    1. Enter getRecordsStartingAtKey in the Name textbox.

    2. Enter {} JSON in the msg.payload textbox.

    3. Click ... to open the JSON editor.

    4. Paste the following JSON in the JSON editor textbox:

          "api": "db",
          "authToken": "replaceWithRealToken",
          "action": "getRecordsStartingAtKey",
          "params": {
              "databaseName": "ctreeSQL",
              "tableName": "athlete",
              "indexFilter": {
                  "indexName": "ranking",
                  "operator": ">=",
                  "indexFields": [
                          "fieldName": "ranking",
                          "value": 3
              "reverseOrder": false
    5. Click Done to close the JSON editor.

  4. Click Deploy to configure the inject node to send a JSON object to the FairCom Edge server instructing it to return records where "ranking" is equal to or greater than three.

  5. Click the corresponding createIndex node button to send the request.

  6. Observe the results in the debug tab.


    "errorCode" with a value of 0 indicates success. "errorCode" with a non-zero value indicates a failure, see Errors and contact FairCom with any questions.
