I am trying to add new column to Dashboard View in SDL Web 8.5 and following the instructions provided by SDL here

Event handler is working as expected and is adding custom attribute ext:ExpirationDate the value to response when GetList is invoked.

I am able to see the header for the table but there is no content. Refer to screenshot below: enter image description here

Tridion configuration: enter image description here

Issue seems to be with the namespace 'http://www.tridion.com/ContentManager/R5/Extension' which is not recognized; although it has been configured in GUI extension configuration.

I was able to resolve the issue by directly adding adding namespace to \web\WebUI\Editors\CME\Xml\ListDefinitions\ListItems.xml

enter image description here

Am I missing any step? Any help would be appreciated. We do not want to update any out of the box configuration.

    I don't think we need to include that namespace anymore. Here is a working example. You can try that - github.com/justsayantan/PublishedEnvironemntDataExtender/blob/… Commented Jun 3, 2019 at 13:25
  • '@paras' '@glens' - I am facing the similar issue in 9.1. Were you able to fix it with the hotfix? do we need hotfix for 9.1 as well?

  • Yes. I was able to resolve the issue with the hotfix. But had to update out-of-the-box ListView.js at TRIDION_HOME/web/webUI/Core/Control/List for filtering to work.

I'd recommend reaching out to SDL Support to request access to hotfix CME_8.5.0.9078 (http://csei.sdl.com/hotfixes/#/hotfixes/c)

  • Thanks Glen. Is there a way to filter the results based on item type? Requirement is add column only for Structure groups.
