Sitecore query

Abstract

Introduction to Sitecore query that provides query string syntax to filter and retrieve items from the Sitecore content tree.

Sitecore query provides query string syntax that filters and retrieves items from the Sitecore content tree using a simplified version of XPath syntax. Developers use Sitecore query strings in .NET code and in the Source field of field definition items (it requires the “query:” prefix at the start of the Source field).

Note

Sitecore query is not scalable if you are using item buckets to store a large number of items in the content tree.
