The following known issues are associated with this release:
Tightened Validation of Content Models
The fix to ALF-680 means that some custom content models that may have previously worked with earlier releases will now be rejected on start up of the Alfresco server with the following message
org.alfresco.service.cmr.dictionary.DictionaryException: 06010000 Cannot define class c as namespace n is not defined by model m
It is now only possible to create model elements whose namespace is also defined by the containing model. The reason for this tightened validation is that previously it was possible to define duplicate model elements (in particular properties, associations) without knowing it.
In order to fix any failing content models you will need to
Edit all constraint, type, aspect, child association, association and property definitions in the model XML file so that their name uses a namespace prefix mapped to a unique namespace defined by the model.
Start up the Alfresco Server to ensure that the new model is now valid.
To fix up the database:
Create a new node of each of the fixed types with each of the fixed aspect types and fixed association types to ensure that all the new qname_ids now exist in the database.
For changed node types and aspects
Look up the old and new qname_ids
Update the qname IDs in the alf_node and alf_node_aspects tables directly
For changed child associations, associations and properties
Look up the old qname_id of the child association, association or property
Look up the node_id of the owning node type or aspects from the alf_node or alf_node_aspects tables by qname_id
Update the qname_id of all the child associations, associations or properties with that old qname_id and node_id
