Display template: How to display occurrence/object subtype?

edited July 2018 in Installation

In EN15907 (filmography), there are different types of events.

Is it possible to define a display that shows the occurrence-subtype of such an event?
Since this is not a metadata element, I couldn't find it in the configuration documentation :(

For example, the event subtypes here are:

  • occurrences
    • Production event
    • Publication event
    • Award
    • IPR Registration
    • Preservation event

And I would like to have an output display like this:

Type: Production event (<- How to do that?)
Date: ^ca_occurrences.cws_Date
Name: ^ca_occurrences.preferred_labels

Any help/hints greatly appreciated :)


  • If these are configured as occurrence types, the code would be: ^ca_occurrences.type_id

  • @Jonathan: Awesoooome! Thanks :) small additional question:
    Which bundle-specifier is to be used for data entered in relationship-UIs?
    (e.g. Object<>Entity relationship)

    The API documentation lists only the main bundle-specifiers, like objects, object lots, entities, etc.

  • Think I've found it! :grin:
    I've made a configuration export (XML) to check the bundle-specifier names in there:
    <userInterface code="cws_ui_hasagent" type="ca_objects_x_entities" typeRestrictions="HasAgent" includeSubtypes="0">

    So, "ca_objects_x_entities" is the bundle-specifier for these relationship-UIs.

  • Yes, that's correct!
