2018-09-04 12:11:29 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> @Loftux really cool

2018-09-04 12:13:40 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> @Loftux it is nice you fixed https://github.com/loftuxab/alfresco-ubuntu-install/issues/95

2018-09-04 12:14:25 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> @douglascrp Yeah, just took some time...

2018-09-04 12:14:36 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> no problem at all

2018-09-04 12:15:08 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> Removed support for 14.04 as well

2018-09-04 12:15:16 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> I was typing that right now

2018-09-04 12:15:26 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> I am reviewing the changes

2018-09-04 12:15:44 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> JOD converter already

2018-09-04 12:16:45 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> and I see you upgraded libreoffice

2018-09-04 12:16:51 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> was that because of jod?

2018-09-04 12:17:03 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> BTW, why are you not on the Alfresco channel instead?

2018-09-04 12:17:06 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> or because you found it better than the old version we were using?

2018-09-04 12:17:43 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> I don't know :D

2018-09-04 12:17:43 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> I have both logged in, and this was the first one I clicked

2018-09-04 12:18:49 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> No extensive testing of libreoffice, but seem to work ok and fast

2018-09-04 12:19:09 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> Still chokes on that test pdf ...

2018-09-04 12:24:40 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> yes

2018-09-04 12:24:55 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> so, because of that, I was going to test OnlyOffice for the transformation

2018-09-04 12:25:09 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> I mean, from MS Office formats into PDF

2018-09-04 12:25:18 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> in my tests, it worked really well

2018-09-04 12:26:57 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> Can probably add that if there is a simple way, it does require an additional server?

2018-09-04 12:27:19 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> well, it requires LibreOffice to be installed as a service

2018-09-04 12:27:33 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> for the alfresco part, the cetra3 integration does the job

2018-09-04 12:28:58 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> So onlyoffice still uses LIbreoffice? What is gained then?

2018-09-04 12:29:12 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> it is even possible to use OnlyOffice for the preview, and with that, the transformation to PDF is not even required

2018-09-04 12:29:32 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> onlyoffice still uses LIbreoffice? I ddin't get that

2018-09-04 12:29:38 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> ah, sorry... it was my mistake

2018-09-04 12:29:48 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> well, it requires OnlyOffice to be installed as a service

2018-09-04 12:29:56 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> ahh, ok

2018-09-04 12:29:59 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> I thought something and typed another 馃槃

2018-09-04 12:30:55 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> @Loftux about this one https://github.com/loftuxab/alfresco-ubuntu-install/blob/master/scripts/alfresco-service.sh#L25

2018-09-04 12:30:56 GMT <alfbot> Title:alfresco-ubuntu-install/alfresco-service.sh at master 路 loftuxab/alfresco-ubuntu-install 路 GitHub (at github.com)

2018-09-04 12:31:05 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> as the comment states, that was recommended for solr4

2018-09-04 12:31:17 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> as solr6 is now independent, why not to use a better GC config?

2018-09-04 12:31:45 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> You are right, didn't review that

2018-09-04 12:31:58 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> I have been using this -XX:+UseG1GC -XX:+UseStringDeduplication

2018-09-04 12:32:23 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> following @AFaust recommendation

2018-09-04 12:33:50 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> This one is interesting, but maybe more for Docker images, -XX:+UnlockExperimentalVMOptions -XX:+UseCGroupMemoryLimitForHeap

2018-09-04 12:34:20 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> It automatically allocates memory based on what is available

2018-09-04 12:34:59 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> that would be good, as you said, for docker, where you "should" have all you need for the specific service

2018-09-04 12:35:17 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> but for a normal server, with more services running, I don't thing that is a good idea to let it manage that

2018-09-04 12:35:54 GMT <AFaust> Though UseCGroupMemoryLimitForHeap is not really relevant if you already set Xms/Xmx (which is a common best practice)

2018-09-04 12:36:41 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> @Loftux for this one, https://github.com/loftuxab/alfresco-ubuntu-install/blob/master/scripts/iptables.sh

2018-09-04 12:36:42 GMT <alfbot> Title:alfresco-ubuntu-install/iptables.sh at master 路 loftuxab/alfresco-ubuntu-install 路 GitHub (at github.com)

2018-09-04 12:36:50 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> have you considered blocking the external access to solr?

2018-09-04 12:37:05 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> as it now is configured to run without SSL?

2018-09-04 12:37:12 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> it is doing to be open, right?

2018-09-04 12:37:19 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> it is going to be open, right?

2018-09-04 12:38:16 GMT <AFaust> And @douglascrp: To be honest, I use G1GC + UseStringDeduplication for Repository and Share. I have not yet used it for SOLR6....

2018-09-04 12:38:35 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> @AFaust that is the case with the script

2018-09-04 12:38:49 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> if we change it, it will be only for alfresco and share

2018-09-04 12:39:13 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> Yeah noticed that one. And should probably be protected since no ssl, although the Solr4 used standard Alfresco cert and was a lot more secure since the can be downloaded

2018-09-04 12:39:35 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> yes, indeed

2018-09-04 12:40:30 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> Not a lot more I meant

2018-09-04 12:41:21 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> First bug report, doesn't work to install Oracle java on 18.04 with the script

2018-09-04 12:50:02 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> Yes, I just saw it

2018-09-04 12:50:19 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> as you changed the libreoffice version, there is one more issue that can be closed

2018-09-04 13:03:08 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> Becomes a maintenance issue to use Oracle Java, since the install method is different for 16.04 and 18.04. Any disadvantage to switch to OpenJDK for the Ubuntu install script?

2018-09-04 13:03:52 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I don't know about any problem with it

2018-09-04 13:03:58 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I used it before, with no issues

2018-09-04 13:06:20 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> Wouldn't surprise me if package names have changed between versions anyway 馃檮

2018-09-04 13:55:30 GMT <Tichodroma> Funny, bee-bot is talking to alfresco-discord who is talking to himself

2018-09-04 16:36:47 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Sorry Tichodroma, but I did not resist to publish it... too funny.

2018-09-04 19:14:51 GMT <alfresco-discord> <edw> Does anyone know where the [sortable] source is located? I've been search the adf source code to no luck. Any help is appreciated.

2018-09-04 19:15:03 GMT <alfresco-discord> <edw> [sortable] directive.

2018-09-04 19:26:09 GMT <bee-bot> <yreg> @edw probably better to ask here : https://gitter.im/Alfresco/alfresco-ng2-components

2018-09-04 19:30:53 GMT <bee-bot> <yreg> @edw I think it is a class member not a directive, check : https://github.com/Alfresco/alfresco-ng2-components/blob/54fbe61c08d0e005d72ff15d83c6cde2ede190ee/docs/core/data-column.component.md#class-members

2018-09-04 20:32:52 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> any idea on how to change the recent activies email subject in the 5.2 version?

2018-09-04 20:41:09 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> yes, I know that file

2018-09-04 20:41:15 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> but using the extension folder for that is not working

2018-09-04 20:41:31 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> I even trying to define a custom bean including the extension version, but nothing changes

2018-09-04 20:41:40 GMT <bee-bot> <yreg> @AFaust Are you still avoiding the public REST API ?

2018-09-04 20:41:51 GMT <bee-bot> <douglascrp> I mean, something that used to work with alfresco 4.2 does not work anymore

2018-09-04 20:43:04 GMT <AFaust> yreg: I am not specifically "avoiding" the Public REST API - just haven't had any use case where the limited API fit, especially given its lack of transactionality for non-trivial interactions

2018-09-04 20:43:52 GMT <bee-bot> <yreg> @AFaust here is one more reason for you not to use it : https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/browse/ALF-22031

2018-09-04 20:44:13 GMT <AFaust> Muahaha...

2018-09-04 20:44:19 GMT <bee-bot> <yreg> I have actually experienced that bug both with lock and put content

2018-09-04 20:49:28 GMT <AFaust> Well.... it's not surprising that exceptions are silently ignored. Already used to that from APS. Too bad that ACS at least cares about exceptions and still rolls back even if exceptions are ignored
