2018-10-26 07:11:30 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mars> I missed the office hours yesterday, there were very relevant questions on slido, is there any recording of the office hours or transcription of q&as?
2018-10-26 07:23:07 GMT <alfresco-discord> <LMattioli> @mars There was a change some month ago about Office hour: no more recordings. Some transcription is available here https://community.alfresco.com/docs/DOC-7942-office-hour-notes

2018-10-26 07:23:45 GMT <alfresco-discord> <LMattioli> Yesterday the main part was about Transactions
2018-10-26 07:24:07 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mars> ok @LMattioli did you get your questions answered?
2018-10-26 07:24:30 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mars> I have the exact same questions to ask Alfresco right now through partner channels
2018-10-26 07:25:21 GMT <alfresco-discord> <LMattioli> yes, in few words: docker-compose/Kubernetes/Helm publicy available are for developers. In a production environment you have to build your own material
2018-10-26 07:26:53 GMT <alfresco-discord> <LMattioli> Someone yesterday says that has a customer that is testing in production, but there were no Alfresco marketing person to confirm how many customers are testing in production the container-way
2018-10-26 07:27:56 GMT <alfresco-discord> <LMattioli> (this is what I have understood: I'm not so skilled in conversational English/American... maybe someone else could give you more details)
2018-10-26 07:28:18 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mars> Thanks alot @LMattioli
2018-10-26 07:28:27 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mars> Did they say something about JDK?
2018-10-26 07:30:08 GMT <alfresco-discord> <LMattioli> We finish time, we speak about it but the main sentiment was "we will see". Alfresco is already looking to openJDK but "we will see in future what happens"
2018-10-26 07:30:36 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mars> Ok 😃
2018-10-26 07:34:29 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> @LMattioli , @mars small correction : They said publicly available docker-compose was intended for dev hence a lot of open ports raising few security concerns
2018-10-26 07:34:54 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> helm charts/kubernetes is meant for prod hence their investment in the security for that deployment methods
2018-10-26 07:35:04 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mars> ok!
2018-10-26 07:35:32 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> but still one could fiddle with the setup and open up ports for development/test ... if needed
2018-10-26 07:35:50 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mars> I guess you should follow common recommendations on running docker images in production anyway and build your own customized solution
2018-10-26 07:36:04 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> @LMattioli actually a guy from Alfresco anwsered that during last TTL
2018-10-26 07:36:17 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> they said they are looking into moving to JDK
2018-10-26 07:36:25 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> 11 to be precise
2018-10-26 07:36:44 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mars> Oracle or Open?
2018-10-26 07:36:47 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> but he didn't give a time frame for the first version to be released with that
2018-10-26 07:36:52 GMT <angelborroy> OpenJDK
2018-10-26 07:36:53 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> openjdk
2018-10-26 07:36:57 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mars> Nice
2018-10-26 07:37:47 GMT <alfresco-discord> <LMattioli> Thanks! 👍
2018-10-26 08:04:43 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> @LMattioli At Xenit, we are using a custom docker-compose based setup in production since 2-3 years. Not the Alfresco pre-baked solution yet.
2018-10-26 08:06:08 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> My colleague @anghelutar presented details on the latest DEVCON in Lisbon.

2018-10-26 08:08:04 GMT <angelborroy> @Thijs 3 years?? From Alfresco 5.0.d?
2018-10-26 08:08:05 GMT <angelborroy> Wow
2018-10-26 08:08:25 GMT <angelborroy> We started with 5.1 and we thought we started earlier
2018-10-26 08:08:54 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> let me check
2018-10-26 08:10:50 GMT <angelborroy> https://github.com/keensoft/alfresco-docker-template/tree/master/4.2.c
2018-10-26 08:10:51 GMT <alfbot> Title:alfresco-docker-template/4.2.c at master · keensoft/alfresco-docker-template · GitHub (at github.com)
2018-10-26 08:10:54 GMT <angelborroy> This is the oldes we have
2018-10-26 08:11:03 GMT <angelborroy> But we made this after starting with 5.1
2018-10-26 08:13:53 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> we went in to production with 5.1 (enterprise) nearing the end of 2016
2018-10-26 08:14:08 GMT <angelborroy> so more or less the same
2018-10-26 08:14:25 GMT <angelborroy> We have also only from 5.1 (Community) in production
2018-10-26 08:14:26 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> so more like 2 years ago, but we did start building the solution earlier that year
2018-10-26 08:16:09 GMT <angelborroy> No problem, I can admit you were the first...
2018-10-26 08:16:24 GMT <angelborroy> … but we were the first in presenting Dockerisation to the Community
2018-10-26 08:16:25 GMT <angelborroy> http://beecon.buzz/2016/talks/?id=20160125042
2018-10-26 08:16:26 GMT <alfbot> Title:BeeCon 2016 >> Talks (at beecon.buzz)
2018-10-26 08:16:26 GMT <angelborroy> :D
2018-10-26 08:18:40 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> I've seen that presentation, and congrats
2018-10-26 08:18:59 GMT <angelborroy> You know I’m just joking, right?
2018-10-26 08:19:18 GMT <angelborroy> Bored between building times, you know ;-)
2018-10-26 08:20:03 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> sure, I'm not trying to claim we were the first
2018-10-26 08:20:41 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> Well, to be honest, I first met Xenit in that BeeCon, and they said they were already using docker in prod for a couple of clients for while already back then
2018-10-26 08:21:12 GMT <angelborroy> In fact Alfresco Team was using it internally before
2018-10-26 08:21:20 GMT <angelborroy> Philipe Dubois probably was the first of us
2018-10-26 08:21:41 GMT <angelborroy> But as @Thijs says, it does not matter too much
2018-10-26 08:21:49 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> When I joined, they were already using it as their de facto deployment method for most of their clients
2018-10-26 08:22:39 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> @yreg I don't think we lied to you about that 😃
2018-10-26 08:23:07 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> The production date I'm talking about is specifically one big client
2018-10-26 08:24:01 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> However, we are slowly open sourcing parts of that build/setup process
2018-10-26 08:25:04 GMT <angelborroy> This was our starting point with Alfresco Dokerisation

2018-10-26 08:25:11 GMT <angelborroy> 2014
2018-10-26 08:25:43 GMT <angelborroy> I mean, we looked as this project to start our project
2018-10-26 08:25:55 GMT <angelborroy> So probably this guy (gui81) was one of the pioneers
2018-10-26 08:33:25 GMT *** jelly-home is now known as jelly
2018-10-26 08:34:50 GMT <AFaust> So #alfresco has devolved into a YouTube comments section with people stating "First!!1".... ;-)
2018-10-26 08:37:07 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> It doesn't even have to work, as long as I'm first.
2018-10-26 08:38:37 GMT <AFaust> Spoken like a true disruptor / startup person / web dev hipster with a new "cool" framework...
2018-10-26 08:39:32 GMT <angelborroy> +1
2018-10-26 08:40:12 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> You know me well, Axel
2018-10-26 08:41:14 GMT <angelborroy> When everyone of us will be using ADF & Angular (probably around 2024), Axel will start a conversation in this IRC to identify which was the LAST developer to use ADF :D
2018-10-26 08:41:33 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> xD
2018-10-26 08:42:04 GMT <AFaust> angelborroy: That would require that Xenit (Thijs and colleagues) stop using their React-based stuff... otherwise "everyone" will be hard to achieve...
2018-10-26 08:42:43 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> at Xenit I'm considered one of the conservative people
2018-10-26 09:21:13 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> I don't think they have any reason to drop React - at least in the coming future
2018-10-26 09:21:16 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> ;P
2018-10-26 10:51:20 GMT <fwu2018> hello
2018-10-26 10:53:01 GMT <fwu2018> ppl, im still struggling with the reset password rest api calls...
2018-10-26 10:53:29 GMT <fwu2018> did you realize that we can make a request of a password reset using rest. Which will send an email to the user.
2018-10-26 10:53:53 GMT <fwu2018> we should then be able to reset the password using hte rest api, but there is no user id info for that
2018-10-26 10:53:59 GMT *** angelborroy_ is now known as angelborroy
2018-10-26 10:54:33 GMT <fwu2018> so actually, how the reset password and the request reset password rest api calls work toghether?
2018-10-26 10:54:56 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> is there a token maybe ?
2018-10-26 10:55:06 GMT <fwu2018> hello yreg
2018-10-26 10:55:40 GMT <fwu2018> yes there is, actually 2: activiti id and a key
2018-10-26 10:56:08 GMT <fwu2018> nevetheless the reset password needs an userid on the url to call
2018-10-26 10:56:45 GMT <fwu2018> and the email that the request reset password sends doent include that userid. So in my external app I cant reset the password, because I dont know the user
2018-10-26 10:57:12 GMT <fwu2018> so, somehting is missing here
2018-10-26 10:57:45 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> can you provide a paste with the source of the email being sent ?
2018-10-26 10:58:15 GMT <fwu2018> sure
2018-10-26 10:59:10 GMT <fwu2018> Here is how it should work:
2018-10-26 11:01:48 GMT <fwu2018> 1 - call the request reset password: alfresco_endpoint/alfresco/api/-default-/public/alfresco/versions/1/people/userXPTO/request-password-reset?alf_ticket=TICKET_a8b763cf9f147e9bbb59d927e9b4c0e9876e1ea5
2018-10-26 11:02:03 GMT <fwu2018> 2 - The user receives and email:
2018-10-26 11:02:40 GMT <fwu2018> alfresco_endpoint/share/page/reset-password?key=73649433-d5a4-41a0-b9ff-c36e633e81c6&id=activiti$30628
2018-10-26 11:03:14 GMT <fwu2018> 3 - In my app I should call the reset method:
2018-10-26 11:06:58 GMT <fwu2018> alfresco_/alfresco/api/-default-/public/alfresco/versions/1/people/???userXPTO??/reset-password
2018-10-26 11:07:50 GMT <fwu2018> and here is the problem: in 3 how can I know the user id = userXPTO?
2018-10-26 11:08:05 GMT <fwu2018> it shouldnt be necessary to know this in 3
2018-10-26 11:09:28 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> indeed, you should probably raise a ticket in jira
2018-10-26 11:10:08 GMT <fwu2018> so one way to solve this would be to add the user id as a parameter to the email url endpoint
2018-10-26 11:23:45 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> Is there some sort of flag that enables a back to "advsearch" page from the faceted-search results page? When coming from the advsearch page, all the terms used are in the url and advsearch page can autofill from url parameters.
2018-10-26 11:24:26 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> Aikau has so much mysterious stuff built in already, so thought I should ask...
2018-10-26 11:27:35 GMT <AFaust> Loftux: No such flag that I am aware of - such a button could be easily customised in though. As always there is no reason for Alfresco not to have thought of that already, apart from being tunnel-visioned in their agile way...
2018-10-26 11:38:58 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> AFaust: just looked, there is one that shows up when you use the old "search" -results page. It is in the share-header.lib.js, which is Aikau...
2018-10-26 11:39:21 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mbui> Has anyone done similar extensions/solution this this: https://i.gyazo.com/89e5270fb73fadcf5cf3d4bb6dd11883.png I.e extending the Node Templates folder under Data Dictionary so you can "organize" your templates under folders. A customer has over 50 document templates and would like to have some kind of organisation of the templates.
2018-10-26 11:41:06 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> @mbui Have a look at this https://github.com/Redpill-Linpro/alfresco-document-templates 😃
2018-10-26 11:41:07 GMT <alfbot> Title:GitHub - Redpill-Linpro/alfresco-document-templates (at github.com)
2018-10-26 11:45:10 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> @fwu2018 I have peeked to the code, and there is no way for you to include the user id in the email template
2018-10-26 11:45:42 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> I assume the idea is to use that as a way to double check that the person doing the confirmation is actually the owner of the account
2018-10-26 11:46:10 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> meaning they should provide the username again in the second form where they actually input the new password
2018-10-26 11:48:28 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mbui> @Loftux lol .D
2018-10-26 12:10:29 GMT <fwu2018> yreg, but in that way the rest api calls become useless in the concept of an external application to alfresco
2018-10-26 12:11:54 GMT <fwu2018> I dont want to keep state of these calls
2018-10-26 12:12:54 GMT <fwu2018> but I understand you point also
2018-10-26 12:12:57 GMT <fwu2018> your
2018-10-26 12:13:15 GMT <fwu2018> and I can always add there a new text box indeed
2018-10-26 12:17:53 GMT <fwu2018> yreg, thank you for your help!
2018-10-26 12:18:11 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> urw

2018-10-26 14:56:29 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> in an old instance of alfresco 5.0.d, if I use the simple search to search for the following text 01326200805302004, it finds a word document containing this text, 01326-2008.053.02.00.4
2018-10-26 14:56:40 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> the value is the same, but excluding . and -
2018-10-26 14:56:57 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> now, in alfresco 6, with solr6, the same search does not include this document
2018-10-26 14:57:20 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> the only way to find the document is by searching for 01326-2008.053.02.00.4
2018-10-26 14:57:48 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> does anyone know what can be changed to make it work as the old version?
2018-10-26 14:58:15 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> remember that this value is only present in the doc content, not in any property
2018-10-26 14:59:39 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> ok, lunch time... brb
2018-10-26 15:46:31 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> The tokenization is probably not done in the same way by default in solr4 vs solr6
2018-10-26 16:01:11 GMT <AFaust> Ahh, great. My problem with the Community Kubernetes chart and ASS has already been fixed for Enterprise but the engineer did not think to port the change to the acs-community-deployment project.
