Custom aspect not working

Question asked by onno182 on Oct 5, 2015

I am having trouble getting a custom aspect to work with Alfresco.

The custom aspect is displayed in the 'Manage Aspects' window, and I can add it.  However, after it is added, and I go to the 'Edit Properties' window, nothing is displayed from the aspect.

What am I doing wrong?.

marmavastgoed-model-context.xml:


<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<!DOCTYPE beans PUBLIC '-//SPRING//DTD BEAN//EN' 'http://www.springframework.org/dtd/spring-beans.dtd'>

            </list>
        </property>
    </bean>

alfresco/web-extension/share-config-custom.xml:

I have added
<aspect name="mv:project" />
to the aspects element within
<config evaluator="string-compare" condition="DocumentLibrary" replace="true">
as so:


      <aspects>
         <!– Aspects that a user can see –>
         <visible>
            <aspect name="cm:generalclassifiable" />
            <aspect name="cm:complianceable" />
            <aspect name="cm:dublincore" />
            <aspect name="cm:effectivity" />
            <aspect name="cm:summarizable" />
            <aspect name="cm:versionable" />
            <aspect name="cm:templatable" />
            <aspect name="cm:emailed" />
            <aspect name="emailserver:aliasable" />
            <aspect name="cm:taggable" />
            <aspect name="app:inlineeditable" />
            <aspect name="cm:geographic" />
            <aspect name="exif:exif" />
            <aspect name="audio:audio" />
            <aspect name="cm:indexControl" />
            <aspect name="dp:restrictable" />
            <aspect name="mv:project" />
         </visible>

         <!– Aspects that a user can add. Same as "visible" if left empty –>
         <addable>
         </addable>

         <!– Aspects that a user can remove. Same as "visible" if left empty –>
         <removeable>
         </removeable>
      </aspects>



And within the same config patent, the following in the forms tags:


      <forms>
         <!– Default form configuration used on the document details and edit metadata pages –>
         <form>
            <field-visibility>
               <show id="mv:name"  />
            </field-visibility>
            <appearance>
               <field id="mv:name" label-id="prop.mv_name" />
            </appearance>
         </form>

         <!– Document Library pop-up Edit Metadata form –>
         <form id="doclib-simple-metadata">
            <field-visibility>
               <show id="mv:name" />
            </field-visibility>
            <appearance>
               <field id="mv:name" label-id="prop.mv_name" />
            </appearance>
         </form>

         <!– Document Library Inline Edit form –>
         <form id="doclib-inline-edit">
            <field-visibility>
               <show id="mv:name" />
            </field-visibility>
            <appearance>
               <field id="mv:name" label-id="prop.mv_name" />
            </appearance>
         </form>
      </forms>
