This method of extracting information is deprecated. You should now use the CAST RestAPI to extract the information you require.


This document provides a detailed description of each CAST System View provided in the Dashboard Service (all tables/views beginning with CSV_) together with column information. Depending on your specific configuration, some tables/views may not be available.

Choose the item you would like to know more about from the menu above.
