Retrieve room’s info from a customer's class for Room UI Command

Hi, everyone

I have developed a class for our own UI Command in a room on the basis of the example code SimpleOneStepScreenflow at flexible ui one-step-screenflow.article.

This class can be executed by our own label that has been added in the Hover Menu Encapsulating Command. The hover menu is attached to each document that has been uploaded under directory Documents in a collaboration room.

Now I need to implement retrieving the current room’s info, like room’s name, room’s owner etc,

How can I get RID object for the current room?

Any hint will be appreciated.

Best regards.

    Hi Wang,

    I'm not sure (and have no time to check out) if there is an officially-to-be-used API to get back the way from a room's folder ID to the room ID. At least, you could do it "manually":

    Under room_structures/<RoomRID> you'll find links to the corresponding folders under room_extensions/cm_stores/documents/workspaces. From your command you will have some Resource RID path like /room_extensions/cm_stores/documents/workspaces/48a118fe-0101-0010-5780-8d175b3669a6/...; searching through the first repository given above for a link pointing to such a folder would return the corresponding room (from the room repositories, the rooms are linked to the folders, but not back from the folders to the rooms.

    UPDATE: Just saw that on the folder /room_extensions/cm_stores/documents/workspaces/48a118fe-0101-0010-5780-8d175b3669a6 you'll find a property consumer_id, having the room RID 😊 (and beneath this, the consumer_name with the room DisplayName). Sometimes things are relatively easy 😊

    Hope it helps


    PS: The question isn't marked as question, did yoe de-mark it or is it a system failure?!
