Accessing document title, description and author name

Question asked by naresh on Jun 1, 2011
Latest reply on Jun 1, 2011 by naresh
What is the best way to access a document's title, description and author name using the CMIS interface? (I am using OpenCMIS).
  • For title, I would like a short phrase, e.g. "Introduction to CMIS". I was thinking of using cmis:name, but there seems to a minor glitch. When I upload a document to Alfresco, it sets cmis:name and cmis:contentStreamFileName to the filename, e.g. cmis-intro.pdf. However when I change the document's name from Alfresco's front-end, it not only changes the cmis:name but also the cmis:contentStreamFileName. I was not expecting the latter to change and don't know if it has any bad side-effects.

  • For description, I would like a short paragraph similar to what Alfreso allows in the document metadata. Is it possible to access this via CMIS?

  • For author name, I would like the full name (<First Name> <Last Name>). I don't see this anywhere in the CMIS response. The cmis:createdBy has the username, not the full name.
Please let me know what's the best way to get this information via CMIS. Any help or guidance is much appreciated!

Thanks.
