Find the Lightning Pages where Aura component is being used?

Hi Team,

I have certain lightning aura components which I want to delete. I am aware that I need to remove those components from the lightning pages where the aura components are being used.
How do I find those lightning pages?
Many Thanks in advance!

Hi John,

Greetings to you!
You would first need to retrieve the relevant metadata with a metadata API retrieve call using your tool of choice. Here's a sample package manifest for performing a retrieval of the lightning definitions and related resources:
$ cat package.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> 
<Package xmlns="http://soap.sforce.com/2006/04/metadata">

Then find the files that contain the text string indicating the component in question, in this case, c:myCmp:

$ grep c:myCmp -R .  
./aura/myApp/myApp.app:       <c:myCmp />

Assuming that I haven't commented that section out, this would show that myCmp is being used in myApp.

I hope you find the above solution helpful. If it does, please mark as Best Answer to help others too.

Thanks and Regards,

Thanks for response!
I am trying to find out the Lightning Pages(listed in the Lighning App Builder) using the Lightning Aura Component bundle myCmp(say).
Would your solution list the Lightning Pages as result?
