   $plan as map:map,
   $condition as item()
) as map:map


This method restricts the row set to rows matched by the boolean expression. Use boolean composers such as op:and and op:or to combine multiple expressions.

A constraining document query returns only the rows from the matched source documents. If the constraining document query is a node instead of a cts:query object, the implementation calls the cts:query parser on the node. The constraining document query applies to all upstream accessors. A constraining sem:store returns only the triples from the specified store (potentially expanded by inference using a ruleset). A constraining sem:store applies to all upstream triples accessors.

$plan The Optic Plan. You can either use the XQuery => chaining operator or specify the variable that captures the return value from the previous operation.
$condition This can be a boolean expression, a cts:query to qualify the source documents that produced the rows set, or (where part of the row set was produced by the op:from-triples accessor) a sem:store to restrict or expand the triples that produce the row set.
