How can I get list of all workflow rules using apex?


How can I get list of all workflow rules using apex? I want to retrieve names of all workflow rules using apex code.

Possible Suggestion/Solution #1

I've been successful in getting parts of the Metadata API working from Apex using the WSDL2Apex tool and a few tweaks! However the listMetadata operation in respect to Workflow does not quite return what you would expect. Take a look at this answer for more info. Hope this helps!

I haven't done it myself, but I think you could call the metadata api from apex and than process the output.

Unfortunately I believe you would need to use the Metadata API for this, which requires processing outside of Apex (from Heroku in Python/Ruby, for example). However, if there's a way to get this done from within Apex, I'll be really happy to learn about it!
