Where can I find information on document repositories?

In the table/class HS_Registry.document there is a column/property named RepositoryUniqueId.  There are about 14 unique values, which pretty much lines up with the number of our "Push" (Provide & Register) participants and thus unique document repositories.  However, these values just look like OIDs.  I've been searching for over an hour and I can't find anywhere that will provide me some context to these "Repository IDs".  

Anyone have ideas or suggestions where I could find this info?

I finally found it.

WHERE Types = 'Repository'

But the table is empty in the HSREG namespace, which is where I need the data.  So I can't do a JOIN and I have to manually cross reference.  :(

At least it's only 15 or so...


Hi Scott,

Can you provide a little more context on what you're trying to accomplish? There might be a much easier way available in published APIs.

As you can see from my comment (still can't post answers to our own questions) I found what I was looking for.  As for APIs, this is for reporting.  SQL is much preferred.
