Episerver Content Delivery API Query by Category?



Does anyone know if a way to query the content delivery api by a category id? For example if we have the following JSON

    faqCategory: {
        PropertyDataType$$string: "PropertyLongString",
        ___types: [
            "EPiServer.ContentApi.Core.PropertyModel`2[[System.String, mscorlib, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089],[EPiServer.Core.PropertyLongString, EPiServer, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=8fe83dea738b45b7]]",
            "EPiServer.ContentApi.Core.IPropertyModel`1[[EPiServer.Core.PropertyLongString, EPiServer, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=8fe83dea738b45b7]]",
        $type: "EPiServer.ContentApi.Core.LongStringPropertyModel, EPiServer.ContentApi.Core",
        Value$$string: "FAQCategory1"

My normal query is

/api/episerver/v1.0/search/content?filter=ContentType%2Fany(t%3At eq 'FAQPage')

How would I query and get all the pages that have FAQCategory1 as the Value$$string for faqCategory field? I've tried

faqCategory en 'FAQCategory1'

faqCategory/Value en 'FAQCategory1'

No luck... Any ideas? There doesn't seem to be much for documentation on Episerver Content Delivery API query parameters.

The "category" is a separate property (which is not content type) that why the query filter=ContentType%2Fany(t%3At eq 'FAQPage') does not work. Given an "Alloy Plan" category has an id equals "3", you can use the standard OData syntax to query it just like any other properties:

/api/episerver/v2.0/search/content?filter=category/value/id eq 3


/api/episerver/v2.0/search/content?filter=category/value/name eq 'Alloy Plan'
