Daily Log for #alfresco

2017-02-24 07:54:06 GMT <Dirk23> morning guys

2017-02-24 07:56:55 GMT <Dirk23> i'm trying to "mount" Alfresco WebDav to Windows, but i am not able to connect. Windows asks me for Credentials (alfresco is connected to same LDAP like my PC) and i type in my credentials, but it wont connect to WebDav

2017-02-24 08:32:57 GMT <mrks_js> Dirk23: there are many threads about this in the forum/community. windows 7 for example does not allow mounting unsecured webfolders/remote filesystems out of the box.

2017-02-24 08:33:18 GMT <Dirk23> i have win10 and its https with trusted cert

2017-02-24 08:33:54 GMT <yreg> Morning

2017-02-24 08:33:56 GMT <mrks_js> is the alf host in your sites?

2017-02-24 08:34:37 GMT <mrks_js> and can you connect with your user by accessing host/alfresco/webdav with your browser?

2017-02-24 08:34:45 GMT <mrks_js> gotta restart real quick

2017-02-24 08:34:55 GMT <mrks_js> windows .. :)

2017-02-24 08:40:22 GMT <Dirk23> "mrks_js> is the alf host in your sites?" I dont know what that means! I can browse host/alfresco/webdav and login with my credentials

2017-02-24 08:40:32 GMT <Dirk23> in browser

2017-02-24 08:53:47 GMT <angelborroy> morning

2017-02-24 08:54:09 GMT <angelborroy> anyone can try if Assignee can be searched for Alfresco 201702?

2017-02-24 08:54:48 GMT <angelborroy> I’m trying with ootb tasks (Review and Approve, New Task…) and when using “Select” button no users is available

2017-02-24 08:57:35 GMT <angelborroy> in fact, it only shows disabled users

2017-02-24 08:59:10 GMT <angelborroy> going ahead… it’s the people search which is failing

2017-02-24 08:59:16 GMT <angelborroy> let me re-index to be sure

2017-02-24 08:59:49 GMT <Dirk23> mrks_js, i have a trusted certificate

2017-02-24 09:04:16 GMT <angelborroy> na, solr6 indexes rebuild and all is working again

2017-02-24 09:49:02 GMT <yreg> Guys, does any of you know if it is possible to paginate by more than 1000 elements when querying Solr ?

2017-02-24 10:15:03 GMT <yreg> Guys, does it make sense if I include in an integration an project some cache tuning config ?

2017-02-24 10:16:17 GMT <yreg> I mean, that way, that config would go under the module, and still can be overridden by shared/classes/alfresco-global.properties

2017-02-24 10:30:17 GMT <qwebirc57546> Hi

2017-02-24 10:31:37 GMT <qwebirc57546> what is the best way to customise the error page in share 5.1 ?

2017-02-24 10:31:48 GMT <qwebirc57546> I can see that there is an aikau service

2017-02-24 10:31:53 GMT <qwebirc57546> UrlUnavailableService

2017-02-24 10:32:03 GMT <qwebirc57546> is this what we need to customise ?

2017-02-24 10:45:44 GMT <yreg> qwebirc57546, try error500.jsp

2017-02-24 10:46:26 GMT <yreg> if you are looking for a way to customize the generic share 500 error page

2017-02-24 10:47:54 GMT <yreg> if you are looking for a way to provide a specific error page for a specific webscript, then you could add a special view template for that under this naming convention : some-webscript.method.satus.ftl

2017-02-24 11:00:32 GMT <qwebirc57546> yreg, thanks for your help

2017-02-24 11:00:42 GMT <qwebirc57546> I do not want to touch error500.jsp

2017-02-24 11:01:06 GMT <sujaypillai> Does anyone know of an addon/module that may help in send alerts when the storage for alfresco gets full?

2017-02-24 11:01:15 GMT <qwebirc57546> and I do not need an error page only for the webscripts

2017-02-24 11:01:57 GMT <qwebirc57546> what error page to use, I think it is also customizable in share-config-custom.xml

2017-02-24 11:02:22 GMT <qwebirc57546> but I am wondering for what cases the aikau UrlUnavailableService is used

2017-02-24 11:02:45 GMT <qwebirc57546> probably trying to access a dynamic page that is defined

2017-02-24 11:02:51 GMT <qwebirc57546> I haven't checked yet

2017-02-24 11:10:58 GMT <yreg> sujaypillai, I do not know of such an addon if it does exist but I am pretty sure that it should be easy to set such a logic in a bash script and have it send email when/if the disk space usage exceeds a predefined ratio

2017-02-24 11:11:22 GMT <yreg> and of course set a cron with a frequency of your chosing

2017-02-24 11:12:35 GMT <sujaypillai> yup that’s a good alternative solution

2017-02-24 11:37:53 GMT <fcorti> Just to be ware that today at 4pm (CET) there is the Office Hour with Alfresco University talking about courses and stuff around education. We'll also discuss certification - the reasons to get certified and how to prepare.

2017-02-24 12:52:49 GMT <bhagyas> :D

2017-02-24 12:53:03 GMT <angelborroy> Por qué hacer tal cosa?

2017-02-24 12:54:08 GMT <angelborroy> bhagyas let me know if you need some “translations advices” ;-)

2017-02-24 13:01:26 GMT <Dirk23> angelborroy, i like to scan from our scanner to alfresco. But our scanner only supports ftp and smb. Does alfresco support ftp or smb?

2017-02-24 13:01:42 GMT <angelborroy> Dirk23 ftp in your case

2017-02-24 13:01:44 GMT <angelborroy> it should work

2017-02-24 13:02:12 GMT <Dirk23> there is aftp in alfresco?

2017-02-24 13:02:24 GMT <angelborroy> yep, look the docs

2017-02-24 13:02:26 GMT <angelborroy> it’s easy

2017-02-24 13:04:50 GMT <Dirk23> ^^ for you ;)

2017-02-24 13:05:11 GMT <angelborroy> just include ftp.server=true in alfresco.global

2017-02-24 13:05:19 GMT <angelborroy> ftp.port=21 if you are using root

2017-02-24 13:05:29 GMT <angelborroy> ftp.port=2121 if you are not using root

2017-02-24 13:05:35 GMT <angelborroy> and a redirection for port 21 to 2121

2017-02-24 13:05:37 GMT <angelborroy> and it’s done

2017-02-24 13:05:46 GMT <Dirk23> nice

2017-02-24 13:06:55 GMT <Dirk23> hmmm... using root? How do i know if i am using root?

2017-02-24 13:07:15 GMT <Dirk23> ups

2017-02-24 13:07:44 GMT <angelborroy> ps -ef | grep java

2017-02-24 13:07:55 GMT <angelborroy> which is the owner of that process?

2017-02-24 13:08:06 GMT <Dirk23> root :)

2017-02-24 13:08:18 GMT <angelborroy> ftp.port=21

2017-02-24 13:08:21 GMT <Dirk23> :)

2017-02-24 13:08:22 GMT <Dirk23> yes

2017-02-24 13:08:37 GMT <Dirk23> i allready had ftp.port in config

2017-02-24 13:08:47 GMT <angelborroy> ftp.enabled=true then

2017-02-24 13:09:10 GMT <Dirk23> ftp.server=true? or ftp.enabled=true?

2017-02-24 13:09:22 GMT <angelborroy> sorry

2017-02-24 13:09:24 GMT <angelborroy> enabled

2017-02-24 13:10:05 GMT <Dirk23> ftp.enabled=true? or ftp.server=enabled?

2017-02-24 13:15:21 GMT <Dirk23> authenticate

2017-02-24 13:15:21 GMT <angelborroy> ldap

2017-02-24 13:15:40 GMT <Dirk23> ah, now. I was to fast :)

2017-02-24 13:15:41 GMT <Dirk23> thnx

2017-02-24 13:23:36 GMT <Dirk23> how often does alfresco sync with ldap?

2017-02-24 13:25:09 GMT <angelborroy> once a day

2017-02-24 13:25:23 GMT <angelborroy> at midnight

2017-02-24 13:25:33 GMT <Dirk23> hmmm.... yesterday i added a new user to alfresco user group but she is not in list

2017-02-24 13:25:52 GMT <angelborroy> so you have an issue

2017-02-24 13:26:02 GMT <Dirk23> synchronization.import.cron=0 0 0 * * -> alfresco-global.properties?

2017-02-24 13:26:08 GMT <angelborroy> yep

2017-02-24 13:26:32 GMT <Dirk23> i dont think i have that in my config

2017-02-24 13:26:37 GMT <angelborroy> this is the default value if you does not add it to alfresco-global

2017-02-24 13:26:56 GMT <Dirk23> synchronization.synchronizeChangesOnly=false

2017-02-24 13:26:56 GMT <Dirk23> synchronization.import.cron=0 0 1 * * ?

2017-02-24 13:26:56 GMT <Dirk23> synchronization.autoCreatePeopleOnLogin=true

2017-02-24 13:26:57 GMT <angelborroy> you can override it including a new entry in alfresco-global

2017-02-24 13:27:14 GMT <angelborroy> so you have every night at 1 am

2017-02-24 13:27:41 GMT <angelborroy> maybe you are stopping your server for backup or so?

2017-02-24 13:28:30 GMT <Dirk23> when i change the cron to every minute, what would it look like? 1 0 0 * * ?

2017-02-24 13:29:11 GMT <angelborroy> 0/1 * * * * ?

2017-02-24 13:53:17 GMT <Dirk23> wow. i seem to have an issue with ldap sync. alfresco.log gets spammed with: Caused by: javax.naming.SizeLimitExceededException: [LDAP: error code 4 - Sizelimit Exceeded]; remaining name ''

2017-02-24 14:00:02 GMT <IanW1> Dirk23: I think you're hitting the feature that LDAP servers can have a maximum number of results per query (500 for OpenLDAP IIRC) - I think there are settings in alfresco-global.properties to allow paging or you can change the ldap server

2017-02-24 14:00:21 GMT <Dirk23> ldap.synchronization.queryBatchSize

2017-02-24 14:00:25 GMT <Dirk23> its set to 0

2017-02-24 14:13:45 GMT <Dirk23> IanW1, dap.synchronization.queryBatchSize?

2017-02-24 14:14:16 GMT <Dirk23> ldap.synchronization.queryBatchSize

2017-02-24 14:14:51 GMT <IanW1> Dirk23: seems reasonable - I don't know off the top of my head

2017-02-24 14:16:01 GMT <Dirk23> well taht one didnt help. after setting it to 100, i had NO USERS anymore in alfresco. After setting it back to 0 LDAP Users are still not able to login to alfresco

2017-02-24 14:45:51 GMT <IanW1> Did it run a sync while you had it set to 100, and did the error messages reappear

2017-02-24 14:46:06 GMT <Dirk23> it didnt change

2017-02-24 14:46:19 GMT <Dirk23> i changed to LDAP Stuff now i get: Unbalanced parenthesis

2017-02-24 14:52:01 GMT <fcorti> Hi all, in 10 minutes the Office Hours about Alfresco University

2017-02-24 14:52:06 GMT <fcorti> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v302NaHpuRo

2017-02-24 14:54:19 GMT <Tichodroma> I get a strage error when starting Alfresco 5.0d with three custom AMPS:

2017-02-24 14:54:21 GMT <Tichodroma> Caused by: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: The servlets named [test-servlet] and [test-servlet] are both mapped to the url-pattern [/test-servlet/*] which is not permitted

2017-02-24 14:54:40 GMT <Tichodroma> If I uninstall one of these AMPs, the system starts without any problem.

2017-02-24 14:56:18 GMT <Tichodroma> I find nothing in any AMP tat defines this servlet

2017-02-24 14:56:24 GMT <Tichodroma> ideas?

2017-02-24 15:00:03 GMT <fcorti> We are live at Office Hours!

2017-02-24 15:08:23 GMT <mrks_js> Tichodroma: sounds like there is some demo code in one of the amps? maybe some web*.xml hidden in a META-INF folder?

2017-02-24 15:12:37 GMT -yreg- Alfresco Office Hours is on ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v302NaHpuRo

2017-02-24 15:19:26 GMT <Tichodroma> mrks_js: I'll take a look

2017-02-24 15:19:46 GMT <Tichodroma> no XML besides the pom.xml

2017-02-24 15:20:26 GMT <mrks_js> maybe that test project is being imported as a dependency?

2017-02-24 15:20:39 GMT <Tichodroma> !

2017-02-24 15:20:46 GMT <Tichodroma> that' could be it

2017-02-24 15:22:00 GMT <mrks_js> cool! let me know if that helped :-)

2017-02-24 15:23:19 GMT <Tichodroma> sure, applying now ...

2017-02-24 15:26:59 GMT <Tichodroma> hm, I've remove the src/test stuff I don't need from two of the three modules but the error remains

2017-02-24 15:34:24 GMT <mrks_js> i believe the error must be fixed in the test project web*.xml files. have you tried cleaning tomcat cache as well?

2017-02-24 15:34:38 GMT <Tichodroma> Silly me. I've used maven-assembly-plugin while I had two dependency AMPs not set on <scope>provided</scope> m(

2017-02-24 15:37:43 GMT <Tichodroma> That's why I prefer JAR packaging over AMP :) No need for maven-assembly-plugin

2017-02-24 15:41:29 GMT <sujaypillai> Sprint?

2017-02-24 15:41:37 GMT <sujaypillai> Or Spring

2017-02-24 15:41:44 GMT <sujaypillai> ;)

2017-02-24 15:41:52 GMT <fcorti> where?

2017-02-24 15:41:55 GMT <fcorti> :-)

2017-02-24 15:42:13 GMT <sujaypillai> just a typo in the last page she showed

2017-02-24 15:42:22 GMT <fcorti> aops.. will tell her

2017-02-24 15:42:49 GMT <sujaypillai> $3,250 USD per Passport :P too costly

2017-02-24 15:45:05 GMT <fcorti> I asked this for you... probably it could be intersting as topic

2017-02-24 15:47:26 GMT <sujaypillai> the price for certification is reasonable but the university passport is too high (only for one user)

2017-02-24 18:54:14 GMT <jpotts> ~ later tell afaust Is this the place to add ideas for the BeeCon Hack-a-thon? https://community.alfresco.com/docs/DOC-6575-projects-and-teams-beecon-hackathon-2017 I added a couple of my ideas but I didn't see any others.

2017-02-24 18:54:14 GMT <alfbot> jpotts: The operation succeeded.

2017-02-24 18:55:19 GMT <AFaust> jpotts: Yes it is

2017-02-24 18:55:34 GMT <AFaust> Just saw the update

2017-02-24 18:55:51 GMT <jpotts> Oh, cool, didn't know you were around

2017-02-24 18:56:21 GMT <jpotts> Guess it is pretty early to expect ideas to be there yet

2017-02-24 18:56:34 GMT <AFaust> Just got back from a customer day trip that started at 5:30 am after a night where I maybe slept 30 min...

2017-02-24 18:57:05 GMT <jpotts> Ooh that's not good. You should go to bed. Everything's fine here.

2017-02-24 18:57:28 GMT <AFaust> Yes, still a bit early for expecting people to file their ideas.

2017-02-24 19:30:53 GMT <jpotts> If someone is moving from Community Edition to Enterprise Edition and you cannot get the schema versions to match exactly, is it better to go to a lower schema number or a higher schema number or are they equally bad?

2017-02-24 19:31:29 GMT <jpotts> Sorry, I meant from Enterprise Edition to Community Edition

2017-02-24 19:32:05 GMT <jpotts> I guess it probably depends on the exact schema differences

2017-02-24 19:42:22 GMT <yreg> jpotts, I would definitely go to a higher schema number

2017-02-24 19:43:28 GMT <yreg> Ah from EE to CE, I would suppose them to be equally bad
