how to relate custom pagetype to cms_Document?

kyle shapiro asked on May 3, 2018 22:34

I want to query all the CMS_Document.[documentName]s where custom_page_type.[custom_field] = 'Y'. How in Kentico's database do you relate a custom table (representing a pagetype you've created) to CMS_Document? I'm on version 8.2 if it matters.

in 8 you still have views for each custom page type: select DocumentName, * from View_[custom type table name]_Joined where [custom_field] = 'Y'

If we take articles type as example your view is called: select * from View_CONTENT_Article_Joined

to find appropriate view SELECT * FROM sys.views where name like '%atricle%' i.e. find me all views with article word in it.

P.S. To make without any view and work in any version you just do (if we use article type as example)

SELECT DocumentName,* from View_CMS_Tree_Joined
JOIN CONTENT_Article on DocumentForeignKeyValue = ArticleID and ClassName ='CMS.Article'
WHERE ArticleName = 'bla bla'

This above will work in any version
