[API-users] Getting server error 500 while trying to post a download request

Hi Priyank

The TAXON_KEY currently only supports the equals predicate.  We will look to support an array of values in the future.

Please let me know if that solves your problem.

>> It says that search parameter TAXON_KEY is not mapped, but I see TAXON_KEY being used in the examples at http://www.gbif.org/developer/occurrence#predicates.
