Nuxeo Tree Snapshot enables to snapshot and version a whole folder and its content in a single step. You can then recover the state of a folder for a given version.
This addon requires no specific installation steps. It can be installed like any other package with nuxeoctl command line or from the Update Center.
Using Nuxeo Tree Snapshot
The addons adds a new document type, Versionable folder, which can be created in Workspaces.
Versionable folders can be published, using the regular Publish tab. When it is published a new version of the folder is automatically created and available in archived versions. The content of the versionable folder is published at the same time, and if needed versioned.
In the versionable folder History > Archived versions tab you can use the regular archived versions actions (View archived version and Restore).
