2018-09-14 04:55:25 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Arun> I want to upload the file in Process task in Alfresco process workspace from Alfresco repository. I get an option in ADF Application to upload from "Local storage" as well as from "Alfresco-1" as I have configured form field to upload both the sources while creating the form. But when I click on upload from "Alfresco1", I get no response and nothing happens. Is there any way to Upload the file from

2018-09-14 07:36:19 GMT <yreg> Good morning good people !

2018-09-14 07:41:26 GMT <bmejias> good morning yreg!

2018-09-14 07:41:37 GMT <yreg> Hey Boris !

2018-09-14 07:41:45 GMT <yreg> Has been a long time since we've seen you

2018-09-14 07:41:52 GMT <yreg> How do you do ?

2018-09-14 07:43:05 GMT <alfresco-discord> <RichetDan> Good morning!

2018-09-14 07:45:20 GMT <bmejias> what do you mean a long time?

2018-09-14 07:45:34 GMT <bmejias> oh, what day is it?

2018-09-14 07:45:41 GMT <yreg> I mean you do no longer hang out here on IRC

2018-09-14 07:46:04 GMT <yreg> I guess the question is Which month :P

2018-09-14 07:46:13 GMT <bmejias> By Zarquon.... is 14 September already....

2018-09-14 07:46:17 GMT <angelborroy> ~seen bmejias

2018-09-14 07:46:17 GMT <alfbot> angelborroy: bmejias was last seen in #alfresco 3 seconds ago: <bmejias> By Zarquon.... is 14 September already....

2018-09-14 07:46:25 GMT <angelborroy> ups!

2018-09-14 07:46:25 GMT <bmejias> hahaha

2018-09-14 07:46:36 GMT <bmejias> you see angelborroy, I've been here all the time

2018-09-14 07:46:50 GMT <angelborroy> that’s what I was trying to demonstrate :D

2018-09-14 07:47:05 GMT <bmejias> well, anyway, considering the date, I might have travelled in time or something

2018-09-14 07:47:20 GMT <bmejias> thanks angelborroy

2018-09-14 07:47:44 GMT <alfresco-discord> <RichetDan> Thank you @angel.borroy, I think protecting solr web console is very important, non only from the outside. from there it is possible to see inside the full text index.

2018-09-14 07:48:03 GMT <bmejias> so, what's up? I'm good, a bit tired after a challenging project, but doing well now

2018-09-14 07:48:16 GMT <yreg> @RichetDan, angelborroy I saw your questions the other day

2018-09-14 07:48:32 GMT <yreg> Regarding security of solr communication while using docker

2018-09-14 07:48:44 GMT <angelborroy> @RichetDan I was not referring to SOLR Web Console

2018-09-14 07:48:48 GMT <bmejias> what about you guys? What news? I saw our friend David Webster is no longer with Alfresco :,(

2018-09-14 07:48:49 GMT <angelborroy> but to Alfresco SOLR API

2018-09-14 07:48:55 GMT <yreg> And I think solr ports should never be exposed outside of the docker network

2018-09-14 07:49:04 GMT <angelborroy> right

2018-09-14 07:49:10 GMT <angelborroy> but what about /alfresco/api/solr

2018-09-14 07:49:12 GMT <angelborroy> ?

2018-09-14 07:49:59 GMT <yreg> I thought all/most installations had reverse proxies preventing access to those URLs

2018-09-14 07:50:09 GMT <angelborroy> right

2018-09-14 07:50:14 GMT <angelborroy> This is what I’m doing

2018-09-14 07:50:23 GMT <angelborroy> But I’m using Docker Compose

2018-09-14 07:50:27 GMT <angelborroy> What about Kubernetes?

2018-09-14 07:50:35 GMT <yreg> In my experience, even alfresco ports should not be exposed

2018-09-14 07:50:41 GMT <yreg> Only reverse proxy

2018-09-14 07:50:46 GMT <angelborroy> agree

2018-09-14 07:51:12 GMT <yreg> I thought the helm charts had the reverse proxy confirmation provided OOTB

2018-09-14 07:51:23 GMT <angelborroy> nope

2018-09-14 07:51:28 GMT <angelborroy> they haven't

2018-09-14 07:51:35 GMT <angelborroy> This is why I’m raising the issue

2018-09-14 07:51:46 GMT <alfresco-discord> <RichetDan> Ok but solr alfresco api doesnt expose sensitive data.

2018-09-14 07:51:53 GMT <angelborroy> really?

2018-09-14 07:52:22 GMT <alfresco-discord> <RichetDan> I'm wrong?

2018-09-14 07:52:52 GMT <angelborroy> This API is used for SOLR to index new content, track model changes and so on

2018-09-14 07:53:00 GMT <angelborroy> Without authentication

2018-09-14 07:53:22 GMT <angelborroy> This is why they were using an SSL Certificate to authenticate this operations by default

2018-09-14 07:53:58 GMT <angelborroy> yreg you’re right

2018-09-14 07:54:02 GMT <angelborroy> :D

2018-09-14 07:57:29 GMT <yreg> angelborroy, it also exposes the system to DoS

2018-09-14 07:57:43 GMT <yreg> Since solr tracking is really hard on performance

2018-09-14 07:58:09 GMT <yreg> And if you fake tons of solr trading requests you can easily cause the system to crash ;-)

2018-09-14 07:58:47 GMT <alfresco-discord> <RichetDan> API must certainly be protected, even if it seems to me that at worst the invocation of these can corrupt the index. But also the problem of the console of solr seems relevant to me. Anyone who can connect can have information on the content and metadata of the nodes present in Alfresco.

2018-09-14 07:58:48 GMT <yreg> Well it was there all along for the /s/ if I read that diff right

2018-09-14 07:59:18 GMT <yreg> Only service/wcs/wcservice were not covered before

2018-09-14 07:59:30 GMT <yreg> So it was incomplete

2018-09-14 08:00:00 GMT <yreg> (Personally I think I only tried the url using /s/ some time ago, and assumed all were covered when I got 403

2018-09-14 08:00:05 GMT <yreg> But nice catch Angel ;-)

2018-09-14 08:00:40 GMT <angelborroy> @RichetDan I use to protect SOLR Web Console with a simple htpass

2018-09-14 08:01:29 GMT <yreg> angelborroy, prior to ASS 1.2, all solr versions shipped by alfresco had a remote code execution vulnerability

2018-09-14 08:01:45 GMT <angelborroy> Is it fixed in 1.2?

2018-09-14 08:02:05 GMT <yreg> I had a dev server with that console exposed, and I ended up mining monero for some hacker

2018-09-14 08:02:29 GMT <yreg> Yes, I got a confirmation from harry, a week after I raised the issue

2018-09-14 08:02:49 GMT <yreg> It is confirmed to be solved in 1.2 and in AIE

2018-09-14 08:03:15 GMT <yreg> All prior releases were vulnerable

2018-09-14 08:03:29 GMT <yreg> I can lookup CVE for you if you like

2018-09-14 08:03:57 GMT <angelborroy> You know that my customers are not that paranoic

2018-09-14 08:03:58 GMT <angelborroy> :D

2018-09-14 08:04:18 GMT <AFaust> Ehm... I would have expected some sort of announcement if they fixed a CVE like that...

2018-09-14 08:04:36 GMT <angelborroy> I have no Alfresco accessible from The Internet

2018-09-14 08:05:08 GMT <yreg> Well, if a hacker could download any binary to their system and have it run without restrictions (behind their firewall) they should

2018-09-14 08:05:20 GMT <angelborroy> Alfresco Search Services 1.2

2018-09-14 08:05:21 GMT <angelborroy> The following changes were incorporated:

2018-09-14 08:05:22 GMT <angelborroy> Solr upgraded from 6.3 to 6.6

2018-09-14 08:05:23 GMT <angelborroy> Containerized deployment as part of the new ACS 6.0 release

2018-09-14 08:05:24 GMT <angelborroy> Bug fixes

2018-09-14 08:05:39 GMT <angelborroy> I suppose the CVE is inside the point “Bug fixes”

2018-09-14 08:06:09 GMT <yreg> Well they were aware of its existence, and they though they solved it back in 1.1

2018-09-14 08:06:10 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> That is a strong assumption ^^

2018-09-14 08:06:26 GMT <AFaust> yreg: Is it https://www.cvedetails.com/cve/CVE-2017-12629/ ?

2018-09-14 08:09:51 GMT <angelborroy> https://myalfresco.force.com/support/servlet/fileField?id=0BED0000000PL8x

2018-09-14 08:11:17 GMT <yreg> I got an email saying that me reporting that did speedup the release of ASS 1.2 which will have the fix

2018-09-14 08:13:44 GMT <alfresco-discord> <RichetDan> Thanks to everyone, now the scenario is clearer. It remains to me to see how to include the ssl protection among the containers in the solution with docker-compose.

2018-09-14 08:20:00 GMT <yreg> angelborroy, You are right, I should probably be testing again since I found that the vulnerability is supposed to have been fixed 10 months ago by this commit : https://github.com/Alfresco/SearchServices/commit/d0d450adc62a011ed51bf998eed3ef7c2c0a381d

2018-09-14 08:34:03 GMT <Tichodroma> Has anybody seen this strange behaviour? 1) Edit properties of a document. 2) Save the properties. 3) /share/page/context/shared/document-details?nodeRef=... is loaded. 4) XHR request for the properties HTML is made: /share/service/components/form?htmlid=template_x002e_document-metadata_x002e_document-details_x0023_default-formContainer&itemKind=node&itemId=...&formId=null&mode=view

2018-09-14 08:34:23 GMT <Tichodroma> The HTML returned by the XHR request is not current, it contains *old* propery values.

2018-09-14 08:35:01 GMT <Tichodroma> Of course the property values are saved, a hard reload of document-details shows them

2018-09-14 08:35:18 GMT <angelborroy> Tichodroma what Alfresco version? have you tried with different browsers?

2018-09-14 08:36:19 GMT <Tichodroma> 5.1, not yet

2018-09-14 08:36:58 GMT <angelborroy> I don’t remember something similar, so probably is related with the browser o some other “external” cache

2018-09-14 08:37:39 GMT <Tichodroma> I've just tried with Chromium on Ubuntu: no problem

2018-09-14 08:37:57 GMT <Tichodroma> OK, I'll try with the browser/OS the $CUSTOMER is using

2018-09-14 08:50:26 GMT <rmls> If anyone with AAAR experience has a minute

2018-09-14 08:50:49 GMT <rmls> It is possible to add new properties to the extraction system by adding a line to dm_custom_metadata

2018-09-14 08:50:56 GMT <rmls> And this can be the property of an aspect

2018-09-14 08:51:05 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Yes

2018-09-14 08:51:10 GMT <rmls> But is it possible to add *just* the existence of an aspect?

2018-09-14 08:51:23 GMT <rmls> i.e. I have an aspect without properties

2018-09-14 08:51:30 GMT <rmls> And I want to know if it's present

2018-09-14 08:51:37 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Nope

2018-09-14 08:51:43 GMT <rmls> (more specifically, cm:personDisabled)

2018-09-14 08:52:06 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> The extraction retrieve metadata

2018-09-14 08:52:13 GMT <rmls> Ok

2018-09-14 08:52:37 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Aspects and types are used to setup DB tables but properties are the fields

2018-09-14 08:52:41 GMT <rmls> I should probably hack it together Alfresco side then, a behaviour or something that adds a property to each disabled user, and then have AAAR look for that new property

2018-09-14 08:52:56 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Yep

2018-09-14 08:53:00 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> It will work

2018-09-14 08:53:03 GMT <rmls> Ok thanks for the feedback

2018-09-14 08:53:08 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> No prob

2018-09-14 08:59:37 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mbui> Anyone know if Alfresco supports email archiving with gmail in Alfresco i.e. drag and drop?

2018-09-14 09:00:06 GMT <yreg> @mbui not out of the box

2018-09-14 09:00:16 GMT <yreg> There is a few extensions that could do that though

2018-09-14 09:00:25 GMT <angelborroy> How about IMAP?

2018-09-14 09:00:35 GMT <yreg> Or simply browsing alfresco as an imap folder and drag in there

2018-09-14 09:01:04 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mbui> Thanks, will look into that.

2018-09-14 09:01:23 GMT <yreg> But then you will need a mail client, (I don't thing gmail interface would do)

2018-09-14 09:04:09 GMT <angelborroy> yreg I didn’t test it, but it should be possible to configure the Alfresco IMAP account in Gmail web application

2018-09-14 09:04:53 GMT <angelborroy> So you can drag & drop emails from Gmail to Alfresco via browser

2018-09-14 09:14:00 GMT <yreg> That would be quite interesting

2018-09-14 09:14:54 GMT <yreg> @mbui, don't forget that map and co run in a single threaded mode, so don't count on it being performant if your use case requires multiple users connecting simultaneously

2018-09-14 09:19:31 GMT <yreg> angelborroy, I couldn't locate the option to mount an external imap location to gmail

2018-09-14 09:19:46 GMT <yreg> By browsing the setting

2018-09-14 09:20:02 GMT <yreg> But I agree that some 3rd party plugins could offer that feature

2018-09-14 09:20:04 GMT <angelborroy> Setting > Accounts > Check mail from other accounts

2018-09-14 09:20:55 GMT <yreg> But that copies content to GMAIL, not a two way sync AFAIK

2018-09-14 09:27:00 GMT <angelborroy> you’re right

2018-09-14 09:27:12 GMT <angelborroy> As I said, I didn’t test it :D

2018-09-14 09:59:30 GMT <angelborroy> @RichetDan Probably you’ll find this useful: https://github.com/keensoft/docker-alfresco/commit/5aecf9207832f75c0d038adfccbaf98de2cc956c

2018-09-14 10:07:38 GMT <alfresco-discord> <RichetDan> wow! thank you so much

2018-09-14 10:12:17 GMT <alfresco-discord> <RichetDan> this nginx configuration protects also share/proxy calls?

2018-09-14 10:12:45 GMT <angelborroy> What kind of class?

2018-09-14 10:12:51 GMT <angelborroy> class > calls

2018-09-14 10:13:30 GMT <angelborroy> (short answer is NO)

2018-09-14 10:14:25 GMT <angelborroy> In fact it’s configured to reject every URL including “api/solr” and so

2018-09-14 10:15:02 GMT <angelborroy> I could be more precise with the location adding “/alfresco/“

2018-09-14 10:15:22 GMT <angelborroy> On the other hand, obviously, the project is open for PRs ;-)

2018-09-14 10:33:06 GMT <alfresco-discord> <RichetDan> thank you. looking at the helm charts seems protecting throug nginx is also the official line:

2018-09-14 10:33:30 GMT <alfresco-discord> <RichetDan> location ~ ^(/./proxy/alfresco/api/solr/.)$ {return 403 ;}

2018-09-14 10:37:12 GMT <alfresco-discord> <RichetDan> which are the reasons that led to avoid setting a strong protection through a certificate between alfresco-solr? just performance?

2018-09-14 10:37:38 GMT <angelborroy> IMHO yes

2018-09-14 10:38:02 GMT <angelborroy> SOLR is pre-configured to ping Alfresco Repository every 5 seconds

2018-09-14 10:40:09 GMT <angelborroy> And also that the certificate by default is used by (mostly) every Alfresco installation in the world

2018-09-14 10:40:39 GMT <angelborroy> So it would become less secure to use default certificate (provided by Alfresco artifacts) than going plain HTTP :D

2018-09-14 10:41:17 GMT <angelborroy> Also changing that certificate is not that easy… https://angelborroy.wordpress.com/2016/06/15/configuring-alfresco-ssl-certificates/

2018-09-14 14:57:08 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> Lol

2018-09-14 14:57:19 GMT <angelborroy> @MorganP using a simple Let’s Encrypt shell script is enough

2018-09-14 14:57:28 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> I sincerely hope our internal IT has something similar

2018-09-14 14:57:30 GMT <angelborroy> And far cheaper

2018-09-14 14:57:59 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> And I want to know there is another ongoing issue

2018-09-14 15:08:49 GMT <Tichodroma> AFaust: regarding your OOTP post: What do you mean by "own" and "server" when you talk about Discord? AFAIK discord.gg is operated by Discord, the company. OOTB does not control it in any way, nor does it "own" anything.

2018-09-14 15:14:21 GMT <AFaust> The only point where I talked about "our own Discord server" was the point about it being easier for people that already use the Alfresco Discord to also collaborate on the OOTBee Discord. That use of "own" did not imply any legal / physical ownership or whatever...

2018-09-14 15:15:04 GMT <Tichodroma> OK. What do you mean by "server"? Hosting an instance of the server application on own infrastructure?

2018-09-14 15:15:37 GMT <AFaust> And "server" is the Discord terminology for a logical separate space with channels and a dedicated user group administering that space

2018-09-14 15:16:04 GMT <Tichodroma> This unusual use of "server" would be interesting to understand your post.

2018-09-14 15:16:21 GMT <AFaust> And I believe I actually wrote in the very first point that the difference between Discord and Mattermost is that Mattermost would be hosted on our infrastructure, whereas Discord is not.

2018-09-14 15:16:47 GMT <Tichodroma> That's why I ask. The wording is confusing.

2018-09-14 15:17:04 GMT <AFaust> And I especially used quotation marks around my first use of server in the email to indicate it is not used in the common meaning...

2018-09-14 15:17:22 GMT <Tichodroma> True. An explanation would have helped.

2018-09-14 15:17:40 GMT <AFaust> It is right there in the first bullet point.... I don't understand the confusion...

2018-09-14 15:17:50 GMT <AFaust> Sorry, second bullet point

2018-09-14 15:18:44 GMT <Tichodroma> Got it.

2018-09-14 15:19:40 GMT <Tichodroma> How about mentioning the ugly bot appearance here in #alfresco?

2018-09-14 15:20:33 GMT <Tichodroma> You presented only pro arguments even though cons exist and have been discussed here.

2018-09-14 15:23:06 GMT <AFaust> Well, my point was to outline why we chose Discord, and the mail was already quite long. There also would be no point in asking for a discussion if I already provided every talking point that other people may have.

2018-09-14 15:23:41 GMT <Tichodroma> OK, let's wait for feedback.

2018-09-14 15:24:22 GMT <AFaust> The point in the matter of the bot(s) is this: Do you want to stay connected with the rest of the community even when you do not want to make the switch to Discord? Then you will have to live with the bot(s). If you say "Screw those guys, I want to stay here undisturbed of what they do over there", and that is the majority opinion, the bot(s) can be killed.

2018-09-14 15:25:53 GMT <AFaust> As far as I am aware, there just isn't any valid way to do this IRC <-> Discord sync into either the Alfresco or OOTBee Discord any better.

2018-09-14 15:26:49 GMT <AFaust> And the OOTBee Discord channel that is synched to here has already been marked as read-only, so no new content should be posted by that bot here, as long as yreg and douglascrp can remember to not accidentally use it (as admins in Discord, they can not be restricted to read-only)

2018-09-14 15:28:55 GMT <AFaust> WIth regards to "Let's wait for feedback" - I invite you to be the first one. There has been some private feedback from a couple of people we have talked to that indicates that everyone is in the same mode of "let's have somebody else response first", so it is a deadlock where nobody ends up giving any feedback.

2018-09-14 15:29:30 GMT <Tichodroma> Maybe we need an IRC->mailinglist bridge :p

2018-09-14 15:30:57 GMT <AFaust> We also already have had a discussion about the question of how many people still receive the mailing list due to address changes or spam filters, and are looking at ways to reach more people...

2018-09-14 15:31:13 GMT <AFaust> But an IRC mailing list bridge has not been suggested so far... I'll put that on the task list ;)

2018-09-14 15:33:56 GMT <Tichodroma> Does the mailinglist support screenshot attachments?

2018-09-14 15:35:25 GMT <AFaust> I haven't tried myself, so can't say... I expect it supports attachments in the general distribution of messages, but I would not bet on those images being shown in the web view of the archived mails.

2018-09-14 15:35:37 GMT <Tichodroma> let's try ...

2018-09-14 15:36:14 GMT <Tichodroma> works

2018-09-14 15:36:58 GMT <AFaust> I will not respond to that trick question. Of course I can spot who is talking to whom...

2018-09-14 15:37:09 GMT <Tichodroma> eagle eyes

2018-09-14 15:39:22 GMT <AFaust> The point I made earlier still applies. If everyone is fine with abandoning #alfresco on IRC and cutting it off, this can stop. It would get significantly quieter...

2018-09-14 15:39:49 GMT <AFaust> Those that stay here would not be disturbed by what is being discussed on Discord.

2018-09-14 15:40:16 GMT <AFaust> But that aspect is actually a discussion to be had with Alfresco / Bhagyas since this relates to the Alfresco Discord, not the OOTBee Discord.

2018-09-14 15:40:34 GMT <Tichodroma> That does not sound like a solution that would bring the community together.

2018-09-14 15:40:45 GMT <AFaust> Right, and that's why we have the bots

2018-09-14 15:42:01 GMT <Tichodroma> ^^^ are there *two* Discord "servers": Alfresco and OOTB?

2018-09-14 15:43:11 GMT <AFaust> As I addressed in my 5th bullet point in the mail, yes

2018-09-14 15:43:29 GMT <Tichodroma> You are right, the mail was long enough already.

2018-09-14 15:43:48 GMT <Tichodroma> OK, time to shut this down. Weekend :)

2018-09-14 15:43:50 GMT <AFaust> Even without footnotes explaining "server"...

2018-09-14 15:45:03 GMT * AFaust feels with Tichodroma - only that he still has to do some of the work that had to take second place today to OOTBee stuff...

2018-09-14 18:08:23 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> guys, I need to set a "default value" for a property, based on the site user currently is when he is going to create a new document

2018-09-14 18:09:02 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> based on this answer from AFaust https://community.alfresco.com/thread/232968-how-set-a-hidden-field-with-default-value-on-module-extension-surf-forms#comment-819988 , I thought about using form filter, form processor or something like that

2018-09-14 18:09:04 GMT <alfbot> Title:How set a default value of a form field on a mo... | Alfresco Community (at community.alfresco.com)

2018-09-14 18:09:07 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> what do you think?

2018-09-14 18:09:43 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> if the user is inside the "Administration" site, the documentType property should receive the value "AD"

2018-09-14 18:09:56 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> for "Finance", it should be "FI"

2018-09-14 18:10:22 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> any tip before I start working using this idea?

2018-09-14 19:18:21 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> hey @douglascrp are you meaning if the user is the Admnistration group, sounds a bit like jeffs addon https://github.com/jpotts/share-site-creators in that a member of a GROUP can create a site

2018-09-14 19:18:22 GMT <alfbot> Title:GitHub - jpotts/share-site-creators: An Alfresco add-on that limits site creation to those in a specific group. (at github.com)

2018-09-14 19:19:31 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> @digcat No, I mean, if the user is browsing inside a specific site, like "Administration", when the user decides to create a new document, using a custom type, the form should present one of the properties already filled with a fixed value, like "AD"

2018-09-14 19:20:05 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> ahh sorry ok

2018-09-14 19:20:23 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> but if the same user is browsing in a different site called "Finance", the same property, for the same custom type, should be filled with a different value, "FI"

2018-09-14 19:20:47 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> so, a custom type, being created in different sites, will have the field with a different default value

2018-09-14 19:21:00 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> this is why I cannot use the default value inside the content model

2018-09-14 19:21:29 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I'm already playing with the form filter

2018-09-14 19:22:53 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> yes, ok, sounds like form filter should be the way to go,

2018-09-14 21:02:42 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> @digcat yes, that works

2018-09-14 21:02:59 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> now I just have to work on getting the current site and doing the decision on what to use as the default value

2018-09-14 21:02:59 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> nice

2018-09-14 21:23:56 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> the problem now, how do I know in which site I am 😄

2018-09-14 21:24:04 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> there no information in context that I know about

2018-09-14 21:29:18 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> so i saw this https://gist.github.com/CesarCapillas/6f7692a1d657ce43851598ca9d5ecaa1#file-list-site-user-role-js

2018-09-14 21:31:29 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> when the form filter is executed, I can not find a reference for what site the user is browsing

2018-09-14 21:31:38 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> ahh,

2018-09-14 21:31:51 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> if I could get the destination param, then I would be able to get the folder, and by that, figure out the site

2018-09-14 21:31:58 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> yep

2018-09-14 21:32:00 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> i am trying to find something

2018-09-14 21:37:13 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> hmm still see that cert issue https://blogs.alfresco.com/wp/developer/2011/11/01/spring-surf-presets/
