I'm looking for a way to retrieve all files modified after a given time on SharePoint.

I've tried accessing the endpoints _api/web/lists/getbytitle (Query 1), which only seems to return folders and _api/web/GetFolderByServerRelativeUrl (Query 2), which only returns files in a given folder.

Is there a way to search all files changed after a certain date in a document library?

This is the documentation I'm using: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/sp-add-ins/working-with-folders-and-files-with-rest

Query 1:

https://bamgroup.sharepoint.com/sites/036222/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('Project%20Files')/items?$filter= Modified gt '2022-09-30T12:56:11'

Query 2:

https://bamgroup.sharepoint.com/sites/036222/_api/web/GetFolderByServerRelativeUrl('Project%20Files')/files?$filter= Modified gt '2022-09-30T12:56:11'

Try using this SharePoint REST API endpoint:

https://bamgroup.sharepoint.com/sites/036222/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('Project Files')/items?$filter=Modified gt datetime'2022-09-30T12:56:11.000Z'
