Setting thumbnail image sizes to be returned from a GeneralSearch call

Hi guys,

I'm trying to make a call to the JSON API using the following JSON object;

{
"apiVersion":"1.0",
"sessionId":"SESSION_ID_FROM_API",
"inParams":{"query":"test","thumbsize":6,"exactMatches":"false","fields":{"metadata":"true"}},
"action":"Search.GeneralSearch"
}

The way I figure it after looking at //secure.thirdlight.com/developer/viewtopic.php?pid=13 , that should work and return a thumbnail of width 480 and height 320, unless the thumbsize property only works with the getThumbDetails method?

According to //secure.thirdlight.com/developer/viewtopic.php?pid=53 , the thumbsize attribute should be a string representing the image size, as backed up by the API documentation.

This also doesn't work for me. However, the code still runs and returns information, just without thumbnails at the size I want.

What am I doing wrong here?

Re: Setting thumbnail image sizes to be returned from a GeneralSearch call

Hi AMroche,

I can confirm that 'thumbsize' is a property that can only be requested in the GetThumbDetails() method and not by GeneralSearch(). To see what inputs are accepted by GeneralSearch(), please see the API command reference:
