2017-08-08 06:39:02 GMT <twen> bonjour

2017-08-08 06:47:52 GMT <fcorti> Buongiorno

2017-08-08 06:53:36 GMT <yreg> Morning

2017-08-08 07:12:20 GMT <qwebirc97869> good morning

2017-08-08 07:43:15 GMT <qwebirc97869> morning angel

2017-08-08 07:54:10 GMT <qwebirc97869> angelborroy hello

2017-08-08 08:35:26 GMT <qwebirc97869> anyone here ?

2017-08-08 08:47:16 GMT <xai> qwebirc97869: I'm here

2017-08-08 08:57:53 GMT <qwebirc97869> hello angel

2017-08-08 08:57:59 GMT <qwebirc97869> hi xai

2017-08-08 08:59:02 GMT <qwebirc97869> i managed to synch my ldap but i got 2 problems : i can't log with those users / the button new user in alfrescoo administration is gray (so i can't create user)

2017-08-08 08:59:53 GMT <angelborroy> hi

2017-08-08 09:00:11 GMT <angelborroy> if you are using LDAP only, you cannot create local users

2017-08-08 09:00:25 GMT <angelborroy> you have to enable “alfrescoNTLM” in authentication.chain in order to allow that

2017-08-08 09:00:58 GMT <qwebirc97869> oh cool i will add it

2017-08-08 09:01:08 GMT <angelborroy> I cannot understand the second problem

2017-08-08 09:01:18 GMT <angelborroy> ?

2017-08-08 09:01:22 GMT <qwebirc97869> in alfresco administration tool

2017-08-08 09:01:28 GMT <qwebirc97869> when u go to users

2017-08-08 09:01:34 GMT <qwebirc97869> there is a button named new user

2017-08-08 09:01:40 GMT <angelborroy> yes

2017-08-08 09:01:47 GMT <qwebirc97869> it is grayed out

2017-08-08 09:01:50 GMT <qwebirc97869> i can't click it

2017-08-08 09:01:52 GMT <angelborroy> this is because the alfrescoNTLM missing

2017-08-08 09:01:56 GMT <angelborroy> and the other problem?

2017-08-08 09:02:09 GMT <qwebirc97869> the users i have on ldap

2017-08-08 09:02:17 GMT <qwebirc97869> i can't log in with them

2017-08-08 09:02:27 GMT <qwebirc97869> he say the authentication is wrong

2017-08-08 09:02:34 GMT <qwebirc97869> maybe same problem the NTLM

2017-08-08 09:02:41 GMT <qwebirc97869> i am trying to add it and tell you

2017-08-08 09:03:12 GMT <angelborroy> the users in the LDAP should be authentified without including that NTLM subsystem

2017-08-08 09:04:03 GMT <qwebirc97869> then there should be something missing ,

2017-08-08 09:04:53 GMT <qwebirc97869> i added the line authentication.chain=alfinst:alfrescoNtlm,ldap1:ldap

2017-08-08 09:05:04 GMT <qwebirc97869> that is right ,

2017-08-08 09:05:05 GMT <qwebirc97869> ?

2017-08-08 09:09:03 GMT <qwebirc97869> so now i can create a new user and i did and managed to log with it but still can't log with ldap users

2017-08-08 09:10:19 GMT <angelborroy> is right

2017-08-08 09:10:43 GMT <angelborroy> something is wrong with your LDAP authentication configuration

2017-08-08 09:12:15 GMT <qwebirc97869> it shouldn't be though we configured it together last day, but tell me i am doubting something : should the users have the class object account in ldap in order to log with them ?

2017-08-08 09:12:44 GMT <qwebirc97869> because mine are intOrgPerson

2017-08-08 09:12:54 GMT <angelborroy> this is not the problem

2017-08-08 09:13:03 GMT <angelborroy> have you tried to log in outside Alfresco?

2017-08-08 09:13:10 GMT <angelborroy> by using other LDAP client?

2017-08-08 09:13:13 GMT <qwebirc97869> yes on jxplorer it work

2017-08-08 09:13:17 GMT <qwebirc97869> i tried 3 users

2017-08-08 09:13:35 GMT <angelborroy> and all this 3 users have the same DN?

2017-08-08 09:14:07 GMT <qwebirc97869> yes intOrgPerson

2017-08-08 09:14:18 GMT <qwebirc97869> ah and yes i have another thing maybe it's related

2017-08-08 09:14:41 GMT <qwebirc97869> in the repository i have a user called jdoe but it doesn't exist in admin tool users

2017-08-08 09:20:05 GMT <qwebirc97869> nevermind about the jdoe problem i fixed it ( just missing a display name )

2017-08-08 10:06:50 GMT <xai> Is there any collections of Scheduled Actions? I need examples to learn how to write them.

2017-08-08 10:06:56 GMT <xai> * collection

2017-08-08 10:10:31 GMT <xai> angelborroy: Thanks. A little, but better than nothing)

2017-08-08 10:10:56 GMT <angelborroy> xai what else do you need?

2017-08-08 10:11:15 GMT <angelborroy> it’s just a crontab task with a Spring declaration

2017-08-08 10:11:48 GMT <xai> angelborroy: The final aim is to make a job that sends email if current date is the same as in a apsect field.

2017-08-08 10:16:07 GMT <angelborroy> xai you’ll need NodeService & Email Action

2017-08-08 10:16:27 GMT <angelborroy> xai it looks you can manage to dev that with the sample provided

2017-08-08 10:17:51 GMT <qwebirc97869> angel any idea about the login issue please ? i have been looking for this and i tried to edit some properties but doesn't work

2017-08-08 10:18:23 GMT <qwebirc97869> i also tried to enable syncwhenmissingpeoplelogin

2017-08-08 10:18:36 GMT <qwebirc97869> doesn't work too

2017-08-08 10:35:42 GMT <angelborroy> it’s just you are not setting the right values

2017-08-08 10:36:10 GMT <angelborroy> start only with authentication

2017-08-08 10:36:19 GMT <angelborroy> and exclude all the other noise from your configuration

2017-08-08 16:11:33 GMT <fwu> ppl, what is the best practice to control decimal places and digit grouping symbol when entering values in a workflow field?

2017-08-08 18:46:42 GMT <fwu> back

2017-08-08 21:35:34 GMT <Ziberius> hello

2017-08-08 21:35:52 GMT <Ziberius> I'm using this guide to create a directory in alfresco: http://ecmarchitect.com/images/articles/cmis/cmis-article.pdf

2017-08-08 21:36:22 GMT <Ziberius> from curl i have no problems but do you have any idea how to authenticate from java? I'm using apache http client to execute the post

2017-08-08 21:36:43 GMT <Ziberius> usually i add the ticket id but that's not working not even from curl

2017-08-08 21:37:07 GMT <Ziberius> example this throws 401 error with authentication nedded: curl -X POST "" -H "Content-Type:application/atom+xml" -d @/root/crear.xml

2017-08-08 21:38:02 GMT <Ziberius> this works when I authenticate with curl -u option: curl -X POST -uadmin:admin "" -H "Content-Type:application/atom+xml" -d @/root/crear.xml

2017-08-08 21:38:08 GMT <Ziberius> any ideas are welcome thanx

2017-08-08 21:43:57 GMT <Ziberius> seems I answered myself....it was supposed to be alf_ticket=TICKET..... not ticket=TICKET...
