Connect, Document Sets, Workflow Metadata

I’m once again writing to complain about the disconnect between Connect and Workflow Metadata. I have a job that Groups into Document Sets, based on Sheet Count: 1-8, 9-Largest.

I want to get a Document count, per Document Set.

What I expect is that, after the Create Job, I’d have a Metadata structure with one Group per Document Set, and then getting the count is very simple: Get Metadata Location, read the number of Documents in each Group.

But that doesn’t happen. Even with Grouping turned on, the Metadata file still has a single Group. This has been a bug/problem with Connect since day one. When will this be fixed?

And in the meantime, how would I got about getting a document count per Document Set?

This question has been posted previously in another thread. We will be providing a plug-in which will give you the majority of what you are looking for. This is scheduled for 2022.2.

What plugin are you referring to here as its already v2023.2?


That’s the Job Report task, available in the Connect category in the Plug-in bar.

Make sure to read the documentation for the task because there’s a one-time setup that needs to be performed before using it.

Thanks Phil! Will check it out.
