Query specification

Hi guys,

I am using the Restful SDK to get the dataproviders query specification (http://server:6405/biprws/raylight/v1/documents/{ID}/dataproviders/DP0/specification). The result XML is something like this:

<queryspec:QuerySpec xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:parameter="" xmlns:queryspec="" dataProviderId="DP0">



<queriesTree xsi:type="queryspec:QueryOperatorNode" queryOperator="Union">

<children xsi:type="queryspec:QueryDataNode">

<bOQuery name="Query" identifier="_DQwTUS-BEeWGVJVUo9we">

<resultObjects identifier="DS0.DO4fc" name="asdasdad"/>


<conditionTree xsi:type="queryspec:ConditionOperatorNode" logicalOperator="And">







I have to parse this XML to identify all the universe objects used by the document (result objects and conditions too). Where can I find the formal schema/specification/documentation for this XML?

Are there any good examples available, to parse this XML?

    Just be careful because all result objects may not be used in the document.

    I think there is no particular documentation of the query specification. The format is the same used by IDT (Information Design Tool).

    Best regards,

    • Ok, I understand the purpose of your application and I agree with your checks! 😊

      About the query specification (QS) format, we have a action item in our backlog to add also the support of the QS format (XML/JSON) used in SL RESTful API. But I can't say when it will be available... :-/
