I am a relatively new user to Alfresco. We are using Community Edition 4.2.f following the basic install instructions. I have been able to successfully create a rule to change the cm:versionLabel to 0.1 upon initial upload to a particular folder. However, when viewing the document properties, the "Last Version" still indicates 1. Additionally, when I attempt to upload a new minor version, I get an upload error.
What is the best way to change the default label from 1.0 to 0.1? It doesn't matter if it is system-wide or rule-based, we just need to have this functionality.
I've been wrestling this issue for over 2 weeks and finally found a simple solution in Share.
Create a Folder Rule with the following:
Remove Versionable Aspect Add Versionable Aspect Change cm:versionLabel to 0.1 Check Out (no destination folder required) Check In (as minor version)
This creates a locked document with a *hidden* version label. Manually upload a new version (same document is fine) and set it to a minor version. Document is then available with 0.1 as version label and with 0.1 as the last Version in the version history.
I implemented this on a folder as a Space Template, so that non-technical users don't need to do anything except create a new folder from the template. The document is then locked for editing by them and ready for the first 0.1 version to go in.
