Installation

Extension Activation

Activate this extension by adding the following to your settings/override/site.ini.append.php:

Clear the caches

Clear eZ Publish Platform / eZ Publish Legacy caches (Required).

php ./bin/php/ezcache.php --clear-all;

Settings Customization

This extension provides a number of settings which affect the report generation process.

First create a settings override (global, siteaccess or extension) of file ezpcontenttreereport.ini.append.php.

Then customize the settings as required.

Required settings

This solution only requires one setting be customized, AdminUserSiteAccessName.

You are required to set your admin siteaccess name within the AdminUserSiteAccessName setting variable.

This is required because the solution uses this content to run the report generation using the admin siteaccess scope which again is required for the entire solution to work correctly.

Optional settings

You can customize the Content Tree Nodes to include in the report by configuring the ContentTreeNodeIDs[] setting array content.

You can exclude content tree subtrees from the report by configuring the ExcludedParentNodeIDs[] setting array content.

You can include or exclude content classes by configuring the ClassFilterType setting variable and ClassFilterArray[] setting array content.

You can exclude hidden nodes from the report by configuring the ExcludeHiddenNodes setting variable.

You can customize the report generated to include additional custom configured content object attribute content by configuring the ContentObjectAttributes[] setting array content.

Here is a simple example of the format expected / required for use within the ContentObjectAttributes[] setting array content:

ContentObjectAttributes[]=class_identifier;class_attribute_identifier;datatype_attribute_identifier;CSV Header Text Description

Here are a few example usages of the ContentObjectAttributes[] setting array content:

ContentObjectAttributes[]=folder;forward;content;Forward to Legacy / DocStudioContentObjectAttributes[]=folder;forwarding_path;content;DocStudio Forwarding PathContentObjectAttributes[]=file;file;original_filename;File FilenameContentObjectAttributes[]=image;image;original_filename;Image Filename

Note: Content class, Content class attribute and Datatype attribute identifiers must only be lower case but the CSV Header Text Description can be in mixed case (and probably should be since the rest of the csv header fields also used First char upper case mixed case text strings).

ContentObjectAttributes[] Attribute usage reference documentation

You can use any attribute / datatype possible using this settings.

Here is some documentation related to the usage of the above settings values within the content objects and datatypes (re: identifiers).
