searching flows for system property

I need to search my flows for a specific system property.  The system property is referenced within scriptlet code in many flows.  Is there a way to do this that can find all occurrences?


I don't see any way to really do this.

Re: searching flows for system property

Hi Brian,


Unfortunately there is no easy way to do this. You can find it within the XML of a flow by looking through it in the Repository folder.


I have written a flow which scans all XML files in the repository and reports the usage of all System Properties (and filters, accounts, etc.) in pretty much every scenario (including within scriptlets). Unfortunately OO eventually crashes with a memory error trying to read through all the files, however you could modify it to target a few specific files.


I have now moved my attention to a standalone .NET application which is going to do the same thing, however it is not finished yet.


Let me know if you would like a copy of the flow as is (built in OO 7.51.03, I have not imported it into OO 9.x) or if you would like to know when the standalone app is finished.
