2017-08-07 07:57:12 GMT <qwebirc90360> ldap1:ldap

2017-08-07 07:57:30 GMT <angelborroy> so if you have no “admin” user in ldap, you cannot login with "admin"

2017-08-07 07:57:43 GMT <angelborroy> do you want to log in with your previous “admin” credentials?

2017-08-07 07:57:59 GMT <qwebirc90360> i have admin in ldap that's the issue and i have the same pass

2017-08-07 07:58:16 GMT <qwebirc90360> and i use jxplorer for ldap and i tried to login and it works

2017-08-07 07:58:45 GMT <angelborroy> try to include ldap.authentication.defaultAdministratorUserNames=admin in your alfresco-global.properties

2017-08-07 07:59:27 GMT <angelborroy> every LDAP user in this list will be included in ALFRESCO_ADMINISTRATORS group

2017-08-07 08:00:20 GMT <qwebirc90360> ok i am restarting alfresco

2017-08-07 08:02:42 GMT <DarkStar1> Good morning all

2017-08-07 08:02:52 GMT <qwebirc90360> good morning

2017-08-07 08:03:23 GMT <qwebirc90360> @ angelboy still the same problem

2017-08-07 08:03:47 GMT <qwebirc90360> is there any chance that its not synched yet ??

2017-08-07 08:04:03 GMT <angelborroy> propablye is your ldap.authentication.userNameFormat

2017-08-07 08:04:44 GMT <qwebirc90360> i beleieve i didn't change that cause i don't know where it is

2017-08-07 08:05:13 GMT <angelborroy> which are your DN for users in the LDAP?

2017-08-07 08:05:41 GMT <qwebirc90360> admin

2017-08-07 08:06:25 GMT <angelborroy> your DN is something like uid=admin,ou=People,dc=company,dc=com

2017-08-07 08:06:37 GMT <qwebirc90360> cn=admin,dc=alfresco,dc=test

2017-08-07 08:07:26 GMT <angelborroy> ldap.authentication.userNameFormat=cn=%s,dc=alfresco,dc=test

2017-08-07 08:07:42 GMT <qwebirc90360> i add this line to global properties ,

2017-08-07 08:07:46 GMT <qwebirc90360> ?

2017-08-07 08:07:48 GMT <angelborroy> right

2017-08-07 08:08:29 GMT <qwebirc90360> cn=%s not admin right ,

2017-08-07 08:08:30 GMT <qwebirc90360> ?

2017-08-07 08:09:18 GMT <qwebirc90360> restarting alfresco

2017-08-07 08:09:28 GMT <angelborroy> %s is for your user name

2017-08-07 08:09:40 GMT <angelborroy> as you’ll have different names in that place

2017-08-07 08:10:09 GMT <qwebirc90360> allright i added it and just restarted alfresco

2017-08-07 08:10:55 GMT <angelborroy> did you included also ldap.authentication.java.naming.provider.url

2017-08-07 08:10:56 GMT <angelborroy> ?

2017-08-07 08:11:00 GMT <angelborroy> with your ldap URL

2017-08-07 08:11:07 GMT <qwebirc90360> hmm sec i check

2017-08-07 08:11:24 GMT <qwebirc90360> no i dont have that i will add

2017-08-07 08:12:23 GMT <angelborroy> we are going to publish this in the next weeks: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0mgi5qdxu9f8yzb/alfresco-community-ldap-angel-borroy.flv?dl=0

2017-08-07 08:12:35 GMT <qwebirc90360> well that i added in ldap.authentication not in global.properties

2017-08-07 08:12:44 GMT <angelborroy> qwebirc90360 probably it will help you to understand what to configure

2017-08-07 08:13:07 GMT <angelborroy> you can write all your LDAP configuration in alfresco-global.properties

2017-08-07 08:13:39 GMT <qwebirc90360> aha i see so i remove the other ldap.authentication file and i copy all to the properties ,

2017-08-07 08:13:40 GMT <qwebirc90360> ?

2017-08-07 08:13:59 GMT <angelborroy> yep

2017-08-07 08:14:21 GMT <angelborroy> when only one LDAP is configured, it’s enough

2017-08-07 08:14:41 GMT <qwebirc90360> Ok i will delete the file and copy its content to the global.properties a moment please :)

2017-08-07 08:15:10 GMT <angelborroy> qwebirc90360 which alfresco version are you using?

2017-08-07 08:15:51 GMT <qwebirc90360> 5

2017-08-07 08:16:01 GMT <qwebirc90360> alfresco-5.0.d

2017-08-07 08:16:11 GMT <angelborroy> ok

2017-08-07 08:18:06 GMT <qwebirc90360> ### AUTHENTICATION ### authentication.chain=ldap1:ldap synchronization.synchronizeChangesOnly=false synchronization.syncWhenMissingPeopleLogIn=true synchronization.syncOnStartup=true ldap.authentication.active=true ldap.authentication.allowGuestLogin=true ldap.authentication.userNameFormat=cn=%s,dc=alfresco,dc=test ldap.authentication.java.naming.factory.initial=com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapCtxFactory ldap.authentication.java.namin

2017-08-07 08:18:27 GMT <qwebirc90360> ldap.synchronization.java.naming.security.principal=cn\=admin,dc\=alfresco,dc\=test ldap.synchronization.java.naming.security.credentials=secret ldap.synchronization.queryBatchSize=0 ldap.synchronization.attributeBatchSize=0 ldap.synchronization.groupQuery=(objectclass\=groupOfUniqueNames) ldap.synchronization.groupDifferentialQuery=(&(objectclass\=groupOfUniqueNames)(!(modifyTimestamp<\={0}))) ldap.synchronization.personQuer

2017-08-07 08:18:57 GMT <qwebirc90360> ldap.synchronization.defaultHomeFolderProvider=largeHomeFolderProvider ldap.synchronization.groupIdAttributeName=cn ldap.synchronization.groupDisplayNameAttributeName=description ldap.synchronization.groupType=groupOfUniqueNames ldap.synchronization.personType=inetOrgPerson ldap.synchronization.groupMemberAttributeName=uniqueMember ldap.synchronization.enableProgressEstimation=true ldap.authentication.java.naming.read.timeout

2017-08-07 08:19:09 GMT <qwebirc90360> so now this is what i got in my global properties

2017-08-07 08:19:14 GMT <qwebirc90360> and i deleted the other file

2017-08-07 08:29:00 GMT <xai> How to fix the base url? For example: "Alfresco Share" points to "" -- how to fix it?

2017-08-07 08:29:31 GMT <qwebirc90360> @angel so now i managed to log in but the datas i had on ldap aren't there

2017-08-07 08:32:49 GMT <angelborroy> qwebirc90360 so authentication is right but you have to work on your synchronization values

2017-08-07 08:33:14 GMT <angelborroy> qwebirc90360 probably you can perform queries on an external tool

2017-08-07 08:33:27 GMT <angelborroy> xai which means “fix”?

2017-08-07 08:33:45 GMT <xai> angelborroy: It should be https://mydomain/share

2017-08-07 08:34:24 GMT <angelborroy> xai I use Apache HTTPd or NGINX for that

2017-08-07 08:34:36 GMT <xai> I use nginx

2017-08-07 08:34:44 GMT <angelborroy> xai http://beecon.buzz/2016/assets/data/files/20160125025/BeeCon2016_20160125025_Reverse-Proxy.pdf

2017-08-07 08:34:53 GMT <angelborroy> it includes a working sample at github

2017-08-07 08:34:53 GMT <xai> It already works as "https://mydomain", but link to share points to localhost:8080

2017-08-07 08:35:10 GMT <qwebirc90360> angelborry what you mean by perform queries on an external tool ?

2017-08-07 08:35:39 GMT <xai> angelborroy: Thanks for the PDF

2017-08-07 08:35:48 GMT <angelborroy> qwebirc90360 just watch the video I gave you and let me know if it helps

2017-08-07 08:37:01 GMT <qwebirc90360> allright checking it out thanks :)

2017-08-07 08:40:04 GMT <AFaust> angelborroy: FYI - https://github.com/Acosix/alfresco-audit/commit/9a0419ff23b2a8ae40c70841cb3a406bf4085b08

2017-08-07 08:40:06 GMT <alfbot> Title: Add incremental cleanup of alf_prop_* tables · Acosix/alfresco-audit@9a0419f · GitHub (at github.com)

2017-08-07 08:40:37 GMT <angelborroy> you’re great, AFaust, thanks a ton!

2017-08-07 08:41:16 GMT <AFaust> So far tested on PostgreSQL (my tests after migrating from the customer project into the Open Source one) and Oracle (customer environment)

2017-08-07 08:41:35 GMT <angelborroy> PostgreSQL on my side

2017-08-07 08:41:41 GMT <AFaust> Will run test with MS SQL (a different customer) in the very near-future

2017-08-07 08:41:59 GMT <angelborroy> do you feel comfortable if I use it with a 243 M records alf_node_properties table?

2017-08-07 08:42:14 GMT <AFaust> Note: You must still clear the audit entries via the Audit APIs first before the cleanup can work

2017-08-07 08:42:15 GMT <angelborroy> comfortable > confident

2017-08-07 08:42:43 GMT <AFaust> That cleanup is unrelated to the alf_node_properties table - it affects the alf_prop_* tables

2017-08-07 08:43:03 GMT <angelborroy> alf_prop_serializable is also included, right?

2017-08-07 08:43:04 GMT <AFaust> Or did you mean you have 243 M entries in the alf_prop_values table (as a size indicator)?

2017-08-07 08:43:07 GMT <AFaust> Yes

2017-08-07 08:43:09 GMT <angelborroy> ah, ok

2017-08-07 08:43:20 GMT <angelborroy> that one is the problematic

2017-08-07 08:43:28 GMT <angelborroy> in my case

2017-08-07 08:43:28 GMT <AFaust> alf_prop_*_value, alf_prop_value and alf_prop_root are the affected tables

2017-08-07 08:45:10 GMT <AFaust> I feel very comfortable running it against 243 M (or more) records of data. In each run it will only ever check a sub-set of the total data (configurable) and do so in smaller batches to avoid expensive table scans

2017-08-07 08:45:52 GMT <angelborroy> ok, if I’m allowed by my customer, I’ll tell you how it goes

2017-08-07 08:45:57 GMT <angelborroy> thanks again

2017-08-07 08:46:00 GMT <AFaust> At the cuistomer where I originally implemented this, we had - I believe - about 4000 M alf_prop_string_value entries (accumulated over 4 years)

2017-08-07 08:46:23 GMT <AFaust> As always, best to test in test environment first... ;)

2017-08-07 08:46:38 GMT <angelborroy> of course

2017-08-07 08:46:49 GMT <angelborroy> They have TEST and PRE before PROD

2017-08-07 08:48:50 GMT <AFaust> Also: Bear in mind that this and the alfresco-utility module (a dependency) have features enabled by default, which you might want to check if you want to keep them enabled... E.g. alfresco-audit has an audit application that records user authentications (also via NTLM/Kerberos SSO) to build an "active users" data collection

2017-08-07 08:49:46 GMT <AFaust> This has been requested by that MS SQL customer for the purpose of determining how many user licenses they really need from Alfresco

2017-08-07 08:49:58 GMT <xai> angelborroy: Doesn't help. Link "Share" is still points to "", while other links are correct (for example: https://mydomain/alfresco/s/admin).

2017-08-07 08:50:05 GMT <AFaust> And to see which users could be deauthorised...

2017-08-07 08:50:33 GMT <angelborroy> xai include your domain name at alfresco-global.properties

2017-08-07 08:50:41 GMT <xai> angelborroy: already

2017-08-07 08:50:59 GMT <xai> Oop, sorry

2017-08-07 08:51:09 GMT <angelborroy> xai share.host and alfresco.host

2017-08-07 08:51:54 GMT <angelborroy> AFaust I’ll study the code before compulsive “click&running” ;-)

2017-08-07 08:52:20 GMT <qwebirc57466> Hi guys is there any way that I can use https://dev.alfresco.com/resource/docs/aikau-jsdoc/ContainerPicker.html to pick only one container (folder) ?

2017-08-07 08:59:08 GMT <angelborroy> xai glad to help ;-)

2017-08-07 08:59:35 GMT <xai> Well, questions are quite stupid from me. I'd tired to answer such questions on your place :)

2017-08-07 09:00:12 GMT <angelborroy> xai no problem, I have also stupid question from me to myself everyday :D

2017-08-07 09:21:43 GMT <angelborroy> ?

2017-08-07 09:22:37 GMT <qwebirc90360> so usersearch base is ou=peoples,dc=alfresco,dc=test

2017-08-07 09:23:00 GMT <angelborroy> “peoples” is right?

2017-08-07 09:23:04 GMT <angelborroy> or is “people”

2017-08-07 09:23:12 GMT <qwebirc90360> person query is objectclass\=inetOrgPerson

2017-08-07 09:23:17 GMT <qwebirc90360> it is peoples in jxplorer

2017-08-07 09:23:22 GMT <angelborroy> ok

2017-08-07 09:23:37 GMT <angelborroy> and your object class for person is “inetOrgPerson"?

2017-08-07 09:30:52 GMT <angelborroy> try to remove properties from your configuration

2017-08-07 09:31:15 GMT <angelborroy> probably some value is conflicting your base ones

2017-08-07 09:47:32 GMT <xai> angelborroy: If I have a public Alfresco instance, should I do anything to protect it?

2017-08-07 09:47:56 GMT <qwebirc90360> @ angel i found 3 users which i created having inetOrgPerson

2017-08-07 09:48:02 GMT <xai> I mean, forbid traffic to some ports, change passwords or whatever?

2017-08-07 09:48:29 GMT <angelborroy> xai http://docs.alfresco.com/community/tasks/configure-ssl-prod.html

2017-08-07 09:48:30 GMT <alfbot> Title: Configuring SSL for a production environment | Alfresco Documentation (at docs.alfresco.com)

2017-08-07 09:48:40 GMT <xai> SSL is configured

2017-08-07 09:48:56 GMT <xai> A, ok, there's a lot of more stuff

2017-08-07 09:48:58 GMT <xai> thanks

2017-08-07 09:49:12 GMT <angelborroy> qwebirc90360 so you are executing the same query in Alfresco and users should be synchronized

2017-08-07 09:49:25 GMT <angelborroy> qwebirc90360 can you start with a clean installation?

2017-08-07 09:49:38 GMT <angelborroy> probably something has messed up your repository

2017-08-07 09:50:06 GMT <qwebirc90360> hmm ok i delete all ,

2017-08-07 09:50:06 GMT <qwebirc90360> ?

2017-08-07 09:50:17 GMT <angelborroy> re-install should be better

2017-08-07 09:50:23 GMT <angelborroy> or remove alf_data and drop datatase

2017-08-07 09:50:29 GMT <angelborroy> whatever is faster

2017-08-07 09:50:45 GMT <qwebirc90360> i will re install alfresco

2017-08-07 09:53:04 GMT <qwebirc90360> i think i have to delete alfresco before installing

2017-08-07 09:53:18 GMT <angelborroy> are you using Windows, Mac or Linux?

2017-08-07 09:53:32 GMT <qwebirc90360> linux

2017-08-07 09:53:54 GMT <qwebirc90360> centos 6 to be precize

2017-08-07 09:53:57 GMT <angelborroy> it’s a TEST environment, right?

2017-08-07 09:54:07 GMT <qwebirc90360> yes

2017-08-07 09:54:31 GMT <angelborroy> so you can keep your alfresco-global.properties and remove the other

2017-08-07 09:54:53 GMT <qwebirc90360> yes i can make a copy of properties

2017-08-07 09:58:38 GMT *** angelborroy_ is now known as angelborroy

2017-08-07 10:02:38 GMT <qwebirc90360> still uninstalling

2017-08-07 10:07:14 GMT <fwu> hi all!

2017-08-07 10:07:27 GMT <qwebirc90360> hello

2017-08-07 10:23:19 GMT <qwebirc90360> @ angel still here ?

2017-08-07 10:42:15 GMT <xai> Damn angelborroy left :(

2017-08-07 10:42:37 GMT <xai> How to reset admin password in 5.2?

2017-08-07 10:42:51 GMT <xai> http://docs.alfresco.com/5.2/concepts/admin-password.html -- I have no "hashIndicator" stored in DB

2017-08-07 10:42:53 GMT <alfbot> Title: Admin password in default authentication | Alfresco Documentation (at docs.alfresco.com)

2017-08-07 10:43:27 GMT <xai> Reseting by MD4 doesn't help.

2017-08-07 10:45:10 GMT <xai> Changing in alfresco-global.properties of alfresco_user_store.adminusername and alfresco_user_store.adminpassword doesn't help either

2017-08-07 10:46:15 GMT <qwebirc60594> hello again

2017-08-07 10:46:21 GMT <qwebirc60594> angel you are here ,

2017-08-07 10:46:22 GMT <qwebirc60594> ?

2017-08-07 10:46:29 GMT <xai> He left :(

2017-08-07 10:47:11 GMT <xai> qwebirc60594: How did you reset admin password?

2017-08-07 10:52:13 GMT <qwebirc60594> what you mean

2017-08-07 10:52:28 GMT <qwebirc60594> in the alfresco ?

2017-08-07 10:52:34 GMT <xai> Yep.

2017-08-07 10:52:53 GMT <xai> I tried this http://docs.alfresco.com/5.2/concepts/admin-password.html but nothing helps here.

2017-08-07 10:52:55 GMT <alfbot> Title: Admin password in default authentication | Alfresco Documentation (at docs.alfresco.com)

2017-08-07 10:53:49 GMT <fwu> xai try looking to this: http://www.giuseppeurso.eu/en/alfresco-tips-and-tricks-1-reset-the-admin-password/

2017-08-07 10:56:59 GMT <xai> fwu: Thanks, helped

2017-08-07 10:57:07 GMT <xai> It was required to recode to utf-16le

2017-08-07 10:57:17 GMT <xai> Somebody should add it to the official documentation :)

2017-08-07 10:57:34 GMT <xai> echo -n password | iconv -t utf-16le | rhash --md4 -

2017-08-07 11:04:15 GMT <xai> But this password doesn't work in "/share/"

2017-08-07 11:07:01 GMT <Loftux> I have client where all users/groups gets removed when AD Sync fails. It can be restored by triggering a sync again. Anything that can be done to prevent this from happening?

2017-08-07 11:09:58 GMT <mrks_js> Loftux: is synchronization.allowDeletions enabled?

2017-08-07 11:10:57 GMT <Loftux> Probably. I was just about to check settings since I asked a question, but now their VPN is down…

2017-08-07 11:16:14 GMT <fwu> ppl, does anyone have alfresco 5.2 installed? Can you tell me the version of bouncy castle that comes with 5.2? (files: bcprov-jdk* and bcmail-jdk*).

2017-08-07 11:21:41 GMT <mrks_js> alfresco/tomcat/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/lib/bcprov-jdk15-1.46.jar

2017-08-07 11:21:41 GMT <mrks_js> alfresco/tomcat/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/lib/bcmail-jdk15-1.45.jar

2017-08-07 11:25:47 GMT <fwu> mrks_js, thank you!

2017-08-07 11:26:04 GMT <fwu> it is strange they are not the same version

2017-08-07 12:03:50 GMT <qwebirc60594> anyone can help please

2017-08-07 12:07:11 GMT <qwebirc60594> can anyone help me please

2017-08-07 12:12:50 GMT <AFaust> OMFG - Why in all of the world does the Alfresco "Trait Extension" mechanism only support a single extender per extension point? Why did it have to be a custom solution instead of doing some proper AOP?

2017-08-07 12:14:15 GMT <xai> Is there a way to create document (for example, xls-file), set an expiration date and get a reminder (by email) when document will expire?

2017-08-07 12:14:41 GMT <AFaust> And since most services already come with an extension for Smart Folders (if enabled) you risk breaking functionality when adding your own extenders, since the last one initialised via Spring typically wins over any previous ones (for the same service)

2017-08-07 12:16:47 GMT <AFaust> I'm just glad I know the developer listed as @author neither in person nor via Twitter...

2017-08-07 12:24:42 GMT <qwebirc60594> afaust hello

2017-08-07 12:27:04 GMT <AFaust> Hi - I see that xai and angelborroy responded to your earlier question(s) - So I don't know what I could help you with that they have not yet tried to do...

2017-08-07 12:32:01 GMT <qwebirc60594> those problems are already fixed

2017-08-07 12:32:09 GMT <qwebirc60594> but i got a new one now

2017-08-07 12:32:29 GMT <qwebirc60594> in alfresco when i go to users and want to create a new user i can't because the button is grayed out

2017-08-07 12:32:39 GMT <qwebirc60594> i googled this issue but nothing about it

2017-08-07 12:35:27 GMT <AFaust> Is alfrescNtlm included in your authentication chain? If not, that is the reason

2017-08-07 12:35:43 GMT <AFaust> Because if you don't use alfrescoNtlm then there is no authentication system in which to create a new user

2017-08-07 12:41:43 GMT <xai> https://dpaste.de/8uXe/raw -- "Request failed 404 /solr4/alfresco/alfresco…" -- how to diagnose this?

2017-08-07 12:50:15 GMT <xai> What means "java.lang.IllegalStateException: Connection factory has been shutdown" in solr.log?

2017-08-07 13:02:16 GMT <xai> Damn, cannot find any solution of solr problem =\

2017-08-07 13:22:26 GMT <xai> The problem solved by: rsync -avH /opt/alfresco-community/tomcat/conf/Catalina/{localhost,mydomain}/

2017-08-07 17:38:13 GMT <xai> <<We couldn't deactivate model ' Model '{xaiTest}xaiTest' is in use and cannot be deleted or deactivated.'.>> while it's not used actually (the only document that I assigned this model was deleted). What should I do in this case?

2017-08-07 17:38:37 GMT <douglascrp> xai, have you cleaned the trashcan?

2017-08-07 17:38:51 GMT <douglascrp> if there is still any document there of that type, then you are still using the model

2017-08-07 17:38:59 GMT <douglascrp> usually that does the trick

2017-08-07 17:40:58 GMT <xai> douglascrp: Thank you. I didn't know that there exists a trashcan. It helped.

2017-08-07 19:18:38 GMT <xai> Is there a way to delete a task?
