XML exports and revisions

Hi All,

We are running Content Manager 9.2 and when using the right click Send to > XML Export option for data exports we are enountering problems with file sizes as the xml export is capturing all of the revisions attached to the record - up to 100 revisions.  Is there any way to remove the revisions on the xml export?  We know that you can remove or extract revisions on individual records but we are looking at some 700 records so this is too cumbersome.  

Thanks,

Kaye

Hi Kaye,

If you set the item level to 0 it doesn't extract revisions.

Hope this helps.

Hi Dave,

Yes - setting the item depth to 0 does remove the previous revisions but unfortunately the related records metadata is removed too, which we need to have!

I believe though that we have a work around where we can manipulate the related records system code so that it generates the related instrument links by matching the metadata in the document content with the titles instead of relying on the CM metadata.  This means that we will now be able to set the depth to 0 in order to remove the revisions.

We are still to try this - but are hopeful it will work.

Thanks,

Kaye
