Restrict evolutionComposer mentions to certain content types?

Is there a way to restrict the content types that an evolutionComposer configured for the mentions plugin returns?

For example, restrict it so you can only mention Groups or Users, nothing else.

  • The retrieval of mentionables is defined by the onMentionalList method implementation on the mentions composer plugin.  The default implementation is below and can be modified and applied as an override:

    $.fn.evolutionComposer.plugins.mentions.defaults = {

    onMentionableList: function(query, complete) {

    $.telligent.evolution.get({

    url: $.telligent.evolution.site.getBaseUrl() + 'api.ashx/v2/mentionables.json?IncludeFields=Token,PreviewHtml',

    data: {

    QueryText: query,

    PageSize: 20

    },

    cache: false,

    dataType: 'json',

    success: function(response) {

    if(response.Mentionables && response.Mentionables.length > 0) {

    var results = $.map(response.Mentionables, function(mentionable) {

    return { name: mentionable.PreviewHtml, token: mentionable.Token };

    });

    complete(results);

    } else {

    complete(null);

    }

    }

    });

    }

    };

    Note that the REST endpoint for mentionables does enable filtering, but only of a single type.  To implement support for only two content types, you'd need to issue two queries and combine the results.
