API integration with search


#1

Hello, working on a custom API integration and would like to be able to search for the parent account ID of an inventory MAC address or serial number in order to then get additional data tied to that account.

I have read only access to a sonar instance and it seems am not able to do a POST request to use the search functionality.

I am able to use GET requests to return data just fine, so long as I know beforehand the account ID I’d like to get data from, so it does not appear to be a syntax issue.

  1. Can read only access use the search? Am I just doing it wrong?
  2. Is there a different account type that can safely use SEARCH functionality without exposure to WRITE access liability?

TIA!

No, it’s the same permissions overall. What are you trying to search that is failing, that you can otherwise GET?
