DocumentListComponent [Where] syntax?

So the document list component https://www.alfresco.com/abn/adf/docs/content-services/components/document-list.component/, have a [where] property which is able to filter the data in the list.

When I try the example:
[where]="'(isFolder=true)'"

it works perfectly.

My question is regarding the syntax, how do I filter the data by a property on the nodes.
I want to do something like:
[where]="'(properties['myprop']='some value')'"

According to the docs for the documentlistcomponent pointing to the node docs: https://github.com/Alfresco/alfresco-js-api/blob/development/src/api/content-rest-api/docs/Node.md it should be possible. 

I have also looked into the API explorer https://api-explorer.alfresco.com/api-explorer/#!/nodes/listNodeChildren but can't figure out the syntax.

Thanks in advance.

Re: DocumentListComponent [Where] syntax?

I’m fairly certain that the getChildren REST API does not support properties in the where parameter, but I could be wrong. I am checking on this for you.

I am not quite sure what you are trying to acheive, but I suggest you look into leveraging the Search REST API would give the level of control you looking for. If you need to start filtering by complex queries - the Search API is the way to go.
