Lesson: Vector Services Query: Term

The workflow of API requests in which a user sends when using the Vector Services

Have an idea of what you're looking for? Querying is a more streamlined way of returning the vector items the user is looking for. Searching by term does not require the user to know anything beyond the basic concept of what they are looking for, and the only results returned will match that query. For the item type and term variation of the Vector Services query, go [here](doc:lesson-vs-query-type-term). Don't know what you're looking for? Start with a [basic search](doc:lesson-vs-basic-search). **For more information** on querying and query construction, check the [Query Syntax, Fields, and Item Type Suffixes](doc:vector-query-syntax-query-fields-and-type-suffixes) page and [Vector Services Example Query Constructions](doc:vs-example-query-constructions) page.
