2017-01-02 07:57:26 GMT <yreg> Morning everyone !

2017-01-02 07:57:43 GMT <yreg> and Happy New Year !!

2017-01-02 08:02:39 GMT <fcorti> Happy new year to you too yreg and all the people around

2017-01-02 08:25:35 GMT <ycoulon> Hi there

2017-01-02 08:29:56 GMT <bmejias> hi ycoulon

2017-01-02 08:30:19 GMT <ahmedowian> AxelFaust: Yes, I did reply to the public mailing list.

2017-01-02 08:31:36 GMT <ycoulon> Happy new year all

2017-01-02 08:31:37 GMT <AFaust> ahmedowian: Ok - then it doesn't seem to have been delivered / received...

2017-01-02 08:34:01 GMT <ahmedowian> I just re-sent it, this time to the correct email address. ☺

2017-01-02 08:35:36 GMT <AFaust> it already shows up in the archives now

2017-01-02 08:39:34 GMT <yreg> ahmedowian, it got directly to the spam folder

2017-01-02 08:39:56 GMT <yreg> with this message : It has a from address in yahoo.com but has failed yahoo.com's required tests for authentication

2017-01-02 08:40:55 GMT <ahmedowian> What can I do to fix that?

2017-01-02 08:48:48 GMT <Loftux> AFaust: Did you see that it looks like it is the Smart Folders that case db transaction problems?

2017-01-02 08:48:58 GMT <AFaust> I did

2017-01-02 08:51:13 GMT <Loftux> Had planned to use smart folder feature for custom solution for a client, have to re-think this now :(

2017-01-02 08:52:53 GMT <Loftux> Is there any one that has taken the Smart folders into production? Can you try this (put heavy load on the Smart folder), see last comment https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/browse/ALF-21811

2017-01-02 09:00:07 GMT <Loftux> And the hibernate errors is there even if I've turned off Smart Folders… I could at least trigger it with the smart folders.

2017-01-02 09:41:51 GMT <AFaust> Loftux: I must admit, I have not even used Smart Folders again after the first evaluation when it was first included...

2017-01-02 09:43:07 GMT <Hiten> Hi Guys, I want to hide an action from the document preview page. Should I go for the evaluator "evaluator.doclib.action.disableAction" ?? As, I just want to merely hide it and not disable it

2017-01-02 09:43:29 GMT <Hiten> I still want that action to be used as a rule

2017-01-02 09:44:24 GMT <Loftux> AFaust: It essentially just gives you saved searches. Probably can do that in a less intrusive way in the client ui.

2017-01-02 09:44:53 GMT <Loftux> and nor risking messing up core api

2017-01-02 09:45:20 GMT <Loftux> not

2017-01-02 09:45:47 GMT <AFaust> Yeah - back at PRODYNA we actually included Saved Searches as a feature of our own faceted search solution, and saved searches could be stored as "documents" anywhere providing a context action to rerun the search in our Search UI

2017-01-02 09:47:32 GMT <AFaust> The one thing you would not be able to do with Saved Searches alone would be "uploading documents and automatically applying metadata"

2017-01-02 09:47:50 GMT <AFaust> But then that is what simple upload folders with rule sets can be used for

2017-01-02 09:48:52 GMT <Loftux> AFaust: And a rule folder can probably to more, the upload feature is quite limited.

2017-01-02 09:50:03 GMT <AFaust> Hiten: There is not a real difference between hiding or disabling the action

2017-01-02 09:51:17 GMT <AFaust> Hiten: Only if the same action is also included in the browse view might there be a small difference, in that disabling it via an evaluator would mean it is disabled / not available in both views, while "hiding" it might be done by not including it in the action set of the details view

2017-01-02 09:52:30 GMT <AFaust> The problem is though that it is easy to add a new action to an action set, but there is no way to remove an action from an action set without redefining the whole action set. This obviously may not play well together with addons that use a share-configu-custom.xml file instead of extension modules to customize the doclib action sets

2017-01-02 09:54:41 GMT <AFaust> And in case the action "hiding" bit is meant to part of an addon itself, then I feel that is not the right place for it because an addon cannot include an action set redefinition without risking overriding other addons action set additions

2017-01-02 09:55:25 GMT <AFaust> in summary, the only place where an action set redefinition should be allowed is the share-config-custom.xml file in tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/web-extension/

2017-01-02 10:00:30 GMT <Hiten> Thanks AFaust. The action I want to hide is in a addon. I will have to redefine it share-config-custom.xml in web-extension then.

2017-01-02 10:28:14 GMT <yreg> ohej, The issues I had were with the latest stable release of the sdk (2.2), the remarks related to the docs were also for that version (AFAIK there is no official docs yet for sdk 3.0)

2017-01-02 10:29:48 GMT <yreg> ohej, in case this information is relevant, I used alfresco-generator to generate my projects skeleton, and I re-verified context files for virtual classpath/classloader setup multiple times and it seems all OK

2017-01-02 11:48:25 GMT <yreg> f

2017-01-02 12:05:01 GMT <qwebirc1074> Hi Guys, Is there any way to search a non-indexed files using java api

2017-01-02 12:12:40 GMT <AFaust> qwebirc1074: Yes - you can use SearchService.selectNodes to perform XPath queries or SearchService.query() with the FTS query language and a query consistency mode of TRANSACTIONAL to perform database-bound searches

2017-01-02 12:13:58 GMT <AFaust> With the last approach there may be differences between Alfresco version as to the scope of FTS queries supported, and if your files have the cm:indexControl aspect applied the DB FTS query may filter out those results.

2017-01-02 12:14:28 GMT <AFaust> Great - just a couple of seconds to late

2017-01-02 12:14:39 GMT <AFaust> *too late

2017-01-02 12:27:59 GMT <yreg> AFaust, that was instructive for me

2017-01-02 12:28:28 GMT <yreg> be sure your efforts to answer were not in vain <grin>

2017-01-02 12:29:00 GMT <yreg> AFaust, just one thing, when you say may; you mean depending on version

2017-01-02 12:29:07 GMT <yreg> or you are just not that sure ?

2017-01-02 12:29:45 GMT <AFaust> yes, depending on version

2017-01-02 12:30:23 GMT <AFaust> When DB FTS was introduced, cm:indexControl was not respected at all and you could "accidentally" find files hidden from search by design as a user when your query was simple enough

2017-01-02 12:30:59 GMT <AFaust> I have not checked if and for what version they have addressed some issues relating to that (I know I have filed one or two myself)

2017-01-02 12:33:00 GMT <AFaust> Damn - I cannot find the JIRA issues right now and I no longer have access to the Support Portal where I filed them.

2017-01-02 12:55:00 GMT <Hiten> @AFaust - I am not able to hide the action from addon. Can you please check the below pastebin link and let me know if I am doing it correctly.

2017-01-02 12:57:29 GMT <douglascrp> good morning

2017-01-02 12:57:32 GMT <douglascrp> happy new year

2017-01-02 12:57:41 GMT <douglascrp> I have a quick question about AOS

2017-01-02 12:57:49 GMT <douglascrp> is it possible to use it without ssl?

2017-01-02 12:58:08 GMT <douglascrp> I'm in a client where alfresco is going to be accessed only in the local network

2017-01-02 12:58:32 GMT <douglascrp> I tried to create the key “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\Internet\BasicAuthLevel” (REG_DWORD)

2017-01-02 12:58:43 GMT <douglascrp> just like for some older versions, but that is not enough

2017-01-02 13:01:08 GMT <yreg> ~later tell hiten you may want to add a replace="true" to your config ?

2017-01-02 13:01:08 GMT <alfbot> yreg: The operation succeeded.

2017-01-02 13:02:01 GMT <AFaust> Hiten: I can't see an issue on first glance

2017-01-02 13:02:32 GMT <AFaust> ~later tell Hiten: I can't see an issue on first glance

2017-01-02 13:02:32 GMT <alfbot> AFaust: The operation succeeded.

2017-01-02 13:02:43 GMT <ycoulon> hi douglascrp, happy new year too

2017-01-02 13:02:48 GMT <ycoulon> the key and there value depends on windows version. On latest version there is at least 2 key if I remember well

2017-01-02 13:02:48 GMT <AFaust> yreg: replace="true" is a cludge and should be used with caution

2017-01-02 13:03:29 GMT <douglascrp> ycoulon, ah, I see

2017-01-02 13:03:40 GMT <ycoulon> have you checked this page : http://docs.alfresco.com/aos1.1/tasks/aos-config-nonSSL.html ?

2017-01-02 13:03:41 GMT <alfbot> Title: Setting up Alfresco Office Services using a non-SSL connection | Alfresco Documentation (at docs.alfresco.com)

2017-01-02 13:03:41 GMT <douglascrp> I'm reading some docs here, but it seems ssl is required now

2017-01-02 13:03:49 GMT <AFaust> It is like the "synchronized" keyword in Java multi-threading. People use it as a silver bullet without it necessarily being the right solution...

2017-01-02 13:03:55 GMT <douglascrp> ycoulon, yes, that is what I found for an old version

2017-01-02 13:05:45 GMT <AFaust> douglascrp: It is 2017 now - is there ever a valid reason for not using SSL? And in terms of data security in businesses, more damage is done by internal users compared to external attackers.

2017-01-02 13:06:03 GMT <douglascrp> AFaust, yes, I know that :P

2017-01-02 13:06:10 GMT <douglascrp> but we are in brazil

2017-01-02 13:06:18 GMT <douglascrp> it's hard to convince people

2017-01-02 13:06:31 GMT <AFaust> So security is already so low that people just learnt to live without it?

2017-01-02 13:07:53 GMT <douglascrp> almost like that

2017-01-02 13:07:58 GMT <AFaust> And here I thought Brazilian business would have more interest in securing their data, what with all the corruption of public officials by large companies...

2017-01-02 13:08:22 GMT <douglascrp> that's a different case

2017-01-02 13:08:41 GMT <douglascrp> the security they normally use is to block the external access at all

2017-01-02 13:08:48 GMT * AFaust is extremely uninformed about the details of the corruption issues and apologizes for any stereotypical remarks...

2017-01-02 13:09:00 GMT <douglascrp> AFaust, no problem

2017-01-02 13:09:13 GMT <douglascrp> that's how ourselves see our situation

2017-01-02 13:09:25 GMT <douglascrp> nobody is happy with that is going on here

2017-01-02 13:09:38 GMT <douglascrp> it's a shame, but it's true

2017-01-02 15:17:10 GMT <oussama> i'm getting this error "The network name cannot be found." when i try to enter network credentials in order to connect to CIFS

2017-01-02 15:19:04 GMT <oussama> any information on why i'm getting this?

2017-01-02 15:19:21 GMT <oussama> i'm using the same credentials i use to connect to alfresco

2017-01-02 15:39:35 GMT *** mega is now known as Guest40147

2017-01-02 15:57:21 GMT <AxelFaust> oussama: It sounds like the credentials are not the problem. The client can't establish the connection to the server in the first place

2017-01-02 16:03:40 GMT <douglascrp> what is the latest available version of AOS?

2017-01-02 16:03:54 GMT <douglascrp> by looking at the official docs, I see it's 1.1.5

2017-01-02 16:04:01 GMT <douglascrp> but I cannot find a link to download it

2017-01-02 16:04:03 GMT <douglascrp> only 1.1.3

2017-01-02 16:04:13 GMT <AxelFaust> Look into artifacts.alfresco.com

2017-01-02 16:04:27 GMT <douglascrp> ok, let me see

2017-01-02 16:04:27 GMT <douglascrp> tks
