A tiny tool for Powerdesigner client to save search result
A client wants to search for certain objects in a large repository and save the result into Excel.
Unfortunately Powerdesigner client doesn’t provide functionality to save the output.
Powerdesigner Portal 16.6 does have the feature. But the performance and output format is not very satisfactory .
I build a tiny tool in C# to fill the gap.
Attached is the exe file. ( Remove .txt after unzip)
This is the step to set up the tool.
1) Open Powerdesigner. Go to Tools->Execute Commands->Customize Commands.
2) Click Add a Row icon.
Give a name to the command. For example, Save2Excel
In Submenu field, select Import
In Type field, select Executable
In Command Line field, click the field, then browser to the place where the executable located.
3) Close and restart Powerdesigner.
4) Connect to repository and run Find Objects.
5) Go to Tools->Execute Commands->Import. Click Save2Excel.
This tool also works for local Workspace.
A worthwhile demonstration of the extension capabilities of PD - provides a simple way of getting a list of everything in a model, folders, workspace, etc., even the whole repository if you're not careful!
I don't see the tool attached in your blog post or any link to download it.
