The Exoplanet Archive data are accessed primarily through a web interface, but users who have some programming knowledge may write scripts that automate specific search queries. These queries must follow a structure that is compatible with the Exoplanet Archive's application programming interface (API).
This page contains a compilation of various online documents and resources for the archive's API users.
API User Guide: How to program your own queries.
Query Syntax: Which keywords to use in your queries.
Build a Sample Query: Step-by-step instructions for building a query.
Troubleshooting: Things to try when your query doesn't work.
Pre-generated Queries: Examples of valid queries that you can copy and paste into a command-line interface or web browser.
The following documents provide the names and definitions of each parameter that can be accessed through the API.
