Managing Content: Work Smarter, Not Harder – with Bookmarklets
By: Rick Katka – Application Consultant
I created the custom bookmarklet by creating a new bookmark, then editing the URL field to the below (you’ll want to replace <WebCenter Url> and <instance name> with your appropriate variables):
DOC_INFO_BY_NAME – useful for troubleshooting content issues between revisions or environments
You can also create a bookmarklet by creating a link and dragging and dropping the link into your bookmark bar in some browsers. This is useful if you want to distribute your bookmarklet to other users.
I’ve found that the Doc Info (DOC_INFO_BY_NAME), Workflow Info (GET_WORKFLOW_INFO_BYNAME), Get User Info (QUERY_USER_ATTRIBUTES), and GET_PAGE (SS_GET_PAGE) are some of the most used services that are nice to have quick access to for troubleshooting various content-related issues. They are especially useful if you are working in multiple environments and have to troubleshoot synchronization issues between them. Here is a list of the above mentioned services:
GET_WORKFLOW_INFO_BYNAME – useful for troubleshooting workflow issues
QUERY_USER_ATTRIBUTES – useful for troubleshooting user access issues.
SS_GET_PAGE – allows you to quickly get to pages based on siteId, nodeId. Useful when making changes or troubleshooting large project files.
Lastly, here are the bookmarklets we’ve covered as links that you should be able to drag into your browser’s bookmarks toolbar. Before you use them you’ll need to edit them to point to your individual WebCenter Url and instance name.
