Re: Most Viewed and Liked Documents in alfresco

First of all, it is really not recommended to access the Alfresco database at a low level. What is wrong with just using the APIs that Alfresco provides for accessing the creator, creation date and name of a document? You can even use Alfresco query features to filter out any documents created by the System or admin users...

There is - by default and without any customisation - no tracking of the "most viewed" documents, so you cannot query for that out-of-the-box. The "like" rating is stored as a property on the document itself, so you can simply to a query for that and sort based on the value. The property in question should be cm:likesRatingSchemeCount.

If you are using java , than you can use the nodeService to get the details of property.

if javascript than you can simply, use["cm:likesRatingSchemeCount"].

Re: Most Viewed and Liked Documents in alfresco


I know this thread is old and I haven't figured out a suitable solution. However I got "closer". One can count the "ratings" associations. This way there is no filter for the node-type that was rated/liked, but at least this helps to somehow aggregate the amount of ratings/likes a node ("with a name" and "of any kind") got.

SELECT parent_node_id AS nodeDbId, nodeName.string_value AS nodeName, COUNT(parent_node_id) AS likes
FROM public.alf_child_assoc AS assocs
JOIN alf_node AS nodes ON (parent_node_id =
JOIN alf_node_properties nodeName ON ( = nodeName.node_id AND nodeName.qname_id IN (SELECT id FROM alf_qname WHERE local_name = 'name'))
JOIN alf_qname AS assocType ON ( = assocs.type_qname_id AND assocType.local_name = 'ratings')
GROUP BY parent_node_id, nodeName.string_value
