Does DNG support a way to query for all descendant requirements under a specified folder?

Brandon White (1311) | asked Jul 07 '16, 7:10 p.m.
Based on this article, I understand that it's possible in Doors Next Generation (version >= 4.0) to retrieve resources under a parent folder.  Is it possible to retrieve all resources from the parent folder or any of its subfolders (e.g. recursive search over a folder hierarchy)?

As the same article suggested, it is possible to traverse a project structure from the client-side:

a. Fetching resources from a given parent folder
b. Iterate over each resource
c. If a resource is also a folder, perform step (a) with this subfolder.

The problem with this approach is that it requires a REST request per folder/subfolder which doesn't scale particularly well for an arbitrary folder hierarchy. It would be nice if there was server-side support for this.
