With productdescription i mean what you se in the productionclass for each namespace (if there is a productionclass) between the tags <Description></Description>. You can set value from manager portal on product settings.

What i want to do, is in a production in the process (with cos) get that description from any other namespace. Wihout to do any global mappings . Then i want to access the content in that productionclass and read out the value from<Description>Value</Description>.


I will take a look at $SYSTEM.SYS.NameSpace() as suggested



Execute this SQL in every namespace you need to get a list of production classes and their descriptions:

ID, Description
FROM Ens_Config.Production

Here's a sample project with query that executes in every Ensemble namespace. Also article about writing custom queries.


What is "productdescription"? How do you access it now? Use this code to switch namespaces:

new $namespace
set $namespace = <Other namespace>
do stuff

Docs for $namespace, zn.
