Daily Log for #alfresco

2018-05-23 06:41:35 GMT <fcorti_> digicat huge numbers indeed. I'm interested in the "Open Source side" of the action. I mean: I often read that Open Source is a must in today's launch of software (in general). What I don't understand well is the "Open Source vs Business" and some models "Open Source vs Legacy technologies". For example: What Open Source can be in a AWS/Azure/Cloud world?

2018-05-23 07:11:49 GMT <yreg> Morning channel

2018-05-23 07:12:21 GMT <yreg> xkahn, can you share the query from yesterday, I am intrigued ...

2018-05-23 07:13:18 GMT <yreg> Also do not forget to warn your users about the eventual consistency, if it is going to SOLR, then it not transactionally consistent + there might be some index error

2018-05-23 07:57:39 GMT <DarkSta__> Morning everyone

2018-05-23 07:58:33 GMT <DarkStar1> yreg: tu va bien?

2018-05-23 07:59:15 GMT <yreg> I'm fine thanks

2018-05-23 07:59:21 GMT <yreg> How about you?

2018-05-23 07:59:29 GMT <yreg> [and your little princess]

2018-05-23 08:38:09 GMT <digcat> ~later tell fcorti its interesting that adobe would rather buy a php based app such as magento, than build there own, or perhaps its for the marketshare, I really dont get the number they paid, you can see already openmage as a fork, in a cloud world, most of the products they use on the cloud are open source, although whats underneath can never be verified so if it is or isnt open source, you cant tell. its whether the innovation

2018-05-23 08:38:09 GMT <alfbot> digcat: The operation succeeded.

2018-05-23 08:38:09 GMT <digcat> keep up on closed source. i think with more providers entering the market offering cloud based services, and using the likes of kubernetes, docker etc, then the platform should be abstracted away, although whether underneath they can still intercept your data etc, i dont know

2018-05-23 08:39:09 GMT <digcat> ~later tell fcorti, i dont know if its possible, a mate of mine just hit sdk3 upgrade issue, seems its outlined in https://community.alfresco.com/blogs/alfresco-premier-services/2018/01/31/migration-of-all-in-one-project-to-sdk-30 but not in official docs, is it worth hooking it to the bottom of sdk 3 page https://docs.alfresco.com/5.2/references/sdk-whats-new.html

2018-05-23 13:39:15 GMT <yreg> Guys has any of you came across this error : https://pastebin.com/xCU8i1i1

2018-05-23 13:39:16 GMT <alfbot> Title: License error - Pastebin.com (at pastebin.com)

2018-05-23 13:39:36 GMT <yreg> I got it following a restart

2018-05-23 13:44:55 GMT <alfbot> digcat: Sent 4 hours and 30 minutes ago: <fcorti> it! Submitted to the Documentation Team.

2018-05-23 13:48:37 GMT <yreg> AFaust, any idea on that stack trace ?

2018-05-23 13:49:27 GMT <AFaust> Didn't check yet since I was not paying attention (working on a customer-provided laptop, so my own just sits on the sideline)

2018-05-23 13:50:14 GMT <AFaust> But that stacktrace looks like a regular issue of parallel jobs / access...

2018-05-23 13:50:37 GMT <AFaust> You wouldn't happen to try and startup two cluster nodes at the same time, would you?

2018-05-23 13:51:07 GMT <angelborroy> ups!

2018-05-23 13:51:08 GMT <angelborroy> https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/browse/REPO-3252

2018-05-23 13:51:21 GMT <angelborroy> Are you using ACS 6.0.0?

2018-05-23 13:53:19 GMT <yreg> possibly

2018-05-23 13:53:45 GMT <AFaust> Muaha

2018-05-23 13:54:01 GMT <yreg> I'll check the utility scripts we are using

2018-05-23 13:54:12 GMT <angelborroy> This is why I left Alfresco Universe…

2018-05-23 13:54:16 GMT <AFaust> They should just remove all license checking / verification. That has to be one of the buggiest parts of the entire codebase...

2018-05-23 13:54:25 GMT <angelborroy> … it looks like upgrading services will be worthy in 2020 :d

2018-05-23 13:55:18 GMT <AFaust> I believe you can still wreck an Enterprise system just by changing the OS-level encoding...

2018-05-23 13:56:25 GMT <yreg> true

2018-05-23 14:00:11 GMT <yreg> AFaust, starting one single node at the time didn't help

2018-05-23 14:00:33 GMT <AFaust> I guess you'd have to remove the lock in the DB manually before trying again...

2018-05-23 14:00:38 GMT <yreg> I am thinking about deleting a line from the DB from the lock DB

2018-05-23 14:01:08 GMT <angelborroy> or you can just re-start database

2018-05-23 14:01:15 GMT * AFaust is glad that - for once - he was faster in typing a suggestion, instead of always taking the most time for being overly detailed...

2018-05-23 14:01:19 GMT <angelborroy> they are logical locks

2018-05-23 14:02:08 GMT <AFaust> angelborroy ? - They are real entries in the table that will not disappear by restarting database...

2018-05-23 14:02:16 GMT <angelborroy> really?

2018-05-23 14:02:37 GMT <angelborroy> Thanks, I didn’t inspect this error in detail...

2018-05-23 14:02:45 GMT <angelborroy> … but I managed some logical locks before

2018-05-23 14:02:48 GMT <angelborroy> good to know

2018-05-23 14:06:14 GMT <yreg> Deleted the entry from alf_lock table, fingers crossed

2018-05-23 14:06:41 GMT * yreg hates the whole AWS QuickStart setup

2018-05-23 14:09:04 GMT <yreg> Arghhhh! Even after deleting the entry from alf_lock this still doesn't work

2018-05-23 14:10:31 GMT * AFaust is looking for his rolodex of "street thugs for hire", because he has a feeling yreg may want to engage in their special service of "telling someone they done f***ed it up in a physical way"....

2018-05-23 14:13:33 GMT <yreg> hehe

2018-05-23 14:37:32 GMT <yreg> AFaust, did you find that list ?

2018-05-23 14:39:36 GMT <AFaust> It's at home, under lock & key, and buried beneath some Valium, stress pillows and other material designed to turn me from feral back to civil...

2018-05-23 15:32:56 GMT <yreg> AFaust, angelborroy, A small update on my issue, it seems I am (was already) beyond the license verification issue once I have executed "update alf_lock set lock_token='not-locked', start_time=0, expiry_time=0 WHERE excl_resource_id = 1;"

2018-05-23 15:33:25 GMT <angelborroy> It makes sense

2018-05-23 15:33:32 GMT <yreg> So deleting the entry did not work, but faking that the lock is gone worked

2018-05-23 15:33:59 GMT <angelborroy> Is it confirmed to affect to ACS 6.0.0?

2018-05-23 15:34:57 GMT <yreg> angelborroy, I am on EE 5.2, the version that ships with AWS Quick start

2018-05-23 15:35:04 GMT <angelborroy> wow

2018-05-23 15:35:16 GMT <yreg> I can confirm the service pack for you if you like

2018-05-23 15:35:26 GMT <angelborroy> nope

2018-05-23 15:35:36 GMT <angelborroy> just to know if it was a new issue or an old one

2018-05-23 15:35:50 GMT <angelborroy> far serious if it was affecting 5.2.x releases

2018-05-23 15:36:17 GMT <angelborroy> this means that no many customers are using 5.2 EE

2018-05-23 15:36:29 GMT <angelborroy> And why Community matters in a product like this

2018-05-23 15:36:55 GMT <angelborroy> I had an internal talk last week on how sales people from Alfresco are simply ignoring added value from the Community

2018-05-23 15:37:38 GMT <yreg> Tell me about it

2018-05-23 15:38:06 GMT <angelborroy> probably it’s my local sales representant...

2018-05-23 15:38:37 GMT <angelborroy> … so nothing to be commented as a “general attitude”

2018-05-23 17:11:55 GMT <marcoaltieri> I am trying to customise the authentication in APS 1.8.1

2018-05-23 17:12:03 GMT <marcoaltieri> as mentioned in the documentation

2018-05-23 17:12:19 GMT <marcoaltieri> https://docs.alfresco.com/process-services1.8/topics/rest_endpoints_security_overrides.html

2018-05-23 17:12:21 GMT <alfbot> Title: REST Endpoints security overrides | Alfresco Documentation (at docs.alfresco.com)

2018-05-23 17:12:40 GMT <marcoaltieri> I thought it was possible just implementing a simple interfac

2018-05-23 17:12:42 GMT <marcoaltieri> interface

2018-05-23 17:14:47 GMT <marcoaltieri> https://codeshare.io/210YY3

2018-05-23 17:14:56 GMT <marcoaltieri> As soon as I add this class

2018-05-23 17:15:14 GMT <marcoaltieri> any call to the API fails with a NullPointerException

2018-05-23 17:15:24 GMT <marcoaltieri> even though my code is never called
