Mark Logic Command: direxists

Detects if a directory exists on a Mark Logic server


direxists [-c uri|-connect uri] directory


Checks to see if a directory (uri) exists on a MarkLogic server. Directory URI's must end in slash (/)

-c,-connect uriUse the connection string instead of $MLCONNECT
directory uri of the direct to check


Assuming the prefix "ml" is imported as the marklogic module, tests to see if the directory /test/ exists

if ml:direxists /test/ ; then 
	echo /test/ exists
	echo /test/ doesnt exist

Example, safely delete /test/ only if it exists

ml:direxists /test/ && ml:deldir /test/

To check if a document (file) exists use exists


direxists is implemented as an xsh script which simply calls xdmp:document-properties. The source of the script is

# return true if diretory exists else return false
_opts=$<(xgetopts -a -p "c=connect:" -ps -- "$@")
shift $?

:query $_opts -b -q <{{
declare variable $uri external ;  
}}> -v uri $1
