Time Based Publishing


I've enabled time based publishing for a folder. I have two different resource types: the normal document and another resource type. When uploading a normal document, I can enter the time to live for the document at the properties. But when I change the resource type, this properties don't appear anymore.

Does anybody have an idea, how I can make them appear for other resource types.

Hi Dominik,

there might be two reason for this behavior:

1. You did not integrate the properties tbp:VALIDFROM and tbp:VALIDTO in your Property Structure that is linked to your resource type. If you use the DefaultPropertyStructure they should be there, as the Property Group all_groups include the Property Group lifetime with exactly the above properties.

2. The validity pattern for the above properties is somehow restricted. Go to Property Metadata Configuration and search for "cm_tbp_validto" and "cm_tbp_validfrom". See if Folder Validity Patterns and Document Validity Patterns are set to "*" and Resource Type is empty (or contains the correct! resource types IDs).

Hope this helps,
