Checking in all objects


At some point, you may need a script that dynamically checks-in all checked-out objects. For Kentico 11 instances, this script should do the trick!

There may be cases where you’d like to check-in all of your pages and objects while using content locking and object locking. For example, it is recommended to have all objects checked-in before performing an upgrade. The following code will loop through all objects which support object locking and check them in.


Note: When this code is run, objects that are checked-out which contain changes will not be saved, and will be reverted to their state before being checked-out. You should inform users to manually check-in any objects which contain changes that you’d like to save.


To use this code, you can create a custom web part or place it in an ASPX template or web form. Please make sure this is placed in a secure location where it can't be clicked by unathorized users. In the .ascx or .aspx file, add the following code:


<%@ Register TagPrefix="cms" TagName="AsyncLog" Src="~/CMSAdminControls/AsyncLogDialog.ascx" %> <asp:Button runat="server" Text="Check in all" OnClick="btnCheckIn_Click" /> <asp:Panel Visible="false" runat="server" ID="pnlLog"> <cms:AsyncLog ID="ctlAsyncLog" PostbackOnFinish="false" runat="server" ProvideLogContext="true" /> </asp:Panel>


In the code-behind, add the code that will run when the button is clicked:


protected void btnCheckIn_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) { pnlLog.Visible = true; ctlAsyncLog.EnsureLog(); ctlAsyncLog.RunAsync(CheckInAllObjects, WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent()); } private void CheckInAllObjects(object parameter) { var objectTypes = ObjectTypeManager.AllObjectTypes; List<string> processTypes = new List<string>(); processTypes.Add("cms.document"); foreach (string ot in objectTypes) { var typeInfo = ObjectTypeManager.GetTypeInfo(ot); if (typeInfo.SupportsLocking) { processTypes.Add(ot); } } ctlAsyncLog.AddLog($"Checking in objects from {processTypes.Count()} types.."); foreach (string t in processTypes) CheckInObjects(t); ctlAsyncLog.AddLog("Done!"); } private void CheckInObjects(string type) { try { ctlAsyncLog.AddLog($"Processing {type}.."); var oq = new ObjectQuery(type); IEnumerable<BaseInfo> objects = oq.TypedResult; foreach (var baseInfo in objects) { if (type.Equals("cms.document")) { if(baseInfo.GetIntegerValue("NodeSKUID", 0) > 0) { var node = baseInfo as SKUTreeNode; node.SKU = SKUInfoProvider.GetSKUInfo(node.NodeSKUID); if (node.IsCheckedOut) { node.CheckIn(); node.Update(); } } else { var node = baseInfo as TreeNode; if (node.IsCheckedOut) { node.CheckIn(); node.Update(); } } } else { if (baseInfo.ObjectSettings.ObjectCheckedOutByUserID > 0) { baseInfo.ObjectSettings.ObjectCheckedOutByUserID = 0; baseInfo.Update(); } } } } catch (Exception e) { ctlAsyncLog.AddError(e.Message); } }
