    Is there a wild card search supported in the TMF API.

    I was checking into TMF630 guideline and could not find anything related to do a wild card search which probably translated to LIKE kind of operator.

    Found one reference in the TMF673 API
    GET /street?fields=...&{filtering}&.fuzzy={true/false}

    Can this characteristic of .fuzzy = true be used as standard within other APIs where there is a need of fuzzy match?

    Hi Raj
    I suspect that due to the nature of the TMF673 (Geo Address) API, this fuzzy search is a specific notion for that API.
    In general, there is an option for APIs to implement JSON Path filtering, as described in TMF630 chapter 6.
    Of course it's not enough to specify in the API contract - the implementation of the API needs to support, which may be non-trivial.
    Hope it helps.
