ifresco Profiler – Alfresco standard plugin available

For the ifresco Profiler there is now a free Alfresco standard plug-in available.

The standard plug-in allows the upload of documents through the ifresco Profiler into any Alfresco / ifresco repository. With that only the standard fields and the standard content type for documents of Alfresco is used. So it isn’t required to install an additional content model. The standard plug-in is free available and therefor “out of the box” usable with every Alfresco server. With it the ifresco Profiler functions can be tested together with Alfresco without additional outlay.

Supported fields / functions:

  • Filename / title (required) – The name of the document in Alfresco matches the title and not allowed fields get replaced with “_”.
  • Description (optional) – long text description of the document content
  • Alfresco destination-folder (required) – selection of the Alfresco destination folder in which the document should be stored.
  • Tags (optional) – Tags are keywords to classify a document and to directly list all documents marked with it later on. Existing tags can be chosen and new ones can be added.

Title – rules: The standard plug-in installs also the XML-file “titlerules_StandardPlugin.xml”. In this file dynamically createable fields get defined as well as rules to automatically generate the document title. The selection of the rule is done via “Type / Subtype”. A mask with fields – with the types: Text, date, version, year gets generated from it and shown at the profiling.

Type-ahead searching for Alfresco folders – Through the search field existing folders can be found fast via the input of one or more search terms. A part string search of the with AND linked terms is done and the search results offered for selection as a list. The search term for the folder has to contain at least 3 characters.

AutoOCR version 1.10.11 – run subsequent processing through DLL

With the version 1.10.9 a new function was implemented to run a subsequent action after the OCR and the creation of the destination file. This could take place at monitored folders as well as at the processing via web-services as C# or VB.NET scripts.

With the AutoOCR version 1.10.11 this possibility got further extended – Now it is also possible to use external DLL’s to run subsequent functions.

Via a checkbox it can be switched between source code (script) and DLL processing and via a selective list the DLL can be chosen.

For that there is a new interface action IAction2 which is inherited from IAction. For the DLL to be available to choose it has to be copied into the AutoOCR installation folder. All DLL’s which end with %NAME%.AutoOCRPlugin.dll get referenced. Please keep in mind that with the installation of AutoOCR as windows service no message boxes or other user interactions are possible and therefor can’t be used.

For the additional tab to show up and be configurable AutoOCR has to be started with the commandline parameter /ShowAction.
