2018-04-11 07:10:10 GMT <yreg> Good morning Channel =

2018-04-11 07:10:28 GMT *** yreg is now known as Guest27135

2018-04-11 08:13:22 GMT <digcat> hey yreg, how are you going,

2018-04-11 08:23:33 GMT <Guest27135> Pretty fine thanks !

2018-04-11 08:24:30 GMT <Guest27135> Just started a new job this week and I am catching up with the new company's culture ...

2018-04-11 08:26:08 GMT <Guest27135> How about you digcat ?

2018-04-11 08:34:11 GMT <digcat> hey not bad, over in Aus at the moment, so coming to the end of my day.

2018-04-11 08:34:34 GMT <digcat> yeah i caught a conversation about whether you were still involved with alfresco installs or not,

2018-04-11 08:34:43 GMT <digcat> so guessing thats a yes :)

2018-04-11 08:34:56 GMT <digcat> hope the new job is going well

2018-04-11 08:39:17 GMT <MorganP> Hello everybody

2018-04-11 08:47:43 GMT <Guest27135> It's promising, looks good so far but very different from what I am used to (I only worked for startups/relatively small companies, so moving on to a big multinational is a very big jump, at least on the company culture side of things...)

2018-04-11 09:39:00 GMT <fcorti_> fcorti

2018-04-11 10:20:21 GMT <hi-ko> Guest27135: so yreg we are curious about your new company ;-)

2018-04-11 13:21:33 GMT <douglascrp> morning guys

2018-04-11 13:21:55 GMT <douglascrp> I am trying to connect to one of my servers using the android app, but it is not working

2018-04-11 13:22:09 GMT <douglascrp> in this case, the server is using SSL with a letsencrypt certificate

2018-04-11 13:22:16 GMT <douglascrp> in that server, the connection is not possible

2018-04-11 13:22:29 GMT <douglascrp> but if I use the same app against a non SSL server, it works perfectly

2018-04-11 13:22:33 GMT <douglascrp> any idea or tips on this?

2018-04-11 13:23:31 GMT <angelborroy> douglascrp did you read that https://angelborroy.wordpress.com/2017/12/15/ssl-issues-and-how-to-debug-ios-app-for-alfresco/

2018-04-11 13:23:32 GMT <angelborroy> ?

2018-04-11 13:23:32 GMT <alfbot> Title: SSL issues and how to debug iOS App for Alfresco | Programming and So (at angelborroy.wordpress.com)

2018-04-11 13:24:03 GMT <douglascrp> angelborroy, yes, I read that, but it was when you published it... let me review it, and see if it applies for android too

2018-04-11 13:24:23 GMT <angelborroy> in my case it was a bad HTTPs configuration

2018-04-11 13:24:49 GMT <angelborroy> RSA and AES should be upgraded

2018-04-11 13:26:48 GMT <douglascrp> angelborroy, yes, I got the point

2018-04-11 13:27:00 GMT <douglascrp> ok, let me see if I can change something in there

2018-04-11 13:27:26 GMT <douglascrp> in order to deploy the SSL certificate, I used the certbot utility, using default optoins

2018-04-11 13:27:28 GMT <douglascrp> options

2018-04-11 13:27:49 GMT <douglascrp> I know about a ecm4u project with some configuration... I am going to read it and try to figure out what I can change

2018-04-11 13:27:51 GMT <angelborroy_> did you try to connect from Chrome?

2018-04-11 13:30:20 GMT <douglascrp> angelborroy_, nope... let me try

2018-04-11 13:32:05 GMT <douglascrp> angelborroy_, it works on chrome in this android phone

2018-04-11 13:32:18 GMT <douglascrp> using https and connection into alfresco (not share)

2018-04-11 13:35:01 GMT <douglascrp> angelborroy, have you changed something related with this? https://www.keensoft.es/en/configuring-alfresco-ssl-by-using-lets-encrypt/

2018-04-11 13:35:08 GMT <douglascrp> I am using apache here too

2018-04-11 13:58:26 GMT <douglascrp> angelborroy, I tried some combinations, but nothing solved the problem

2018-04-11 13:58:46 GMT <douglascrp> I am going to do what you did... download the source code and try to debug it locally

2018-04-11 13:58:50 GMT <douglascrp> thanks for the idea

2018-04-11 14:37:52 GMT *** yreg is now known as Guest6534

2018-04-11 14:38:54 GMT <Guest6534> Guys, any one familiar with the new rest api that expose auditing information ?

2018-04-11 14:39:23 GMT <Guest6534> "GET /nodes/{nodeId}/audit-entries: List audit entries for a node" is in particular intresting

2018-04-11 14:39:36 GMT <angelborroy> upgrading from 1.X to 2.X is insane

2018-04-11 14:39:38 GMT <angelborroy> IMO

2018-04-11 14:40:13 GMT <Guest6534> not sure if that really relies on the UUID or actually on the xpath behind

2018-04-11 14:40:51 GMT <Guest6534> if it is the first case then I wonder where is the link made

2018-04-11 14:42:00 GMT <Guest6534> if it is the latter, then I wonder how did that REST call make it to API, as the path is volatile and nodes can easily change/swap paths on move for instance

2018-04-11 14:43:14 GMT <Guest6534> plus not all audit applications are supposed to have paths, even the alfresco-access one, can be customized (in theory) to loose the path and/or record other context info (UUID for instance)

2018-04-11 14:44:09 GMT <Guest6534> fcorti: could you shed some light on this ?

2018-04-11 14:44:23 GMT <angelborroy> yreg there is a TTL live

2018-04-11 14:44:37 GMT <Guest6534> angelborroy: oh sorry, wasn't aware of that

2018-04-11 14:46:34 GMT <angelborroy> I was late, but how SSL and proxy is solved?

2018-04-11 14:46:51 GMT <angelborroy> Nginx, Apache, any clusterisation in front (for Node)?

2018-04-11 14:47:35 GMT <fcorti> Asking soon

2018-04-11 14:48:24 GMT <angelborroy> frontend clustering (specifically)

2018-04-11 14:52:24 GMT <angelborroy> 6+ years fronted developer experiece...

2018-04-11 14:52:29 GMT <angelborroy> wow

2018-04-11 14:52:39 GMT <angelborroy> and he said, “no, not much experience on this"

2018-04-11 14:54:23 GMT <Guest6534> Judging by the feedback I see, it looks like an awesome session will definitely check it out later

2018-04-11 14:54:36 GMT <angelborroy> not so awesome for me...

2018-04-11 14:54:41 GMT <angelborroy> … but yes, you can take a look

2018-04-11 14:55:34 GMT <Guest6534> angelborroy: true, with 6+ years of front end experience, one can develop a lot of instincts that would come handy even when not familiarized with a certain framework

2018-04-11 14:56:08 GMT <angelborroy> and they are creating a new AOS module different from ours

2018-04-11 14:56:22 GMT <angelborroy> this is what happens with Angular

2018-04-11 14:57:21 GMT <Guest6534> Any idea on why they did so ?

2018-04-11 14:57:37 GMT <angelborroy> and it’s closed

2018-04-11 14:57:50 GMT <angelborroy> a small application like ACA (but reduced)

2018-04-11 14:58:40 GMT <Guest6534> Ok, so the reason would be to be able bill it to clients as proprietary addon

2018-04-11 14:58:52 GMT <angelborroy> sure

2018-04-11 14:58:57 GMT <angelborroy> in-cre-di-ble

2018-04-11 15:02:07 GMT <Guest6534> angelborroy: related to our discussion from yesterday about faceted search, I found multiple components around that feature within alfresco ng components

2018-04-11 15:02:40 GMT <Guest6534> (and documentation / component showcase or watever they call it)

2018-04-11 15:03:15 GMT <Guest6534> so I assume the feature is there, it just didn't make it to ACA yet ;-)

2018-04-11 15:59:59 GMT <mbui> Anyone encountered issue where cookies in Alfresco is missing the secure flag on JSESSIONID and how to fix it?

2018-04-11 16:01:25 GMT <Guest6534> fcorti: no need to investigate my question

2018-04-11 16:02:01 GMT <Guest6534> I went through code and tracked it by the issue key from the swagger yaml file blame

2018-04-11 16:02:51 GMT <Guest6534> it seems the whole api relies on/is hard coded for alfresco-access

2018-04-11 16:03:27 GMT <Guest6534> and is converting UUID to path before performing the search (which is a bit sloppy IMHO)

2018-04-11 16:04:03 GMT <Guest6534> I know it's a quick win for being able to expose audit data with alfresco js api / ADF

2018-04-11 16:04:57 GMT <Guest6534> but that wouldn't make enough excuse for the current implementation, at least not with the current docs on that api call

2018-04-11 16:05:46 GMT * AxelFaust is trying to suppress a groan

2018-04-11 16:06:24 GMT <Guest6534> AxelFaust: are you referring to the mess I was talking about ?

2018-04-11 16:06:33 GMT <AxelFaust> Yep

2018-04-11 16:07:06 GMT <AxelFaust> You had me on "hard coded for alfresco-access"

2018-04-11 16:07:38 GMT <Guest6534> AxelFaust: what about it relying on the path as well?

2018-04-11 16:07:59 GMT <AxelFaust> Depends on what kind of path you are referring to there...

2018-04-11 16:08:04 GMT <Guest6534> and not filtering later by node UUID

2018-04-11 16:08:11 GMT <Guest6534> prefixed path

2018-04-11 16:08:29 GMT <Guest6534> that one that changes upon renames / moves

2018-04-11 16:08:30 GMT <AxelFaust> Since I don't follow (anything) with regards to ADF / js API, I am not up-to-date on the latest weirdness

2018-04-11 16:08:43 GMT <AxelFaust> You mean filtering the data based on the node path?

2018-04-11 16:08:49 GMT <AxelFaust> In the UI / API?

2018-04-11 16:09:06 GMT <Guest6534> the API takes a node UUID as a parameter

2018-04-11 16:09:26 GMT <Guest6534> calculates a prefixed path, then launches an audit query

2018-04-11 16:09:52 GMT <Guest6534> AxelFaust: https://github.com/Alfresco/alfresco-remote-api/blob/dbe4c07bd6c13ecd5992e50366c3a08f99e70647/src/main/java/org/alfresco/rest/api/impl/AuditImpl.java#L768

2018-04-11 16:10:43 GMT <AxelFaust> That is......

2018-04-11 16:10:45 GMT <AxelFaust> "smart"??

2018-04-11 16:10:52 GMT * AxelFaust fails to suppress a goran

2018-04-11 16:10:56 GMT * AxelFaust fails to suppress a groan

2018-04-11 16:11:02 GMT <Guest6534> I would say naive

2018-04-11 16:11:17 GMT <AxelFaust> Or, "sad"....

2018-04-11 16:11:41 GMT <Guest6534> fcorti: I hate to see that make it into a GA, what should I do ?

2018-04-11 16:12:51 GMT <AxelFaust> Travel a few years into the past and replace certain people at Alfresco?

2018-04-11 16:13:50 GMT <AxelFaust> So you could try to foster a better culture around the development of new features...

2018-04-11 16:29:47 GMT <Guest6534> AxelFaust, fcorti https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/browse/REPO-1786?focusedCommentId=564193&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels%3Acomment-tabpanel#comment-564193

2018-04-11 16:37:26 GMT <Guest6534> AxelFaust Just noticed from fixed version in jira that this is already present in 5.2.2 Enterprise :facepalm:
