How to find ListView Owner in Metadata API

I need to find out listview for a specific user. How can I do that using Metadata API?


Any help?




Private List views (i.e. List views with the Visible only to me / Restrict Visibility option) are not available via the Meta data API.  Refer to

Thank you Anand for quick reply.


Is there a way to find out views for a specific user if I have owner ID?


I am logging in as Modify All data access and based on email ID, I am finding user ID. I would like that user to pickup one of his views so that I can download that data for him\her and use it in further processing.


I'm not sure I understand your exact use case and so this might be off tangent, but here goes anyway. There is a way in VisualForce to determine all list views (public and private) that a particular user has access to for a particular SObject (Opportunity, Account, some custom object etc).

The getListViewOptions() method on the StandardSetController class returns such a list. You can also peruse the Visualforce developer guide for more details about the method.

This is exactly what I am looking for. BUT I am not using Visual Force. Is there a way to accomplish this with AXIS API?
