creating rule to delete node with sleep time is not working on folder

Hi All,

I am creating rule to delete node with sleep time is not working on folder.I just checked in java-script console it is working and same code is not working if apply through rule on folder. And also in that document is not able to delete in that sleep period.

var nodeRefs = companyhome.childByNamePath("Test");
if(nodeRefs!=null)
{
var nodes = nodeRefs.children;
for (var i=0; i<nodes.length; i++) {
sleep(50000);
if(nodes[i].isDocument)
{
nodes[i].remove();
}
console.log("i:"+i);
}
}

function sleep(delay) {
var start = new Date().getTime();
while (new Date().getTime() < start + delay);
}

Re: creating rule to delete node with sleep time is not working on folder

Hi kkumar _‌,

Alfresco server side java script does not have console.log() function so it is preventing script to run.  You can use logger.log() by enabling ScriptLogger to show your logs in server logs.

Thanks,

Re: creating rule to delete node with sleep time is not working on folder

It’s hard to understand what you want to achieve. I think this not the right way to handle a document after downloading/printing. Can you describe the „Workflow“ of the documents and the trigger of the rule.
