Associated .srx file properties in metadata

Hi All,

I would like to export the 'external content' details from metadata for web reports, dashboard objects etc (e.g. the physical .srx filename/location). The information is available on the report properties -> contents tab (content associated with item) within SMC.

I've exported as much information as I can get hold of using PROC METADATA (below), yet I cannot find this information.

 

<GetMetadataObjects>

<Reposid>$METAREPOSITORY</Reposid>

<Type>Transformation</Type>

<Objects/>

<NS>SAS</NS>

<Flags>257</Flags>

<Options>

<XMLSelect search="*[@PublicType=''Report'']" />

<Templates>

</Templates>

</Options>

</GetMetadataObjects>

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Raas

Can you be more specific about what you are referrng to when you say "external content"?

No Problem.

Each Web Report Studio report has a metadata component and associated physical files. A basic web report will just have a physical .srx file stored in WebDAV or the Content Server. When viewing the properties of the metadata report definition in SMC, the 'Content' tab displays the associated file(s).

I would like to query return this information directly from Metadata, the above XML gives me lots of information for all reports but nothing on the physical files.
