Question is  : -

1- How do i navigate to 'claim' using javascript API.  I have tried following script

var envSubFolder = companyhome.childByNamePath("CLAIM");

Solved it , using following path

companyhome.childByNamePath("Sites/YourSite/documentLibrary/BusinessDocument/CLAIM")

I have just ignored the 'Site' path .

I am not sure this helps, but it was attached to a rule on a folder ... 

document.properties['fn:ReportName']=rname;

// function to create folder structure
function createFolder(parentNode, folderName, folderTitle)
{
var newFolder = parentNode.childByNamePath(folderName);
logger.log("Folder exists " + newFolder);
if (newFolder == null)
{
// create the folder for the first time
logger.log("Creating a new folder: " + folderName);
newFolder = parentNode.createFolder(folderName);
if(folderTitle != null)
{
logger.log("title: " + folderTitle);
newFolder.properties["cm:title"] = folderTitle;
newFolder.save();
}
}
return newFolder;
}

var parentNode = document.parent;
var higherParent = parentNode.parent;
var reportsNode = higherParent.childByNamePath("Reports");

//var reportNodeRef = "workspace://SpacesStore/f5b8dac7-ba6b-4a12-9655-cfe33d9b3307"
//var parentNode = search.findNode(reportNodeRef);
//parentNode = createFolder(parentNode, reportID);

// create folder for reportID with title long name
parentNode = createFolder(reportsNode, reportID, rname);
// create folder for date
parentNode = createFolder(parentNode, rdate, null);

document.save();
document.move(parentNode);

I understand , this is for creating folders in Alfresco Repo . My requirement is more to create a folder under  Share . Under Sire / Document Library  .

Script which i am executing is currently creating folders under repo . I can see that when i logged in as Admin . Under repository all the folders are created .

Is there any difference in Repo Folder structure and Alfresco Share Folder under Site/Document Library ?

 

thanks
