Daily Log for #alfresco

2017-01-06 04:02:26 GMT <jpotts1> Is there an open source addon that resurrects the old Alfresco Explorer "paste-as-link" functionality? I know Parashift and Formtek both have commercial solutions for this, but I'm kind of surprised there is not a freely-available one yet

2017-01-06 04:03:23 GMT <jpotts1> I know the underlying repo supports what CMIS calls "multi-filing", so assuming you want to go that route, it's really just a matter of modifying Share so that it handles the case of a doc with multiple parents

2017-01-06 04:03:56 GMT <jpotts1> Of course that's not the only way to approach it.

2017-01-06 04:06:16 GMT <jpotts1> Anyway, if someone knows of an existing project or would consider starting one, let me know. I may be able to partially fund some of it.

2017-01-06 04:16:43 GMT <qwebirc76901> hi

2017-01-06 04:16:58 GMT <qwebirc76901> is anyone here

2017-01-06 05:33:51 GMT <Sandy> Hai Everyone i am facing this issue Transactional update cache org.alfresco.personTransactionalCache is full(1000) in alfresco community 5.1.f, can anyone help me please

2017-01-06 08:12:55 GMT <yreg> Sandy, I bet it is a warning not an error, you could (in most cases) safely ignore that

2017-01-06 08:13:51 GMT <yreg> otherwise you can always make that cache bigger, but depending on what you are doing that might just delay the appearance of the message

2017-01-06 08:14:50 GMT <yreg> Sandy, Do you have LDAP Synchronization on ? ware you doing a full LDAP synchronization ?

2017-01-06 08:15:12 GMT <yreg> or just processing a bulk operation on users or what ?

2017-01-06 09:07:32 GMT <qwebirc42637> hello

2017-01-06 09:08:21 GMT <qwebirc42637> anyone know if you can extend the surf.xml config (dojo packages) without overriding it (similarly to how you would do with share-config-custom)

2017-01-06 09:15:03 GMT <AFaust> yes you can - just don't put replace=true on the config section

2017-01-06 09:15:23 GMT <AFaust> lol - too late

2017-01-06 09:51:39 GMT <AFaust> Who had the idiotic idea of adding the smartfolders-amp-actions-config.xml AFTER share-config-custom.xml in the lookup order? share-config-custom.xml is supposed to have the final say with regards to configuration overrides!

2017-01-06 09:53:04 GMT <AFaust> Also (did not realize that before): Why the heck are JAR META-INF/share-config-custom.xml ordered AFTER alfresco/web-extension/share-config-custom.xml? That way the customer has no way to override idiotic/broken configuration that may ships in a JAR except by using an extension module...

2017-01-06 09:56:41 GMT * AFaust was just ranting - not addressed to anyone in particular...

2017-01-06 10:14:27 GMT <AFaust> https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/browse/ALF-21820

2017-01-06 10:29:56 GMT <AFaust> Putting raw JSON in a share-*config*.xml is the ultimate sign that engineers don't get the power and potential of the Surf config model - raw JSON wrapped in XML cannot be combined or partially replaced like proper XML can, forcing massive copy&paste for trivial customisations and preventing any sort of incremental customisations by modules.

2017-01-06 10:30:44 GMT <AFaust> I have always hated it for doclib table view configuration, and now I realize it continues into smart folders...

2017-01-06 10:31:16 GMT <yreg> agreed

2017-01-06 10:31:49 GMT <yreg> AFaust, do you find SmartFolders reliable enough to be used in production ?

2017-01-06 10:32:07 GMT <yreg> I mean, there must be some reason why they're not active by default

2017-01-06 10:32:24 GMT <AFaust> I must admit, I have not used SmartFolders at all since my first evaluation when they were new, so can't say anything to their reliability

2017-01-06 10:32:53 GMT <AFaust> I just noticed the new config sections when going over current default configurations shipped with Alfresco

2017-01-06 10:35:29 GMT <AFaust> I haven't really encountered any use case where they would be relevant / sufficient since they have been introduced...

2017-01-06 14:20:56 GMT <yreg> hmm, sounds like someone is trying to bruteforce my password on freenode!

2017-01-06 14:56:16 GMT *** yreg is now known as younes

2017-01-06 15:00:18 GMT <IanW1> Anybody know if there's a way to have a compile time dependency on alfresco-share-services?

2017-01-06 15:00:29 GMT <IanW1> I think it's only available as an amp

2017-01-06 15:14:10 GMT <yreg> IanW1, according to this: https://artifacts.alfresco.com/nexus/#nexus-search;quick~ alfresco-share-services it seems to have a classes classifier for that purpose

2017-01-06 15:16:28 GMT <yreg> IanW1, https://artifacts.alfresco.com/nexus/service/local/repositories/releases/content/org/alfresco/alfresco-share-services/5.2.c/alfresco-share-services-5.2.c-classes.jar?describe=maven2&isLocal=true&_dc=1483715750207

2017-01-06 15:23:31 GMT <IanW1> yreg, thanks - learn something every day...
