Resource

Query String

Search supports the following query string parameters:

Search type is direct to search for direct membership and effective to search for effective memberships. Default is direct membership.

Search scope is one to limit results to one level of stem name and all to return all groups.

Searches by name may include the wildcard (*) character.  Note that the V2 search resource automatically searches as if wildcards are present before and after the search string, i.e. *parts_of_name*, even if wildcards are not present in the search string.  You can explicitly add wildcards to a V2 name search string, but they won't change the behavior.  The V3 resource requires wildcards be explicitly defined.  

Search by instructor to find courses for a given instructor.
