As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

[SHARING] Search for string in Repository object code

Since David Briars mentioned a Summit 2016 presentation called 'Reporting from the WebFOCUS Repository' in the post Published status in WebFOCUS Repository, I thought I'd share code I created based on one of the programs from the presentation, 'Search for string in Repository object code'. I found the original report rudimentary so I created my own.

Incidentally, the original report, Search_for_string_in_code.fex, uncovered the fact that many versions of an object (fex, html and probably other object types) are saved in the Repository, but we can only get at the latest from the GUI tools.

The code is below. One can easily build an HTML page that has one text box control for the search string, and one control for the output type.

I'd like to include additional functionality:

  • Perform case-insensitive search - this one is difficult for some DBMS since the code is contained in a BLOB
  • Add Object Status (Published/Unpublished) to report - I have not yet figured out how to determine the status
  • Add file-type control and filter - this might be handy if the search is to be done on specific file types (fex, htm, sty, etc)

There's a flaw with this thing!

Due to the so-far-undocumented "feature" of multiple versions of a resource, if a resource at one time contained the search string, it will be included in the result set, even if it does not currently contain the string.

Looking into it...

I was told the multiple versions issue existed only for v8.0.08...

Hey guys

I've been using a 3rd party tool for searching for things in the repository and saw this post.

Take a look at this site - it's just a couple of guys I know who decided to make their own 3rd party tool for searching for content.

Take a look at their brochure - I use this just about every week for one thing or another.

TWIGI WebFOCUS Find Tool

I've installed in on 8105 and 8202. Easy import package and tweak to your edasprof to add a couple of global vars.

Be aware though - using this, you'll bypass the UOA security and read the repository directly. Thus if you decide to use this, make sure you are admin to keep your reports secure. It looks through the whole repository.

The guys who wrote it can help you install to try it out.

Good luck!
Toby Mills, CISSP

Hey Toby. Thanks for the link to the TWIGI-BI site/brochure.

It does look like a very nice product; and it is great to see 3rd party tools in the WebFOCUS arena.

No problem David - these guys are looking for more things to add that people like us could use.

Feel free to ask them to think about any extra stuff that we all could find useful.

I used it again today and will be doing some impact analysis for finding SQL server stored procs this week in an attempt to clean up our code and make it more uniform.

Glad you took a look!
Toby
