Is there metadata stored for mdata like last modified time of the shell or item?

Basically the title. Sometimes I need to order the items of an mdata based on their timestamp. Currently I provide it in the data itself but I was wondering if the vaults keep such info an if it can be reached somehow?

Hey @ogrebgr,

Unfortunately, we do not make use of timestamps in metadata for mdata. In fact, SAFE Network Fundamentals #18 states that the network never makes use of time as a network tool.

All that is available for ordering in Mutable data are the version for the shell and the version for entries in the data.

Hope this helps! :slight_smile:
