    Help with Bootstrapping/ VersionHandler
    #1 by mnicklisch on Mar 9, 2017 11:37:39 AM


    I have a question regarding Boostrapping configurations for my module and I can't find the information in the documentation.

    I have a module with some configurations for my app. I import this configuration via the bootstrapping mechanism. I export the config as XML and put it into the boostrap directory. As I can see, when exporting this, Magnolia creates UUIDs for the entries.

    How do I make sure that there will be no conflicts when these configs are imported?

    I had the case once, when I build a jar file for my module and put into the bundle installation of Magnolia, I had some entries that could not be imported due to UUID conflicts. How can I prevent this when we deploy our module elsewhere?

    Is this done by the VersionHandler class of my module? I looked at the versionHandler of other modules, but I don't really understand them.

    Could you give me some more information about this topic?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Matthias,

    This can be done by adding an additional parameter to your bootstrap task:

    new BootstrapSingleModuleResource("name", "description",
    "config.modules.yourModule.yourConfigFile.xml", ImportUUIDBehavior.IMPORT_UUID_CREATE_NEW);
