Search - Get Search Polygon

Get Polygon

Applies to: S1 pricing tier.

The Get Polygon service allows you to request the geometry data such as a city or country outline for a set of entities, previously retrieved from an Online Search request in GeoJSON format. The geometry ID is returned in the dataSources object under "geometry" and "id" in either a Search Address or Search Fuzzy call.

Please note that any geometry ID retrieved from an Online Search endpoint has a limited lifetime. The client should not store geometry IDs in persistent storage for later referral, as the stability of these identifiers is not guaranteed for a long period of time. It is expected that a request to the Polygon method is made within a few minutes of the request to the Online Search method that provided the ID. The service allows for batch requests up to 20 identifiers.

Request Header

Name Required Type Description
x-ms-client-id

400 Bad Request

Bad request: one or more parameters were incorrectly specified or are mutually exclusive.

Media Types: "application/json", "application/xml"

401 Unauthorized

Access denied due to invalid subscription key or invalid Azure Active Directory bearer token. Make sure to provide a valid key for an active Azure subscription and Maps resource. Otherwise, verify the WWW-Authenticate header for error code and description of the provided AAD bearer token.

Media Types: "application/json", "application/xml"

Headers

  • WWW-Authenticate: string
403 Forbidden

Permission, capacity, or authentication issues.

Media Types: "application/json", "application/xml"

Security

azure_auth

These are the Azure Active Directory OAuth2 Flows. When paired with Azure Role Based Access control it can be used to control access to Azure Maps REST APIs. Azure Role based access controls are used to designate access to one or more Azure Maps resource account or sub-resources. Any user, group, or service principal can be granted access via a built in role or a custom role composed of one or more permissions to Azure Maps REST APIs.

To implement scenarios we recommend viewing authentication concepts. In summary, this security definition provides a solution for modeling application(s) via objects capable of access control on specific APIs and scopes.

Note

  • This security definition requires the use of the x-ms-client-id header to indicate which Azure Maps resource the application is requesting access to. This can be acquired from the Maps management API.
  • The Authorization URL is specific to the Azure public cloud instance. Sovereign clouds have unique Authorization URLs and Azure Active directory configurations.
  • The Azure role based access control is configured from the Azure management plane via Azure portal, Powershell, CLI, Azure SDKs, or REST APIs.
  • Usage of the Azure Maps Web SDK allows for configuration based setup of an application for multiple use cases.
  • Currently Azure Active Directory v1.0 tokens are supported.

Type: oauth2
Flow: implicit
Authorization URL: https://login.microsoftonline.com/common/oauth2/authorize

subscription-key

This is a shared key which is provisioned when creating an Azure Maps resource through the Azure management plane via Azure portal, Powershell, CLI, Azure SDKs, or REST APIs. With this key, any application is authorized to access all REST APIs. In other words, these can currently be treated as master keys to the account which they are issued for. For publicly exposed applications our recommendation is to use server to server access of Azure Maps REST APIs where this key can be securely stored.

Type: apiKey
In: query
