AEM5.6: Socoadmin: reply button and refresh issues in moderation UI

Issue

If you are using the classic UI (/socoadmin) for social moderation in AEM5.6, you may notice some strange behaviour as follows

Reply button disabled
1) Go to http://localhost:4502/socoadmin
2) Select a blog comment from Geometrixx

Result: reply button is always disabled.  Expected: reply button to be enabled for blog comments.

Refresh issue
1) Go to http://localhost:4502/socoadmin
2) Select a forum post from Geometrixx
3) Click the Deny button

Result: status remains OK (same for Approve and Spam actions).  Expected: page refreshes and status is updated to Denied.  Note: Refreshing the page manually shows the correct status.

Reason

These issues are caused by a missing property (id=cq-collabadmin) on the /libs/collab/core/content/admin node in the repository related to the collaboration objects.

Solution

These issues will be fixed in a future version of AEM.  These issues do not occur in CQ5.5, or using the new touch UI in AEM5.6.

Workaround

To resolve the issues (no refresh and reply disabled), install the following overlay for AEM5.6: 44362-socoadminFix-1.0.zip

This overlays the /libs/collab/core/content/admin node and adds the missing id=cq-collabadmin property. Afterwards the reply button in socoadmin is enabled for blog comments, and a refresh occurs as expected after an Approve/Deny/Spam is executed.
