2017-09-25 08:06:33 GMT <DarkStar1> Morning everyone
2017-09-25 08:38:17 GMT <yreg> Morning
2017-09-25 10:14:08 GMT *** angelborroy_ is now known as angelborroy
2017-09-25 12:46:07 GMT <mtsiak> I have noticed that when uploading a new version in a document, the NodeServicePolicies.OnCreateNodePolicy is called.
2017-09-25 12:47:10 GMT <syed_> Hi, I am using alfresco 5.2d and uploading file from the custom UI. It is working fine untill the file size is small but when I am trying to upload large file it is restricting. Where to increase the upload file limit
2017-09-25 12:47:26 GMT <mtsiak> Is there any way to know what behaviours could be called?
2017-09-25 12:48:31 GMT <yreg> mtsiak, well... soon there will be a way, a colleague of mine worked on that during the hackathon
2017-09-25 12:48:36 GMT <yreg> as part of care4alf
2017-09-25 12:48:55 GMT <yreg> but I am not sure how far he did go on that one !

2017-09-25 12:50:32 GMT <angelborroy> syed_ by default, you should be able to upload any size of files
2017-09-25 12:51:27 GMT <yreg> @angelborroy, I am not sure, I do not think content would be streamed to filestore, so your heap needs to be able to manage the file size ;-)
2017-09-25 12:52:00 GMT <angelborroy> yreg content is streamed to the content store, for sure
2017-09-25 12:52:11 GMT <mtsiak> yreg, ok thanks.
2017-09-25 12:52:28 GMT <angelborroy> yreg I’ve uploaded 60 GB files to Alfresco
2017-09-25 12:52:52 GMT <angelborroy> mtsiak every version has a node itself
2017-09-25 12:53:08 GMT <angelborroy> mtsiak this is why a new node is created when you version a node
2017-09-25 12:53:31 GMT <yreg> angelborroy, interesting
2017-09-25 12:55:36 GMT <mtsiak> angelborroy, every document is a node. is that true?
2017-09-25 12:55:53 GMT <angelborroy> mtsiak is (at least) a node, yes
2017-09-25 12:56:09 GMT <yreg> mtsiak, true, different versions of the same document are all different nodes
2017-09-25 12:56:15 GMT <syed_> I have tried uploading it directly through Alfresco's UI and it works just fine. I have checked the Module dynamic configuration topic and the max size limit is set to '0'
2017-09-25 12:57:13 GMT <yreg> I think when you upload a new version, the old node is transferred to the version store, then a new document is created linking to that version from the old store
2017-09-25 12:57:52 GMT <angelborroy> yreg and a new node is created in versionStore to link the current version
2017-09-25 13:00:26 GMT <mtsiak> angelborroy, yreg so one document node A has a list of version documents V1 V2 ,.. nodes (the actual documents)
2017-09-25 13:00:45 GMT <angelborroy> yep
2017-09-25 13:01:03 GMT <angelborroy> and also children nodes for thumbnail and other for PDF render
2017-09-25 13:01:36 GMT <mtsiak> and the NodeServicePolicies.OnCreateNodePolicy ContentModel.TYPE_CONTENT is called only for A ?
2017-09-25 13:03:07 GMT <mtsiak> cause i think that it is called when V1 V2 are created as well.
2017-09-25 13:25:08 GMT <angelborroy> mtsiak look at stores overview figure http://docs.alfresco.com/community/concepts/dev-repository-concepts.html
2017-09-25 13:25:09 GMT <alfbot> Title: Repository concepts | Alfresco Documentation (at docs.alfresco.com)
2017-09-25 13:25:26 GMT <angelborroy> For a node in Version 2.0 you have 3 different nodes
2017-09-25 13:25:34 GMT <angelborroy> 1 in Working Store
2017-09-25 13:25:37 GMT <angelborroy> 2 in Version Store
2017-09-25 13:25:56 GMT <angelborroy> Both Working Store and 2.0 Version Store are sharing the same content
2017-09-25 13:54:11 GMT <douglascrp> morning guys
2017-09-25 13:54:20 GMT <douglascrp> qq question on fts search
2017-09-25 13:54:44 GMT <douglascrp> has anyone had experience using the -ASPECT:"ns:aspect" syntax
2017-09-25 13:54:45 GMT <douglascrp> ?
2017-09-25 13:55:03 GMT <douglascrp> I am trying to use it, but the performance is really bad
2017-09-25 13:55:06 GMT <yreg> douglascrp, hey dude
2017-09-25 13:55:15 GMT <yreg> I have used it before
2017-09-25 13:55:18 GMT <douglascrp> do you know about any index I could be creating to help improve this?
2017-09-25 13:55:33 GMT <yreg> you mean TMQ ?
2017-09-25 13:55:38 GMT <douglascrp> my repo has 1,3 million documents, and I need to apply a new custom aspect in all the existing nodes
2017-09-25 13:55:57 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, it seems it is using the database, as I can see the long running query there
2017-09-25 13:56:22 GMT <douglascrp> it takes many minutes to finish, and the cpu use is 100% all the time
2017-09-25 13:56:25 GMT <yreg> do you want it to go through solr instead ?
2017-09-25 13:56:50 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, or maybe try to make the db better by creating an index or so
2017-09-25 13:57:10 GMT <yreg> douglascrp, DB is already equipped with the needed indice, you might want to do some DB maintainance to optimize
2017-09-25 13:57:21 GMT <angelborroy> douglascrp IMO you should move to SOLR
2017-09-25 13:57:33 GMT <yreg> angelborroy, +1
2017-09-25 13:58:06 GMT <douglascrp> the db is already optimized, as I executed vacuum and reindex on it
2017-09-25 13:58:43 GMT <angelborroy> douglascrp probably you are trying a FULL at ALF_NODE_PROPERTIES
2017-09-25 13:58:47 GMT <yreg> douglascrp, You are unlikely to get better DB performance then, switch to solr
2017-09-25 13:59:19 GMT <yreg> douglascrp, any thing that is not supported by FTS should do
2017-09-25 13:59:27 GMT <yreg> cm:name:* for instance
2017-09-25 13:59:36 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, ah, good
2017-09-25 13:59:41 GMT <douglascrp> let me try
2017-09-25 14:00:58 GMT <yreg> s/FTS/TMQ/
2017-09-25 14:03:03 GMT <douglascrp> waaaaaaay faster now
2017-09-25 14:03:44 GMT <douglascrp> now I can even use the Run like crazy parameter from js-console
2017-09-25 14:03:47 GMT <douglascrp> tks guys
2017-09-25 14:04:06 GMT <yreg> nooo
2017-09-25 14:04:13 GMT <douglascrp> :D
2017-09-25 14:04:15 GMT <yreg> douglascrp, no, do not do it
2017-09-25 14:04:20 GMT <douglascrp> with a small result set
2017-09-25 14:04:26 GMT <yreg> no
2017-09-25 14:04:30 GMT <douglascrp> and using at least the 10 seconds parameter
2017-09-25 14:04:33 GMT <douglascrp> why not?
2017-09-25 14:04:37 GMT <yreg> because solr does not get updated in time
2017-09-25 14:04:41 GMT <douglascrp> yes, I know
2017-09-25 14:04:48 GMT <douglascrp> I am not using it without considering that
2017-09-25 14:04:51 GMT <yreg> and you would be doing the same update again and again on the same set
2017-09-25 14:04:59 GMT <douglascrp> once I apply the aspect, it is going to be returned again
2017-09-25 14:05:26 GMT <douglascrp> until solr reindex it
2017-09-25 14:05:49 GMT <yreg> That's a very bad approach IMHO
2017-09-25 14:05:58 GMT <yreg> do you have care4alf ?
2017-09-25 14:05:58 GMT <douglascrp> yes, I know
2017-09-25 14:06:03 GMT <douglascrp> no, I don't
2017-09-25 14:06:06 GMT <yreg> you can use the bulk worker ther
2017-09-25 14:06:08 GMT <douglascrp> I know the project, but I never tried it
2017-09-25 14:06:16 GMT <douglascrp> let me check
2017-09-25 14:06:18 GMT <yreg> to execute a JS script
2017-09-25 14:06:29 GMT <yreg> on a resultset of a solr search
2017-09-25 14:06:42 GMT <yreg> then you are sure the code is run only once per node
2017-09-25 14:06:58 GMT <douglascrp> yes, that is a good idea
2017-09-25 14:07:03 GMT <yreg> and you are sure you are only handling N nodes per transaction
2017-09-25 14:07:35 GMT <yreg> you would be even sure that you are not lagging behind a lot with solr
2017-09-25 14:08:09 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, please, give me the link for the project
2017-09-25 14:08:24 GMT <douglascrp> I can only find the maven repositories using google
2017-09-25 14:09:18 GMT <douglascrp> ok, I found it
2017-09-25 14:12:30 GMT <yreg> douglascrp, you should be using latest version
2017-09-25 14:12:55 GMT <yreg> from code, the version on maven central is a bit outdated in regards to bulk processor
2017-09-25 14:13:07 GMT <yreg> (a bug that got solved a month or so ago)
2017-09-25 14:13:27 GMT <yreg> remember that you should be using dynamic extensions as well
2017-09-25 14:13:36 GMT <douglascrp> yes, but I was not able to find the project
2017-09-25 14:13:40 GMT <yreg> 1.4.2+ should be fine
2017-09-25 14:13:54 GMT <yreg> I use 1.6.0 most of the time
2017-09-25 14:14:08 GMT <yreg> 1.5.x might have some broken parts
2017-09-25 14:14:13 GMT <douglascrp> so I would have to test it before, as this is a project already in production
2017-09-25 14:14:18 GMT <douglascrp> I will take a look at it
2017-09-25 14:14:22 GMT <douglascrp> tks for the tip
2017-09-25 14:14:29 GMT <yreg> 1.6.0 DE is safe to use
2017-09-25 14:14:38 GMT <yreg> 1.4.2 as well
2017-09-25 14:16:07 GMT <yreg> 1.6.1 is also safe to use on your repo, but you should not depend on it while developing DE bundles, as it would force add broken dependencies
2017-09-25 14:16:23 GMT <yreg> (wrong group id)
2017-09-25 14:17:23 GMT <yreg> latest care4alf on maven central has a small bug related yo search provider for the bulk : Last itm of a page is also queried for next page and then processed twice
2017-09-25 14:17:46 GMT <yreg> I should publish a new version of care4alf by end of this week
2017-09-25 14:17:57 GMT <yreg> (should have done that during the hackathon actually)
2017-09-25 14:18:51 GMT <douglascrp> I am going to watch the beecon presentation right now
2017-09-25 14:22:34 GMT <yreg> douglascrp, sent you detailed instructions with latest binaries by email
2017-09-25 14:24:20 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, yeah, I've just saw it here
2017-09-25 14:24:23 GMT <douglascrp> thank you
2017-09-25 14:30:44 GMT <yreg> urw
2017-09-25 14:37:26 GMT <douglascrp> urw? :D
2017-09-25 14:37:37 GMT <douglascrp> I didn't know care4alf had an UI
2017-09-25 14:41:01 GMT <yreg> u= you, r= are, w=welcome
2017-09-25 14:41:17 GMT <douglascrp> ahhh... as simple as that :D
2017-09-25 15:12:00 GMT *** angelborroy_ is now known as angelborroy
2017-09-25 15:13:36 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, I am installing it right now on the dev server
2017-09-25 15:13:39 GMT <douglascrp> let's see how it goes
2017-09-25 15:13:45 GMT <douglascrp> the presentation is interesting
2017-09-25 15:14:14 GMT <yreg> Except for the soundless song part :P
2017-09-25 15:14:29 GMT <yreg> but it is indeed an interesting toolinteresting
2017-09-25 15:14:31 GMT <douglascrp> that was at least funny :D
2017-09-25 15:14:49 GMT <douglascrp> bindu made an statement about the overlaping with the ootb support tools
2017-09-25 15:14:59 GMT <douglascrp> that seems to be true
2017-09-25 15:16:04 GMT <yreg> TBH: 20-30 % tops might overlap
2017-09-25 15:16:27 GMT <douglascrp> yes, but I guess it will be no conflicts
2017-09-25 15:16:33 GMT <yreg> but it has a lot of features missing from OOTB ST, and the same goes on the other side
2017-09-25 15:16:43 GMT <yreg> maybe 20-30% is an over statment
2017-09-25 15:16:43 GMT <douglascrp> yes
2017-09-25 15:16:49 GMT <yreg> probably more like 10-20%
2017-09-25 15:23:47 GMT <qwebirc73165> Hi
2017-09-25 15:24:48 GMT <qwebirc73165> I am thinking to start using share connector to access an external Alfresco Process Services
2017-09-25 15:25:32 GMT <resplin> qwebirc73165: That's good to here.
2017-09-25 15:27:26 GMT <resplin> I mean good to hear.
2017-09-25 15:27:35 GMT <resplin> It's nice to hear about people using that product.
2017-09-25 15:31:14 GMT <qwebirc73165> sorry, I have been interrupted
2017-09-25 15:31:28 GMT <qwebirc73165> I am wondering if
2017-09-25 15:31:50 GMT <qwebirc73165> actually I am wondering how I can access the old
2017-09-25 15:31:54 GMT <qwebirc73165> workflow definition
2017-09-25 15:31:59 GMT <qwebirc73165> definitions
2017-09-25 15:32:21 GMT <qwebirc73165> because the share connector starts to use only workflows running on the external activiti engine
2017-09-25 15:32:39 GMT <qwebirc73165> but, I would like to keep also the workflows running in the embedded engine
2017-09-25 15:34:02 GMT <qwebirc73165> Is there a way to do it ?
2017-09-25 15:35:42 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, both modules are in place, but I can not see the alfresco/s/xenit/care4alf/ webscript
2017-09-25 15:35:50 GMT <douglascrp> it is not even listed in the all webscripts page
2017-09-25 15:35:59 GMT <douglascrp> but I can see the dynamic extension ones
2017-09-25 15:36:54 GMT <yreg> hmm what do you see in /alfresco/s/dynamic-extensions/
2017-09-25 15:37:27 GMT <AFaust> qwebirc73165: There should be an option/link in the new UIs of the connector to switch to the default Alfresco workflow UIs.
2017-09-25 15:37:49 GMT <douglascrp> 404
2017-09-25 15:38:09 GMT <douglascrp> but i can see a post one at alfresco/s/index/family/Dynamic%20Extensions
2017-09-25 15:38:20 GMT <douglascrp> osgi/restart
2017-09-25 15:38:37 GMT <AFaust> It is a bit of a shame that the UI integration wasn't done in a way that was more complementary / extending, instead of virtually replacing the old UI and then hiding it behind a complex click path
2017-09-25 15:38:57 GMT <douglascrp> so, I put the dynamic extension jar in the modules/platform and installed the care4alf amp
2017-09-25 15:39:12 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, is that the way you use it?
2017-09-25 15:39:35 GMT <yreg> douglascrp, that's odd
2017-09-25 15:39:44 GMT <yreg> can I have access to that dev instance ?
2017-09-25 15:40:10 GMT <douglascrp> yes
2017-09-25 15:40:12 GMT <qwebirc73165> Thanks AFaust. Does this option switch to the default Alfresco UI only for the user session ?
2017-09-25 15:41:28 GMT <AFaust> No, it is not session related. It really is just a simple navigation link somewhere, as far as I remember. To be fair / honest: I have not looked at the very latest version of the connector. My information is from around summer of last year...
2017-09-25 15:48:04 GMT <qwebirc73165> Ok. Thank you
2017-09-25 15:49:00 GMT <qwebirc73165> unfortunately, the documentation does not say anything about it
2017-09-25 15:51:00 GMT <resplin> qwebirc73165: If I remember correctly, all of Share's UI for accessing the embedded workflow engine is still available.
2017-09-25 15:51:06 GMT <resplin> The "My Tasks" pages.
2017-09-25 15:51:49 GMT <resplin> ~later tell AFaust I agree with your assessment of the APS Share Connector. We are looking to improve it, but it might not make the next major release.
2017-09-25 15:51:49 GMT <alfbot> resplin: The operation succeeded.
2017-09-25 15:51:49 GMT <qwebirc73165> they are, but they open the external activiti
2017-09-25 15:52:00 GMT <resplin> qwebirc73165: Interesting. I didn't realize that.
2017-09-25 15:52:21 GMT <resplin> This would be a good question to ask in http://community.alfresco.com
2017-09-25 15:52:23 GMT <alfbot> Title: Welcome | Alfresco Community (at community.alfresco.com)
2017-09-25 15:52:44 GMT <resplin> I suspect that the Share Connector makes a minor change to the UI to point it to the external Activiti, which would be easy to reverse.
2017-09-25 15:52:53 GMT <resplin> Support can also help.
2017-09-25 15:53:11 GMT <resplin> The design intention is that you would only use the embedded Activiti until the currently in-flight workflows completed.
2017-09-25 16:55:52 GMT <alfbot> AFaust: Sent 1 hour and 4 minutes ago: <resplin> I agree with your assessment of the APS Share Connector. We are looking to improve it, but it might not make the next major release.
2017-09-25 17:34:12 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, once the bulk process is started, how can I pause/stop it?
2017-09-25 17:34:32 GMT <douglascrp> or even change the parameters, like, increasing the number of nodes or threads?
2017-09-25 17:35:31 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, never, I found it
