Probelm Assigning Matid in ansys

I have a problem similar to the one discussed in thread569-361789: CMSEL command doesn't seem to work for me in workbench.

Im using Ansys workbench 17.1
I use the *get command to retrieve some model data.
It would be useful to have the matid to get data related to each body.
But how do you find the Matid for each body?
Previous closed threads (like thread569-361789: CMSEL command doesn't seem to work for me in workbench) have suggested assigning a command object "*set,x,matid" to each body.
This works great for small models, but what if I have a model with hundreds or thousands of bodies?
It is not practical to manually enter a command object for each body.

As 0rel mentioned in your linked discussion:

PS: I think Workbench assigns a matid to each and every solid in a descending order. If so, you can manually set your X to the position of the solid in the sub-tree. It can be faster but it is not clean and should be verified :)

You can verify it in Ansys Classic with ELIST,P.
