[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Developing custom reports

Dear Colleagues,

We are considering creating three reports that are essentially data dumps of various record types in a repository, e.g. all resource record level data; all accession record level data; and all archival object level data associated with a single resource record. You can see our use cases and specifications here:

Resource record level data: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ndDKXuE27rKdfOycPjCODq6UVOKGlqY4ns3x_S4aFcM/edit?usp=sharing
Accession record level data: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1XxddO8KDJdY97q6g9IzLffbnxjP8ei1U9BpErKP3NZA/edit?usp=sharing
Archival object data: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1D9H31AoPtqmShf14EnrPoNgTimqzOTQa2GtcTcJBn1M/edit?usp=sharing

The out-of-the-box reports don't contain all the data we are looking for in terms of data analysis, editing, and/or reporting purposes. We know there are some challenging areas to accommodate with linked tables and fields that are repeatable (e.g. extent) but are hopeful we can manage those. Given our particular situation reports are more desirable than say read only access to the database, which I know many people would use to get this data.

First question: has anyone already written reports similar to these three?

Second question: is there any interest in collaborating to develop these?

Thanks in advance,
