Get the categories assigned to Idea Zones

I am building a custom VF page to show the ideas. I want to get the list of categories that are assigned to an idea zone. For ex: I have created 3 zones: zone A, zone B, zone C for ideas. I have assinged Categories

Categories 1, 2, 3 to zone A,

Categories 4, 5, 6 to zone B,

Categories 3, 5, 6 to zone C.


If I go to standard Ideas tab, somehow salesforce could show the correct list of categories drop down for each zone. where as I don't find any option in Apex to query the list of assigned categoried for each zone.


Any suggestions please?

Hi Soma,

I have a similar requirement for a custom vf idea list page using a custom controller, were you able to find the idea categories assigned to each zone using apex? 

The only other way i could think of is to fake the mapping using a custom setting but that is the last workaround and i would hate to do that as it defies the purpose of the zones.
