Prepare a package XML to retrieve all Report using Apex and Workbench

Prepare a package.xml file and download it

Run below code in Execute Anonymous Window using Developer Console. It will send package.xml file in your email. Don’t forget to update your email address in below code.

 String packageg = '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><Package xmlns=""><types>';
 Map<String, String> folderinfo = new Map<String, String>();
 for(Folder rp: [select Name, developername from Folder where type='Report']){
    folderinfo.put(, rp.developername);
 for(Report rp: [select id, FolderName, name, developername, description from report where NamespacePrefix = null]){
        packageg +='<members>'+folderinfo.get(rp.FolderName)+'/'+ rp.developername+'</members>';
 packageg += '<name>Report</name>';
 packageg += '</types><version>48.0</version></Package>';
 Messaging.EmailFileAttachment csvAttcmnt = new Messaging.EmailFileAttachment ();
 blob csvBlob = Blob.valueOf (packageg);
 string csvname = 'Package.XML';
 csvAttcmnt.setBody (csvBlob);
 Messaging.SingleEmailMessage singEmail = new Messaging.SingleEmailMessage ();
 String [] toAddresses = new list<string> {''};
 singEmail.setToAddresses (toAddresses);
 String subject ='Report Pull- Package.xml';
 singEmail.setSubject (subject);
 singEmail.setPlainTextBody ('Package XML for report');
 singEmail.setFileAttachments (new Messaging.EmailFileAttachment []{csvAttcmnt});
 Messaging.SendEmailResult [] r = Messaging.sendEmail (new Messaging.SingleEmailMessage [] {singEmail})

Retrieve Reports using Package.xml

Now, you login in org using workbench and retrieve all Reports using above received package.xml.

Or you can use the VS Code editor to retrieve the metadata by using this package.xml file.

Is it not easy to pull all reports!!

  1. Hey this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting
    a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so
    I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated! games ps4 allenferguson games ps4

    days, but I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It’s pretty value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if
    all web owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you
    probably did, the net might be a lot more useful than ever

    up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back
    later on. Many thanks
