Metadata queries

Metadata queries

A metadata query provides a way to find files and folders by searching for the metadata attached to them.

For example, to find the all files for an invoice with a certain ID, the query would look for all files and folders with the invoiceData template attached to it and a value of id = :id, where :id would be the value of the invoice.


The metadata query API can be used by applications that have been authenticated using traditional OAuth 2.0 or JWT.
