2018-07-13 00:06:56 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> no man, I could not even download it yet

2018-07-13 00:07:20 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I am too busy working on old projects, and I have to let the new things for another time

2018-07-13 00:07:45 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> yeah understand, this might be an old issue in share, but havent found anything about yet, relates to StrobeMediaPlayback.js:1

2018-07-13 00:08:02 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> getting errors on share console, thought id ask if you had heard anything about that

2018-07-13 00:08:21 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> hmmm, I think I know what you are talking about

2018-07-13 00:08:29 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> but I can not remember about details

2018-07-13 00:08:34 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> share 5.0? 5.1?

2018-07-13 00:09:24 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> ill need to spin up those older versions, to see

2018-07-13 00:09:26 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> well, I guess share has not changed a lot

2018-07-13 00:09:34 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> im getting a 404

2018-07-13 00:09:38 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I believe share is still 5.2.something

2018-07-13 00:09:40 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> so looks like its out

2018-07-13 00:09:48 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> 6.0.b

2018-07-13 00:09:56 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> love these naming conventions

2018-07-13 00:10:02 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> if you can, share more details with me by email

2018-07-13 00:10:27 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> nw, ill put a gist together, thanks

2018-07-13 00:10:39 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> ok nw thanks

2018-07-13 00:10:42 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> it is late here, and I am just answering some emails before going to bed

2018-07-13 00:11:03 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> ahh yes, get some sleep 😃

2018-07-13 00:11:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> but I am almost sure this problem is not that unknown

2018-07-13 00:12:21 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> and I missed the OH again

2018-07-13 00:12:46 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> have you watched it?

2018-07-13 00:25:47 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> nope i managed to wake up, and login, for like 5 mins, then kristen had to go, and it was ended, caught a little bit about the heartbeat service, a good candidate for a hackathon project

2018-07-13 00:26:16 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> angel and axel were on board, maybe they got some good insights

2018-07-13 00:26:31 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I will wati for the sumary

2018-07-13 00:26:35 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> yep

2018-07-13 00:26:50 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> hard with aus timezone

2018-07-13 00:41:26 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> ok, now I go

2018-07-13 00:41:28 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> good night

2018-07-13 04:44:48 GMT <Tharun> Hi Everyone, I am integrated alfresco content service with alfresco process service. Now i want to start my workflow using script. Can anyone help me i am new to alfresco.

2018-07-13 04:51:54 GMT <rkchan> hi I want to customise Alfresco process service workspace let me know where can I find these files

2018-07-13 04:57:56 GMT <Tharun> What do u want customise

2018-07-13 05:12:53 GMT <rkchan> hi @alfresco-discord I want to download process-workspace-1.0.1 where can I download process-workspace.1.0.1 ?

2018-07-13 07:57:46 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Hi @digcat, sorry for that. The good news is that you can find a good summary here: https://community.alfresco.com/docs/DOC-7942-office-hour-notes#jive_content_id_12th_of_July_2018__Thursday_1530_UTC

2018-07-13 07:57:51 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> 😃

2018-07-13 08:09:09 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> yeah good stuff, thanks for that

2018-07-13 08:10:08 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> i just tried the latest 201806-GA release, all up ok, but seeing errors on shares console, should this be logged ?

2018-07-13 08:10:13 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/451644531323174914/467241326170210304/unknown.png

2018-07-13 08:10:37 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> or are we all aware of these console errors?

2018-07-13 08:13:28 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> if any one gets to the latest enterprise release, wondering if these errors are showing on that, share 6.0.b

2018-07-13 08:15:50 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Uuuu... this is something for @DavidWebster

2018-07-13 08:16:09 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> i tried replacing the StrobeMediaPlayback.js but that errors horribly, so this might explain it was easier to remove, but guess its something which should be unbuckled, so not just a 404 in console

2018-07-13 08:16:51 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> have you got an enterprise release up? wondering if same showing on that?

2018-07-13 08:25:21 GMT <AFaust> digcat: I have seen that Strobe console error since a customer of mine migrated to 5.2 Enterprise

2018-07-13 08:26:00 GMT <AFaust> Looks like JS has been removed but XML config still references it

2018-07-13 08:26:52 GMT <alfresco-discord> <ERusso> Morning everyone, did anyone try to use the S3 connector with Google Cloud Storage?

2018-07-13 08:27:53 GMT <AFaust> No, because the APIs should be completely different, no? So the connector should not work at all

2018-07-13 08:28:52 GMT <AFaust> Looking at documentation to check myself, since I never looked at Google Cloud Storage too closely

2018-07-13 08:30:05 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> thanks Axel, wondering if it needs a ticket, will wait to hear if @DavidWebster has already got a handle on it

2018-07-13 08:32:58 GMT <AFaust> ERusso: If https://cloud.google.com/storage/docs/migrating is to be believed, it might work. But I would not use a constellation supported for migration purposes as a long-term setup

2018-07-13 08:35:53 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> Dashboard errors on console for share 6.0.b

2018-07-13 08:35:53 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/451644531323174914/467247784379285514/unknown.png

2018-07-13 08:49:15 GMT <AFaust> Looks like either some placeholders changed or the paths are (no longer) available in the JS object for nodes...

2018-07-13 08:49:48 GMT <AFaust> That inject error I have not seen before in other Alfresco versions...

2018-07-13 09:14:10 GMT <ayushi> Hi all

2018-07-13 09:14:58 GMT <ayushi> I need to calculate the total no of nodes in a folder in alfresco

2018-07-13 09:15:30 GMT <ayushi> Is there any out of the box API that counts the total no of items in a folder

2018-07-13 09:21:56 GMT <AFaust> Not really... You can always do a simple getChildAssocs via the NodeService and then count the resulting elements. Be aware that you are implicitly loading also the metadata of those items and performing permission checks, so the time to execute may be quite long for large folders.

2018-07-13 09:22:12 GMT <alfresco-discord> <ERusso> AFaust: Thanks yes I agree.. it's wort testing it anyway but it's probably not viable

2018-07-13 09:23:19 GMT <AFaust> You can get a faster/simpler, but potentially incorrect count by using a SOLR search (i.e. for PARENT:"<folderNodeRef>") and then using the numberFound on the result set. But the number might be skewed by indexing delay, index suppression or index errors

2018-07-13 09:24:01 GMT <AFaust> ayushi: Oh, wait. I have overlooked the countChildAssocs operation on the NodeService

2018-07-13 09:25:05 GMT <AFaust> That is a very simplistic operation (you cannot distinguish between actual files / folders or other types of nodes) which gives you the count of all the children of the node, regardless of user permissions etc.

2018-07-13 09:26:13 GMT <AFaust> The non-restrictiveness of the operation means that it will also count invisible nodes (same for getChildAssocs + count unless you filter)

2018-07-13 09:33:44 GMT <ayushi> okay,Afaust I have read the countChildAssociations mthod of nodeService but that will also add the comments and rules folders

2018-07-13 09:34:23 GMT <ayushi> if a rule or comment is applied on the parent nodeRef

2018-07-13 09:34:44 GMT <AFaust> yeah, so in practice it is not really useful, which is why I forgot to mention it in the first place

2018-07-13 09:34:51 GMT <ayushi> because comments and rules are also the associations of the parent node

2018-07-13 09:41:44 GMT <ayushi> so is there any way to ignore the count of comments and rules associations of a node

2018-07-13 09:56:38 GMT <AFaust> Either by doing the getChildAssocs + count approach (getChildAssocs can be parameterised with the types of nodes you want to count), or going the SOLR query route (using inclusion/exclusion conditions)

2018-07-13 10:03:17 GMT <ayushi> and also it will give only the primary children

2018-07-13 10:04:51 GMT <ayushi> and ignores the secondary child if we have folder or file in a subfolder

2018-07-13 12:29:41 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> good morning

2018-07-13 12:29:57 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I was reading the summary of yesterday's OH

2018-07-13 12:30:07 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> about this: Axel Faust talks about the Order Of The Bee Board and we discussed the opportunity to setup a public webinar presenting it to the broad public. (maybe in Sept).

2018-07-13 12:30:41 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> AFaust, do you think we should schedule a chat with all the new members?

2018-07-13 12:30:57 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> because so far, I have no more information on what to do next

2018-07-13 12:40:32 GMT <AxelFaust> douglascrp: Yes, we should definitely set up that chat between us. That is essentially also what I said yesterday, and actually created a reminder for myself today to send an email to "kick my fellow members in the butt"...

2018-07-13 12:41:23 GMT <AxelFaust> Regarding the webinar I only said that "I don't think it will happen before Sept" to give us time to actually constitute...

2018-07-13 12:49:07 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I have sent Boris an email some days ago, but he has not answered me

2018-07-13 12:49:32 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I wish I could attend the OH yesterday, but I had some problems and was not available at the time

2018-07-13 14:14:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <DavidWebster> @digcat - that inject.preload.js error doesn't look familiar - a quick google shows some relationship between inject.preload.js errors and an ad blocker being used. Do you get the same issue if you disable AdBlocker?

2018-07-13 14:18:10 GMT <alfresco-discord> <DavidWebster> @digcat -the StrobeMedia lib error is a known issue - feel free to raise a ticket for it, but to be honest, the Share team is struggling a little with its maintenance load at the moment and an issue like that is unlikely to make the top of the list.

2018-07-13 14:25:49 GMT <qwebirc36894> what is main difference between actions,rules and behaviours ??

2018-07-13 20:16:55 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> hi @DavidWebster thank you for checking those out, i tried disabling the adblocker on chrome, but still shows that error, although in firefox its not, IE it is, weird. re the strobemedia library, yes understand, low priority as not causing any issues, other than the console message. the pdfjs error, again only showing in chrome/ie and not in firefox, looks like something to do with pdfjs and chrome,
