Filtering BrowserWidget

edited April 4, 2017 in Documentum

Is there a way to configure a user-definable filter for a BrowserWidget in D2?  I.e. if I have a list of folders like this

0001002

0001032

0001033

0002012

0002032

0002034

0004002

0005002

0005032

But the user only wants to see folders beginning with 0002* -- is there a way that filter can be set up (where the user can enter the filter value and then refresh the browser results?  We have an issue where there are too many folders returned by the widget and the display limits are being hit.   We can obviously increase the limit settings but that is just moving the "goal posts" and does not really address the issue.



Thanks

    Hi Rene,

    As far as my knowledge goes in D2-Configurations there is no provision to have filtering capability for Browser widget. Creating customwidget same as Browser widget is quite a expensive task.

    Have you tried creating an intermediate layer (eg 0002-folders) and link all 0002 folders to intermediate folder?  This isnt ideal, but does address the numerous folder links (we have the same problem in our environment).

    That's actually what we will probably end up doing, but was hoping there would be another approach.  Thanks.
