I'm facing an issue with rules triggering in Alfresco (Community v5.2.0 (r135134-b14) schema 10 005).
In our installation, we are using the rules to:
- Communicate to other server components about what happens in Alfresco
- Prevent unwanted actions (like deleting some folders)
We faced multiple issues and random behaviors that we fixed with a lot of checks in our JS code but one "unsolvable" case remains.
We have a rule that is used to prevent people to rename or delete folders with a name starting by "_" , this rule only applies to elements that have the custom property 'gofastreventDelete' set to true.
The problem is : When we are doing something on an element in a folder starting by "_", the rules will trigger on the document but also on the parent folder.
A delete request is called :
16:58:31,244 WebDAV request DELETE on path /alfresco/webdav/Sites/_Groups/_Var%20dump%20land/content%20(2).mp4
Rules triggers on the document :
16:58:31,345 ==== STARTING SCRIPT SCRIPT SYNCHRONIZE ====
16:58:31,346 Script called on content (2).mp4 / 10651e68-7a35-4727-a1d1-f6e889805656
16:58:31,423 Request has been sent
16:58:31,423 Drupal answered OK
16:58:31,424 Closing XHR Object
16:58:31,424 ==== ENDING SCRIPT SCRIPT SYNCHRONIZE ====
But just after this, the rule to prevent to delete a folder starting with '_' is called, not on the document but on it's parent folder :
16:58:31,491 ==== STARTING SCRIPT SCRIPT PREVENT DELETE SPACE FOLDER ====
16:58:31,492 Script called on _Var dump land / eb8dc7e7-dd04-4a6a-8909-3c263e54e0e6
16:58:31,492 Edition of _Var dump land will lead to a crash.
And the transaction is rollbacked.
Do you think it's possible to stop propagation in the first script ?
Thanks for your help !
