Is it possible to store data-lists items not on sites?

Jump to solution

Hello,

I see that I can get "Data Lists" page by a link "share/page/data-lists" but buttons "New List" and "New Item" is inactive there and I can't add new List. In all tutorials describes situation when data-lists only on site. I use "Alfresco 5.2 community edition".

Thanks,

Igor

Hi,

To do so, you have to follow the following steps:

  1. Identify the web script that is used to deliver the content by enabling surfBug tool ( In your case, it's the /components/data-lists/datalists)
  2. Identify what part of the web script need changing to achieve the customization, 
  3. Create your version of  the part thats need customization to achieve what you want to do.
  4. Use a Surf Extension module to define the web script override.

And make sure that the DataGrid of each datalist work too.

I hope that helps you

User need to have specific role on particular site.If user does not have write permission on site, than user can not create datalist item inside datalist.Assign permission , you will be able to see that button is active.

Yes its possible, but the default alfresco UI will allows you to store it on specific location only.If you would like to change the path, you need to customize the it.Or create a new code(webscript) for CURD of data list which will allow you to save datalist item on new place.You need to make changes in UI as well/

I get it I need to make changes in UI, but unfortunately I haven't found any examples or tutorials for that. Could you give a tip where I can find any example? Thanks.
