Hi

I added the extension: Search to the air table,

This link: https://airtable.com/marketplace/blknmXKkZjB7scdSq/search

This is a great search function to search all the fields in the table. Is this available in an api format, not just on the web interface of the AirTable?
 

Thanks

You can query a pre-filtered view or use built in javascript methods to replicate this search functionality. Query your base to get a list of records, map the record ID + cell value(s) you want to search to an array, filter the array and spit out the record ID/value you want to find.

The web API is documented on this page, and it lets you search by a view or by an Airtable formula — or both.

If you need help encoding your API query, Airtable’s API Encoder Tool was designed for that.

Or, if you’re looking for more of a low-code way of performing your search, I would recommend using Make’s Search Module for Airtable.
