CMIS object is used for access of the underlying Content Management System (CMS) with CMIS API.

Basic Usage

import { cmis } from "sdk/cms";
import { response } from "sdk/http";
import { streams } from "sdk/io";

let cmisSession = cmis.getSession();

let rootFolder = cmisSession.getRootFolder();

let children = rootFolder.getChildren();
response.println("Listing the children of the root folder:");
for (let i in children) {
    response.println("Object ID: " + children[i].getId());
    response.println("Object Name: " + children[i].getName());

const textFileName = "test.txt";
response.println("Creating a simple text file, " + textFileName);

const mimetype = "text/plain; charset=UTF-8";
let content = "This is some test content.";
let filename = textFileName;

let outputStream = streams.createByteArrayOutputStream();
let bytes = outputStream.getBytes();
let inputStream = streams.createByteArrayInputStream(bytes);

let contentStream = cmisSession.getObjectFactory().createContentStream(filename, bytes.length, mimetype, inputStream);

let properties = { "cmis:name": "", "cmis:objectTypeId": "" };
properties[cmis.OBJECT_TYPE_ID] = cmis.OBJECT_TYPE_DOCUMENT;
properties[cmis.NAME] = filename;
let newDocument;
try {
    newDocument = rootFolder.createDocument(properties, contentStream, cmis.VERSIONING_STATE_MAJOR);
} catch (e) {
    response.println("Error: " + e);
let documentId = newDocument?.getId();

response.println("Document ID: " + documentId);

children = rootFolder.getChildren();
response.println("Listing the children of the root folder again:");
for (let i in children) {
    response.println("Object ID: " + children[i].getId());
    response.println("Object Name: " + children[i].getName());
    response.println("Object Type: " + JSON.stringify(children[i].getType().getId().toString()));

// Get the contents of the file
let doc;
if (documentId !== undefined) {
    doc = cmisSession.getObject(documentId);
} else {
    response.println("No content");

contentStream = doc?.getContentStream(); // returns null if the document has no content
if (contentStream !== null) {
    content = contentStream.getStream().readText();
    response.println("Contents of " + filename + " are: " + content);
} else {
    response.println("No content.");

response.println("Deleting the newly created document");
if (newDocument) {
