Version 2.1.2

Both artifacts are versioned as 2.1.2

Fixed deployment of web resources in the file-mapping.properties

Version 3.0.0

AMP artifacts ready-to-deploy available at 3.1.0

It can be defined the same DataList ID to be applied locally inside a Site, overriding global Dictionary datalist values. When using for advanced search, new search parameter has been added for FTL control in order to mix all values from local sites and Dictionary sites.

** Sample scenario **

Datalist definitions

Dictionary Site > Datalist "Options" > Values = 1,2
Sample 1 Site   > Datalist "Options" > Values = 3,4
Sample 2 Site   > No datalist defined

Values provided by combos

Outside from a Site  > Values = 1,2
From Advanced Search > Values = 1,2,3,4
From Sample 1 Site   > Values = 3,4
From Sample 2 Site   > Values = 1,2

Sample custom model and Share form definition are being provided at folder datalist-sample

Version 3.1.0

Added controls for default value and parent selection

Version 3.2.0

AMP artifacts ready-to-deploy available at 3.2.0

Keywords [ADD] and [REPLACE] have been added to define the behaviour of a list inside a Site:

  • [ADD] merges values from global Dictionary list and Site list
  • [REPLACE] includes only values from Site list

This keyword has to be included in any place at Description field when declaring the list inside a Site.

** Sample scenario **

Datalist definitions

Dictionary Site > Datalist "Options" > Values = 1,2
Sample 1 Site   > Datalist "Options" (including [ADD] in description) > Values = 3,4
Sample 2 Site   > Datalist "Options" (including [REPLACE] in description) > Values = 3,4
Sample 3 Site   > No datalist defined

Values provided by combos

Outside from a Site  > Values = 1,2
From Advanced Search > Values = 1,2,3,4
From Sample 1 Site   > Values = 1,2,3,4
From Sample 2 Site   > Values = 3,4
From Sample 3 Site   > Values = 1,2

Sample script to create lists and values from command line

#!/bin/sh

# Alfresco server hostname
hostname=localhost
# Basic auth, admin/admin by default
authorization="Authorization: Basic YWRtaW46YWRtaW4="

# Lists names
lists=("lista1" "lista2" "lista3")

# Values by list name
lista1=("code1a,value1a" "code1b,value1b")
lista2=("code2a,value2a" "code2b,value2b")
lista3=("code3,value3")

for listName in "${lists[@]}"; do

	listNodeRef=$(curl --silent -X POST \
	  http://"${hostname}"/alfresco/s/api/type/dl%3AdataList/formprocessor \
	  -H "${authorization}" \
	  -H 'content-type: multipart/form-data;' \
	  -F alf_destination=workspace://SpacesStore/582ca69b-4a38-42ac-bb7b-d215929a2e17 \
	  -F prop_cm_title=$listName \
	  -F prop_dl_dataListItemType=dlm:optionList \
	  | grep "persistedObject" | cut -c"25-" | rev | cut -c"3-" | rev)

	echo "Created list $listName ($listNodeRef)"

	values="${listName}[@]"
	for value in "${!values}"; do

		code=$(echo "${value}" | cut -d "," -f 1)
		value=$(echo "${value}" | cut -d "," -f 2)

		itemNodeRef=$(curl --silent -X POST \
		  http://"${hostname}"/alfresco/s/api/type/dlm%3AoptionList/formprocessor \
	      -H "${authorization}" \
		  -H 'content-type: multipart/form-data;' \
		  -F alf_destination=$listNodeRef \
		  -F 'prop_dlm_code='"${code}"'' \
		  -F 'prop_dlm_value='"${value}"'' \
		  | grep "persistedObject" | cut -c"25-" | rev | cut -c"3-" | rev)
