Many API methods accept filtering and matching parameters. A client can request specific content from the API by specifying a set of filters.


The match[<field>] field parameter can be used to filter documents given the value of a specific field. A filter parameter can be specified any number of times, where all filter fields are ANDed together.

It should be noted that each field must not occur more than once. Multiple values of a match parameter are separated by a comma (U+002C COMMA, “,”) without any spaces. If multiple values are present, the match is treated as a logical OR.

Examples of match parameters

# list alerts triggered on entity entity1 or entity2

# list alerts triggered on entity1 with rule named rule1 or rule2
