You can use the following keywords in your ZenQL queries.

    sys.contentTypeId = plant and sys.isPublished = true

  • Find all entries that are plants or pots.
    sys.contentTypeId = plant or sys.contentTypeId = pot


Used to ensure that the search condition is not true.

  • Find all entries that are not plants.
    not sys.contentTypeId = plant alternatively sys.contentTypeId != plant
