DRX 2.3 Released

Brian Y. and I are pleased to announce the release of DRX (Documentum Repository eXplorer) version 2.3.

DRX is a powerful exploration, auditing, and documentation tool that allows Documentum administrators and developers to quickly document vital information  about their repositories and environments. DRX provides a simple UI to  facilitate logging into the Documentum repository, configuring and running  specific reporting modules, and viewing the resultant reports. DRX reports are  generated in HTML for easy viewing and XML for more complex processing.

DRX is distributed as an EXE file that contains all of the Java code,  requisite libraries, JVM and the DFC required to run the program. Its compact  distribution and simple installation (simply unzip it!) make it easy to run from  a thumb drive, or move from one computer to another.

Here are the highlighting and new features in version 2.3:

  • Added additional stats for WF (terminated and halted)
  • Separated SCS from WebPub reporting (still in same module)
  • Added additional product/feature checks in the EnvInfo Module
  • Distribute config/dfc.keystore file to avoid endless hangs in certain conditions
  • Tweaked queries for custom object types to eliminate stock BOF classes
  • Corrected bug in role query
  • Corrected bug in TCS detection
  • Add “top user” queries to users and groups module
  • Expanded role reporting to match group reporting
  • General code cleanup and standardization
  • Added drx.exclude_types property to config/dfc.properties. These entries will be object types excluded from the Custom Types and Hierarchy report.
  • DRX no longer overwrites the config/dfc.properties file (required for drx.exclude_types).
  • Added Webtop Presets module (user must copy dfc.globalregisty.* entries from the Content Server dfc.properties to the DRX confg/dfc.properties file.

DRX v2.3 is available for download here:  http://sourceforge.net/projects/drxproj/files/

If you haven’t tried DRX yet, I encourage you to download it and give it a try. For a brief explanation of DRX, see here .  And, as always, if you have any feedback or feature requests, please log them here.  Enjoy.


About Scott
I have been implementing Documentum solutions since 1997. In 2005, I published a book about developing Documentum solutions for the Documentum Desktop Client (ISBN 0595339689). In 2010, I began this blog as a record of interesting and (hopefully) helpful bits of information related to Documentum, and as a creative outlet.
