I work on BPM801 and use Legacy Document List component (http://bpmwiki.blueworkslive.com/display/samples/Legacy+Document+Attach+Widget+(For+Next+generation+Coaches)+-+Release+2) for adding attachments. Files are stored in BPM database in table LSW_BPD_INSTANCE_DOCUMENTS. I need to be able to add attachments with the additional properties and search attachments by these properties (properties are stored in LSW_BPD_INSTANCE_DOC_PROP). That's why I want to add some textboxes to coach, the contents of which will be used to store or search for attachments. So I need to dynamically set the value of "matching / attach properties" -> here I do not know what to do.
I'll be grateful for a hint,

Re: Legacy Document List - dynamic "matching properties"2013-01-31T19:25:19Z in response to siatkiI'm surprised by this, but I looked at both the REST and JS APIs and I don't see any methods for changing the meta data assoicated with the files. You might be able to add it on your own to the "PROPS" table, but that would be unsupported.

If I may ask, what is it in the "legacy document" technology that you need to leverage that you wouldn't get from using the new CMIS technology? What are the factors that are causing you to look at the legacy document technologies?
Re: Legacy Document List - dynamic "matching properties"2013-02-01T08:55:12Z in response to kolbanThank you all for reply,
BPM does not provide ECM solutions in a box, and we do not consider buying such a system -> there is no need to have an advanced tool for data storage. As I heard, the only free solution is alfresco based on MySQL / Postgre, but what about compatibility with CMIS? Are there other options for easy document storage and use of box components BPM801?
Re: Legacy Document List - dynamic "matching properties"2013-02-01T13:16:27Z in response to kolbanReferring to the recommendation for ECM...
1. I installed Alfresco.
2. I connected through BPM.
3. I created Ajax service to search for documents.
4. I wrote static CMIS query to retrieve documents from the ECM (document list \ properties \ configuration \ query).
5. Everything works nicely, but...
1. how to add an additional "tags" to describe document(e.g. customer,complaint id...)
2. how to bind a document with an instance of the process? by "tags" with processID?
3. how to dynamically pass variables to query from text controls of coach to search documents by tags? I know that there is possible to use content filters in configuration of searach ajax service, but how to add new properties such as customer, complaint...
Thank you very much for your help
