class %Archive.Content extends %Library.RegisteredObject

An Archive Content is an object of source or target of Archive operations (cf. %Archive.Session)

Sample script that creates an Archive Content object for a (source) file or files to be archived:

     Set ContentOref = ##class(%Archive.Content).%New() 
     Set ContentOref.Name = "File" // description of the content 
     Set ContentOref.RetentionSpec = 0 // a retention period or class name 
     Set Status = ContentOref.AddSource(SourceFilePath1,"Test File 1") // path of the source file and a brief description ("tagname") 
     // and if there are more files to store (as a single content) --
     Set Status = ContentOref.AddSource(SourceFilePath2,"Test File 2") 
     // and so on
Sample script that creates an Archive Content object for a file or files as the target of a retrieval:
     Set ContentOref = ##class(%Archive.Content).%New() 
     Set Status = ContentOref.DataSink.Insert(TargetFilePath1) 
     // and if the content contains more than one file --
     Set Status = ContentOref.DataSink.Insert(TargetFilePath2) 
     // and so on
