2017-06-14 05:20:03 GMT <bhuvana_> hi all
2017-06-14 06:12:16 GMT *** yreg is now known as Guest37889
2017-06-14 06:23:20 GMT <Guest37889> Morning everyone !
2017-06-14 06:23:56 GMT <Guest37889> does anyone know of a bug in 5.1.x regarding mimetypes changes ?
2017-06-14 07:47:33 GMT <bhuvana_> hi all
2017-06-14 07:49:56 GMT <bhuvana_> comment of previous task is not showing in next task
2017-06-14 07:57:01 GMT <angelborroy> bhuvana_ this is default behaviour
2017-06-14 07:59:11 GMT <angelborroy> bhuvana_ there are different improvement requests for workflow integration in Alfresco Share (https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/browse/MNT-11122, https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/browse/MNT-14080 …)
2017-06-14 07:59:40 GMT <angelborroy> bhuvana_ But it looks that they are going to be definitively closed and discarded
2017-06-14 09:37:02 GMT <fwu> hi all!
2017-06-14 09:54:03 GMT <qwebirc58689> Hi Guys Adding aikau jar dependency to share amp gave compilation errors for apache commons logging package (saying the package does not exist, I did not include its dependency though) If I don not include aikau jar dependency the amp build runs sucessfully
2017-06-14 09:55:16 GMT <fwu> ppl I have tis in my alfresco global properties:
2017-06-14 09:55:25 GMT <fwu> ooo.exe=C:/Alfresco2/libreoffice/App/libreoffice/program/soffice.exe ooo.enabled=true ooo.port=8100
2017-06-14 09:55:38 GMT <fwu> what is this used for?
2017-06-14 10:16:41 GMT <fwu> ok, I found an answer from AFaust about this. However, I still have a question regarding transformations: if I have transformation activated like it seems they are, when transformations will be trigger? Only when I explicitly invoke them (with a rule, for instance) or they will be automatically trigger as soon as a specific document type is uploaded to the repository?
2017-06-14 10:18:15 GMT <angelborroy> fwu automatically
2017-06-14 10:18:27 GMT <angelborroy> doclib and pdf
2017-06-14 10:19:11 GMT <angelborroy> the rest when you invoke the transformation
2017-06-14 10:19:27 GMT <fwu> angelborroy, but where is that configured?
2017-06-14 10:20:09 GMT <fwu> and what that means pdf is transformed automatically? Is converted to what?
2017-06-14 10:20:43 GMT <angelborroy> rendition service
2017-06-14 10:21:16 GMT <angelborroy> both doclib and pdf transformations are configured in order to provide Share web app with thumbnails and pdf preview
2017-06-14 10:21:34 GMT <angelborroy> so everytime you upload a file, both transformations are fired
2017-06-14 10:21:58 GMT <fwu> ok, I forgot the thumbnails and the previwes!
2017-06-14 10:22:44 GMT <fwu> does that means that for each uploadded document I will have a node pointing to a file plus a thumbnail and a converted file?
2017-06-14 10:23:25 GMT <angelborroy> yep
2017-06-14 10:23:35 GMT <angelborroy> they are technically children of the original file
2017-06-14 10:24:07 GMT <fwu> and the converted preview is of waht format? any image format?
2017-06-14 10:26:49 GMT <angelborroy> png by default
2017-06-14 10:28:09 GMT <fwu> angelborroy, and where this configuration is set?
2017-06-14 10:28:38 GMT <fwu> so the viewer actually previews png files...
2017-06-14 10:29:00 GMT <angelborroy> the viewer preview PDF files
2017-06-14 10:29:09 GMT <angelborroy> the thumbnail in document list is a PNG
2017-06-14 10:30:20 GMT <fwu> ok, then all other formats are transformed in PDF files for previewing and a thumnail is also created for document listing. Is that right?
2017-06-14 10:30:37 GMT <angelborroy> right
2017-06-14 10:31:41 GMT <fwu> so if I disable both converters I will not get preview of documents different of PDF files
2017-06-14 10:32:02 GMT <angelborroy> right again
2017-06-14 10:32:08 GMT <fwu> and I believe this is configured here: transformers.properties
2017-06-14 10:32:18 GMT <angelborroy> not really
2017-06-14 10:32:35 GMT <angelborroy> disabling thumbnail service
2017-06-14 10:32:38 GMT <angelborroy> system.thumbnail.generate=false
2017-06-14 10:33:02 GMT <fwu> where? in alfresco global properties?
2017-06-14 10:33:06 GMT <angelborroy> yep
2017-06-14 10:33:36 GMT <fwu> and the pdf conversion for preview?
2017-06-14 10:33:43 GMT <angelborroy> I’m looking for it
2017-06-14 10:33:47 GMT <angelborroy> I can’t remember
2017-06-14 10:34:28 GMT <angelborroy> yep
2017-06-14 10:34:33 GMT <angelborroy> is in the share part
2017-06-14 10:34:36 GMT <angelborroy> share-config-custom
2017-06-14 10:34:59 GMT <angelborroy> find it at slide 4: https://www.slideshare.net/LuisCabaceira/alfresco-tuning-part1-54221871
2017-06-14 10:35:00 GMT <alfbot> Title: Alfresco tuning part1 (at www.slideshare.net)
2017-06-14 10:35:32 GMT <angelborroy> so thumbnails are generated by repo (automatically) but PDFs are generated by share
2017-06-14 10:36:31 GMT <fwu> angelborroy, a big thank you!
2017-06-14 10:36:39 GMT <angelborroy> you’re welcome

2017-06-14 10:54:29 GMT <fwu> ppl, Alfresco supports nested security groups, right? But I cant create nested groups in alfresco community in a visual way, right?
2017-06-14 12:15:47 GMT <mtsiak> hi all. for syncing alfresco and drupal, CMIS API module is recommended?
2017-06-14 12:33:19 GMT <angelborroy> mtsiak I don’t think so
2017-06-14 12:33:40 GMT <angelborroy> that module was developed for an old Alfresco release
2017-06-14 12:33:55 GMT <angelborroy> mtsiak it’s not working with Alfresco 5.x
2017-06-14 12:36:02 GMT <mtsiak> we test it with 5.0 works. Fixed a syncing error, caused by https://www.drupal.org/node/2442141
2017-06-14 12:36:07 GMT <angelborroy> yep
2017-06-14 12:36:20 GMT <angelborroy> I’m seeing that it has been updated in the last years
2017-06-14 12:36:25 GMT <angelborroy> so it should work
2017-06-14 12:36:26 GMT <mtsiak> yep...
2017-06-14 12:37:02 GMT <angelborroy> it’s just a PHP CMIS client based in Apache Chemistry
2017-06-14 12:38:15 GMT <mtsiak> i remember the presentation of the zaragoza univercity. what module did they used?
2017-06-14 12:38:21 GMT <mtsiak> yes.
2017-06-14 12:38:44 GMT <angelborroy> they used that module with some patches
2017-06-14 12:38:59 GMT <angelborroy> probably you can contact José Antonio Gutiérrez for further details
2017-06-14 12:39:17 GMT <mtsiak> ok. nice. will do that.
2017-06-14 12:40:10 GMT <mtsiak> we will test the syncing processes, but it is good to take some feedback.
2017-06-14 12:40:13 GMT <mtsiak> thanks.
2017-06-14 12:43:00 GMT <mtsiak> about, esing cert. i left it for now. dont know how to call the sign action from the workflow taks (i.e. added in the package item group).
2017-06-14 12:43:30 GMT <mtsiak> but i you have any ideas left, i could give them a try.
2017-06-14 12:43:37 GMT <mtsiak> :(
2017-06-14 12:43:47 GMT <angelborroy> sure, let me find some time for it
2017-06-14 12:44:05 GMT <mtsiak> ok. thanks.
2017-06-14 12:44:43 GMT <IanW1> fwu: https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/browse/ACE-5679
2017-06-14 13:18:33 GMT <fwu> IanW1, thank you, but that doesnt seems related with my question! Im not searching for a bug but for a feature that I believe it is not in share, am I right?
2017-06-14 13:24:58 GMT <IanW1> fwu: Just pointing out that if you use nested groups you might have problems.... - you can create subgroups - select a group, then click on the + above the list of members
2017-06-14 13:29:09 GMT <fwu> IanW1, let me try that
2017-06-14 13:30:03 GMT <fwu> IanW1, you are right, thank you!
2017-06-14 13:30:13 GMT <fwu> I never tried that... select a group.... hehhee
2017-06-14 13:31:54 GMT <fwu> ok, regarding the bug also,
2017-06-14 13:31:58 GMT <fwu> many thanks
2017-06-14 13:32:56 GMT <fwu> ppl, im playing here with transformations. I found the webpreview node/file for a document and downloaded. What is the format of this file?
2017-06-14 13:35:04 GMT <fwu> wow, it is a swf file
2017-06-14 13:35:34 GMT <fwu> now I understand why there is so much references to flash
2017-06-14 13:36:19 GMT <fwu> but now I dont understand how the current browsers can load this. I beleive the viewer can load swf files but is not using flash right?
2017-06-14 13:36:38 GMT <fwu> because if so, I would have permission problems in most browsers
2017-06-14 13:38:47 GMT <fwu> actually it is a flash player. I can see that right clicking on it.
2017-06-14 13:41:01 GMT <fwu> strange, chrome is still supporting flash, so I see the viewer in a nice way
2017-06-14 13:41:55 GMT <fwu> but in firefox I can see only one page of the document and I dont see the viewer tools menu. SO in firefox, the player is being replaced by any other thing. Maybe n html5 object?
2017-06-14 13:51:59 GMT <fwu> ppl, if all documents are converted this way: source -> pdf -> flash and if there is a growing lack of support for loading swf files on browsers, shuldnt alfresco stop in hte second conversion (to PDF), and show the PDF file?
2017-06-14 13:54:01 GMT <fwu> and if pdf is an issue in some browsers (but I believe most has internal support), then why not to use pdf.js, for instance?
2017-06-14 13:54:05 GMT <fcorti> Hi all, in 7 minutes Tech Talk Live 106 will happen here:
2017-06-14 13:54:06 GMT <fcorti> https://youtu.be/Zz50eJKCuNA
2017-06-14 13:54:23 GMT <fwu> fcorti, great. thanks!
2017-06-14 13:54:41 GMT <fcorti> Today we will introduce the Digital Business Platform with Content & Search for beginners and newbies.
2017-06-14 13:54:55 GMT <fcorti> Sorry fwu to interrupt your thread :-)
2017-06-14 13:55:11 GMT <fwu> haha no problem. Im there now!
2017-06-14 14:00:05 GMT <bmejias> hi all.
2017-06-14 14:00:31 GMT <bmejias> I'm going to rush and grab my coffee to be ready to enjoy angelborroy's TTL
2017-06-14 14:02:31 GMT <fcorti> waiting for you :-)
2017-06-14 14:05:12 GMT <bmejias> nice idea about the 3-5 tutorials
2017-06-14 14:05:25 GMT <bmejias> I hope the community will jump on that
2017-06-14 14:05:58 GMT <bmejias> newbies sounded like new bees when fcorti said it :D
2017-06-14 14:06:21 GMT <kgastaldo> @bmejias - Me too for the videos. They're one of the more popular resources - but we could use a ton more
2017-06-14 14:06:50 GMT <bmejias> it also forces to create content that is actually working...
2017-06-14 14:07:17 GMT <bmejias> sometimes written instructions can miss one instruction and then the whole procedure breaks
2017-06-14 14:09:39 GMT <kgastaldo> Good point
2017-06-14 14:13:03 GMT <kgastaldo> So sad you can't see @fcorti's hands going wild ;)
2017-06-14 14:13:32 GMT <bmejias> hahaha
2017-06-14 14:13:43 GMT <bmejias> I can imagine that
2017-06-14 14:14:04 GMT <bmejias> kgastaldo you should screencast that for the "behind the scenes" series
2017-06-14 14:14:23 GMT <bmejias> also, some of the awkward silences right before going live
2017-06-14 14:15:30 GMT <kgastaldo> Gah! I can never time it right. You hit the button and then it takes a few seconds. Awkward silence or I start too soon.
2017-06-14 14:16:16 GMT <bmejias> yes, but even before we can see it... when it's 2 minutes before starting
2017-06-14 14:16:46 GMT <fcorti> kgastaldo, bmejias, next time I'll point another camera on my hands... and we will call Alfresco hands-moving presentation
2017-06-14 14:16:50 GMT <bmejias> ah, the inbound email protocol... never really understood how to use that.
2017-06-14 14:17:17 GMT * AFaust is annoyed that all this dirty Activiti Angular hacking has made him forget about TTL
2017-06-14 14:18:03 GMT <bmejias> fcorti good idea. You can call that camera "Italian subtitles" or "Italian support communication material"
2017-06-14 14:18:14 GMT <kgastaldo> "italian sign language"
2017-06-14 14:18:26 GMT <bmejias> yeah, that's more accurate
2017-06-14 14:18:44 GMT <bmejias> angel, the font is too small
2017-06-14 14:18:45 GMT <fcorti> at end... I'll launch a pizza on the screen.. weird
2017-06-14 14:18:52 GMT <kgastaldo> @afaust - Does that mean we can't ask you to host a TTL on Activiti?
2017-06-14 14:19:34 GMT <kgastaldo> We'll have the slides online after the event as well
2017-06-14 14:19:44 GMT <fcorti> https://www.slideshare.net/FrancescoCorti/tech-talk-live-106-introduction-to-the-alfresco-digital-business-platform-content-search
2017-06-14 14:19:45 GMT <alfbot> Title: Tech Talk Live 106 - Introduction to the Alfresco Digital Business Pl… (at www.slideshare.net)
2017-06-14 14:20:30 GMT <bmejias> ok, thanks for those slides
2017-06-14 14:20:30 GMT <AFaust> kgastaldo: If you are not afraid of an MA content rating...
2017-06-14 14:21:35 GMT <AFaust> I still have a long way to go to understand how to develop with Activiti without Activiti getting in your way every 5 minutes...
2017-06-14 14:22:19 GMT <AFaust> Disclaimer: I am obviously not doing the "beaten path" development with Activiti...
2017-06-14 14:24:28 GMT <AFaust> fwu: Concerning your question re previews. Alfresco is already using PDF.js...
2017-06-14 14:25:54 GMT <AFaust> And Alfresco will not convert documents to Flash at all since the introduction of PDF.js unless you configure the Flash previewer to have a higher priority...
2017-06-14 14:34:13 GMT <AFaust> "Version cannot be removed" - Well... that is deceptively simplified.
2017-06-14 14:41:00 GMT <bmejias> hehehe
2017-06-14 14:47:53 GMT <AFaust> Did he just say "Lucene syntax"?
2017-06-14 14:48:01 GMT * AFaust runs around screaming....
2017-06-14 14:48:14 GMT <AFaust> Never tell people they can use the Lucene syntax. FTS / CMIS only...
2017-06-14 14:48:56 GMT <AFaust> ^^ Those receive best support from engineering during development and only those support DB query...
2017-06-14 14:51:05 GMT <fcorti> It is for completeness...
2017-06-14 14:51:22 GMT <fcorti> When newbies will come in the Q&A you tell them ;-)
2017-06-14 14:52:29 GMT <AFaust> fcorti: My "screaming" is mostly because Alfresco will not remove those old features when they are clearly obsolete (even not marked as deprecated yet)
2017-06-14 14:55:02 GMT <fcorti> ;-)
2017-06-14 14:58:42 GMT <bmejias> question, what's the best way to get non technical people using search as easy as google search
2017-06-14 14:58:48 GMT <bmejias> I'm not talking about the results...
2017-06-14 14:58:57 GMT <bmejias> but about how to state the search queries
2017-06-14 14:59:51 GMT <AFaust> bmejias: My suggestion - enhance the search web script to allow users to use the localized property labels as selectors so they don't have to know the technical terms.
2017-06-14 15:00:36 GMT <AFaust> I did a query parser + translater in one of my projects that allowed user to state query in their own language (including keywords like AND/OR) and properties / types / aspects based on localized model names
2017-06-14 15:01:01 GMT <bmejias> ok... and things like: I want documents modified by fred
2017-06-14 15:01:25 GMT <bmejias> file:*.doc modifier:fred
2017-06-14 15:01:41 GMT <AFaust> That requires that those clients / integrations always specify the name of the app / client that makes the call (e.g. via HTTP header) so it could be added as a technical metadata property
2017-06-14 15:02:04 GMT <AFaust> Or did you mean the actual user account "fred" and not the Xenit product "Fred"?
2017-06-14 15:02:10 GMT <bmejias> hahaha
2017-06-14 15:02:34 GMT <bmejias> sorry, I was said the first name that came to my mind...
2017-06-14 15:02:45 GMT <bmejias> I have a Chilean friend called Alfredo
2017-06-14 15:03:01 GMT <bmejias> so, when I think about Alfresco related names
2017-06-14 15:03:15 GMT <bmejias> I used his English version of his name
2017-06-14 15:03:37 GMT <bmejias> yes.... please thanks Angel to be a pioneer on these new types of TTLs
2017-06-14 15:04:21 GMT <AFaust> A query translater would be able to introduce new "meta" fields in the search that users can use for simple user names and that get translated to multi-stage lookups (e.g. resolving natural name to user name, and then doing the actual query)
2017-06-14 15:04:45 GMT <bmejias> ok, thanks AFaust
2017-06-14 15:05:01 GMT <bmejias> Thanks to kgastaldo and fcorti for hosting TTL
2017-06-14 15:05:08 GMT <bmejias> great job by Angel
2017-06-14 15:05:39 GMT <bmejias> when is the next event? TTL next month? or office hours?
2017-06-14 15:05:53 GMT <fcorti> bmejias, thanks... and thanks angelborroy
2017-06-14 15:05:59 GMT <fcorti> we want to do more...
2017-06-14 15:06:01 GMT <bmejias> I'm leaving now to the supermarket.... need supplies for weekend festival... yeaaaahhh
2017-06-14 15:06:13 GMT <fcorti> guys, any volunteer?
2017-06-14 15:06:35 GMT <bmejias> I could do an office hours with a review of the festival, but probably no one will be interesting in metal
2017-06-14 15:06:56 GMT <kgastaldo> Our Office Hours guest is up in the air - so normally it would be on June 30th
2017-06-14 15:07:12 GMT <kgastaldo> once we get it locked down, I'll announce. If it falls through, we'll be back for TTL on July 12
2017-06-14 15:09:46 GMT <bmejias> thanks for the info kgastaldo
2017-06-14 15:09:52 GMT <bmejias> see you guys...
2017-06-14 15:16:46 GMT <fcorti> \m/ bmejias
2017-06-14 15:56:42 GMT <fwu> ppl, does 5.2 still uses this "old" flash previewer?
2017-06-14 15:57:02 GMT <fwu> I realize there is a previewer that uses pdf.js
2017-06-14 15:59:20 GMT <fwu> as a share extra... but with support only to version 4. So I believe that maybe this was integrated in Alfresco 5... it would make sense to remove/limit flash dependency
