Equal to null String | Numeric | Datetime ?COLUMN=VALUE Select * from DATA_PRODUCT where COLUMN=VALUE
Equal to eq String | Numeric | Datetime ?COLUMN_eq=VALUE Select * from DATA_PRODUCT where COLUMN=VALUE
Not Equal to neq String | Numeric | Datetime ?COLUMN_neq=VALUE Select * from DATA_PRODUCT where COLUMN<>VALUE
Greater Than gt Numeric | Datetime ?COLUMN_gt=VALUE Select * from DATA_PRODUCT where COLUMN>VALUE
Greater Than or Equal to gte Numeric | Datetime ?COLUMN_gte=VALUE Select * from DATA_PRODUCT where COLUMN>=VALUE
Less Than lt Numeric | Datetime ?COLUMN_lt=VALUE Select * from DATA_PRODUCT where COLUMN,VALUE
Less Than or Equal to lte Numeric | Datetime ?COLUMN_lte=VALUE Select * from DATA_PRODUCT where COLUMN<=VALUE
In in String ?COLUMN_in=V1,V2,V3 Select * from DATA_PRODUCT where COLUMN in ('V1','V2','V3')
Not In notin String ?COLUMN_notin=V1,V2,V3 Select * from DATA_PRODUCT where COLUMN not in ('V1','V2','V3')
