REST API's Where clause

Yang Wen asked on September 9, 2016 20:40

I know you can specify simple where clause in your queries against the REST API.

Does it support the keyword BETWEEN? I've tried a bit and could not get it to work.

I want to return from REST a subset of data from the table, dictated by the data's creation date. Thanks

You can use less than and greater than operators:

/rest/cms.user/all?where=lastlogon>'2016-09-09T00:0:00.0000000' and lastlogon<'2016-09-11T00:0:00.0000000'

It looks like TO_DATE is also not available

The documentation says you have to use a where as a querystring:

SQL WHERE condition for filtering the loaded data. The parameter only allows the following types of SQL syntax:
column names, values and basic operators: =, !=, >, <
AND & OR operators, parentheses
column BETWEEN value AND value
column LIKE value
column IN (values)
column IS NULL
NOT keyword for the above expressions (NOT BETWEEN, NOT LIKE, NOT IN, IS NOT NULL)
Other expressions and SQL functions are not supported.
Example: ~/rest/cms.user?Where=UserIsEditor=1

Yes I have successfully applied a WHERE clause in the query string, but Date specific functions seem to be not supported. I see the v9 documentation now explicitly lists the supported SQL Syntax, whereas the v8 doc did not. Thanks

So let me ask a follow up question. Without using the Where clause in URL query string, is there a way to filter what's returned by the REST API based on value in a date column?
