How to create renditions?
Hi, I want to store renditions to my documents which I can request by using the CMIS interface (i.e. with function getRenditions() of the CMIS ObjectService). How can I append such renditions to my documents inside Nuxeo?
Thanks in advance.
At the moment (Nuxeo 5.5) you cannot. As is documented on http://doc.nuxeo.com/x/JIAO in the “Model mapping” section, secondary content streams in Nuxeo are not visible as CMIS renditions.
But this feature could be implemented if requested by a customer.
According to the CMIS 1.1 spec, “CMIS provides no capability to create or update renditions accessed through the rendition services.”
However, the Nuxeo RenditionService (https://github.com/nuxeo/nuxeo-platform-rendition) provides a mechanism to generate renditions by leveraging automation operation chains to transform the main Blob of interest.
