Content View - Results

Updated: June 20, 2024

JSF UI Deprecation
This requires to have the JSF UI addon installed on your server that is deprecated since Nuxeo Platform LTS 2019.
Please refer to the Web UI documentation.

Once you've defined the query and form of your content view, you can define how to display the list of documents that match the query.

Search results, and so content listings, are presented in a table. You can configure the columns, i.e. the information on the documents that should be displayed in your content view. This is done in the Results tab of the content view.


Select the Nuxeo JSF UI target package in your Application Definition for the Content View feature to be available.

General Configuration

The first section of the Results tab enables you to define some general configuration on the content view results.

  • Number of results per page: The default numbers of documents displayed by page
  • Enable the user to edit displayed column: Enables the user to edit the search results displayed
  • Enable spreadsheet action: Enables the user to use the Nuxeo Spreadsheet features from the content view results.
  • Enable common actions (copy, paste, delete...): Makes the generic bulk actions available when user selects one or several documents
  • Enable additional actions: Makes it possible to use custom actions on documents displayed in the content view. Click on Create a new action to create the action to use.
