Subject RE: PHP-Reference-Gateway | Query

Hi, Gagan. I’m not sure how the API handles a null search query, but I purposefully chose
to make the field mandatory in the gateway. Maybe it’s just me, but I find it strange that
it would return everything when you search for nothing.

If it behaved as you describe, the page would list all of the experiments/projects owned by
that user. Presently, that functionality is performed by the Browse page. Perhaps it would
make sense to eliminate the Browse page, and just use search for everything. I would be OK
with that, but I would advocate for the user having to enter a wildcard character like ‘*’
instead of accepting an empty string.

Subject: PHP-Reference-Gateway | Query

Hi Team,
I am playing with the PHP version deployed of Airavata API (
While doing search for an experiment or a project the search keyword (based on the criteria
I selected) is mandatory field. Which In my opinion should not be mandatory and should return
all possible results for that category.

Is there any specific reason behind making this field mandatory?
