Get all the Fields (Integration names) within an Object

How to get all the integration names of the fields available in an Object? Is there an easy way to do this?

Hi Iram,

The easiest way is to copy the contents of Fields section in the target object definition and then paste it to excel. Since the columns and rows are preserved, then it will display all the integration name in one column as seen in Rollbase.

Otherwise, if you want to use a programmatic way you can use getObjectDef metadata API. It retrieves the full description of an object definition as an XML document. See Object XML Definition for a description of the DataObjectDef XML node: http://documentation.progress.com/output/Rollbase/rb/object-xml-definition.html

This API can be called via AJAX, REST or SOAP.

Godfrey

Yes I wanted to get it done programmatically and ended up using getObjectDef REST API method.
