How to Run YQL Statements

You can run YQL statements in the following ways:

  • YQL Console: In your browser with the YQL Console.
  • SELECT statements using HTTP GET: A Web application can use an HTTP GET request when running SELECT statements, specifying the YQL statement as a query parameter of the Web Service URL.
  • INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE statements using HTTP POST, PUT, or DELETE: A Web application can similarly use an HTTP GET, PUT, or DELETE for INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE statements. The only exception is when you specify a JSONP callback, in which case you can use an HTTP GET request and specify a callback query parameter on the GET URI.
