Enable CKAN Activity streams for private datasets?
Is it possible to enable activity streams for private datasets? I've been testing and activity streams are shown for public datasets only.
I checked the /usr/lib/ckan/default/src/ckan/ckan/lib/activity_streams.py file but I couldn't find any line that checks if dataset is public or private... I thought that maybe removing that condition (if exists) would fix my problem.
I'm using CKAN 2.3 (installed form package following these steps: LINK) with Ubuntu 12.04 64bit virtual machine on Azure.
Hope you can help me with this!
I solved the issue. D Read proposal was quite close to the working answer, but the lines to comment were wrong. Despite of this, I'll give D Read a +1 for helping finding the file.
Here is the working fix:
In the activity_streams_session_extension.py file located in /usr/lib/ckan/default/src/ckan/ckan/lib (assuming CKAN 2.3 installation from source), if you want CKAN to store activity streams even if dataset is private, just comment lines 131-132 as you can see here.
In this file, datasets are treated as "packages". So you just need to comment the condition for private packages from:
# Don't create activities for private datasets. if package.private: continue
# Don't create activities for private datasets. #if package.private: # continue
Then, reload Apache and Nginx and that's it!
The code in question is activity_streams_session_extension.py. See:
