How to assign current date to a d:date type property in a content model?

Jump to solution

Hi,

I am defining an aspect model:

<aspect name="mt:myAspect">
    <properties>
        <property name="mt:effectiveDate">
            <type>d:date</type>
            <mandatory>true</mandatory>
            <default>(I want to use current date here)</default>
        </property>
    </properties>
</aspect>

Because this property shall be mandatory, the default value cannot be an empty string (the empty string will cause errors). Can you help please?

Thank you!

You can write a behavior that sets the property with the current date.

If you are not familiar with behaviors, check out my tuorial on the topic: Implementing Custom Behaviors in Alfresco | ECMArchitect | Alfresco Developer Tutorials

Hi:

I imagine that from the model point of view you can set an ISO 8601 date by default.

On the other hand, in the Jeff's line, here you have a small customization for doing similar thing with cm:effectivity aspect and cm:to property (in this case the behaviour is for setting one month from the creation date).

GitHub - zylklab/zk-qshared-effectivity: Public url documents (qshared) with effectivity in Alfresco...
