Back to cfg.d

This file contains the set_document_fields_automatic function. You use this function to perform a set of actions which you want to happen automatically before the Document as part of the Document commit() step, in which the document is written to the database.

Example

$c->{set_document_automatic_fields} = sub
{
        my( $doc ) = @_;
        if($doc->value("description") eq ""){
                 $doc->value("description", "the default description"); #if the documents description is empty set it to a holding value
        }
};
