Daily Log for #alfresco

2017-03-29 07:00:54 GMT <yreg> Morning everyone !

2017-03-29 07:01:46 GMT <yreg> truelai, how sure are you the user mounting cifs in samba has access to the new documents ?

2017-03-29 09:33:23 GMT <fwu> hello all!

2017-03-29 10:39:26 GMT <alfbot> aviriel: Sent 3 weeks, 0 days, 23 hours, and 42 minutes ago: <yreg> ping

2017-03-29 10:39:45 GMT <aviriel> yreg: pong :)

2017-03-29 10:40:34 GMT <aviriel> or maybe "Reqest timed out"

2017-03-29 11:02:25 GMT <yreg> aviriel, hehe, that was 3 weeks ago :D

2017-03-29 13:43:52 GMT <fwu> ppl, is there an activiti business modeler? it seems somewhere in time there was one from signavio...

2017-03-29 13:47:57 GMT <angelborroy> fwu which is “activiti business modeler”?

2017-03-29 13:48:04 GMT <angelborroy> what stands for that term?

2017-03-29 13:48:36 GMT <fwu> something to modeling less technical than the eclipse editor

2017-03-29 13:49:00 GMT <angelborroy> afaik this is call Step Editor

2017-03-29 13:49:14 GMT <fwu> is that a tool?

2017-03-29 13:49:21 GMT <angelborroy> in Activiti Enterprise there is also a web design tool for that

2017-03-29 13:49:38 GMT <angelborroy> maybe in the next Activiti Community 6 the tool will also be included

2017-03-29 13:50:08 GMT <fwu> ok, I thought there were some tools for that in the past

2017-03-29 13:50:50 GMT <fwu> there was an "activiti modeller"

2017-03-29 13:50:54 GMT <fwu> I read that somewhere

2017-03-29 13:51:03 GMT <fwu> but couldnt find it

2017-03-29 13:51:43 GMT <fwu> it was a Non−technical modeling (web−based) tool... I believe...

2017-03-29 13:52:06 GMT <fwu> but if you dont know about it, then it may be dead

2017-03-29 13:54:10 GMT <angelborroy> The Step Editor

2017-03-29 13:54:13 GMT <angelborroy> let me find it

2017-03-29 13:54:33 GMT <angelborroy> This one is for Enterprise

2017-03-29 13:54:34 GMT <angelborroy> https://docs.alfresco.com/activiti/docs/user-guide/1.3.2/#app-step-editor

2017-03-29 13:54:35 GMT <alfbot> Title: Alfresco Activiti (at docs.alfresco.com)

2017-03-29 13:54:50 GMT <angelborroy> However, they told me this is not going to be included in Community

2017-03-29 13:55:57 GMT <yreg> AFaust, I think I am hitting that error you mentionned before about sites and caches

2017-03-29 13:56:14 GMT <yreg> do you remember the workaround you found back then ?

2017-03-29 13:57:01 GMT <AFaust> fwu: The Signavio modeller still exists as far as I know

2017-03-29 13:57:19 GMT <AFaust> But it is mainly "standard BPMN" and not really related to Activiti

2017-03-29 13:57:36 GMT <AFaust> yreg: "That issue I mentioned" - I mention quite a lot of issues

2017-03-29 13:57:53 GMT <yreg> one where the caches fire NPE

2017-03-29 13:58:01 GMT <fwu> AFaust, ok. I thought it could be an open source project. But it seems it isnt.

2017-03-29 13:58:03 GMT <yreg> s/fire/throw/

2017-03-29 13:58:30 GMT <fwu> angelborroy, that was the kind of tool I was looking yes, but in the community edition :)

2017-03-29 13:58:50 GMT <angelborroy> fwu you can use that step editor also from eclipse plugin

2017-03-29 13:59:05 GMT <yreg> https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/browse/ALF-21875

2017-03-29 13:59:08 GMT <angelborroy> fwu I think it also works for Community

2017-03-29 13:59:20 GMT <AFaust> yreg: Ahh - now I understand

2017-03-29 13:59:48 GMT <AFaust> It didn't click with just "sites and caches", because I only think of that issue in relation to the interceptor

2017-03-29 14:00:25 GMT <yreg> I am on EE

2017-03-29 14:00:43 GMT <yreg> but I am having the same issue you described

2017-03-29 14:00:54 GMT <yreg> did come to find a workaround for it ?

2017-03-29 14:00:55 GMT <AFaust> Good to know...

2017-03-29 14:01:09 GMT <AFaust> That EE is also messed up with regards to how this is affecting the caches

2017-03-29 14:01:11 GMT <fwu> angelborroy, but my goal is to have an editor for business users. they dont like ecplise :)

2017-03-29 14:01:16 GMT <AFaust> (which I already assumed)

2017-03-29 14:01:34 GMT <fwu> but if it is from the EE version, how can I use it?

2017-03-29 14:01:59 GMT <angelborroy> in EE version is included inside webapp

2017-03-29 14:02:04 GMT <angelborroy> you can try for a month

2017-03-29 14:02:38 GMT <AFaust> yreg: The workaround for the customer in question was: "Just make sure you have at least one tag set on a node in the site"

2017-03-29 14:03:21 GMT <AFaust> It was deemed to be a non-critical issue that only occurs in a very specific constellation (site without tags)

2017-03-29 14:04:12 GMT <fwu> angelborroy, but then if I like it, I will not be able to deliver it for the users due to license restrictions, right?

2017-03-29 14:05:03 GMT <angelborroy> it’s distributed as part of activiti-app webapp, so you cannot “deliver” it to anyone

2017-03-29 14:06:48 GMT <yreg> AFaust, so if I add tags in all sites this will be solved ?

2017-03-29 14:07:21 GMT <AFaust> Not immediately, but as soon as the job to update the tag scopes has run (runs every hour by default)

2017-03-29 14:10:06 GMT <yreg> well I did not have to wait, directly after adding tags to sites, my issue got resolved

2017-03-29 14:10:08 GMT <yreg> thanks

2017-03-29 14:13:20 GMT <IanW1> yreg, AFaust - may not be related but https://github.com/malariagen/alfresco-discussions/wiki/Troubleshooting

2017-03-29 14:13:21 GMT <alfbot> Title: Troubleshooting · malariagen/alfresco-discussions Wiki · GitHub (at github.com)

2017-03-29 14:13:55 GMT <AFaust> IanW1: Extremely likely that this is related

2017-03-29 14:15:00 GMT <AFaust> For the issue to appear it is absolutely required that a tag once existed in the site and has been removed, leaving the site without any tags

2017-03-29 14:18:20 GMT <IanW1> AFaust: I'll add a comment to the jira then

2017-03-29 14:23:57 GMT <yreg> AFaust, I was wrong, appearently last time I added tags exactly at the right moment before 16h00

2017-03-29 14:24:17 GMT <yreg> now that I want to do the same in Prod, it is not working

2017-03-29 14:24:39 GMT <yreg> will wait until 17h00 and see

2017-03-29 14:42:39 GMT <truelai> hi, yreg. I'm sure. Even when using FTP as admin user, I get the same results. Something is way off.

2017-03-29 14:52:06 GMT <yreg> ~later tell DarkStar1 ping

2017-03-29 14:52:06 GMT <alfbot> yreg: The operation succeeded.

2017-03-29 14:52:14 GMT <yreg> ~seen darkstar1

2017-03-29 14:52:14 GMT <alfbot> yreg: darkstar1 was last seen in #alfresco 5 days, 4 hours, 45 minutes, and 8 seconds ago: <DarkStar1> Wow lot of unresolved issues :)

2017-03-29 15:08:13 GMT <douglascrp> hello

2017-03-29 15:08:52 GMT <yreg> Hey douglascrp

2017-03-29 15:26:14 GMT <truelai> anyone in here do remote assist gigs?

2017-03-29 16:02:42 GMT <AFaust> truelai: For customers, yes. I suppose this also applies to all other commercial / freelancer people in this channel. For some there is a requirement that the customer is using Enterprise Edition.

2017-03-29 16:31:24 GMT <truelai> I'm on community. If anyone does small gigs, please feel free to ping me. Something is off with our instance and I'm not the one who rolled it out. I could use a second set of experienced eyes to help me out. Probably just an hour or three.

2017-03-29 18:15:51 GMT <yreg> AFaust, does this error ring a bell : https://pastebin.com/Np3QcGUp

2017-03-29 18:15:52 GMT <alfbot> Title: [ALFRESCO] 2017-03-29 20:06:35,653 ERROR [org.alfresco.fileserver] [Sess_FTP11 - Pastebin.com (at pastebin.com)

2017-03-29 18:16:13 GMT <yreg> I am having it when I try to connect to alfresco using FTP

2017-03-29 18:19:21 GMT <AFaust> not really - quite generic socket issue

2017-03-29 18:19:41 GMT <AFaust> running in docker?

2017-03-29 18:22:09 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, not the activiti designer is able to open the diagram

2017-03-29 18:22:18 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, it was the lack of CDATA

2017-03-29 18:22:53 GMT <yreg> AFaust, yes

2017-03-29 18:23:04 GMT <yreg> https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/browse/ACE-5097

2017-03-29 18:23:21 GMT <yreg> I found this issue which seems pretty much like the one I am facing

2017-03-29 18:23:33 GMT <yreg> but it was closed as not a bug

2017-03-29 18:46:06 GMT <yreg> AFaust, when I access alfresco with port forwarding I get the error

2017-03-29 18:46:16 GMT <yreg> when I access it directly I have no issues

2017-03-29 18:53:47 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, have you seem this? http://www.giuseppeurso.eu/en/alfresco-tips-and-tricks-11-ftp-port-range/

2017-03-29 18:53:51 GMT <alfbot> Title: Alfresco tips and tricks – #11 FTP port range - Giuseppe Urso Blog (at www.giuseppeurso.eu)

2017-03-29 18:54:29 GMT <douglascrp> he is talking about port forwarding there too

2017-03-29 19:08:36 GMT <yreg> that config is not adding anything here

2017-03-29 19:51:34 GMT <douglascrp> I have just created this ugly code in order to generate a due date for a task in a workflow

2017-03-29 19:51:53 GMT <douglascrp> do you guys know a better way?

2017-03-29 19:52:15 GMT <douglascrp> I am going to use this in a javascript task listener

2017-03-29 20:26:39 GMT <AFaust> douglascrp: Something wrong with just using java.util.Calendar?

2017-03-29 20:26:54 GMT <douglascrp> not really

2017-03-29 20:27:12 GMT <douglascrp> *no

2017-03-29 20:27:47 GMT <douglascrp> if it is able to do the "math", I am ok with it

2017-03-29 20:27:51 GMT <douglascrp> I will take a look

2017-03-29 20:32:17 GMT <jnoob22> truelai, what kind of problem you are having/

2017-03-29 20:32:18 GMT <jnoob22> ?
