connector comments transformer issues

sam detweiler (12.5k6195201) | asked Oct 12 '10, 9:48 a.m.
so, looking thru the cq gw source I see this formatter


that documents the text (toString) format of the cq note as


so, formatting my incoming text comment string that way and selecting the comment transformer, I get java.lang.RuntimeException: The value "usertext" for property "Comments" is invalid, because it cannot be interpreted as item identifiers (UUIDs)

I found this page on the setup of the user synch of comment entries

and that config for contributor I have, and it works to my remote manager.

when I use that as the sync rule on the comment transformer config, I get
Incoming at 10/12/10 8:44:32 AM CDT
Error occurred:
java.lang.RuntimeException: The value "user==usertext!FIELD!text==this%20is%20a%20test%20update%20of%20a%20work%20item!NOTE_ENTRY!" for property "Comments" is invalid, because it cannot be interpreted as external references (URIs)

So, I am back to confused again..

can someone document the rules for the comment transformer, for NON-CQ incoming/outgoing comments.

or tell me that I have to write my own transformer..(in which case the generic transformer should be renamed to CQ specific name)

altho I have comment set as in/out, and I can manually add them to workitems created thru my itemconnector, I don't see the data on the outgoing synchronizations..

so I set the Comments field to outbound synch only and am looking at the status for this item..

it shows

user==uuid!FIELD!text==comment text!NOTE_ENTRY!

the key here is the user is in UUID format.

I thought by specifying the user sync rule (which works for work item CreatedBy) that this would work for the comments.. else how else would u do it?

If I specify the workitem comment transformer and NOT my user sync rule, I get the error

user==usertext_string is not in UUID format... as expected
this means it was parsed off, and doesn't match a user..

if I specify the user sync rule, and no change in the comment content
I get

user==usertext_string!FIELD!text==comment text!NOTE_ENTRY!

for some reason the user string is NOT parsed properly

anyone have any ideas how I find the current workitem fro the context passed in the transformer?

the comment stream is inadequate for the correct synchronzation. as there is no timestamp data.. I need this to tell of this comment should be transported, in either direction
