Vehicles download - make parameter ignored

Closed

Testing the actor and it seems make parameter is ignored, my settings are :

{ "extendItem": true, "isC2CListingOnly": false, "lat": "37.984600", "lng": "-122.571100", "local": false, "make": "Ford", ..

But in the output are all sorts of makes.

Okay, I see. Actually, for your particular input for "make" to work you will need to use the "category" setting as below.

{ "category": "vehicles", "extendItem": true, "isC2CListingOnly": false, "lat": "37.984600", "lng": "-122.571100", "local": false, "make": "Ford", "maxConcurrency": 5, "maxPage": 1, "maxRequestsPerMinute": 200, "proxy": { "useApifyProxy": true, "apifyProxyGroups": [ "RESIDENTIAL" ], "apifyProxyCountry": "US" }, "radius": "60", "sortBy": "creation_time_ascend" }

Setting "startUrls" will ignore all settings starting from the category option.

Or

In case you want to use startUrls, then your url must have "vehicle type" and make set, something like below.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/vehicles/?topLevelVehicleType=car_truck&make=280909549507187

In short the scraper works in 2 modes

  1. URL mode - in this mode all settings starting from "category" will be ignored as we try to pick extract those settings(make, model etc) from the startUrls.

  2. Fine grain mode - in this mode, you need not provide startUrls but can build your query using the options starting form "category" options.

Please note the below fields are common in both the modes.

a. Proxy configuration b. Latitude c. Longitude d. Radius e. Max Page Limit f. Show price in local currency g. Get item extended data

Oh, I see, thanks for the clarification. With that settings it looks perfect.
