In the documentation it is reported that the tagged parameter in the request URL should work like this:

tagged - a semicolon delimited list of tags, of which at least one will be present on all returned questions.

But if I use a list of tags, only questions that include ALL of the listed tags are returned. For example, if I make a request for this URL: https://api.stackexchange.com/2.3/search/advanced?pagesize=100&order=desc&sort=activity&accepted=True&views=50&site=stackoverflow&tagged=java;javascript;python

the results returned are only 60, the questions that include ALL of the 3 tags, java, javascript and python.

You're right; because the API doesn't have much priority for the developers, here is a workaround: use the q parameter and set it to [java] or [javascript] or [python].


This is the same syntax as you can use on the site's search page: https://stackoverflow.com/search?q=[java]+or+[javascript]+or+[python]
