Welcome to the Alfresco Builder Network

Gets Alfresco Repository folder content based on a Repository account configured in Alfresco Process Services (APS).

It is possible to configure multiple Alfresco Repository accounts in APS (i.e. multiple Alfresco Servers). This service can also be used to link Alfresco content as related content in APS. Content such as documents and other files can be attached to Process Instances and Task Instances as related content.

Note: At the moment you must provide the ActivitiAlfrescoContentService class from your NgModule for it to work:

@NgModule({
...
  providers: [ActivitiAlfrescoContentService] 
})

And also import it in the way shown below.

Importing

import { ActivitiAlfrescoContentService } from '@alfresco/adf-core';

class SomePageComponent implements OnInit {

 constructor(private contentService: ActivitiAlfrescoContentService) {
   }

Methods

getAlfrescoNodes(accountId: string, folderId: string): Observable<ExternalContent>

Get all the nodes under passed in folder node ID (e.g. 3062d73b-fe47-4040-89d2-79efae63869c) for passed in Alfresco Repository account ID as configured in APS:

export class SomePageComponent implements OnInit {
 
  ngOnInit() {
    const alfRepoAccountId = 'alfresco-2';
    const folderNodeId = '3062d73b-fe47-4040-89d2-79efae63869c';
    this.contentService.getAlfrescoNodes(alfRepoAccountId, folderNodeId).subscribe( nodes => {
      console.log('Nodes: ', nodes);
      }, error => {
        console.log('Error: ', error);
      });
  }

In the above sample code the alfRepoAccountId points to an Alfresco Repository configuration in APS with ID alfresco-2. The folderNodeId needs to identify a folder node ID in the Alfresco Repository identified by the alfRepoAccountId.

The response contained in nodes is an array with properties for each object like in this sample:

0:
    folder: false
    id: "2223d3c2-0709-4dd7-a79b-c45571901889;1.0"
    simpleType: "pdf"
    title: "JLAN_Server_Installation_Guide.pdf"
1:
    folder: false
    id: "900b4dc0-bfdc-4ec1-84dd-5f1f0a420066;1.0"
    simpleType: "image"
    title: "Screen Shot 2017-09-21 at 15.44.23.png"
    
2:
    folder: true
    id: "f7010382-7b4e-4a78-bb94-9de092439230"
    simpleType: "folder"
    title: "Event More Stuff"

linkAlfrescoNode(accountId: string, node: ExternalContent, siteId: string): Observable<ExternalContentLink>

Link Alfresco content as related content in APS by passing in Alfresco node identifying the content, the Share site that contains the content, and the Alfresco Repository account ID as configured in APS:

export class SomePageComponent implements OnInit {
 
  ngOnInit() {
    const alfRepoAccountId = 'alfresco-2';
    const siteId = 'sample-workspace'; 
    const externalContentNode = {
      id: 'da196918-1324-4e97-9d26-d28f1837a0b6',
      simpleType: 'content',
      title: 'simple.txt',
      folder: false
    }
    this.contentService.linkAlfrescoNode(alfRepoAccountId, externalContentNode, siteId).subscribe(link => {
        console.log('Link: ', link);
     }, error => {
        console.log('Error: ', error);
     });
  }

In the above sample code the alfRepoAccountId points to an Alfresco Repository configuration in APS with ID alfresco-2. The siteId identifies an Alfresco Share site in the Alfresco Repository where the content to be linked resides. You can get the ID for a Share site from the URL: http://localhost:8080/share/page/site/<siteId>. The externalContentNode identifies the content that should be set up as temporary related content in APS. The externalContentNode.id points to an Alfresco node in the Share site specified with siteId.

The response contained in link looks like in this sample:

link:
    contentAvailable: true
    created: Tue Nov 07 2017 13:18:48 GMT+0000 (GMT) {}
    createdBy: {id: 1, firstName: null, lastName: "Administrator", email: "[email protected]"}
    id: 6006
    link:true
    mimeType: null
    name: "simple.txt"
    previewStatus: "queued"
    relatedContent: false
    simpleType: "content"
    source: "alfresco-2"
    sourceId: "[email protected]"
    thumbnailStatus: "queued"
