Resolution: Won't Fix
Affects Version/s: 5.1.1
Fix Version/s: None
Component/s: Smart Folders
After following the documentation tutorial to create Smart folders, I observed that one cannot search for Smart Folders at the moment, e.g. by using a CMIS query and searching for all cmis:folder objects. As a smart folder is still of type cm:folder it should be searchable. I also observed that you cannot search for smart folders in Share.
You can browse directly to Smart Folders through CMIS workbench and Share. You just cannot search for them.
Steps to Reproduce
- Follow the documentation Smart Folder tutorial through step 4 to create Smart Folders. http://docs.alfresco.com/5.1/tasks/sf-tutorial-create.html
- Connect to Alfresco using CMIS workbench and query using 'SELECT * FROM cmis:folder'
- Note the lack of Smart Folders returned during the query
Smart Folders should be searchable
When following the documentation tutorial, you can see the Smart folder parent folder Insurance Claim returned. However, no Smart Folders are returned while querying for folders.
See attached CMIS query result.
This FAQ states:
"As a developer, I want to create a custom application. How can I use Smart Folders in my code?
Use standard Alfresco APIs. All custom uses of nodes, files, and folders apply."
Unfortunately search seems not to apply.
