    Have you had any luck with this? I am trying to do something similiar - get the names of objects, classes and subclasses when given a Universe Name. I don't care if it is a JSP or a .NET program but my understanding is that I would still need a query (runnable in QueryBuilder) first that can fetch Universe Metadata in BOXI.

    • Does anyone know which SDK should be used to retrieve the metadata information(objects,formula,prompt,etc) from a WEBI report. Thanks in advance.

      REBean will provide the greatest reach for obtaining this type of information. WSSDK too, but I believe it leaves out a few things, like cell expressions and such (I think).

    As Ted mentioned, your other option is to use the Universe COM SDK. I have attached a VB6 sample that lists a lot of the properties in the Universe. If you absolutely have to use .NET - you could use COM interop to run the code - but if you do that then you need to make sure you do proper error trapping.
