Daily Log for #alfresco

2017-12-19 06:55:22 GMT <twen> hello

2017-12-19 07:41:39 GMT <Tichodroma> good morning (UGT)

2017-12-19 08:58:09 GMT <DarkStar1> Morning everyone.

2017-12-19 09:10:44 GMT <mrks_js1> Morning!

2017-12-19 09:24:58 GMT <atg_> Is there any way of notifying users of their assigned tasks directly in the browser?

2017-12-19 09:25:07 GMT <atg_> e.g. facebook-like notifications

2017-12-19 09:25:44 GMT <atg_> I figure it probably requires a full extension though

2017-12-19 09:39:45 GMT <jebla> hi - I'm getting "workingCopyLabel is null or empty" when uploading a new version of a document. Seems to apear after a solr reindex job. (Alfresco 5). Anybody have seen this?

2017-12-19 10:41:22 GMT <Tichodroma> Do you have experience with the cm:userAccountStatusProperty property that should contain information from LDAP/AD about, for example, a user being disabled?

2017-12-19 10:41:50 GMT <Tichodroma> In 5.2.GA.201707, this property is set on a cm:person but marked as a residual property!

2017-12-19 10:42:24 GMT <Tichodroma> Plus, the cm:person is not disabled, even the required bit (see https://archive.is/qdYvX) is set in AD.

2017-12-19 10:44:51 GMT <Tichodroma> maybe I should read http://docs.alfresco.com/5.2/concepts/ldap-sync-user.html first :)

2017-12-19 10:44:52 GMT <alfbot> Title: Synchronizing user account status | Alfresco Documentation (at docs.alfresco.com)

2017-12-19 11:09:35 GMT <Tichodroma> following http://docs.alfresco.com/5.2/concepts/ldap-sync-user.html with these properties https://gist.github.com/lutzhorn/c641716cb723d32bc4c699c8bfd4c2dc for AD, I fail to propagate the "user is disabled" setting from AD to Alfresco.

2017-12-19 11:09:37 GMT <alfbot> Title: Synchronizing user account status | Alfresco Documentation (at docs.alfresco.com)

2017-12-19 11:10:25 GMT <Tichodroma> the residual(?!) property cm:userAccountStatusProperty has the value 66050 which has the bit for "disabled" set, but the user is not disabled. Am I missing anything?

2017-12-19 12:42:45 GMT <yreg> Tichodroma, does this help : https://github.com/Alfresco/community-edition-old/blob/2c1eff9953d3105e738f7b06ba9ba8a079ca4c24/projects/repository/source/java/org/alfresco/repo/security/sync/ldap_ad/LDAPADUserAccountStatusInterpreter.java#L44

2017-12-19 12:42:46 GMT <alfbot> Title: community-edition-old/LDAPADUserAccountStatusInterpreter.java at 2c1eff9953d3105e738f7b06ba9ba8a079ca4c24 · Alfresco/community-edition-old · GitHub (at github.com)

2017-12-19 12:43:19 GMT <yreg> might be that the wrong bit is configured

2017-12-19 12:47:24 GMT <Tichodroma> yreg: I was able to make this work in 5.2

2017-12-19 12:47:36 GMT <Tichodroma> the subsystem name was wrong

2017-12-19 12:47:58 GMT <Tichodroma> I'll check if this feature was available in 5.1, too

2017-12-19 12:55:03 GMT <yreg> for the record I think cm:userAccountStatusProperty was residual straight from the beginning as I couldn't find it back in older projects

2017-12-19 12:55:16 GMT <yreg> **releases

2017-12-19 12:55:22 GMT <yreg> in the contentModel.xml

2017-12-19 12:56:49 GMT <Tichodroma> yes, it looks like this property is meant to be residual. With the correct configuration, the enabled/disabled state is calculated from it and stored in a non-residual property

2017-12-19 15:29:11 GMT <yreg> fcorti_, does the activiti jar archetype work with CE or just with APS ?

2017-12-19 15:30:18 GMT <fcorti_> hi yreg, well, activiti jar is not fully supported (unfortunately).

2017-12-19 15:30:26 GMT <fcorti_> I mean, from the SDK

2017-12-19 15:30:33 GMT <fcorti_> sorry... the maven archetype

2017-12-19 15:31:01 GMT <fcorti_> if you are going to use some specific features of the APS, something could go wrong

2017-12-19 15:32:33 GMT <yreg> fcorti_, I am not using APS, I am using activiti and thought that would (or could) speed up the process

2017-12-19 15:33:38 GMT <yreg> but since even with partner access to alfresco private repos I am not able to build the archetype, I am having second thoughts

2017-12-19 15:40:48 GMT <fcorti_> (unfortunately) actviti's archetype is not fully supported

2017-12-19 15:47:55 GMT <yreg> I really do not understand what is that supposed to mean

2017-12-19 15:48:04 GMT <yreg> I though the whole CE activiti was not supported

2017-12-19 16:12:26 GMT <fcorti_> yes, you right. The word "supported" is confusing.

2017-12-19 16:13:40 GMT <fcorti_> Let me say in this way: activiti artifact is discouraged to be used.

2017-12-19 16:18:07 GMT <yreg> that's even more confusing, but I got the idea

2017-12-19 16:46:53 GMT <owerfelli> Hi all, is it possible to use JavaScript API with AC 5.0.d ?

2017-12-19 16:52:25 GMT <owerfelli> I'm asking the question because I'm trying to use it, I can login, but search and node queries not working

2017-12-19 16:57:04 GMT <AFaust> owerfelli: It depends - Which JavaScript API are you referring to? The "Unified JavaScript API" which is part of or at least supporting ADF, or a different API, i.e. for server-side scripting?

2017-12-19 16:57:38 GMT <AFaust> For the "Unified JavaScript API" you will absolutely have to use Alfresco 5.2+ to work properly

2017-12-19 17:00:42 GMT <owerfelli> I mean this API https://github.com/Alfresco/alfresco-js-api

2017-12-19 17:00:43 GMT <alfbot> Title: GitHub - Alfresco/alfresco-js-api: This project provides a JavaScript client API into the Alfresco REST API and Activiti REST API. (at github.com)

2017-12-19 17:11:44 GMT <yreg> FYI, owerfelli that's exclusively available for Alfresco 5.2+

2017-12-19 17:12:12 GMT <yreg> some of the features listed are not even available unless you have 5.2.2+ or equiuvalent CE

2017-12-19 17:15:10 GMT <AFaust> And yes, that is the "Unified JavaScript API".

2017-12-19 17:15:50 GMT <AFaust> It is a shame that they really did not care about naming it in a way that avoids confusion with other JavaScript APIs that are availabe...

2017-12-19 17:43:19 GMT <brian-int> does the installation wizard install the alfresco .war and share .war? or just the former?

2017-12-19 17:43:59 GMT <AxelFaust> It installs both, and may even install SOLR if you pick it

2017-12-19 17:50:42 GMT <brian-int> AxelFaust: thanks. is share.war run on demand? how do I know if it's running?

2017-12-19 17:52:21 GMT <AxelFaust> It is run when the service is run - it is one monolithic install.

2017-12-19 17:52:38 GMT <AxelFaust> You should find a share.log file in your install folder alongside the alfresco.log

2017-12-19 17:53:24 GMT <brian-int> AxelFaust: I do, thanks!
