Is there a Microsoft Graph API to filter and search messages in the same API?

I am looking at a use case where a single API helps with filtering and searching simultaneously.

E.g. Search all unread emails with subject "Blah".

When I use $search and $filter in the list messages API, I get the following error:

{'error': {'code': 'SearchWithFilter','message': "The query parameter '$filter' is not supported with '$search'."}}

    Hi @Kognitos

    The /messages endpoint does not yet support the combination of $filter and $search. For this case, you only need to use the $filter query parameter to filter:$filter=isRead eq false and subject eq 'Blah'

    Hope this helps.
