Jump to solution

Hi,
I need to send a document of a Software for Alfresco. I am using this service http://127.0.0.1:8080/alfresco/api/-default-/public/alfresco/versions/1/nodes/-shared-/children for create a document but i need send a file. For example: Send a PDF document to Alfresco.

What service can I consume for this?

Thank you

Hi @viperboys,

I've just used Postman to upload two documents to my home  directory in Alfresco.

Here is the generated PHP code from Postman:

<?php

$curl = curl_init();

curl_setopt_array($curl, array(
  CURLOPT_URL => "http://localhost:8080/alfresco/api/-default-/public/alfresco/versions/1/nodes/-my-/children?alf_ticket=TICKET_53451c24e8042867a93f0d129bbd3b1f5e2a5a55",
  CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER => true,
  CURLOPT_ENCODING => "",
  CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS => 10,
  CURLOPT_TIMEOUT => 0,
  CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION => true,
  CURLOPT_HTTP_VERSION => CURL_HTTP_VERSION_1_1,
  CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST => "POST",
  CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS => array('filedata'=> new CURLFILE('/Users/emay/Documents/Alfresco - a developer led strategy.pptx')),
  CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER => array(
    "Authorization: Basic dGVzdDp0ZXN0"
  ),
));

$response = curl_exec($curl);

curl_close($curl);
echo $response;

Attached you can see the files in Share.

Here's the code for uploading a jpg file:

<?php

$curl = curl_init();

curl_setopt_array($curl, array(
  CURLOPT_URL => "http://localhost:8080/alfresco/api/-default-/public/alfresco/versions/1/nodes/-my-/children?alf_ticket=TICKET_53451c24e8042867a93f0d129bbd3b1f5e2a5a55",
  CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER => true,
  CURLOPT_ENCODING => "",
  CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS => 10,
  CURLOPT_TIMEOUT => 0,
  CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION => true,
  CURLOPT_HTTP_VERSION => CURL_HTTP_VERSION_1_1,
  CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST => "POST",
  CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS => array('filedata'=> new CURLFILE('/Users/emay/Downloads/eddie.may.jpg')),
  CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER => array(
    "Authorization: Basic dGVzdDp0ZXN0"
  ),
));

$response = curl_exec($curl);

curl_close($curl);
echo $response;

Hopefully this should give you a start to resolving your problem.

You can use the same endpoint, but you should send your data as multipart-form-data.

Depending on your version, you can look at localhost:8080/api-explorer, or go to https://api-explorer.alfresco.com/api-explorer/#!/nodes/createNode for more info.

Thank you very much for answering ..

Can you give me a use case to do this with PHP? This is my code for create a document

<?php
set_time_limit(180);
$ticket =(isset($_POST['ticket'])) ? $_POST['ticket'] : 0;
$nid = (isset($_POST['name'])) ? $_POST['name'] : 0;

$data = array("name"=>"test.txt","nodeType" =>"cm:content");

$data_string = json_encode($data);

$ch = curl_init('http://127.0.0.1:8080/alfresco/api/-default-/public/alfresco/versions/1/nodes/-shared-/children?alf_...);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, "POST");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $data_string);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array(
'Content-Type: application/json',
'Content-Length: ' . strlen($data_string))
);


$result = curl_exec($ch);
if(curl_errno($ch) !== 0) {
error_log('cURL error when connecting to ' . $url . ': ' . curl_error($ch));
}

curl_close($ch);
print_r($result);

?>

 

What do I need to add to send a document in pdf?

Sorry, I don't know PHP, you should find this answer somewhere else. The only thing I could tell you is that content-type should be multipart/form-data.

Hi @viperboys,

What version of PHP are you using? Also, what's the scenario where you will be using this?

Thanks,

Hi, @EddieMay

I need to send a WordPress document to Alfresco. In wordpress I use a plugin called GravityForm to use form. To create the flows I use GravityFlow. The GravityFlow plugin has an add-on called WebHook for API use. At a certain step I need to send a document to Alfresco. This is the documentation https://docs.gravityflow.io/article/126-incoming-webhook

Thank you..

Hi @viperboys,

There's this library  - there's a discussion here about utilising this library, which is an implementation of Apache Chemistry CMIS. There is an example php upload file here, with usage instructions, for another approach.

HTH,

Hi @EddieMay 

Thank you very much .. This has helped me a lot.

Finally .. What service can I use to create a document and that its contents are metadata of the form? And if there is any use case to use it in POSTMAN.

Hi @viperboys,

Postman - I use it to manually test api calls, easier than debugging Alfresco, etc. Here are two introductions -1, 2.  

The Alfresco call will look something like this:

http://localhost:8080/alfresco/api/-default-/public/cmis/versions/1.1/browser/root?objectId=d140f140-2701-4ca6-8a80-8cdc9cd3b72c&cmisaction=createDocument&propertyId[0]=cmis:name&propertyValue[0]=ThirdPartyFormApigee.jpg&propertyId[1]=cmisSmiley SurprisedbjectTypeId&propertyValue[1]=cmis:document&alf_ticket=TICKET_3375c54fb50e6251d9e57f696483708ff9cc653a

obectid=d140f140-2701-4ca6-8a80-8cdc9cd3b72c = the destination folder id 

The thing to note with CMIS is that you're actually creating a new document in Alfresco - hence you need  to pass the content stream - in effect the document you're uploading is created as a new document in Alfresco.

Another thing to note is Apache Chemistry CMIS implementation does not support versioning - or at least as far as I can tell. However, this StackOverflow mentions it may be possible using a different library.
