See the guide: Building Graphs > Graph collections

Wrapper for Graph.get_collection() using the default graph.

See tf.Graph.get_collection for more details.


  • key: The key for the collection. For example, the GraphKeys class contains many standard names for collections.
  • scope: (Optional.) If supplied, the resulting list is filtered to include only items whose name attribute matches using re.match. Items without a name attribute are never returned if a scope is supplied and the choice or re.match means that a scope without special tokens filters by prefix.


The list of values in the collection with the given name, or an empty list if no value has been added to that collection. The list contains the values in the order under which they were collected.
