Results

The 'count' method returns number:

Type/Value Range/Length Description
number -1, 0, or a positive integercount of entities matching search criteria, or -1 to indicate that the call failed.

Remarks

Calling parameters are exactly the same as the get call.
Use this call to determine how to display contact information based on the number of individuals to display.
The keywords array holds a list of all keywords to be searched for. Wildcards of % (representing any length of unspecified characters) and _ (representing a single unspecified character) can be used in the search. These characters may be introduced by the integration partners implicitly or typed in by the user. This will mean however that these characters may not themselves be searched for. Only alphabetical characters and numbers may be used in a search.
