How can we search for an object given its name?

  1. Launch Developer / Desktop
  2. Connect to the right project source
  3. Drill down onto the appropriate project
  4. Press CTRL+F or click on Tools -> Search for Objects
  5. Provide the name of the object and click on the Find Now button

How can we search for an object given its ID?

  1. Launch Developer / Desktop
  2. Connect to the right project source
  3. Drill down onto the appropriate project
  4. Press CTRL+F or click on Tools -> Search for Objects
  5. In the pop-up window, click on Tools -> Search by ID, then type there your ID

How can we get information regarding an object that had been deleted?

When looking at the DSSErrors.log file, we may see an error message like:

Object with ID 'F1762EF7413387D50F125C9B7D8E3E82' and type 7 (Aggregate Metric) is not found in metadata. It may have been deleted.

To get information regarding this object, we may need to search for this object by ID on other environments. Alternative you can perform a query in Enterprise Manager. Here you can find statistical information, including information about objects that are deleted. I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO DO THIS YET. NEED CONCRETE EXAMPLE.
