Describe how to look for URLs of your site.

Rationale

The URL explorer returns information about pages matching your criteria, and for each page returns the selected fields.

Making Requests

URL explorer with a GET request at /api/crawls/{crawl_id}/url-explorer.

An URL explorer query is formed by:

  • One or more filters. Each filter selects a set of page and restrict the scope of pages to return. If more than one filter is given, then the final scope of pages is the conjunction of all filters. A list of available filters can be obtained at /api/{project_id}/quickfilters

  • A comma separated list of fields to return for each page. The list of available fields depends on each crawl and can be obtained at /api/crawls/{crawl_id}/querybuilder/fields

  • Pagination controls: number of items to return, offset in the list, sort order.

Examples

List of all crawl pages, with a default set of fields

import json, requests

token = 'TOKEN'
crawl_id = 'CRAWL-ID'
url = 'https://app.oncrawl.com/api/crawls/{}/url-explorer'.format(crawl_id)
resp = requests.get(url, headers={'x-oncrawl-token': token},
                    params=dict(base_filters='crawled_pages'))
print json.dumps(resp.json(), indent=2, sort_keys=True)

Below the request JSON response:
