2018-04-10 01:20:05 GMT <alfbot> digcat: The operation succeeded.

2018-04-10 06:10:43 GMT <alfbot> bhagyas: Sent 10 hours and 50 minutes ago: <digcat> interesting to hear alfresco's position on gdpr, seems that other solutions have a more supportive stance on gdpr, it seems alfresco's position is only a proprietary solution from a partner. surely this leaves us in the same boat as any closed source offering.

2018-04-10 08:46:00 GMT <bhuvana> hi all

2018-04-10 08:46:38 GMT <bhuvana> i need to print alert message while workflow aprove or reject

2018-04-10 08:46:51 GMT <bhuvana> can any one pls help me

2018-04-10 08:47:15 GMT <bhuvana> pls referer any link

2018-04-10 08:48:04 GMT <AFaust> First, please provide a bit more detailed explanation of your request. What do you mean by "alert message"?

2018-04-10 08:48:18 GMT <AFaust> Email, web UI event, log message??

2018-04-10 08:53:22 GMT <bhuvana> web ui event like "your workflow process is approving please wait!!!"

2018-04-10 08:53:38 GMT <AFaust> Are you using the default Share UI?

2018-04-10 08:53:46 GMT <bhuvana> yes

2018-04-10 08:54:06 GMT <AFaust> Then that is not easily possible and there are no ready-to-use links / documentation for that.

2018-04-10 08:54:37 GMT <AFaust> The action to transition a workflow from one state to another is highly generic and not aware of your specific process, so it cannot show a process specific message

2018-04-10 08:54:50 GMT <AFaust> You'd have to patch Alfresco source code for that..

2018-04-10 08:55:56 GMT <AFaust> It is possible, and I have done so in at least one customer project (years ago), but I don't have any code to share (no longer have the code and wouldn't be allowed to share customer code anyway)

2018-04-10 08:58:44 GMT <bhuvana> How to get the alfresco source code into IDE

2018-04-10 08:58:52 GMT <AFaust> Checkout + import

2018-04-10 09:07:32 GMT <twen> Hello

2018-04-10 09:10:21 GMT <Tushar> holla!

2018-04-10 09:12:14 GMT <Tushar> can anyone suggest me is i have 5 instances on one server

2018-04-10 09:12:40 GMT <Tushar> and i have to set inbound email to each one

2018-04-10 09:12:58 GMT <Tushar> but port binding is done only in one instance

2018-04-10 09:14:02 GMT <Guest201564> Tushar: you can bind on a different port (other than the standard 25)

2018-04-10 09:14:21 GMT <Guest201564> that is if you are connecting directly to your Alfresco as SMTP server

2018-04-10 09:15:58 GMT <Tushar> but it won't recive emails if i bind it to other than 25

2018-04-10 09:16:44 GMT <Guest201564> but if you are using an mx entry for your domain and would like emails incoming from the internet to land into your alfresco, you would probably need to have multiple IPs (one per alfresco instance and handle ports redirects so that port 25 of each IP is rooted to the appropriate instance)

2018-04-10 09:20:07 GMT <Tushar> i thought of a work around in this tell me if it is feasable to make a seprate email server amd onve the email is recived update that email to respective repository through rest api

2018-04-10 09:34:23 GMT <Guest201564> I suppose that should be possible to achieve, probably not the easiest solution though

2018-04-10 09:35:14 GMT <Guest201564> Tushar: are your users sending emails directly into alfresco (as in pointing to the alfresco server as SMTP server) or are they using some internet SMTP server ?

2018-04-10 09:36:49 GMT <Loftux> If you don't want thumbnails in Share details view, is there any other way than to override renderCellThumbnail in documentlist-view-detailed.js ?

2018-04-10 09:37:05 GMT <Loftux> (want just an icon instead)

2018-04-10 09:37:39 GMT <Tushar> no they are sending directly

2018-04-10 09:38:10 GMT <Tushar> is there a way to use some internet SMTP server

2018-04-10 10:38:23 GMT <Tushar> hi loftux

2018-04-10 10:38:57 GMT <Tushar> did you try putting "system.thumbnail.generate=false" in alfresco-global.properties

2018-04-10 10:38:57 GMT <Tushar> ?

2018-04-10 10:39:06 GMT <Tushar> maybe that can help

2018-04-10 10:41:57 GMT <Loftux> Tushar: That will help, but to much. It also turns off pdf previews (since they are a thumbnail tehcnically). Doing the override now.

2018-04-10 10:45:56 GMT <Guest201564> Tushar: yes there is a way to do that

2018-04-10 10:46:21 GMT <Tushar> Loftux i fairly belive it won't affect pdf preview

2018-04-10 10:46:47 GMT <Guest201564> but since you are not doing that just yet, you should be able to use whatever port you like as long as it is exposed in the server (ie no firewall/iptable rules are blocking them)

2018-04-10 10:48:04 GMT <Tushar> if i change the port from 25 to anything else for inbound email, it does not recive emails then

2018-04-10 10:48:05 GMT <Guest201564> Loftux: I suspect that would only prevent the generation of new thumbnails, existing ones will still be rendered

2018-04-10 10:48:36 GMT <Guest201564> Tushar: You need to configure the client to point to that new port instead of the default 25

2018-04-10 10:49:37 GMT <Tushar> okay

2018-04-10 10:49:57 GMT <Tushar> thank you so much i'll try this approach

2018-04-10 10:51:14 GMT <Loftux> Tushar: I wrote part of the pdf viewer, and the way to get a pdf representation of for example an ms word file is to call the thumbnail api. So turn it off completely will have that effect. Thumbnails are just not the small thumbnails, all document library views use different sizes of "thumbnails".

2018-04-10 11:00:03 GMT <Guest201564> Loftux: if there is a way to do it, it would probably involve overriding a bean here : https://github.com/Alfresco/alfresco-repository/blob/27d9cd63ab141f67b0fc7f493ac937f50bb51705/src/main/resources/alfresco/thumbnail-service-context.xml

2018-04-10 11:00:36 GMT <Guest201564> and removing one of the thumbnails registered there

2018-04-10 11:01:02 GMT <Loftux> I'm overriding the prototype Alfresco.DocumentListViewRenderer.prototype.renderCellThumbnail = function …

2018-04-10 11:01:24 GMT <Loftux> So thumbnails will still be there if needed, just prefer the icons instead.

2018-04-10 11:01:35 GMT <Guest201564> makes sence

2018-04-10 12:05:30 GMT <douglascrp> morning

2018-04-10 12:13:46 GMT <Tushar> hi douglascrp

2018-04-10 12:14:50 GMT <Tushar> can you please tell me how can i improve the json output in share for the version differnce project

2018-04-10 12:31:10 GMT <Guest21523> Tushar: elaborate

2018-04-10 12:33:07 GMT <Sumit> Hi, https://docs.alfresco.com/5.0/tasks/aos-config-nonSSL.html informs us for mac os? What to change in windows registry to make "Edit Online" working in a non-ssl enviornment?

2018-04-10 12:39:19 GMT <Guest21523> fcorti: can you ask around on when we should expect the next GA of APS ?

2018-04-10 12:39:55 GMT <Guest21523> Q2/Q3 2018 ? later ?

2018-04-10 12:40:10 GMT <Guest21523> and if there will be an EA program for it

2018-04-10 13:14:01 GMT <mbui> Anyone encountered issues with Alfresco on mobile working on Android but fails with authentication on iOS?

2018-04-10 13:28:14 GMT <Guest21523> mbui: there are few known issues

2018-04-10 13:28:20 GMT <Guest21523> try googling them

2018-04-10 13:28:57 GMT <kkore> can we integrate digital sign in alfresco at the time of login.....

2018-04-10 13:29:19 GMT <Guest21523> also I think angelborroy has a encountered a tricky one not that long ago which was only solved by rebuilding the app and disabling some severe security check or something

2018-04-10 13:29:31 GMT <Guest21523> can't remember any more

2018-04-10 13:29:59 GMT <Guest21523> kkore: you mean login with eID card ?

2018-04-10 13:31:03 GMT <Guest21523> technically it should be possible to extend alfresco to support that as long as your users web-browser supports it

2018-04-10 13:33:46 GMT <fcorti> Hi Guest21523. APS 2.0 is expected to be released after summer. Yes, it is supposed to have a Early Access Program (don't know if it will be public).

2018-04-10 13:34:13 GMT <kkore> haa eID card or with digital sign pass after login submit

2018-04-10 13:36:19 GMT <Guest21523> Thanks Francesco !

2018-04-10 13:36:57 GMT <angelborroy> mbui In my case, with iOS the problem was with TSL requirements

2018-04-10 13:38:14 GMT <angelborroy> kkore we integrated electronic certificate login in Alfreco some time ago

2018-04-10 13:38:32 GMT <angelborroy> kkore you have to implement an external authentication subsystem

2018-04-10 13:40:05 GMT <mbui> angelborrow: Thanks, i'll give that a check.

2018-04-10 13:40:36 GMT <kkore> I am using LDAP for authentication

2018-04-10 13:41:23 GMT <angelborroy> kkore sorry, are you talking to me?

2018-04-10 13:42:13 GMT <kkore> angelborroy: with you only

2018-04-10 13:42:32 GMT <angelborroy> ok

2018-04-10 13:42:49 GMT <angelborroy> so you want to integrate electronic signature to perform a login in Alfresco, right?

2018-04-10 13:43:04 GMT <kkore> yes exactly

2018-04-10 13:43:35 GMT <angelborroy> you have to implement Alfresco external authentication subsystem in the repo part

2018-04-10 13:43:44 GMT <angelborroy> And overwrite login page in Share part

2018-04-10 13:44:15 GMT <angelborroy> For the repo: verify the signature from Share and extract from certificate properties the ID you need to identify the user

2018-04-10 13:44:37 GMT <angelborroy> For the share: integrate a client signature tool to perform a signature on a bait text

2018-04-10 13:45:28 GMT <Guest21523> Does anyone know if we do already have faceted search in ADF ?

2018-04-10 13:45:52 GMT <angelborroy> Guest21523 (or yreg) I guess no

2018-04-10 13:46:01 GMT <Guest21523> indeed

2018-04-10 13:47:40 GMT <angelborroy> why?

2018-04-10 13:47:59 GMT <kkore> angelborroy: overwrite login page which should look like same which is having means in terms of username,pass or we need any other extra parameters

2018-04-10 13:48:53 GMT <angelborroy> kkore Usually we include a hidden text called “bait” and a combo box with client electronic cerfificates from user machine

2018-04-10 13:48:54 GMT <Guest21523> You guessing my name right :-D

2018-04-10 13:48:59 GMT <angelborroy> :-P

2018-04-10 13:49:30 GMT <angelborroy> kkore Additionally we include a “Login” button that in fact perform an electronic signature on the “bait” and send it to the repository

2018-04-10 13:51:19 GMT <angelborroy> well deserved!

2018-04-10 13:52:00 GMT <Guest21523> You are referring to the one about docx4j and alfresco for generating word documents out of word templates right ?

2018-04-10 13:52:04 GMT <kkore> angelborroy I will try to implement it

2018-04-10 14:43:59 GMT <Guest21523> AxelFaust: I heared you talking once on multi-criteria audit query

2018-04-10 14:44:18 GMT <AxelFaust> yeah...

2018-04-10 14:44:25 GMT <Guest21523> have you eventually implemented that in some addon ?

2018-04-10 14:45:04 GMT <AxelFaust> I had implemented it in a PRODYNA library which was/is being used for at least one customer that I now have taken over after leaving them (though the IP rights would still be with PRODYNA)

2018-04-10 14:46:06 GMT <AxelFaust> It should not be a problem to effectively re-implement it as part of my Acosix alfresco-audit addon (already considered this for the long-term plan)

2018-04-10 14:46:37 GMT <Guest21523> right, thanks

2018-04-10 20:08:27 GMT <qwebirc41699> is there a clean way to override the context file of a subsystem ?

2018-04-10 20:08:43 GMT <qwebirc41699> I need to customise a class that is used in common-ldap-context.xml

2018-04-10 20:24:37 GMT <AFaust> qwebirc41699: Yes, using the extension path for subsystems, i.e. alfresco/extension/subsystems/Authentication/ldap(-ad)/<instanceId>/*-context.xml
