  content_type = NULL, units = NULL)

Arguments

name

A string or character vector of strings to search for in available dataset names. Defaults to NULL.

keywords

A string or character vector of strings to search for in available dataset keywords. Defaults to NULL.

content_type

A string or character vector of strings to search for in available dataset content types. content_type can include an optional ID for that content type. Defaults to NULL.
