Search Functions

The resourcesSearch function exposes the following functions:

define(function () {
 
    /**
     * Constructor. Takes context as argument.
     * @param contextObj - map of properties.    
     */
    function ResourcesSearch(contextObj){};
 
    /**
     * Get/Set 'q' parameter of the query
     * @param contextObj - map of properties.
     * @returns this if 'value' sent to the method,
     *          otherwise returns current value of the parameter
     */
    ResourcesSearch.prototype.q= function(value){};
 
    /**
     * Get/Set 'folderUri' parameter of the query
     * @param value - new value, optional
     * @returns this if 'value' sent to the method,
     *          otherwise returns current value of the parameter
     */
    ResourcesSearch.prototype.folderUri= function(value){};
 
    /**
     * Get/Set 'type' parameter of the query
     * @param value - new value, optional
     * @returns this if 'value' sent to the method,
     *          otherwise returns current value of the parameter
     */
    ResourcesSearch.prototype.type= function(value){};
 
    /**
     * Get/Set 'offset' parameter of the query
     * @param value - new value, optional
     * @returns this if 'value' sent to the method,
     *          otherwise returns current value of the parameter
     */
    ResourcesSearch.prototype.offset= function(value){};
 
    /**
     * Get/Set 'limit' parameter of the query
     * @param value - new value, optional
     * @returns this if 'value' sent to the method,
     *          otherwise returns current value of the parameter
     */
    ResourcesSearch.prototype.limit= function(value){};
 
 
    /**
     * Get/Set 'recursive' parameter of the query
     * @param value - new value, optional
     * @returns this if 'value' sent to the method,
     *          otherwise returns current value of the parameter
     */
    ResourcesSearch.prototype.recursive= function(value){};
    /**
     * Get/Set 'sortBy' parameter of the query
     * @param value - new value, optional
     * @returns this if 'value' sent to the method,
     *          otherwise returns current value of the parameter
     */
    ResourcesSearch.prototype.sortBy= function(value){};
 
    /**
     * Get/Set 'accessType' parameter of the query
     * @param value - new value, optional
     * @returns this if 'value' sent to the method,
     *          otherwise returns current value of the parameter
     */
    ResourcesSearch.prototype.accessType= function(value){};
 
    /**
     * Get/Set 'showHiddenItems' parameter of the query
     * @param value - new value, optional
     * @returns this if 'value' sent to the method,
     *          otherwise returns current value of the parameter
     */
    ResourcesSearch.prototype.showHiddenItems= function(value){};
 
    /**
     * Get/Set 'forceTotalCount' parameter of the query
     * @param value - new value, optional
     * @returns this if 'value' sent to the method,
     *          otherwise returns current value of the parameter
     */
    ResourcesSearch.prototype.forceTotalCount= function(value){};
 
    return ResourcesSearch;
});

Finding Resources

The following code examples show two different ways of handling results after making a simple repository search in the Public folder.

new ResourcesSearch({
    server:"http://localhost:8080/jasperserver-pro",
    folderUri: "/public",
    recursive: false
})).run(function(resourceLookups){
    // results here
});

var search = v.resourcesSearch({
    folderUri: "/public",
    recursive: false,
    success: function(repo) {
        console.log(repo.data()); // resourceLookups
    } 
});

Reusing a Search Instance

If you make multiple searches, for example in different folders, you can create a function to do that using the ResourcesSearch function.

var folderContentQuery = new ResourcesSearch({
    server:"http://localhost:8080/jasperserver-pro",
    recursive: false
}));
 
// call 1
folderContentQuery.folderUri("/uri1").run(doSomethingWithResultFunction);
...
// call 2 after some time
folderContentQuery.folderUri("/uri2").run(doSomethingWithResultFunction);

Reusing Search Results

Code example:

var call = new ResourcesSearch({
    server:"http://localhost:8080/jasperserver-pro",
    folderUri: "/public",
    recursive: false
})).run(function(resourceLookups){
    // data() available here
});
// at this point call.data() will return null until the run callback is called.  
call.data() === null // -> true 
 
..... 
// if some data was obtained earlier, it accessible via data()
var resourceLookups = call.data();

Discovering Available Types

You can write code to discover and display the types that can be searched and types of sorting that can be specified.

visualize({
    auth: {
        name: "jasperadmin",
        password: "jasperadmin",
        organization: "organization_1"
    }
}, function (v) {
 
    buildControl("Resources types", v.resourcesSearch.types);    
    buildControl("Resources search sort types", v.resourcesSearch.sortBy); 
 
});
function buildControl(name, options) {
 
        function buildOptions(options) {
            var template = "<option>{value}</option>";
            return options.reduce(function (memo, option) {
                return memo + template.replace("{value}", option);
            }, "")
        }
 
    console.log(options);
 
    if (!options.length){
        console.log(options);
    }
 
    var template = "<label>{label}</label><select>{options}</select><br>",
        content = template.replace("{label}", name)
                .replace("{options}", buildOptions(options));
 
    $("#container").append($(content));
}
