2017-01-19 10:16:35 GMT <maria_> in a custom form with a custom apsect, we set visible or hide fields. Is it possible to hide a field for a specific group of users?
2017-01-19 10:17:43 GMT <angelborroy> maria_ short answer: no
2017-01-19 10:18:20 GMT <angelborroy> maria_ Maybe you can provide a customised control to perform this operation
2017-01-19 10:26:57 GMT <maria_> to create my own ftl?
2017-01-19 10:27:32 GMT <maria_> in the ftl do i have access to user / user group?
2017-01-19 10:28:51 GMT <angelborroy> maria_ create your own FTL
2017-01-19 10:29:28 GMT <angelborroy> maria_ you have access to user, but you need to invoke REST services to identify groups and so

2017-01-19 11:04:30 GMT <Tichodroma> any idea how to patch contentModel.xml in a JAR module for 5.1? Don't ask why :(
2017-01-19 11:05:03 GMT <Tichodroma> putting the patched contentModel.xml to src/main/resources/model in the Maven JAR module has no effect

2017-01-19 13:07:48 GMT <twen> hello
2017-01-19 13:23:35 GMT <yreg> hi
2017-01-19 13:29:00 GMT <kgastaldo> Hey Community - We've just scheduled our first meetup for 2017. If anyone will be in London in early March, we'd love to see you. Details here - https://www.meetup.com/Alfresco-Meetups/events/236987848/?
2017-01-19 13:29:01 GMT <alfbot> Title: London Meetup - Alfresco Meetups (London, England) | Meetup (at www.meetup.com)
2017-01-19 13:31:01 GMT <angelborroy> I’d love to come
2017-01-19 13:31:11 GMT <angelborroy> I’ll do my best to assist
2017-01-19 13:31:23 GMT <angelborroy> kgastaldo any other places planned for this kind of event?
2017-01-19 13:32:58 GMT <kgastaldo> Hey Angel - Our plan is to host at least 4 meet ups in 2017 in Europe. We're making our city list now. We'd love suggestions!
2017-01-19 13:33:44 GMT <kgastaldo> We didn't want to plan too close to BeeCon, as we know people will be traveling for that. So I think our next one would be late May or June (after the March event).
2017-01-19 13:34:02 GMT <angelborroy> kgastaldo I was thinking about that
2017-01-19 13:34:18 GMT <angelborroy> Maybe Spain is not a good target for that, as we have a big event in April
2017-01-19 13:34:29 GMT <angelborroy> So I’ll probably attend London meetup
2017-01-19 13:38:17 GMT <kgastaldo> Would love to have you. I won't be there myself, but Francesco, Ole, and a good few of our developers will be there.
2017-01-19 13:39:12 GMT <kgastaldo> I think we'll probably skip Spain for a meet up - since BeeCon will be people there. We're doing research on where we have the most Alfresco downloads, to help determine possible audience.
2017-01-19 13:39:23 GMT <kgastaldo> bring* people
2017-01-19 13:39:31 GMT <angelborroy> agree, it’s the best approach
2017-01-19 13:39:58 GMT <kgastaldo> That being said, if anyone wants to host a meetup locally, let me know. I've got budget to help assist with logistics!
2017-01-19 13:41:28 GMT <kgastaldo> I've got a paid Meetup account going, and anyone wanting to host would be welcome to organize events there.
2017-01-19 13:48:25 GMT <kgastaldo> Speaking of events, we're all making plans for 2017 and I'd love to know what conferences you attend - https://community.alfresco.com/docs/DOC-6589-enter-announcement-title-here
2017-01-19 13:48:27 GMT <alfbot> Title: What conferences are you attending in 2017? | Alfresco Community (at community.alfresco.com)
2017-01-19 13:48:46 GMT <kgastaldo> Ugh, such a bad link. This template functionality in Jive just isn't right.
2017-01-19 13:57:38 GMT <yreg> kgastaldo, is this any better : https://community.alfresco.com/docs/DOC-6589-Some-nice-Fancy-title
2017-01-19 13:57:39 GMT <alfbot> Title: What conferences are you attending in 2017? | Alfresco Community (at community.alfresco.com)
2017-01-19 13:58:40 GMT <yreg> kgastaldo, FYI: only that part after "DOC-" and before the next "-" is really important the rest, you can play with it as it suits you ;)
2017-01-19 14:00:35 GMT <kgastaldo> Ha, thanks for the fancy title.
2017-01-19 14:00:45 GMT <kgastaldo> I don't like that it defaults to numbers, rather than your title.
2017-01-19 14:00:52 GMT <kgastaldo> Just seems like poor planning on their part.
2017-01-19 14:04:47 GMT <douglascrp> good afternoon everyone

2017-01-19 14:09:17 GMT <Loftux> Not the correct window, I'm not that narcistic…
2017-01-19 14:10:08 GMT <mrks_js> : ))
2017-01-19 15:26:08 GMT <iblanco> good afternoon
2017-01-19 18:53:28 GMT <eswbitto> Has anyone ran into issues with their Java Heap space running out of memory on 5.1? I have it at the default 4096M and for some reason yesterday ran out of space and alfresco became non-responsive.
2017-01-19 18:54:13 GMT <douglascrp> eswbitto, 4 GB is too small for Alfresco in my opinion, even for a simple server with low load
2017-01-19 18:54:39 GMT <douglascrp> I guess you have alfresco, share and solr in the same tomcat, right?
2017-01-19 18:56:07 GMT <eswbitto> douglascrp yes
2017-01-19 18:56:57 GMT <eswbitto> douglascrp do you think that I should put it to the same amount as the memory on the server or just bump it up a couple of gig?
2017-01-19 18:59:06 GMT <douglascrp> eswbitto, by "same amount as the memory on the server" you mean all the physical memory?
2017-01-19 18:59:18 GMT <eswbitto> douglascrp yes
2017-01-19 18:59:36 GMT <douglascrp> eswbitto, no, don't do that
2017-01-19 18:59:46 GMT <douglascrp> the OS and all the utilities need memory too
2017-01-19 19:00:00 GMT <douglascrp> if you give all to Java, the situation will become worse
2017-01-19 19:00:42 GMT <douglascrp> what you need is to add some more physical memory, and only after that increase the amount for Alfresco
2017-01-19 19:01:20 GMT <eswbitto> douglascrp I understand so right now I have 8192 MB allocated to this virtual server. Currently it is using 3950mb. When I had this issue come up yesterday the memory being used was about 5-6 GB
2017-01-19 19:01:49 GMT <douglascrp> that has nothing to do with the amount of memory used "by the server"
2017-01-19 19:02:02 GMT <douglascrp> you have to monitor how much memory java is using from what it has available
2017-01-19 19:02:48 GMT <eswbitto> I know, but I'm trying to get a sense of what I should increase what java uses compared to the physical memory available.
2017-01-19 19:03:54 GMT <eswbitto> douglascrp are you familiar with htop in linux?
2017-01-19 19:04:59 GMT <douglascrp> yes, I use it
2017-01-19 19:05:58 GMT <eswbitto> douglascrp so when I look at the java processes its using 43% (which I assume is based on the physical memory and not what is allocated for java to use)
2017-01-19 19:07:31 GMT <eswbitto> maybe I'm over complicating this
2017-01-19 19:10:34 GMT <eswbitto> douglascrp what do you use to monitor memory usage by java?
2017-01-19 19:11:09 GMT <douglascrp> you have to enable a monitor, like javamelody or something like that
2017-01-19 19:12:07 GMT <douglascrp> like this https://github.com/javamelody/alfresco-javamelody
2017-01-19 19:12:08 GMT <alfbot> Title: GitHub - javamelody/alfresco-javamelody: JavaMelody plugin for Alfresco (at github.com)
2017-01-19 19:13:18 GMT <eswbitto> douglascrp are you familiar with zabbix?
2017-01-19 19:15:13 GMT <douglascrp> eswbitto, no, I'm not
2017-01-19 19:16:17 GMT <douglascrp> this addon also allows you to monitor memory and other useful things https://github.com/OrderOfTheBee/ootbee-support-tools
2017-01-19 19:16:18 GMT <alfbot> Title: GitHub - OrderOfTheBee/ootbee-support-tools: OOTBee Support Tools addon to extend set of administrative tools on Repository- and Share-tier (at github.com)
2017-01-19 19:18:46 GMT <eswbitto> douglascrp thank you for the links. I will look into them, but I think I want to try a different approach rather putting an addon in alfresco. Zabbix is a network monitoring tool which we use heavily for outage notifications.
2017-01-19 19:19:20 GMT <douglascrp> I know it by name, but I haven't tried it
2017-01-19 19:19:20 GMT <eswbitto> I can create notifications based on ssh command line interaction.
2017-01-19 19:47:49 GMT <eswbitto> Is JMX only available for enterprise or can you use it on community?
2017-01-19 19:48:35 GMT <douglascrp> eswbitto, enterprise
2017-01-19 19:48:49 GMT <eswbitto> kk ty
2017-01-19 21:42:45 GMT <eswbitto> douglascrp I'm a little bit confused on something...So is there really several places that you have to set the -Xmx value for java in alfresco? Version 5.1 is a little different than the previous versions.
