Browse content API
iProva allows users to browse through content which is available to them (for users which prefer browsing over searching).
Content available to the user might include:
- Process flowcharts
- Question list
- Reports (management information)
- Links to web pages/network locations
Of course, it would not make sense to present a list of all content in iProva – since this will typically result in thousands of items.
Therefore, lists can be limited to the scope of a certain portal or to an even smaller scope: collections. The concepts “portals” and “collections” are explained in this document.
In addition, filtering of results on metadata criteria is also possible.
For example, this allows you to show a list of only Word documents, or only documents which were published in the last month.
A WCF API gives access to the content of portals and collections. It can be used to retrieve (filtered) lists of content. Results are automatically security trimmed (only results which are accessible to the user will be included). For each result, an URL is returned which can be used to redirect the user to the iProva screen in which the actual content will be shown.
The WCF API for iProva Portals & Collections can be used to accomplish the scenario’s listed below:
- Retrieve information about portals and collections
- Retrieve (filtered) lists of content items present in a portal or collection
