Description

NOTE: This was fixed in but the customer now requires the fix in 6.2.2.N

[Description]

Download as zip API does not include custom folders which are sub-types of cm:folder.

[Steps to reproduce]

  • Install alfresco 6.2.2.8 using the installer

  • Copy the provided context and model file to tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/extension

  • Start alfresco

  • Login to share using the admin user

  • Copy the provided script "createFolderStructure.js" to Repository>Data Dictionary>Scripts

  • Click on "My Files" in the share menu

  • Create a new folder "forRules"

  • Click on the folder "forRules"

  • Create a new text file called "sample.txt"

  • Click on the "forRules" link in the breadcrumb to load the library view

  • Click again on the "forRules" link in the breadcrumb to load the folder details

  • Click on "Manage Rules"

  • Click on "Create Rules"

  • Enter a name for the rule ie "test rule", under "If all criteria are met" select "Name" and "Equals" value "sample.txt", this will ensure the rule only runs for the sample.txt file

  • Under "Perform Action" select "Execute Script" and select the script "createFolderStructure.js"

  • Click create

  • Click "Run Rules..." and select "Run rules for this folder"

  • Navigate the to sample site's document library and take note of the folder's "myroot" uuid

  • Execute the curl command below to download the folder "myroot"

This will return a donwload ID as the response. Take note of this ID.

  • In a browser go to

this will download the zip file.

  • Open the zip file and view the contents of the myroot folder

[Expected Behaviour]

The exploded folder contains one file "backuplog.txt" and two folders "CustomFolder" and "OotbFolder"

[Observed Behaviour]

The exploded folder contais one file "backuplog.txt" and the folder "OotbFolder".

[Analysis to date]

The API seems to be skipping custom type folders. The problematic line seems to be https://github.com/Alfresco/alfresco-repository/blob/master/src/main/java/org/alfresco/repo/download/ZipDownloadExporter.java#L137. This has been reported in the past and confirmed to be a bug but it has not been fixed:
