Search - Get Search Polygon

Get Polygon

Applies to: see pricing tiers.

The Get Polygon service allows you to request the geometry data such as a city or country outline for a set of entities, previously retrieved from an Online Search request in GeoJSON format. The geometry ID is returned in the sourceGeometry object under "geometry" and "id" in either a Search Address or Search Fuzzy call.

Please note that any geometry ID retrieved from an Online Search endpoint has a limited lifetime. The client should not store geometry IDs in persistent storage for later referral, as the stability of these identifiers is not guaranteed for a long period of time. It is expected that a request to the Polygon method is made within a few minutes of the request to the Online Search method that provided the ID. The service allows for batch requests up to 20 identifiers.

Request Header

Name Required Type Description
x-ms-client-id

Security

AADToken

These are the Azure Active Directory OAuth2 Flows. When paired with Azure role-based access control it can be used to control access to Azure Maps REST APIs. Azure role-based access controls are used to designate access to one or more Azure Maps resource account or sub-resources. Any user, group, or service principal can be granted access via a built-in role or a custom role composed of one or more permissions to Azure Maps REST APIs.

To implement scenarios, we recommend viewing authentication concepts. In summary, this security definition provides a solution for modeling application(s) via objects capable of access control on specific APIs and scopes.

Notes

  • This security definition requires the use of the x-ms-client-id header to indicate which Azure Maps resource the application is requesting access to. This can be acquired from the Maps management API.

The Authorization URL is specific to the Azure public cloud instance. Sovereign clouds have unique Authorization URLs and Azure Active directory configurations. * The Azure role-based access control is configured from the Azure management plane via Azure portal, PowerShell, CLI, Azure SDKs, or REST APIs. * Usage of the Azure Maps Web SDK allows for configuration based setup of an application for multiple use cases.

  • Currently, Azure Active Directory v1.0 or v2.0 supports Work, School, and Guests but does not support Personal accounts.

Scopes

Name Description
https://atlas.microsoft.com/.default https://atlas.microsoft.com/.default

subscription-key

This is a shared key that is provisioned when you Create an Azure Maps account in the Azure portal or using PowerShell, CLI, Azure SDKs, or REST API.

With this key, any application can access all REST API. In other words, this key can be used as a master key in the account that they are issued in.

For publicly exposed applications, our recommendation is to use the confidential client applications approach to access Azure Maps REST APIs so your key can be securely stored.

Type: apiKey
In: query

SAS Token

This is a shared access signature token is created from the List SAS operation on the Azure Maps resource through the Azure management plane via Azure portal, PowerShell, CLI, Azure SDKs, or REST APIs.

With this token, any application is authorized to access with Azure role-based access controls and fine-grain control to the expiration, rate, and region(s) of use for the particular token. In other words, the SAS Token can be used to allow applications to control access in a more secured way than the shared key.

For publicly exposed applications, our recommendation is to configure a specific list of allowed origins on the Map account resource to limit rendering abuse and regularly renew the SAS Token.
