pnp.sp.search > syntax question (from SharePoint search API URL to PnP)

Regular Contributor

For the first time I do some testing using pnp.sp.search. 

My first simple test is like this:

pnp.sp.search("SharePoint").then((result : SearchResults)

Now I want to convert an api search to pnp. My query is like this:

https://blabla.sharepoint.com/sites/test/_api/search/query?querytext='ContentType:TEST_matters'&refinementfilters='RefinableString18:equals("false")'

I've done some searching on the internet to find the syntax to covert this to pnp but no luck so far.

 

So how do I change my querystring in order to get it working with PnP?

 

Thanks, Mike

You can pass a plain object of the search properties from the query string into the search method. You can check the wiki page on search to help get you started.

Hi @Patrick Rodgers. I tried this but it looks like I'm doing something wrong.

 

pnp.sp.search(<SearchQuery>{    Querytext: "ContentType:TEST_matters&refinementfilters=RefinableString18:equals("false")",
    RowLimit: 10,
    EnableInterleaving: true,
}).then((r: SearchResults)

Can you help me out here?

Thanks

Got it!! I tried to put the filter in the querytekst. Seems to be a wrong approach. This is the working code:

 pnp.sp.search(<SearchQuery>{
      Querytext: "ContentType:TEST_matters",
      RowLimit: 10,
      EnableInterleaving: true,
      RefinementFilters: ["RefinableString18:equals('false')"],
      }).then((result: SearchResults) =>
