search query by ListingID
I am trying to create a query using phrets to download records by L_ListingID
$results = $rets->Search('Property', 'RU_2', '*', ['Limit' => 1, 'Select' => "224934467"]);
I am getting return error "invalid Select" This is a test query - i am trying to write the query to select up to 100 L_ListingID's - can you point me in the right direction?
here is the solution
$results = $rets->Search('Property', 'RU_2', 'L_ListingID=224934467', ['Limit' => 1]);
does the property class need to be in the query ?
What RETS Version are you using?
RETS/1.8 and up allow you to send an empty query
Normally you would want to do incremental searches by date: (L_UpdateDate=2018-11-18+)
To pull a list where you know the IDs use query: (ListingID=123,124,128) to pull 3 listings by ID.
Select is the comma separated list of field names you want to return if you include it.
Were you able to get this working?
I think so...so what i am trying to doing is this. Download just the basics
compare the input dates to determine which listings require updates.
download up to 200 or so id's at a time to update. ( any more than 250 and i get a curl error )
the question i have now is involving pictures. is there a query to just download a particular index
I can pull much more than 200 with PHRETS, but I had to change some settings:
ini_set("default_socket_timeout", 6000); // seconds
You can use Offset and limit to pull data in batches too.
interesting - i am using xampp for testing - i will check the time out and try again - previously i was downloading all records in batches of 1500 - no errors--- by downloading specific ID's the query length is very large - i believe that to be part of the curl error - i will try again and make note of the error
I get Curl Error 27 - when i try 500 ID's CURLE_OUT_OF_MEMORY
I set the memory real high but you may need to user lower values.
But I would suggest using Offset and Limit functionality instead of big lists of IDs.
The other option is to use POST instead of GET.
$config->setOption('use_post_method', true); // boolean
Also I'm using PHRETS 2.0.
Were you able to get this working better?
