I simply want to list all objects (queries, charts, reports) that reference my dashboards... Anyone!?
The documentation is wrong for this command. The --showReferences option will not work. You also can't see the References column for Dashboards in the GUI.
The only way I've found to get a list of the queries, reports, and charts used in a dashboard is to look at the Layout. You can look through this in the GUI, but I find it easier to search the xml directly.
You can get the XML output for the dashboard layout with this command:
im viewdashboard --showlayout [dashboard name]
Within the XML, search for QueryLink, ReportLink and Chart. You may also find references in a URLLink.
<Chart filtered="True" name="Open Items - Team"/> <QueryLink filtered="True" name="My Open Items"/> <URLLink href="http://[server]:[port]/im/ci.rundashboardview?mks.webapp=default&selection=__id1864" text="Global ILM Dashboard" textStyle="Hyperlink"/> <ReportLink filtered="True" inline="True" name="My Open Items"/>
I appreciate the reply, awalsh. Still, can't help but hope that the CLI commands that indicate that references can be outputted (per the documentation) will one day work.
