2017-08-02 10:29:57 GMT <fwu> hello all!

2017-08-02 10:30:25 GMT <fwu> pppl, I have an addon that is making other addon not work correctly.

2017-08-02 10:30:47 GMT <fwu> the second addon is not adding the new menu items correctly

2017-08-02 10:30:55 GMT <fwu> how can I understand what is going on?

2017-08-02 10:31:17 GMT <fwu> Im sure what addon is making this, but I dont know what is making this inside the addon

2017-08-02 10:34:24 GMT <fwu> I dont get any error

2017-08-02 10:51:44 GMT <fwu> I got it! It was a wrong id in a module.

2017-08-02 11:44:53 GMT <yreg> resplin, did Kevin Roast also quit Alfresco ?

2017-08-02 13:10:22 GMT <fcorti> yreg, unfortunately yes

2017-08-02 13:44:26 GMT <resplin> confirmed

2017-08-02 13:49:51 GMT <xdexter> Hello, how i can install a Add-on?

2017-08-02 13:53:21 GMT <resplin> xdexter: It depends on the add-on. It should have instructions.

2017-08-02 13:54:19 GMT <xdexter> resplin, i need migrate the some sites to a new alfresco installation, so i think use this addon

2017-08-02 13:54:31 GMT <xdexter> i will create a zip file with files and import

2017-08-02 14:01:57 GMT <xdexter> or there are some best way to do this?

2017-08-02 14:15:47 GMT <alfbot> Ziberius: Sent 15 hours and 21 minutes ago: <resplin> The difficulty of an upgrade really depends on what customizations you have made. Upgrading content and metadata isn't generally very hard. 4.0 is known to be vulnerable to a variety of security issues.

2017-08-02 14:16:13 GMT <Ziberius> ok thanx resplin

2017-08-02 14:17:28 GMT <resplin> xdexter: The add-on should have installation instructions. I haven't used that one. I have used the one from Share Extras which is a python script.

2017-08-02 15:11:49 GMT <alfbot> douglascrp: Sent 7 hours and 8 minutes ago: <DarkStar1> send me the code so I can take a look at it.

2017-08-02 15:14:39 GMT <douglascrp> hello guys

2017-08-02 15:14:59 GMT <douglascrp> ok, I was able to include my custom document library in the actions menu for nodes in the faceted-search page

2017-08-02 15:16:24 GMT <douglascrp> how can I include the dependencies, like doclib-actions, global-folder, copy-move-to, toolbar, documentlist, the ones used by this custom action?

2017-08-02 15:27:11 GMT <alfbot> jpotts: Sent 5 days, 16 hours, and 16 minutes ago: <AxelFaust> Still having to keep Explorer customizations alive? Sounds like the walking dead...

2017-08-02 15:44:07 GMT <hanaa> i need help to get started with Alfresco, I have a good experience with Filenet and CM8

2017-08-02 15:44:33 GMT <jpotts> hanaa: Welcome. What specifically can we help you with?

2017-08-02 15:44:50 GMT <hanaa> I just need a tutorial that takes me step by step to all the process of buidling the meta model, giving access rights and buidling search screens

2017-08-02 15:45:01 GMT <hanaa> thanks Jpotts

2017-08-02 15:45:22 GMT <jpotts> hanaa: You've come to the right place: http://ecmarchitect.com/alfresco-developer-series

2017-08-02 15:45:37 GMT <hanaa> I al not sure I understand what space, besides the documentation has the old screens it seems

2017-08-02 15:45:50 GMT <hanaa> thanks I will take a look :)

2017-08-02 15:46:08 GMT <jpotts> hanaa: I don't understand your comment about old screens

2017-08-02 15:46:38 GMT <hanaa> let me show you this

2017-08-02 15:46:46 GMT <jpotts> The official documentation has some tutorials and that can be found at http://docs.alfresco.com. There is a set for Community and a set for Enterprise, by version.

2017-08-02 15:47:10 GMT <hanaa> I dont have the same screen when I login to the dashboard

2017-08-02 15:47:14 GMT <jpotts> hanaa: That's for version 3.4, an ancient version. Is that the version you are working with?

2017-08-02 15:47:47 GMT <hanaa> noi have just downloaded the most recent one, the community edition

2017-08-02 15:48:21 GMT <jpotts> hanaa: Then the docs you want can be found here: http://docs.alfresco.com/community/concepts/dev-for-developers.html

2017-08-02 15:48:40 GMT <jpotts> Which I got to by going to the main http://docs.alfresco.com page

2017-08-02 15:48:41 GMT <alfbot> Title: Alfresco Documentation | Alfresco Documentation (at docs.alfresco.com)

2017-08-02 15:48:48 GMT <hanaa> thanks a lot :)

2017-08-02 15:48:53 GMT <jpotts> sure, np

2017-08-02 15:49:31 GMT <jpotts> I have a quick Share UI action question for the group...

2017-08-02 15:49:33 GMT <hanaa> I actually dont want to use the apis to do everything

2017-08-02 15:49:58 GMT <hanaa> with Filenet we used to customize the oob client (content navigator) based on the users

2017-08-02 15:50:23 GMT <hanaa> we had the concept of desktop where I as admnistrator control the functionality

2017-08-02 15:50:25 GMT <jpotts> If I have a working Share UI action, can I not add it to the Create… menu without going into YUI hell? The UI action uses the onActionFormDialog function and an evaluator to hide/show

2017-08-02 15:51:07 GMT <douglascrp> jpotts, I did that before by using javascript

2017-08-02 15:51:18 GMT <douglascrp> but in my case, it was for the multi-select field

2017-08-02 15:51:40 GMT <jpotts> hanaa: There is not really a similar concept in Alfresco. You can extend Alfresco Share, which is covered in the tutorials and docs I sent, but you aren't going to have fine-grained control over what shows/doesn't show in the UI without writing code

2017-08-02 15:52:30 GMT <jpotts> douglascrp: I've definitely done it the hard way before, I was just naively hoping things had gotten better.

2017-08-02 15:53:28 GMT <hanaa> Thanks j

2017-08-02 15:53:54 GMT <jpotts> douglascrp: So basically I'm going to have to create a JavaScript function that makes the same call to onActionFormDialog that share makes for "standard" UI actions

2017-08-02 15:57:26 GMT <douglascrp> jpotts, I used javascript because I had two different extensions, both manipulating the multi-select menu, and I could not avoid the conflicts

2017-08-02 15:57:39 GMT <douglascrp> then I decided to use javascript to dinamilly add my new menu item in the list

2017-08-02 17:45:11 GMT <hanaa> dears, I need advice on Alfresco community, about workload that it can support, are there guidelines for sizing?

2017-08-02 17:45:42 GMT <hanaa> the size of data is nor huge, it is a cultural heritage archiving project, mainly archiving pictures and drawings

2017-08-02 18:52:17 GMT <jpotts> hanaa: Files are stored by Alfresco on the file system so your file system will need to be large enough to support all of your data plus an additional percentage for full-text indices and working storage.

2017-08-02 18:52:43 GMT <jpotts> hanaa: Your DB will also need to be large enough to store the metadata but that is typically much smaller than the file storage (content store) or indices.

2017-08-02 18:54:25 GMT <jpotts> ~ later tell hanaa: You can find an old sizing guide here: https://community.alfresco.com/docs/DOC-4914-jvm-tuning

2017-08-02 18:54:25 GMT <alfbot> jpotts: The operation succeeded.

2017-08-02 20:32:16 GMT <Ziberius> do you guys know if jpotts alfresco cmis examples work on alfresco 4.0.d?

2017-08-02 20:32:46 GMT <Ziberius> I mean these:https://github.com/jpotts/alfresco-api-java-examples

2017-08-02 20:32:47 GMT <alfbot> Title: GitHub - jpotts/alfresco-api-java-examples: Examples showing how to hit the Alfresco Public API using Java. (at github.com)

2017-08-02 20:33:14 GMT <Ziberius> the description says 4.2 though :-S

2017-08-02 21:17:28 GMT <resplin> The CMIS protocol for managing nodes and folders hasn't significantly changed. But it is likely that the endpoint is different.

2017-08-02 21:25:53 GMT <Ziberius> ok thanx well guess I'll have to test and see
