Daily Log for #alfresco

2018-05-25 05:48:04 GMT <twen> Happy GDPR day

2018-05-25 07:19:16 GMT <yreg> Morning

2018-05-25 07:23:41 GMT <Loftux> yreg: Just noticed your question since yesterday about nginx, maybe you got you answer. But having an upstream use https shouldn't be a problem. Here is the basic nginx conf I use https://github.com/loftuxab/alfresco-ubuntu-install/tree/master/nginx.

2018-05-25 07:25:46 GMT <yreg> Loftux, When I tunnel port 80 from the server using SSH to my localhost (or when I use curl from the remote server) it is working, but for some reason, cloudflare is blocking the traffic to those upstreams, that's how far I got with my issue

2018-05-25 07:32:11 GMT <Loftux> yreg: That is not something that I've tried, cant help out there

2018-05-25 07:32:54 GMT <yreg> I know, but It took me a while to find out that was the problem

2018-05-25 07:33:03 GMT <yreg> Thanks for your assistance though :)

2018-05-25 07:42:18 GMT <Loftux> AOS: Does it support adding non-MS Office file such as a PDF using Windows Explorer and mapped (published via AD policy) Alfresco folder?

2018-05-25 07:42:45 GMT <Loftux> Customer claims it used to work, I thought you could only do office files

2018-05-25 07:44:17 GMT <Loftux> (finally getting rid of CIFS shit, now AOS gives you all sorts of problems with authentication, security zones, different config for different office apps etc) :(

2018-05-25 07:53:51 GMT <yreg> Loftux, I know it can be used for other office document formats than the ones supported by Alfresco OOTB

2018-05-25 07:55:34 GMT <yreg> AFAIK, it is using a similar webdav dialect to the one from Sharepoint in order to automatically checkout/in documents upon particular requests.. so my guess goes, if the app support online editing in Sharepoint, there is high chances of it supporting it alfresco

2018-05-25 07:57:27 GMT *** angelborroy_ is now known as angelborroy

2018-05-25 08:03:51 GMT <bhagyas> Has anyone used Alfresco Maven SDK 3 for building a subsystem?

2018-05-25 08:50:31 GMT <AFaust> ~later tell angelborroy: In case you are interested, someone you talked to yesterday on IRC about Azure + non-tenant-aware CachingContentStore has followed up with a "question issue" in my addon: https://github.com/Acosix/alfresco-simple-content-stores/issues/14#issuecomment-391986343

2018-05-25 08:50:31 GMT <alfbot> AFaust: The operation succeeded.

2018-05-25 08:52:07 GMT <AFaust> Loftux: I too have a customer with some issues using PDF via AOS mapped as network drive. For them it depends heavily on the PDF tool being used and the Windows patch level of the client, since all this network drive mapping is based on the Windows HTTP service...

2018-05-25 08:53:08 GMT <AFaust> I had to investigate quite a few HTTP traces to tell them that "sometimes, the client just sends incorrectly resolved URLs"...

2018-05-25 09:05:52 GMT <angelborroy> Thanks AFaust

2018-05-25 09:06:06 GMT <angelborroy> nice response, always learning a lot from you ;-)

2018-05-25 09:59:13 GMT <yreg> bhagyas, I have seen and issue you logged about that .. is there something I need to know ?

2018-05-25 09:59:39 GMT <yreg> (I am trying to add a subsystem in an integration project using SDK 3.0 right now)

2018-05-25 10:21:40 GMT *** Guest16253 is now known as Kater

2018-05-25 11:24:46 GMT <bhagyas> yreg: SDK 3 is garbage

2018-05-25 11:24:57 GMT <bhagyas> and whoever made that should eat it, I guess

2018-05-25 11:26:16 GMT <yreg> I meant is there any known issues with subsystems and SDK 3 I should be aware of since I am developing a custom user sync subsystem using SDK 3 at the moment

2018-05-25 11:27:35 GMT <yreg> ~since

2018-05-25 11:27:35 GMT <alfbot> yreg: Either yreg didn't leave, or no messages were sent while yreg was gone.

2018-05-25 11:29:13 GMT <bhagyas> yreg: I don't think there's a way to test your subsystems and bean injections with SDK3 on a local level while applying load order

2018-05-25 11:29:22 GMT <bhagyas> so, be cautioned about that

2018-05-25 11:33:24 GMT <bhagyas> also forget testing it with other modules and interactions

2018-05-25 11:33:41 GMT <yreg> Thanks for the heads-up, I don't think I will need anything other than the default values in my dev environment, but I'll keep this in mind

2018-05-25 14:23:03 GMT <douglascrp> does anyone know about any sample on how to extend the doclib adding a new url to the actionUrls array?

2018-05-25 14:23:48 GMT <douglascrp> I am trying to include a new link action with the href param defined as {downloadLowResolutionUrl}

2018-05-25 14:24:15 GMT <douglascrp> but I can not find a way to get my getActionUrls executed when the renderAction is called

2018-05-25 14:59:13 GMT <yreg> douglascrp, I can not understand what you are trying to do, but I think you can do it through an interceptor on the thumbnail service or something

2018-05-25 14:59:56 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, I am customizing the document library, adding a new link type action

2018-05-25 15:00:19 GMT <douglascrp> the action has a href parameter, which receives the {downloadLowResolutionUrl} value

2018-05-25 15:00:38 GMT <yreg> douglascrp, I am totally out of context then

2018-05-25 15:00:42 GMT <yreg> :D

2018-05-25 15:00:44 GMT <douglascrp> :D

2018-05-25 15:00:48 GMT <douglascrp> indeed

2018-05-25 15:01:34 GMT <yreg> I would suggest you go peek at jpotts tutorials

2018-05-25 15:01:41 GMT <yreg> I think it has something like this

2018-05-25 15:02:22 GMT <yreg> maybe you want to switch from a link action to javascript action for more flexibility

2018-05-25 15:05:17 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, I was already considering the last optipon

2018-05-25 15:05:18 GMT <douglascrp> option

2018-05-25 15:06:20 GMT <douglascrp> share already defines some urls, those are replaced with the correct value, like {downloadUrl}, but I can not make mine "replaceable" just like the ootb's ones

2018-05-25 17:10:34 GMT <qwebirc33666> Hi. What is the best way to export an app with its processes from APS and import it in a different environment?

2018-05-25 17:11:27 GMT <qwebirc33666> I tried the available export button but when I imported the app on the new environment

2018-05-25 17:11:34 GMT <qwebirc33666> I couldn't see the forms

2018-05-25 17:12:38 GMT <qwebirc33666> I have used embedded forms

2018-05-25 17:12:45 GMT <qwebirc33666> in my process definitions

2018-05-25 17:19:07 GMT <douglascrp> you should try this channel https://gitter.im/Activiti/Activiti7

2018-05-25 17:19:08 GMT <alfbot> Title: Activiti/Activiti7 - Gitter (at gitter.im)

2018-05-25 17:39:05 GMT <qwebirc33666> Thanks

2018-05-25 19:01:23 GMT <douglascrp> if I use the rest api "GET /nodes/{nodeId}/renditions/{renditionId}/content" to get a rendition, the file is always received with the rendition id name

2018-05-25 19:01:30 GMT <douglascrp> so the file has not extension

2018-05-25 19:01:58 GMT <douglascrp> do you guys have an idea on how to at least enforce the file to be returned with a user friendly name?

2018-05-25 19:02:23 GMT <douglascrp> in this case, if the user saves imgpreview, he will not even know what the file is

2018-05-25 19:06:06 GMT <douglascrp> the /nodes/{nodeId}/content returns the right name, as this:

2018-05-25 19:06:10 GMT <douglascrp> "content-disposition": "attachment; filename=\"PIC-2016-Y3-Registro Pedagógico-Laboratory_7066.JPG\"; filename*=UTF-8''PIC-2016-Y3-Registro%20Pedag%c3%b3gico-Laboratory_7066.JPG",

2018-05-25 19:06:32 GMT <douglascrp> but for the rendition:

2018-05-25 19:06:34 GMT <douglascrp> "content-disposition": "attachment; filename=\"imgpreview\"; filename*=UTF-8''imgpreview",

2018-05-25 19:20:32 GMT <douglascrp> the name is fixed... always the renditionId...
