Global API Parameters

The following parameters are valid globally on the API:

  • localization – Change the default localization of the user. This will affect results language and content selection.

    Note that changing the localization won’t give access to geoblocked content of the defined localization. The IP of the API consumer is always used for this kind of restriction. You can use a standard locale like fr_FR, en_US or simply en, it.

  • family_filter – Enable/disable the family filter. By default, the family filter is on. Changing this parameter will filter-out
