API / Content Services / Tree

Tree Content that is organized into folders can be retrieved using the Tree API. The Tree API lets you pull back an entire path-based folder and file structure of content within a single API call. The API call lets you specify a root node, a maximum depth to traverse down the path structure, paths that should be automatically expanded and query terms for filtering of root nodes. The Tree API is deal to support a variety of cases including: retrieval of multiple deeply-nested paths within a singl

API / Content Models / Relator Properties

Relator Properties Cloud CMS provides support for properties that auto-manage their relationships between multiple nodes in the content graph. Whenever you intend to connect two nodes together, it is often convenient to model a property on one or both of the nodes involved in the relationship such that the properties maintain information locally on the endpoints about the relationship. Such properties are known as relator properties. Consider a Store that sells Books. Books are written by Author

API / Security / Security

Security Cloud CMS provides two ways to describe access rights to things: Object-level / role-based authorities Team / role-based authorities With object-level / role-based authorities, you assign a principal (either a user or a group) a role against something. For example, you might give Joe the CONSUMER role against a content node. When Joe then interacts with the content node in the future, he will do so with the CONSUMER role which will allow him to "read" the node. With team / role-based au

Cloud CMS Architecture

Cloud CMS has two clusters that we run for customers who host apps with us. One cluster is for the "app server" tier (*.cloudcms.net) and the other is the "API" tier (api.cloudcms.com). The app server cluster consists of Node.js servers, and the API is a Java-backend that is stateless and implements the full REST API: As such, the API doesn't manage connections directly. Any invocation to it is a one-shot where each request contains everything needed to assert the user's identity and proceed wit

How can I reuse connections with the Java Driver?

The Cloud CMS Java Driver uses a thread local variable to store the authentication context it receives after connecting. This is perhaps unusual for folks who are coming from the JavaScript world but should be very familiar for anyone who works with common JavaScript frameworks such as Spring Framework or Spring Security. When the authentication completes, the Java Driver constructs a "Driver" object that it stores into a thread local variable using the following call: DriverContext.setDriver(dr

Cloud CMS Performance Measurement

Performance issues may be outside of Cloud CMS such as being related to firewalls or corporate proxies. One strategy for determining this is to run an ab test to gather timings from your computer to https://api.cloudcms.com or to the user interface server. This gives you a good approximation of where penalties are being paid and you'd expect to see ~70-100ms latency which we consider nominal. Another thing to try is to run a connection test from the command line on the box that you're browsing f

API / Authentication / Connecting

Connecting To connect to Cloud CMS, you need to establish two important pieces of information: The client that you are connecting as The user that you are signing on as The only way that a remote application can connect to your platform is if it can produce the correct credentials to identify itself as a client that you know about. As the platform administrator, you issue a client key/secret ahead of time. The application then needs to present these credentials to you and prove that it is who it
