    Using CMIS in Content Presenter to retrieve a DAM image rendition

    BillUK
      Hi,

      Can anyone please help with how to retrieve a specific rendition (e.g. Web, Preview, Thumbnail) of an image file through a CMIS query in Content Presenter.

      The image was upload and converted successfully using DAM (Digital Asset Manager) using the 'BasicRenditions' default option and the different renditions are visible within Content Presenter. I am able to display documents and images in Content Presenter using CMIS, but want to be able to amend this query to obtain one of the converted renditions.

      I would like to know how to do this and appreciate your assistance with this. The environment consists of Webcenter 11g and UCM 11g.

      Thanks

          According to this manual: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E23943_01/doc.1111/e15813/toc.htm#BABFCBFA it is not possible yet:

          For this release, some of the optional capabilities listed in section 2.1.1 have not been implemented. Versioning, ACL, Policies, Relationships, Change Log, Folder Descendants/Tree, and Renditions will be considered for future releases.

            Perhaps not directly using CMIS, but you can enable static access to DAM image renditions. See these blog posts:

            it enables you to link directly to certain renditions, by appending &Rendition=RenditionName to your image URLS (even the /webcenter/content/conn format). Perhaps this can help you achieve your goal.

              Thanks for your responses.

              Jiri - I had also read somewhere that this isn't supported currently using a CMIS but wasn't 100% sure. I have raised an SR with Oracle.

              Jaap - Thanks for those links. I have seen the first one previously. Our requirement also involves retrieving images based on the values of custom fields which we have created for which values are supplied during check in. E.g. a DeptId field which is populated during check in, and when retrieving content in Content Presenter we use a CMIS query to retrieve content based on the DeptId value. This is why CMIS would have been ideal. I am not sure whether accessing the static images as outlined in those blog posts would still enable to do this, but will investigate.

              Thanks
