Try this query http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/search?format=json&postalcode=45400&city=Fleury+les+aubrais&country=fr No result !

Now, without postalcode : http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/search?format=json&city=Fleury+les+aubrais&country=fr 1 Good result (with postal code returned witch is 45400 !!)

In fact, the query parameter "postalcode" don't work ;(

This seems to be a bug in Nominatim

Original answer:

Try "postcode" not "postalcode". That returns something for me that looks plausibly JSON!

The wiki also mentioned postalcode instead of postcode. I fixed it.

"postcode" is not a recognized parameter. The documentation speaks about "postalcode" only.

Replace "postcode" by anything else ('foo', 'bar', etc..) and you will see that the result will be the same !

I realy think there is a bug whith "postalcode" parameter. Is there a place tu submit bugs ?

There is - it's "trac" for the "nominatim" component. And yes, the second bug on that list at the time of writing is "Handle or ignore postal code", so it's already been logged.

@scai : you do a mistake. The good parameter is postalcode not postcode. Try this query : http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/search?format=json&postcode=31330&city=Merville&country=fr "postcode" is specified with value 31330 but an other result with postal code "59660" is returned

The "good" query (with "postalcode" parameter) don't work http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/search?format=json&postalcode=31330&city=Merville&country=fr

Thank you SomeoneElse for the link to the bug list ;)
