Extends Plone content with metadata about the last modifier

Project description


collective.lastmodifier provides support for storing the user who made the last modification on a content item. It extends Archetypes-based content types with a lastModifier field using schemaextender. Further it registers an index and a metadata column in portal_catalog and enables their usage in collections.


Install collective.lastmodifier by adding it to the list of eggs in your buildout or by adding it as a dependency of your policy package. Then run buildout and restart your instance.

Go to Site Setup of your Plone site and activate the collective.lastmodifier add-on.

Last modifier adapter

In addition to the catalog index and metadata the last modifier adapter provides easy access for getting the last modifier or for setting it:

from collective.lastmodifier.interfaces import ILastModifier

last_modifier = ILastModifier(context)
last_modifier.get()  # returns the user id of the last modifier
last_modifier.set(user_id)  # sets the last modifier


Runs with Plone 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3.

It is currently only compatible with Archetypes, Dexterity is not compatible.
