Has anyone had any success sending requests to Senaite.JSONAPI using cURL??? All my cURL requests fail to get converted correctly into a Dictionary by the API. I think it has to do with escaped quotation marks in the BODY of the request, but it happens even when I call the request using the -d @data.jsonparameter style of POST calling with cURL.

@faytrow

And is there a proper syntax for creating multiple objects in 1 request? I tried using a format like

[
    {
        Object 1...
    },
    {
        Object 2...
    }
]

But it failed to converted into a proper list of dictionaries. Is there a better format?

Paul VanderWeele
@faytrow
It doesn't look like it can actually even take multiple objects. The function get_request_data() that creates the data expects a Dictionary, and throws an error when json.loads(data) returns a List type (List of Dictionaries) instead.

Is there any way to include a "Date of Analysis" in a 2Dimensional CSV instrument import (Senaite 2.x)? We see the option in the XML format, but that does not appear functional at this time.

Hello, I am just beginning an investigation into Senaite, but is there a customer portal or customer portal functionality as well? E.g. Can clients with client roles log in, complete test order requests, and if we wanted to offer an API, allow them to generate an API key so that developers can then use the API key to import or exchange data via API?

hi all, I've been working with Senaite on and off for a few years. recently I've been tasked with adding some functionality for specific workflows. The first workflow refers to the ability to monitor the stock of reference materials.
The lab I'm working for controls the weight of each standard before and after a QC run or analysis. They wish to be able to track the use of each standard and get a warning when they're running low. How difficult would it be to add this functionality to Reference Samples, for example?

Nevertheless, you need to add a custom react component field like e.g. the StringField:
https://github.com/senaite/senaite.core.listing/blob/master/src/senaite/core/listing/react/components/StringField.coffee
But change the input type to date: https://github.com/senaite/senaite.core.listing/blob/master/src/senaite/core/listing/react/components/StringField.coffee#L58

I need an editable DateField in a listing. Has anyone started on this yet? Also, I don't see the Issue tab in s.app.listing on github, where should I create an issue for this?

Reading through the s.a.listing README I don't see anything about coffeescript. If someone can tell me where the converted js output should go, I will update the README. Or does webpack do it automagically?

I actually require a DateTime field but the html5 datetime field is deprecated and datetime-local has not supported by all browsers (in my case firefox on linux)

Mike Metcalfe
@mikejmets
This is from developer.mozilla.org: The control's UI varies in general from browser to browser; at the moment support is patchy, with only Chrome/Opera and Edge on desktop and most modern versions of mobile browsers having usable implementations. In other browsers, these degrade gracefully to simple <input type="text"> controls.

Regarding Senaite Health, can the process for requesting investigations be changed to a more intuitive one? Doctors never ask for samples; they ask for tests (represented by analysis services and analysis profiles). The current process of making analysis requests which begins by first creating samples then indicating tests to be performed on those samples makes the process quite challenging and difficult to adopt Senaite when other healthcare LIMS follow a more natural flow. Also, the anticipated QA around making sure samples are collected in the right containers does not work this way i.e there is no point where the system recommends to the user the correct container to collect a sample in. An ideal flow would be for a doctor to request for an analysis service/profile and get indication of the sample type and container to do this with.
Stefan Gruber
@grulisco
@mateoke Please try out using analysis templates instead of analysis profiles...
You can configure sample partitions, containers and sample types there.

@Chenderin There are multiple ways to export data depending on whether you need raw data or a PDF.

For all Reports/PDFs, you should use the Senaite.Impress addon in addition to senaite.core and senaite.lims. You can customize your own report templates based on TAL/METAL expressions (as a lot of Plone is done). I don't believe Senaite.Impress has Chameleon support, but I could be wrong :)

For raw data, it is best to use the Senaite API if you can. The code lives inside the senaite.core project, but there is an old git repo for the API specifically that has the documentation. The other primary method is to include the senaite.jsonapi addon and get a lot of relevant data in an HTTP request.

NEWAGE-Labs
@NEWAGE-Labs

@toedtling Senaite on a Pi should be similar to running Senaite/Plone any other Linux distro, but your Pi needs to meet Plone's minimum requirements.

Ensure your Pi meets Plone's Installation Requirements, and then follow the Official Senaite Installation Instructions.

Alternatively, you could put Docker on your Pi, and simply run a Senaite container. There should be a few images available, but Ramonski's is the official one I believe (and should be labelled as such).

Your Pi might be powerful enough to host the site, but not to additionally run the browser needed to view it. If resources are limited, ensure your Pi is on a network and navigate to YOUR_PI_IP:8080 in your browser.

@gonzalohd_gitlab That would depend on your familiarity with Plone Development. Senaite was built following most of Plone's conventions to allow multiple Add-Ons to work together. A custom Plone Add-On that modifies the reference samples and does all the bookkeeping/notifications you want should be incredibly feasible!

Unfortunately, Plone is a pretty steep learning curve, so if you're brand new to it I would plan on learning for a bit first. There is a pretty good Plone Training on learning to create Add-Ons for Plone. However, you'll need to keep in mind that Senaite is a combination of a few Add-Ons that are already created, so your modifications wouldn't be the same as they would for a brand new site. For that you'll need to read the GitHub Repositories themselves, browser the Senaite Community Forums, and read some of the old conversations here on Gitter ^^^

Does anyone know how to Override a View Class when the view is specifically for the default view?

We would like to override some of the browser view classes like BatchFolderContentsView, but we cannot seem to get the changes to appear unless we manually enter a @@ style url for whatever the name= field is in our configure.zcml .

We noticed that the name for the view is "base_view" which that the Default view has an alias.

However, (for the BatchFolder example specifically) we have tried using the naming conventions: BatchFolder, base_view, and (Default) with no success in changing which view is rendered by default.

NEWAGE-Labs
@NEWAGE-Labs
Do we need to do something with GenericSetup to get the bika.lims AT content to use our subclassed view as the default view instead somehow? Does anyone have an example of how to override the default view for any of the Senaite content types from a separate Add-On?
NEWAGE-Labs
@NEWAGE-Labs

This is what we have for it so far in our addon:

In our browser/configure.zcml we added:

  <!-- Override BatchFolder View Class -->
  <browser:page
      name="BatchFolder"
      class=".batchfolder.CustomBatchFolderContentsView"
      permission="cmf.ListFolderContents"
      for="bika.lims.interfaces.IBatchFolder"
      layer="nal.lims.interfaces.INalLimsLayer"
      />

And then in our browser/batchfolder.py we added:

from bika.lims.browser.batchfolder import BatchFolderContentsView
#Some other imports

class CustomBatchFolderContentsView(BatchFolderContentsView):
    #Our customized BatchFolder view class

If we navigate to localhost:8080/oursenaitesite/.../@@BatchFolder we successfully see our custom view. We would like this to be the Default
However, with the name field set to name='base_edit' which is the name senaite aliases the (Default) view as, we don't get our custom view and ONLY get the Senaite default.

Mike Metcalfe
@mikejmets
To override you must place the config in overrides.zcml not configure.zcml
Also, like the configure.zcml hierarchy that starts in the root of the add on, you need an overrides.zcml that includes browser/overrides.zcml
NEWAGE-Labs
@NEWAGE-Labs

@mikejmets Thank you for that information! We have tried overriding the other package, but now cannot even get a new view.

Thus far we have added an overrides.zcml file to our root that includes the browser directory:

<configure
    xmlns="http://namespaces.zope.org/zope"
    xmlns:browser="http://namespaces.zope.org/browser"
    i18n_domain="nal.lims">

    <include package=".browser" />

</configure>

We then included this file in our main configure.zcml file with:

  <include file="overrides.zcml" />

We then added a browser/overrides.zcml with the new browser:page registration according to the documentation linked about.

<configure
xmlns="http://namespaces.zope.org/zope"
xmlns:browser="http://namespaces.zope.org/browser"
i18n_domain="nal.lims">

  <!-- Override BatchFolder View Class -->
  <configure package="bika.lims.browser.batchfolder">
        <browser:page
            for="bika.lims.interfaces.IBatchFolder"
            class="nal.lims.browser.batchfolder.CustomBatchFolderContentsView"
            name="base_edit"
            layer="nal.lims.interfaces.INalLimsLayer"
            permission="cmf.ListFolderContents"
        />
  </configure>

</configure>
Do you know of any examples of this Override configuration being implemented successfully on Plone 5? I'm not sure what we are missing, but I'm willing to figure it out if anyone has an example repo.
NEWAGE-Labs
@NEWAGE-Labs

Nevermind, we figured it out!

It worked following the official Overriding a View Class documentation, but with the exception that we needed some Senaite interfaces to get everything working correctly.

The solution was using these interfaces instead of the IDefaultPloneLayer for our root level interface layer.

from senaite.impress.interfaces import ILayer as ISenaiteImpressLayer
from senaite.lims.interfaces import ISenaiteLIMS
from bika.lims.interfaces import IBikaLIMS

#Layer our custom views bind to
class INalLimsLayer(ISenaiteImpressLayer, ISenaiteLIMS, IBikaLIMS):
    """Marker interface that defines a browser layer."""

Does anyone know how to get the Navigation to re-load the name for a folder?

During install, my addon changes both the Factory Type title field, as well as the top level folder from "Methods" to "SOPs". The folder title field is changed using the API:

def post_install(context):
    """Post install script"""
    # Do something at the end of the installation of this package.
    site = api.get_portal()

    #Change 'Methods' folder title to 'SOPs'
    site.methods.title = "SOPs"

and the FTI is changed using a purging property:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<object name="Methods"
        meta_type="Factory-based Type Information with dynamic views"
        xmlns:i18n="http://xml.zope.org/namespaces/i18n"
        i18n:domain="my.addon">
 <property name="title" purge="True">SOPs</property>
</object>

but the Navigation portlet doesn't register the change unless I create an entirely new folder. It looks correct in the ZMI, in the navigation control panel at: http://localhost:8080/senaite/@@navigation-controlpanel, and in the Breadcrumbs, but not in the Navigation portlet itself.

Paul VanderWeele
@faytrow
The title is initially set in bika/lims/profiles/default/structure/methods/.properties during Senaite install when the folder is created. The Nav tree is displaying that initial value even if the title is change after install though. I can modify that file directly and get a fresh site to properly display the title in the navigation, but if I alter the title as part of my own addon's installation the change is not picked up.

I believe by default, samples must be invalidated and retested if they've made it all the way the the Verified state. They cannot be 'unverified' since that sort of implies they were not truly verified in the first place. A workflow for that could be added via an add-on though.

Hi, we have more than one lab and are trying to find out how to to limit what is visible/accessible to the separate lab managers to only what they create.Is this possible?

For example, LabManagerA can only see clients and interact with samples they create. LabManagerB is unable see/edit any of LabManagerA's clients/samples etc

Jeff Bullard
@Jeff-DFWEnv
@NEWAGE-Labs Thanks for reply on Verified state. I'll need to program capability to downgrade the state because as we are less than 100% prefect in verification. This particular batch of samples had >500 analysis results and one was incorrect. Due to inability to downgrade verification, had to start over at the beginning and re-enter all of them with new AR identifications etc. Huge chore and now the AR IDs don't match our bench sheets. That's a big problem.
