2017-09-28 06:55:32 GMT <yreg> ~later tell eswbitto thanks for the pointer, I will let the team know of that fork we will probably rebase our docker image on it

2017-09-28 06:55:32 GMT <alfbot> yreg: The operation succeeded.

2017-09-28 07:19:16 GMT <hi-ko> Good morning! Has anybody seen a working config with Kerberos SSO _unser_ cross domain support? Doc talks only about the cross domain support for the webapp and I found MNT-12032: allow kerberos to authenticate using different domains (Unresolved)

2017-09-28 07:20:59 GMT <hi-ko> For my understanding this should also work if one could live with the sync restrictions (needs UPN instead of samAccountName, concept bugs in group sync based on group name only)

2017-09-28 07:28:56 GMT <bhavana> hi all

2017-09-28 07:29:06 GMT <bhavana> goodafternoon

2017-09-28 07:29:40 GMT <bhavana> how to integrate microsoft office in alfresco community

2017-09-28 07:30:35 GMT <bhavana> i am unable to edit with document using microsot office

2017-09-28 07:30:38 GMT <angelborroy> bhavana are you referring this? http://docs.alfresco.com/aos/concepts/aos-intro.html

2017-09-28 07:30:39 GMT <alfbot> Title: Alfresco Office Services 1.1.7 | Alfresco Documentation (at docs.alfresco.com)

2017-09-28 07:31:28 GMT <bhavana> i am getting following error

2017-09-28 07:31:31 GMT <bhavana> You're using a Microsoft Office version that isn't supported by Alfresco. Try updating Microsoft Office.

2017-09-28 07:32:46 GMT <angelborroy> bhavana what Microsoft Office version are you using?

2017-09-28 07:32:48 GMT <hi-ko> bhavana which OS/MS office are you using? Does your alfresco have an trusted SSL cert?

2017-09-28 07:33:12 GMT <angelborroy> is it included in official supported list at https://docs.alfresco.com/aos/concepts/aos-prereqs.html?

2017-09-28 07:33:33 GMT <hi-ko> bhavana and which browser are you using?

2017-09-28 07:35:01 GMT <bhavana> office 2010

2017-09-28 07:35:08 GMT <bhavana> windows 10

2017-09-28 07:35:16 GMT <bhavana> alfresco 5.2c

2017-09-28 07:35:32 GMT <bhavana> googlechrome

2017-09-28 07:40:10 GMT <hi-ko> HTTPS?

2017-09-28 07:42:28 GMT <hi-ko> <bhavana> are you using an reverse proxy / Upfront http listener?

2017-09-28 07:47:12 GMT <angelborroy> hi-ko it looks like a browser issue, as the error message comes from Share web app

2017-09-28 07:47:50 GMT <bhavana> #hi-ko#..not using reverse proxy

2017-09-28 08:38:15 GMT <mtsiak> hi all. the VersionServicePolicies.AfterCreateVersionPolicy is called after a new version is created, and after a version is reverted

2017-09-28 08:38:32 GMT <mtsiak> is there anyway, not to be called on revert ?

2017-09-28 08:42:21 GMT <angelborroy> mstiak try VersionServicePolicies.AfterVersionRevertPolicy

2017-09-28 08:42:31 GMT <angelborroy> mstiak but it is not part of the public API

2017-09-28 08:43:09 GMT <angelborroy> https://github.com/ecm4u/alfresco-ce-repository/blob/master/root/projects/repository/source/java/org/alfresco/repo/forum/DiscussableAspect.java#L126

2017-09-28 08:43:10 GMT <alfbot> Title: alfresco-ce-repository/DiscussableAspect.java at master · ecm4u/alfresco-ce-repository · GitHub (at github.com)

2017-09-28 08:58:01 GMT <mtsiak> what is the frozen state of the version?

2017-09-28 08:59:00 GMT <mtsiak> if the document node id is 1, the versionableNode is also 1

2017-09-28 09:01:55 GMT <mtsiak> the versionService.getVersionHistory(versionableNode).getFrozenStateNodeRef() is the is of the previous version ?

2017-09-28 09:02:14 GMT <mtsiak> is the ID of the previous version ?

2017-09-28 09:02:24 GMT <angelborroy> I’m not sure

2017-09-28 09:02:42 GMT <angelborroy> I think is the ID of the previousVersion values in the VersionStore

2017-09-28 09:05:17 GMT <mtsiak> ok. will keep with the tests in case i found out more.

2017-09-28 09:06:00 GMT <mtsiak> also, i have noticed that in 5.2 , when a new version is uploaded the filename is changed

2017-09-28 09:06:23 GMT <mtsiak> in 5.0, the starting name is kept. Is this correct ?

2017-09-28 09:06:28 GMT <angelborroy> when a new version is uploaded “with a different” filename, right?

2017-09-28 09:06:49 GMT <angelborroy> if you upload with the same filename, then the name is the same

2017-09-28 09:08:27 GMT <mtsiak> yes.

2017-09-28 09:08:39 GMT <angelborroy> It’s a new behavior from 5.2

2017-09-28 09:08:47 GMT <angelborroy> For me now it’s better

2017-09-28 09:08:54 GMT <mtsiak> what is the property in the content model ?

2017-09-28 09:09:02 GMT <angelborroy> cm:name

2017-09-28 09:09:03 GMT <angelborroy> ?

2017-09-28 09:09:03 GMT <yreg> angelborroy, the way it was was better

2017-09-28 09:09:14 GMT <angelborroy> the way it was, was incorrect

2017-09-28 09:09:15 GMT <yreg> it used to add -1, -2, -3 ...

2017-09-28 09:09:28 GMT <angelborroy> yreg this is not the case

2017-09-28 09:09:45 GMT <angelborroy> mtsiak is talking about uploading a new version with the action button

2017-09-28 09:09:51 GMT <angelborroy> previously the name was preserved

2017-09-28 09:09:56 GMT <yreg> now it is adding something weird like "Copy of"

2017-09-28 09:10:01 GMT <angelborroy> now if you upload a document with a different name, the name changes

2017-09-28 09:10:08 GMT <yreg> then "Copy of Copy of" ....

2017-09-28 09:10:23 GMT <angelborroy> yreg, again, this is not what we are talking of

2017-09-28 09:10:32 GMT <angelborroy> anyway I have also a patch for that use case

2017-09-28 09:10:33 GMT <yreg> ah you are talking about uploading new versions ?

2017-09-28 09:10:38 GMT <angelborroy> right

2017-09-28 09:10:50 GMT <angelborroy> with the action button (as I wrote some lines before)

2017-09-28 09:10:56 GMT <yreg> sorry, didn't go that far in the discussion

2017-09-28 09:11:42 GMT <angelborroy> yreg anyway you can patch that weird “Copy of” dance with this: https://github.com/keensoft/alfresco-version-by-name

2017-09-28 09:11:43 GMT <alfbot> Title: GitHub - keensoft/alfresco-version-by-name: Alfresco addon (auto-version files having the same name) (at github.com)

2017-09-28 09:11:46 GMT <angelborroy> Have you tried it?

2017-09-28 09:12:18 GMT <angelborroy> Probably some adaptations has to be done for 5.2, but it should work

2017-09-28 09:14:27 GMT <yreg> thanks

2017-09-28 09:37:58 GMT <cDavid> A client insists to have an Alfresco browser compatibility matrix that specify the single version of each browser compatible with Share. Is there such a document? How can I convince him that this is a nonsense?

2017-09-28 09:38:01 GMT <cDavid> Thanks

2017-09-28 09:43:36 GMT <yreg> cDavid, there is a compatibility matrix stating minimal versions compatible, and alfresco is supposed to be compatible for all newer versions

2017-09-28 09:44:48 GMT <yreg> cDavid, https://www.alfresco.com/cmis/views/cafbcfc0-6864-4c59-b9ca-f24eb9d6a9c2%253B1.26

2017-09-28 09:45:06 GMT <yreg> linked here https://www.alfresco.com/services/subscription/supported-platforms

2017-09-28 09:45:08 GMT <alfbot> Title: Supported Platforms | Alfresco (at www.alfresco.com)

2017-09-28 09:45:28 GMT <yreg> has a browser section, so it might cover what you need

2017-09-28 09:46:10 GMT <cDavid> Thanks yreg... I got the compatibility matrix but it reports "latest versions" of the browser and doesn't mention the previous versions...

2017-09-28 09:46:50 GMT <yreg> I would assume latest version on the date of the release, and all versions onwards

2017-09-28 09:53:52 GMT <cDavid> @yreg Ok...it's a good answer... It's a difficult client. I hope I can convince him :)

2017-09-28 09:55:02 GMT <bhavana> hi all

2017-09-28 09:55:24 GMT <bhavana> can i create custom role in alfresco community

2017-09-28 09:58:56 GMT <angelborroy> bhavana the short answer is yes

2017-09-28 09:59:03 GMT <angelborroy> bhavana but it’s not that easy

2017-09-28 09:59:07 GMT <angelborroy> take a look at http://smasue.github.io/add-custom-role

2017-09-28 10:04:27 GMT <MorganP> Hi guys

2017-09-28 10:04:46 GMT <MorganP> Is it still possible to use the CMIS WebServices in 1.1?

2017-09-28 10:05:01 GMT <MorganP> in 1.0, the url was /alfresco/cmisws/cmis?wsdl I think

2017-09-28 10:05:06 GMT <angelborroy> nope

2017-09-28 10:05:11 GMT <angelborroy> it’s only available for 1.0

2017-09-28 10:05:15 GMT <MorganP> in 1.1, there is the browser... which is nice

2017-09-28 10:05:46 GMT <MorganP> What I don't understand is that there https://docs.alfresco.com/community/pra/1/concepts/cmis-bindings.html

2017-09-28 10:05:48 GMT <alfbot> Title: CMIS bindings | Alfresco Documentation (at docs.alfresco.com)

2017-09-28 10:05:54 GMT <MorganP> it is mentioned the WebServices...

2017-09-28 10:06:18 GMT <MorganP> but I cannot get it working

2017-09-28 10:06:25 GMT <MorganP> atom and browser do work

2017-09-28 10:06:34 GMT <angelborroy> they say web services, which can be REST services but they are not WSDL services

2017-09-28 10:07:56 GMT <MorganP> So if my external tool only support Atom or WebServices

2017-09-28 10:08:08 GMT <MorganP> maybe it's better to use atom in 1.1 than wsdl in 1.0

2017-09-28 10:08:19 GMT <angelborroy> IMO, yes

2017-09-28 11:53:21 GMT <yreg> Guys, how can I order sets in form configs

2017-09-28 12:21:02 GMT <yreg> I get the impression fields/sets from aspects always get listed first

2017-09-28 12:21:28 GMT <douglascrp> morning

2017-09-28 12:26:34 GMT <yreg> morning douglascrp

2017-09-28 12:26:57 GMT <yreg> you had your fair share of share form config right ? <grin>

2017-09-28 13:08:14 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, morning

2017-09-28 13:08:26 GMT <douglascrp> I didn't get that

2017-09-28 13:09:00 GMT <douglascrp> morning everybody

2017-09-28 13:19:20 GMT <yreg> nevermind

2017-09-28 13:19:24 GMT <yreg> solved my issue

2017-09-28 13:20:07 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, cool

2017-09-28 13:20:18 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, I forgot to tell you this

2017-09-28 13:20:35 GMT <douglascrp> I was able to manipulate all the nodes in that repository using care4alf

2017-09-28 13:20:38 GMT <douglascrp> it works really well

2017-09-28 13:21:44 GMT <yreg> Glad to hear

2017-09-28 13:22:04 GMT <douglascrp> thank you for the tip

2017-09-28 13:22:16 GMT <yreg> urw

2017-09-28 13:22:22 GMT <douglascrp> I will play with it and try to get used with all the utilities

2017-09-28 13:22:44 GMT <douglascrp> I was thinking how hard would be to add new queries for the sql tab

2017-09-28 13:23:02 GMT <douglascrp> I used one a few days ago to discover the real size of the database

2017-09-28 13:23:38 GMT <yreg> it shouldn't be hard, please create PRs if you have useful queries

2017-09-28 13:23:40 GMT <douglascrp> using some queries from this link https://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/Disk_Usage

2017-09-28 13:26:25 GMT <douglascrp> ok, I will take a look at that later

2017-09-28 14:18:27 GMT <fwu> hi all!

2017-09-28 14:18:39 GMT <douglascrp> fwu, hi

2017-09-28 14:18:41 GMT <fwu> ppl, anyone using alvex master data?

2017-09-28 14:18:47 GMT <fwu> douglascrp, hello!

2017-09-28 14:27:59 GMT <fwu> Im using it to define type constraints. It works as I can restrict the data to a field and to get a dropdown with the constriant data.

2017-09-28 14:28:30 GMT <fwu> However, if I set a info ftl I dont get the descriotion of the constraint.

2017-09-28 14:29:02 GMT <fwu> I believe that in ootb constraints, the info.ftl would display descriptions

2017-09-28 17:20:24 GMT <fwu> ppl, it seems that the show workflow diagram button is not working on the latest Alfresco version (workflow details screen). Is that true?

2017-09-28 19:40:47 GMT <fwu> back!

2017-09-28 19:40:59 GMT <fwu> ppl, Im getting this error: 2017-09-28 20:39:36,438 ERROR [extensions.webscripts.AbstractRuntime] [http-apr-8081-exec-1] Exception from executeScript: 08280019 Wrapped Exception (with status template): 08280058 Invalid Global Id 'activitiInvitationNominatedAddDirect' org.springframework.extensions.webscripts.WebScriptException: 08280019 Wrapped Exception (with status template): 08280058 Invalid Global Id 'activitiInvitationNominated

2017-09-28 19:41:15 GMT <fwu> when trying to acces the workflows I have started

2017-09-28 19:41:33 GMT <fwu> anyone got this already?

2017-09-28 19:42:11 GMT <fwu> that is actually a workflow that I hide in the configurations, like many others. But this is making that error.
