2017-01-25 00:09:47 GMT <douglascrp> jpotts, ACL templates and the Alias Sets

2017-01-25 00:09:54 GMT <douglascrp> I miss those features too

2017-01-25 06:57:21 GMT <yreg> Morning

2017-01-25 07:42:19 GMT <yreg> ~later tell douglascrp I really appreciate it if you give this a try and provide some feedback : https://github.com/softwareloop/uploader-plus/pull/105

2017-01-25 07:42:19 GMT <alfbot> yreg: The operation succeeded.

2017-01-25 07:58:53 GMT <hi-ko> goog morning!

2017-01-25 07:59:42 GMT <hi-ko> could someone help me with gitgub/svn algebra? I miss the tag in github for 5.2.g (r 134428).

2017-01-25 08:00:28 GMT <yreg> hi-ko, if I remember right, the synchronization to github is on hold

2017-01-25 08:00:45 GMT <hi-ko> oups - bad news. why?

2017-01-25 08:01:00 GMT <yreg> and alfresco is working on making code available on their own gitlab server

2017-01-25 08:01:20 GMT <hi-ko> so we should rely on svn or is this just a temporary issue which is fixed very soon?

2017-01-25 08:02:48 GMT <hi-ko> is the motivation related to technical, licensing or marketing issues?

2017-01-25 08:03:04 GMT <yreg> hi-ko, I am not well informed, but I think there will be no more mirroring and alfresco's gitlab will have everything in future (not mirroring) for both enterprise and community

2017-01-25 08:04:25 GMT <hi-ko> yreg: thanks for the info. So we rely on good old svn and if somewhen alfresco comes up with a working gitlab thing we may switch ...

2017-01-25 08:04:52 GMT <yreg> hi-ko, alfresco do not want to manage their code differently for Enterprise and Community, and github enterprise subscription seems to be very high for a large scale company like alfresco, so they opted for an on-premise solution using gitlab

2017-01-25 08:05:08 GMT <yreg> hi-ko, exactly

2017-01-25 08:07:03 GMT <hi-ko> makes sense. nobody said cloud is cheap ;-)

2017-01-25 08:07:22 GMT <yreg> and someday alfresco's projects will start popping out here https://gitlab.alfresco.com/explore/projects

2017-01-25 08:07:23 GMT <alfbot> Title: Explore | GitLab (at gitlab.alfresco.com)

2017-01-25 08:07:59 GMT <yreg> hi-ko, don't take my word for a fact, most of what I said was a personal interpretation ;-)

2017-01-25 08:12:13 GMT <hi-ko> yreg: sure. fortunately this chat keeps everthing confidential ;-)

2017-01-25 10:08:24 GMT <apus> hi, the connection to my alfresco server from my ios app worked in the past. now - don't know after which update - it doesn't anymore. diagnostics says connection to repository failed, meaning authenatication, etc. went okay. any ideas what that could be?

2017-01-25 10:09:13 GMT <apus> or repository connection is tested, don't know how it is translated

2017-01-25 10:09:46 GMT <hi-ko> apus: did you enable sso?

2017-01-25 10:09:54 GMT <pjlucidi> could you please share with us the upgrade path?

2017-01-25 10:11:25 GMT <hi-ko> apus: If I remember correctly starting with 5.0.x you need a trusted ssl cert on https and you need to configure the tomcat connector to set the correct hostname / port

2017-01-25 10:12:03 GMT <apus> i was on 5.1.e iirc and then went to 2016-05GA what is that 5.1g?

2017-01-25 10:12:42 GMT <apus> what is sso?

2017-01-25 10:13:34 GMT <pjlucidi> sso stands for Single Sign On and it is a mechanism that allow you to avoid users to re-authenticate twice if you have an Identity Manager such as SiteMinder, CAS or CA

2017-01-25 10:13:57 GMT <angelborroy> hi-ko no SSL is required for 5.1g to use it from iOS app

2017-01-25 10:14:09 GMT <angelborroy> hi-ko currently testing a configuration with Alfresco in plain 8080

2017-01-25 10:14:23 GMT <apus> ah, honestly at the moment, no idea. it's been a few months since i set it up but didn't need to use ios app before. normal operation works fine.

2017-01-25 10:14:33 GMT <apus> i have the correct certificate authority cert installed

2017-01-25 10:14:40 GMT <apus> that was already part of my installation for 5.1e

2017-01-25 10:15:52 GMT <apus> server.xml connectors: https://dpaste.de/dXLy

2017-01-25 10:16:11 GMT <apus> normal browser access works without a problem

2017-01-25 10:16:31 GMT <hi-ko> angelborroy: sure - so I meant _if using ssl you need a public trusted cert. additionally when using apache or nginx you need to configre correct proxy parameters in server.xml

2017-01-25 10:16:49 GMT <angelborroy> hi-ko ah, ok, I misunderstood you

2017-01-25 10:16:55 GMT <apus> no external authenatication, no sso

2017-01-25 10:17:29 GMT <angelborroy> apus have you updated to last iOS app?

2017-01-25 10:18:02 GMT <angelborroy> apus you can also try defining the configuration file http://docs.alfresco.com/community/tasks/mobile-config-install.html

2017-01-25 10:18:03 GMT <alfbot> Title: Installing the configuration file | Alfresco Documentation (at docs.alfresco.com)

2017-01-25 10:18:14 GMT <pjlucidi> it seems ok to me the server.xml probably it could be something wrong in the configuration in your iOS app, check the context path

2017-01-25 10:19:07 GMT <apus> nginx conf: https://dpaste.de/wwmi

2017-01-25 10:19:17 GMT <apus> angelborroy: yes i have no outstanding updates for ios app

2017-01-25 10:19:53 GMT <angelborroy> apus and what about the JSON config in repo?

2017-01-25 10:19:59 GMT <apus> same for android app

2017-01-25 10:20:22 GMT <apus> JSON config in repo?

2017-01-25 10:20:48 GMT <angelborroy> again

2017-01-25 10:20:49 GMT <angelborroy> apus you can also try defining the configuration file http://docs.alfresco.com/community/tasks/mobile-config-install.html

2017-01-25 10:20:55 GMT <koula> hi all. i have created an action that changes a document. and now i would like to save it back as a new version of the document.

2017-01-25 10:21:04 GMT <koula> how do i do it in java?

2017-01-25 10:21:06 GMT <apus> sorry, didn't get to read it yet, was searching for the config files first

2017-01-25 10:21:17 GMT <angelborroy> koula just updating the content

2017-01-25 10:21:30 GMT <angelborroy> koula versioning is default behaviour

2017-01-25 10:22:09 GMT <apus> there is no folder Mobile in Data Dictionary

2017-01-25 10:22:19 GMT <angelborroy> apus you can create it by yourself

2017-01-25 10:22:32 GMT <pjlucidi> koula if you want to create a custom action you can follow this tutorial: http://ecmarchitect.com/alfresco-developer-series-tutorials/actions/tutorial/tutorial.html

2017-01-25 10:22:33 GMT <alfbot> Title: Creating Custom Actions in Alfresco | ECM Architect | Alfresco Developer Tutorials (at ecmarchitect.com)

2017-01-25 10:22:35 GMT <apus> so it is needed? why did it then work without it on 5.1e?

2017-01-25 10:22:57 GMT <pjlucidi> otherwise you could simply create a script using the Alfresco JavaScript API and then use the Execute Script action

2017-01-25 10:23:06 GMT <angelborroy> apus It is not required, just to give you some other tools

2017-01-25 10:23:18 GMT <angelborroy> apus to identify the problem

2017-01-25 10:26:44 GMT <koula> in the action i want to add a watermark to the document

2017-01-25 10:26:49 GMT <hi-ko> apus: which exact alfresco version are you using? there is some broken stuff with basic auth in the authentication filters

2017-01-25 10:27:09 GMT <apus> https://dpaste.de/KWo0 not working on app. dunno if i made a mistake there

2017-01-25 10:28:49 GMT <apus> versions here: https://dpaste.de/wycq hi-ko

2017-01-25 10:29:06 GMT <hi-ko> apus: so you don't reach tomcat directly and you use the ajp protocol from apache?

2017-01-25 10:29:16 GMT <apus> i have nginx installed

2017-01-25 10:29:32 GMT <apus> and use the configuration from the ubuntu loftux installer

2017-01-25 10:29:41 GMT <apus> installation system is freebsd

2017-01-25 10:30:35 GMT <hi-ko> so you're using nginx as upfront http listener?

2017-01-25 10:30:39 GMT <apus> yes

2017-01-25 10:30:45 GMT <apus> running on port 80 and 443

2017-01-25 10:30:55 GMT <apus> it forwards the requests depending on the path

2017-01-25 10:31:03 GMT <pjlucidi> koula please don’t reinvent the wheel :) take a look at this plugin https://addons.alfresco.com/addons/alfresco-pdf-toolkit

2017-01-25 10:31:04 GMT <alfbot> Title: Alfresco PDF Toolkit | Alfresco Add-ons - Alfresco Customizations (at addons.alfresco.com)

2017-01-25 10:31:53 GMT <apus> hm we have 201701GA out. but i don't have the time to migrate it at the moment

2017-01-25 10:32:03 GMT <apus> are my installed versions flawed?

2017-01-25 10:32:27 GMT <hi-ko> so you need to make sure that proxy host and port are part of the request and you need to define a separate http connector where you either translate proy host/port or set hardcoded by config

2017-01-25 10:32:30 GMT <apus> i pasted the tomcat server.xml config connector part and the nginx config somewhere above

2017-01-25 10:32:50 GMT <apus> it can connect

2017-01-25 10:33:36 GMT <apus> Server connection ok, Authentication with alfresco ok, connection to alfresco will be established ok, respository connection is tested Failed

2017-01-25 10:33:54 GMT <hi-ko> ok - found it. you connect to 8080 but the connector has no glue about server name

2017-01-25 10:34:41 GMT <pjlucidi> hi-ko it was the context path? :)

2017-01-25 10:35:43 GMT <apus> hi-ko: the connector 8443 knows the proxyname

2017-01-25 10:36:12 GMT <apus> and port 8080 and 8009 are redirected to 8443

2017-01-25 10:36:50 GMT <koula> pjlucidi toolkit says: FileInfo fileInfo = fileFolderService.create(destinationParent, filename, ContentModel.TYPE_CONTENT);

2017-01-25 10:37:20 GMT <koula> if i create with the same name, i get exeption

2017-01-25 10:37:36 GMT <hi-ko> apus: but 8443 is not used in nginx config

2017-01-25 10:38:40 GMT <apus> no, but isn't it enough that 8080 is redirected inside server.xml of tomcat to the connector 8443?

2017-01-25 10:39:23 GMT <apus> https://github.com/loftuxab/alfresco-ubuntu-install/blob/master/nginx/alfresco.conf.ssl

2017-01-25 10:39:24 GMT <alfbot> Title: alfresco-ubuntu-install/alfresco.conf.ssl at master · loftuxab/alfresco-ubuntu-install · GitHub (at github.com)

2017-01-25 10:39:25 GMT <hi-ko> you should define 2 independant connectors for nginx. one for http and the otherone for https. otherwise the CMIS response contains wrong data

2017-01-25 10:39:29 GMT <apus> only pointing to 8080 there as well

2017-01-25 10:40:12 GMT <apus> https://github.com/loftuxab/alfresco-ubuntu-install/blob/master/tomcat/server.xml

2017-01-25 10:41:27 GMT <hi-ko> apus: no - please read and understand mechanism behind redirectPort in tomcat doc

2017-01-25 10:42:19 GMT <apus> hi-ko: so both my configuration and that of loftuxab is wrong?

2017-01-25 10:42:44 GMT <apus> why did it work in the past?

2017-01-25 10:43:11 GMT <hi-ko> apus: you send http proxy headers from nginx but if you don't extract them on tomcat side this config has no effect

2017-01-25 10:44:06 GMT <apus> which connector options are we talking about? i'm not that familiar with tomcat, never really used it other than to set up alfresco

2017-01-25 10:44:34 GMT <hi-ko> apus: I'm not sure but I think from a distinct version of the iOS sdk alfresco started to send absolute URLs since some tools expect this

2017-01-25 10:45:42 GMT <hi-ko> if you make a tcp dump between nginx and tomcat you will see that servername and port are wrong inside http body

2017-01-25 10:46:15 GMT <hi-ko> apus: same issue with webdav/spp

2017-01-25 10:47:06 GMT <apus> okay, how to fix it? do you have a working connector configuration somewhere? is this part of a manual? it would take me hours to just figure out how it currently works, nevermind the time to learn all those options to fix it

2017-01-25 10:47:38 GMT <koula> angelborroy_ i am updated the document in an action executer, wth itext

2017-01-25 10:48:53 GMT <pjlucidi> koula you should share the exception with us

2017-01-25 10:52:11 GMT <hi-ko> yreg just rereading: "and [...] enterprise subscription [pricing] seems to be very high" --> could be a nice quiz on next executive discussion: please name the [...] lol

2017-01-25 10:53:27 GMT <apus> hi-ko: If this Connector is supporting non-SSL requests, and a request is received for which a matching <security-constraint> requires SSL transport, Catalina will automatically redirect the request to the port number specified here. Do i then need to specify proxyName and proxyPort or what am i missing? ssl data comes from nginx, goes to 8080, is redirected to 8443, where proxyname and proxyport should be correct. what am i missing?

2017-01-25 10:57:31 GMT <yreg> hi-ko, are talking about github enterprise subscription ?

2017-01-25 10:59:29 GMT <hi-ko> yreg: that's part of the quiz ;-)

2017-01-25 11:01:09 GMT <yreg> I imagine 40+ USD monthly subscription for few hundreds employees can be excessive, isn't it ?

2017-01-25 11:02:50 GMT <yreg> well 25$ **

2017-01-25 11:05:58 GMT <apus> hi-ko: could you please just tell me what is wrong and name the options that are wrong or that i need to configure? the tomcat manual redirectport didn't help me and i can't run tcpdump inside a freebsd jail without having to adjust parameters and rebooting it

2017-01-25 11:06:17 GMT <yreg> hi-ko, I can see that I got it all wrong, now that I went again through github enterprise website I can see 2500$ a year per 10 users

2017-01-25 11:06:35 GMT <yreg> any way, my assumptions may or may not be correct

2017-01-25 11:08:45 GMT <hi-ko> yreg: others have a subscription pricing ~20kUSD per 4/cpu cores. If you asume 50 users it's 33USD/user/month. also not cheap. don't take my statement too serious. alfresco should first take a close look in the mirror ...

2017-01-25 11:10:17 GMT <yreg> hehe good point

2017-01-25 11:17:22 GMT <hi-ko> apus: 2 things: don't use the same proxy port for http and https if you don't use the org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteIpValve on tomcat site to dynamically extract all 3 parameters. So either use separate connectors for http and https just for nginx and set proxyPort, proxyName and scheme in the connectors OR configure org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteIpValve and leave the parameters out...

2017-01-25 11:17:23 GMT <hi-ko> ...to be set dynamically by extracting the http headers

2017-01-25 11:17:55 GMT <apus> hi-ko: thank you, i'll take a look

2017-01-25 11:37:37 GMT * IanW1 is interested to discover how easy it is to break default (mail) subsystem actions - https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/browse/ALF-21838

2017-01-25 11:41:04 GMT <angelborroy> IanW1 I’m thinking about all the other proxies in Alfresco

2017-01-25 11:41:28 GMT <angelborroy> IanW1 they have also no bean name

2017-01-25 11:42:06 GMT <angelborroy> IanW1 Why don’t you extend default smpt bean to add your headers?

2017-01-25 11:57:36 GMT <IanW1> angelborroy: I need to pass parameters to set the header values, (and do other stuff)

2017-01-25 11:58:53 GMT <AFaust> IanW1: A colleague at the old company ran into the same issue years back

2017-01-25 12:00:12 GMT <IanW1> I suspect most people doing a custom mail action do it outside of the subsystem and therefore don't have the problem

2017-01-25 12:00:21 GMT <AFaust> angelborroy: There are maybe a handful of proxies that don't have an explicit sourceBeanName AFAIK

2017-01-25 12:02:22 GMT <IanW1> wonders how much would break if sourceBeanName in subsystemProxyFactory was mandatory...

2017-01-25 12:08:30 GMT <AFaust> IanW1: proxies to mail, mailService, userRegistrySynchronizer, fileServerConfiguration, transformerConfig, transformerSelector, transformeConfigMBean, sysAdminParams, replicationParams

2017-01-25 12:08:47 GMT <AFaust> Just a quick overview of proxies that don't have it set

2017-01-25 12:09:07 GMT <AFaust> Many extensions won't have a subsystem proxy defined themselves I believe

2017-01-25 12:11:22 GMT <IanW1> AFaust: I assume those could be easily fixed, I more meant in custom code - as per my earlier comment I doubt very widely used

2017-01-25 12:15:22 GMT <AFaust> That's what I meant with my last statement as well

2017-01-25 12:16:19 GMT <apus> hi-ko: could you please look over my server.xml one last time and see if i still got something wrong, because the app is still not working and gives error when trying to check repository connection https://paste.pound-python.org/show/QsY6HA5BYb6VBomUc3RQ/

2017-01-25 21:06:11 GMT <jpotts> Does anyone know if there is a good reason Coordinator was removed from Share Sites? (Or maybe it was never in there)

2017-01-25 21:06:40 GMT <jpotts> Seems odd that would be available in the "repository" but would not be available to Share sites

2017-01-25 21:07:38 GMT <jpotts> One of my clients wants a permission level that would allow deletion, which is exactly what Coordinator is

2017-01-25 21:07:56 GMT <jpotts> (Deletion of content they do not own)

2017-01-25 21:08:14 GMT <douglascrp> jpotts, I believe it was never there

2017-01-25 21:08:16 GMT <douglascrp> only for repository

2017-01-25 21:08:27 GMT <douglascrp> I can't remember a situation where I saw it for sites

2017-01-25 21:09:59 GMT <jpotts> So weird that someone thought, "Let's take that out for Share sites" or "Let's not make that available". What could have been the rationale?

2017-01-25 21:13:39 GMT <jpotts> Maybe someone thought it was confusing or that there were too many roles for Share Sites. Who knows. Guess we might have to add it.

2017-01-25 21:17:12 GMT <douglascrp> jpotts, a requirement I always have is the other way around

2017-01-25 21:17:32 GMT <douglascrp> users want to let users create content, but they want to avoid those users removing the documents

2017-01-25 21:17:37 GMT <douglascrp> only managers can do that

2017-01-25 21:17:58 GMT <douglascrp> how much "users" in that sentence :P

2017-01-25 21:18:06 GMT <douglascrp> how *many

2017-01-25 21:21:06 GMT <douglascrp> jpotts, so, if you are going to work on this, I would ask you to try to add this new role, like Creator Only

2017-01-25 21:21:16 GMT <douglascrp> a Collaborator without the delete permission

2017-01-25 21:22:24 GMT <jpotts> A Collaborator without the delete permission is really just a Collaborator with the owner set to someone else

2017-01-25 21:22:34 GMT <jpotts> You could do that right now with a script that changes the owner

2017-01-25 21:23:24 GMT <jpotts> Just write a script that always sets the owner to the site manager

2017-01-25 21:26:11 GMT <douglascrp> jpotts, yes, I do that

2017-01-25 21:26:16 GMT <douglascrp> that's the workaround I use

2017-01-25 21:26:25 GMT <douglascrp> but having a new role with that would be better

2017-01-25 21:35:22 GMT <AFaust> It'd be really cool if this "owner" thingy could be completely disable for a site. I rarely find it useful

2017-01-25 21:36:04 GMT <douglascrp> AFaust, about that, having the option to set a group as the owner of a node would be cool

2017-01-25 21:36:26 GMT <douglascrp> I mean, like a document that was created by someone, but the real owner is a group, like a department

2017-01-25 21:36:59 GMT <AFaust> jpotts: Problem with Coordinator (like SiteManager) is the "allow full access" bit. I seriously hate that about both roles. There needs to be a role that only has the actual create/update/delete/permissions privileges without the god-mode flag

2017-01-25 21:38:24 GMT <AFaust> douglascrp: Technically you could - it is just a dummy d:text property. The dynamic authority could be easily adapted - just the SOLR indexing stuff is a bit harder to adapt

2017-01-25 21:38:31 GMT <douglascrp> god-mod... LOL

2017-01-25 21:38:46 GMT <douglascrp> *god-mode

2017-01-25 22:14:48 GMT <yregaieg> ~later tell hi-ko it looks like slanglois was busy today creating new repositories under alfresco's github !

2017-01-25 22:14:48 GMT <alfbot> yregaieg: The operation succeeded.
