Actions for Obsidian › Actions › List All Files

Returns a list of all files (notes, media files, etc.) in a vault, as file paths, sorted alphabetically.



The vault to work in.

Type: Vault reference

Return Value

Text (list)


Most of the time you would use this action to get a list of all your file paths, then loop over the results list using the built-in “Repeat With” block and filter them with whatever you need. The loop variable Repeat Item  will contain a single file path.

If you want to filter the list, I recommend using the “Filter List” action from Sindre Sorhus’s excellent Actions app (no relation) or a built-in “Repeat With” loop with a contained “If” action.
