Page tree



Performs a search for a list of individuals based on First Name, Last Name or Goes By Name.

Example Doe&pageIndex=0&pageSize=50


pageIndex and pageSize are not required for the API to work properly. These fields let you limit the number of records returned at one time and when you begin pulling information. If you do not enter this information, the index default is 0 and the size default is 50. 

For example, suppose you're looking for all the individuals with the first name John. 300 records match your criteria. If you leave the defaults, the first 50 matches display. If you change the pageIndex to 2, the next 50 matches are returned.

Within our example, the %20 represents a space. You can include this or simply use a space. In our example, to display the entire URL, the optional pageIndex and pageSize display on the next line. In actual usage, these two lines would be one.
