Find and Search Methods

Learn and practice the find and search methods of TMDB API.

We’ll discuss two ways to search for and find movies, TV shows, and persons on TMDB in this lesson.

The find endpoint

We can use TMDB’s find endpoint with an integer type path parameter external_id to search for objects in the database by just an external ID. This method will search all objects (movies, TV shows, and persons) and return the results in a single JSON response.
