This capability allows you to use the Search REST service to submit Keyword Query Language (KQL) or FAST Query Language (FQL) queries in apps for SharePoint, mobile apps, and remote client apps and in addition the new Search REST service also supports both HTTP POST and HTTP GET requests. For GET requests, you would construct the URI for query GET requests to utilize the Search REST service by using the following: / api/search/query The GET requests specifies the query parameters in the URL and can utilize two different options for constructing GET requests as detailed below: ttp://server/ api/search/query?query parameter=value&query parameter=value or http://server/ api/search/query(query parameter=value&query parameter=<value>) For POST requests, you would construct the URI for query POST requests to utilize the Search REST service by using the following: / api/search/postquery The POST requests are passed via the query parameters in the request in JSON (JavaScript Object Notion) format and the HTTP POST version of the Search REST service supports all the parameters supported by the HTTP GET version
