- On Redhat's file system, create a folder called 'Test' and create three files with qualified names underneath it
(eg. Test1.txt, Test2.txt and Test3.txt).
- Add a dot '.' in front of the first file, eg. ".Test1.txt". This file will now be treated by Linux as a hidden file, so the import tool will skip it.
- Add ".v1" to the back of the second file, eg. "Test2.txt.v1". We are turning this file into a "naked" version file (with no corresponding actual file), so the tool will skip it.
- In log4j.properties, turn Bulk Import debugging on:
- Start Alfresco
- In Share, create a folder called 'Test' under 'Company Home'.
- Use the GUI Bulk Filesystem Import Tool (http://localhost:8080/alfresco/service/bulkfsimport) to import all three files under the 'Test' folder into Alfresco. Example bulk import setting:
The skipped files (.Test1.txt and Test2.txt.v1) should be reported in some sort of shape or form, i.e. maybe in the log or on the GUI screen.
The tool went on silently without reporting what's been skipped. On the final report, you'll see the Scanned count to be 3 (files) but the Read count to be 1 (file), however it doesn't tell you which ones have been skipped. In case of thousands of files, the user has no way of knowing which files were skipped unless he checks every single loaded files.
