Elvis 6 bundled plug-in - Move files and folders

Elvis 6 sample plug-in - Move files and folders

The move plug-in can move assets and folders in Elvis. This can be useful to move production data to an archive, for example.

Note: This bundled plug-in is supported for production use.

Tip: If you want to prevent users from moving content, don't give them move rights but let them use metadata (field with pulldown value "move") and use this plug-in to move them to another zone.


The plug-in configuration is for flexibility reasons, not handled through the plug-in configuration file. You will need some technical skills to configuring this plug-in correctly.

Files can be moved using a query, defined in a move webservice call inside the <cleanup>/xsl/move-request.xml file. This gives you a lot flexibility on what you want to remove.

Warning: Be careful, if you do not understand what you're doing, creating an incorrect query results in unwanted moved files.

Please read SOAP - introduction first so you understand what you are doing. Also, you can use a tool like soapUI to test you query with a search webservice call before using it in this plug-in.
