Content view is the Nuxeo technology used to define a list of documents to display. The Nuxeo Platform uses this technology in these following cases:

Content tab Listing Search

A Content View is defined by three notions:

  • A query: defines a request on the document repository to express the list of documents to display,
  • A form: lets the user express additional information about the request in your final application (ex: advanced search form, faceted form, post-filtering in content tab),
  • A display result: A description of how the listing result is displayed.

Here is how these notions are visible in the Nuxeo Platform interface:

Content tab Listing Search
Content View - Content
Content View - Content
Content View - Search tab
Content View - Search tab

Content View Configuration Overview

Each part of the content view definition in Studio is dedicated to configure each notion explained above:

  • Query definition:
    Content View - Query Definition
    Content View - Query Definition
  • Form definition:
    Content View - Form Definition
    Content View - Form Definition
  • Result Display definition:
    Content View - Results Form
    Content View - Results Form

Once you defined your content view, you can use it for these following cases:

  • as the Content tab of your document type
  • in another tab of your document type
  • as a search form in the Search tab (from Nuxeo Platform 6.0)
  • as a faceted search (before Nuxeo Platform 6.0)
  • as an advanced search (before Nuxeo Platform 6.0)

The following pages explain how to configure each part of a content view.
