Search on property of custom type

Jump to solution

Dear everyone,

I've defined custom type (custom model) with some property

mc:refNumber: d:text

-mc:customerName: d:text

-mcSmiley TongueroductCode : d:text

When end-user create new document on custom type, he or she want to search on some property at custom type, I've try advance search with filter, but filter only allow property with type as number (not d:text).

Anyone can me some advices?

Many thanks!

Are you using the share simple search, the text field in the upper right corner?

If that is the case, then you wont get the result, as it does a search agains properties name, subject, description and the document's content.

You can find some information on how to change that behaviour in this blog post https://www.bluefishgroup.com/insights/ecm/adding-metadata-fields-to-simple-search-and-live-search-w...

Filter does support properties with type d:text - if they have been configured in the data model to support faceting. You need to add the "facetable" element to the "index" section on a property and set it to true to tell SOLR to prepare the necessary index fields to support filtering.

This documentation page explains what "facetable" means and how it is specified.

It would be great to know what kind of API / progamming language you are using to do that. Depending on that, I could tell you if it is done the right way. It looks like Java code to me, but from a Java API perspective the code is incorrect as there is no API that supports properties to be provided as a <String, String/Serializable> map...

Dear Mr Axel Faust,

I'm using java with cmis 1.1, this is my code (below). I've search by programming is OK but I want end-user can search from share UI.

Session cmisSession = getCmisSession();

String fileName = file.getName();

// create a map of properties if one wasn't passed in
if (props == null) {
props = new HashMap<String, Object>();
}

// Add the object type ID if it wasn't already
if (props.get("cmisSmiley SurprisedbjectTypeId") == null) {
props.put("cmisSmiley SurprisedbjectTypeId", "D:mc:loanDocs");
// ,P:scSmiley TongueroductRelated,P:cm:titled
}
// Add the name if it wasn't already
if (props.get("cmis:name") == null) {
props.put("cmis:name", fileName);
}
props.put("mc:refNumber","142");
props.put("mc:refName", "142");
props.put("mc:customerName", "Le Trong Oanh");
props.put("mc:idCardNumber", "12345678910");
props.put("mc:loanTerm", "6");
props.put("mc:contractNumber", "123456789012345");
props.put("mcSmiley TongueroductCode", "tragop");
props.put("mc:loanAmount", 500000);

ContentStream contentStream = cmisSession.getObjectFactory().createContentStream(fileName, file.length(),
fileType, new FileInputStream(file));
Document document = null;
try {
document = parentFolder.createDocument(props, contentStream, null);
System.out.println("Created new document: " + document.getId());
} catch (CmisContentAlreadyExistsException ccaee) {
document = (Document) cmisSession.getObjectByPath(parentFolder.getPath() + "/" + fileName);
System.out.println("Document already exists: " + fileName);
}

return document;
