By default, this page will load with a list of all products available through the API database

If you click on any of the available products, you will then see a list of locations that the product is issued from/for.

If you click on a location, you can see the latest product issued, and the option to see other products that were issued in the past 168 hours (7 days).

The URL will also accept arguments, to get you to the products you want to see quicker.


You can also use an argument for which office the product originates:

At any time, clicking "Browse Dictionary" will display all words/phrases/acronyms sorted by letter. Clicking on any letter will show all of the words/phrases/acronyms starting with that letter. Note: There are no words starting with Q in our current dictionary.

While viewing any text product, you can click "Turn Dictionary On", which will change any matching words or phrases in the text product to a blue color. Using a mouse, you can hover over the blue words/phrases/acronyms and the definition will be displayed.

Clicking "Turn Dictionary Off" will remove any blue lettering from the text product.

To always enable the dictionary, you can add &glossary=on to the end of the URL, when other arguments are supplied.


One or more products may be viewed at the same time by providing the &product= argument in the URL.

Up to 8 products can be viewed at one time.

If requesting multiple products, separate them with a comma.


Parsing can be done by adding the &parse= argument to the URL.

If the parse argument can't be found in a product, a pop will let you know, and the whole product will be displayed.

If you have more than one product along with the parse argument, each product will attempt to be parsed.

If you have multiple products and multiple parse arguments, you will get a tab with each product parsed with each parse argument.
