2017-11-10 08:46:47 GMT <joyson> Hi Guys,

2017-11-10 08:46:53 GMT <joyson> I am trying to include aikau latest jar in share amp, When I try to build the amp file it fails saying package org.apache.commons.logging does not exist and other errors for packages in share java files.

2017-11-10 08:47:04 GMT <joyson> If I remove aikau dependency from pom.xml then everything works as expected.. any idea whats going on here ??

2017-11-10 08:53:31 GMT <DarkStar1> Good morning everyone

2017-11-10 09:01:53 GMT <mbui> http://dev.alfresco.com/resource/AlfrescoOne/5.2/PublicAPI/org/alfresco/service/cmr/lock/LockType.html

2017-11-10 09:01:54 GMT <alfbot> Title: LockType (Alfresco 5.2.2 Public Java API) (at dev.alfresco.com)

2017-11-10 09:21:57 GMT <david_____> good morning!

2017-11-10 09:22:32 GMT <david_____> what template do I have to change to add Support contact info to the footer of each page, by any chance?

2017-11-10 09:25:05 GMT <angelborroy> I think it’s still Surf

2017-11-10 09:25:28 GMT <angelborroy> so you can extend region-id “footer”

2017-11-10 09:26:19 GMT <angelborroy> or override footer.get.html.ftl

2017-11-10 09:47:19 GMT <hi-ko> Hi guys. I have a question concerning advanced search: Has anybody an idea how to implement an OR search or to inject additional search parameters to a search form?

2017-11-10 09:47:35 GMT <Loftux> The dashboard seem to have a limit of 5 items per column. Has anyone tried to increase that limit?

2017-11-10 09:49:02 GMT <hi-ko> loftux: so you have a 50" screen? ;-)

2017-11-10 09:51:06 GMT <Loftux> hi-ko: We have created a dashlet just just shows a small image, and when clicked links to a document. So doesn't occupy much space, and the customer wants a a lot of them now….

2017-11-10 09:52:52 GMT <Loftux> Found the dndConfig.targets.push in customise-dashlets.js

2017-11-10 09:52:52 GMT <Loftux> that has a set a fixed limit of 5. That can be overridden I guess, but only if Surf then handles it. On to testing

2017-11-10 10:03:01 GMT <Loftux> Nope, more is need than just increase maximum. That lets you add more, but only the first 5 are returned when loading the dashboard.

2017-11-10 10:35:29 GMT <AFaust> angelborroy, david_____ : The footer.get.html.ftl is for the "legacy" Share pages. The AIkau-based ones include of course a JSON fragment for the footer based on Dojo. See share-footer.lib.js as a reference. Customisation is similar to the alwaysApply approach for share-header on Aikau pages

2017-11-10 10:36:38 GMT <david_____> angelborroy, do you mean footer.get.html.ftl at /opt/alfresco/tomcat/webapps/share/WEB-INF/classes/alfresco/site-webscripts/org/alfreco/components/footer

2017-11-10 10:39:44 GMT <david_____> OK, AFaust , I'll have a look... thanks!

2017-11-10 10:56:52 GMT *** angelborroy_ is now known as angelborroy

2017-11-10 10:59:57 GMT <david_____> OK, the problem I se is that none of the PATHs mentioned in the pages exist in my Alfresco deploy...

2017-11-10 11:27:57 GMT <jforoni> Hi all! I'm testing an environment migrated from 4.2 to 5.2 community. In the 5.2 have an error during execution of background script rules (javascript) that moves document after creation, due to the concurrency with other async action (thumbnail creation). The rule fire twice because concurrency do a retry and however execute the error script associate to rule failing. How can I avoid this behavior (eventually moving thumbnail c

2017-11-10 12:41:25 GMT <qwebirc89976> does anybody know how to retrieve the hostname in a javascript file in Data Dictionary/Scripts folder?

2017-11-10 14:46:40 GMT *** angelborroy_ is now known as angelborroy

2017-11-10 14:55:00 GMT <fwu> hi all!

2017-11-10 15:02:02 GMT <xkahn> Aww... I had an answer for qwebirc89976

2017-11-10 15:11:50 GMT <cDavid> Hi all. Is it feasible to make an hot backup with a huge amount of data (>30TB)?

2017-11-10 15:21:48 GMT <yreg> cDavid, it's not the content store that you need to worry about

2017-11-10 15:21:52 GMT <yreg> it's the DB

2017-11-10 15:22:05 GMT <yreg> but it is possible, all you need to do is to start with DB

2017-11-10 15:22:34 GMT <yreg> if You do not have replication then I suspect you could do it without some down time

2017-11-10 15:23:06 GMT <yreg> as when you backup DB, it is expected to have the whole DB locked for a while until the operation finishes

2017-11-10 15:23:46 GMT <grendal_pure> can anyone help with setting up ssl with a purchased cert?

2017-11-10 15:24:11 GMT <cDavid> @yreg Thank you!

2017-11-10 15:24:22 GMT <yreg> AFaust, when in a workflow and I want a notification email to only go when operation is successful, Async action is the way to go right ?

2017-11-10 15:24:26 GMT <grendal_pure> or even self signed...i use haproxy on the router at the wall but i cant seem to figure out what i need to do to get this to work.

2017-11-10 15:25:14 GMT <yreg> grendal_pure, AFAIK it's far easier to set SSL on the reverse proxy side of things

2017-11-10 15:25:46 GMT <yreg> we use nginx internally and I know a lot of people are using Apache as well

2017-11-10 15:26:02 GMT <grendal_pure> ok currently, i just forward port 8443 to the internal ip. that i suppose is bad

2017-11-10 15:26:25 GMT <grendal_pure> because alfresco is using that ssl cert for comunication with solr

2017-11-10 15:26:58 GMT <yreg> not sure if it is "bad" or jus inconvenient (generates a hell lots of work)

2017-11-10 15:34:23 GMT <AFaust> yreg: Currently in DevCon scheduling call...

2017-11-10 15:34:42 GMT <AFaust> But yes, async actions are the way to go if you do not require a guarantee that the emails are sent

2017-11-10 15:35:33 GMT <AFaust> Sync actions are only a good idea if you only send one email, because for multiple emails you would end up with the rollback + partially sent effect

2017-11-10 15:45:18 GMT <yreg> Ok thanks, I will run that by my client, if they require a guarantee that mails are sent, then I guess I will need to setup a transaction listener, on the before commit

2017-11-10 15:45:36 GMT <yreg> to execute my action there synchronously

2017-11-10 16:18:58 GMT <grendal_pure> yreg, ok i guess my question is, what is the easyest way and do you know of a howto? Because everythign i have found on the subject is pretty vague. I have a linux software router and i use ha proxy to forward subdomains around the inside. so like dms.mydomain.com goes to the alfresco server.

2017-11-10 16:20:35 GMT <grendal_pure> but...I need to be able to install the cert on the actual alfresco server because then all of the links..(in offce and on the road) will point to the same address. I also have split dns running on that software router.

2017-11-10 18:32:30 GMT <fwu> ppl, trying to upload a document to Alfresco using cmis 1.0 atom. For any property type, if I have a constraint associated with the property, I get a conflict constraint error like this:

2017-11-10 18:33:36 GMT <fwu> DotCMIS.Exceptions.CmisConstraintException: 'Conflict'

2017-11-10 18:34:01 GMT <fwu> any ideas on this, although this is not an Alfresco library...

2017-11-10 18:41:21 GMT <douglascrp> fwu, how about the alfresco log?

2017-11-10 18:41:33 GMT <douglascrp> can't you see anything there to help you understand what is wrong?
