  1. Hi, I'm trying to create an Action to launch a tree widget similar to the one used to create Links between Objects. This is to help me copy Task structure from another Project. I tried querying all descendant items from a Project but it's taking a little bit of time and the Links widget seems to be pretty fast and is structured in a hierarchy. I couldn't find any straight answer to use a widget with Python Actions. If it can't be done this way, is there any other way to copy structure? Because we do it so often it would be easier to have a quick shortcut without going back and forth. Task
  2. Hello, I'm new to Ftrack and I'm trying to write an action that displays info about what is selected (type, name, id etc). Mainly this is for us developers because I couldn't see a way to see the id of an object on the web front end. The problem I'm having is that whatever I select returns task as the entityType, whether it is a task or not. If you then query the session with the correct type and the entityId, you get a result otherwise you get None. My workaround for this would be to query every type until I got a result but in order to that I need a list of object types. How can I
  3. Hey there! I'm hoping to get an example/explanation of this Tip on https://help.ftrack.com/developing-with-ftrack/key-concepts/actions I input the same label and set the "variant" attribute on 2 of my actions to different strings, but there are still 2 icons appearing, labeled with the same name. What is the actual outcome of this when done correctly? Is there an example you can provide so I can troubleshoot what I'm doing wrong? Thanks!

  5. After the action deletes the objects, the page needs to be reloaded in order to get the right view is there a way to auto refresh the site?
  6. Hi, I've created an event listener to require comments when logging time on certain tasks, and thought I should share it with the community. It shows the usage of triggering and handling an actions UI based on an event. Please let me know if you have any comments or feedback. You can find the snippet on bitbucket. Event listener: Require timelog comments The event listener can be used to require comments when logging time against certain tasks from the ftrack interface. The event listener will trigger an Action UI to require timelog comments if the custom attribu
  7. Hi, i run in strange issue lately. During setup of new Action somehow happens, that one version of this action "baked", sorry for this expression, but i cant find better. This ghost action appears, even if there is no ftrack-connect running. At first I thought that it was just duplicated action, caused by wrong register setup (the action appears twice). But after i renamed label, it stayed there with previous name. Everybody sees this non-existing action, even with no ftrack-connect running (in that case this is the only available action). It obviously starts my old code, but t
  8. Hi all, I created an action with a form to let user change some options. It is working fine BUT I would like to set a default value for an enum field and don't see how in the doc. If it is not possible I would like to indicate a required field to the user... Here is the data I send to ftrack for creating the form: ```'items': [ {'value': '## You are about to ship the list: {} ##'.format(flist.getName()), 'type': 'label'}, {'label': 'Action', 'type': 'enumerator', 'name': 'action', 'data': [ {'label': 'Export 1', 'value': 'myval1'}, {'lab
  9. I have written a custom action to upload a reference movie clip to a shot in ftrack. Once the action is launched, it creates a movie from images on disk and then uploads this movie as an attachment to the shot. After the action is launched, the movie creation and upload runs asynchronously. What's the best way to give feedback to the user regarding the asynchronous processes? I can output messages to the terminal, but an artist may not look at their terminal or even have it open. How can I do I give feedback in the ftrack web UI? Thanks, Natasha

    Unreal Engine action

    I'm messing around with connect and I'm finally getting some things to work, like launching Houdini. That tutorial was great because it showed the structure so I was able to just plop it in my project and it worked. I was then able to follow through the doc guide and change things around to see how it was all working. I'd like to go a step further and try to apply what I've learned so I can launch Unreal Engine 4 (UE4). I don't have any real plans or needs for totally integrating it into ftrack, I'd just like to see if I can launch it. Here is my project hierarchy right now. I'd li
  11. Hi, I've created custom actions, but i've no way to change the icons displayed by the server. How am i supposed to do ? (Ftrack is hosted in local) Regard
  12. - I'm trying to get the create folder example working in my current project, but I'm getting this error: register() takes no arguments (1 given) - I know that when the register() method is defined it should be written like this: def register(self ): etc... - However, there doesn't seem to be a register method being declared within the CreateFoldersAction class. Does this method get inherited from ftrack.Action? -Also, I haven't made any changes to the code and I've set up my hierarchy like so: Thanks!
  13. Hi I have an action, that creates folders and opens them as an explorer window. This action may not always complete successfully if certain things are not set up correctly. So I want to be able to notify the user that the action has failed. There is a 5 sec time out on actions that presents them as failed if there isn't a reply. Unfortunately as the action can at times take longer than 5secs before it can be determined if it ran OK or not, so I had to reply before doing my stuff. `self.session.event_hub.publish_reply(event,data)` That's all fine, but now I need to provide a fur
