ATContentTypes fails to paste relatedItems and ATPathCriterion, missing schema property

Reported by: mircoangelini Owned by: seanupton
Priority: major Milestone: 4.x
Component: General Version: 4.3
Keywords: Cc: grahamperrin@…

Description (last modified by seanupton) (diff)


Products.Archetypes introduced per #5180 a 'keepReferencesOnCopy' flag/propety for schema, along with a check for said property in Referenceable.manage_afterAdd. ATContentTypes uses ReferenceField in two places (path criterion, relatedItems field) where this flag is not included. Fast-forward five years, this is still a problem that requires a simple solution of opting-into this property in the respective schema in ATCT.


...with relatedItems

  • Create a page with one or more related objects.
  • Copy and paste the page.

The new page will be missing the object(s) related.

With old-style collections / topics

Most Plone 4.2 sites still need to use old-style collections for lack of key features in plone.app.collection, so this is still a worthy priority fix to get into a 4.3.x release.

  • Create a topic (old-style collection), add a path criterion ("Location in site"); choose a specific path.
  • Copy the collection/topic and paste elsewhere.

The criterion will be copied, but not the reference.


  • This was originally reported affecting Plone 3.2.1, but it continues to affect Plone through ~4.3 (as of 2013-03-04).

A highlight from  http://n2.nabble.com/-tp357275p357280.html

a variation on object_paste.cpy. In this case it pastes objects and sets the old object as a related item on the new object.

Modified and updated description, version. There is an easy fix if one takes advantage of a five-year-old feature added in #5180.
