I'm using the SharePoint Query Tool to query for documents in a document library on SharePoint Online. What Path:... should I be using.

The path to the library in Document Library Settings is: https://Company.sharepoint.com/subsite/Shared%20Documents/Forms/AllItems.aspx

I've tried https://Company.sharepoint.com/subsite/Shared%20Documents/*

Ultimately I need to query for all documents in that library.

    can you post your code for the query? The ../subsite/Share%20Documents is the right path

  • Please try "../subsite/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('[Doc Library Name]')/items". Commented Aug 6, 2018 at 13:14
  • As it turns out, I was also filtering on FileType:pdf* which clearly conflicted with * in the Path: property. Commented Aug 6, 2018 at 17:07

If you are talking about the Connection URL, you can use any valid URL for the search API. https://tenant.sharepoint.com or https://tenant.sharepoint.com/search. Then to only hit the doc library in question you can use the path Managed Property. path:https://tenant.sharepoint.com/subsite/*.
