WP REST API – GET with 2 or more variables

I was searching the WP REST Documentation and have been googling around but I haven’t seen some examples using GET method with multiple variable so I just played around with the code and URL and way able to get integer values when using this code in your custom plugin or functions.php:

add_action( 'rest_api_init', function () {
'testapi/v1', '/getvars/(?P<var1>\d+)/(?P<var2>\d+)', array(
'methods' => 'GET',
'callback' => 'wp_restapi_getvars',
function wp_restapi_getvars( $data ) {
echo 'This is var1:' . $data['var1'] . '<br>';
echo 'This is var2:' . $data['var2'] . '<br>';

And when you try this example URL :


This will give you an output of:

This is var1:123

This is var2:456

I think I need to dig and explore more to expand its usage especially on other data types other than integers
