Daily Log for #alfresco

2018-11-29 08:09:34 GMT <AFaust> Hmm... learned of some stupidity in Alfresco retry handling I did not realise before: Even if retry is disallowed (maxRetries = 1), the handling will still enforce the minimum wait time between tries. And if you set the logger to debug, the code explicitly no longer logs the INFO-level information about number of retries and applied wait time...

2018-11-29 08:56:29 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> Morning everyone !

2018-11-29 08:56:52 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> Do we have an office hours planned for this afternoon ?

2018-11-29 08:57:36 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> I have the feeling that every one from alfresco is at AWS reInvent ....

2018-11-29 08:57:56 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> 😄

2018-11-29 09:23:24 GMT <hi-ko> I wondering why today's Alfresco Community updates refers updates "6 months ago" as "Trending Now"

2018-11-29 09:24:44 GMT <hi-ko> maybe because the mechanisme selects the latest 8 news in the last 6 month?

2018-11-29 09:41:47 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> In the lifetime of the Universe, that's now

2018-11-29 09:41:48 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> 😉

2018-11-29 09:44:08 GMT <angelborroy> @MorganP agree, but in the lifetime of software, that’s prehistoric :D

2018-11-29 10:37:32 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> Folks, it seems we had a silent ACS-CE 6.1.1 GA release two days ago 😄

2018-11-29 10:39:57 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> well actually it is 26th of october it seems

2018-11-29 10:41:25 GMT <angelborroy> great, so we can make a raw diff just to know the new features!

2018-11-29 10:41:31 GMT <angelborroy> Alfresco is easier time to time

2018-11-29 10:41:58 GMT <angelborroy> Or even better, we can study every commit to understand what’s new

2018-11-29 10:42:41 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> I really miss resplin

2018-11-29 10:42:49 GMT <angelborroy> +1

2018-11-29 10:52:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> Still advertising clustering in the age of kubernetes

2018-11-29 10:52:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> :p

2018-11-29 11:15:10 GMT <AxelFaust> yreg: If you check the artifacts.alfresco.com for 6.1.1 does it say GA anywhere? It does not for me. And the latest naming policy was to put a -ga on a GA release for Community...

2018-11-29 11:15:50 GMT <AxelFaust> Now don't ask me why they forgot to put an ea suffix there if they added the ea to all previous releases....

2018-11-29 11:16:15 GMT <AxelFaust> It wouldn't be Alfresco if they ever were consistent...

2018-11-29 11:17:00 GMT <AxelFaust> I see the 6.1.1 artifact as an accidental by-product of their Enterprise 6.1 RC release...

2018-11-29 11:21:44 GMT <angelborroy> Also Docker Image for 6.1.1 is available at https://hub.docker.com/r/alfresco/alfresco-content-repository-community/tags/

2018-11-29 11:24:18 GMT <angelborroy> One quick question

2018-11-29 11:24:44 GMT <angelborroy> Having a query by using SearchService and SearchService.LANGUAGE_CMIS_ALFRESCO language returning 1 result from Java

2018-11-29 11:24:58 GMT <angelborroy> But returning 14 hits from CMIS Workbench

2018-11-29 11:25:18 GMT <angelborroy> Is there any difference?

2018-11-29 11:26:13 GMT <angelborroy> Or am I missing something?

2018-11-29 11:33:29 GMT <AxelFaust> Well, by using CMIS workbench you are going through the CMIS integration layer, which may create a slightly different search parameters object than if you call query with the CMIS query language

2018-11-29 11:33:43 GMT <angelborroy> This is what I guess

2018-11-29 11:33:50 GMT <angelborroy> Trying to find what’s the difference

2018-11-29 11:33:56 GMT <angelborroy> Obviously 14 is the right one :(

2018-11-29 11:38:36 GMT <angelborroy> I’m (obviously) stupid

2018-11-29 11:38:54 GMT <angelborroy> If you use the same user, obviously, you obtain the same results

2018-11-29 11:39:09 GMT <angelborroy> if you use different users, you can obtain different results

2018-11-29 11:39:13 GMT <angelborroy> OMG

2018-11-29 11:44:56 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> I have a colleague which is telling me that content rules can be added to Folders of course but also DataList. He read that somewhere apparently. Is that true? I mean I don't really use DataList usually but I've never seen content rules on them

2018-11-29 11:45:32 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> Am I stupid? (answer is probably yes :D)

2018-11-29 11:49:18 GMT <AxelFaust> Data Lists are folders, so yes, folder rules can be applied to them as well

2018-11-29 11:49:28 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> Yes but that's folder

2018-11-29 11:49:40 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> it's not specifically a type of node

2018-11-29 11:50:02 GMT <AxelFaust> It is just not exposed in the UI - you have to work around it a bit by using the Repository view to navigate to the data list to then be able to use the Manage Rules action

2018-11-29 11:50:15 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> Yes

2018-11-29 11:51:31 GMT <AxelFaust> Or you just call the Manage Rules page URL with a nodeRef for the data list that you obtained from Node Browser

2018-11-29 11:53:25 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> Probably a semantic problem but for me saying that the rule is added to the DataList isn't correct

2018-11-29 11:53:29 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> it's assign to a folder

2018-11-29 11:53:41 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> which turns out to be the one used by the DataList for the elements

2018-11-29 11:54:28 GMT <AxelFaust> The folder IS the data list, and the contents are the elements.

2018-11-29 11:54:41 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> yes absolutely

2018-11-29 11:54:49 GMT <AxelFaust> There is no separation between "a folder used by the DataList" and the data list

2018-11-29 11:54:55 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> but the datalist isn't a type

2018-11-29 11:54:59 GMT <AxelFaust> It is

2018-11-29 11:54:59 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> of node

2018-11-29 11:55:16 GMT <AxelFaust> Type: dl:dataList

2018-11-29 11:55:48 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> it's not just for the elements?

2018-11-29 11:56:13 GMT <AxelFaust> https://github.com/Alfresco/share/blob/develop/share-services/src/main/resources/alfresco/model/datalistModel.xml#L61

2018-11-29 11:56:14 GMT <alfbot> Title:share/datalistModel.xml at develop · Alfresco/share · GitHub (at github.com)

2018-11-29 11:56:33 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> Thx!

2018-11-29 12:00:34 GMT <angelborroy> AxelFaust this is why I didn’t found the model… It’s inside “share-services”!

2018-11-29 12:00:48 GMT <angelborroy> I was searching the same to paste it to Morgan

2018-11-29 12:01:50 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> it make sense to put it in the share-serivices so the can drop everything once Share isn't supported anymore 😄

2018-11-29 12:44:47 GMT <AxelFaust> Damn... I just realised one of my customers (which I joined to offer some admin support from time to time long after an Enterprise partner had set up the system) have their SOLR system behind a publicly (inside the intranet) accessible load balancer without SSL...

2018-11-29 12:46:53 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> I had several of those

2018-11-29 12:47:39 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> they knew the risks and said they could live with it 😃

2018-11-29 12:57:37 GMT <AxelFaust> Yeah - I already had the talk with them when I started about them not using SSL at all for accessing Alfresco...

2018-11-29 13:00:35 GMT <angelborroy> ~HtmlLogger flushlog

2018-11-29 13:00:35 GMT <alfbot> angelborroy: Woooosh, your log has been flushed...

2018-11-29 13:24:32 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kgastaldo> Hi All - We have office hours planned today for 10:30 Eastern, 15:30 UTC - so, in 2 hours

2018-11-29 13:24:48 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kgastaldo> Someone correct me if that time doesn't seem right! Time zones are apparently my nemesis

2018-11-29 13:30:53 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> I will probably skip this edition (staff meeting), it would be nice if someone takes up the task of updating the appropriate page on community.alfresco.com so those who can't attend can catch up 😃

2018-11-29 13:33:11 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> @kgastaldo One more suggestion : It would be nice to announce/confirm every session early the same week, plus possibly providing a sli.do link for that particular session 😃

2018-11-29 13:34:09 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kgastaldo> Agreed. We're hoping that next year, we'll have more time to advertise guests and take questions. We have ReInvent this week, so we're a bit slim on staffing!

2018-11-29 13:34:32 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kgastaldo> We may move it to monthly, for that reason.

2018-11-29 13:35:03 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kgastaldo> And also schedule earlier in the day. Assuming that if we do it less often, with more specific topics, during the workday, people will perhaps move meetings to attend the ones that interest them.

2018-11-29 13:35:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <DavidWebster> @kgastaldo - they used to be 16:30 UK time rather than 15:30. That change is a good thing for me, I may be able to join more of them!

2018-11-29 13:47:32 GMT <AxelFaust> kgastaldo: Simply ignore time zones, use UTC and you should never feel like they are your nemesis. There's a reason your military sticks to Zulu / UTC - they too can't be arsed to deal with timezones and just need something that is reliable for everyone...

2018-11-29 15:34:55 GMT <hi-ko> and UK may subject to be renamed in future ;-)

2018-11-29 15:43:13 GMT <AxelFaust> Well, it is still technically a "United" kingdom if only England remains...

2018-11-29 16:27:05 GMT *** phaleth_ is now known as phaleth

2018-11-29 16:36:49 GMT * AxelFaust looks into his calendar to schedule a Spotify profile "styling" session to convince kgastaldo he is not just some J-POP listening weirdo...
