2017-02-20 07:39:21 GMT <twen> good morning

2017-02-20 07:57:13 GMT <Hiten> Hello All

2017-02-20 07:58:10 GMT <Hiten> I am recently facing an issue in which when I try to stop my alfresco community 5.1 instance through alfresco.sh stop command the script just return that there is no tomcat instance running

2017-02-20 07:58:33 GMT <Hiten> but when I run the command ps -ef | grep alfresco

2017-02-20 07:58:42 GMT <Hiten> I can see that a tomcat instance in running

2017-02-20 07:59:22 GMT <Hiten> I then checked the catalina.pid file under <ALFRESCO_HOME>/tomcat/temp

2017-02-20 07:59:53 GMT <Hiten> and the PID in that file contained a different PID then the one on which the alfresco is running

2017-02-20 08:00:54 GMT <Hiten> e.g. vi <ALFRESCO_HOME>/tomcat/temp/catalina.pid gives me 2804

2017-02-20 08:01:19 GMT <Hiten> but ps -ef | grep alfresco gives me 34215

2017-02-20 08:02:04 GMT <Hiten> also when I try to grep the process on the PID stored in catalina.pid I cannot find any instance running

2017-02-20 08:02:48 GMT <Hiten> Can anyone please share some thoughts as to why this might be happening

2017-02-20 08:15:15 GMT <yreg> Morning guys

2017-02-20 09:25:45 GMT <koula> iam trying to find an error on my custom share-header.get.js, so some logging would help

2017-02-20 09:26:19 GMT <koula> but logger.log('...'); messages are not printed in catalina.out, or alfresco.log

2017-02-20 09:26:21 GMT <koula> why?

2017-02-20 09:30:53 GMT <angelborroy> koula you need to configure your level log for Share log4j

2017-02-20 09:31:48 GMT <angelborroy> koula maybe this can help https://blyx.com/2014/02/18/alfresco-tip-logs/

2017-02-20 09:31:49 GMT <alfbot> Title: Alfresco Tip: got the control and customize your logs (alfresco.log, share.log and solr.log) – : : blyx.com : : Blog : : Toni de la Fuente : : (at blyx.com)

2017-02-20 09:35:54 GMT <angelborroy> koula look at this one https://community.alfresco.com/thread/182328-where-does-loggerlog-write-to#comment-692937

2017-02-20 09:53:51 GMT <koula> log4j.logger.org.springframework.extensions.webscripts.ScriptLogger=debug

2017-02-20 09:53:54 GMT <koula> log4j.logger.org.alfresco.repo.jscript.ScriptLogger=debug

2017-02-20 09:54:12 GMT <angelborroy> koula

2017-02-20 09:54:14 GMT <angelborroy> right in the share part

2017-02-20 09:54:55 GMT <koula> in javascript console if I just run logger.log("test"); it works.

2017-02-20 09:57:20 GMT <koula> why logger.log does not work in share-header.get.js ?

2017-02-20 09:58:45 GMT <AFaust> koula: JavaScript Console is exected on Repository-tier, share-header.get.js on Share-tier - they may have different Log4J configurations

2017-02-20 10:02:05 GMT <koula> ./tomcat/webapps/share/WEB-INF/classes/log4j.properties :log4j.logger.org.springframework.extensions.webscripts.ScriptLogger=debug

2017-02-20 10:03:46 GMT <AFaust> That is for Share only

2017-02-20 10:04:08 GMT <AFaust> Did you restart after making log settings changes?

2017-02-20 10:04:12 GMT <koula> yes.

2017-02-20 10:04:40 GMT <AFaust> Also, the setting log4j.logger.org.springframework.extensions.webscripts.ScriptLogger=debug is not used at all. Even for Share it is just log4j.logger.org.alfresco.repo.jscript.ScriptLogger=debug

2017-02-20 10:05:26 GMT <AFaust> (they simply copied the file from Repository, renamed it and kept the logger name for backwards compatibility)

2017-02-20 10:07:02 GMT <koula> ok. i changed it to ....repo.jscript.ScriptLogger and restarting.

2017-02-20 10:09:48 GMT <koula> nothing again..

2017-02-20 10:10:17 GMT <angelborroy> koula which log are you tailing? catalina.out, alfresco.log, share.log?

2017-02-20 10:11:04 GMT <koula> catalina.out

2017-02-20 10:11:37 GMT <angelborroy> koula is your code being executed?

2017-02-20 10:11:48 GMT <angelborroy> koula it seems that it is not

2017-02-20 10:12:05 GMT <angelborroy> where are you including that “logger” line?

2017-02-20 10:12:05 GMT <koula> yes.. if i make a type, i get an exeption

2017-02-20 10:12:10 GMT <koula> yes.. if i make a typo, i get an exeption

2017-02-20 10:12:26 GMT <koula> in its first line.

2017-02-20 10:12:36 GMT <angelborroy> koula so no more clues on my side

2017-02-20 10:12:48 GMT <angelborroy> koulad it should work, but I don’t know why is not working for you

2017-02-20 10:15:46 GMT <koula> ok. thanks. i think that i get more and more into alfresco, but then again i am returning to basics...

2017-02-20 10:15:49 GMT <koula> thanks anyway.

2017-02-20 10:17:23 GMT <angelborroy> koula why don’t you try OOTB Support tools

2017-02-20 10:17:23 GMT <angelborroy> https://github.com/OrderOfTheBee/ootbee-support-tools

2017-02-20 10:17:24 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)

2017-02-20 10:17:39 GMT <angelborroy> so you can set your logger levels without restarting Alfresco

2017-02-20 10:19:22 GMT <IanW1> angelborroy: Have you tested your code to log in with ldap email address instead of alfresco id with the mobile apps?

2017-02-20 10:19:39 GMT <angelborroy> IanW1 not really

2017-02-20 10:20:15 GMT <angelborroy> I’m trying

2017-02-20 10:20:46 GMT * AFaust is reminded he wanted to add "alternative user resolution" to his MT LDAP module

2017-02-20 10:21:25 GMT <IanW1> angelborroy: oh well... - l see calls to /alfresco/api/-default-/public/alfresco/versions/1/people/email@example.com/.... when looking for sites in the mobile app (which doesn't work with my code at the moment)

2017-02-20 10:22:54 GMT <angelborroy> IanW1 it looks like is working fine for me

2017-02-20 10:22:55 GMT <AFaust> I would assume this is an issue with the mobile app - it uses the user name entered in the app instead of checking the one for the logged in user...

2017-02-20 10:23:07 GMT <IanW1> AFaust: it's not too hard to do but you have to be aware of phantom users when using IMAP

2017-02-20 10:24:14 GMT <AFaust> ^^ "phantom users" - do you mean users eagerly created by Alfresco because it uses the user name provided by the IMAP client instead of the resolved one?

2017-02-20 10:24:36 GMT <IanW1> My colleague using the iOS app can't see any sites but can use other parts of the app

2017-02-20 10:25:20 GMT <angelborroy> IanW1 I’m using iOS app (btw)

2017-02-20 10:26:54 GMT <IanW1> AFaust: That's right - I get an extra user with username=email address unless I set create.missing.people=false in the properties

2017-02-20 10:28:34 GMT * AFaust sighs... Sure Alfresco, trust everything the client provides...

2017-02-20 10:29:48 GMT <AFaust> Well - luckily IMAP is something to be rewritten for MT support sometime in the future as well...

2017-02-20 10:37:38 GMT <IanW1> angelborroy: Looks like you've probably done a better job than me then... - the mobile account id is included as part of the api call URL (and also in params) - yuck...

2017-02-20 10:38:13 GMT <angelborroy> IanW1 wow, then maybe I’m not testing it properly

2017-02-20 10:38:32 GMT <angelborroy> IanW1 because it would fail also in my env

2017-02-20 10:39:05 GMT <angelborroy> IanW1 let me check again

2017-02-20 10:45:56 GMT <angelborroy> IanW1 yep, crashing also in prod env

2017-02-20 10:50:34 GMT <IanW1> angelborroy: Some parts work OK - but looks like sites (favorites), tasks need that id

2017-02-20 10:50:42 GMT <IanW1> angelborroy: Thanks for checking...

2017-02-20 10:50:49 GMT <angelborroy> you’re welcome

2017-02-20 10:50:54 GMT <angelborroy> interesting also for me

2017-02-20 10:51:02 GMT <angelborroy> they are not using mobile apps by now

2017-02-20 10:51:14 GMT <angelborroy> but it’s good to know this info for the future

2017-02-20 10:51:58 GMT <IanW1> We're not really using them either but wanted to check before promoting them a bit more

2017-02-20 10:52:56 GMT <angelborroy> -= THIS MESSAGE NOT LOGGED =-

2017-02-20 10:54:49 GMT <AFaust> If it is only related to the user ID, I believe it may be possible to work around the person/sites/task/favourite issues via AOP...

2017-02-20 10:57:25 GMT <IanW1> AFaust: Thanks - probably not important enough to spend time on at the moment but nice idea

2017-02-20 11:11:31 GMT <alfbot> douglascrp: Sent 9 hours and 21 minutes ago: <digcat> hope this finds you well, just wondered if you had seen this https://github.com/rmberg/alfresco-s3-adapter

2017-02-20 11:11:40 GMT <IanW1> I've created a jira - https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/browse/MOBILE-3401

2017-02-20 11:11:49 GMT <douglascrp> good morning guys

2017-02-20 11:12:16 GMT <douglascrp> ~later tell digcat no, that one is new to me... I am going to check it out... tks for letting me know about it

2017-02-20 11:12:16 GMT <alfbot> douglascrp: The operation succeeded.

2017-02-20 11:15:36 GMT <douglascrp> ~later tell digcat it seems he has been working on that since june 2015

2017-02-20 11:15:36 GMT <alfbot> douglascrp: The operation succeeded.

2017-02-20 11:16:00 GMT <angelborroy> https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/browse/ALF-21833

2017-02-20 11:16:33 GMT <angelborroy> The path is solved for Enterprise, but it’s not clear if it is going to be incorporated to Enterprise

2017-02-20 11:17:05 GMT <angelborroy> sorry > to Community

2017-02-20 11:17:21 GMT <angelborroy> fcorti which is your criteria in such a case?

2017-02-20 11:27:18 GMT <fcorti> HI angelborroy, we have to check if it will be automatically included into the CE. It is possible. resplin is the right person to ask.

2017-02-20 11:29:36 GMT <angelborroy> fcorti thanks

2017-02-20 11:29:46 GMT <fcorti> you are welcome

2017-02-20 11:36:45 GMT <angelborroy> ~later tell resplin : https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/browse/ALF-21833 what about Community resolution? It’s marked as “Fix Version/s: None”

2017-02-20 11:36:45 GMT <alfbot> angelborroy: The operation succeeded.

2017-02-20 12:17:37 GMT <yreg> Guys, What is the SyncPropertyInterceptor supposed to do in Alfresco EE ?

2017-02-20 12:25:42 GMT <yreg> Forget that, that's not the problem

2017-02-20 12:27:23 GMT <AFaust> yreg: even though that is not the problem, it is related to cloud sync

2017-02-20 12:30:48 GMT <AFaust> And it is annoying because it is hard-coded to be enabled (even if you don't use cloud sync) and adds unecessary overhead to getProperties, setProperties, addProperties and getAspects operations, and may also cause policies to trigger twice for a single addProperties/setProperties call

2017-02-20 12:30:50 GMT <yreg> Yes I figured so !

2017-02-20 12:31:15 GMT <yreg> annoying indeed

2017-02-20 14:51:40 GMT <alfbot> digcat: Sent 3 hours and 39 minutes ago: <douglascrp> no, that one is new to me... I am going to check it out... tks for letting me know about it

2017-02-20 14:51:41 GMT <alfbot> digcat: Sent 3 hours and 36 minutes ago: <douglascrp> it seems he has been working on that since june 2015

2017-02-20 15:04:05 GMT <yreg> digcat, Mattermost is down

2017-02-20 15:07:21 GMT <douglascrp> digcat, yes, that's what I saw

2017-02-20 15:07:39 GMT <douglascrp> I don't know if you noticed the issue I raised, but I invited him to work together in a single project

2017-02-20 15:07:51 GMT <douglascrp> digcat, ^

2017-02-20 15:16:16 GMT <AFaust> fcorti: qq - is ___Dave still alive and working at Alfresco? Even since he no longer worked full time on Aikau he at least was active with responding to issues / PRs, or fixed minor bugs here+there, but on the weekend I noticed that there has been no activity at all since around January 12th...

2017-02-20 15:19:47 GMT <yreg> AFaust, this https://github.com/draperd?tab=overview&from=2017-02-01&to=2017-02-20 seems to suggest so

2017-02-20 15:19:49 GMT <alfbot> Title: draperd (Dave Draper) · GitHub (at github.com)

2017-02-20 15:21:43 GMT <AFaust> That only shows his personal repository activities...

2017-02-20 15:22:54 GMT <yreg> Yes and it looks like he is working on PoC React client for Alfresco https://github.com/draperd/React-Client-1/commits/master

2017-02-20 15:22:55 GMT <alfbot> Title: Commits · draperd/React-Client-1 · GitHub (at github.com)

2017-02-20 15:23:29 GMT <yreg> along with Kevin Roast

2017-02-20 15:25:15 GMT <bhagyas> Can't wait till David joins the dark side (React) ;)

2017-02-20 15:30:10 GMT <AFaust> fcorti: If these PoC projects are sanctioned, is there anyone else that will take care of Aikau? (I obiously already know the answer, but hey - at least I still have hope you will surprise me with your answer...)

2017-02-20 15:31:13 GMT <bhagyas> AFaust: You are the only one who is left now ;p

2017-02-20 15:36:18 GMT <bhagyas> Just checked out the GitHub React-Client-1 Project

2017-02-20 15:36:34 GMT <bhagyas> looks more feature complete than Aikau Doclib ;p

2017-02-20 15:49:28 GMT <fcorti> AFaust sorry, was in a call

2017-02-20 15:49:50 GMT <fcorti> don't know __Dave schedule and backlog

2017-02-20 15:50:16 GMT <fcorti> I think your questions has a double point of view:

2017-02-20 15:50:23 GMT <fcorti> Where Dave is?

2017-02-20 15:50:34 GMT <fcorti> How things are going with Share/Aikau?

2017-02-20 15:51:03 GMT <fcorti> About Dave, as you can see he is active... not necessarily around Share

2017-02-20 15:51:29 GMT <fcorti> About Aikau, it depends on the backlog

2017-02-20 15:52:45 GMT <fcorti> This is the latest post on React on

2017-02-20 15:52:50 GMT <alfbot> Title: Testing APIs Using React Components | Alfresco Community (at community.alfresco.com)

2017-02-20 15:55:01 GMT <AFaust> I think my questions have more than just a double point of view...

2017-02-20 15:55:33 GMT <fcorti> Ok, I saw only two of them

2017-02-20 15:55:51 GMT <AFaust> "About Aikau, it depends on the backlog" - That apparently means: "We'll do something with it when we feel the need for it, but not more than that."

2017-02-20 15:56:53 GMT <AFaust> fcorti: Sure, there were only two questions... I was referring to points of view one could infer from my questions (and previously expressed opinions)

2017-02-20 15:57:43 GMT <fcorti> The answer to the precise question is: the tasks depends on the Product Manager and roadmap.

2017-02-20 15:58:42 GMT <fcorti> The answer about the others questions about plans, roadmap and what you call = That apparently means: "We'll do something with it when we feel the need for it, but not more than that."

2017-02-20 15:59:02 GMT <fcorti> Will come in the next events and announcments...

2017-02-20 15:59:03 GMT <fcorti> I mean

2017-02-20 15:59:31 GMT <fcorti> we plan to have Tomas De Meo in a Office Hour in march talking about the Alfresco roadmap

2017-02-20 15:59:56 GMT <fcorti> the next week there will be the release of the Alfresco One 5.2 GA release

2017-02-20 16:00:29 GMT <fcorti> now I cannot talk about the roadmp in place of Thomas and other executives :-)

2017-02-20 16:00:35 GMT <fcorti> I'm not so important... :-)

2017-02-20 16:00:47 GMT <fcorti> So, I have to say: let's wait a little bit more.

2017-02-20 16:01:13 GMT <fcorti> I hope I replied (in the way I can) to your request of "more information" about the roadmap

2017-02-20 16:01:14 GMT <AFaust> I don't care when it will be officially killed as long as Alfresco will finally get it over with...

2017-02-20 16:01:31 GMT <AFaust> Ok then, let's see in March

2017-02-20 16:01:32 GMT <fcorti> I don't think it will be killed

2017-02-20 16:01:42 GMT <AFaust> Until then, I'll fix stuff locally for myself

2017-02-20 16:02:11 GMT <AFaust> Ok - then it will remain on permanent life support, but be brain dead...

2017-02-20 16:02:39 GMT * AFaust mumbles something about "positive thoughts, positive thoughts"

2017-02-20 16:03:13 GMT <fcorti> +1 to positive thoughts!

2017-02-20 16:05:49 GMT <AFaust> fcorti: On the other hand - why have Thomas on in an Office Hours in March when BeeCon is in April?

2017-02-20 16:06:43 GMT <fcorti> because we think it's a value to talk about roadmap and news asap

2017-02-20 16:07:01 GMT <fcorti> for sure: not because because there is a "hidden" reason

2017-02-20 16:07:20 GMT <fcorti> March it the soonest date for the new roadmap, product vision, etc.

2017-02-20 16:07:31 GMT <fcorti> and we wanted all to be informed

2017-02-20 16:07:34 GMT <AFaust> No - I was just referring to the timing of it and wondering what his session at BeeCon would be about then, when all the beans have already been spilled

2017-02-20 16:08:16 GMT <fcorti> they are two different formats (the first one hour of discussion and the second a presentation)

2017-02-20 16:08:34 GMT <fcorti> some of the concept will be probably an overlap

2017-02-20 18:29:00 GMT <robl^> I just started poking round in the new REST API. Very nice work.

2017-02-20 18:33:26 GMT <robl^> my project this week is to start building a language / library binding the Alfresaco REST API for the Xojo programming language to be used in a couple of applications

2017-02-20 18:34:10 GMT <grendal_prime> hey guys i got a situation were i have an alfresco server that is working 501d i believe, but the tags and categories do not show any tagged or categorised documents. (this is pretty essential to using the alfresco system in the first place for us.) I have an idea that it has something to do with the data being stored on an nfs share on our filer.

2017-02-20 18:34:33 GMT <grendal_prime> it seems the indexing does not like to be on another file system.

2017-02-20 18:35:57 GMT <grendal_prime> this system only has about 15 users so its not huge

2017-02-20 19:16:18 GMT <douglascrp> grendal_prime, yes, indexing should be local

2017-02-20 19:16:30 GMT <douglascrp> it's recommended to have it set in a fast disc

2017-02-20 19:21:55 GMT <grendal_prime> ok where do i adjust that ..because right now its not working at all and also how much space does that typically take up...roughly

2017-02-20 19:22:08 GMT <grendal_prime> and how do i rebuild the indexes

2017-02-20 19:24:39 GMT <douglascrp> grendal_prime, how much space it will take depends on the type of content you have... more text, more index space

2017-02-20 19:25:05 GMT <douglascrp> there is no exact number, but you can thing about 10% to 30% of your contentstore size

2017-02-20 19:25:22 GMT <grendal_prime> wow

2017-02-20 19:25:38 GMT <douglascrp> where to set it, using the solr config files.

2017-02-20 19:26:15 GMT <douglascrp> that's all you need

2017-02-20 19:26:28 GMT <grendal_prime> It seems as though i had this working at some point..but then it stoped working. is that typical?

2017-02-20 19:27:02 GMT <douglascrp> sometimes you have to force the reindex

2017-02-20 20:49:25 GMT <AFaust> bmejias: I don't remember you telling us that they actually built a beer pipeline in Brugges...

2017-02-20 20:49:31 GMT <AFaust> ^^ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGUcAg4W2hw&list=TLGG1zJhgj_DYtYyMDAyMjAxNw

2017-02-20 20:50:24 GMT <AFaust> But they at least mention the crowdfunding and "beer-for-life" reward that I remember.

2017-02-20 20:55:05 GMT <grendal_prime> sorry house was getting ready to wash away...weather here is crazy

2017-02-20 20:56:03 GMT <bmejias> AFaust nice video. That's actually the brewery we visited when we went to Brugge...

2017-02-20 20:56:11 GMT <bmejias> so, it wasn't "just a pub" :D

2017-02-20 20:56:13 GMT <AFaust> I know - I recognized it

2017-02-20 20:56:33 GMT <AFaust> I mean I recognized the entry way we passed

2017-02-20 20:57:34 GMT <bmejias> nice... in case you try to find the beer on the market, it's called: Brugse zot

2017-02-20 20:57:46 GMT <bmejias> blond and brown.

2017-02-20 20:58:05 GMT <bmejias> I don't know if they have other beers, but at least, that's the most famous one they have.

2017-02-20 20:59:00 GMT <bmejias> I have to leave now.... thanks again for the video AFaust... cheers
