Return Value

Key

Description

Return value

list / elements=list

A one-element list that contains a list of requested fields or JSON objects of matches.

If you use query, you get a list of lists. If you use lookup without wantlist=true, this always gets reduced to a list of field values or JSON objects.

Returned: success

Hint

Configuration entries for each entry type have a low to high priority order. For example, a variable that is lower in the list will override a variable that is higher up.
