How do I search for items/files which were modified after a given date


#1

I currently feed data from multiple systems into Girder automatically- I need to be able to search for files inserted / modified after a specified date so that I can feed the data out to another system(s).

Looking through the API docs I don’t see a public method for performing this task. I was thinking that I would have to do something with metadata but it doesn’t seem like I can do non-equal searches.

Any ideas?

Hi Steven,

There is currently not any core functionality that will do this out of the box, but it would be pretty straightforward and easy to implement a new endpoint in a plugin that would provide this capability. That plugin could just add a database index for the search you need to perform, and a REST endpoint to do the lookup.
