We are currently running version 12.6.3 of Hippo.
We have a document type called News which was previously only populated by an API importer. As part of a recent change, News documents will also be created manually. Our tester noticed that, after adding the new hippostd:foldertype, that when you tried to add a new news document, the ability to name it was missing:
I discovered it was because the document type appeared to have no fields:
However, if you click ‘Edit’ most of the fields appear, apart from one:
If you click ‘Done’ you see the field missing still:
If you then select ‘Type actions’, ‘Commit’, the field appears and everything appears OK! News documents can then be created.
This was fine for testing, however this is not a viable option for releasing to production as the editing of document types is only available to the admin user, which is disabled on production. It appears from my testing that there is something updated in the repo that fixes this, but I can’t see what. Can anyone point me in the direction of what is updated? If the code changes are deployed with the repo.bootstrap=full (it is usually set to true) this also resolves the issues, but obviously this is not recommended on production environments: https://documentation.bloomreach.com/12/library/concepts/configuration-management/bootstrapping.html
Any advice would be gratefully received.
