2018-06-18 06:10:36 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> Morning all

2018-06-18 06:22:58 GMT <alex__> hallo

2018-06-18 06:23:31 GMT <alex__> How to disable and enable the document actions in alfresco

2018-06-18 06:33:16 GMT <alex__> please tell me how to disable the document action

2018-06-18 06:33:28 GMT <alex__> i am new to alfresco

2018-06-18 06:35:18 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mbui> alex__: You can disable in multiple ways, the most common is to disable it with share-config-custom.xml I guess and create an evaluator to disable the action.

2018-06-18 06:36:39 GMT <alex__> thank you very much. can u please send any document or url

2018-06-18 06:37:49 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mbui> Just google "alfresco disable document action" and you'll find a few blog posts

2018-06-18 06:39:16 GMT <alex__> thanks

2018-06-18 06:39:22 GMT <alex__> alot

2018-06-18 06:50:34 GMT <alfresco-discord> <twen> good morning o/

2018-06-18 06:51:02 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> @digcat it's to do with commoditisation of the complements: https://www.gwern.net/Complement

2018-06-18 06:51:03 GMT <alfbot> Title:Laws of Tech: Commoditize Your Complement - Gwern.net (at www.gwern.net)

2018-06-18 06:51:19 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> which is why many larger companies are on open source now more than ever

2018-06-18 06:52:00 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> btw, learning about nuxeo shouldn't mean you have to give up Alfresco, it just means you're not putting all your eggs in one basket that a private investment fund owns :p

2018-06-18 06:52:57 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> also getting out of our personal little bubbles of happiness with Alfresco

2018-06-18 06:53:01 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> ^_^

2018-06-18 07:27:19 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> hey @bhagyas interesting read, i had heard something similar, but not of Joel Spolsky. and yes i agree learning nuxeo doesnt mean giving up alfresco, nextcloud is looking good as well as nuxeo, and also agree important to escape personal bubbles 😄

2018-06-18 07:36:34 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> yeah, I usually read Joels work, didn't know he had written about this earlier

2018-06-18 07:40:42 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> Good morning @twen

2018-06-18 07:40:43 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> hehe

2018-06-18 10:11:14 GMT <_proto> hi again! is there any api/documentation/support/scripting to import files from [MySQL + localFiledirectory] ----to----> [Alfresco 5.2 custom model] ?? Thanks!

2018-06-18 10:12:27 GMT <angelborroy> _proto We’re using a standolone program for that, based in CMIS client

2018-06-18 10:13:27 GMT <_proto> angelborroy, could you please send me that program link? or documentation?

2018-06-18 10:13:52 GMT <angelborroy> have you ever used a CMIS client?

2018-06-18 10:15:52 GMT <angelborroy> this is a starting point: https://chemistry.apache.org/docs/cmis-samples/index.html

2018-06-18 10:15:53 GMT <alfbot> Title:Home - Apache Chemistry Samples (at chemistry.apache.org)

2018-06-18 10:33:58 GMT <_proto> angelborry, thanks, I'll give it a look!

2018-06-18 11:50:26 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mbui> I'm getting a few of these exceptions in the logs, anyone know what these mean? ERROR [token.script.UpdateTokenScript] [http-bio-8080-exec-130] Token not found com.westernacher.wps.alfresco.license.exception.TokenNotFoundException: Client ID: '*****************************', user name: '***'

2018-06-18 12:07:45 GMT <alfresco-discord> <AFaust> Well, likely related to Alfresco Outlook integration, which is an OEM-ed solution from Westernacher (now it-novum)

2018-06-18 16:08:39 GMT <_proto> angelborry, I'm not sure we were talking about the same thing. If I'm not wrong, alfresco CMIS is used for sharing documents with external agencies...

2018-06-18 16:09:52 GMT <_proto> I'm looking for "somthing" that could import data into alfresco with BD and fileSystem source, using rules and all that stuff

2018-06-18 16:11:40 GMT <_proto> i.e. I have this info file(id, <name>, date1, date2, author) in my BD and a file named <name> in my repo, and I want to import all that info into Alfresco

2018-06-18 16:12:17 GMT <mbrodsky> _proto, I used the bulk filesystem import tool for that. You would need to export your database records into individual metadata records that correspond with each file. Then use BFSI tool to migrate everything.

2018-06-18 16:12:17 GMT <_proto> what is more: i have lots of files and want to import into an Alfresco directory structure using rules

2018-06-18 16:12:30 GMT <_proto> is there any utility that can do that?

2018-06-18 16:13:05 GMT <_proto> OH! That sounds really good... mbrodsky

2018-06-18 16:13:33 GMT <mbrodsky> _proto documentation here: https://docs.alfresco.com/5.2/concepts/Bulk-Import-Tool.html

2018-06-18 16:13:34 GMT <alfbot> Title:Using the Bulk Import tool | Alfresco Documentation (at docs.alfresco.com)

2018-06-18 16:14:33 GMT <_proto> haha was already reading that doc. page. thanks, ill give it a deep read

2018-06-18 16:15:25 GMT <mbrodsky> yeah that's the easiest way I've found to do a bulk migration, but getting all the metadata properties xml file constructed from an existing db is a bit of a pain

2018-06-18 19:02:02 GMT <xkahn> I'm seeing 413 Request Entity Too Large errors on Alfresco when creating documents via CMIS

2018-06-18 19:02:29 GMT <xkahn> Any tips where to look? The documents are a little more than 6 Megs. Smaller documents appear to work fine.

2018-06-18 19:02:36 GMT <xkahn> Quotas are disabled.

2018-06-18 19:02:56 GMT <xkahn> Yes, I'm using an apache proxy, but it seems to ALSO have the problem without it.

2018-06-18 19:03:30 GMT <xkahn> Any logging I should turn on?

2018-06-18 19:49:55 GMT <xkahn> Looks like it might be a problem with cmislib 0.5.1

2018-06-18 19:50:16 GMT <xkahn> But cmislib-alfresco-extension doesn't yet support cmislib 0.6.0
