I need to check for a particular resource in different VF pages.Normal method will be opening each page and checking for the static resource(Image/JS files) but is there any other probable method ??

Can't we directly query from console where a static resource is used ?? Please help.

The metadata API can be used. There's also a free tool on the App Exchange. Is called Metadata Search that will allow you to search your org for metadata strings to find where they're located including within the code inside triggers, classes, object fields, etc that have a reference to them. You might also want to look at Octopus which has capabilities for documenting what's in your org, including static resources, and is also free. However, I don't believe it has the same level of extensive search capabilities.

  • or could use Eclipse IDE and click Search for the staticResource name
