Search

La API de búsqueda permite buscar elementos específicos en GitHub Enterprise Cloud.

Acerca de la API de búsqueda

La API de Búsqueda te ayuda a buscar el elemento específico que quieres encontrar. Por ejemplo, puedes buscar un usuario o un archivo específico en el repositorio. Tómalo como el simil de realizar una búsqueda en Google. Se diseñó para ayudarte a encontrar el resultado exacto que estás buscando (o tal vez algunos de los resultados que buscas). Tal como la búsqueda en Google, a veces quieres ver algunas páginas de los resultados de búsqueda para que puedas encontrar el elemento que mejor satisfaga tus necesidades. Para satisfacer esta necesidad, la API de búsqueda de GitHub Enterprise Cloud proporciona hasta 1000 resultados por búsqueda.

Puedes delimitar tu búsqueda utilizando consultas. Para obtener más información sobre la sintaxis de las consultas de búsqueda, consulte "Construcción de una consulta de búsqueda".

Clasificar los resultados de la búsqueda

A menos de que se proporcione algún otro tipo de opción como parámetro de consulta, los resultados se clasificarán de acuerdo a la exactitud de la coincidencia en orden descendente. Varios factores se combinan para impulsar el elemento más relevante hasta arriba de la lista de resultados.

Límite de frecuencia

La API de Búsqueda tiene un límite de tasa personalizado. En el caso de las solicitudes que usan la autenticación básica, OAuth o un identificador de cliente y un secreto, puede realizar hasta 30 solicitudes por minuto. En el caso de las solicitudes sin autenticación, el límite de frecuencia le permite hacer hasta 10 solicitudes por minuto.

Consulte la documentación sobre el límite de frecuencia para obtener más información sobre cómo determinar el estado actual de su límite de frecuencia.

Construir una consulta de búsqueda

Cada punto de conexión de la API de búsqueda usa parámetros de consulta para realizar búsquedas en GitHub Enterprise Cloud. Observa la terminal individual an la API de Búsqueda para encontrar un ejemplo que incluye los parámetros de consulta y de terminal.

Una consulta puede contener cualquier combinación de calificadores de búsqueda que sea compatible con GitHub Enterprise Cloud. El formato de esta consulta de búsqueda es:

SEARCH_KEYWORD_1 SEARCH_KEYWORD_N QUALIFIER_1 QUALIFIER_N

Por ejemplo, si quiere buscar todos los repositorios que pertenecen a defunkt y contienen las palabras GitHub y Octocat en el archivo Léame, puede usar la consulta siguiente con el punto de conexión de búsqueda en repositorios:

GitHub Octocat in:readme user:defunkt

Nota: Asegúrese de usar el codificador HTML preferido de su lenguaje de programación para construir las cadenas de consulta. Por ejemplo:

// JavaScript
const queryString = 'q=' + encodeURIComponent('GitHub Octocat in:readme user:defunkt');

Vea "Búsqueda en GitHub" para consultar una lista completa de los calificadores disponibles, su formato y ejemplos de cómo usarlos. Para obtener más información sobre cómo usar los operadores para que coincidan con cantidades y fechas específicas, o para que excluyan resultados, vea "Descripción de la sintaxis de búsqueda".

Limitaciones sobre la longitud de la consulta

La API de búsqueda no es compatible con consultas que:

  • sean mayores a 256 caracteres (sin incluir los operadores o calificativos).
  • Tienen más de cinco operadores AND, OR o NOT.

Estas consultas de búsqueda devolverán un mensaje de error de "Validation failed".

Tiempos excedidos y resultados incompletos

Para que la API de búsqueda sea rápida para todos, limitamos el tiempo que puede ejecutarse una consulta individual. Para las consultas que superan el límite de tiempo, la API devuelve las coincidencias que se han encontrado antes de que se cumpla el tiempo de espera y la respuesta tiene la propiedad incomplete_results establecida en true.

Llegar a una interrupción no necesariamente significa que los resultados de búsqueda estén incompletos. Puede que se hayan encontrado más resultados, pero también puede que no.

Errores de acceso o resultados de búsqueda faltantes

Necesita autenticarse correctamente y tener acceso a los repositorios en sus consultas de búsqueda, de otro modo, verá un error 422 Unprocessable Entry con el mensaje "Validation Failed". Por ejemplo, se producirá un error en la búsqueda si su consulta incluye calificadores repo:, user: o org: que solicitan recursos a los cuales no tiene acceso cuando inicia sesión en GitHub.

Cuando su consulta de búsqueda solicita recursos múltiples, la respuesta solo contendrá aquellos a los que tenga acceso y no proporcionará un mensaje de error que liste los recursos que no se han devuelto.

Por ejemplo, si la consulta de búsqueda busca en los repositorios octocat/test y codertocat/test, pero solo tiene acceso a octocat/test, la respuesta mostrará los resultados de la búsqueda para octocat/test y no mostrará nada para codertocat/test. Este comportamiento simula cómo funciona la búsqueda en GitHub.

Metadatos en el texto coincidente

En GitHub, puedes utilizar el contexto que te proporcionan los extractos de código y los puntos destacados en los resultados de búsqueda. La API de Búsqueda ofrece metadatos adicionales que te permiten resaltar los términos de búsqueda coincidentes cuando se muestran los resultados de la búsqueda.

resaltado del fragmento de código

Las solicitudes pueden decidir recibir esos fragmentos de texto en la respuesta, y cada fragmento se acompaña de intervalos numéricos que identifican la ubicación exacta de cada término de búsqueda coincidente.

Para obtener estos metadatos en los resultados de búsqueda, especifique el tipo de medio text-match en el encabezado Accept.

application/vnd.github.text-match+json

Al proporcionar el tipo de medio text-match, recibirá una clave extra en la carga de JSON llamada text_matches, la cual proporciona información sobre la posición de sus términos de búsqueda dentro del texto y la propiedad (property) que incluye dicho término de búsqueda. Dentro de la matriz text_matches, cada objeto incluye los siguientes atributos:

NombreDescripción
object_urlLa URL del recurso que contiene una propiedad de secuencia que empata con uno de los términos de búsqueda.
object_typeEl nombre del tipo de recurso que existe en el atributo object_url especificado.
propertyEl nombre de la propiedad del recurso que existe en object_url. Esa propiedad es una secuencia que empata con uno de los términos de la búsqueda. (En el código JSON que se devuelve de object_url, el contenido completo del objeto fragment se encontrará en la propiedad con este nombre).
fragmentUn subconjunto del valor de property. Este es el fragmento de texto que empata con uno o más de los términos de búsqueda.
matchesUna matriz de uno o más términos de búsqueda presentes en el objeto fragment. Los índices (es decir, "intervalos") son relativos al fragmento. (No son relativos al contenido completo del objeto property).

Ejemplo

Con cURL y el ejemplo de búsqueda de incidencias anterior, nuestra solicitud de API tendría este aspecto:

curl -H 'Accept: application/vnd.github.text-match+json' \
'https://api.github.com/search/issues?q=windows+label:bug \
+language:python+state:open&sort=created&order=asc'

La respuesta incluirá una matriz text_matches para cada resultado de búsqueda. En el código JSON siguiente, tenemos dos objetos en la matriz text_matches.

La primera coincidencia de texto se produjo en la propiedad body de la incidencia. Aquí vemos un fragmento de texto del cuerpo del informe de problemas. El término de búsqueda (windows) aparece dos veces en ese fragmento, y tenemos los índices de cada aparición.

La segunda coincidencia de texto se produjo en la propiedad body de uno de los comentarios de la incidencia. Tenemos la URL para el comentario del informe de problemas. Y, por supuesto, vemos un fragmento de texto del cuerpo del comentario. El término de búsqueda (windows) aparece una vez en ese fragmento.

Search code

Funciona con GitHub Apps

Searches for query terms inside of a file. This method returns up to 100 results per page.

When searching for code, you can get text match metadata for the file content and file path fields when you pass the text-match media type. For more details about how to receive highlighted search results, see Text match metadata.

For example, if you want to find the definition of the addClass function inside jQuery repository, your query would look something like this:

q=addClass+in:file+language:js+repo:jquery/jquery

This query searches for the keyword addClass within a file's contents. The query limits the search to files where the language is JavaScript in the jquery/jquery repository.

Due to the complexity of searching code, there are a few restrictions on how searches are performed:

  • Only the default branch is considered. In most cases, this will be the master branch.
  • Only files smaller than 384 KB are searchable.
  • You must always include at least one search term when searching source code. For example, searching for language:go is not valid, while amazing language:go is.

Search issues and pull requests

Funciona con GitHub Apps

Find issues by state and keyword. This method returns up to 100 results per page.

When searching for issues, you can get text match metadata for the issue title, issue body, and issue comment body fields when you pass the text-match media type. For more details about how to receive highlighted search results, see Text match metadata.

For example, if you want to find the oldest unresolved Python bugs on Windows. Your query might look something like this.

q=windows+label:bug+language:python+state:open&sort=created&order=asc

This query searches for the keyword windows, within any open issue that is labeled as bug. The search runs across repositories whose primary language is Python. The results are sorted by creation date in ascending order, which means the oldest issues appear first in the search results.

Note: For user-to-server GitHub App requests, you can't retrieve a combination of issues and pull requests in a single query. Requests that don't include the is:issue or is:pull-request qualifier will receive an HTTP 422 Unprocessable Entity response. To get results for both issues and pull requests, you must send separate queries for issues and pull requests. For more information about the is qualifier, see "Searching only issues or pull requests."
