Working with the Centera Connector module

Test that the Centera Connector module is working correctly with Alfresco Content Services.
  1. Enable DEBUG logging for the Centera Connector components.

    For example:

    log4j.logger.org.alfresco.enterprise.repo.content.centera=DEBUG
    log4j.logger.org.alfresco.enterprise.repo.centera=DEBUG
  2. Add the xam:archived aspect to the share-config-custom.xml file.

    For example:

    <alfresco-config>
    
       <config evaluator="node-type" condition="cm:content">
    
          <forms>
             <form>
                <!-- 2 column template -->
    
                <edit-form />
     
                <field-visibility>
    
                <!-- aspect: cm:storeSelector -->
    
                <show id="cm:storeName" />
    
                <!-- aspect: xam:archive -->
                <show id="xam:dateArchived" for-mode="view" />
                <show id="xam:retainUntil" for-mode="view" />
                <show id="cm:content" for-mode="view" />
                </field-visibility>
    
                <appearance>
                   <!-- Store Selector -->
                   <field id="cm:storeName" label="Store Name" description="Content Store Name" />
                   <set id="xam-archive" appearance="bordered-panel" label="XAM Archived" />
                   <field id="xam:dateArchived" label="XAM Date Archived" set="xam-archive" />
                   <field id="xam:retainUntil" label="XAM Retain Until Date" set="xam-archive" />
                </appearance>
             </form>
          </forms>
       </config>
    
    <config evaluator="string-compare" condition="DocumentLibrary">
       <aspects>
             <visible>
                <aspect name="xam:archive" label="XAM Archive" />
             </visible>
       </aspects>
    </config>
    </alfresco-config>
  3. View the metadata for the document.

    The new store is shown as xamArchive and the retainedUntil date is set.

  4. Copy the ClipID, and then open the C-Clip using the JCASScript tool.

    For example:

    CASScript>clipopen EQM2GC012MC77e72B24N2MMFU59G418ACSAIE70BAS340TN3E1JJL
    
    Clip Properties:
    
      Name:                untitled
      Creation Date:       2013.11.27 01:35:09 GMT
      Size:                13474
      Number of Tags:      1
      Number of Blobs:     1
      Retention Class:    
      Retention Seconds:   86396
      Modified:            False
      EBR Enabled :        False
      Retention Hold:      False
    1. Check that the retention period was set.

      CASScript>clipattribs

    2. Check that the node and application properties have been copied over.

      Select the first tag of the opened C-Clip. For example:

      CASScript>tagfirst
      
      CASTag Properties:
      
       Name:                com.alfresco.content
       Has Blob:            True
       Blob Size:           13474

       Has Parent:          False
       Has Next Sibling:    False
       Has Child:           False

      Display all the attributes. For example:

      CASScript>tagattribs
      
      Number of attributes: 10
