Why can't I call search API without access token?

In the permid documentation it clearly says that access-token is optional like in entity lookup.

I got the update from the product team.

The access token is mandatory in the URL so the API document will be updated.

Yes, you are correct. An access token is required for the Entity Search API.

I will contact the product team to verify the document.

I think there is a miss match in documentation vs implementation. Document say you can call search API without access token. Please update that to avoid confusions.
