Functional Overview

Nuxeo Diff enables to compare two documents or two versions of a document to see the differences between documents or versions.

When you compare two documents or versions of a document, the elements below are compared:

  • The metadata (title, coverage, modification date, etc).
  • The content (note or main attachment depending on the document involved).
  • The attached files.

The only requirements for Nuxeo Diff to compare files is that their content can be converted into TXT or HTML format, which is the case for PDF and Office files using the default converters of the Nuxeo Platform.

You can compare documents in any space of the Nuxeo Platform: workspaces, sections...

To compare two versions of a document:

  1. On the document's History tab, click on the Archived Versions sub-tab.
  2. Select the two versions you want to compare by checking the corresponding boxes.
  3. Click on the Compare button. The fields for which there has been changes between the two versions are displayed in a table, with the first version's values on the left and the second version's values on the right.
