2017-04-24 06:37:11 GMT <alfbot> twen: Sent 1 day, 11 hours, and 10 minutes ago: <AFaust> Always use the proper host name for any network address configuration. The public proxy name should be a separate DNS record that is only used by end-users/clients to address the HTTPd proxy. Proxy should forward the host name to Tomcat. Main things in Alfresco configuration that needs to use the proxy name is config for mail URL generation and AOS.

2017-04-24 09:37:22 GMT <fwu> hi all!

2017-04-24 11:13:56 GMT <Fiifi> Hi Guys!

2017-04-24 11:14:37 GMT <Fiifi> Where can I find the latest Records Management for Community 5.2?

2017-04-24 11:17:59 GMT <yreg> I am not sure it is out yet, in case it is, you should find it within the latest GA file list

2017-04-24 11:20:29 GMT <yreg> it's RM 2.5

2017-04-24 11:21:05 GMT <yreg> Fiifi, https://github.com/Alfresco/records-management/releases/tag/V2.5.b

2017-04-24 11:21:06 GMT <alfbot> Title: Release V2.5.b · Alfresco/records-management · GitHub (at github.com)

2017-04-24 11:22:19 GMT <yreg> But you will probably need to build it yourself as I can not see it in the file list

2017-04-24 11:22:36 GMT <yreg> nor on artifactory

2017-04-24 11:22:46 GMT <yreg> s/artifactory/nexus/

2017-04-24 11:23:29 GMT <Fiifi> yes! I coudnt see it in https://community.alfresco.com/docs/DOC-6641-alfresco-community-edition-file-list-201702

2017-04-24 11:33:00 GMT <fwu> ppl, does anyone knows where the "item" object from the node-header.get.html.ftl comes from?

2017-04-24 12:40:40 GMT <fwu> arghh

2017-04-24 12:41:04 GMT <fwu> also the node object from node-header.get.html.ftl

2017-04-24 12:41:08 GMT <fwu> Where this come from?

2017-04-24 13:26:31 GMT <murdiz> Hi anyone here

2017-04-24 13:27:51 GMT <murdiz> Lo all, I have a question regarding transformations in alfresco that don't seem to be triggering my bash script at all

2017-04-24 13:35:11 GMT <yreg> murdiz, can you elaborate ?

2017-04-24 13:56:37 GMT <murdiz> oh hey yes sure, I'm trying to get a transformation running a bash script from where I use pdfsandwitch to convert pdf to text and apparently solr will pick any text up and index it so that PDF docs with images can be searchable by text

2017-04-24 14:00:42 GMT <murdiz> so I have the bean descriptor: /opt/alfresco-community/tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/extension/custom-transformer-tesseract-context.xml

2017-04-24 14:00:59 GMT <murdiz> it's got an id like <bean id="transformer.worker.pdfimg2ocrtxt"

2017-04-24 14:01:09 GMT <murdiz> please do say if I'm spamming

2017-04-24 14:01:51 GMT <murdiz> I think I'll just point you to my sources: http://www.seedim.com.au/content/alfresco-search-pdf-images-using-transformations-and-tesseract-ocr

2017-04-24 14:02:53 GMT <murdiz> They said they only managed to get it up after connecting via JMX and tweaking properties for transformations, there also a bunch of logging functions for transformations in enterprise. I was wondering if I couldn't accomplish the same in community edition

2017-04-24 14:04:53 GMT <murdiz> The global properties and a bunch of logging levels set should be enough and I don't mind having to restart my server for the changes to take effect.

2017-04-24 14:06:06 GMT <murdiz> I'll keep digging and will post my findings here or maybe blog about it. Any help would be highly appreciated.

2017-04-24 14:24:24 GMT <douglascrp> murdiz, there is an addon that does that
