Hi Paul,

1Q746312661a84458bsul1 and other identifiers like that is the LON-CAPA 
Course ID. This value is created when the course is created and never 
ever changes. The course title (e.g., "ASTR100 Fall 2003"), even though 
unlikely, could be changed.

As Domain Coordinator, go to Main Menu >> View or modify a course or 
community. Copy the course id to " LON-CAPA course ID:" and click 
"Search" to retrieve the current title and more related data.

This is of course not useful for batch retrieval but offers a quick way 
to check the data.

As we don't use Autoenrollment here, others might have more or better ideas.

> So my most urgent question is: is there a way to retrieve course information based on the "affiliate" id? It doesn't have to be something within LON-CAPA proper, in fact, I'd prefer something that could generate a plain text file. If anyone has a clue for me on constructing a MySQL query against the database so that I can extract that information, I could use that.  Basically, I'd like to filter out the past courses from autoenroll.log so I can see what is happening to the current courses without all the noise from irrelevant courses. I can do that in many different ways, I'm sure, but it strikes me that simply generating a list of what all the courses in the database are/have been (particularly by "affiliate" id, which is all the course identification that is in the log) would give me a relatively straightforward start on such a filter so I can say:
