Is it possible to queue documents for rendering using DQL?

We have discovered that there are a considerable number of documents in our Docbase that do not have renditions, due to an issue.

Through another post here, I discovered how to query to find all documents that don't have renditions.  What I need to know now is whether or not it's possible to queue these documents to be rendered to PDF using DQL, or if this must be done using a scripting language and calling the Documentum API.

If it could be done through DQL, this would be more lightweight and preferred.

I reviewed Documentum's DQL Guide and there didn't appear to be a reference to a queueing mechanism of any sorts.

I've been researching this and it appears the answer to my own question is NO, that DQL cannot be used to queue documents.

However, the interactive API tester in documentum can be used to manually submit API calls, and/or a script can be written against the API.

The API call for queueing a rendition is as follows:

queue,c,,dm_autorender_win31,rendition,0,F,,rendition_req_ ps_pdf

You are correct and OOTB it is impossible. However what you can do though is create a short script to perform these api and feed into IAPI
