A site's data-lists view lists every available data-list. Could a datalist be visible only to specified site?
Thanks in advance.
No, not without a significant customization.
Data lists content models are global. You would need something to say, "These specific data lists are only to be used for these specific sites" and then the data list component would have to be updated to use that list to find all available data lists for the current site rather than just looking for all data list instances globally.
I like the feature idea, though. I think it would be useful.
Thinking more about this...
One idea for this feature would be to be able to go into a site and set an option like, "This site uses all available data lists" or, alternatively, "This site only leverages the following data lists" and then you'd select which data lists you want to expose for this site.
Then, the data list component would check with that option and decide which data lists to expose.
Of course, this approach would still expose all data lists to all sites unless a specific site chose not to. If what you really want is a completely private type of data list, there's not really a good way to do that.
I could see this feature being really useful for installations where there are hundreds of types of data lists, but each site only uses a small subset of those.
Thank you for your replies.
I don not see how i could customize that. If it worth elaborating more on this, please do so.
Meanwhile, our goal is to have a type where users (multi or not) select from a predefined list of values, that can be edited by the site's admin, and not viewed by all sites.
Furthermore, our ultimate goal is to sync fields of type category of a drupal site, and alfresco's custom field - something. Any ideas how this could be done nicely?
In any case, specifying the availability of datalists per site, would be a nice feature in alfresco.
There are multiple modules that can be used to integrate Alfresco with Drupal. Most are based on CMIS. Go to drupal.org and do a search for CMIS and you'll find them.
I haven't worked with those modules in many years so I don't know how well they are being maintained at this point.
