I would like to get the filename with a core service GetListXml call. Currently my returned XML is:

<tcm:Item ID="tcm:9-26-64" Title="abc" Type="64" Modified="2013-03-27T21:27:54"
          IsNew="false" Icon="T64L0P0" 

Can I use a different filter to get the filename?

var tridionItems = client.GetListXml(
    new OrganizationalItemItemsFilterData
        ItemTypes = new[] {
            Tridion.ContentManager.CoreService.Client.ItemType.Page },
            Recursive = recursive

Unfortunately this information is not available in the list XML. The best you can do is set IncludeRelativeWebDavUrlColumn to true. This will give you URL column like URL="/webdav/Test/root/page.tpg". You can then split this value by / and pick the last member.

Alternatively, if you are on SDL Tridion 2013 you can use GetList method with BaseColumns = ListBaseColumns.Extended. This will give you IdentifiableObjects list which you can then cast to pages and get FileName

    The WebDAVURL does not expose the file name of the page though, even though it resembles it superficially. Instead, it uses the title of the page. I think you have no alternative but to open the page itself.

  • Yes, I am opening the pages now. It is an optional feature in the app, so won't slow it down all the time...
