I am trying to get counts of conrefs, variables, images and topics included a baseline to present some metrics about the amount of reuse (some factors are ignored). My approach is to parse the fields:
For each baseline, I get the logical id and version of each map or topic. The DocumentObj.RetrieveLanguageMetadata endpoint only allows you to specify 1 version. So, I make multiple calls per baseline for each version included in the baseline. This is very slow since I have to do this for thousands of baselines.
Do you know of a faster way to gather this information?
Hi Kendall - if you haven't already, please vote for this idea: https://community.sdl.com/ideas/sdl-tridion-dx-ideas/i/tridion-docs-ideas/add-ootb-reuse-snapshot-report
By the way, the reuse report I was asked to work on includes more info than the proposal in the link.
If the idea is to report on how much labor is saved by reuse, I would think metrics about how much content is reused, would be good to include too. Word count, for example, for content included by a conref.
