In Advanced search in contents metadata search is not coming.

Jump to solution

I have created metadata fields  and mapped it with respective sites and i have uploaded a lot of files with these metadata field . And in the advanced search i was able to search with the metadata field.

But recently i have added amps files in amps and amps_share and applied amps . After that in advanced search i am not getting my previous metadata fields for search option.

Before applying amps i have taken the backup of TOMCAT folder . Is there any way to get back my previous advanced metadata search option.

I am using alfresco commumity version 5.2 on windows 10 system.

I think it is possible because i have the backup of tomcat folder. Please help in this regard.

Regards

Akash

There might be something in the amp you applied to share app. Please share the link to the amp if its possible.

From what i could understand, you used to see Content search option but it is not visible. 

Extract the amp you applied to share app, and find the share-config-custom.xml. Look for '<config evaluator="string-compare" condition="AdvancedSearch" '

See if 'replace="true"'. Also check what all are all the forms that are configured and see if you can find whether form for content search is missing?

Following form should be configured in order to see content metadata search as option in Advance search:

<form labelId="search.form.label.cm_content" descriptionId="search.form.desc.cm_content">cm:content</form>

As you can see this from has replace=true which is replacing any existing forms configured by you. 

 

<config evaluator="string-compare" condition="AdvancedSearch" replace="true">
	<advanced-search>
		<forms>
			<!-- Standard out-of-the-box types -->
			<form labelId="pdftoolkit.aspect.signed.search.type"
    				descriptionId="pdftoolkit.aspect.signed.search.description"
    				id="signedpdfsearch">cm:content</form>
			<form labelId="pdftoolkit.aspect.encrypted.search.type"
    				descriptionId="pdftoolkit.aspect.encrypted.search.description"
    				id="encryptedpdfsearch">cm:content</form>
			<form labelId="search.form.label.cm_content"
    				descriptionId="search.form.desc.cm_content">cm:content
			</form>
			<form labelId="search.form.label.cm_folder"
    				descriptionId="search.form.desc.cm_folder">cm:folder</form>
			<!-- Custom type -->
			<form labelId="form.label.advancedsearch.acmeDocument"
    				descriptionId="form.description.advancedsearch.acmeDocument">acme:document
			</form>
		</forms>
	</advanced-search>
</config>

Modify the share-config-custom.xml in your custom module and set replace=true in custom module and additionally add the two forms that you actually need from share amp. or update the share-config-custom.xml in the amp to remove "replace=true" and remove all other form configs except the forms that are required for the addon.

 

<form labelId="pdftoolkit.aspect.signed.search.type"
    				descriptionId="pdftoolkit.aspect.signed.search.description"
    				id="signedpdfsearch">cm:content</form>
<form labelId="pdftoolkit.aspect.encrypted.search.type"
    				descriptionId="pdftoolkit.aspect.encrypted.search.description"
    				id="encryptedpdfsearch">cm:content</form>
