2017-09-08 07:16:29 GMT *** yregaieg is now known as yreg
2017-09-08 07:16:39 GMT <yreg> Morning everyone!
2017-09-08 09:01:59 GMT <MorganP> Anyone already tried/succeeded to create a link to a Document/Folder that would open in a Windows Explorer window?
2017-09-08 09:02:37 GMT <Tichodroma> sounds like CMIS
2017-09-08 09:02:38 GMT <MorganP> Building the URL wouldn't be hard using AOS but clicking on this link would open it in a Browser since it's a URL
2017-09-08 09:02:52 GMT <Tichodroma> what would be the protocol of this URL?
2017-09-08 09:03:04 GMT <MorganP> Anything that would work
2017-09-08 09:03:13 GMT <Tichodroma> and does you OS have the Windows Explorer registered to handle this protocol?
2017-09-08 09:03:25 GMT <MorganP> I was just thinking that this doesn't exist and it would be cool
2017-09-08 09:06:41 GMT <MorganP> By default all Windows Explorer can handle https but the URLs will not open by default in it since it is more a browser stuff
2017-09-08 09:07:50 GMT <MorganP> So building the URL wouldn't be hard but forcing Windows to open the URL in the file explorer might be trickier
2017-09-08 09:08:01 GMT <MorganP> Or at least I have no clue how to do that
2017-09-08 09:08:22 GMT <MorganP> But it sounds feasible since SharePoint can do that
2017-09-08 09:13:17 GMT <yreg> MorganP, if you create a shortcut on windows to a webdav/ftp location, that might actually work
2017-09-08 09:14:08 GMT <MorganP> Not sure I understand
2017-09-08 09:14:19 GMT <yreg> just remember to either use https for webdav or to tell your system to accept insecure webdav by changing few registries
2017-09-08 09:14:33 GMT <MorganP> I always use HTTPS for everything
2017-09-08 09:14:44 GMT <MorganP> mounting the network location isn't hard
2017-09-08 09:15:08 GMT <MorganP> but how to tell Windows to use this network location in a Windows Explorer and not a browser
2017-09-08 09:21:02 GMT <yreg> if you create a shortcut in a folder with an ftp location it would open by default in explorer (at least last time I checked)
2017-09-08 09:21:13 GMT <yreg> otherwise you can follow this https://stackoverflow.com/questions/42426870/how-to-add-my-protocol-into-default-programs-in-windows-10
2017-09-08 09:21:14 GMT <alfbot> Title: registry - How to add my protocol into default programs in windows 10? - Stack Overflow (at stackoverflow.com)
2017-09-08 09:22:31 GMT <yreg> but following that route can be really tricky
2017-09-08 09:29:12 GMT <MorganP> I will check this default program stuff
2017-09-08 10:49:20 GMT <syed_> Hi, I am using alfresco 5.2d and would like to encrypt my content when it comes into alfresco and should be able to decrypt it when needed. Is there any way I could go with. Pls help.
2017-09-08 10:50:04 GMT <MarkTielemans> You should look into Contentstore types: http://docs.alfresco.com/5.2/concepts/cs-types.html
2017-09-08 10:50:05 GMT <alfbot> Title: Content store types | Alfresco Documentation (at docs.alfresco.com)
2017-09-08 10:50:10 GMT <MarkTielemans> The encrypted contentstore does exactly what you need
2017-09-08 11:05:23 GMT <syed_> In this link address it says that the content once encrypted could not be decrypted and also requires a license for using encryption and decryption of content. Can this be used in community edition without license? need some clarity pls.
2017-09-08 11:05:32 GMT <syed_> http://docs.alfresco.com/5.2/concepts/encrypt-consideration.html
2017-09-08 11:05:34 GMT <MorganP> No
2017-09-08 11:05:34 GMT <alfbot> Title: Issues to consider before using Encrypted content store | Alfresco Documentation (at docs.alfresco.com)
2017-09-08 11:06:09 GMT <MorganP> If you want Documents/Config files to be encrypted at rest, you need the Enterprise license of the Content Services with the add-on Encryption
2017-09-08 11:07:31 GMT <MorganP> A possible workaround would be to use the encryption at the Operating System level directly
2017-09-08 11:07:34 GMT <MorganP> And not Alfresco
2017-09-08 11:07:41 GMT <MorganP> Never tried that
2017-09-08 11:08:08 GMT <syed_> then what do the encryption described http://docs.alfresco.com/5.2/concepts/encrypt-consideration.html does?
2017-09-08 11:08:09 GMT <alfbot> Title: Issues to consider before using Encrypted content store | Alfresco Documentation (at docs.alfresco.com)
2017-09-08 11:12:54 GMT <syed_> @alfbot: I have read the Issues to consider before using Encrypted content store, in the second point it says that the content encrypted cannot be decrypted back. I am a bit confused. pls help
2017-09-08 11:13:35 GMT <syed_> and also what all content it encrypts?
2017-09-08 11:23:00 GMT <yreg> syed_, try out alfresco-simple-content-stores
2017-09-08 11:23:02 GMT <yreg> https://github.com/Acosix/alfresco-simple-content-stores/wiki/Encrypting-Store
2017-09-08 11:23:03 GMT <alfbot> Title: Encrypting Store · Acosix/alfresco-simple-content-stores Wiki · GitHub (at github.com)
2017-09-08 11:26:17 GMT <syed_> yreg: does it require any license or open source
2017-09-08 11:30:01 GMT <syed_> As it is mentioned to enable addon. do we need to add it seperatley or it comes with alfresco
2017-09-08 11:30:02 GMT <syed_> ?
2017-09-08 11:34:02 GMT <AFaust> syed_: No license required (see the GitHub - it states it uses Apache License)
2017-09-08 11:34:28 GMT <AFaust> syed_: Since this is an addon you need to add it separately
2017-09-08 11:37:48 GMT <AFaust> syed_: Some of the issues listed for the Alfresco encryted content store do not apply to the simple-content-stores addon, e.g. it can be used together with other content stores, i.e. compression / routing, and can be used in a multi-tenant scenario (the addon provides routing stores to handle tenants)
2017-09-08 11:39:48 GMT <syed_> AFaust: what is the name of addon for simple content store?
2017-09-08 11:40:21 GMT <AFaust> syed_: It is the one that yreg has linked for you...
2017-09-08 11:44:33 GMT <syed_> AFaust:we need to build it ourself?
2017-09-08 11:45:24 GMT <MorganP> Clone the source and build it
2017-09-08 11:45:36 GMT <MorganP> Most of the add-ons now just provide the sources
2017-09-08 11:45:57 GMT <AFaust> No - it states on the GitHub page that it releases are available from Maven Central (no release yet though) and SNAPSHOTS from Sonatype OSS repository (https://oss.sonatype.org/#nexus-search;gav~de.acosix.alfresco.simplecontentstores~de.acosix.alfresco.simplecontentstores.repo~~~~kw,versionexpand%20)
2017-09-08 11:45:58 GMT <alfbot> Title: Nexus Repository Manager (at oss.sonatype.org)
2017-09-08 11:46:35 GMT <AFaust> MorganP: All addons in the Acosix namespace are designed to be available from Maven Central / Sonatype OSS by default
2017-09-08 11:46:49 GMT <AFaust> It should be common practices, but unfortunately not a lot in the community bother to do that
2017-09-08 11:47:01 GMT <MorganP> Ok I didn't know that
2017-09-08 11:47:56 GMT <AFaust> But of course you are correct with regard to getting the "UP TO DATE" version - then clone + build it locally. The SNAPSHOT deployment is a manual process right now, so I might skip one or two commits...
2017-09-08 11:52:54 GMT <syed_> AFaust: Thank you. I will try to build and test meanwhile.
2017-09-08 12:23:07 GMT <kgastaldo> Hi All - Sorry for the multiple notifications today. I've got a case with Jive to see what's up.
2017-09-08 12:50:56 GMT <yreg> resplin, regarding this : https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/browse/MNT-17527
2017-09-08 12:53:59 GMT <resplin> What about it?
2017-09-08 12:54:30 GMT <yreg> I already implemented it for my customer who is willing to share the code
2017-09-08 12:54:39 GMT <resplin> That's great.
2017-09-08 12:54:53 GMT <yreg> couldn't comment or attach a patch
2017-09-08 12:54:58 GMT <resplin> That's a pain.
2017-09-08 12:55:00 GMT <resplin> sigh
2017-09-08 12:55:13 GMT <yreg> so I though I should share that info here
2017-09-08 12:55:20 GMT <resplin> And because it is Share, it isn't in GitHub yet.
2017-09-08 12:55:36 GMT <resplin> Perhaps the easiest way would be to submit a pull request against the GitHub community mirror?
2017-09-08 12:55:40 GMT <yreg> true
2017-09-08 12:55:42 GMT <resplin> The Share mirror on GitHub?
2017-09-08 12:55:48 GMT <resplin> Sorry it's such a pain.
2017-09-08 12:55:55 GMT <yreg> and speaking of share, happy to see that Aikau is not dead !
2017-09-08 12:56:48 GMT <yreg> resplin, I will try to find a sometime early next week to do it
2017-09-08 12:57:51 GMT <AFaust> "not dead" == "relabeling a fix release as a new release"
2017-09-08 12:58:28 GMT <AFaust> No updates on PRs since February,,,
2017-09-08 12:59:21 GMT <yreg> well, did not notice that and ___dave's tweet sounded very enthusiastic !
2017-09-08 13:00:30 GMT <resplin> The team should restart development over the next few weeks.
2017-09-08 13:00:37 GMT <resplin> Thanks yreg
2017-09-08 13:00:53 GMT <AFaust> I believe ___dave may have been taking a piss
2017-09-08 13:01:14 GMT * AFaust hopes he used that phrase right...
2017-09-08 13:11:22 GMT <resplin> I have a CMIS question that came up during ALF Triage. Can someone tell me if this is a product bug or a bad CMIS query?
2017-09-08 13:11:35 GMT <resplin> https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/browse/ALF-21943
2017-09-08 13:20:46 GMT <AFaust> I believe the query is bad
2017-09-08 13:21:02 GMT <AFaust> The second one is obvious if you just read it aloud
2017-09-08 13:21:23 GMT <AFaust> of course any of the aspects of the node will not be in the specified set, so the nodes match
2017-09-08 13:21:32 GMT <AFaust> the NOT should be moved in front of the ANY in that case
2017-09-08 13:23:03 GMT <AFaust> Though I never use queries on secondary type IDs with CMIS in real life...
2017-09-08 13:41:39 GMT <Tichodroma> What operation could set cm:modified even when the behaviour ContentModel.ASPECT_AUDITABLE is disabled?
2017-09-08 13:42:40 GMT <Tichodroma> I observe this especially with nodes of types derived from cm:content, probably when using a ContentWriter on PROP_CONTENT
2017-09-08 14:14:11 GMT <AFaust> Tichodroma: Any operation that runs in a nested / different transaction from the one where the behaviour is disabled could update that...
2017-09-08 14:14:48 GMT <AFaust> Also, any transaction commit logic could be cause of this when you have used try-finally in your logic to disable/enable auditable...
2017-09-08 14:15:21 GMT <Tichodroma> could there be any other policy involved?
2017-09-08 14:16:21 GMT <Tichodroma> try/finally is not used in this case
2017-09-08 14:21:34 GMT <resplin> AFaust: Thanks for the feedback. I also think it is bad, but wanted a second opinion before pushing the reporter to Jive to get CMIS help.
2017-09-08 14:59:28 GMT <fwu> ppl, im rtying to activate scriptdebugger in log4j, but imget the following error:
2017-09-08 14:59:42 GMT <fwu> org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'scriptDebugger' defined in class path resource [surf-config.xml]: Invocation of init method failed; nested exception is java.lang.NullPointerException
2017-09-08 14:59:58 GMT <fwu> what could this be? No bean defined? Shouldnt it be out of the box?
2017-09-08 15:06:50 GMT <hi-ko> MorganP: just read your question for Explorer link. All current browsers will block this. You need to run a listener on your desktop alfresco may send the request to open the explorer.
2017-09-08 15:13:23 GMT <MorganP> hi-ko: In fact, I'm not talking about links in browser but rather in mails for example
2017-09-08 15:14:22 GMT <MorganP> What I will try when I have some time is defining a new protocol and try to map this to a Windows Explorer app
2017-09-08 15:14:39 GMT <MorganP> Then try to get that to open the converted AOS url
2017-09-08 15:14:49 GMT <MorganP> sounds like fun... what is missing is the time :D
2017-09-08 15:17:59 GMT <hi-ko> We implemented this for our own OS tray app and our message hub which has an alfresco api
2017-09-08 15:19:21 GMT <MorganP> hum interesting
2017-09-08 15:20:03 GMT <hi-ko> MorganP: and we don't use aos to open or close to support any app
