Tool for Migrating Between Environments

Alec Wadey 9 years ago in ADAM Core updated by petra.tant 2 years ago 6

On all our projects we first develop on our development environments, move into test, then into UAT and finally into production - so a proper DTAP deployment :)

One of the areas we always struggle with is the moving of data (e.g organisations, user groups, settings, classifications, fields) between environments.  Generally we put together an Excel spreadsheet in which we update any changes when in development and run against the environments as we push through.  However, this isn't the "neatest" of solutions.

Just like with the export / import of translations, it would be great if the same could be completed against other elements in the solution.  That way we have an easy way of moving between environments, hopefully reducing the time it takes to achieve this and also providing better service to our clients.

Allow admins to cancel/delete jobs from System studio (ConfigStudio)

Nik De Clercq 5 years ago in ADAM Core updated by bto_consultant14 4 years ago 1

Users sometimes submit jobs that shouldn't have been submitted. Or due to a large job queue, some jobs are no longer relevant and can be canceled.

As an admin it would be great if I could cancel/remove a non running job. Or it might be great that regular users could remove their own (non running) jobs.

Although this feature might also answer the question: https://support.adamsoftware.net/entries/80116759-Adam-Core-CommandLine-cancel-maintenance-job-by-job-id

Sharing Collections to User Groups instead of single Users

Sascha Meyer zu Siederdissen 6 years ago in ADAM Core updated by petra.tant 2 years ago 10

It would be nice if the Collections could be shared to a whole group instead the user having to select a set of users.

Extend Record permissions with Download permission

Peter Klören 5 years ago in ADAM Core updated by petra.tant 2 years ago 13

The current list of permissions set for accessing Records consists of:

NoAccess, Read, Modify, Delete, FullControl, DenyFullControl, DenyDelete, DenyModify, DenyRead

Please extend this to:

NoAccess, Read, Download, Modify, Delete, FullControl, DenyFullControl, DenyDelete, DenyModify,  DenyDownload, DenyRead

The permission to download will enable the download buttons and allows the files to be used via CS Sync.

Better support for Office documents

Joris Wynendaele 5 years ago in ADAM Core updated by petra.tant 2 years ago 3

It would be good to have better support for Microsoft Office documents. For example, building a Media Engine based on Aspose (http://www.aspose.com/) would allow ADAM to create a preview of every slide (PPTX), page (DOCX) or worksheet (XSLX). It would also allow to extract all contents from the file.

Allow configuration of spaces on user group level

Peter Klören 5 years ago in ADAM Core updated by petra.tant 1 year ago 5

Since 5.3 we no longer can configure spaces on the user group level, only on system level. Spaces are hidden when no assets can be found based on the users permission.


We need to be able to configure spaces on user group level as we want to present different sets of spaces to different user groups, independent of the fact that a user could find assets in a space or not. Hiding spaces when there is nothing to show would give support questions "where did my spaces go". Better would be to show the number of records in the space on the Spaces landing page.

Configure the order of panels on asset view/edit asset view

Anastasia Fedorovich 5 years ago in ADAM Core updated by Graham Hilliard 4 years ago 0

Dear ADAM team,

Many of our clients request the specific custom order of panels for asset read/edit view. For example, some clients want to set the first "select classification" panel, others - upload panel. Configuration for all panels on these pages will be very useful.

Best regards,

Improve the UI for choosing classifications.

Luke Wilkinson 7 years ago in ADAM Core updated by Bart Theys 4 years ago 3

Some areas of the UI don't have the standard selection of choosing classifications, see the screenshot, the client I have been working with recently raised this ad I said I would submit a feature request, I have to say I do agree with them, from a business user point of view the UI needs to remain the same.

Use FileVersionId in PreviewAdder metadata to link correct record in AllItems

Peter Klören 6 years ago in ADAM Core updated by petra.tant 4 years ago 1

Currently the PreviewAdder media engine is using the filename and crc to find the file to link to the indd file on cataloging. However, if in ADAM multiple records exist with exactly the same file (name + crc), the cataloging action will fail because the query returns more then one result.

Secondly, when you have two files with the same name in the folder, Drive will show them as "name.jpg" and "name_1.jpg". When the user drags "name_1.jpg" on the canvas, the cataloging action fails because "name_1.jpg" doesn't exist in the database.

Both situations occur when saving the indd file back to ADAM via Drive.

Please put the fileversion id in the previewadder XMP information and use this guid to link the AllItems. If the FileVersionId is not in the XMP, default to the old query using the name and crc.
