  • name
    Full author's name;
  • role

    • 1, author is registered in the Sugar Network (and guid key is set);
    • 2, author is the original author of the corresponding resource; if it is not set, user is only a maintainer, e.g., an uploader of a book which has its original authors.


This is a system level property to to track object's condition. It is a list of states set by the system during the object life cycle. Users cannot directly write to this property. Currently supported states are:
  • deleted set after removing objects by users; right after user deletes, the object still remains in the system but becomes inaccessible to user requests;
  • favorite applied only to local Context objects, set if user stared the object;
  • checkin applied only to local Context objects, set if user pinned some of Context releases to keep permanently in the local system.
