2016-12-13 02:24:54 GMT <digcat> I went to an interesting Redhat session the other day, Redhat talking about Open Source, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LtWioDu9QOw&index=3&list=PLgT9pz799l7Ei6r5Q6Sm2Za6UfhGztToA

2016-12-13 09:11:40 GMT <DarkStar1> and a soon-to-be merry christmas wishes all around

2016-12-13 09:27:21 GMT <AFaust> DarKStar1: "soon-to-be merry christmas wishes" => That sounds like your starting your day off with some alcoholic holiday beverages then...

2016-12-13 09:29:24 GMT * praisethemoon_ knows that feel

2016-12-13 09:30:04 GMT *** praisethemoon_ is now known as praisethemoon

2016-12-13 09:49:45 GMT <DarkStar1> AxelFaust: Mulled wine is permitted at this time of day everyday right?

2016-12-13 09:57:29 GMT <fcorti> Hi all, in the past days we had an exchange about the Solr6 introduction in Alfresco Community Edition (and Alfresco One Early Access release).

2016-12-13 09:57:37 GMT <fcorti> I feel like it is not clear enough so I’m happy to clarify here.

2016-12-13 09:57:45 GMT <fcorti> Since Alfresco 201611 EA release, Solr6.3 is supported although Solr4 remains the default.

2016-12-13 09:57:45 GMT <fcorti> https://community.alfresco.com/docs/DOC-6467-alfresco-community-edition-201611-ea-release-notes#jive_content_id_Alfresco_Search_Services__SOLR_6__SEARCH3

2016-12-13 09:57:48 GMT <alfbot> Title: Alfresco Community Edition 201611 EA Release Notes | Alfresco Community (at community.alfresco.com)

2016-12-13 09:57:57 GMT <fcorti> As part of the introduction we are also separating the distribution of Solr from the platform to allow us to update it more regularly in the future.

2016-12-13 09:57:57 GMT <fcorti> Administrators who want to deploy Solr 6 can download the new Alfresco Search Services artefact and install from there.

2016-12-13 09:58:04 GMT <fcorti> About the installation task, the documentation is lacking at the moment.

2016-12-13 09:58:04 GMT <fcorti> The Search Team is planning to develop a post in the next weeks, until the official documentation will be released.

2016-12-13 09:58:04 GMT <fcorti> We don’t plan to have the official documentation in docs.alfresco.com before the Alfresco One 5.2 GA release on March.

2016-12-13 09:58:10 GMT <fcorti> About the Search Services source code.

2016-12-13 09:58:10 GMT <fcorti> The intention is to release it as open source and it is already available in Maven into the Alfresco Nexus (public link below).

2016-12-13 09:58:12 GMT <fcorti> The Team is planning to share the code in gitlab or other place to be defined… I’ll give an update once it will be defined.

2016-12-13 10:10:05 GMT <AxelFaust> Has anyone ever mapped an objectSid as a group name via LDAP/AD?

2016-12-13 11:00:44 GMT <Irena> Hi all :). I have a question - can someone here help me with creating a popup form in Activiti (I know there is an activiti forum, but if there is someone here it would be much faster)

2016-12-13 11:00:46 GMT <Irena> ?

2016-12-13 11:06:12 GMT <fcorti> Hi Irena, if you won't have a faster reply, I submit to your attention the Acitivi forum below

2016-12-13 11:35:48 GMT <Hiten> Hi Guys,

2016-12-13 11:36:10 GMT <Hiten> During one of my actions I want to disable versioning completely

2016-12-13 11:36:24 GMT <Hiten> hence in my code I am doing this

2016-12-13 11:36:33 GMT <Hiten> checkOutCheckInService.checkin(workingNode, null);

2016-12-13 11:36:48 GMT <Hiten> as per documentation this should not increase the version

2016-12-13 11:37:10 GMT <Hiten> but I can see that the latest version is increased by minor number

2016-12-13 11:37:15 GMT <Hiten> from 2.0 --> 2.1

2016-12-13 11:37:39 GMT <Hiten> can anyone please let me know why this is happening

2016-12-13 11:38:08 GMT <Hiten> and the way how to disable versioning during my custom action

2016-12-13 11:44:50 GMT <iwkse> Hiten: I think you have to remove that aspect

2016-12-13 11:44:57 GMT <iwkse> not sure if it will work though

2016-12-13 11:45:14 GMT <iwkse> I believe you need it disabled only in such occasion

2016-12-13 11:51:19 GMT <Hiten> @iwkse: Yes, I need it disabled only during my action

2016-12-13 12:32:28 GMT <Loftux> ___Dave: Is the "Create Link" button that is added to doclib copy dialog aikau based? Because the localisation to Swedish doesn't kick in (copy and cancel button does), and the only place there is a properties file for this is in Aikau.

2016-12-13 12:35:12 GMT <Loftux> ___Dave: Found it, it is not, it is my localisation project that didn't get all files

2016-12-13 12:56:48 GMT <___Dave> Loftux: Sorry for slow reply, was at lunch

2016-12-13 12:57:23 GMT <___Dave> the Create Link text is in both Aikau and standard Share locale files (as it sounds like you've found)

2016-12-13 12:59:38 GMT <Loftux> ___Dave: No problem, found just when I asked. I have a script that pulls in the latest properties files, and for some reason it missed this until I ran it a second time.

2016-12-13 13:25:51 GMT <douglascrp> qq question about share timeout

2016-12-13 13:26:22 GMT <douglascrp> sometimes, when the user saves something using the edit-metadata, due to eventual slowness in the server, share fails in response for a timeout

2016-12-13 13:26:47 GMT <douglascrp> where can I increase the time share keeps waiting for a response

2016-12-13 13:29:09 GMT <yreg> douglascrp, share-config.xml probably

2016-12-13 13:29:18 GMT <yreg> grep for timeout

2016-12-13 13:29:38 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, I did so, but the only timeout option I found there is related with the treeview

2016-12-13 13:29:53 GMT <douglascrp> I believe this is something deeper, like share, spring or even tomcat config

2016-12-13 13:30:02 GMT <douglascrp> but I'm not sure which one will change this behaviour

2016-12-13 13:31:06 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, http://cris.ecminthecloud.com/alfresco-share-error-status-408-read-timed-out/

2016-12-13 13:31:08 GMT <alfbot> Title: Alfresco Share: Error status 408 Read timed out @ Cris in the cloud (at cris.ecminthecloud.com)

2016-12-13 13:31:09 GMT <douglascrp> I believe this is it

2016-12-13 13:31:35 GMT <douglascrp> well, something like that, as this is for 3.4

2016-12-13 13:34:16 GMT <douglascrp> there is no such property in the latest version of alfresco and share

2016-12-13 13:43:26 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, maybe increasing the connectionTimeout="20000" parameter in the 8080 connector

2016-12-13 13:43:34 GMT <douglascrp> I think I'm going to test this option

2016-12-13 13:51:19 GMT <AxelFaust> douglascrp: There is a timeout in the endoint connector configuration

2016-12-13 13:51:34 GMT <AxelFaust> The server.xml connectionTimeout is not really relevant for this.

2016-12-13 13:51:47 GMT <douglascrp> AxelFaust, nice

2016-12-13 13:51:59 GMT <AxelFaust> That only controls how long a request will wait to be processed by a connector / thread pool thread before giving up.

2016-12-13 13:52:01 GMT <douglascrp> endpoint? do you know the file where it's defined?

2016-12-13 13:52:25 GMT <AxelFaust> E.g. if there are more requests currently hitting the server than the configured maxThreads

2016-12-13 13:52:42 GMT <AxelFaust> you typically define those endpoints in share-config-custom.xml

2016-12-13 13:52:48 GMT <douglascrp> ah, got it

2016-12-13 13:52:51 GMT <douglascrp> ok, let me try

2016-12-13 13:52:52 GMT <douglascrp> tks

2016-12-13 13:52:54 GMT <AxelFaust> I am talking about the "Remote" configuration sections

2016-12-13 13:53:02 GMT <douglascrp> yes, now I understand

2016-12-13 13:56:15 GMT <AxelFaust> Ahh - it looks like I am mistaken. The timeout you configure in the endpoint/connctor session is related to the "reconnect" timeout - e.g. how long it takes after a timeout for the connector to allow another request.

2016-12-13 13:56:19 GMT <yreg> https://github.com/Alfresco/share/blob/ada374fd2a6538416255e39f27b31ab38bbfdc3a/share/src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/web.xml#L196

2016-12-13 13:56:20 GMT <alfbot> Title: share/web.xml at ada374fd2a6538416255e39f27b31ab38bbfdc3a · Alfresco/share · GitHub (at github.com)

2016-12-13 13:56:27 GMT <AxelFaust> the actual read read timeout is configured somewhere else

2016-12-13 13:56:32 GMT <yreg> isn't this the line you are looking for douglascrp

2016-12-13 13:56:45 GMT <AxelFaust> That is the session timeout - this is for the HTTP session of Share

2016-12-13 13:57:00 GMT <AxelFaust> And it is 60 minutes

2016-12-13 13:58:00 GMT <AxelFaust> douglascrp: Looks like you will have to override the "connector.remoteclient" bean in a custom slingshot application context file.

2016-12-13 13:58:08 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, AxelFaust yes, that's for session

2016-12-13 13:58:13 GMT <douglascrp> it's not what I'm looking for

2016-12-13 13:58:31 GMT <douglascrp> AxelFaust, like this? http://cris.ecminthecloud.com/alfresco-share-error-status-408-read-timed-out/

2016-12-13 13:58:34 GMT <alfbot> Title: Alfresco Share: Error status 408 Read timed out @ Cris in the cloud (at cris.ecminthecloud.com)

2016-12-13 13:58:38 GMT <AxelFaust> See https://svn.alfresco.com/repos/alfresco-open-mirror/services/surf-webscripts/trunk/spring-webscripts/spring-webscripts/src/main/resources/org/springframework/extensions/webscripts/spring-webscripts-application-context.xml for the default

2016-12-13 13:59:14 GMT <AxelFaust> Yes - that is basically what I am talking about (though I have not translated the text)

2016-12-13 13:59:25 GMT <douglascrp> AxelFaust, ah, ok

2016-12-13 13:59:26 GMT <douglascrp> perfect

2016-12-13 13:59:28 GMT <douglascrp> let me try

2016-12-13 13:59:34 GMT <douglascrp> thank you AxelFaust and yreg

2016-12-13 15:08:34 GMT <fwu> hi all!

2016-12-13 17:22:55 GMT <fwu> any ideas about this error: "exception" : "org.springframework.extensions.webscripts.WebScriptException - 11130011 Wrapped Exception (with status template): null",

2016-12-13 17:26:57 GMT <fwu> this is for a custom backed end java web script

2016-12-13 17:37:07 GMT <yreg> fwu, that's an exception wrapper you would probably need to see the cause of that exception a bit later in your logs

2016-12-13 17:43:49 GMT <fwu> I dont have nothing more in the logs...

2016-12-13 17:51:44 GMT <fwu> "callstack" : [ "" ,"java.lang.NullPointerException" ,"

2016-12-13 17:51:56 GMT <fwu> but this nullpointer doesnt seems in my custom code

2016-12-13 18:06:32 GMT <fwu> hmm it seems this line is throwing an error:

2016-12-13 18:06:34 GMT <fwu> WorkflowTask updatedTask = workflowService.updateTask(taskId, params, null, null);

2016-12-13 18:06:47 GMT <fwu> Im almost sure this already worked

2016-12-13 18:07:09 GMT <fwu> im passing taskid for sure and params. So why a null pointer?
