    hi, which display template do i need in my services.conf (simple api endpoint) to generate json objects or arrays instead of strings?
    CollectiveAccess
    @collectiveaccess
    simpleapi only generates strings at the moment
    strings in a json wrapper to be exact
    but the generated content itself are just strings
    Barbara Krautgartner
    @babslgam
    is there a proper way to get all objects with all their details?
    CollectiveAccess
    @collectiveaccess
    You should look at http://docs.collectiveaccess.org/wiki/Web_Service_API for the general services API

    Hi, I'm pretty new to building advanced search forms in Providence and how to best use the 'Browse' function. First question - is there any more wiki advice on searching and browsing except for the 'Searching and Browsing' page? Second - I'm assuming the the items listed in 'Browse' be defined? Where is the editor for it?
    CollectiveAccess
    @collectiveaccess
    You can configure the browse in the browse.conf file
    The search syntax is described here: http://docs.collectiveaccess.org/wiki/Search_Syntax
    We are starting a push to create a new set of non-wiki, narrative documentation
    If you have specific questions on search and browse (or anything else really) write them down and send them to us, and we'll try to answer them in these new docs
    or we'll just answer them :-)

    Hi @collectiveaccess, another question before I start compiling a list of queries into one doc (should I send it via the support forum?) Is there a way to export from Browse? E.g. If I want to search for entities with a 'donor' role and then export that to excel.. would be easier for staff to do it like that rather than using a search syntax
    CollectiveAccess
    @collectiveaccess
    Send the list to me please (seth@collectiveaccess.org)
    Yes, you can export from browse just the same as from search
    there's an icon on the upper right hand side of the search and browse results that reveals all of the options
    they include export to configured formats with mappings (eg. XML based formats) as well as Excel, Word, TAB, CSV, etc
    jessica-s
    @jessica-s
    No worries. Hmm I don't have any icons on the Browse page, only in Search and Advanced Search..

    I'm trying to configure a display to show a relationship (interstitial) field and I can't figure out how to do this properly. Can you please help?
    CollectiveAccess
    @collectiveaccess
    What sort of display is it? And what sort of relationship?
    michalfrankl
    @michalfrankl
    ca_objects_x_objects; It's an object display and I'm trying to format the Related objects field.
    CollectiveAccess
    @collectiveaccess
    try ^ca_objects_x_objects.<related_field_code>
    does that not work?
    michalfrankl
    @michalfrankl
    No, that was of course my first try...
    CollectiveAccess
    @collectiveaccess
    what field is it?
    michalfrankl
    @michalfrankl
    Remar, it's a field we have defined added to the metadata schema.
    Remark
    CollectiveAccess
    @collectiveaccess
    ok
    Does ^ca_objects_x_objects.relation_id display anything?
    michalfrankl
    @michalfrankl
    Yes, it returns the number.
    Strange, I'll check the metadata element and the content again.
    CollectiveAccess
    @collectiveaccess
    Do you have any other metadata attributes configured? If so can you try outputting them?

    Hi, we currently have staff trialling our Providence system - users have been able to create sets by selecting searched objects, and then edit & delete via batch editing. However, they are unable to search for those sets back in Object > Search. See the top image in link for example: http://imgur.com/a/Cbfoe - you can see in the bottom image that the set definitely exists. Is there something I've missed in the set up? All elements relating to sets have been checked in Access Control so I'm not sure what the issue is.
    CollectiveAccess
    @collectiveaccess
    What version is this again? There were bugs around set searches in some versions but this should be fixed now
