Wow, Marian Caikovski have found a bug in my old blogpost about copying version tree 🙂 Though it is not clear what “The described method will work even if the root version in the source object has been previously deleted. But the copies will not be entirely valid.” does mean, because I observe the following behaviour:
Connected to Documentum Server running Release 7.3.0000.0214 Linux64.Postgres Session id is s0 API> create,c,dm_document ... 0902987880002cf1 API> save,c,l ... OK API> checkout,c,l ... 0902987880002cf1 API> checkin,c,l ... 0902987880002cfc API> fetch,c,0902987880002cfc ... OK API> checkout,c,l ... 0902987880002cfc API> checkin,c,l ... 0902987880002cfe API> destroy,c,0902987880002cf1 ... OK API> fetch,c,0902987880002cf1 ... OK API> saveasnew,c,l ... [DM_SYSOBJECT_E_IS_DELETED]error: "The sysobject '' has been deleted and can not be updated/deleted."
which could be fixed using following trick:
API> set,c,l,i_is_deleted SET> F ... OK API> saveasnew,c,l ... 0902987880002cf3
The complete code is available on github.
