2017-10-09 07:28:23 GMT <yreg> ~later tell fwu nope Desktop Sync is an exclusively EE feature, but it comes without any extra cost to the basic EE license

2017-10-09 07:40:12 GMT <fcorti> digitat: yes, you can see Richard's reply there.

2017-10-09 07:40:34 GMT <fcorti> Some things are correct, others on the edge ;-)

2017-10-09 07:42:36 GMT <fcorti> I was (and I'm sorry) for his decision and Alfresco should work better on pains

2017-10-09 07:43:54 GMT <fcorti> contributions and some ticket duration are the biggest one, as I receive from you (and not only from you) at the moment.

2017-10-09 07:45:07 GMT <fcorti> chandu: I imagine you will have to customise the source code there. It is not an out of the box behaviour.

2017-10-09 07:46:33 GMT <digcat> hey fcorti yes, and we are seeing improvements! just passing the info

2017-10-09 07:46:47 GMT <digcat> catch up tomorrow

2017-10-09 07:47:13 GMT <fcorti> really you are seeing improvements? This is a good news.

2017-10-09 07:47:31 GMT <fcorti> (don't worry, we will continue to push hard on this :-) )

2017-10-09 07:47:36 GMT <digcat> yes

2017-10-09 07:47:47 GMT <fcorti> this is good!

2017-10-09 07:48:20 GMT <fcorti> Please continue to to share what Alfresco could do better... it means we are on the right track! (and we want to stay there)

2017-10-09 07:48:21 GMT <digcat> github a good move, just hope de management keep up support

2017-10-09 07:48:44 GMT <fcorti> CORRECT, github move is exactly in this direction.

2017-10-09 07:48:51 GMT <digcat> sorry to see gethan moved to nuxeo

2017-10-09 07:48:55 GMT <fcorti> Yes, Menagement is supporting the decision

2017-10-09 07:49:24 GMT <fcorti> as you can see, fact require time... sometimes too much, but they are happening.

2017-10-09 07:49:43 GMT <fcorti> I'm very sorry too!

2017-10-09 07:50:06 GMT <digcat> anyway will come see you tomorrow

2017-10-09 07:50:11 GMT <fcorti> cool!

2017-10-09 07:50:15 GMT <digcat> is that 5.30pm sharp :)

2017-10-09 07:50:20 GMT <fcorti> yep

2017-10-09 07:50:27 GMT <digcat> nice

2017-10-09 07:50:28 GMT <fcorti> happy to see you there

2017-10-09 07:50:29 GMT <fcorti> :-)

2017-10-09 07:50:34 GMT <bhagyas> this article looks exactly like a personal draft i was working on :p

2017-10-09 07:50:46 GMT <fcorti> Welcome back bhagyas

2017-10-09 07:50:47 GMT <fcorti> :-)

2017-10-09 07:50:54 GMT <bhagyas> tack fcorti

2017-10-09 07:50:55 GMT <fcorti> We missed you in the hackathon?

2017-10-09 07:51:01 GMT <bhagyas> Good morning!

2017-10-09 07:51:06 GMT <fcorti> (question mark is a typo)

2017-10-09 07:51:18 GMT <digcat> hey bhagyas, morning

2017-10-09 07:51:19 GMT <bhagyas> fcorti: I was probably snorkeling with the sharks in maldives during that time

2017-10-09 07:51:31 GMT <bhagyas> good morning digcat :)

2017-10-09 07:51:44 GMT <fcorti> lucky guy... Alfresco tehcnology is paying well I see

2017-10-09 07:51:45 GMT <fcorti> :-D

2017-10-09 07:51:58 GMT <bhagyas> haha

2017-10-09 07:53:41 GMT <bhagyas> now let's work on sustaining that shall we ;p

2017-10-09 07:56:40 GMT <bhagyas> fcorti: how have you been?

2017-10-09 07:56:58 GMT <fcorti> everything is fine

2017-10-09 07:56:59 GMT <fcorti> thank you

2017-10-09 07:57:19 GMT <fcorti> are you planning join the DevCon?

2017-10-09 07:57:23 GMT <fcorti> I hope so!

2017-10-09 07:57:27 GMT <bhagyas> hopefully!

2017-10-09 07:57:53 GMT <bhagyas> im glad that Alfresco has finally moved to Github after years of lobbying :p

2017-10-09 07:59:35 GMT <bhagyas> or rather complaining

2017-10-09 07:59:39 GMT <bhagyas> phew

2017-10-09 07:59:56 GMT <fcorti> yes... slow, but on going

2017-10-09 08:00:00 GMT <bhagyas> but I heard Sam left

2017-10-09 08:00:04 GMT <bhagyas> or something similar

2017-10-09 08:00:11 GMT <fcorti> and of course it's the first move..

2017-10-09 08:00:13 GMT <bhagyas> is it true?

2017-10-09 08:00:14 GMT <bhagyas> :/

2017-10-09 08:00:15 GMT <fcorti> yes, SAmuel left

2017-10-09 08:00:20 GMT <bhagyas> damn :(

2017-10-09 08:00:30 GMT <fcorti> he found a job close to his house

2017-10-09 08:00:36 GMT <bhagyas> in France?

2017-10-09 08:00:40 GMT <fcorti> no no

2017-10-09 08:00:46 GMT <fcorti> his house in London

2017-10-09 08:00:56 GMT <bhagyas> ah okay

2017-10-09 08:01:04 GMT <fcorti> one hour of train every day was not good for hium

2017-10-09 08:01:09 GMT <bhagyas> thought Alfresco used to offer remote work

2017-10-09 08:01:19 GMT <fcorti> it depends on the roles

2017-10-09 08:01:22 GMT <yreg> fcorti, I doubt that would be the only (nor even the main) reason why he left :)

2017-10-09 08:01:24 GMT <bhagyas> fcorti: you're working from home, right?

2017-10-09 08:01:36 GMT <fcorti> yes, I work from home (Italy)

2017-10-09 08:02:11 GMT <bhagyas> hmm :/

2017-10-09 08:02:21 GMT <fcorti> yes, yreg, also after some yeras he disagreed with some stuff

2017-10-09 08:02:29 GMT <bhagyas> who else left during the past four months?

2017-10-09 08:02:43 GMT <fcorti> too many

2017-10-09 08:02:44 GMT <fcorti> :-D

2017-10-09 08:02:49 GMT <fcorti> Gethin James

2017-10-09 08:03:03 GMT <fcorti> Enzo Rivello (DevOp)

2017-10-09 08:04:10 GMT <bhagyas> Gethin name sounds familiar

2017-10-09 08:04:38 GMT <bhagyas> did Dave also leave?

2017-10-09 08:04:53 GMT <fcorti> oh... we discussed a lot about Dave

2017-10-09 08:04:54 GMT <fcorti> Yes

2017-10-09 08:05:14 GMT <fcorti> Also Jean Marie Pascal

2017-10-09 08:05:59 GMT <fcorti> oh...

2017-10-09 08:06:00 GMT <bhagyas> :|

2017-10-09 08:06:01 GMT <fcorti> another sad

2017-10-09 08:06:13 GMT <fcorti> Kevin Roast

2017-10-09 08:06:33 GMT <bhagyas> O_O

2017-10-09 08:07:12 GMT <bhagyas> so no one to fix UserService anymore :(

2017-10-09 08:08:18 GMT <fcorti> naaaa

2017-10-09 08:08:29 GMT <fcorti> there is a brand new team behind it

2017-10-09 08:08:37 GMT <bhagyas> any newer senior guys joined?

2017-10-09 08:08:42 GMT <fcorti> David Webster is dealing with it (with other guys)

2017-10-09 08:09:05 GMT <bhagyas> aha

2017-10-09 08:09:28 GMT <yreg> bhagyas, some people are harder to replace than others, but no one is irreplaceable ...

2017-10-09 08:09:37 GMT <fcorti> true

2017-10-09 08:09:39 GMT <bhagyas> fcorti: Don't you think that it might be the time for a completely new share client with ADF?

2017-10-09 08:10:03 GMT <yreg> How ever, I do think Alfresco is loosing key people as a much bigger pace than what it can replace

2017-10-09 08:10:04 GMT <bhagyas> that is fully open source

2017-10-09 08:10:38 GMT <bhagyas> yreg: the only key people i care about not being there are the higher ups, the engineers don't get a say i guess

2017-10-09 08:10:43 GMT <bhagyas> :P

2017-10-09 08:11:22 GMT <yreg> s/as/in/

2017-10-09 08:11:37 GMT <bhagyas> fcorti: on the other note, smb3 is becoming more and more requested from most people

2017-10-09 08:13:40 GMT <fcorti> About ShareOnADF: it's a relatively long path, but we are starting to see the first results (Hacktahon contributions for example)

2017-10-09 08:13:57 GMT <fcorti> bhagyas: and you missed for the sharks.... buuuuuu

2017-10-09 08:13:59 GMT <fcorti> :-)

2017-10-09 08:14:06 GMT <bhagyas> sharks were nicer :p

2017-10-09 08:14:11 GMT <fcorti> agree

2017-10-09 08:14:12 GMT <fcorti> ;-)

2017-10-09 08:14:14 GMT <bhagyas> ;)

2017-10-09 08:14:25 GMT <alfbot> angelborroy: Sent 1 day, 16 hours, and 54 minutes ago: <fwu> I think I found what I was looking for: https://github.com/esig/dss/ I would like to talk with you a little bit about this subject and especially about ideas to integrate it in Alfresco.

2017-10-09 09:06:39 GMT <yreg> ~later tell resplin Iwas trying to make a non mandatory property mandatory

2017-10-09 09:06:39 GMT <alfbot> yreg: The operation succeeded.

2017-10-09 09:07:06 GMT <yreg> ~later tell AFaust that delete solr models and restart does not seem to be working

2017-10-09 09:07:06 GMT <alfbot> yreg: The operation succeeded.

2017-10-09 09:33:49 GMT <tushar__> hey can anyone plese help me, how to upgrade pdfJs version in alfresco

2017-10-09 09:39:56 GMT <yreg> tushar__, that would be a really hard task, You are probably better off using a separate project and simply do the upgrade there

2017-10-09 09:40:06 GMT <yreg> Loftux can shed some light on that

2017-10-09 09:40:49 GMT <yreg> tushar__, and TBH I do think you can easily get that extra button in without having to upgrade PDFJs

2017-10-09 09:41:24 GMT <yreg> I got it added on a 4.2.c almost 3 years ago

2017-10-09 09:41:34 GMT <yreg> it was a matter of customization

2017-10-09 09:42:26 GMT <yreg> I also assisted douglascrp get the same thing done for a newer alfresco (not sure anymore which alfresco) but you can ping him later as he is located in Brasil and usually connects around 2PM CET

2017-10-09 09:42:38 GMT <Loftux> tushar__: yreg: Yes it would be quite a big task, the latest from pdf.js is a lot different from what Alfresco uses. But haven't analyzed in detail

2017-10-09 09:44:11 GMT <tushar__> okay so i'll just see if i can get some custom code work to get a print action

2017-10-09 09:44:45 GMT <yreg> tushar__, all you need to do is :

2017-10-09 09:45:00 GMT <yreg> 1- add the button to the UI and hook it to some JS function

2017-10-09 09:45:36 GMT <yreg> 2- in that JS function, create a hidden IFrame, load the PDF content into it, and trigger the print on it

2017-10-09 09:45:58 GMT <yreg> it is more or less half a day worth of work

2017-10-09 09:46:27 GMT <tushar__> thanks for the help yreg

2017-10-09 09:46:33 GMT <tushar__> thanks to all

2017-10-09 10:20:56 GMT <alfbot> fwu: Sent 2 hours and 52 minutes ago: <yreg> nope Desktop Sync is an exclusively EE feature, but it comes without any extra cost to the basic EE license

2017-10-09 10:21:04 GMT <fwu> hi all

2017-10-09 10:21:22 GMT <fwu> yreg thank you!

2017-10-09 10:23:54 GMT <mtsiak> Hi all. I am trying to boostrap some files. E.g. replace an existing ftl email template. I have created a new all in one project, sdk 3.0.1, where the config files look like https://pastebin.com/VKA2gPAE

2017-10-09 10:23:55 GMT <alfbot> Title: \watermark-auth-it\watermark-auth-it-platform-jar\src\main\resources\alfresc - Pastebin.com (at pastebin.com)

2017-10-09 10:24:18 GMT <mtsiak> But i get Duplicate child name not allowed: invite-email.html.ftl

2017-10-09 10:25:02 GMT <angelborroy> mtsiak my guess is that you cannot update a content

2017-10-09 10:25:23 GMT <angelborroy> you only can include new content by using this feature, as it is designed to deploy patches in Alfresco

2017-10-09 10:27:08 GMT <mtsiak> i want to update an existing folder, by replacing an existing file

2017-10-09 10:27:24 GMT <angelborroy> mtsiak yep

2017-10-09 10:27:30 GMT <angelborroy> this is what you cannot do

2017-10-09 10:27:39 GMT <fwu> angelborroy, did you saw my message?

2017-10-09 10:27:46 GMT <mtsiak> angelborroy: ok...

2017-10-09 10:27:53 GMT <fwu> yreg, do you know this: http://cmissync.com/?

2017-10-09 10:27:54 GMT <alfbot> Title: CmisSync: Dropbox-like sync for your enterprise file server (at cmissync.com)

2017-10-09 10:28:29 GMT <angelborroy> fwu yep

2017-10-09 10:29:19 GMT <fwu> what you think about it? It seems it would be possible to use it in Alfresco, or not0'

2017-10-09 10:29:21 GMT <fwu> ?

2017-10-09 10:29:54 GMT <angelborroy> fwu it is possible, but you have to undertand deeper how to apply digital signature

2017-10-09 10:30:13 GMT <angelborroy> fwu syncrhonization between Alfresco and LTA is simple

2017-10-09 10:32:12 GMT <fwu> what would be the best strategy for that? In some how I need to have triggers that must execute manually when needed or automatically when a certificate is expiring...

2017-10-09 10:32:47 GMT <angelborroy> fwu I’ve implemented this kind of integration 3 or 4 years ago

2017-10-09 10:33:07 GMT <angelborroy> fwu In our case it was just a simple aspect in Alfresco to store expiration date

2017-10-09 10:33:14 GMT <angelborroy> and all the logic was fired by LTA software

2017-10-09 10:34:11 GMT <fwu> the aspect seems a good idea. Still how the lta would control that? it was always looking at the repo and the aspect values?

2017-10-09 10:34:33 GMT <angelborroy> fwu yep, basically it is a “cron” process

2017-10-09 10:35:22 GMT <fwu> but if you have milions of documents, would all them be resigned at once?

2017-10-09 10:35:49 GMT <angelborroy> in fact, this is the key of such kind of systems

2017-10-09 10:36:31 GMT <angelborroy> you have to use different TSAs in order to distribute your expirations dates

2017-10-09 10:37:01 GMT <angelborroy> and also you have to be able to re-stamp packages of contents, as probably you are not able to re-stamp every document on the same process

2017-10-09 10:37:47 GMT <angelborroy> also re-stamping time before an expiration date is produced will allow you to schedule your processes properly

2017-10-09 10:39:53 GMT <yreg> ~later tell AFaust it turned out someone got the briliant idea some time ago to redeploy the document model to the data dictionary (probably that was automatically done via model console) and that resulted in what I was experiencing

2017-10-09 10:39:53 GMT <alfbot> yreg: The operation succeeded.

2017-10-09 10:41:12 GMT <yreg> ~later tell AFaust All I needed to do is 1- use Care4alf to delete the active model (risky but OK) 2- Delete the model file from Data Dictionary/models 3- and then do as you suggested

2017-10-09 10:41:12 GMT <alfbot> yreg: The operation succeeded.

2017-10-09 10:41:14 GMT <fwu> ok, so the url I share makes possible to apply all kind or signs and re-signes, yet I need a mangement tool to apply it

2017-10-09 10:41:26 GMT <angelborroy> fwu yep

2017-10-09 10:56:17 GMT <MTielemans> yreg, isn´t care4alf a github repo?

2017-10-09 10:59:10 GMT <fwu> ppl,document metadata is also version as document content is in alfresco?

2017-10-09 11:00:26 GMT <angelborroy> yreg fwu Desktop sync is a paid add-on module for Enterprise, the client is free but not the server addon

2017-10-09 11:01:16 GMT <angelborroy> fwu Alfresco makes a version including content and metadata (by default)

2017-10-09 11:02:16 GMT <alfbot> douglascrp: Sent 3 hours and 32 minutes ago: <DarkStar1> at the risk of double posting, did you report the sdk bug? I'll wait to hear back from you before reporting it f you haven't

2017-10-09 11:03:11 GMT <douglascrp> morning everyone

2017-10-09 11:03:16 GMT <douglascrp> DarkStar1, no, I haven't

2017-10-09 11:03:44 GMT <fwu> angelborroy, thank you

2017-10-09 11:05:31 GMT <yreg> MTielemans, it is on bitbucket, but it is public

2017-10-09 11:05:43 GMT <MTielemans> yreg, Ah, cool, thanks.

2017-10-09 11:06:06 GMT <yreg> I have been lobbying internally to get it moved to github, but with no success so far :/

2017-10-09 11:06:45 GMT <yreg> as according to the team shifting it to github would not get us any added value and would only generate more work to shift CI and testing to point to the new repo

2017-10-09 11:06:48 GMT <douglascrp> DarkStar1, https://github.com/Alfresco/alfresco-sdk/issues/255

2017-10-09 11:06:49 GMT <alfbot> Title: Overriding OOTB webscripts and client side javascripts · Issue #255 · Alfresco/alfresco-sdk · GitHub (at github.com)

2017-10-09 11:07:27 GMT <yreg> + We can make projects public in bitbucket as wel, with a bit less visibility though

2017-10-09 11:07:34 GMT <douglascrp> DarkStar1, for an older version, but still there

2017-10-09 11:08:03 GMT <yreg> angelborroy, Are you sure that you would require an extra licensing fee for it ?

2017-10-09 11:08:08 GMT <angelborroy> yep

2017-10-09 11:08:19 GMT <yreg> Last time I checked, it was included in the EE license

2017-10-09 11:08:24 GMT <yreg> no extra cost was needed

2017-10-09 11:08:52 GMT <angelborroy> in 5.2 it appears in the “paid” list

2017-10-09 11:10:15 GMT <fwu> where I can see that pay list? I have some more doubts about what I can get in community vs enterprise...

2017-10-09 11:10:38 GMT <fwu> for isntance: connectors to SAP are free in the enterprise version? or a oyaed addon?

2017-10-09 11:10:39 GMT <fwu> payed

2017-10-09 11:11:04 GMT <angelborroy> fwu there are not connectors to SAP (afaik)

2017-10-09 11:12:07 GMT <douglascrp> angelborroy, yes, there is one https://www.alfresco.com/partners/solutions/connexas

2017-10-09 11:12:09 GMT <alfbot> Title: connexas | Alfresco (at www.alfresco.com)

2017-10-09 11:13:42 GMT <angelborroy> douglascrp curious, they are not listed in “official” Alfresco list

2017-10-09 11:14:11 GMT <fwu> angelborroy, where you see those lists?

2017-10-09 11:14:13 GMT <angelborroy> douglascrp probably because it is a solution provided by a partner and it does not come from SAP itself

2017-10-09 11:14:19 GMT <angelborroy> fwu Support Portal

2017-10-09 11:14:26 GMT <fwu> ok

2017-10-09 11:14:27 GMT <angelborroy> fwu probably it’s only for partners

2017-10-09 11:14:32 GMT <fwu> yes

2017-10-09 11:14:51 GMT <DarkStar1> douglascrp: Hey dude. Thanks for pointing that out. I'll just not bother to raise it again then

2017-10-09 11:14:53 GMT <fwu> I thought Alfresco had their own SAP integration...

2017-10-09 11:14:59 GMT <yreg> angelborroy, it is a partner solution, not an alfresco offering

2017-10-09 11:15:05 GMT <angelborroy> yreg +1

2017-10-09 11:15:42 GMT <yreg> angelborroy, where do you see that desktop sync has a price tag ?

2017-10-09 11:16:15 GMT <angelborroy> Usually I read this information at “Alfresco One Administration Guide” (distributed with every release)

2017-10-09 11:16:45 GMT <angelborroy> Includes a table with every module indicating if it is payed or not

2017-10-09 11:21:50 GMT <yreg> angelborroy, I can confirm that it does exist there now, and that it did not use to

2017-10-09 11:22:30 GMT <yreg> Thanks, I really need to share this with our sales

2017-10-09 11:24:06 GMT <tushar__> @yreg i aloso wanted to ask if i m about to do a print action will the same steps help me to get the prient view for images doc and text files ? or will there be need of a content transformation

2017-10-09 11:25:22 GMT <douglascrp> DarkStar1, but you could at least tell them the issue is still there

2017-10-09 11:26:03 GMT <yreg> tushar__, is you can preview it in PDF JS you should be able to print that preview

2017-10-09 11:26:25 GMT <yreg> @douglascrp, do you still have that customization to add the print button to share PDF js ?

2017-10-09 11:27:24 GMT <ashley_> Hi all,

2017-10-09 11:27:46 GMT <ashley_> Is there any add on for outlook integration with alfresco?

2017-10-09 11:27:47 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, yes, I have it, but it is integrated in one of my projects

2017-10-09 11:28:29 GMT <douglascrp> and it works only on chrome, as firefox has a bug that was not fixed

2017-10-09 11:28:44 GMT <douglascrp> but I can not remember what exactly it is

2017-10-09 11:28:52 GMT <douglascrp> I would have to recover that information

2017-10-09 11:31:19 GMT <yreg> douglascrp, I think that if you have time to extract it, and publish it as a community addon, that would be grat

2017-10-09 11:31:51 GMT <yreg> but I do not really need it, it is just that tushar__ was looking for a way to re-implement that ...

2017-10-09 11:33:44 GMT <DarkStar1> douglascrp: Might do later, hopefully I won't forget

2017-10-09 11:44:21 GMT <fwu> ppl, is it possbile in the community version have a distributed repository?

2017-10-09 11:44:44 GMT <fwu> and have replication at the same time?

2017-10-09 11:49:46 GMT <yreg> fwu, 1- not out of the box, there is a commercial offering from Acosix GmbH that adds clustering support for community though

2017-10-09 11:50:30 GMT <yreg> 2- if you mean DB replication, then that would be outside of the Alfresco scope and would strictly rely on the DB in use

2017-10-09 11:51:57 GMT <fwu> yreg, what about enterprise?

2017-10-09 11:54:17 GMT <bmejias> fwu clustering is supported by Alfresco enterprise, but what are you trying to achieve?

2017-10-09 11:54:22 GMT <bmejias> multiple Alfresco nodes?

2017-10-09 11:54:40 GMT <yreg> 1- Available as an extra offiring (paid)

2017-10-09 11:54:46 GMT <yreg> 2- same goes for EE

2017-10-09 11:54:48 GMT <bmejias> or replication of the state of your content? I mean, replication of your content store and replication of your database

2017-10-09 11:56:36 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, yes, that would be nice

2017-10-09 11:57:58 GMT <yreg> I do not knwo wha's wrong with my keyboard today, almost no sentence I write is free of typos !

2017-10-09 11:59:02 GMT <digcat> fwu theres also a neat addon by parashift, for replicating to multiple alfresco nodes

2017-10-09 12:15:02 GMT <ashley_> Can you please help me on this?

2017-10-09 12:15:08 GMT <yreg> ashley_, yes, as a paid, extra, addon for Enterprise Edition

2017-10-09 12:21:57 GMT <yreg> ashley_, my comment is valid for the official alfresco integration with outlook, not necessarily valid for the third party offering listed by Mark and Douglas

2017-10-09 12:22:18 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, indeed

2017-10-09 12:36:32 GMT <bhagyas> working on bringing back hazelcast based clustering to alfresco share…if anyones got tips or previous attempts, feel free to list them here

2017-10-09 12:38:28 GMT <yreg> bhagyas, why would you want to do that ?

2017-10-09 12:38:56 GMT <bhagyas> to enable share clustering on CE, that was removed by Alfresco back in 2012

2017-10-09 12:39:02 GMT <bhagyas> :)

2017-10-09 12:40:28 GMT <yreg> bhagyas, I am not aware of that

2017-10-09 12:40:36 GMT <yreg> s/am/was/

2017-10-09 12:43:26 GMT <yreg> bhagyas, AFAIK all you need to do is making the list holding all active sessions + active tickets distributed, and I assume that should not be a hard task to do from scratch

2017-10-09 12:43:57 GMT <yreg> bhagyas, plus I was under the assumption that share CE and EE are no different from one an other

2017-10-09 12:44:15 GMT <bhagyas> hoping to restore the removed code back and that alone might be enough to get it working ;)

2017-10-09 12:44:36 GMT <yreg> primarily because share EE code base seems to be available publicly in the old share mirror github repo

2017-10-09 12:44:58 GMT <bhagyas> yreg ce and enterprise was same long time ago

2017-10-09 12:45:04 GMT <yreg> https://github.com/Alfresco/share-old/tree/5.1.2.1

2017-10-09 12:45:05 GMT <alfbot> Title: GitHub - Alfresco/share-old at 5.1.2.1 (at github.com)

2017-10-09 12:45:41 GMT <yreg> I wouldn't expect Alfresco to publish those tags if they had anything extra over CE share

2017-10-09 12:46:37 GMT <bhagyas> the thing is share hasn't gotten any updates since they removed caching

2017-10-09 12:46:42 GMT <bhagyas> so let's see

2017-10-09 12:50:18 GMT <yreg> bhagyas, http://docs.alfresco.com/5.1/concepts/hazelcast-cluster-share.html the package for ClusterTopicService does not seem to be EE specific

2017-10-09 12:50:19 GMT <alfbot> Title: Configuring Hazelcast between Share instances | Alfresco Documentation (at docs.alfresco.com)

2017-10-09 12:51:20 GMT <bhagyas> thats on Alfresco One

2017-10-09 12:51:22 GMT <bhagyas> not on CE

2017-10-09 12:51:27 GMT <yreg> ok

2017-10-09 12:51:28 GMT <yreg> https://github.com/Alfresco/share-old/blob/2503c4738893e6f55c8a0e5b8ae98741edf0f093/share/src/main/resources/alfresco/web-extension/custom-slingshot-application-context.xml.sample

2017-10-09 12:51:45 GMT <yreg> *what about this ?? the config still ships as a sample context for CE

2017-10-09 12:52:01 GMT <bhagyas> yeah

2017-10-09 12:52:15 GMT <bhagyas> looking at ClusterAwareRequestContextFactory

2017-10-09 12:52:22 GMT <bhagyas> which is not available on CE anymore

2017-10-09 12:52:52 GMT <bhagyas> and I also guess webframework.cluster.clusterservice is not accessed/configured on CE

2017-10-09 12:55:52 GMT <yreg> bhagyas, I can't find it using class search in my IDE

2017-10-09 12:55:58 GMT <yreg> even though I am using EE

2017-10-09 12:56:13 GMT <yreg> so go ahead and try it, before jumping to conclusions

2017-10-09 13:11:09 GMT <fwu> ppl, it seems there is a SAP connector from Alfresco: https://www.alfresco.com/products/ecm/integrations/alfresco-sap-connector

2017-10-09 13:11:11 GMT <alfbot> Title: SAP connector for Alfresco | Alfresco (at www.alfresco.com)

2017-10-09 13:11:33 GMT <fwu> does this come with the enterprise license?

2017-10-09 13:11:51 GMT <fwu> or is it an additional payment?

2017-10-09 13:22:10 GMT <fwu> angelborroy, did you know about this connector? Is it new?

2017-10-09 13:23:00 GMT <angelborroy> nope, in fact I didn’t knew any SAP connector till some hours ago

2017-10-09 13:25:08 GMT <fwu> what I dont know now is if this comes with enterprise by default or if it is an additional payment.

2017-10-09 13:25:30 GMT <angelborroy> for sure: additional payment

2017-10-09 13:27:46 GMT <fwu> ok!

2017-10-09 13:29:27 GMT <douglascrp> angelborroy, fwu I can confirm that... it is an additional addon

2017-10-09 13:29:48 GMT <douglascrp> and really hard to integrate (at least that was the impression I had when I tried it)

2017-10-09 13:30:23 GMT <douglascrp> well, part of the problem was that I don't know sap, and I had to speak with the customer to do the config on a server that I could not even "look at"

2017-10-09 13:32:14 GMT <fwu> bmeijas, I was talking about the possibility of having a distributed repository and replication (copy of state) of that distributed repository.

2017-10-09 13:34:52 GMT <fwu> douglascrp, yes that kind of integration is always difficult. I once was in a project with the need of 3 person to integrate with SAP (open text), and we only needed 3 additional person to create all remaining software.

2017-10-09 13:37:23 GMT <fwu> bmejias not bmeijas... sorry

2017-10-09 13:38:26 GMT <douglascrp> fwu, that project I mentioned was not accepted by the customer at the time

2017-10-09 13:39:22 GMT <douglascrp> but not because the module didn't work... it was because it was impossible to install it the way the user was forcing us to work

2017-10-09 13:39:38 GMT <douglascrp> phone calls with no access to the server or screenshots, or whatever

2017-10-09 13:40:46 GMT <bmejias> fwu ok, so, one single alfresco instance.... You can can probably do that with Alfresco community. You will need a database that can replicate to a slave/stand-by node, and a replicated storage system.

2017-10-09 13:41:32 GMT <bmejias> for the database, I understand MySQL/MariaDB support that but I'm not sure about the details.

2017-10-09 13:42:08 GMT <bmejias> for Postgresql, what you need is called Streaming replication, and starting with version 10 you can also have logic replication.

2017-10-09 13:42:55 GMT <bmejias> fwu for the content store, the best would be to have something like Ceph, with replicates every storage object written to it, and it can be mounted as a regular drive

2017-10-09 13:43:09 GMT <bmejias> so you won't need a specific connector for the storage.

2017-10-09 13:43:41 GMT <bmejias> you will lose a bit performance for writing to the replicated storage but you win on robustness.

2017-10-09 13:44:01 GMT <bmejias> For the database, you don't have performance penalty if you use asynchronous replication.

2017-10-09 13:44:52 GMT <douglascrp> bmejias, hmmm, interesting topic

2017-10-09 13:45:13 GMT <bmejias> I would really love to give it a try to Ceph...

2017-10-09 13:45:46 GMT <bmejias> another possibility would be openstack but it seems more complicated to test....

2017-10-09 13:45:51 GMT <fwu> bmejias, all that your are talking is about Alfresco community, right?

2017-10-09 13:45:57 GMT <bmejias> maybe I should submit that as a topic for Alfresco DevCon....

2017-10-09 13:46:07 GMT <bmejias> fwu, yes, any Alfresco edition.

2017-10-09 13:46:17 GMT <bmejias> it should be transparent to Alfresco.

2017-10-09 13:46:22 GMT <fwu> what about the enterprise version? Does it come with those features?

2017-10-09 13:46:39 GMT <bmejias> it remains the problem of clustering your indexes...

2017-10-09 13:46:42 GMT <fwu> but doesn enterpirse have something already more configured?

2017-10-09 13:47:20 GMT <bmejias> fwu well, as I explained it's transparent to the Edition...

2017-10-09 13:47:31 GMT <bmejias> what is specific to enterprise is clustering of Alfresco nodes

2017-10-09 13:47:41 GMT <bmejias> so, multiple Alfresco nodes connected to the same database.

2017-10-09 13:47:58 GMT <bmejias> that doesn't imply your database is redundant.

2017-10-09 13:48:15 GMT <bmejias> it means more CPU power to process the Alfresco tasks, because you will have multiple nodes

2017-10-09 13:48:47 GMT <bmejias> but if your database can't follow the extra transactions, your database will be your bottleneck

2017-10-09 13:49:33 GMT <bmejias> also, if your database is redundant, it doesn't mean you can scale on processing power, it just mean that if your master crashes, you can continue with your standby node very quickly with very little downtime.

2017-10-09 13:49:41 GMT <angelborroy> bmejias afaik Enterprise provide clustering for Share based in hazelcast

2017-10-09 13:50:05 GMT <angelborroy> bmejias clustering Alfresco repo is very easy, as it is stateless

2017-10-09 13:50:09 GMT <bmejias> angelborroy yes, but that doesn't replicate the state of your application

2017-10-09 13:50:25 GMT <angelborroy> bmejias this is the point, yep

2017-10-09 13:50:49 GMT <bhagyas> angelborroy: the hazelcast is used to subscribe to cache invalidation topic on the share cluster

2017-10-09 13:50:54 GMT <bmejias> angelborroy stateless, but you still need to manage the sessions.

2017-10-09 13:50:56 GMT <bhagyas> which is no longer present on CE

2017-10-09 13:51:16 GMT <angelborroy> bmejias sessions are for Share, not for Repo

2017-10-09 13:51:26 GMT <bmejias> aha... OK

2017-10-09 13:51:42 GMT <yreg> angelborroy, what about authentication tickets ?

2017-10-09 13:51:54 GMT <angelborroy> we are using a simple Apache rule

2017-10-09 13:52:05 GMT <angelborroy> to redirect requests

2017-10-09 13:52:22 GMT <angelborroy> to the same node, you know

2017-10-09 13:52:26 GMT <fwu> angelborroy: for the share (client) part, right?

2017-10-09 13:52:27 GMT <yreg> sticky-ip ?

2017-10-09 13:52:34 GMT <angelborroy> yreg yep

2017-10-09 13:52:45 GMT <angelborroy> fwu we are not clustering Share web app in Community

2017-10-09 13:52:57 GMT <yreg> you still have issues with the invalid caches :

2017-10-09 13:53:06 GMT <fwu> what about this: Content Store Selector?

2017-10-09 13:53:16 GMT <fwu> is this for distributed repository?

2017-10-09 13:53:18 GMT <angelborroy> fwu only for Enterprise

2017-10-09 13:53:21 GMT <yreg> 1 - User 1 edits a document/metadata on node 1

2017-10-09 13:53:58 GMT <yreg> 2 - Before the default cache expiry User 2 access the same document (already cached in node 2)

2017-10-09 13:54:01 GMT <fwu> so for enterprise I have a way to "easily" configure a distributed repo, right?

2017-10-09 13:54:06 GMT <bmejias> fwu content store selector is a different story

2017-10-09 13:54:07 GMT <yreg> and access an old version of the data

2017-10-09 13:54:22 GMT <yreg> can be especially dangerous with permission

2017-10-09 13:54:31 GMT <yreg> or even with solr tracking

2017-10-09 13:55:12 GMT <douglascrp> fwu, and even for that, you have an opensource version

2017-10-09 13:55:14 GMT <yreg> I suppose you do not fall into that usecase really often unless you hve a highly active system for collaboration usecase

2017-10-09 13:55:26 GMT <bmejias> fwu if you *only* want to replicate the state (db + content store), there is no advantage on having enterprise, except if you need the content store selector.

2017-10-09 13:55:51 GMT <angelborroy> yreg we are clustering only repo part, which is used by apps, not by users

2017-10-09 13:56:15 GMT <yreg> My argument still apply

2017-10-09 13:56:15 GMT <bmejias> fwu for having multiple alfresco core/share nodes, you have it "easier" with enterprise, because it should be OOTB, but I don't know if you need an extra license

2017-10-09 13:56:25 GMT <angelborroy> yreg yes, if you use caches

2017-10-09 13:56:53 GMT <angelborroy> bmejias yes, there is an extra license

2017-10-09 13:57:01 GMT <yreg> unless 1 you are using Alfresco strictly as an archive AND 2 You do not rely on alfresco permissions to authorize access to data

2017-10-09 13:57:14 GMT <fwu> bmejias, ok. And the enterprise answer for that is: content store selector.?

2017-10-09 13:57:19 GMT <yreg> or 3 You have disabled caches repo-wide

2017-10-09 13:57:43 GMT <yreg> resulting IMHO in major performance degradation

2017-10-09 13:57:45 GMT <angelborroy> yreg this is our approach

2017-10-09 13:58:02 GMT <angelborroy> yreg there is not a MAJOR degradation, but it is slower, yes

2017-10-09 13:58:18 GMT <angelborroy> fwu pricing for cluster in Enterprise https://www.alfresco.com/platform/pricing

2017-10-09 13:58:19 GMT <alfbot> Title: Pricing Comparison | Alfresco (at www.alfresco.com)

2017-10-09 13:58:24 GMT <yreg> angelborroy, well, it depends on the load

2017-10-09 13:58:36 GMT <angelborroy> fwu Above 100,000 € / year

2017-10-09 13:58:58 GMT <angelborroy> fwu Content Selector is an aspect to store the contents on differente file systems

2017-10-09 13:59:06 GMT <angelborroy> fwu it has nothing to see with clustering

2017-10-09 13:59:29 GMT <bmejias> fwu no, the content store selector is for a specific need to split your storage, linked, but not strictly related to replication

2017-10-09 13:59:43 GMT <fwu> angelborroy, I know that, but my question was about 2 tipics.. My brain is still on the first one... :)

2017-10-09 14:00:07 GMT <angelborroy> yreg to be clear: clustering is always easier, faster, safer & better with Enterprise

2017-10-09 14:00:16 GMT <angelborroy> yreg No complain about that

2017-10-09 14:00:18 GMT <bmejias> fwu difficult to follow, what is the first one?

2017-10-09 14:00:52 GMT <fwu> angelborroy, that is what im trying to conclude... a clustered environmet with community may not be the best approach.

2017-10-09 14:01:11 GMT <angelborroy> In general terms is right to say that Alfresco Community cannot be clusterized for active / active scenarios

2017-10-09 14:01:36 GMT <angelborroy> However, installing every component on a different server and duplicating ever one with a passive replica...

2017-10-09 14:01:55 GMT <angelborroy> … you can build a High Availability scenario to move hundred of millions of documents

2017-10-09 14:02:58 GMT <angelborroy> on the other hand… if you are going to move hundred of millions of documents, probably you can pay an Enterprise license

2017-10-09 14:03:00 GMT <fwu> angelborroy, that price comes from what distribution?

2017-10-09 14:03:17 GMT <fwu> business or enterprise edition?

2017-10-09 14:03:20 GMT <fwu> on the page

2017-10-09 14:03:21 GMT <angelborroy> fwu for the only one with support for Cluster: Enterprise

2017-10-09 14:03:37 GMT <angelborroy> in fact it should be nearer 200,000 in some cases

2017-10-09 14:03:44 GMT <angelborroy> should > could

2017-10-09 14:03:46 GMT <fwu> ok, i ddint read the clustering text

2017-10-09 14:04:14 GMT <fwu> so, the price would be between 100 and 200?

2017-10-09 14:04:27 GMT <angelborroy> for a clusterized Enterprise server, YES

2017-10-09 14:05:25 GMT <fwu> the process services are another product service, right?

2017-10-09 14:05:35 GMT <angelborroy> yep, with different princing

2017-10-09 14:06:01 GMT <fwu> for the enterprise what would be the cost (more or less)?

2017-10-09 14:06:20 GMT <angelborroy> starting in 25,000 €

2017-10-09 14:06:28 GMT <angelborroy> but depends on you requirements

2017-10-09 14:07:02 GMT <fwu> ok, just to have an idea...

2017-10-09 14:08:21 GMT <fwu> so, concluding (or trying to):

2017-10-09 14:09:06 GMT <fwu> destributed repositories: enterprise uses content store selector. Community may use Simple Content Stores.

2017-10-09 14:11:31 GMT <bhagyas> fwu: just shoot a message to afaust and get the clustering module, that's the right thing to do

2017-10-09 14:12:31 GMT <fwu> to clustering: enterprise supports an expensive one. For community there is AFaust.

2017-10-09 14:12:41 GMT <fwu> hehe

2017-10-09 14:13:06 GMT <bhagyas> when Alfresco, the company goes, the community will still be there

2017-10-09 14:13:09 GMT <bhagyas> ;)

2017-10-09 14:16:21 GMT <fwu> yes, I do believe that!

2017-10-09 14:29:21 GMT <MorganP> For some time

2017-10-09 14:29:24 GMT <bmejias> fwu I'm a bit confuse by the use of the words repository and content store....

2017-10-09 14:29:59 GMT <bmejias> the content store is only about the files that are written to disk.

2017-10-09 14:30:00 GMT <MorganP> Despite the fact I saw the presentation from Jeff at the first beecon, I'm not sure the community would last long without a company in the middle

2017-10-09 14:30:13 GMT <bmejias> fwu no meta-data in the content store.

2017-10-09 14:31:03 GMT <bmejias> MorganP it is indeed a challenge. I also think we are far to claim that the community can go alone

2017-10-09 14:31:35 GMT <bmejias> I believe there could be independent contractors offering maintenance to Alfresco community edition, but not as a whole community....

2017-10-09 14:32:12 GMT <bmejias> and hence, no new releases of the software....

2017-10-09 14:32:13 GMT <fwu> bmejias, you are right to be confused, because even I the person making the question is also confused.... they ask me about repository, and I understand that as the content store...

2017-10-09 14:32:49 GMT <bmejias> I understand the repository as a combination of the content store with the database.

2017-10-09 14:33:04 GMT <fwu> and I think that is the point, indeed

2017-10-09 14:33:21 GMT <bmejias> but it could also be understood as the Alfresco core, which runs the repository service....

2017-10-09 14:33:23 GMT <fwu> the files on the file system + the database

2017-10-09 14:33:34 GMT <fwu> lets think like that then.

2017-10-09 14:33:41 GMT <bmejias> ok, let's think like that.

2017-10-09 14:33:59 GMT <bmejias> in such case, you are in the same position with Alfresco community that with Alfresco enterprise.

2017-10-09 14:34:32 GMT <bmejias> the clustering of alfresco enterprise will not offer you any solution for the replication of the database, nor for the files on the file system.

2017-10-09 14:36:33 GMT <bmejias> The only thing that the "content store selector" can help you out is to put different types of documents into different file storage.

2017-10-09 14:36:51 GMT <bmejias> but nothing imply that the file storage is replicated.

2017-10-09 14:37:22 GMT <bmejias> replication of the file storage, and the database, is not provided directly by Alfresco.

2017-10-09 14:37:37 GMT <bmejias> please, someone correct me if I'm wrong with that statement.

2017-10-09 14:37:48 GMT <douglascrp> bmejias, I guess you are right

2017-10-09 14:53:39 GMT <fwu> bmejias, for what I understood, the content store selector is just to send content to one place or the other. I will alwyas need something for the replication job. But doesnt enterprise come with something for that?

2017-10-09 14:54:23 GMT <bmejias> fwu, nope

2017-10-09 14:54:41 GMT <bmejias> or at least, not that we are aware of...

2017-10-09 14:59:06 GMT <fwu> bmejias, but if the store + metadata is replicated, is because we need to use them. Thus, if I simple replicate it using the dabatase and filesystem tools, how Alfresco will know about them and use them?

2017-10-09 14:59:52 GMT <fwu> so, I understand that Alfresco shouldnt do it, but should be able to use the result of it.

2017-10-09 15:02:03 GMT <yreg> ~later tell AngelBorroy I just confirmed with sales, Desktop Sync comes without any extra price tag, as in it is still included in the basic EE subscription.

2017-10-09 15:02:03 GMT <alfbot> yreg: The operation succeeded.

2017-10-09 15:03:20 GMT <bmejias> fwu in the case of the file storage, one way to do it is as follows:

2017-10-09 15:03:41 GMT <bmejias> you have a cluster of storage nodes, for instance, with OpenStack or Ceph.

2017-10-09 15:04:23 GMT <bmejias> that cluster needs to provide a way to mount the storage as a regular file system. So, the cluster provides you that layer.

2017-10-09 15:04:38 GMT <bmejias> that layer will cost you some performance, but it is transparent to Alfresco,

2017-10-09 15:04:54 GMT <bmejias> it will be mounted, for instance, on /data, as a network device.

2017-10-09 15:05:23 GMT <bmejias> the layer will manage where to write, or where to read. For alfresco, it's just reading files from /data

2017-10-09 15:06:50 GMT <bmejias> another solution for that, but more complex, it's with a storage service publishing a HTTP REST API, like Caringo, but then you'll need a specific connector for Alfresco to be able to read/write using http. you can contact yreg for that.

2017-10-09 15:07:40 GMT <bmejias> Now regarding the database: The simplest solution works as follows. You have a primary/master node, either with Postgresql or MySQL, which replicates with its own protocol to a standby/slave node.

2017-10-09 15:07:54 GMT <bmejias> Alfresco only read and write from the primary/master node.

2017-10-09 15:08:28 GMT <bmejias> only when the primary/master goes down, you have to switch to the standby/slave

2017-10-09 15:08:58 GMT <bmejias> but, you will have to reconfigure alfresco to change the ip of the db.url. That will require a restart of the Alfresco service.

2017-10-09 15:09:16 GMT <bmejias> unless.... this is slightly more advance... you use a virtual ip for the database

2017-10-09 15:09:39 GMT <bmejias> or a connection pool manager in between Alfresco and your database.

2017-10-09 15:09:59 GMT <bmejias> something like pgbouncer, or pgpool can do the job if you use PostgreSQL.

2017-10-09 15:10:56 GMT <fwu> bmejias, but your are talking about a disaster failure event only. what about replicate it in order to access the same thing at the same time and sync between them?

2017-10-09 15:11:26 GMT <bmejias> in such case, the switch from primary to standby can be done without reconfiguring/restarting Alfresco

2017-10-09 15:12:12 GMT <bmejias> for the database is very complicated. Active/active is not an obvious setting.

2017-10-09 15:12:59 GMT <bmejias> for the storage, it will depend on the storage system you use. Some of them provide load balancing....

2017-10-09 15:14:48 GMT <fwu> ok, then it is almost always dependet of the db and file sytem being used

2017-10-09 15:15:25 GMT <bmejias> yes... also, if you have more than one database actively being used, and more than one node for the storage, if you only have a single Alfresco node, you will still have a bottle neck there. So, the question is: why do you want replication?

2017-10-09 15:15:40 GMT <bmejias> to scale up? or to be more resilient?

2017-10-09 15:16:12 GMT <bmejias> answering that question first will help you identify which component needs redundancy.

2017-10-09 15:16:21 GMT <fwu> I dont know yet :( Im just trying to understand the possibilities

2017-10-09 15:16:33 GMT <fwu> yes, without any doubt on that!

2017-10-09 15:17:11 GMT <bmejias> fwu sure... understanding the possibilities is an important thing. In my case, I'm far more familiar with resilient systems, that scaling up, at least in the case of Alfresco.

2017-10-09 15:17:38 GMT <bmejias> I hope I was able to clarify some ideas, now I have to get the train back home.

2017-10-09 15:19:46 GMT <fwu> bmejias, thank you very much! great help indeed!

2017-10-09 15:20:36 GMT <bmejias> you're welcome, cheers

2017-10-09 15:31:00 GMT <fwu> ppl, how many taxonomies are possible to define in Alfresco?

2017-10-09 15:59:21 GMT <fwu> also, im using the mail action in my bpmn. Is it possible to add attachments to the email?
