Models

class indico.modules.attachments.models.attachments.Attachment(**kwargs)

A simple constructor that allows initialization from kwargs.

Sets attributes on the constructed instance using the names and values in kwargs.

Only keys that are present as attributes of the instance’s class are allowed. These could be, for example, any mapped columns or relationships.

property absolute_download_url

The absolute download url for the attachment.

access_key = None
acl

The ACL of the folder (used for ProtectionMode.protected)

acl_entries
all_files
can_access(user, *args, **kwargs)

Check if the user is allowed to access the attachment.

This is the case if the user has access to see the attachment or if the user can manage attachments for the linked object.

description

The description of the attachment

property download_url

The download url for the attachment.

file
file_id
folder

The folder containing the attachment

folder_id

query: IndicoBaseQuery

A SQLAlchemy query for a model. Equivalent to db.session.query(Model). Can be customized per-model by overriding query_class.

Warning

The query interface is considered legacy in SQLAlchemy. Prefer using session.execute(select()) instead.

class indico.modules.attachments.models.folders.AttachmentFolder(**kwargs)

A simple constructor that allows initialization from kwargs.

Sets attributes on the constructed instance using the names and values in kwargs.

Only keys that are present as attributes of the instance’s class are allowed. These could be, for example, any mapped columns or relationships.

access_key = None
acl

The ACL of the folder (used for ProtectionMode.protected)

acl_entries

The link types that are supported. Can be overridden in the model using the mixin. Affects the table structure, so any changes to it should go along with a migration step!

attachments

The list of attachments that are not deleted, ordered by name

can_access(user, *args, **kwargs)

Check if the user is allowed to access the folder.

This is the case if the user has access the folder or if the user can manage attachments for the linked object.

can_view(user)

Check if the user can see the folder.

This does not mean the user can actually access its contents. It just determines if it is visible to him or not.

category
category_id
contribution
contribution_id
description

The description of the folder

event
event_id
events_backref_name = 'all_attachment_folders'

The name of the backref that’s added to the Event model to access all linked objects

classmethod get_for_linked_object(linked_object, preload_event=False)

Get the attachments for the given object.

This only returns attachments that haven’t been deleted.

Parameters:
  • linked_object – A category, event, session, contribution or subcontribution.

  • preload_event – If all attachments for the same event should be pre-loaded and cached in the app context. This must not be used when linked_object is a category.

classmethod get_or_create(linked_object, title=None, **create_kwargs)

Get a folder for the given object or create it.

If no folder title is specified, the default folder will be used. It is the caller’s responsibility to add the folder or an object (such as an attachment) associated with it to the SQLAlchemy session using db.session.add(...).

Additional kwargs will be used when creating a custom folder; in case of a default folder they must not be used.

classmethod get_or_create_default(linked_object)

Get the default folder for the given object or creates it.

id

The ID of the folder

is_always_visible

If the folder is always visible (even if you cannot access it)

is_default

If the folder is the default folder (used for “folder-less” files)

is_deleted

If the folder has been deleted

is_hidden

If the folder is never shown in the frontend (even if you can access it)

The laziness of the backref that’s added to the linked objects

The name of the backref that’s added to the linked objects

linked_event
linked_event_id
locator

Define a smart locator property.

This behaves pretty much like a normal read-only property and the decorated function should return a dict containing the necessary data to build a URL for the object.

This decorator should usually be applied to a method named locator as this name is required for get_locator to find it automatically when just passing the object.

If you need more than one locator, you can define it like this:

@locator_property
def locator(self):
    return {...}

@locator.other
def locator(self):
    return {...}

The other locator can then be accessed by passing obj.locator.other to the code expecting an object with a locator.

own_no_access_contact = None
protection_mode
property protection_parent

The parent object to consult for ProtectionMode.inheriting.

session

subcontribution
subcontribution_id
title

The name of the folder (None for the default folder)

If only one link per object should be allowed. This may also be a string containing an SQL string to specify the criterion for the unique index to be applied, e.g. 'is_foo = true'.

class indico.modules.attachments.models.principals.AttachmentFolderPrincipal(**kwargs)

local_group_id
multipass_group_name
