Hi, Bhushan:

It sounds like it would meet your requirements to create a range index on NAME and use the /v1/values endpoint to retrieve the values from the index:


Hoping that helps,

Subject: [MarkLogic Dev General] USing REST api to retrieve value for an element

Hello Team,

We are using MarkLogic 8.0 using REST API.

We have around 200,000 documents inside a collection. Each document has the following structure


One Requirement:

1)      Fetch value for an element for all the documents inside a collection.

I have tried below solution using Xquery:



    let $a := collection("Equity")//*

    for $name in distinct-values($a/NAME)



        <name>{ $name }</name>




But the above Xquery takes a long time.

Is there any way where we can solve the above requirements using REST API.

Thanks in advance.
