2017-01-24 00:00:43 GMT <yreg> ~later tell fcorti damn, with each issue I solve, a couple other issues pop up -_-

2017-01-24 00:00:43 GMT <alfbot> yreg: The operation succeeded.

2017-01-24 00:52:33 GMT <yreg> ~later tell fcorti I couldn't get pentaho-server to connect too AAAR_DataMart, I keep getting Unable to factory object for jndi name AAAR_DataMart for reason javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: Name [AAAR_DataMart] is not bound in this Context. Unable to find [AAAR_DataMart].

2017-01-24 00:52:33 GMT <alfbot> yreg: Error: "AAAR_DataMart" is not a valid command.

2017-01-24 00:53:04 GMT <yreg> ~later tell fcorti I couldn't get pentaho-server to connect too AAAR_DataMart, I keep getting Unable to factory object for jndi name AAAR_DataMart for reason javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: Name AAAR_DataMart is not bound in this Context. Unable to find AAAR_DataMart.

2017-01-24 00:53:04 GMT <alfbot> yreg: The operation succeeded.

2017-01-24 00:53:30 GMT <douglascrp> hey yreg

2017-01-24 00:53:38 GMT <douglascrp> don't you sleep? :P

2017-01-24 00:55:54 GMT <yreg> ~later tell fcorti I tripple checked ~/.pentaho/simple-jndi/.. and it seems to have the right entries (same entries as in /opt/data-integration/simple-jndi/..)... I even trioed moving that folder around a couple of times without success

2017-01-24 00:55:54 GMT <alfbot> yreg: The operation succeeded.

2017-01-24 00:56:22 GMT <yreg> douglascrp, when I start working on something I sometimes get a bit addictive on it

2017-01-24 00:56:36 GMT <yreg> and can't move on until I get some tangible results

2017-01-24 00:56:55 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, I know the feeling

2017-01-24 00:56:58 GMT <douglascrp> I'm working here too :D

2017-01-24 00:58:03 GMT <yreg> ~later tell fcorti for the record, the extraction / publishing process works flawlessly when I invoke kettle from command-line... and I can verify the reports on the alfresco side

2017-01-24 00:58:03 GMT <alfbot> yreg: The operation succeeded.

2017-01-24 00:59:54 GMT <yreg> ~later tell fcorti I did not notice any thing wrong in the log during the install but I might have missed something

2017-01-24 00:59:54 GMT <alfbot> yreg: The operation succeeded.

2017-01-24 01:00:19 GMT <yreg> ~later tell fcorti will retry from scratch first thing in the morning !

2017-01-24 01:00:19 GMT <alfbot> yreg: The operation succeeded.

2017-01-24 01:19:19 GMT <yreg> ~later tell fcorti nevermind, solved it !

2017-01-24 01:19:19 GMT <alfbot> yreg: The operation succeeded.

2017-01-24 01:20:52 GMT <yreg> ~later tell fcorti, I was not aware that during the install process AAAR needed to invoke pentaho bi-server over http, and wouldn't expect it to get the url from the URL on my browser ...

2017-01-24 01:20:52 GMT <alfbot> yreg: The operation succeeded.

2017-01-24 01:22:27 GMT <yreg> ~later tell fcorti, the issue during the install was caused by AAAR trying to access some URL on the wrong port, since I was redirecting port 8080 from that container to port 9080 on my host

2017-01-24 01:22:27 GMT <alfbot> yreg: The operation succeeded.

2017-01-24 01:22:53 GMT <yreg> douglascrp, are you a fan of docker ?

2017-01-24 01:24:24 GMT <douglascrp> I only played with it to see what it is

2017-01-24 01:24:32 GMT <douglascrp> I have no practical experience with it though

2017-01-24 01:26:22 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, ^

2017-01-24 01:28:42 GMT <yreg> well, I strongly advise you get your hands on it

2017-01-24 01:29:02 GMT <yreg> it's a pretty powerfull tool as soon as you get familiar with

2017-01-24 01:29:09 GMT <yreg> huge productivity gaine

2017-01-24 01:29:12 GMT <douglascrp> yes, I know about it

2017-01-24 01:29:14 GMT <yreg> and automation

2017-01-24 01:29:22 GMT <douglascrp> how about alfresco running over it?

2017-01-24 01:29:31 GMT <douglascrp> did you get an usable setup already?

2017-01-24 01:30:22 GMT <yreg> I am now evaluating AAAR in a docker setup involving 5 containers ;-)

2017-01-24 01:31:12 GMT <douglascrp> wow, nice

2017-01-24 01:31:15 GMT <yreg> one for alfresco&share, one other for remoteJodConverter, postgresql containers

2017-01-24 01:31:19 GMT <douglascrp> AAAR in one of them, I guess

2017-01-24 01:31:23 GMT <douglascrp> ah, cool

2017-01-24 01:31:27 GMT <yreg> and last but not least a Pentaho container

2017-01-24 01:31:29 GMT <douglascrp> so, enterprise (based on jod)

2017-01-24 01:31:54 GMT <yreg> that should get split into two, one for data integration and the other for BI server

2017-01-24 01:32:15 GMT <yreg> actually that makes 6 containers not 5

2017-01-24 01:32:18 GMT <douglascrp> interesting

2017-01-24 01:32:40 GMT <douglascrp> I'm trying to follow all the new things, but it's almost impossible

2017-01-24 01:32:50 GMT <douglascrp> I'm in the middle of a relocation right now

2017-01-24 01:32:57 GMT <douglascrp> moving to another state

2017-01-24 01:33:03 GMT <yreg> douglascrp, Yes I am running Enterprise, but I am not using the enterprise feature for JODConverter

2017-01-24 01:33:11 GMT <douglascrp> so, you know, time is a bigger problem now

2017-01-24 01:33:57 GMT <yreg> I implemented an extra transformer and gave it higher priority over OOTB transformer to be able to handle office documents transformations on a seperate server

2017-01-24 01:34:25 GMT <yreg> + setup a loadbalancer in front of a farm of transformation servers in case of high load ;)

2017-01-24 01:34:43 GMT <douglascrp> that's cool

2017-01-24 01:34:54 GMT <douglascrp> one more container with nginx :D

2017-01-24 01:35:15 GMT <yreg> well, we usually use haproxy for this kind of things

2017-01-24 01:35:28 GMT <douglascrp> yes, anyway, one more container

2017-01-24 01:35:53 GMT <yreg> it has its perks, for example the ability to handle binary protocols out of the box

2017-01-24 01:36:00 GMT <yreg> yeah

2017-01-24 01:36:02 GMT <douglascrp> are you going to share something once you finish your tests?

2017-01-24 01:37:13 GMT <yreg> as soon I clean up this new setup I will be publishing this as an opensource project

2017-01-24 01:37:31 GMT <douglascrp> awesome

2017-01-24 01:38:03 GMT <yreg> as for the docker setup for alfresco, will need to check with my employer first, but I understand we are open to share our know how

2017-01-24 01:38:28 GMT <yreg> good night douglascrp, I really need to get some sleep

2017-01-24 01:40:08 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, good night dude

2017-01-24 01:40:11 GMT <douglascrp> I have to do the same

2017-01-24 01:40:13 GMT <douglascrp> it's late here

2017-01-24 01:41:55 GMT <yreg> almost 3am over here :P

2017-01-24 01:42:51 GMT <douglascrp> almost midnight here

2017-01-24 07:46:59 GMT <alfbot> fcorti: Sent 8 hours and 53 minutes ago: <yreg> an AAAR 4.5 docker container is on the way !

2017-01-24 07:47:00 GMT <alfbot> fcorti: Sent 7 hours and 46 minutes ago: <yreg> damn, with each issue I solve, a couple other issues pop up -_-

2017-01-24 08:01:03 GMT <fcorti> yreg: great job!

2017-01-24 08:46:39 GMT <yreg> AFaust, QQ, on which level behaviours are triggered ?

2017-01-24 08:47:00 GMT <yreg> are they triggered when I use lower case services ?

2017-01-24 08:47:20 GMT <AFaust> They are triggered in the service implementation

2017-01-24 08:47:29 GMT <AFaust> no difference which service variant you use

2017-01-24 09:05:07 GMT <twen> hello

2017-01-24 09:12:34 GMT <yreg> Hi twen

2017-01-24 09:12:51 GMT <bhagyas> Good morning all :)

2017-01-24 09:22:36 GMT <twen> jla yreg :)

2017-01-24 09:23:28 GMT <twen> yreg Looking for hotel in Brussels for Fosdem... Any suggestions may be ?

2017-01-24 09:41:40 GMT <yreg> twen, I do not think I am the best person to provide that kind of information, I technically live 20 km away and only been the a couple of times during the last 3 months :P

2017-01-24 09:42:46 GMT <yreg> I would recommend you check Booking.com, reviews and user experience can be helpful

2017-01-24 09:42:57 GMT <twen> yreg ok :D Thanks...

2017-01-24 09:43:11 GMT <twen> yreg I am doing it already ;)

2017-01-24 09:43:25 GMT <yreg> and then, if you contact the hotel directly (by telephone) you might get extra 10% on Booking.com prices

2017-01-24 09:43:44 GMT <yreg> as booking is charging these hotels 15% <grin>

2017-01-24 09:44:05 GMT <twen> yreg I am a genius member and get quite good rates.

2017-01-24 09:44:06 GMT <yreg> I have never attempted the manoeuvre

2017-01-24 09:44:37 GMT <twen> but if you ask for the price, they should be ok to get the same price, as the difference don't go to booking.com ;)

2017-01-24 09:44:45 GMT <yreg> but I got the same tip from multiple sources ;)

2017-01-24 10:01:31 GMT <Vasquez1> Hi guys I have a problem with downloading files from IE9-10-11 with extension .p7m from alfresco 5.0.x and 5.1.x but on 5.2.x it is downloaded correctly. The problem is that this file is not saved with extension .p7m but with .bin.

2017-01-24 10:02:23 GMT <angelborroy> Vasquez you can add the mimetype by yourself

2017-01-24 10:02:42 GMT <angelborroy> try this http://docs.alfresco.com/5.1/tasks/mimetype-add.html

2017-01-24 10:02:43 GMT <alfbot> Title: Adding a MIME type | Alfresco Documentation (at docs.alfresco.com)

2017-01-24 10:06:12 GMT <Vasquez1> great thanks

2017-01-24 10:43:02 GMT <douglascrp> morning guys

2017-01-24 10:43:28 GMT <douglascrp> can anybody give an idea about how to debug the freemarker processing with the mail action?

2017-01-24 10:44:10 GMT <douglascrp> the action works well when I use simple text as the "text", but with template, I get no email at all

2017-01-24 10:44:18 GMT <douglascrp> I got no error, no messages

2017-01-24 10:44:46 GMT <douglascrp> debuging the code, I see the model is being populated with the data used in the template, and the template itself seems to be ok

2017-01-24 10:48:54 GMT <AxelFaust> douglascrp: FreeMarker debugging can be quite intense - very low-level stuff

2017-01-24 10:49:18 GMT <AxelFaust> I assume you already tried to start in MailActionExecuter?

2017-01-24 10:49:24 GMT <douglascrp> AxelFaust, yes, I saw that when I enabled it

2017-01-24 10:50:01 GMT <douglascrp> AxelFaust, actually, no, I didn't

2017-01-24 10:50:20 GMT <douglascrp> as it was working, I was focusing in the template part, but yes, I should try it

2017-01-24 10:50:23 GMT <douglascrp> let me do it right now

2017-01-24 10:50:24 GMT <douglascrp> tks

2017-01-24 11:05:09 GMT <alex88bb> Hi guys. I have one problem which I can't solve. I would really appreciate your help. It is about Internet explorer 9, 10 and 11 browser.

2017-01-24 11:05:09 GMT <alex88bb> I have a simple yui datatable on the page with some actions defined for each row in that table. When I execute an action, the repo does the job correctly, but my table doesn't refresh at all. It sends the GET request again, but I get a HTTP response 304.

2017-01-24 11:06:00 GMT <alex88bb> Do you have any idea how to solve this in IE? It works perfectly on other browsers.

2017-01-24 11:27:31 GMT <douglascrp> AxelFaust, once more, you saved me

2017-01-24 11:27:33 GMT <douglascrp> the problem is here

2017-01-24 11:27:34 GMT <douglascrp> NodeRef parent = serviceRegistry.getNodeService().getPrimaryParent(ref).getParentRef();

2017-01-24 11:27:34 GMT <douglascrp> model.put("space", new TemplateNode(parent, serviceRegistry, null));

2017-01-24 11:27:45 GMT <douglascrp> as I was using the rootNode as the "node", there is no parent

2017-01-24 11:27:47 GMT <douglascrp> shame on me

2017-01-24 11:27:54 GMT <AxelFaust> lol

2017-01-24 11:27:59 GMT <douglascrp> AxelFaust, thank you so much

2017-01-24 11:28:11 GMT <douglascrp> so obvious, and I haven't tried

2017-01-24 11:28:16 GMT <douglascrp> ok, that's ok

2017-01-24 11:28:19 GMT <douglascrp> living and learning

2017-01-24 11:28:30 GMT <douglascrp> now I'm leaving to take my mac back (I hope this time it's ok)

2017-01-24 11:28:38 GMT <douglascrp> later guys

2017-01-24 13:06:45 GMT <yreg> ~later tell douglascrp still interested in that option for using the same metadata set for the whole batch of documents in uploader-plus ? I am working on that right now, and there will be a pull request for that by the end of the week ;-)

2017-01-24 13:06:45 GMT <alfbot> yreg: The operation succeeded.

2017-01-24 13:35:57 GMT <mbui> Anyone know if there's support to set multiple roles when inviting users to a site?

2017-01-24 13:37:19 GMT <yreg> mbui, does that even make sense ?

2017-01-24 13:37:35 GMT <yreg> assuming that you did not extend the OOTB set of roles of course ?

2017-01-24 13:38:33 GMT <yreg> AFAIK all OOTB roles are inclusive; meaning any more permessive role includes all less permissive ones

2017-01-24 14:32:42 GMT <sujaypillai> Any idea about the below error OR someone ever encountered it on 5.1.1

2017-01-24 14:32:43 GMT <sujaypillai> ERROR [org.alfresco.util.cache.AbstractAsynchronouslyRefreshedCache] [asynchronouslyRefreshedCacheThreadPool1] Cache update failed: AbstractAsynchronouslyRefreshedCache [cacheId=webScriptsRegistryCache]

2017-01-24 14:32:44 GMT <sujaypillai> java.lang.IllegalStateException: All entries for TransactionalCache must be put using TransactionalCache.putSharedCacheValue.

2017-01-24 14:35:31 GMT <iblanco> good afternoon

2017-01-24 14:54:24 GMT <AxelFaust> sujaypillai: I have not encountered that before

2017-01-24 14:56:13 GMT <AxelFaust> Problem is that the error may occur way after the actual cause, i.e. some code sets a value incorrectly and potentially after much time when the cache is read-accessed again it will fail

2017-01-24 15:08:48 GMT <sujaypillai> does setting caches.tx.statsEnabled=false help in any way?

2017-01-24 15:09:55 GMT <AxelFaust> I don't think so

2017-01-24 15:10:32 GMT <AxelFaust> That will just avoid some minor overhead

2017-01-24 15:17:39 GMT <resplin> ~seen kgastaldo

2017-01-24 15:17:39 GMT <alfbot> resplin: kgastaldo was last seen in #alfresco 5 days, 1 hour, 16 minutes, and 47 seconds ago: <kgastaldo> Just seems like poor planning on their part.

2017-01-24 15:28:17 GMT <fcorti> hi resplin, kgastaldo is available on skype if you need :-)

2017-01-24 15:28:50 GMT <resplin> Honestly, I was just double checking how to spell her name. <grin>

2017-01-24 15:29:01 GMT <resplin> I guess there are easier ways to do that, but I was already in IRC.

2017-01-24 15:29:20 GMT <fcorti> ah, ok... :-)

2017-01-24 15:29:20 GMT <resplin> two "a"s. I don't know why I find that hard to remember!

2017-01-24 15:29:37 GMT <fcorti> yes, it is not so easy to remeber

2017-01-24 15:30:51 GMT <AxelFaust> I think because when speaking the name you tend to slur pronounciation of the first "a" into an "e"

2017-01-24 15:31:39 GMT <AxelFaust> At least I believe that is something I do unconsciously

2017-01-24 15:31:47 GMT <angelborroy> that surname it’s easy for a Spanish one

2017-01-24 15:31:55 GMT <angelborroy> but it sounds like French for us

2017-01-24 15:32:09 GMT <angelborroy> however Kristen is harder for a Spanish one

2017-01-24 15:32:15 GMT <fcorti> Kristen surname is italian guys

2017-01-24 15:32:24 GMT <resplin> I didn't know that. Interesting.

2017-01-24 15:32:37 GMT <resplin> fcorti is the expert on Italian surnames!

2017-01-24 15:32:49 GMT <fcorti> fcorti is italian.... :-D

2017-01-24 15:35:15 GMT * iwkse is the other italian :-) if you want to have fun with surnames http://forebears.io/surnames

2017-01-24 15:35:17 GMT <alfbot> Title: Forebears - United States & Canada (at forebears.io)

2017-01-24 15:36:07 GMT <resplin> I didn't realize iwkse is also Italian.

2017-01-24 15:36:28 GMT <fcorti> really?

2017-01-24 15:36:31 GMT <iwkse> cool :D might mean my english is not too bad

2017-01-24 15:36:32 GMT <fcorti> where exactly

2017-01-24 15:36:44 GMT <iwkse> I'm from Lecce

2017-01-24 15:36:48 GMT <iwkse> ^_^

2017-01-24 15:36:58 GMT <fcorti> oh, I went there before joining Alfresco... ;-)

2017-01-24 15:37:06 GMT <iwkse> oh cool :)

2017-01-24 15:37:12 GMT <iwkse> and where are you from?

2017-01-24 15:37:14 GMT <fcorti> for work, I mean

2017-01-24 15:37:18 GMT <iwkse> ah nice

2017-01-24 15:37:26 GMT <fcorti> Firenze (Florence) I leave there

2017-01-24 15:37:38 GMT <iwkse> ahh..but Lecce is the Firenze of south :)

2017-01-24 15:38:01 GMT <iwkse> that's a common said

2017-01-24 15:38:05 GMT <iwkse> I'm sure you know it

2017-01-24 15:38:05 GMT <fcorti> COME ON... this is something people from always say but it has no reasons

2017-01-24 15:38:09 GMT <iwkse> ahah

2017-01-24 15:38:12 GMT <iwkse> yeah...

2017-01-24 15:38:12 GMT <fcorti> :-D

2017-01-24 15:38:16 GMT <iwkse> I agree

2017-01-24 15:38:19 GMT <iwkse> it's different style

2017-01-24 15:38:34 GMT <fcorti> completeley.. and I'm not saying Lecce is a bad place...

2017-01-24 15:38:38 GMT <fcorti> Lecce is amazing place

2017-01-24 15:38:49 GMT <iwkse> well yes is not that bad

2017-01-24 15:38:49 GMT <fcorti> All the salento is amazing

2017-01-24 15:38:52 GMT <iwkse> :)

2017-01-24 15:39:19 GMT <fcorti> unfortunately Italy is most famous for tourism and food, instead of technology :-P

2017-01-24 15:39:23 GMT <iwkse> I was in Florence as well some times ago (for fun) and I remember the sultriness killed me

2017-01-24 15:39:33 GMT <iwkse> but it was in August I think

2017-01-24 15:39:37 GMT <iwkse> yeah

2017-01-24 15:39:40 GMT <iwkse> unluckily

2017-01-24 15:39:50 GMT <iwkse> but there are a few exeptions :)

2017-01-24 15:40:15 GMT <fcorti> my friend... Florence in august is like Alaska in january

2017-01-24 15:40:20 GMT <iwkse> :D

2017-01-24 15:41:39 GMT <iwkse> it's nice you were here for work, where exectly?

2017-01-24 15:43:23 GMT <fcorti> I worked for Corvallis

2017-01-24 15:43:38 GMT <fcorti> In the ECM Business Unit ;-)

2017-01-24 15:46:17 GMT <iwkse> cool :) I've read about it but didn't know

2017-01-24 15:46:32 GMT <iwkse> well I'm sure it's much better now ;)

2017-01-24 15:49:54 GMT <fcorti> Ok, we will discuss in the next event

2017-01-24 15:50:19 GMT <fcorti> Let me know if you join a meetup (London in March) or the Beecon (in April)

2017-01-24 15:50:47 GMT <iwkse> ah sure..it will be cool to know you in real, I let you know

2017-01-24 15:50:55 GMT <fcorti> Other events will be planned in 2017 around the... world

2017-01-24 15:51:13 GMT <iwkse> Beecon will also be in London?

2017-01-24 15:51:17 GMT <fcorti> no no

2017-01-24 15:51:19 GMT <fcorti> Spain

2017-01-24 15:51:22 GMT <fcorti> Zaragoza

2017-01-24 15:51:25 GMT <iwkse> ah I see

2017-01-24 15:51:48 GMT <fcorti> It's very funny... lot's of nice people (me apart, of course)

2017-01-24 15:51:55 GMT <iwkse> :D

2017-01-24 15:54:11 GMT <iwkse> Firenze people are all fun :)

2017-01-24 16:00:33 GMT <fcorti> Fun is a hard concept when you work with people coming from all over the world... what is fun for one culture is not fun for everyone. ;-)

2017-01-24 16:06:09 GMT <iwkse> that's so true, this is probably a funny aspect of the whole thing :)

2017-01-24 16:08:17 GMT <fcorti> iwkse +1

2017-01-24 16:22:20 GMT <ioudas^work> I have added some log4j properties to log nfs mounts ( i cant get a basic nfs mount to work in windows but can in linux) where does the default nfs debug log reside?

2017-01-24 16:24:07 GMT <iblanco> I'm working on a DateTime control for Aikau: https://github.com/binovo/Aikau/tree/ALF-21826_DateTimeFormControl

2017-01-24 16:24:08 GMT <alfbot> Title: GitHub - binovo/Aikau at ALF-21826_DateTimeFormControl (at github.com)

2017-01-24 16:24:53 GMT <iblanco> I have developed the control itself, well at least a starting point

2017-01-24 16:25:29 GMT <iblanco> I want to work on the tests for it now, but I'm a newbie with this and I'm getting some trouble.

2017-01-24 16:25:54 GMT <iblanco> I have installed node 6.0.4 and grunt, and i have created the VM with grun vmcreate

2017-01-24 16:26:18 GMT <alfbot> douglascrp: Sent 3 hours and 19 minutes ago: <yreg> still interested in that option for using the same metadata set for the whole batch of documents in uploader-plus ? I am working on that right now, and there will be a pull request for that by the end of the week ;-)

2017-01-24 16:26:43 GMT <iblanco> but when i run "grunt test" the unit test's screen is shown but it doesn't progress

2017-01-24 16:27:59 GMT <iblanco> after some minutes It has thrown some error : chrome on any platform (Unknown)

2017-01-24 16:27:59 GMT <iblanco> - [POST http://192.168.56.4:4444/wd/hub/session / {"desiredCapabilities":{"browserName":"chrome","name":"src/test/resources/intern","idle-timeout":60}}] Connection refused (Connection refused)

2017-01-24 16:28:25 GMT <iblanco> and the same for firefox: firefox on any platform (Unknown)

2017-01-24 16:28:25 GMT <iblanco> - [POST http://192.168.56.4:4444/wd/hub/session / {"desiredCapabilities":{"browserName":"firefox","name":"src/test/resources/intern","idle-timeout":60}}] Unable to connect to host 127.0.0.1 on port 7055 after 45000 ms. Firefox console output:

2017-01-24 16:28:30 GMT <iblanco> Any clue?

2017-01-24 16:30:22 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, hey

2017-01-24 16:30:24 GMT <douglascrp> yes, of course

2017-01-24 16:30:33 GMT <douglascrp> that is one of the issues still opened

2017-01-24 16:38:42 GMT <iblanco> douglascrp, were you talking to me? Are you referring to this: https://github.com/Alfresco/Aikau/issues/1185

2017-01-24 16:38:43 GMT <alfbot> Title: 100% node.js CPU usage during grunt local_tests without any progress · Issue #1185 · Alfresco/Aikau · GitHub (at github.com)

2017-01-24 16:43:06 GMT <iwkse> iblanco: that doesn't sound related. It looks more like the service is not listening on that port

2017-01-24 16:43:53 GMT <iwkse> or some issues with port forwarding/firewall

2017-01-24 16:47:28 GMT <iblanco> Ok, I'll try to replicate the post with postman and see what it says

2017-01-24 16:51:17 GMT <douglascrp> iblanco, oh, no... it was for yreg

2017-01-24 16:51:28 GMT <douglascrp> the 2 following messages were also to him

2017-01-24 16:51:34 GMT <iblanco> thx.

2017-01-24 16:55:30 GMT <AxelFaust> iblanco: Well - at least you get that far with the unit tests. It never worked for me as you can see from that issue 1185

2017-01-24 16:56:13 GMT <ioudas^work> I have added some log4j properties to log nfs mounts ( i cant get a basic nfs mount to work in windows but can in linux) where does the default nfs debug log reside?

2017-01-24 16:56:20 GMT <AxelFaust> I have effectively given up since I can reproduce this issue on a completely new laptop, different OS and also all kinds of VMs I have created so far...

2017-01-24 16:56:43 GMT <iblanco> AxelFaust, but is there at least a way to execute isolated tests?

2017-01-24 16:56:50 GMT <AxelFaust> not for me

2017-01-24 16:57:07 GMT <AxelFaust> I mean, I can access the test pages manually and click to test

2017-01-24 16:57:44 GMT <AxelFaust> At some point in the past an isolated test worked for me, but haven't been able to achieve that again...

2017-01-24 16:58:00 GMT <AxelFaust> I blame the node.js crap

2017-01-24 16:58:25 GMT <iblanco> The problem is that without proper tests I don't think david will accept any pull request.

2017-01-24 17:00:14 GMT <AxelFaust> He has no other choice for my pull requests...

2017-01-24 17:01:16 GMT <AxelFaust> I mean if you also have issues with the test it does not hurt to go ahead and create an issue for those...

2017-01-24 17:01:48 GMT <AxelFaust> At some point there has to be some reconsideration if the test framework really is suitable / stable enough to be used for a project like this

2017-01-24 17:02:22 GMT <AxelFaust> And regarding the PR, at least he can review the code and will likely ask for some changes.

2017-01-24 17:02:47 GMT <AxelFaust> I.e. it is uncommon to use the _WidgetsInTemplateMixin in Aikau

2017-01-24 17:03:05 GMT <iwkse> AxelFaust: node.js is something new in aikau tests? I think last time I tried it wasn't there but I can be mistaken

2017-01-24 17:03:26 GMT <AxelFaust> and the widget could be implemented another way, i.e. you could create a standalone TimeInputField and combine the existing DateInputField with a new TimeInputField as a composite widget

2017-01-24 17:03:53 GMT <AxelFaust> No, the node.js setup has been there since the project moved to GitHub and I believe even before that...

2017-01-24 17:03:59 GMT <iblanco> What's the problem with _WidgetInTemplateMixin ? AFAIK is the standard way of doing compound widgets in Dojo.

2017-01-24 17:04:39 GMT <AxelFaust> I know - it just isn't used that way in Aikau anywhere, so there is a slight inconsistency there

2017-01-24 17:05:09 GMT <iblanco> I guess I could just create the elements programatically and place them in the attach points if this really is an issue.

2017-01-24 17:05:59 GMT <AxelFaust> I am just mentioning some of the review points that popped into my head when looking over your branch - don't know if Dave would see it the same way

2017-01-24 17:08:16 GMT <iblanco> Ok, thx. If Dave agrees with you I'll change it. I'm just curious to know why this is being avoided in Aikau (or maybe is just an style matter).

2017-01-24 17:08:17 GMT <AxelFaust> Anyway - a DateTime widget is filling an important gap. So far I have always managed to avoid the need for one...

2017-01-24 17:08:53 GMT <iblanco> I find it strange that Dojo itself doesn't alreayd hava a DateTimeTextBox

2017-01-24 17:14:12 GMT <iblanco> see you tomorrow. I'll let you know how it is going.

2017-01-24 17:20:06 GMT <eswbitto> Anyone know how to change the font size in the wiki for 5.1?

2017-01-24 17:54:36 GMT <douglascrp> AFaust, I've just fixed my problem with the email action

2017-01-24 17:54:39 GMT <douglascrp> tks for the tip

2017-01-24 17:55:28 GMT <eswbitto> Anyone know why the only way you can change the font size in the wiki is modifying it via viewing source? For non-tech peeps they just want a drop down they can select the font size for.

2017-01-24 17:58:01 GMT <iwkse> AFaust: ah thanks

2017-01-24 18:25:56 GMT <ioudas^work> Has anyone here actually managed to make a windows client mount an alfresco nfs server mount? I cant get the debug information or any windows nfs mount to properly work.

2017-01-24 18:29:42 GMT <eswbitto> ioudas^work are you referring to a mapped drive via webdav?

2017-01-24 18:29:51 GMT <ioudas^work> no nfs.

2017-01-24 18:34:39 GMT <eswbitto> ioudas^work are you just wanting a mapped drive to access sites?

2017-01-24 18:37:19 GMT <ioudas^work> im looking for a nfs client mount on windows specifically to nfs.

2017-01-24 18:37:24 GMT <ioudas^work> on alfresco

2017-01-24 20:13:52 GMT <douglascrp> ~later tell ioudas^work you should not rely on NFS, as it has been removed from Alfresco, as stated here https://community.alfresco.com/docs/DOC-6280-alfresco-community-edition-51

2017-01-24 20:13:52 GMT <alfbot> douglascrp: The operation succeeded.

2017-01-24 20:14:00 GMT <douglascrp> ~later tell ioudas you should not rely on NFS, as it has been removed from Alfresco, as stated here https://community.alfresco.com/docs/DOC-6280-alfresco-community-edition-51

2017-01-24 20:14:00 GMT <alfbot> douglascrp: The operation succeeded.

2017-01-24 20:20:36 GMT <jpotts> There are few things I miss about my old Documentum days, but one useful feature DCTM had that Alfresco is missing is ACL templates

2017-01-24 20:21:01 GMT <jpotts> I have a client who could use that feature and I may be able to get them to let me do it as an open source project

2017-01-24 20:21:29 GMT <jpotts> The idea is to allow ACLs to be described separately from nodes or code, like through JSON

2017-01-24 20:22:07 GMT <jpotts> In places where a specific authority is unknown at design time, the ACL Template could specify an Authority Template, which is just a bean that gets handed a node ref and returns the authority that should be used

2017-01-24 20:22:42 GMT <jpotts> Once you have a set of these defined, you can invoke the ACL Template Service and say, "Apply this ACL template to this node".

2017-01-24 20:23:01 GMT <jpotts> The advantage is that adjustments can be made without changing code.

2017-01-24 20:23:46 GMT <jpotts> I know this is fairly simple, but maybe others would find it useful?

2017-01-24 21:15:49 GMT <AFaust> jpotts: Hmm - I can't really imagine how that'd work without being tied to a particular structure. I mean - yeah - an ACL template on a single node might be useful, but then I rarely make more than two or three assignments

2017-01-24 21:16:22 GMT <AFaust> on a structure I'd find more useful, e.g. like a template for a site - but then it can't really be decoupled from the structure

2017-01-24 21:16:23 GMT <jpotts> I'm probably not explaining it clearly

2017-01-24 21:17:04 GMT <jpotts> Suppose you have a folder that has a certain ACL when it is in a certain state and a different ACL when it is in a different state

2017-01-24 21:17:15 GMT <jpotts> What those states are and why they change does not matter

2017-01-24 21:18:05 GMT <AFaust> That I can imagine

2017-01-24 21:18:14 GMT <jpotts> Rather than hardcode the fact that the first ACL looks one way and the second ACL looks another, I'm going to externalize the ACL into two different "ACL Templates" described as JSON

2017-01-24 21:18:26 GMT <jpotts> Maybe called ACL State 1 and ACL State 2, for example

2017-01-24 21:18:34 GMT <AFaust> But I rarely have use cases where it is just that single node / folder that is affected by a state change

2017-01-24 21:20:00 GMT <AFaust> which is mostly due to the restrictions/limitations that Alfresco has put unto permission models sometime before I started working with it. The underlying architecture shows there must have been more flexibility in the past (before an asteroid came and killed it)

2017-01-24 21:20:19 GMT <jpotts> The thing that gathers up the folders affected by a state change would no longer have to set the folder ACLs, it would know that this folder is in this state, therefore, make the ACL look like this

2017-01-24 21:21:18 GMT <jpotts> So if you have a workflow or an action or a folder rule, whatever, you don't have to repeat the knowledge of what an ACL should look like. Instead they all know to call the ACL Template Service and say, "Make the ACL look like it should using this template"

2017-01-24 21:21:45 GMT <jpotts> It's a Don't Repeat Yourself convenience, in other words

2017-01-24 21:25:23 GMT <AFaust> Though that only works when the ACL template is the sole source of the truth - might be too rigid, e.g. if you have an existing structure + templates and need to add some cross-cutting feature via aspect(s) from a 3rd-party extension

2017-01-24 21:30:27 GMT * AFaust is quite annoyed at the convoluted "authorized users" handling in Enterprise.

2017-01-24 21:31:22 GMT <AFaust> Make a simple change to the OS level character encoding and users with special characters can't login anymore. Try to workaround this Alfresco bug by minor DB action (remove authorised user) and internal validation will set system in read-only as it treats DB access as some kind of "jailbreaking" or whatever

2017-01-24 21:33:12 GMT <AFaust> Can find no UI / admin console tool to fix it "correctly" either...
