How do I search for data in a feeds/API?

I have an app that is displaying content using a repeating group that is powered by an MRSS feed:

I’ve added a search bar at the top of the page so the user can search for content by the title. However, reading through the documentation and watching videos, it looks like the search bar only applies to searching in the database.

Is there a workaround or something that I’m missing?

Some ideas …

  • Use an input control instead of a search control.
  • Possibly pass the search parameter to the API that retrieves the content.
  • Have the feed filtered by the search parameter before being displayed as a source by the repeating group.

This method worked best for me. I created an input element instead and then I set the repeating group to filter by the value in the search input.
