CMIS inmemory server does not seem to support versioning

Question asked by kartech11 on Sep 4, 2018

I have started an inmemory alfresco CMIS instance locally. I am able to launch the CMIS Workbench and query against the instance. 


I am trying to create a document in the inmemory instance and I get the below error. Do I need to setup any confirm parameters for versioning to be enabled in the inmemory instance?


Error when createDocument is called, (I am passing as VersioningState as MAJOR)?

org.apache.chemistry.opencmis.commons.exceptions.CmisConstraintException: The versioning state flag is imcompatible to the type definition.
