PDMLink : change the author of a document

PDMLink : change the author of a document

Hello

my business has a "strange" request:

they would like that an administrator is able to change the author of a document until it reach a specific state.

I'm not such a big fan for tracability reason, but I'm wondering if it's possible nevertheless. I couldn't find a way with orgadmin.

we're using PDMLink 9.1

Can someone help me ?

Thank you

Benoit

Re: PDMLink : change the author of a document

Hi,

here is the process:

1/ user ID123 create a new document

Data for this document:

CreatedBy = ID123

ModifiedBy = ID123

DateCreation = 02/03/2011

2/ An administrator change the authorId from ID123 to ID789

Data for this document:

CreatedBy = ID789

ModifiedBy = ID789

DateCreation = 02/03/2011

Do you think it's possible ?

Re: PDMLink : change the author of a document

I write sample java code, for change creator attribute, you can test them from eclipse

package wt.vc;

import wt.doc.WTDocument;
import wt.fc.Persistable;
import wt.fc.PersistenceHelper;
import wt.fc.ReferenceFactory;
import wt.fc.WTReference;
import wt.org.WTPrincipalReference;
import wt.util.WTException;

/**

*/
public class CreatorModifier {

public static void main(String[] args) {
// document must be checkout
WTDocument doc = (WTDocument) getObjectByRefString("VR:wt.doc.WTDocument:16168148");
wt.org.WTUser p = (wt.org.WTUser) getObjectByRefString("OR:wt.org.WTUser:4287687");

assignIterationCreator(doc, (WTPrincipalReference) getRefObjByObj(p));
try {
PersistenceHelper.manager.save(doc);
} catch (WTException e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}

}

public static Iterated assignIterationCreator(Iterated iterated,
WTPrincipalReference wtprincipalreference)

{

try {
iterated.getIterationInfo().setCreator(wtprincipalreference);
} catch (Exception e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}
return null;
}

public static Persistable getObjectByRefString(String refString) {
Persistable result = null;
try {
ReferenceFactory refFact = new wt.fc.ReferenceFactory();
WTReference ref = refFact.getReference(refString);
result = ref.getObject();
} catch (WTException e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}
return result;
}

public static WTReference getRefObjByObj(Persistable obj) {
try {

ReferenceFactory refFact = new wt.fc.ReferenceFactory();
return refFact.getReference(obj);
} catch (WTException e) {
e.printStackTrace();
return null;
}
}

}
