Daily Log for #alfresco

2018-09-12 06:02:15 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> Yes, I have it on several 5.2 installations as well without issue

2018-09-12 06:19:49 GMT <yreg> Morning everyone!

2018-09-12 06:20:09 GMT <yreg> @fcorti is the DBP already out ?

2018-09-12 06:48:25 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Morning

2018-09-12 06:48:35 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> If you all with marketing: yes

2018-09-12 06:48:39 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> πŸ˜ƒ

2018-09-12 06:49:02 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> What is that you might need in particular?

2018-09-12 06:49:39 GMT <yreg> I have been waiting for it since the announcement during DevCon2018

2018-09-12 06:49:42 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> (The message before was: if you talk with marketing, it is)

2018-09-12 06:50:11 GMT <yreg> I want to play with it a bit, and check if it would be useful for any of my clients

2018-09-12 06:50:30 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> And it is, but do you need in particular?

2018-09-12 06:50:38 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Aps is out

2018-09-12 06:50:41 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Ava is out

2018-09-12 06:50:45 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Acs

2018-09-12 06:50:58 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Adf can work with both

2018-09-12 06:51:20 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> This is DBP but we are working to do more

2018-09-12 06:51:30 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> It is a journey

2018-09-12 06:51:41 GMT <yreg> I was more referring to the gateway in front of all that soldering out all loose ends

2018-09-12 06:51:50 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Got it

2018-09-12 06:52:01 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> I think we need an acronym bot...

2018-09-12 06:52:07 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> And SSO maybe

2018-09-12 06:52:30 GMT <yreg> I though AIS was out already to address that

2018-09-12 06:52:47 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Correct

2018-09-12 06:53:15 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Gateway is under development

2018-09-12 06:53:35 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> A first release will happen the year

2018-09-12 06:53:41 GMT <yreg> AIE was also out a week back or so

2018-09-12 06:53:53 GMT <yreg> Good to know

2018-09-12 06:53:55 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Yep

2018-09-12 06:54:07 GMT *** DragiBus_ is now known as DragiBus

2018-09-12 06:54:11 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> But a lot more will come

2018-09-12 06:55:16 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> A development solution for the DBP, for example

2018-09-12 06:55:20 GMT <yreg> I was asking because one of my clients are planning a project for adding an api gateway in front of their alfresco instances and I thought we could reuse whatever alfresco is providing, or at least align with that, but I guess it's a little bit soon to consider the alfresco product now

2018-09-12 06:55:50 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Mmm... yes, I agree

2018-09-12 06:56:47 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> But duplicating the effort does not make a lot of sense

2018-09-12 07:05:13 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> Good morning

2018-09-12 07:05:15 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> What's DBP?

2018-09-12 07:06:49 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> ahh. got it

2018-09-12 07:08:05 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Digital Businesses Platform

2018-09-12 07:09:02 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Acs aps adf aie ais ags....maybe I missed something

2018-09-12 07:11:18 GMT <yreg> ASS

2018-09-12 07:14:04 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Aie... ass does sound welll πŸ˜ƒ

2018-09-12 07:15:24 GMT <yreg> Yeah I know, it is ambiguous

2018-09-12 07:15:39 GMT <yreg> But I meant Search, not Share services

2018-09-12 07:39:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> ooohhh... there is a missing piece

2018-09-12 07:39:24 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> ACA... but it's not official (yet) πŸ˜‰

2018-09-12 08:36:48 GMT <AFaust> @Francesco Cort: And what the heck is "AVA"? Alfresco Virus Application?

2018-09-12 08:37:33 GMT <AFaust> And I believe you missed AAS for the SSO bit (Alfresco Authentication Service)...

2018-09-12 08:37:47 GMT <AFaust> Though SSO in general has been mentioned

2018-09-12 08:38:12 GMT <AFaust> When will DBP be renamed in AES (Alfresco Everything Service)?

2018-09-12 08:46:41 GMT <yreg> AFaust that's actually Alfresco Identity Service

2018-09-12 08:46:53 GMT <yreg> So AIS not AAS

2018-09-12 08:47:28 GMT <AFaust> Ah - I took that as Alfresco Integration Services, which had been mentioned sometime in the past...

2018-09-12 08:48:19 GMT <AFaust> And the keycloak stuff was once being referred to as the Alfresco Authentication Server, so if they changed that phrasing since, of course it may confuse some people...

2018-09-12 09:24:19 GMT <yreg> Interesting, it seems like we have two service packs for ACS 6.0 already

2018-09-12 09:24:42 GMT <yreg> Well they look more like patches

2018-09-12 10:42:03 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> @AFaust AVA is a typo (with my cell phone)

2018-09-12 10:42:07 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> ACS is the right one.

2018-09-12 10:43:07 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Ehi community... two days ago me and Ole has an interview and this is the result:

2018-09-12 10:53:43 GMT <angelborroy> are you going to tweet about that?

2018-09-12 10:54:34 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> I was thinking to... any other suggestion?

2018-09-12 10:54:49 GMT <angelborroy> Nope, just waiting to retweet ;-)

2018-09-12 10:55:05 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Go ahead... no worries

2018-09-12 10:55:30 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Let’s be all evangelist please

2018-09-12 11:37:38 GMT <alfresco-discord> <new-user> Hi

2018-09-12 11:37:42 GMT <alfresco-discord> <new-user> does alfresco support content encryption for community version ?

2018-09-12 11:48:16 GMT <yreg> @new-user even for EE it was a buggy feature that came at a high cost

2018-09-12 11:48:35 GMT <yreg> And to answer your question, that's not available out of the box

2018-09-12 11:49:25 GMT <yreg> You could however use this community add-on to achieve the same in a more reliable way : https://github.com/Acosix/alfresco-simple-content-stores/wiki/Encrypting-Store

2018-09-12 11:49:26 GMT <alfbot> Title:Encrypting Store Β· Acosix/alfresco-simple-content-stores Wiki Β· GitHub (at github.com)

2018-09-12 12:48:38 GMT <alfresco-discord> <new-user> thanks a lot @yreg

2018-09-12 18:08:18 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Erik.whipp> Can someone tell me how I can execute a script in the DataDictionary/Scripts/ directory without the "execute script" action or the Javascript console in the admin console?

2018-09-12 18:20:44 GMT <yreg> @Erik.whipp can you elaborate

2018-09-12 18:21:10 GMT <yreg> What do you need to do ?

2018-09-12 18:21:13 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Erik.whipp> As I understand it, you can execute a script using a rule on a folder, but I don't quite understand how to actually execute a script I've written.

2018-09-12 18:21:42 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Erik.whipp> I want to export the contents of an alfresco content repository to an acp file using a script placed in the Data Dictionary/Scripts directory but I don't have access to the js-console

2018-09-12 18:21:47 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Erik.whipp> nor the action to execute js

2018-09-12 18:21:57 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Erik.whipp> so I wanted to know another method to execute a script I've created

2018-09-12 18:23:53 GMT <yreg> Ok, you can execute it using a rule, or you could deploy a WebScript to data dictionary with a JS controller

2018-09-12 18:24:09 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Erik.whipp> Right, my question is how can I execute it using a rule

2018-09-12 18:24:27 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Erik.whipp> When I go to manage rules on a folder and execute script and place my script there, do I need to have it run in the backgorund?

2018-09-12 18:24:33 GMT <yreg> Note that data dictionary is not a secure location and there is a lot of unsupported actions there

2018-09-12 18:24:44 GMT <yreg> Or say unsupported apis

2018-09-12 18:25:08 GMT <yreg> Ok you need to trigger the rule

2018-09-12 18:25:23 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Erik.whipp> Can I do that manually?

2018-09-12 18:25:24 GMT <yreg> By doing the action it listens to

2018-09-12 18:25:29 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Erik.whipp> Ok

2018-09-12 18:25:33 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Erik.whipp> Thank you

2018-09-12 18:25:38 GMT <yreg> (Create node, move node ...)

2018-09-12 19:24:44 GMT <alfresco-discord> <DravinX> Hey everyone, can someone tell me the proper way to edit the alfresco-global.properties file when using the new docker version?

2018-09-12 19:54:06 GMT <bee-bot> <yreg> @ DravinX I would recommend copying the file to the host, modify it there and then mount it back as a volume

2018-09-12 19:55:44 GMT <yreg> @DravinX the alternative would be to go the way alfresco seems to adopt : pulling out veto property override through JAVA_OPTS environment variable to directly set props like this "-Dkey=value"

2018-09-12 19:56:37 GMT <yreg> But that method can hit its limits fast, for instance as soon as you try to customise multiple instances of the same subsystem (for instance ldap) ..

2018-09-12 20:00:18 GMT <alfresco-discord> <DravinX> Dam, I guess I need to learn more about docker lol

2018-09-12 20:00:51 GMT <alfresco-discord> <DravinX> I just wanted to test out Smart Folders

2018-09-12 20:03:50 GMT <yreg> I think just adding them like this would do for now : https://github.com/Alfresco/acs-packaging/blob/724c2cebeeb6a688a02356136d3058eaa6db74fe/docker-alfresco/test/docker-compose.yml#L15

2018-09-12 20:04:33 GMT <alfresco-discord> <DravinX> Now that I can do!

2018-09-12 20:04:37 GMT <alfresco-discord> <DravinX> I will give that a try

2018-09-12 20:04:39 GMT <alfresco-discord> <DravinX> thank you!
