"listInputs"

The "listInputs" action obtains a list of names of previously created inputs.

Things to know

  • You can return a filtered list by specifying a partial name in the "partialName" property.

  • You can include additional items in the list by searching for words contained in the item's metadata.

  • To get detailed information about specific inputs, use "describeInputs".
