queryContacts( )

Creates a query to retrieve a list of contacts.

The queryContacts() function builds a query to retrieve a list of contacts and returns a ContactsQueryBuilder object.

The returned object contains the query definition, which is typically used to run the query using the find() function.

You can refine the query by chaining ContactsQueryBuilder functions onto the query. ContactsQueryBuilder functions enable you to sort, filter, and control the results queryContacts() returns.

queryContacts() runs with these ContactsQueryBuilder defaults, which you can override:

The functions that are chained to queryContacts() are applied in the order they are called. For example, if you apply ascending('info.company') and then descending('info.name.last'), the results are sorted first by the company name, and then, if there are multiple results with the same company, the items are sorted by last name.

Note: Only visitors with Manage Contacts permissions can query contacts. You can override the permissions by setting the suppressAuth option to true in the find() function.

For property support for filters and sorting, see Query contacts: Supported filters, sorting, and search.
