Hey H/H,

I don't know anything about reports -- can you point me at some resources and help me out with this question? I couldn't find anything in the KB or by googling...

How do I create a report of what groups have access to each folder in a site, recursively

Thanks a bunch,

    Hi Mark,

    I can think of two, maybe three, different ways to do this:

    1. I built a PHP web service code library. I can use this library, specially AssetTree::traverse, to visit a site and get the access information. The traverse method is recursive.

    2. Lately, I have developed a way to use Velocity to query the Cascade database directly. Since any data can be pulled out from the database, I just need to figure out which tables contain the information I want. I must build Java classes to do this.

    3. Similar to the second way, I can write a program, using PHP or Java, to query the database directly.

    For more information:

    1. AssetTree

    2. AccessRightsInformation

    3. Generating Reports

    4. Java Programming in Velocity

    Thanks a bunch, Wing -- I used your excellent code library to produce the report I needed.
