allow_no_match

(Optional, Boolean) Specifies what to do when the request:

  • Contains wildcard expressions and there are no datafeeds that match.
  • Contains the _all string or no identifiers and there are no matches.
  • Contains wildcard expressions and there are only partial matches.

The default value is true, which returns an empty datafeeds array when there are no matches and the subset of results when there are partial matches. If this parameter is false, the request returns a 404 status code when there are no matches or only partial matches.
