Daily Log for #alfresco

2018-04-17 00:21:32 GMT <sgraham_> im trying to setup libpam_mount to connect to my alfresco server with smb.

2018-04-17 00:22:11 GMT <sgraham_> i can connect with like nautilus, nemo, but i want it to mount up with pam and connect it as a device.

2018-04-17 00:22:39 GMT <sgraham_> then it becomes available to applications like...google chrome.

2018-04-17 00:23:33 GMT <sgraham_> I would prefer to use davfs but automounting that to a dir in the user space is a maintenance nightmare.

2018-04-17 00:24:10 GMT <sgraham_> libpam_mount i can set up in etc for all users and pam just hands it the credentials of the loged in user.

2018-04-17 00:52:42 GMT <sgraham_> i keep getting this error

2018-04-17 00:52:43 GMT <sgraham_> HXproc_run_async: smbmount: No such file or directory

2018-04-17 00:56:05 GMT <sgraham_> this is the connection string

2018-04-17 00:56:08 GMT <sgraham_> <volume fstype="smbfs" server="" path="alfresco" mountpoint="/home/%(USER)/Alfresco" options="workgroup=workgroup,uid=%(USER),dir_mode=0700,file_mode=700,nosuid,nodev" />

2018-04-17 07:23:54 GMT <hiten> Hi Guys

2018-04-17 07:24:14 GMT <hiten> Need some help regarding webscript having guest access

2018-04-17 07:25:12 GMT <hiten> I am using an addon for folder share

2018-04-17 07:25:58 GMT <hiten> where the action gives Consumer access to Guest user and then a link is generated that internally call the webscript having guest access

2018-04-17 07:26:18 GMT <hiten> https://www.abc.cf/alfresco/s/eu/xfel/make-public/doclist?nodeRef=workspace://SpacesStore/afe8a99a-c561-4908-841a-590b8b76aa2f&guest=true

2018-04-17 07:26:40 GMT <hiten> this is the url for the page that shows content of the folder shared

2018-04-17 07:27:07 GMT <hiten> sorry - this is the webscript url that fetches content of the folder shared

2018-04-17 07:27:27 GMT <hiten> I have also made sure that the desc file has authentication set to guest

2018-04-17 07:27:40 GMT <hiten> bt still when I hit the url I am asked for authentication

2018-04-17 07:28:12 GMT <hiten> surprisingly this does not happen in my local

2018-04-17 07:31:15 GMT <hiten> please point me out why this is happening

2018-04-17 07:31:34 GMT <hiten> I am using Alfresco CE 5.2 behind an Apache server

2018-04-17 08:00:19 GMT *** angelborroy_ is now known as angelborroy

2018-04-17 08:12:31 GMT <hiten> has alfresco removed access for guest=true access ??

2018-04-17 08:12:40 GMT <alfbot> Title: ?guest=true removed | Alfresco Community (at community.alfresco.com)

2018-04-17 08:19:07 GMT <DarkStar1> Morning everyone

2018-04-17 08:36:25 GMT <MarkTielemans> In Alfresco 5.1, I encounter an issue where calling the formget webscript multiple times within a few seconds (i.e. switching search forms), causes the repo to respond 401 and the Kerberos settings to retry, resulting in an infinite loop.

2018-04-17 08:37:01 GMT <MarkTielemans> Switching out the repo for 5.2 resolves the issue, but I don´t want to run an unsupported stack and also don´t want to upgrade to 5.2 right now.. Any idea where I might find how this was solved?

2018-04-17 09:05:01 GMT <russin> hi all

2018-04-17 09:06:26 GMT <russin> while working with workflow, onclick of approve button i want to show pop-up message

2018-04-17 09:06:40 GMT <russin> can anyone suggest me.

2018-04-17 09:08:57 GMT <twen> hello

2018-04-17 09:25:23 GMT <yreg> russin, as in a confirmation popup ?

2018-04-17 09:33:18 GMT <russin> yes

2018-04-17 09:34:29 GMT <yreg> russin, and you are doing embedded workflows, right ?

2018-04-17 09:34:51 GMT <yreg> As in embedded activity in Alfresco Community Edition ?

2018-04-17 09:39:32 GMT <russin> i didn't get you

2018-04-17 09:39:59 GMT <russin> is it you are asking for default or custom workflow?

2018-04-17 09:40:25 GMT <russin> where as we are using our custom workflow.

2018-04-17 09:43:42 GMT <yreg> I am asking if you are using Alfresco the ECM and the embedded BPM component there, or Alfresco Process services the standalone BPM solution ?

2018-04-17 09:45:34 GMT <russin> we are using alfresco the ECM and the embedded BPM component

2018-04-17 09:46:39 GMT <yreg> Alright, then you need to duplicate the transitions.ftl form-control in a share extension and have the custom one hold the logic for opening the pop up instead of performing the actual action

2018-04-17 09:47:16 GMT <yreg> Then of course, you would need to update the form-config for the concerned task to use the custom transition.ftl instead of the OOTB one

2018-04-17 09:52:31 GMT <russin> we already tried, but it is displaying popup message onload of page.

2018-04-17 09:52:47 GMT <russin> we need on approve button click

2018-04-17 10:10:25 GMT <yreg> russin, could you share a snippet ? Using pastern or alike ?

2018-04-17 10:11:09 GMT <yreg> fcorti, I was wondering if APS does support SAML or not, do you have an idea ?

2018-04-17 10:11:34 GMT <yreg> Also do we have a timeline for 2.0 EA/GA ?

2018-04-17 10:25:51 GMT <fcorti> Hello yreg, which version?

2018-04-17 10:26:00 GMT <fcorti> APS 1.8 does not support it.

2018-04-17 10:26:25 GMT <fcorti> Once Keycloak will be introduced... it will be an option.

2018-04-17 10:26:58 GMT <fcorti> It is planned to be included for APS 2.x (planned to be released in autumn 2018) powered by Activiti 7.

2018-04-17 10:27:48 GMT <fcorti> Maybe also APS 1.9 will have the keycloak integration (and SAML is supported by keycloak)

2018-04-17 10:31:46 GMT <AFaust> fcorti: I am wondering - has there ever been a comprehensive announcement of APS 2.x features? I mean Activiti 7 was talked about at DevCon, but I don't remember any APS 2.x session... Would be interesting i.e. to know if you will be forcing customers towards the ADF-based client introduced in 1.8...

2018-04-17 10:32:08 GMT <hiten> Hello All

2018-04-17 10:32:25 GMT <hiten> request you to please have look at my query

2018-04-17 10:32:30 GMT <hiten> https://community.alfresco.com/message/831176-webscript-with-guest-access-requiring-authentication

2018-04-17 10:32:32 GMT <alfbot> Title: Webscript with guest access requiring authentic... | Alfresco Community (at community.alfresco.com)

2018-04-17 10:33:23 GMT <fcorti> AFaust fair question. We are planning OH and TTL on this but no confirmation from the teams until now. We were planning the OH with DougJ and Mauricio the 27th of Apr bu it is not confirmed yet.

2018-04-17 10:33:35 GMT <AFaust> hiten: You just filed that an hour ago - give it some time so that people had a chance to look at it naturally

2018-04-17 10:40:03 GMT <russin> yreg, please check link https://pastebin.com/2iF2k1St. and please suggest the form.mode value

2018-04-17 10:59:34 GMT <yreg> Alfbot since

2018-04-17 10:59:34 GMT <alfbot> yreg: <AFaust> hiten: You just filed that an hour ago - give it some time so that people had a chance to look at it naturally and <russin> yreg, please check link https://pastebin.com/2iF2k1St. and please suggest the form.mode value

2018-04-17 11:01:12 GMT <yreg> russin, of course that would not work, as the alert is setup to run on document load

2018-04-17 11:01:53 GMT <yreg> In order to have it shown appropriately upon button click you need to hook it properly to the right event of the button

2018-04-17 11:03:55 GMT <yreg> For that you would probably need to extend the ootb Alfresco.Transitions ....

2018-04-17 11:04:23 GMT <yreg> fcorti, thank you for these insights

2018-04-17 11:25:37 GMT <fcorti> yreg, feel free to ask

2018-04-17 11:34:24 GMT <ayushi> hi all

2018-04-17 11:36:22 GMT <ayushi> I am calling a repo webscript having guest authentication in the following way

2018-04-17 11:36:25 GMT <ayushi> var requestUrl = window.location.protocol + "//" + window.location.host + "/alfresco/s/eu/xfel/make-public/doclist?nodeRef=" + this.options.nodeRef + "&guest=true";

2018-04-17 11:37:42 GMT <ayushi> the webscript is called but it prompts the user to provide the authentication(username and password)

2018-04-17 11:38:30 GMT <ayushi> I am not able able to figure out why the webscript is asking the user for authentication

2018-04-17 11:38:41 GMT <ayushi> any help would be greatly appreciated

2018-04-17 13:13:54 GMT <marcoaltieri> I would like to add the "share connector" to an all-in-one build

2018-04-17 13:14:27 GMT <marcoaltieri> It should be easy to add an amp to the build but I do not find in the maven repository

2018-04-17 13:14:47 GMT <marcoaltieri> the "group id", "artifact id" and version

2018-04-17 13:15:16 GMT <marcoaltieri> for the share-connector

2018-04-17 13:15:26 GMT <angelborroy> share-connector is enterprise only

2018-04-17 13:15:32 GMT <angelborroy> have you an enterprise account?

2018-04-17 13:15:44 GMT *** kpatticha is now known as kpatticha|mtg

2018-04-17 13:20:02 GMT <marcoaltieri> yes

2018-04-17 13:20:24 GMT <marcoaltieri> yes, my company has an OEM agreement with Alfresco

2018-04-17 13:27:07 GMT <angelborroy> ah, ok

2018-04-17 13:27:29 GMT <angelborroy> so you have to can ask for a user by using support

2018-04-17 13:27:51 GMT <angelborroy> if you have your user yet, then you can ask for project repository also at support

2018-04-17 13:29:32 GMT <marcoaltieri> I have access to the enterprise maven repository

2018-04-17 13:29:54 GMT <angelborroy> ok, just open a ticket at support to ask where the repo is for share-connector

2018-04-17 13:30:05 GMT <marcoaltieri> Ok. Thanks

2018-04-17 13:37:40 GMT *** kpatticha|mtg is now known as kpatticha

2018-04-17 14:25:03 GMT <fcorti> hi marcoaltieri, be aware that the share-connector should be replaced with a different approach as soon as possible. Instead of Share->ACS->APS, something like APP managing stuff on top of ACS and APS. Just a heads up. :-)
