Transaction failed on custom operation ?


I'm trying to create a custom operation for the first time with nuxeo IDE.

This operation aims to duplicate current workspace hierarchy as a section hierarchy in the parent domain.

With provided studio operations, i managed easily to create a matching section as a workspace is created in the domain (Each of my domains have a sections root and a workspace root)…

But here i get a “transaction failed” error in the UI though what I get in the logs seems to assert my document hierarchy is somehow created.

This is how i try to create my sections hierarchy :

for(int i = nodes.size()-1; i >= 0; i --){
            nodeName = nodes.get(i).get(0);
            try {
                sectionRoot = session.getChild(ref, nodeName.trim());   
            } catch (ClientException e) {
                sectionRoot = session.createDocumentModel(sectionRoot.getPathAsString(), nodeName.trim(), "Section");
                logger.warn("--Section root Path : "+sectionRoot.getPathAsString()+"--");
                sectionRoot.setPropertyValue("dc:title", nodeName);
                sectionRoot = session.createDocument(sectionRoot);
            ref = sectionRoot.getRef();
        return sectionRoot;

And here is what i get in the logs :

2013-02-18 16:40:49,235 WARN  [fr.univlille2.ecm.automation.MirrorSectionHierarchy] --MirrorSectionHierarchy --under test--

Can someone please help me with what is missing here ? Thanks!

Even trying to handle the operation in a dedicated transaction is useless, i don't get any error message but my section tree is still not created though i can get the path i expect to draw passing a getPathAsString() on the last document i'm trying to create :(


What's your initial error?


Hello, The only error i get is related to CAS and is not relevant I think :

2013-02-20 11:52:45,510 ERROR [org.nuxeo.ecm.platform.ui.web.auth.cas2.Cas2Authenticator] pass by validStartUpPage 2013-02-20 11:52:45,557 ERROR [org.nuxeo.ecm.platform.ui.web.auth.cas2.Cas2Authenticator] pass by validStartUpPage

Everything else is INFO, standard warnings and my DEBUG.

I've cleaned up my job deleting everything about my specific transaction handling and i can even retrieve the output document title in the operation after, but its creation is still not effective. Thanks for your time,


Finally worked with a work-around ie:

1/ Create this custom operation to push parents into context as a list

2/ Use a “Run for each” operation to evaluate if the child has to be created or not as a section, create the referring section if required.
