2017-10-10 06:17:24 GMT <yreg> Good morning folks !

2017-10-10 06:18:03 GMT <yreg> resplin, you almost fouled me for a moment there... then the "Suggest an edit" comes <grin>

2017-10-10 07:58:28 GMT <Tichodroma> Do you know which JS event causes the tree view in Share to refresh?

2017-10-10 07:59:32 GMT <Tichodroma> I'm looking for something like YAHOO.Bubbling.fire("metadataRefresh") that refreshes the folder tree view

2017-10-10 08:50:59 GMT <yreg> tanwarm, just put an answer there

2017-10-10 09:01:23 GMT <tanwarm> yreg. thank you for your reply. but its not working. I have replied on that.

2017-10-10 09:05:17 GMT <yreg> custom-web-context.xml

2017-10-10 09:05:28 GMT <yreg> tanwarm, that's the filename you should use

2017-10-10 09:06:00 GMT <yreg> probably should get rid of the import statement as well !

2017-10-10 09:53:25 GMT <mbui> Regarding groups, is it possible to change the authority name of a group without any side effects? Such as permissions on nodes, tasks etc on existing nodes?

2017-10-10 09:53:49 GMT <MTielemans> mbui, this is what the display name is for.

2017-10-10 09:54:55 GMT <mbui> Yeah I know, it's just kinda weird that the display name may be something entirely different from the atuhority name.

2017-10-10 10:03:51 GMT <MTielemans> It is. There might be a way to force a change in the authority name, but it would be very tough to account for all the repercussions that would have

2017-10-10 10:04:10 GMT <MTielemans> I think you´re better off creating a new group and copying the authorities to it.

2017-10-10 10:04:24 GMT <MTielemans> as well as permissions

2017-10-10 10:04:44 GMT <MTielemans> Note that this does not account for ACLs as defined in Spring bean definitions

2017-10-10 12:40:46 GMT <cDavid> Hi, is Alfresco Process Service 1.7 stable enought for production use? If not, what version Should I use?

2017-10-10 12:41:23 GMT <cDavid> (APS enterprise)

2017-10-10 12:56:54 GMT <yreg> cDavid, once released, it should (must) be production ready.. especially when we are talking about paid enterprise software

2017-10-10 12:58:30 GMT <cDavid> Thank you!

2017-10-10 13:01:06 GMT <Tichodroma> db-afts search syntax supports exact comparison like =myns:longprop:1234567

2017-10-10 13:01:25 GMT <Tichodroma> do you know how to compare a d:long property using operators like < or >= ?

2017-10-10 13:02:06 GMT <Tichodroma> background: Solr is not enabled but comparisons the DB could easily do using SQL are necessary

2017-10-10 13:03:05 GMT <yreg> Tichodroma, either switch db-cmis or you need to implement ranges and create a range between MIN/MAX value and the desired value

2017-10-10 13:03:57 GMT <Tichodroma> what would be the syntax for db-cmis?

2017-10-10 13:04:36 GMT <yreg> I implemented range query support for db-afts a while back, if you would like, I can hook you up with our sales

2017-10-10 13:04:48 GMT <Tichodroma> ;)

2017-10-10 13:05:13 GMT <yreg> Tichodroma, TBH I am not sure, I have always found CMIS syntax to be cumbersome and go to wiki/doc every time I need to create a new query

2017-10-10 13:05:26 GMT <Tichodroma> do you have a link to the docs?

2017-10-10 13:08:22 GMT <yreg> https://community.alfresco.com/docs/DOC-5898-cmis-query-language

2017-10-10 13:08:24 GMT <alfbot> Title: CMIS Query Language | Alfresco Community (at community.alfresco.com)

2017-10-10 13:09:32 GMT <Tichodroma> looks like only a limited set of properties is supported

2017-10-10 13:11:08 GMT <yreg> Tichodroma, you could join on aspects / select from custom types ...

2017-10-10 13:11:21 GMT <yreg> but it is annoyingly verbose ...

2017-10-10 13:12:09 GMT <Tichodroma> hm, so without Solr there is no official way to query for custom node properties except using = ('equal') comparison?

2017-10-10 13:12:16 GMT <yreg> and the OOTB fields are remapped to the cmis namespace, apparently to obey to the standard

2017-10-10 13:12:58 GMT <yreg> As I said, CMIS does support that

2017-10-10 13:13:20 GMT <yreg> s/CMIS/CMIS language query/

2017-10-10 13:14:58 GMT <yreg> Tichodroma, http://alfrescoblog.com/2014/07/12/alfresco-cmis-tutorial/

2017-10-10 13:15:03 GMT <alfbot> Title: Alfresco CMIS tutorial | Alfresco Blog (at alfrescoblog.com)

2017-10-10 13:18:40 GMT <Tichodroma> hm, that works for a clause like ... WHERE cmis:name = 'foo'

2017-10-10 13:19:13 GMT <Tichodroma> but using a custom property in the WHERE clause fails: ... WHERE myns:mylongprop = 12345678

2017-10-10 13:19:32 GMT <Tichodroma> "Invalid column for myns:mytype.myns:mylongprop

2017-10-10 13:20:11 GMT <yreg> Tichodroma, share the whole query please

2017-10-10 13:20:33 GMT <yreg> You are probably not using the right type in the from clause

2017-10-10 13:20:39 GMT <Tichodroma> select * from myns.mytype where myns:mylongprop = 12345678

2017-10-10 13:20:55 GMT <Tichodroma> can't use the real names because $CUSTOMER is visible from it :)

2017-10-10 13:21:22 GMT <Tichodroma> select * from myns:mytype where myns:mylongprop = 12345678

2017-10-10 13:22:00 GMT <Tichodroma> that gives: Invalid column for myns:mytype.myns:mylongprop

2017-10-10 13:22:26 GMT <Tichodroma> just select * from myns:mytype works

2017-10-10 13:35:01 GMT <Tichodroma> yreg: thanks so far. The CMIS join syntax is so ugly that I probably use raw SQL.

2017-10-10 14:10:06 GMT <yreg> Tichodroma, sorry was in a meeting

2017-10-10 14:10:14 GMT <yreg> told you so <grin>

2017-10-10 15:17:39 GMT <resplin> yreg: My French is awful.

2017-10-10 15:23:53 GMT <yreg> Do not worry, lots of people would even go further and ommit the "My"

2017-10-10 15:24:36 GMT <yreg> -= THIS MESSAGE NOT LOGGED =-

2017-10-10 15:31:28 GMT <resplin> lol

2017-10-10 16:09:26 GMT <douglascrp> hello

2017-10-10 16:17:13 GMT <resplin> Oi

2017-10-10 16:17:24 GMT <douglascrp> opa, tudo bem? :D

2017-10-10 16:18:29 GMT <douglascrp> resplin, praticando o português?

2017-10-10 16:18:53 GMT <resplin> Necessito para me preparar pelo DevCon em Lisboa.

2017-10-10 16:19:04 GMT <resplin> I've been brainstorming lightning talk submissions.

2017-10-10 16:19:06 GMT <douglascrp> s/pelo/para

2017-10-10 16:19:12 GMT <resplin> Thanks.

2017-10-10 16:19:21 GMT <douglascrp> nice

2017-10-10 16:19:25 GMT <douglascrp> too many?

2017-10-10 16:19:50 GMT <resplin> I was proud of my lightning talks last year, so all my ideas this year seem awful by comparison.

2017-10-10 16:20:26 GMT <douglascrp> got it

2017-10-10 16:39:06 GMT <yreg> resplin, not that I want to discourage you, but last year's LTs were awesome !

2017-10-10 16:39:26 GMT <douglascrp> resplin, the pressure is bigger now :D

2017-10-10 16:41:30 GMT <resplin> Thanks for the kind words. I was happy with how they worked out.

2017-10-10 16:41:35 GMT * resplin scratches out some more bad ideas

2017-10-10 17:12:51 GMT <yreg> resplin, you will get there eventually, don't worry !

2017-10-10 17:13:10 GMT <resplin> Some of these ideas might have legs . . .

2017-10-10 17:13:11 GMT <yreg> just don't talk about unicorns this time

2017-10-10 19:42:51 GMT <resplin> What's wrong with unicorns?

2017-10-10 19:43:00 GMT * resplin scratches the ideas of his list . . .

2017-10-10 19:50:05 GMT <resplin> grin
