Daily Log for #alfresco

2018-05-28 00:01:51 GMT <digcat1> wise words from Steve Jobs, I have my own theory about why the decline happens at companies like IBM or Microsoft.The company does a great job, innovates and becomes a monopoly or close to it in some field, and then the quality of the product becomes less important.The company starts valuing the great salesmen, because they're the ones who can move the needle on revenues, not the product engineers and designers. So the salespeople end

2018-05-28 00:01:51 GMT <digcat1> up running the company." Once you have a monopoly, new products don't help you, only better marketing. Soon, marketing people are running the company, and what made them great is gone..." https://youtu.be/-AxZofbMGpM

2018-05-28 07:14:08 GMT <yreg> Morning

2018-05-28 07:14:14 GMT <yreg> everyone

2018-05-28 08:02:10 GMT * DarkStar1 bids everybody a good morning.

2018-05-28 09:17:21 GMT <angelborroy> yreg that OAuth 2.0 server for Alfresco Repo is Enterprise only?

2018-05-28 09:26:03 GMT <yreg> The integration on the Alfresco side is probably enterprise only, but that's only 2 man days worth of work (tops)

2018-05-28 09:26:36 GMT <yreg> TBC

2018-05-28 09:27:03 GMT <yreg> The server itself is the same thing used in activiti 7 and is opensource

2018-05-28 09:28:10 GMT <yreg> Note, even without the integration with alfresco via jwt, keycloak should have all it takes to serve as a client/server for various protocols

2018-05-28 09:29:08 GMT <angelborroy> I don’t think that it can be the same thing

2018-05-28 09:29:25 GMT <angelborroy> I suppose that Alfresco Repo should create a custom authentication module

2018-05-28 09:29:34 GMT <angelborroy> Which is not present in Activiti core

2018-05-28 09:29:36 GMT <angelborroy> AFAIK

2018-05-28 09:29:54 GMT <angelborroy> Anyway, Alfresco will not support this service for Community

2018-05-28 09:30:03 GMT <angelborroy> As I was thinking

2018-05-28 09:30:05 GMT <angelborroy> Thanks

2018-05-28 09:30:41 GMT <yreg> angelborroy, that's to be confirmed

2018-05-28 09:31:07 GMT <angelborroy> Let me guess… they’ll say NO

2018-05-28 09:32:31 GMT <yreg> angelborroy, there is a high chance I would be wrong : https://github.com/Alfresco/alfresco-repository/tree/master/src/main/resources/alfresco/subsystems/Authentication/identity-service

2018-05-28 09:32:32 GMT <alfbot> Title: alfresco-repository/src/main/resources/alfresco/subsystems/Authentication/identity-service at master · Alfresco/alfresco-repository · GitHub (at github.com)

2018-05-28 09:33:16 GMT <yreg> angelborroy, commit message says : AUTH-87/AUTH-85: Move SSO token implementation back to Alfresco Community

2018-05-28 09:33:16 GMT <yreg> Changed references to "token authentication" and "keycloak" to "identity-service", where appropriate.

2018-05-28 09:33:32 GMT <angelborroy> interesting...

2018-05-28 09:33:36 GMT <bhagyas> oAuth is likely going to be enterprise only

2018-05-28 09:33:56 GMT <bhagyas> I remember something along that line which was present during Brians presentation at the devcon

2018-05-28 10:19:12 GMT <AFaust> Hmm...waiting for community.alfresco.com to be shut down due to GDPR, since addons.alfresco.com already suffered that fate...

2018-05-28 10:19:30 GMT <angelborroy> good point!

2018-05-28 10:19:55 GMT <AFaust> Somehow I did not notice that blog post from Francesco on Friday...

2018-05-28 10:20:01 GMT <angelborroy> It looks like they didn’t like addons page (and that’s all), but always is good to have an “excuse”

2018-05-28 10:21:05 GMT <AFaust> Well, given how extensions should no longer be done like the majority of addons did it, and there is no addon / extensibility support for ADF (yet / ever), one could also argue that there is no longer a need for such a site

2018-05-28 10:21:43 GMT <angelborroy> true

2018-05-28 10:22:08 GMT <angelborroy> but this was the last “showcase” for Community work

2018-05-28 10:22:52 GMT <angelborroy> IMO Alfresco is closing Community… probably it will be definitively closed in 1 year or 2

2018-05-28 10:24:14 GMT <AFaust> probably != definitively

2018-05-28 10:24:59 GMT <angelborroy> They are in process of closing Community now...

2018-05-28 10:25:09 GMT <angelborroy> … but they’ll end with this closing in 1 or 2 years

2018-05-28 10:25:13 GMT <angelborroy> Obviously, IMHO

2018-05-28 10:29:02 GMT <AFaust> Given how long it takes them for even minor changes, don't you think 1 or 2 years is a bit ambitious? ;)

2018-05-28 10:29:15 GMT <angelborroy> hehe, you’re right!

2018-05-28 10:46:32 GMT <Arun__> hallo everyone

2018-05-28 10:47:14 GMT <Arun__> Is there any chance to hide the records of the document in alfresco

2018-05-28 10:48:12 GMT <angelborroy> “records” = Record Management module properties?

2018-05-28 10:50:21 GMT <fcorti> good morning all

2018-05-28 10:51:25 GMT <fcorti> ehi, I cannot read the IRC channel for minutes and you discuss about a probable destruction of the Community...

2018-05-28 10:51:27 GMT <fcorti> :-)

2018-05-28 10:51:34 GMT <fcorti> This is not the plan

2018-05-28 10:51:47 GMT <angelborroy> I know, but it looks like

2018-05-28 10:52:04 GMT <angelborroy> Just trying to bait you :-P

2018-05-28 10:52:16 GMT <fcorti> :-)

2018-05-28 10:52:34 GMT <fcorti> The Community portal has not issues with GDPR!

2018-05-28 10:52:47 GMT <Arun__> I want to hide the matter inside the document is it possible in alfresco

2018-05-28 10:53:20 GMT <Arun__> please tell me if any chance is there.

2018-05-28 10:53:27 GMT <fcorti> The Addon site will be replaced with a static version, waiting for a decision on its future (and it won't came soon).

2018-05-28 10:54:14 GMT <fcorti> Arun__ what is the "matter inside the document". What do you want to hide, in particular?

2018-05-28 10:55:58 GMT <angelborroy> he wants to hide “the records” of the document

2018-05-28 10:56:16 GMT <angelborroy> (anyway I also have no idea of what “records” means)

2018-05-28 10:56:21 GMT <fcorti> I saw... what a record is?

2018-05-28 10:56:26 GMT <fcorti> ehm... exactly,

2018-05-28 10:56:50 GMT <Arun__> if I search any word in the file then it should not show any file

2018-05-28 10:57:16 GMT <fcorti> You can use the permits on the folders/documents to do this.

2018-05-28 10:57:33 GMT <fcorti> Giving the right permissions to groups on folders/documents.

2018-05-28 10:57:42 GMT <fcorti> DOes it answer to your question?

2018-05-28 10:57:46 GMT <angelborroy> I think what Arun__ wants to do it’s to keep away from searching the content of the documents

2018-05-28 10:58:15 GMT <angelborroy> So the users cannot find a document by using terms inside the content of the document

2018-05-28 10:58:16 GMT <angelborroy> right?

2018-05-28 10:58:54 GMT <Arun__> ya excatly,And one morething i want to add new label to the user profile

2018-05-28 10:59:09 GMT <fcorti> wait wait...

2018-05-28 10:59:19 GMT <fcorti> if you talk about the user, it's a mattr of permits

2018-05-28 11:00:10 GMT <fcorti> as altrnative you can avoid to index a document... but if you directly point on it, the user will have access.

2018-05-28 11:00:43 GMT <yreg> Arun__, fcorti you can keep indexing the document metadata and ignore the content

2018-05-28 11:01:34 GMT <Arun__> i cant get you yerg, please tell me again

2018-05-28 11:02:02 GMT <yreg> That's handled using a special property cm:isContentIndexed

2018-05-28 11:02:06 GMT <bhagyas> wait what, what happened to add-ons site

2018-05-28 11:02:35 GMT <bhagyas> thankfully there's awesome-alfresco github project, phew

2018-05-28 11:02:40 GMT <yreg> If you set it to false, the content is no longer indexed, but the metadata will keep being indexed

2018-05-28 11:02:45 GMT <angelborroy> bhagyas it looks like GDPR terms are forcing to “close” it

2018-05-28 11:02:47 GMT <bhagyas> I should start listing commercial projects there

2018-05-28 11:02:59 GMT <fcorti> bhagyas freezed to convert it in static becasue of the GDPR

2018-05-28 11:03:02 GMT <bhagyas> angelborroy: I think they should shut down their ADF components page due to GDPR

2018-05-28 11:03:03 GMT <angelborroy> bhagyas So, yes, your list is the only resource currently :D

2018-05-28 11:03:13 GMT <bhagyas> xP

2018-05-28 11:03:14 GMT <Loftux1> The closing of addons site because of GDPR must be the most bullshit reason I've heard

2018-05-28 11:03:26 GMT <angelborroy> Loftux1 +1

2018-05-28 11:03:34 GMT <yreg> +1 Loftux1

2018-05-28 11:03:41 GMT <bhagyas> Loftux1: +1

2018-05-28 11:03:50 GMT <fcorti> Loftux1: -1

2018-05-28 11:03:51 GMT <fcorti> :-D

2018-05-28 11:04:13 GMT <angelborroy> He still wins :-P

2018-05-28 11:04:16 GMT <yreg> I don't recall seeing any "Personal Identifiable Information" there

2018-05-28 11:04:18 GMT <bhagyas> fcorti, where can i submit my GDPR requests to Alfresco?

2018-05-28 11:04:19 GMT <Loftux1> fcorti: I hereby retract your vote due to GDPR

2018-05-28 11:04:29 GMT <fcorti> I tried... f*#k

2018-05-28 11:04:32 GMT <fcorti> :-)

2018-05-28 11:04:38 GMT <rajkumar> hii,i want to add new label while creating new user profile ?let me know how to do it

2018-05-28 11:04:56 GMT <fcorti> I know the history of the request... this is way I said -1 to you

2018-05-28 11:05:10 GMT <Loftux1> I hereby declare that Alfresco need to open source the Enterprise code due to GDPR

2018-05-28 11:05:11 GMT <fcorti> we all want to do something better on the addon sit

2018-05-28 11:05:11 GMT <bhagyas> fcorti: I don't see the site in read only mode either

2018-05-28 11:05:42 GMT <fcorti> bhagyas they are working on it... it has been a rapid decision

2018-05-28 11:05:49 GMT <fcorti> (friday's decision)

2018-05-28 11:05:52 GMT <yreg> rajkumar, that's a recurring request, try searching community.alfresco.com for a similar one

2018-05-28 11:05:55 GMT <bhagyas> fcorti: please don't make it better, please 🙏🏻

2018-05-28 11:05:58 GMT <yreg> Maybe this link helps : https://community.alfresco.com/thread/207838-custom-user-profile-by-add-new-properties

2018-05-28 11:06:00 GMT <alfbot> Title: Custom user profile by add new properties | Alfresco Community (at community.alfresco.com)

2018-05-28 11:06:13 GMT <bhagyas> everything that was 'made better' ended up being worse than earlier

2018-05-28 11:06:19 GMT <bhagyas> xD

2018-05-28 11:06:41 GMT <fcorti> bhagyas no problem... there are no plans (and known budget) so it won't be done soon, unfortunately.

2018-05-28 11:06:52 GMT <Loftux1> fcorti: Seriously, we all wanted improvements, but taking away what was working until you have improvements in place doesn't seem smart

2018-05-28 11:06:55 GMT <bhagyas> fcorti: where's the read only site?

2018-05-28 11:07:17 GMT <angelborroy> rajkumar https://github.com/sujaypillai/someco-people

2018-05-28 11:07:18 GMT <alfbot> Title: GitHub - sujaypillai/someco-people (at github.com)

2018-05-28 11:07:25 GMT <rajkumar> yreg ...I am using alfresco community 5.2.f is it support?

2018-05-28 11:07:39 GMT <fcorti> bhagyas they are working on developing it. It will be there in few days.

2018-05-28 11:07:51 GMT <angelborroy> rajkumar the link I gave you is compatible with 5.2

2018-05-28 11:07:51 GMT <fcorti> Loftux1 GDPR forced to that this decision.

2018-05-28 11:07:53 GMT <bhagyas> fcorti: what's there to develop for read only site?

2018-05-28 11:07:55 GMT <yreg> rajkumar, that part haven't changed much (/at all) over the past few years

2018-05-28 11:07:57 GMT <bhagyas> a*

2018-05-28 11:08:08 GMT <yreg> Check the link from angelborroy, that's a practical example

2018-05-28 11:08:10 GMT <sairam> hi

2018-05-28 11:08:38 GMT <Loftux1> fcorti: I'm seriously interested to understand exactly what is violating privacy there?

2018-05-28 11:08:50 GMT <fcorti> bhagyas the list of projects will be statically presented.

2018-05-28 11:08:59 GMT <bhagyas> fcorti: oh god

2018-05-28 11:09:26 GMT <bhagyas> we need to update our products and listings and other open source add-ons as well

2018-05-28 11:09:28 GMT <fcorti> Loftux1 I can create a contact with our IT Team that is facing it

2018-05-28 11:09:43 GMT <bhagyas> and you can have a disclaimer for publicly submitted content anyways

2018-05-28 11:09:46 GMT <fcorti> bhagyas are you all compliant with GDPR?

2018-05-28 11:09:48 GMT <bhagyas> so I could also call this BS

2018-05-28 11:10:00 GMT <bhagyas> fcorti: we are, since start

2018-05-28 11:10:17 GMT <fcorti> bhagyas since before the GDPR was defined

2018-05-28 11:10:20 GMT <Proto> Sup again!

2018-05-28 11:10:22 GMT <sairam> how to custom web-preview in alfresco ,is there any possibility?

2018-05-28 11:10:39 GMT <bhagyas> yeah, we had started looking into GDPR since it was passed way back

2018-05-28 11:10:50 GMT <Loftux1> So many organizations are overreacting to GDPR

2018-05-28 11:10:51 GMT <bhagyas> it's not like we were sleeping like Alfresco

2018-05-28 11:10:58 GMT <bhagyas> :)

2018-05-28 11:11:04 GMT <fcorti> bhagyas you are always ahead... I know.

2018-05-28 11:11:04 GMT <Arun__> how to configure ocr in alfresco on windows machine

2018-05-28 11:11:21 GMT <Arun__> i have add a xml file in extension

2018-05-28 11:11:35 GMT <Arun__> and also created a ocr.bat file

2018-05-28 11:13:38 GMT <bhagyas> I wonder how the Alfresco is dealing with the tracking pixel now, since they have been collecting all that data :3

2018-05-28 11:13:57 GMT <Proto> Activiti DOCs say that activity development is only supported in SDK 2.2, but SDK 2.2 doesn't have the activity option (only share, platf, and allinone) :$ Any idia how to deploy a single activity project?

2018-05-28 11:14:05 GMT <bhagyas> without explicit consent, and continuing to distribute code with the tracking pixel

2018-05-28 11:14:08 GMT <bhagyas> ;)

2018-05-28 11:14:53 GMT <bhagyas> and guess what, we haven't had it on LXCommunity since its first release :)

2018-05-28 11:15:09 GMT <angelborroy> Proto Please, refer this tutorial from Jeff https://ecmarchitect.com/alfresco-developer-series-tutorials/workflow/tutorial/tutorial.html

2018-05-28 11:15:10 GMT <alfbot> Title: Creating Custom Advanced Workflows in Alfresco | ECM Architect | Alfresco Developer Tutorials (at ecmarchitect.com)

2018-05-28 11:15:37 GMT <angelborroy> Proto I understand you are designing an Activiti flow to be deployed inside Alfresco + Share web apps

2018-05-28 11:16:00 GMT <Proto> yes angel

2018-05-28 11:16:07 GMT <angelborroy> Proto Since this will be discontinued in Alfresco 6, Jeff’s tutorial explains you all the steps required both in Repo and Share web applications

2018-05-28 11:17:09 GMT <bhagyas> also asking for personal information of users whenever they downloaded Alfresco CE

2018-05-28 11:17:11 GMT <bhagyas> xD

2018-05-28 11:19:09 GMT <bhagyas> and the add-ons site would be the least concern

2018-05-28 11:21:03 GMT <Arun__> Yreg, where i can find this content indexed property

2018-05-28 11:21:20 GMT <yreg> Arun__, you set it

2018-05-28 11:21:30 GMT <rajkumar> hello i want to translate language of metadata of the file let me know how to do it

2018-05-28 11:21:52 GMT <Arun__> in document property list

2018-05-28 11:22:37 GMT <Arun__> Yerg shall i create a custom action for it

2018-05-28 11:23:33 GMT <yreg> Arun__, what are you trying to achieve ?

2018-05-28 11:24:04 GMT <yreg> Prevent a document from being found using its content in a search, right ?

2018-05-28 11:25:09 GMT <Arun__> I have a document in that document some matter is there .how can I hide the matter if I search that matter the file should not be displayed

2018-05-28 11:27:02 GMT <rajkumar> Is there, any possibility for changing the language in alfresco

2018-05-28 11:27:23 GMT <bhagyas> Provider personal information, so you can download information on GDPR compliance: https://www.alfresco.com/gdpr-compliance

2018-05-28 11:27:46 GMT <bhagyas> I don't know whether to laugh at this or just file a request xP

2018-05-28 11:30:22 GMT <bhagyas> and the page title is 'data privacy by design'

2018-05-28 11:30:23 GMT <bhagyas> :|

2018-05-28 12:45:11 GMT <Tichodroma> Quick confirmation please: ldap.synchronization.groupSearchBase can only have a single value. All groups below that match ldap.synchronization.groupQuery are synched. Multiple search bases are not supported. Correct?

2018-05-28 12:48:04 GMT <angelborroy> Tichodroma correct when you have a single LDAP/AD subsystem

2018-05-28 12:48:13 GMT <Tichodroma> thought so, thanks

2018-05-28 12:48:57 GMT <angelborroy> Tichodroma https://github.com/magenta-aps/ldap-multi-search-base

2018-05-28 12:48:58 GMT <alfbot> Title: GitHub - magenta-aps/ldap-multi-search-base: LDAP Multi Search Base (at github.com)

2018-05-28 12:49:08 GMT <yreg> Tichodroma, I guess what angelborroy implicitly suggested is that you can have multiple bases, by setting up different instances of ldap/ad

2018-05-28 12:49:32 GMT <Tichodroma> That may be an idea.

2018-05-28 12:49:36 GMT <angelborroy> yreg of course, but Tichodroma is able to understand that from my words :D

2018-05-28 12:49:43 GMT <Tichodroma> ;)

2018-05-28 12:49:50 GMT <angelborroy> another idea is to use that module from Lanre

2018-05-28 12:54:36 GMT <Tichodroma> Does https://github.com/magenta-aps/ldap-multi-search-base work with 5.2?

2018-05-28 12:54:37 GMT <alfbot> Title: GitHub - magenta-aps/ldap-multi-search-base: LDAP Multi Search Base (at github.com)

2018-05-28 12:55:19 GMT <angelborroy> Tichodroma I didn’t test it, but it looks to work

2018-05-28 12:55:34 GMT <angelborroy> Main problem is that is using “ldap:ldap1” identifier

2018-05-28 12:55:43 GMT <angelborroy> this is fixed

2018-05-28 12:55:45 GMT <Tichodroma> ok, maybe I'll try this. But first $CUSTOMER must understand what the problem is :)

2018-05-28 14:10:24 GMT <yreg> Guys, I have a weird problem in share

2018-05-28 14:11:24 GMT <yreg> When users browse through the repository page, they get the content of their user home instead of company home, and there is no RepositoryLibrary section in share-config-custom.xml

2018-05-28 14:11:36 GMT <yreg> Have any of seen something like this before ?

2018-05-28 14:24:19 GMT <Loftux1> yreg: Yes - <root-node>alfresco://user/home</root-node>

2018-05-28 14:24:20 GMT <Loftux1> + <root-node>alfresco://company/home</root-node>

2018-05-28 14:24:45 GMT <yreg> I couldn't find that in share-config-custom.xml

2018-05-28 14:24:49 GMT <Loftux1> Hmm maybe not the same

2018-05-28 14:25:09 GMT <Loftux1> That part is at least in <config evaluator="string-compare" condition="RepositoryLibrary" replace="true">

2018-05-28 14:25:10 GMT <yreg> No RepositoryLibrary section at all

2018-05-28 14:25:35 GMT <yreg> I will put one and see if that solves it

2018-05-28 14:28:32 GMT <yreg> And the fun part is that I have two identical environments (customisation wise) that behave differently

2018-05-28 14:28:53 GMT <yreg> One resolves to user home, the other to company home

2018-05-28 14:33:03 GMT <AFaust> If the user has no user home, then "My Files" will default to the Repository view

2018-05-28 14:33:38 GMT <AFaust> On the other hand, I have never seen user home being substituted for company home

2018-05-28 14:33:49 GMT <yreg> AFaust, the problem here is that the repository view is pointing to the userhome

2018-05-28 14:33:52 GMT <AFaust> Unless some customisation was targeted incorrectly

2018-05-28 14:34:07 GMT <yreg> I am now rolling through all customizations

2018-05-28 14:34:13 GMT <AFaust> I understand - that is why I added the "on the other hand" statement

2018-05-28 14:35:02 GMT <yreg> maybe there is one customisation having such a snippet in share-config-custom and that is taking precedence in one environment but not the other

2018-05-28 16:45:14 GMT <alfbot> resplin: Sent 6 weeks, 4 days, 14 hours, and 49 minutes ago: <digcat> catch up when your about, is it possible to have the later tell stuff on the orderofthebee group?

2018-05-28 18:23:23 GMT <resplin> I'm doing maintenance on the server hosting Alfbot today. I added a new drive.

2018-05-28 18:23:28 GMT <resplin> How are you @douglascrp?

2018-05-28 18:24:14 GMT <douglascrp> resplin, I am ok... you?

2018-05-28 18:24:19 GMT <douglascrp> long time

2018-05-28 22:37:39 GMT <digcat> hi @resplin hope things going well your end, enjoying your new job
