Is it possible to search for artists that have a WikiData external link?


#1

I’m still not very good at searching, so I would like to ask if it’s possible to search for artists that have a WikiData external link?

Not as such, I think - I think you can search for all Wikidata links, but not specifically limit them to artists, and can’t search for artists by link type. Unless you have a copy of the SQL database, in which case you can do everything, of course.


#3

Really? how?

I‘m only aware that you can search for edits that involve a Wikidata link.

http://musicbrainz.org/ws/2/url/?query=wikidata but it seems it only works in the web service at the moment.

There is also @nikki’s http://notlob.eu/urlsearch/?url=wikidata.org%2Fwiki%2FQ&partial=on


#6

Is it possible to get more than 1000 results?


#7

I’m only getting an XML page with less than 100 results. Is it possible to get more such results?


#8

No, it is not. :slight_smile:

Use https://musicbrainz.org/ws/2/url/?query=wikidata&offset=100 for second page, and so on and so forth.
Or offset=25&limit=25, offset=50&limit=25, etc. cf. Paging.
