Query Channels

Query Channels

The getChannels function is a powerful function that allows you to search for and retrieve channels that match specific criteria. With this function, you can quickly and easily find the channels you need.

The function accepts several parameters that allow you to customize your search. The keyword parameter is a string that specifies the search query, allowing you to search for channels based on their displayName.

Once you have made your query, the function returns a Live Collection of channels that match your query criteria. You can use this collection to display the search results in your app, or to further filter the results as needed.

You can query channels with the following criteria:

  • keyword: Specify keyword that should be in channel displayName

  • includeDeleted : Specify whether to search for channels that has been closed. Possible values are:

    • null (default) - Show both channel is active and closed.

    • false - Search for channels that is still open

  • tags : Search for channels with the specific tags. If more than 1 tags are specified in the query, system will search for channels that contain any of those tags.

  • excludeTags : Search for channels without the specific tags. If more than 1 tags are specified in the query, system will search for channels that does not contain any one of those tags.

  • filter : Membership status of the user. Possible values are:

    • all (default) - Search for channels

    • member - Search for channels that the user is a member of

    • notMember - Search for channels that the user is not a member of

    • flagged - Search for channels that the user flagged

  • types : type of channel to search for - conversation , broadcast , live or community

  • userId : Search for channels that is created by a given User ID

If you use a UITableView or UICollectionView to display channel list data, the ideal location to reload table data is directly in the observe block of the live collection that you are displaying.
