  • gridfs: A mongoc_gridfs_t.

  • filter: A bson_t containing the query to execute.

  • opts: A bson_t query options, including sort order and which fields to return. Can be NULL.

  • error: An optional location for a bson_error_t or NULL.


Find the first GridFS file matching filter. If there is an error, NULL is returned and error is filled out; if there is no error but no matching file is found, NULL is returned and the error code and domain are 0.

See mongoc_collection_find_with_opts() for a description of the filter and opts parameters.

This function is considered a retryable read operation. Upon a transient error (a network error, errors due to replica set failover, etc.) the operation is safely retried once. If retryreads is false in the URI (see mongoc_uri_t) the retry behavior does not apply.


Errors are propagated via the error parameter.


Returns a newly allocated mongoc_gridfs_file_t if successful. You must free the resulting file with mongoc_gridfs_file_destroy() when no longer in use.
