    Hi Ryan,

    I looked in to the latest documentation, the List files is still the same.

    When AWS S3 bucket named "XYZ" have objects like below (they are folders)

    ABC (having 1000 files)

    DEF (having 2000 files)

    XYZ (having 2000 files)

    LST (having 2000 files)

    But I am only looking to list only XYZ object(folder) files, but it will give all the object files. that is where my request.

    I hope you got my request otherwise let me know we can discuss

    Hello, thank you for your interest in this enhancement. Have you had the oppuruntity to test this with We have added a few parameters, as well as added some documentation around the "get" operation , in which you can use the full path to the file, including the directory.

    We would like to discuss this further if you have additional questions and requirements.

    This requirement is also one facing our implementation to select specific files for a BP to GET from an S3 bucket. Without this functionality there is only ability to get certain file extensions but not certain file patterns or folders, preventing usage and requiring separate AWS CLI commands to be performed.

    The current implementation will deliver all keys in a bucket in process data which can cause problems.

    The adapter should at least implement the following ListObjectsV2Request parameters:

    • withPrefix(String prefix)

    • withDelimiter(String delimiter)

    to filter the result. Nice to have would be an additional filter by glob/regex.
