I am using spacemacs, currently with helm, but have used it with ivy as
well and I have the following setup for my org-refile, which I find
works well for my purposes.
org-refile-targets (quote ((nil :maxlevel . 3)
(org-agenda-files :maxlevel . 3)))
which allows me to type some of the 'path' name (e.g. outline heading or
org file name) and it shows me appropriate candidates.
I don't know if there is some spacemacs helm/ivy setup which plays a
part here - it just works, so I've not looked any further.
org version reports 9.4.4
