I am looking to create a stored query to display all active groups that don't have any members in the group.
Hello,I don't think, that this is possible as a stored query.I would be able to provide you with the following solution:Adding a member count column to the grp object, and display this column in the group list form.This column would be sortable, that means , when sorting ascending, you would see all groups without members (member count = 0 ) at the top of the list.A bit tricky, I know, but the only chance I am aware, to find these groups within the Gui.Using reporting capabilities would be another way to go.Let me know, if you're interested Regards.....Michael
Yeah our client has a report that can run this query, but we are having connection issues to our BI servers so they cannot access it. We were looking for a quick turn around for this, so we went into looking at a stored query but it was providing us some troubles. I will mention this to my client as an option though and see what they think.
This won't help with the scoreboard query, but you can run this command on the SDM server:
bop_odump domsrvr cnt "type=2308" last_name member_list.length
You will get a listing from which you can identify which groups have 0 members.
I was able to also query the solution in SQL manager, but our clients don't have the access to SQL manager or to the server. I don't think that they want to rely upon someone else to get these results.
Another idea: You might be able to achieve the same result( getting a list of groups and their member count, unfortunately not ordered, I assume) by adding the count of members to one of the legacy reports of the standard group/contact list,summary or detail...Advantage: no change in the object layer, just some addings to the rpt file, deployable on the fly. Regards....Michael
If push comes to shove, you could also look at an option of getting the report via a ODBC connection that connects to SQL server and pulls the report into a CSV or XLS file.
Hope this helps somewhat?
