2018-01-09 07:46:40 GMT <yreg> ~later tell nicksmaddog that feature does exist OOTB in Alvex : https://github.com/ITDSystems/alvex
2018-01-09 07:46:40 GMT <alfbot> yreg: The operation succeeded.
2018-01-09 08:56:18 GMT <DarkStar1> morning everyone
2018-01-09 09:19:15 GMT <yreg> Morning everyone
2018-01-09 09:32:16 GMT <bhagyas> are there any known parameters where Alfresco uses java Duration class and its serialisation?
2018-01-09 09:33:17 GMT <bhagyas> ah remembered it, the new trashcleaner
2018-01-09 11:30:24 GMT <Tichodroma> Consider an AbstractWebScript that calls response.getWriter().write(...) and that has no template.
2018-01-09 11:30:46 GMT <Tichodroma> What could cause a "Cannot locate template processor for template ..." error?
2018-01-09 11:30:58 GMT <Tichodroma> it's a WS for Share
2018-01-09 12:02:32 GMT <AFaust> Tichodroma: This sounds familiar....
2018-01-09 12:04:34 GMT <AFaust> It may be the case if some error / exception handling code is triggered that is higher up in the call chain and thus unaware of the non-DeclarativeWebScript nature of the web script...
2018-01-09 12:04:44 GMT <AFaust> And it does not find an error template to render
2018-01-09 12:04:58 GMT <angelborroy> Tichodroma are you trying from Postman or similar?
2018-01-09 12:16:52 GMT <AFaust> yreg: Thanks for reporting ALF-21965 - I was about to prepare a PR for the very same issue (which has been bugging me for a while). Finally, in 6.0 we can have a correct Date to ISO8601 conversion again...
2018-01-09 12:47:22 GMT <yreg> AFaust, urw
2018-01-09 12:56:14 GMT <Tichodroma> AFaust, angelborroy: the error was very simple: the spring bean ID of the controller class did not match the package
2018-01-09 13:22:51 GMT <AFaust> yreg: remember the issue with left-padding some ISO 8601 dates when selecting them from the database to ensure proper sorting?
2018-01-09 13:23:15 GMT <AFaust> Now I have the issue that Joda Time is too stupid to be able to parse these dates...
2018-01-09 13:24:02 GMT <yreg> hehe
2018-01-09 13:30:08 GMT <AFaust> lol - only one 0 less padding to the left and it works...
2018-01-09 13:30:30 GMT <AFaust> So the year can only have 9 digits apparently
2018-01-09 13:31:08 GMT <AFaust> And must be in the range of Long.MIN_VALUE to Long.MAX_VALUE
2018-01-09 13:41:05 GMT <AFaust> Hmmm - I am wondering. That ISO8601 date sorting issue should also affect sorting in TMQs. But I am almost certain it would be rejected as won't fix, because handling such dates is only done by < 10% of customers and nobody else besides me would have complained...

2018-01-09 17:07:12 GMT <brian-int> hi, when installing alfresco via the setup wizard, what is the default postgresql admin username / pw set to?
2018-01-09 17:13:28 GMT <brian-int> I found https://community.alfresco.com/thread/182583-urgent-default-password-db-alfresco but l/p = `alfresco` / `admin` didn't seem to work
2018-01-09 17:13:30 GMT <alfbot> Title: Urgent : default password DB Alfresco | Alfresco Community (at community.alfresco.com)
2018-01-09 17:16:57 GMT <brian-int> ok, n/m, figured it out from the properties file
2018-01-09 21:33:39 GMT <brian-int> on Linux CentOS7 box, is it not possible to symlink a dir and have alfresco's webserver, see the subfolders?
2018-01-09 21:33:49 GMT <brian-int> s/on Linux/on a Linux/
2018-01-09 21:36:22 GMT <brian-int> I have an angular app that is in a dir under /opt/MyApp and I symlinked to it from /opt/alfresco-content-services-community-full/tomcat/webapps/alfresco
2018-01-09 21:37:38 GMT <brian-int> but when I try to bring up the .html file under it, ie: <hostname>:8080/alfresco/<symlinked_folder_name>/<app_name>.html , I just get a 404
2018-01-09 21:38:02 GMT <brian-int> does this violate default apache tomcat access perms?
2018-01-09 23:12:23 GMT <brian-int> ok, was able to achieve this by editing `webapps/alfresco/META-INF/context.xml` and adding `allowLinking="true"` as an attribute in `Context`
2018-01-09 23:18:27 GMT <brian-int> now running into a different issue:
2018-01-09 23:18:34 GMT <brian-int> 1. What is the default `postgres` OS user account password when installed via the wizard?,
2018-01-09 23:19:17 GMT <brian-int> 2. `./alfresco.sh stop` always hangs after displaying current vars and requires ^C to stop and re-run, by which it then claims
2018-01-09 23:19:17 GMT <brian-int> `org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina stopServer
2018-01-09 23:19:17 GMT <brian-int> SEVERE: Could not contact localhost:8005. Tomcat may not be running.
2018-01-09 23:19:17 GMT <brian-int> org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina stopServer
2018-01-09 23:19:17 GMT <brian-int> SEVERE: Catalina.stop:
2018-01-09 23:19:17 GMT <brian-int> java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused (Connection refused)`
2018-01-09 23:19:17 GMT <brian-int> with tomcat eventually signaled via the OS to shutdown and then postgresql not shutting down and requiring a "fast" shutdown
