    Question REST query should work, but doesn't

    I've seen examples in a few places (including this one: User Migration - ZimbraWiki ) of how to retrieve a list of all contacts that have been tagged with a certain tag.

    The published format is:
    Code:
    http://server/zimbra/home/schemers/contacts.csv?query="tag:zimbra"
    But when I try this:
    Code:
    http://192.168.0.112/zimbra/home/dreed/contacts.csv?query="tag:bureau"
    I get a CSV file with the field header row, but no content. And several contacts are tagged with the 'bureau' tag.

    If I leave off the query part of the URL, it returns all contacts as it should.

    Why isn't the query working?

    As an alternative, does anyone have an example of a SOAP call that returns all the fields for all contacts that match a tag?

    Thanks.

    Default Don't use quotes!

    Do not quote the query. If you quote the query, Zimbra treats it as a string search, and that string doesn't appear in any messages...

    Default almost there...

    Bingo.

    Taking off the quotes solved the problem -- thank you. There are at least a couple of places on zimbra.com where the quoted syntax is shown; may want to look for that next time someone cleans up documentation.

    A new question exposed: the query doesn't include contacts from all of my address books -- only the main 'Contacts' book. What query do I use to to include contacts in other/all address books?

    Default "contacts.csv" says to constrain to the "Contacts" folder

    Try somthing like this:
    Code:
    http://192.168.0.112/zimbra/home/dreed/?fmt=csv&query=tag:bureau
