Delete files in trashcan using CMIS 1.1 ?

Hi everybody,

is it possible to retrieve/delete the global trashcan, e.g.


by using CMIS?

I want to delete the admins trashcan and tried the following, but with no results:

             OperationContext oc = OperationContextUtils.createMinimumOperationContext();

             final String queryString = "SELECT * FROM cmis:document where CONTAINS('PATH:\"/share/page/user/admin                /user-trashcan\"')";

             //queryResult is null

             ItemIterable<QueryResult> queryResult = session.query(queryString, false, oc);


Due to privacy protection our trashcan must be deleted constantly. What would be the way to go here?
Thanks in advance!

You can configure schedule job for cleaning trashcan.Change cron as per your requirement and put that cron in file.
