Ad hoc search engines

Document (node) search engines

Thanks to this module, searching for documents becomes easy. Using the mouse, you can define any document search engine. You choose the document attributes (or nodes only) to use as search data. Attributes can have defined default values, which can optionally be modified by the user. You can specify whether the values ​​you enter are less than, greater than, equal to, or partially match the given attribute. The user can enter a string of values ​​separated by a delimiter and the system will check if the document attribute matches one of them. The search results are displayed in the way you define. You can choose which attributes of your search items will be displayed and in what order. If you need more advanced processing of the results, you can also format their display using Javascript expressions. This will allow, for example, to change the formatting of the date, create links in the search results, replace the values ​​with appropriate labels and many, many other activities limited only by the capabilities of the Javascript language. The search results allow you to perform many useful operations.

  • You can save them to Excel format, and then subject them to any processing in a spreadsheet,
  • Selected (or all) elements can be downloaded to the disk, sent by e-mail, opened in new tabs or merged into one PDF document (documents),
  • You can sort by selected attribute.

Task finder

Task search engines, similarly to document search engines, allow you to search for tasks for active or completed workflow processes in Alfresco. Thanks to this, you can monitor the status of entrusted tasks on an ongoing basis.

SQL search engines

If the above mechanisms are not entirely satisfactory to you, you can create search engines based on SQL queries. Enter SQL query and save as search engine. Thanks to this, users will be able to see the results of even the most complex queries to the Alfresco system.
