We have a scenario where we will get an Item Id of a particular Component from its parent level. We basically want to know whether that Component is published (in a child Publication), and if it is, we want to republish it.
We are getting these Components (the parent URIs) from
UsingItemsFilterData, and we observed that the Item XML contains an
IsPublished attribute, and its value is always False (correct as this item is from the parent level and it cannot be published on that level). But this particular Component is published in a child Publication.
So using the parent level Component URI, we need to find out if that particular Component is published or not on a lower BluePrinted level.
We are using SDL Tridion 2011 SP1 and a .Net client application using Core Services.
