Hello Community,

I have question regarding the aris report and its guid number.

Is there any function that I can find the report's name and where it's stored with a given GUID number?

Thank you very much in advance!

Best regards!

have you taken a look at the API of the ScriptAdmin component?

I have not tried this, but from what I gather, this may be a solution to get the GUID of a report:

Use ScriptAdmin.exportFile to generate a ZipEntry object.

Ask the ZipEntry for the file name. As far as I know, all files of a report export contain the GUID in their name, such as <GUID>.script

I'm not sure, what this code snippet (found in the online help) will deliver:

 var scriptAdminComponent = Context.getComponent("ScriptAdmin")
 var aScriptComponentInfo = scriptAdminComponent.getScriptComponents()
 for(var i=0; i<aScriptComponentInfo.length; i++)
	var ID = aScriptComponentInfo[i].getComponentID()
	var sComponent = aScriptComponentInfo[i]. getComponentName()

ComponentName is supposed to be a technical name of the report. Maybe that is the GUID. If not, try my first suggestion.

Hello Ye,

you can find the right methods in a standard report, category administration "Output overview of reports, macros, and semantic checks". Unfortunately in our Aris 10.0.4 the source is locked/encrypted (why? too many secrets reduce the value of Aris). But in this post you can find an extended script version.

It iterates through all script categories and collects a list of script names, guids and further properties

var aScriptInfos = scriptAdmin.getScriptInfos(...) accesses the script properties,

then you can use scriptInfo.getID() for the guid

Regards, Martin
