Address Autofill

Public beta for Mapbox Search JS

Mapbox Search JS is in public beta. During the public beta phase, frameworks may be subject to potential changes as they stabilize.


A AddressAutofillCore object is an application's main entrypoint to the Mapbox Address Autofill API. The Mapbox Address Autofill API is an API similar to SearchBoxCore, but targeted towards address autocomplete.

Only address types are returned by the API.

AddressAutofillCore is focused on the two-step, interactive search experience. These steps are:

  1. AddressAutofillCore#suggest: The user enters a search term, and a list of suggested results is returned with address data.
  2. AddressAutofillCore#retrieve: The user selects a result from the list of suggested results, and the corresponding geographic coordinates are returned.

A Mapbox access token is required to use AddressAutofillCore, and other options may be specified either in the constructor or in the AddressAutofillCore#suggest call.

new AddressAutofillCore(options: AddressAutofillOptions?)

An AddressAutofillSuggestion object represents a suggestion result from the Mapbox Address Autofill API.

Suggestion objects are "part one" of the two-step interactive autofill experience. Suggestion objects do not include geographic coordinates.

To get the coordinates of the result, use AddressAutofillCore#retrieve.

For tracking purposes, it is useful for any follow-up requests based on this suggestion to include same SessionToken as the original request.


const autofill = new AddressAutofillCore({ accessToken: '' });

const sessionToken = new SessionToken();
const result = await search.autofill('Washington D.C.', { sessionToken });
if (result.suggestions.length === 0) return;

const suggestion = result.suggestions[0];
const { features } = await autofill.retrieve(suggestion, { sessionToken });
