Re: How to get property description using java api from PropertyRepresentation

Hi thanks for a quick response,

I'm trying to get this description from a property from alfresco model manager. I want to get it in my application 

as String but PropertyRepresentation has only these attributes and no description attribute.

So i'm wondering is it possible to get the description?

Property descriptions are just descriptive text for alfresco models. As far as I know you cannot read that into your application and according to me you should not be using that in your application.

If i understand correctly based on https://prnt.sc/pcxf13 this link, you want to get the property definition as configured in content model. To get the property definition use DictionaryService.

Dictionary Service: https://docs.alfresco.com/5.2/references/dev-services-dictionary.html

See the API here: http://dev.alfresco.com/resource/AlfrescoOne/5.1/PublicAPI/org/alfresco/service/cmr/dictionary/Dicti...
