19 August 2015
  • new

    APIAPI now supports querying against a relationship using standard conjunctions.

    For scalar relationships.

    For example, to find notes by a specific author when only name is known:

    'select id from Note '
    'where author has (first_name is "Jane" and last_name is "Doe")'
    
    any

    For collection relationships.

    For example, to find all projects that have at least one metadata instance that has key=some_key and value=some_value the query would be:

    'select id from Project '
    'where metadata any (key=some_key and value=some_value)'
    

    This also enables querying for empty relationship collections:

    'select id from User where not timelogs any ()'
