5 Great Features in Nuxeo Studio
Nuxeo Studio is an online service that provides a vast array of features to help users manage their enterprise content better in Nuxeo Platform. Being a user of the service as well as a Nuxeo integration engineer myself, I’d like to list some of the big features Nuxeo Studio has got going for itself.
1. Schema Definitions
Studio allows users to define a vast lists of schemes, or collection of metadata (like a potential Football Player schema would include their name, roster number, position, etc.). These help objectify groups of data to have a defined identity so they can be used in a means that makes sense to the user.
2. Workflows and Lifecycles
Nuxeo Studio provides a nice visual Lifecycle tool to set-up all the possible document states. This includes the starting state and all the possible paths from that state. With this, the studio provides a visual workflow tool that helps users make a roadmap on how documents are handled by users, and how it affects its lifecycle state.
3. Structure Templates
This tool alleviates any unnecessary work to manually create documents, by simply creating a template that automatically produces them. The user can define rules of what type of documents can be created, along with setting up an automatic control list of permissions for the created documents.
4. Content View Customization
Here, the user can define how content is displayed on the platform, as well as define the filter rules on how content can be organized and searched for. To do this, Nuxeo provides NXQL (the Nuxeo Query Language) as a means to query data from its database. It’s a handy language to pick up, and allows the content view to gain access to specific metadata so it can display them in a fashion that suits the users needs.
5. Automation Functions
Users are able to create users actions, automation chains, or event handlers, which allows top-level programming for almost everything with the users content. For automation chains, users can define a string of operations, like simply changing a document property. For user actions, users can apply those automation chains to be triggered when a user does something, like click a button. And for event handlers, users can set an automation chain to be triggered when a special document event happens, like when one is created.
While all of these are standout features of Nuxeo Studio, there are still more things the service can provide.Nuxeo has a vast amount of documentation posted online for everything above, and much more.
