    Hi Team,

    For retrieving bib records with GET /almaws/v1/bibs, the document says all parameters are optional.
    However, when I try it out the error messages says that:
    “errorCode”: “401873”,
    “errorMessage”: “Request failed: Parameter missing. Try one of the following: mms_id, holdings_id, ie_id, representation_id, nz_mms_id.”,
    “trackingId”: “E01-2711041059-N5JFD-AWAE2031544590”

    Here is the request:
    curl -X GET “” -H “accept: application/json”

    Please advise.
    Thank you.

    Hi Ling,
    The GET /almaws/v1/bibs API is intended for retrieving list of BIB records based on ids. Therefore at least one parameter should be used.
    In order to get BIB records in general, the SRU should be used. See documentation:
