Attribute Descriptions for METADATA_DATASET

childrenSet to "true" if the dataset has children.
contentMetadata document content type.
docidString used to uniquely identify a document. The client used to publish the metadata is responsible for creating the document ID. This ID is automatically assigned when using ArcCatalog. If another client is used, GET_UUID can be used to request a valid ID. The format for an ID is the following:
where H is a hexadecimal digit (0-9,a-f,A-F). The ID is limited to 38 characters.
folderSet to "true" if the document represents a folder.
gndURL of a GND file on the server pointing to an ArcIMS service referenced by the metadata document.
index_statusThis attribute has been deprecated since it no longer provides information about a document's status with respect to indexing. Any documents published in ArcIMS 9.0 or higher always have a NULL value in the database, which is reported as index_status="not indexed".
nameName that identifies the dataset corresponding to the document.
onlinkA string identifying the location of the dataset corresponding to the document.
