Version increment on Asset and Page

Hi,  

 

I need help with version on Assets.

 

When asset or page are saved it creates a new version with incremental value as 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 and so on. Which is in 1.x.  Does version ever change from  1.x to 2.x or it there a way to change the version in this format.

Please find attached screen shot for reference.

As per adobe documentation, the default behaviour is 

  • Create versions of any page.
  • The initial labels and version node names will be 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 and so forth.
  • Restore the first version; i.e. 1.0.
  • Create new versions again.
  • The generated labels and node names will now be 1.0.0, 1.0.1, 1.0.2, etc.

Refer: https://docs.adobe.com/content/help/en/experience-manager-64/authoring/siteandpage/working-with-page...

But, if you want to implement custom numbering, instead of 1.0 if you want 2.0 then the below approach may help you.

Create a new workflow step, in the workflow step, write custom replication code, while replicating it should also create a version.

The ReplicationOptions class has setRevision method, you can try that.

ReplicationOptions options = new ReplicationOptions();
    // Do not create new versions as this adds to overhead
    options.setSuppressVersions(true);
    // Avoid sling job overhead by forcing synchronous. Note this will result in serial activation.
    options.setSynchronous(true);
    // Do NOT suppress status update of resource (set replication properties accordingly)
    options.setSuppressStatusUpdate(false);  
 
    log.info("**** ABOUT TO REPLICATE" ) ;  
    //Rep the content      replicate(Session session, ReplicationActionType type, String path)
    replicator.replicate(session,ReplicationActionType.ACTIVATE,path);

 

You can refer this to get some idea.

You need to disable the activation step which is in the request for activation workflow and author your custom activation step.
