    IDX Broker offers loads of url variables for the results pages, but there is virtually no documentation for this. We would love to see something get started in the KnowledgeBase for us and clients to reference.

    The best option for this would be an API call as every MLS is different and it can change.

    MLS fields API call: http://middleware.idxbroker.com/docs/api/methods/index.html#api-MLS-getSearchfields

    MLS field values API call: http://middleware.idxbroker.com/docs/api/methods/index.html#api-MLS-getSearchfieldvalues

    Ugh. Once in a while we have the problem where clients ask if XYZ field/data is available. Its kinda annoying that we need to call the api to find that out, and its virtually impossible to answer if the person asking is not yet a client. Giving the response …

    “IDX Broker may support that field/data, but it various based on your MLS Provider, we will need to get back to you.”

    … is not the ideal answer. IDX Broker does have a page for all the MLS they support, maybe they can provide this data on those pages? Without another client using the same board it would be impossible for us to lookup that information.

    We had another request for a JSON list of all the available MLS boards. Maybe this can be provided thru the API, along with this list, and the other data they display on those pages:
