a!cmiGetObjectIdByPath() Function

Function

a!cmiGetObjectIdByPath( scsExternalSystemKey, usePerUserCredentials, atomPubUrl, repositoryId, path )

Retrieves the object id of a CMIS object based on the value given as the path parameter.

Parameters

Keyword Type Description

scsExternalSystemKey

Text

The key from the Third Party Credentials admin console page that corresponds to the set of credentials that should be used to authenticate.

usePerUserCredentials

Boolean

If true the credentials set in the Third-Party Credentials settings page by the current user running the expression will be used. If false the site-wide credential values will be used.

atomPubUrl

Text

The Atom Pub URL of the CMIS target system.

repositoryId

Text

The repository id on the CMIS target system.

path

Text

The CMIS path of the object. The meaning of the path is defined by the CMIS server. For example, /folder1/folder2/mydocument3.

Returns

The function returns the standard connector result dictionary described in the main Connectors page.

If successful, the result field contains the CMIS object id at the given path.

Usage considerations

If called multiple times in the same expression with the same parameters, only one query is made to the data store when the expression is evaluated and the result is reused for each identical call. This caching only applies within a single expression evaluation. Return values are not cached in separate expressions, or in separate evaluations of the same expression.

Examples

Copy and paste an example into an Appian Expression Editor to experiment with it.

Get a CMIS object ID for a given path

This example returns the object id for the given path if the query is successful. Otherwise, it returns a message with the error encountered.

Replace the <path> text with a valid path in CMIS, e.g. /folderName.
