Plone content rule to move an item based on an attribute

Project Description



sc.contentrules.movebyattribute is a content rule action used to organize content by moving it under a folderish object with the same id as the value returned by a selected attribute.

Use case

In a portal content is created in a folder /post and must be moved to a new location when it is published. This new location will be under another folder /blogs where every user has its own sub folder

A portal manager will add a content rule that when a Page is published inside /post it will lookup the value of the method Creator and then move the published content to a folderish under /blog. The id of this folderish will match the value extracted from the Creator method.

So, a user with username kirk, will add a new Page in /post and wait for publication. When a reviewer publishes the content, it will be moved under /blog/kirk, which must already exist.
