Before querying an AFS v7.7 search engine, the following information about the search service is necessary:
- Service identifier (serviceId)
- Service base URI (serviceURI)
- Service status (status)
The needed information can usually be obtained from the Search Service Project Manager, or from Antidot when the service is hosted on Antidot SaaS Cloud servers.
For example, the URL to the query service 7000 from http://afs7.afs-antidot.net with index status stable is http://afs-antidot.net/search?service=7000&afs:status=stable
