Before you begin this section, you should have completed the Intermediate Querying Lesson or have a good understanding of basic Fluree queries. Completion of the Flakes and Blocks Lesson or a good understanding of flakes is also helpful. In addition, you should know about the subject-predicate-object model.

Querying Blocks#

If we want to see all of the flakes that belong to a particular block, you can use a block number, an ISO-8601 formatted string or an ISO-8601 formatted duration.

Using block number:

{  "block": 4}

Using ISO-8601 formatted wall clock time:

{  "block": "2017-11-14T20:59:36.097Z"}

Using ISO-8601 formatted duration (as of 1 hour ago):

{  "block": "PT1H"}
