I want to add some custom categories to our existing alfresco application. I would prefer to do this in a way that I can do this only once (I mean not via the admin gui) and not via an sql script which adds these in the database.
Is there any way to do this ?
I tried to add our custom categories to the categories.xml as a new child of cm:generalclassifiable but when i restart the application i do not see my new categories. What am i doing wrong ? Any help (or other ideas on how to do this) would be greatly appreciated.
An example of my categories.xml attempt to add new categories :
This depends on the database you are using. Try dropping it completely (the database). Alfresco should re-create it upon next restart (like it did during first install) or there should be a script somewhere to re-create it.
Thanks for your help. I use MySQL. I coundn't found how to drop the database.
Finally I found another way that works, by re-instaling tomocat, but I would interested in founding how to drop or clean the database. I would appreciate it, if you had any further information about the above or if you could specify the path of the database.
in INSTALLATION\extras\databases\mysql\ of tomcat directory, we have db_remove.sql (and correpsonding .bat file on windows). It drops the database from MySQL. After that, to recreate the db, run db_setup.sql or .bat file.
I am new to Alfresco and have set up my basic structure but am unable to set up custom categories. There is nothing on Alfresco Help that I can find. There are lots of exchanges/posts on the forum but nothing that shows how to add custom categories using the admin gui. Can you please tell me how to do it or where the instructions reside. If you cannot do it through the admin gui, then please push me to instructions on how to do it on the backend.
