I need to fetch those TCM IDs from publishing queue which has been unpublished successfully using Tridion Core Service.

  • Hi Sudip. It would be useful if you could tell us what investigation you've done so far and what problems you've encountered please. A simple Google search should give some ideas of where to start (using both C# and PowerShell): google.co.uk/… Commented Nov 30, 2018 at 8:29
  • Hi @JonathanWilliams, I have used PublishTransactionState but that will give me only publishing success and failed result. I want those item which has been unpublished successfully

  • Off the top of my head, the PublishTransactionData object should contain details about the Publish Instruction. Commented Nov 30, 2018 at 9:32
  • I am getting published success and failed data through PublishTransactionData. I want to fetch the unpublished success and failed data.

You will have to use PublishTransactionsFilterData filter to retrieve all publish transactions based on your criteria.

                PublishTransactionsFilterData ptfd = new PublishTransactionsFilterData()
                PublicationTarget = new LinkToPublicationTargetData() { IdRef = "tcm:0-19-65537" },
                ForRepository = new LinkToRepositoryData() { IdRef = "tcm:0-127-1" },
                PublishTransactionState = PublishTransactionState.Success
 IdentifiableObjectData[] transactions = CoreServiceConnector.Client.GetSystemWideList(ptfd);

However, this filter has no info on resolve purpose, so you will have to read each transaction, get its ResolveInstruction.Purpose and check if its ResolvePurpose.UnPublish:

 foreach (PublishTransactionData transaction in transactions)
                PublishTransactionData transactionData = (PublishTransactionData)CoreServiceConnector.Client.Read(transaction.Id, new ReadOptions());

                if (transactionData.Instruction.ResolveInstruction.Purpose == ResolvePurpose.UnPublish)
                   // do something


Just an update, you have to read every transaction again with client.read because ResolveInstruction is not available on GetSystemWideList() because of lazy load.

  • Note that the Publish Queue in CME also shows Publish or Unpublish, so that info is available in the list data. I don’t have a system at hand to check which property it is, but I expect a PublishTransactionData property to reflect Publish/Unpublish in the list data (no need for full loads).

  • its shown as Action="1" for Unpublish, Action="0" for publish, or Action="2" for republish, and min value of integer for uknown by client if XML is retrieved instead of objects.

  • So yeah, LINQ can be used to filter based on XML property if GetSystemWideListXml() is used.
