In attempting to find how a participating organization has been classified by other publishers, I just realized that the data store appears to only allow for searching on IATI publishers in the participating organization field. However the organization I'm looking for and many other participating organizations are not IATI publishers.
I can also see in d-portal that I can search on the organization name in the free-text search bar and find that the organization is listed in many IATI files but I don't see a way to get a dump from d-portal that can help me compare the org type across all those publishers.
In this particular instance I'm looking to see how GIZ is classified by other publishers. (government, public private partnership, CSO) But I have others that I need to look up so I need a method to do this repetitively for other organizations.
1) Are there any data users out there with any advice on how to get to this data without going one-by-one into each activity spit out by D-Portal?
2) Are there any publishers out there that are willing to tell me how you have classified GIZ in your files?
3) Can someone from the IATI technical team explain why the data store search is restricted to publishers and is there is another way to get out all participating organizations regardless of publisher status? If there is no solutions I will advocate for a user case here.
