2018-06-07 03:45:59 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> @AFaust saw this question from activiti users, https://community.alfresco.com/thread/237334-transaction-management-how-does-activiti-handles-transactions-if-one-task-is-failed-in-process

2018-06-07 03:46:01 GMT <alfbot> Title: Transaction management:- How does activiti hand... | Alfresco Community (at community.alfresco.com)

2018-06-07 06:02:50 GMT <alfresco-discord> <AFaust> @digcat that thread also only applies to the core engine, not AOS as a tacked on wrapper app

2018-06-07 06:19:58 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> yep

2018-06-07 06:20:11 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> yeah aos, even more complex

2018-06-07 06:52:56 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> @DavidWebster well i started to look at the share code base, and then thought wonder if its been contemplated inside alfresco, was looking at lebab tool, but am imagining its not a small task,

2018-06-07 06:57:26 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> id be happy to helping though if there was enough interest, I chatted with @bhagyas although he wasnt keen on dojo, but it looked as if its got some momentum from discourse activity etc, and it would be grand to be able to use aikau

2018-06-07 07:00:40 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> @digcat are you in for being a moderator for this channel?

2018-06-07 07:02:26 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> ill be back in europe soon, so dont mind, but happy if others want to rise to this challenge

2018-06-07 07:02:42 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> With his knowledge and involvement with discord, I'd also like to have @mbui take care of European timezones

2018-06-07 07:03:26 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> yep, see if can get global coverage

2018-06-07 07:03:45 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> @mbui ^^

2018-06-07 07:03:55 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> im in Aus at the moment, but will be back in London

2018-06-07 07:04:11 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> Awesome

2018-06-07 07:04:12 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> πŸ˜„

2018-06-07 07:04:20 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> cool, douglas and mbui

2018-06-07 07:04:38 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> yups

2018-06-07 07:04:40 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> πŸ˜ƒ

2018-06-07 07:04:41 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> and me πŸ˜ƒ

2018-06-07 07:04:47 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> and now you're yellow ;p

2018-06-07 07:04:57 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> ahh but we dont get the crown ! 😦

2018-06-07 07:05:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> hehe

2018-06-07 07:05:50 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> There's only one crown, and that's for ownership of the server - which can have multiple channels. Doesn't mean I get to travel with extra security and private jets and celebrate independence waving a flag 😭

2018-06-07 07:06:32 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mbui> thanks πŸ˜ƒ

2018-06-07 07:06:58 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> im still marked a regular user though, moderators get their own section πŸ™ƒ

2018-06-07 07:07:02 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> ha ha

2018-06-07 07:52:12 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> @Francesco Corti geesh, not so good a time, 1.30am Sydney time, will do what I can, but may be zonked out

2018-06-07 07:53:39 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Well, I will be a surprise if you will be able to join... and we will repeat it in the next weeks/months/years/decades/centuries/eras. Don't worry. We are in touch.

2018-06-07 07:54:41 GMT <yreg> ~later tell eswbitto, ACS 6 ships with Postgres 10.x if I am not mistaken

2018-06-07 07:54:41 GMT <alfbot> yreg: The operation succeeded.

2018-06-07 07:54:44 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> hehe, yes, hope all good your end,

2018-06-07 07:55:27 GMT <yreg> ~later tell eswbitto, in my experience, it is a matter of switching to a newer version of the driver

2018-06-07 07:55:27 GMT <alfbot> yreg: The operation succeeded.

2018-06-07 07:55:34 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> I'm happy to see you, @douglascrp and @mbui involved as moderators.

2018-06-07 07:55:43 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Good job guys!

2018-06-07 08:25:17 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> hi @Francesco Corti oh dear looks like Ian nortons emails still have SSL issues

2018-06-07 08:27:51 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> He told me we are having problems with the integration with Marketo... this is the reason of the issues,

2018-06-07 08:28:11 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> (not only Alfresco has issues... 😜 )

2018-06-07 08:30:21 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> yes, can see its delivering *.marketo.com rather than a wild card *.alfresco.com certificate,

2018-06-07 08:39:59 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> I've so been waiting for the switch to git/github from SVN, but what a mess https://github.com/Alfresco has become. There are so many repositories there now, some very similar, no naming structure that indicates what is what. Some repositories just looks like playgrounds. I guess some of it is to blame Github for not supporting folders/tagging.

2018-06-07 08:40:00 GMT <alfbot> Title: Alfresco Software Β· GitHub (at github.com)

2018-06-07 08:40:42 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> 171 repositories in total there now

2018-06-07 08:48:13 GMT <angelborroy> Loftux, Github supports tagging

2018-06-07 08:48:18 GMT <angelborroy> but Alfresco is not using it

2018-06-07 08:50:17 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> angelborroy Good, lets hope they can start using it

2018-06-07 08:53:32 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> For example, trying to get what projects are involved to create the Alfresco Docker images, there is no indication. And lots of it seems to still not be there (for example libreoffice, pdfrenderer, imagemagick Docker build files)

2018-06-07 08:54:05 GMT <angelborroy> that microservices Docker images are private

2018-06-07 08:54:25 GMT <angelborroy> they are Spring Boot microservices that will be only provided for Enteprise

2018-06-07 08:55:03 GMT <angelborroy> The plan is to provide a monolithic 2+GB image for Community and a polished 400 MB image for Enteprise

2018-06-07 09:01:45 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> angelborroy Guess we just have to create our own polished images.

2018-06-07 09:02:10 GMT <angelborroy> We have better images than that (obviously)

2018-06-07 09:02:33 GMT <angelborroy> But having access to that microservices will help to build even a better ones

2018-06-07 09:03:01 GMT <angelborroy> In fact, we are dockerizing Alfresco from 2015 and Alfresco took our Docker images as base for their owns

2018-06-07 09:05:47 GMT <alfresco-discord> <AFaust> @mbui "In one hour"? It says 7pm my time, which is in 8 hours...

2018-06-07 09:06:06 GMT <alfresco-discord> <AFaust> A lol - the event is setup incorrectly...

2018-06-07 09:06:51 GMT <alfresco-discord> <AFaust> They should have split it in three, instead of putting the "Oh, you are not American, then here you have those extra sessions, you crazy hippy"

2018-06-07 09:12:08 GMT <angelborroy> β€œAlfresco Content Services 6.0”?????

2018-06-07 09:12:16 GMT <angelborroy> They are selling this to the clients!

2018-06-07 09:12:25 GMT <angelborroy> Wow, I want to see that :D

2018-06-07 09:28:02 GMT <digcat> well they will sell it, its up to the partner to make it work :)

2018-06-07 10:27:17 GMT <jebr> Hi, using Alfresco 5.1 enterprise and the aos module. I have noticed that when online editing word documents, sometimes the "Save As" dialog shows the directory structure on the local filesystem and on our other similar alfresco instances it shows the directory structure on the remote location (as expected). Have any body experienced something similar and know how to teak the behaviour? /Regards

2018-06-07 10:56:08 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> As far as I know, the save as remember the last one used and shows that no?

2018-06-07 10:56:27 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> So if the user was working online, it will show the online

2018-06-07 10:56:59 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> At least this is how M$ Office is working, I don't know if it is the same through the AOS

2018-06-07 11:37:47 GMT <kkore> trying to update comment on change of dropdown I added custom ftl file by modifying textarea.ftl added script for onchange but value is not coming https://bpaste.net/show/8b877a4aeaee

2018-06-07 12:49:23 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> kkore you dont

2018-06-07 12:49:40 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> but you can setup some client side JS code that does

2018-06-07 12:50:59 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> kkore, you can find a sample here https://github.com/dgcloud/alfresco-value-assistance/blob/master/alfresco-value-assistance-share/src/main/resources/META-INF/resources/js/dependent-control.js#L144

2018-06-07 13:27:08 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mbui> I customer has asked for a feature to "preview/look" into zipped files in Alfresco, pretty much like the way you can do in windows/ubuntu where you can double click the zip file and inspect the files.

2018-06-07 13:27:54 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mbui> I stumbled on this addon https://github.com/keensoft/alfresco-zip-previewer I guess that solves what they want? πŸ˜ƒ @angel.borroy

2018-06-07 13:29:27 GMT <angelborroy> mbui that addon shows the ZIP contents in previewer

2018-06-07 13:30:02 GMT <angelborroy> also index that filenames as its a transformation for preview, it converts the ZIP file into a PDF file including folder and filenames insider the ZIP

2018-06-07 13:30:10 GMT <angelborroy> This feature is provided by Alfresco 6 ootb

2018-06-07 13:30:19 GMT <angelborroy> But you can use the addon for Alfresco 5.x

2018-06-07 13:32:16 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mbui> angelborroy: Oh, I see. Thanks

2018-06-07 14:22:28 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> @mbui You can get zip preview in 5.2 with the correct config as well

2018-06-07 14:23:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mbui> @Loftux Oh? Can you elaborate?

2018-06-07 14:25:41 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> This is what you need https://github.com/loftuxab/alfresco-community-loftux/blob/loftux/projects/repository/config/alfresco/subsystems/Transformers/default/transformers.properties#L110

2018-06-07 14:27:04 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> We also have jodconverter backported to the 5.2 base, just clone and build

2018-06-07 15:03:39 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mbui> @Loftux Thanks!

2018-06-07 15:24:22 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> What's the property change to set a user as inactive ?

2018-06-07 15:27:21 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> I am working on a sync from a custom subsystem

2018-06-07 15:28:33 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> and I want to mark inactive users from that custom user registry as inactive in alfresco during the sync, but the enabled flag seems to apply only for TYPE_USER and not for TYPE_PERSON
