powerVault Search via API sample - return other attributes


With powerVault in PowerShell, I am successfully utilising Vault search via API, based on the sample functions provided in the very helpful coolOrange bundle. 

I notice that that only a particular set of object attributes are returned in the search results, e.g.:

FileRev : Autodesk.Connectivity.WebServices.FileRev

FileLfCyc : Autodesk.Connectivity.WebServices.FileLfCyc

Cat : Autodesk.Connectivity.WebServices.FileCat

Id : 3548117

Name : X77TRA0GD090-01.ipt

VerName : X77TRA0GD090-01.ipt

MasterId : 3171295

VerNum : 20

MaxCkInVerNum : 20

CkInDate : 5/06/2020 9:46:36 AM

Comm : Model complete

CreateDate : 5/06/2020 9:46:36 AM

CreateUserId : 2

Cksum : 304485624

FileSize : 131072

ModDate : 24/09/2019 1:48:13 PM

CreateUserName : Administrator

CheckedOut : False

FolderId : 2860749

CkOutSpec :

CkOutMach :

CkOutUserId : -1

FileClass : None

Locked : True

Hidden : False

Cloaked : False

FileStatus : Unknown

IsOnSite : True

DesignVisAttmtStatus : None

ControlledByChangeOrder : False

I wonder if there is a way to return other attributes for the objects located by Search, e.g. Revision, please?


Thanks for any advice.

Hello Neil,

This is the object that is returned by the Vault API.

You can access the Revision using:


With powerVault you could use Get-VaultFile or Get-VaultFiles to get a powerVault file object which includes all the properties that are listed on the wiki page including the Revision.

Kind regards,

Manuel Cassan
