Email Notification on Page Activation

Avatar

Level 3

I want to send an email notification wen a page is activated, but there are also modifications since the last activation.

For now, we have implemented an event handler that detects the ACTIVATE events.

Is there a way to check if the page has also been modified since the last activation?

 

Thanks

You can keep a custom property to track activation date, now when ever you are activating a page,  compare last modified property and custom property ( last activation date). If last modified is greater than last activate date, it means page has been modified and then update this property with new activation date.

You can read the cq:lastmodifieddate date property of that page stored in jcr:content

How will that help me? if I activate the same page twice, the last modification date stays the same, while the activation date changes, so my event handler is triggered. How do i know that the modified date changed between two activations?

Use getPath() to check which property gets changes and add PROPERTY_CHANGED  changed event on the node path

if cq:lastmodified  changes, getPath() will return something similar to  path will be [node path]/cq:lastmodified

But the event i'm listening to is the activate event, not the PROPERTY_CHANGED event. I need to detect the activation events in order to trigger notification emails.
