<MediaContainer size="1" allowSync="0" identifier="com.plexapp.plugins.library" mediaTagPrefix="/system/bundle/media/flags/" mediaTagVersion="1623861150" title1="Plex Library">
<Directory allowSync="1" art="/:/resources/artist-fanart.jpg" composite="/library/sections/1/composite/1624965432" filters="1" refreshing="0" thumb="/:/resources/artist.png" key="1" type="artist" title="Music" agent="" scanner="Plex Music" language="en" uuid="2318ddce-c8a3-4f52-b5c9-231fd91d2f54" updatedAt="1624965416" createdAt="1624919369" scannedAt="1624965432" content="1" directory="1" contentChangedAt="31077" hidden="0">
<Location id="1" path="/volume1/Plex-Music-m4a"/>

Each library has a key that identifies it within the database. For example, the “Music” library above:

 key="1" type="artist" title="Music" 

…indicates that the key = 1, the type = artist and the title = Music

the path is also listed as

<Location id="1" path="/volume1/Plex-Music-m4a"/>
