Available Filters

You can add filters to your request so that the response includes only certain regions. You can also use wildcards in a filter value. Use an asterisk (*) to match zero or more characters. Use a question mark (?) to match exactly one character. To escape special characters, use a backslash (\) before the character. For example, a value of \*eucalyptus\?\\ searches for the literal string *eucalyptus?\.
