Hello dear wikidata list participants,
I use a MediaWiki API <https://www.wikidata.org/w/api.php> to query for
Wikidata items. I faced a problem when using 'wbsearchentities' action.
I have a query string 'Blue Angel' and I need to find the entities that
have a title containing this query string, in particular entity with
property id equal to 'Q158047'. But to find it I have to search for
'*The* Blue Angel'. I tried to increase the limit of maximal number
results up to 50, but still entity Q158047 does not appear in the
Is there a way to have partial matches?

wbsearchentities is prefix-only for performance reasons and there is no way
around it. Try to use MediaWikis regular search API.
