Here is how it looks like right now:

move-to.post.json.js

/**

    file,
    fileNode,
    result,
    nodeRef,
    fromSite;

    // Must have array of files
    if (!files || files.length == 0) {
        status.setCode(status.STATUS_BAD_REQUEST, "No files.");
        return;
    }

    for (file in files) {
        nodeRef = files[file];
        result = {
            nodeRef: nodeRef,

            success: false
        }

        try {
            fileNode = search.findNode(nodeRef);
            if (fileNode == null) {
                result.id = file;

                result.id = fileNode.name;
                result.type = fileNode.isContainer ? "folder" : "document";

Keep some logging to make sure your logic works. Make sure to check from site and out of site moves. These are simple basic checks and debugging steps.

If you still see any errors, try removing custom permission check (or custom permission check + custom permission definition) and use any OOTB role such as 'SiteCollaborator' to make sure the extended move-to.post.json webscript is working fine. 

Enable following log config in log4j.properties:

log4j.logger.org.alfresco.repo.jscript.ScriptLogger=DEBUG

Updated code:

<import resource = "classpath:/alfresco/templates/webscripts/org/alfresco/slingshot/documentlibrary/action/action.lib.js" >

Re: Edit/remove permissions from out-of-the-box actions

Jump to solution

Thanks again for the explanation. Logger helped me a lot and I tested the script by removing custom permissions check and permission definitions. I think the modified move-to.post.json.js is functioning correctly but there is something wrong with my customMove method or with the bean registration.

After checking my XML and java files, I realized that I didn't have a bean reference for 'FileFolderService' in my custom move bean so I added it as below:

service-context.xml:

<beans xmlns="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans"
       xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
       xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans
          http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans/spring-beans-3.0.xsd">
    <bean id="at.tuwien.dsdm.alfresco.acs.repo.customMoveObject"
          class="at.tuwien.dsdm.alfresco.acs.repo.CustomMoveObject"
          parent="baseJavaScriptExtension">
        <property name="extensionName" value="customMove" />
        <property name="fileFolderService">
            <ref bean="FileFolderService" />
        </property>
    </bean>

</beans>

After this change, I didn't get any errors regarding moving a file as a user with my new role. However, when I try to move any file I get the screen below:

move-to.png

And it gets stuck here. The dialog window or the text "Files being moved..." doesn't disappear. After refreshing the page I see that the file is moved successfully. Am I still missing any references during my bean registration? Or is something missing in my java class?

CustomMoveObject.java:

import org.alfresco.repo.processor.BaseProcessorExtension;
import org.alfresco.scripts.ScriptException;
import org.alfresco.service.cmr.repository.NodeRef;
import org.alfresco.service.cmr.model.FileFolderService;
import org.alfresco.repo.security.authentication.AuthenticationUtil;

public class CustomMoveObject extends BaseProcessorExtension {
    private FileFolderService fileFolderService;

    public void move(NodeRef sourceNodeRef, NodeRef sourceParentNodeRef, NodeRef targetParentNodeRef) {
        AuthenticationUtil.setRunAsUserSystem();
        try {
            if (null == sourceParentNodeRef) {
                fileFolderService.move(sourceNodeRef, targetParentNodeRef, null);

            } else {
                fileFolderService.moveFrom(sourceNodeRef, sourceParentNodeRef, targetParentNodeRef, null);
            }
        } catch (Exception e) {
            throw new ScriptException("Can't move selected node", e);
        }
    }

    public void setFileFolderService(FileFolderService fileFolderService) {
        this.fileFolderService = fileFolderService;
    }

}

import org.alfresco.service.cmr.model.FileFolderService;

public class CustomMoveObject extends BaseProcessorExtension {
    private FileFolderService fileFolderService;

    public void move(NodeRef sourceNodeRef, NodeRef sourceParentNodeRef, NodeRef targetParentNodeRef) {
        AuthenticationUtil.setRunAsUserSystem();
        try {
            if (null == sourceParentNodeRef) {
                fileFolderService.move(sourceNodeRef, targetParentNodeRef, null);

            } else {
                fileFolderService.moveFrom(sourceNodeRef, sourceParentNodeRef, targetParentNodeRef, null);
            }
        } catch (Exception e) {
            throw new ScriptException("Can't move selected node", e);
        }
    }

    public void setFileFolderService(FileFolderService fileFolderService) {
        this.fileFolderService = fileFolderService;
    }

}

It looks like you are not returning boolean as expected by the webscript in order to complete the whole process. This could be the reason it is getting stuck. If you review the move-to.json.js code, you would see this block:

if (result.success) {
  ................................
}

Your custom move is returning void. Try returning boolean from custom move script and see if it works.

Move method should be something like:

public boolean move(NodeRef sourceNodeRef, NodeRef sourceParentNodeRef, NodeRef targetParentNodeRef) {
    AuthenticationUtil.setRunAsUserSystem();
    boolean hasMoved = false;
    try {
        FileInfo fileInfo = null;
        if (null == sourceParentNodeRef) {
            fileInfo = fileFolderService.move(sourceNodeRef, targetParentNodeRef, null);
        } else {
            fileInfo = fileFolderService.moveFrom(sourceNodeRef, sourceParentNodeRef, targetParentNodeRef, null);
        }
        hasMoved = nodeService.exists(fileInfo.getNodeRef());
    } catch (Exception e) {
        throw new ScriptException("Can't move selected node", e);
    }
    return hasMoved;
}

With help of NodeService check whether node exists after move and then return boolean.

That was it. Thanks a lot for all the help. I will update my first post tomorrow with the correct implementations in case someone else needs something similar in the future. Really appreciated.
