I'm having trouble with the precondition field of a fileobject. I've got a
fileobject (a PDF-file) and its precondition field states myPrecondition, which

This is insane...
Why is this insane? Because of using a precondition, the code of the
method or the hole idea?
Note: Using the security setting and assigning roles is not an option
because the fileobject is recreated every night.
Rubbish. Two options:
- don't recreate the file each night, just edit its contents.
I'm thinking of manage_upload or update_data to edit the file content,
but I can't figure out how to apply them. Hell, I can't even figure out
how to select the file that is to be updated!
I use the following two objects for replacing the existing file.
1. External Method 'printbestand'
if __name__ == "__main__":
2. Script (Python) 'printbestand_upload':
fileobject = context.printbestand()
As you can see in 'printbestand_upload', the file is deleted first and
then the new file is added. Obviously the existing file should not be
deleted but its content updatad/edited/replaced.
My question are:
Q1: How do I select the file that is to be updated?
Q2: How do I update the content of that file with the content of the new
- when you recreate the file, set the role to permission mapping in the
same lump of code.
OK, how do I do that?
