Search (Graph)



The active portal account must be licensed with the ArcGIS Knowledge user type extension to use Knowledge Graph Server services.

The search operation is performed on a knowledge graph service's graph resource. This operation allows you to search the properties of both entities and relationships in the graph using a full-text index that is automatically built on the graph's property values. Any property on an entity or relationship with the Text data type or the Globally Unique Identifier (GUID) data type will be indexed.
