Is it possible to search for a category by a custom attribute?

I have added a custom attribute "category_code" that i would like to do a rest search on.

Is there a way to do this througt the V1/search interface?

    There does not seem to be a way to achieve this for now, it is impossible for core attributes either. – Alex Paliarush Mar 23 '16 at 21:58

Problem solved!

I did a cut'n'paste of the getList from the ProductRepository. Removed all unnecessary code and changed the constructor.

  • Hi @SinaMiandashti I didn't intend to maintain this module. But i included this code in another module and it works fine on Magento 2.1.3 in default mode on php 7.0.14. – TNordkvist Feb 2 '17 at 7:27

    I've got a similar module here which I'm actively using so it should keep working github.com/lingwooc/flatCategory-magento2 Currently working in CE 2.1.7. I've not credited @TNordkvist as I wrote it before I found this. – Chris Lingwood Jun 30 '17 at 11:45
