20.13 DBFS Content API Directory Navigation and Search

Clients of the DBFS Content API can list or search the contents of directory path names, with optional modes.

Optional Modes:

  • searching recursively in sub-directories

  • seeing soft-deleted items

  • using flashback asof a provided timestamp

  • filtering items in and out within the store based on list or search predicates.

The DBFS Content API currently only returns list items; clients explicitly use one of the getPath() methods to access the properties or content associated with an item, as appropriate.
