Nocode way to connect search form to query params?

I have a search form with three fields. I think I should be using a link button to send search terms through query params. Then consume query params in my REST API to display search results.

I can’t figure out how/if I can capture the values of the search in a nocode way. Do I have to listen to the values through jQuery?

I don’t think I want to use the form function in site settings.

If you use normal form, you can set form action (GET) to url for example /test

Form data will be sent in a way /test?field=value
Then using variables, $query->get(‘field’) you can get values.

Let me know if this works, or if something is not right, I’ll fix/improve quickly.
