6 Archive Services

The following sections describe the services available when using and customizing Oracle Content Server archives. The location for specific archive services are listed within each individual service.

6.1 About Archive Services

Note:

The most commonly used services have more extensive descriptions.

A typical service entry is similar to the following:

GET_ARCHIVED_FILE
FileService 34 null null null !csUnableToDownloadFile
3:computeDocID::0:!csUnableToDownload(dDocName)
5:QarchivedDoc:FILE_DOC_INFO:2:!csItemNoLongerInHistory
3:checkSecurity:FILE_DOC_INFO:0:!csUnableToDownload(dDocName)
3:createArchiveFileName::0:null

In this example:

Each element of a service action is separated by a colon (:).

Important:

All services have at least one required parameter. The IdcService parameter takes the name of the service as its argument. If other parameters are required, they are noted in the description of the service.

For details about a service's attributes and actions, see Section 3, "Customizing Services."

Important:

Most archive services use the underlying method used by EDIT_ARCHIVEDATA and consequently require the EditItems parameter set to the appropriate value. The user interface usually controls what is put into this parameter. If necessary, the user should exercise archive services through the user interface with Filter Debug flags enabled to determine how the values should be set. By using the Filter Debug flags, the request as it is sent to the server can be captured.

6.2 Archive Services

Unless noted otherwise, all services listed here are the ArchiveService Service Class. Frequently used services are marked with an asterisk (*) in the following list.

The following services are described in this section:

6.2.1 ADD_ARCHIVE

Service that adds an archive to an archive collection. The most likely errors are mismatched parameters or when an archive name is not unique.

Location: IdcHomeDir/resources/core/templates/std_services.htm

Additional Required Service Parameters

  • IDC_Name: The name of the collection. If you are using the default collection, this is the name of the Oracle Content Server instance.

  • aArchiveName: The archive name.

  • aArchiveDescription: The menu label for the Oracle Content Server instance (used on the interface). For example, Master_on_server01.

Example

To add an archive to a master Oracle Content Server instance, the required parameters will be:

IdcService=ADD_ARCHIVE
IDC_Name=Master_on_server01
aArchiveName=archive_test
aArchiveDescription=this is an archive test

6.2.2 ADD_COLLECTION

Service that creates a new archive collection. The most likely error is an instance menu label that is not unique.

Caution:

Using duplicate IDC_Name collection names will cause data corruption. The Archiver cannot be used to move or copy data between two collections that share the same IDC_Name. To do so will corrupt the data on the target system.

Location: IdcHomeDir/resources/core/templates/std_services.htm

Additional Required Service Parameters

  • IDC_Name: The name of the collection.

  • aCollectionLocation: The absolute path to the collection location. Use the slash as the file separator.

  • aVaultDir: The absolute path to the vault directory. Use the slash as the file separator.

  • aWeblayoutDir: The absolute path to the weblayout directory. Use the slash as the file separator.

Example

IdcService=ADD_COLLECTION
IDC_Name=new_collection
aCollectionLocation=c:/oracle/archives
aVaultDir=c:/oracle/value
aWeblayoutDir=c:/oracle/weblayout

6.2.3 ADD_PROXIEDCOLLECTION

Service used to add an archive collection from another server.

Location: IdcHomeDir/resources/core/templates/std_services.htm

Additional Required Service Parameters

  • psIDC_Name: The name of the provider (proxied connection).

  • IDC_Name: The name of the archive collection.

6.2.4 CANCEL_ARCHIVE

Service that cancels the current archive request.

Location: IdcHomeDir/resources/core/templates/std_services.htm

6.2.5 CHECKIN_ARCHIVE

Service that checks a content item revision into an archive.

Access Level: Admin (8)

Location: IdcHomeDir/resources/core/templates/std_services.htm

  • This service executes one of the following subservices, based on parameters and conditional variables:

    • DELETE_BYREV: If the Action parameter is Delete and the content item revision exists in the system.

    • DELETE_BYCLASS: If the Action parameter is Delete and the content item revision does not exist in the system.

    • CHECKIN_NEW_SUB: If the content item does not exist in the system, the Action parameter is not Delete, and the conditional variable IsPublish is set to true.

    • INSERT_NEW: If the content item does not exist in the system, the Action parameter is not Delete, and the conditional variable IsPublish is set to false or not specified.

    • UPDATE_DOCINFO_BYREV: If the Action parameter is not Delete and the primaryFile parameter is not empty. Additionally, the conditional variable IsPublish must be true or the content item revision must exist in the system.

    • UPDATE_BYREV: If the Action parameter is not Delete and the primaryFile parameter is empty. Additionally, the conditional variable IsPublish must be true or the content item revision must exist in the system.

      Important:

      The IsPublish variable is set by the server when a workflow or project is unregistered. This value cannot be set as a parameter or as a configuration entry in this service.
  • If the IsNative parameter is true, the service executes one of the following subservices:

    • DELETE_BYREV: If the content item exists in the Revisions table and Action parameter is Delete.

    • UPDATE_BYREV: If the content item exists in the Revisions table, the content has not been deleted, and the Action parameter is Update.

    • INSERT_NATIVE: If the content item does not exist in the server and the action parameter is not Delete.

  • If a content item already exists in the system and has not been deleted, the server cannot update or insert the entry; an error will be thrown.

  • The most likely error is when the content item name is not unique or when the service is unable to check in the specified file.

  • A primary file is required. If you do not want to check in a primary file and want to check in only metadata, an additional parameter must be included and a configuration entry added in the Oracle Content Server instance.

  • Required additional parameter (metadata checkin):

    createPrimaryMetaFile=true
    
  • Required Oracle Content Server configuration entry (metadata checkin):

    AllowPrimaryMetaFile=true
    Example:
    IdcService=CHECKIN_ARCHIVE
    Action=insert
    dDocTitle=my_test
    dDocAuthor=sysadmin
    dDocType=ADACCT
    dSecurityGroup=Public
    createPrimaryMetaFile=true
    

Additional Required Service Parameters

  • Action: Must be set to a value as specified earlier.

  • dDocName: The Content ID for the content item.

    • If Content ID auto generation is enabled, this parameter is not required. If dDocName is defined, it will override the auto generated Content ID.

    • The Content ID cannot contain spaces or invalid characters ;/ \?:@&=+"#%<>*~|[ ].

  • dDocAuthor: The content item author (contributor).

  • dDocTitle: The content item title.

  • dSecurityGroup: The security group such as Public or Secure.

  • dDocAccount: The account for the content item. Required only if accounts are enabled.

  • primaryFile: The absolute path to the location of the file as seen from the server. Use the slash as the file separator.

    A primary file must be specified unless checking in metadata only. If an alternate file is specified with the primary file, the content refinery will convert the alternate file. Otherwise, the primary file will be converted.

    • If a primary file is not specified, you can use a metafile in its place. Only one metafile can exist though for each content item (a primary AND alternate meta file cannot coexist).

    • If both a primary and alternate file is specified, their extensions must be different.

    • doFileCopy: 1 (true): The file will not be deleted from the hard drive after checkin. 0 (false): The file will be removed from your hard drive after checkin.

  • Required custom fields: Custom metadata fields that are required must also be specified.

Optional Service Parameters

  • alternateFile: The alternate file for conversion.

    • Only one metafile can exist though for each content item (a primary AND alternate meta file cannot coexist.)

    • If an alternate file is specified with the primary file, the content refinery will convert the alternate file. Otherwise, the primary file will be converted.

  • dCreateDate: The date the content item was created. By default, this is the current date.

  • dRevLabel: The revision label for the content item. If set, the label will be used to locate the specified revision.

  • doDocSecurityCheck: Enables the document security check. By default this entry is false.

  • dPublishState: The publish state. If the content item exists in the system, this parameter must be empty.

  • dReleaseState: The release state (used to indicate the web state of the revision).

  • IsNative: This is a configuration entry but can be specified as a parameter.

    • If the IsNative parameter is true and the content item exists in the system, the specified Content ID (dDocName) must coincide with the content name in the database. Otherwise, the command is not native and the service will be determined as if the IsNative parameter is false.

    • If the IsNative parameter is true and the Action parameter is Delete, the content item must exist in the system. Otherwise, the command is not native and the service will be determined as if the IsNative parameter is false.

  • webViewableFile: If the content is marked as web-viewable the file format is determined by the parameter webViewableFile:format and the extension is determined by the parameter dWebExtension. Otherwise, the extension and file format are determined by the parameters dExtension and dFormat, respectively. The user can override the file format and extension by overriding these parameters.

  • Optional custom fields: Custom metadata fields that are not required can also be specified.

Service used to edit the data as specified in the EditItems parameter.

Location: IdcHomeDir/resources/core/templates/std_services.htm

Important:

Most archive services use the underlying method used by EDIT_ARCHIVEDATA and consequently require the EditItems parameter set to the appropriate value. The user interface usually controls what is put into this parameter. If necessary, the user should exercise these services through the user interface with Filter Debug flags enabled to determine how the values should be set. By using the Filter Debug flags, the request as it is sent to the server can be captured.

Additional Required Service Parameters

  • EditItems: A comma-delimited list of keys that are used to define the archive. Any key used must also be specified as a parameter. For example, if EditItems=aValueMaps, then aValueMaps is a required parameter to this service.

Additional Required Service Parameters

  • aBatchFile: The path and name of the batch file to be executed.

6.2.16 EXPORT_ARCHIVE

Service that exports an archive.

  • The export will read in the archive's definition file and will follow the export rules specified. This includes specifying the export query, whether users or document configuration information should be exported (or both), and whether previous batch files should be deleted.

  • The Oracle Content Server system executes this service asynchronously. The server must be running for the services to be even executed and that IdcCommand will exit announcing success, when actually all it has done is told the server to perform the action.

    Note:

    The EXPORT_ARCHIVE service only starts the archive export and provides confirmation that the request to start the export has been made. No notification is sent regarding the status or completion of the archive export. A custom component could be created to provide notification of the status and completion of the archive export.
  • The Oracle Content Server system can only export archives one at a time. A batch file that has multiple exports will declare success on the first and failure on all subsequent commands until it has finished the first. A batch file should have only one export in it, and some external process will need to determine that the action has completed before issuing another export command.

Location: IdcHomeDir/resources/core/templates/std_services.htm

Additional Required Service Parameters

  • IDC_Name: The name of the collection. If you are using the default collection, this is the name of the Oracle Content Server instance.

Optional Service Parameters

  • aDoDelete:

    • 1 (true): Revisions are deleted after successful export.

    • 0 (false): Revisions are not deleted after export.

Example

  • IdcCommand command file format (exports the archive archive_test in the collection Master_on_server01):

    # To export an archive
    IdcService=EXPORT_ARCHIVE
    aArchiveName=archive_test
    IDC_Name=Master_on_server01
    dataSource=RevisionIDs
    
  • HDA format with optional parameter:

    @Properties LocalData
    IdcService=EXPORT_ARCHIVE
    aArchiveName=archive_test
    IDC_Name=Master_on_server01
    dataSource=RevisionIDs
    aDoDelete=1
    @end
    

6.2.17 GET_ARCHIVECOLLECTIONS

Service that returns a list of all archive collections.

  • resultName: The result set name for the table content.

6.2.19 GET_ARCHIVED_FILE

Service that returns a specific rendition of an archived content item revision from an archive.

Given a dID or a dDocName and RevisionSelectionMethod parameter, the service determines the file name of a particular rendition of the revision and returns that file to the client.

The most likely errors are mismatched parameters or a request for a revision or rendition that does not exist.

Note:

It is recommended that dDocName be included in all requests for content items where the requester knows the dDocName. Error messages in the Oracle Content Server system assume that it is present, as do other features such as forms.

Location: IdcHomeDir/resources/core/templates/std_services.htm

Additional Required Service Parameters

Important:

Either the content item revision ID (dID) must be specified or a Content ID (dDocName) along with a RevisionSelectionMethod parameter must be defined.

Optional Service Parameters

  • dID: The generated content item revision ID.

    • If dID is not specified, dDocName and RevisionSelectionMethod must specified.

    • A rendition of the revision of the content item with this ID will be returned, if it exists, and the RevisionSelectionMethod parameter does not exist or has the value Specific.

  • dDocName: The content item identifier (Content ID).

    • If dDocName is not present, dID must be present and RevisionSelectionMethod must not be present.

    • If RevisionSelectionMethod is present, a rendition of a revision of the content item with this name will be returned, if it exists. If RevisionSelectionMethod is not present, dDocName will be used in error messages.

  • RevisionSelectionMethod: The revision selection method.

    • If present, dDocName must be present. The value of this variable is the method used to compute a dID from the specified dDocName. Its value can be Specific, Latest, or LatestReleased.

    • If the value is Specific, the dDocName is ignored, and dID is required and is used to get a rendition. If the value is Latest, the latest revision of the content item is used to compute the dID. If the value is LatestReleased, the latest released revision of the content item is used to compute the dID.

  • Rendition: The content item rendition. This parameter specifies the rendition of the content item and can be set to Primary, Web, or Alternate. If Rendition is not present, it defaults to Primary.

    • If the value is Primary, the primary rendition of the selected revision is returned.

    • If the value is Web, the web-viewable rendition of the selected revision is returned.

    • If the value is Alternate, the alternate rendition of the selected revision is returned.
