Daily Log for #alfresco

2018-12-04 09:50:16 GMT <alfresco-discord> <sumit> Is SSO possible between Alfresco and Office 365?

2018-12-04 09:51:12 GMT <alfresco-discord> <sumit> Office 365 users are in Azure Active Directory.

2018-12-04 09:51:57 GMT <alfresco-discord> <sumit> And I know AD integration but not SSO as mentioned above.

2018-12-04 09:52:41 GMT <alfresco-discord> <sumit> Can I get some help plz?

2018-12-04 09:53:24 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> @sumit what Alfresco version?

2018-12-04 09:54:12 GMT <alfresco-discord> <sumit> Sir, it's community 5.2 on Linux 16.04

2018-12-04 09:55:39 GMT <angelborroy> it should work with passthru or kerberos sso

2018-12-04 09:56:27 GMT <angelborroy> it worked for 5.1.g, but probably in 5.2.x exists some issue (I remember something about) and it does not work anymore

2018-12-04 10:02:42 GMT <alfresco-discord> <sumit> Ok. I can use latest community version 6.x also if this could work. And I am expecting no login screen but loggedin with the user whoever loggedin into office 365 like outlook, excel.

2018-12-04 10:04:03 GMT <angelborroy> If fails in 5.2, it will fail in 6.x

2018-12-04 10:20:30 GMT <alfresco-discord> <sumit> Ok. Thanks Angel Borroy

2018-12-04 10:23:20 GMT <alfresco-discord> <sumit> I want to give it a try with 5.2/6.x

2018-12-04 10:23:56 GMT <alfresco-discord> <sumit> Can I follow this docs? https://docs.alfresco.com/6.0/concepts/auth-kerberos-intro.html

2018-12-04 10:23:57 GMT <alfbot> Title:Configuring Kerberos | Alfresco Documentation (at docs.alfresco.com)

2018-12-04 10:24:17 GMT <angelborroy> sure

2018-12-04 10:24:25 GMT <angelborroy> but configuring Kerberos SSO is not an easy task

2018-12-04 10:26:06 GMT <alfresco-discord> <sumit> Ok. As I see you have shared a docker.zip file on https://community.alfresco.com/thread/233706-how-to-make-sso-work

2018-12-04 10:26:08 GMT <alfbot> Title:How to make SSO work? | Alfresco Community (at community.alfresco.com)

2018-12-04 10:26:26 GMT <angelborroy> right

2018-12-04 10:26:38 GMT <angelborroy> it’s a docker-based configuration for 5.2 (if I remember right)

2018-12-04 10:29:19 GMT <alfresco-discord> <sumit> Can I start somewhere from your shared file. or any other recommended docs. And What probs generally people face in this configuration? So that I could have this in my mind.

2018-12-04 10:29:40 GMT <angelborroy> have you configured Kerberos anytime?

2018-12-04 10:30:55 GMT <alfresco-discord> <sumit> Never. I only configured ldap/ad.

2018-12-04 10:31:18 GMT <angelborroy> so just follow the instruction paying attention to details

2018-12-04 10:31:24 GMT <angelborroy> I have no further recommendation for you

2018-12-04 10:40:00 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> morning everyone

2018-12-04 10:40:20 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> @angel.borroy how are you dealing with addons to work both for 5.2 and 6.0?

2018-12-04 10:40:34 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I am talking about the scheduled jobs

2018-12-04 10:41:00 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I guess there is no way to make them compatible, right? one needs different versions for each branch, pre/post 6.0

2018-12-04 10:46:35 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> @douglascrp it is indeed challenging to address that without multiple builds, but possible I guess

2018-12-04 10:47:04 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> @yreg yes, but I have not seen anything like so far

2018-12-04 10:47:16 GMT <angelborroy> Axel made if for ootbee-support-tools

2018-12-04 10:47:17 GMT <angelborroy> https://github.com/OrderOfTheBee/ootbee-support-tools

2018-12-04 10:47:48 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> @angel.borroy ah, yes, let me check it

2018-12-04 10:47:49 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> tks

2018-12-04 10:47:58 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> Well what axel made was for discovering them

2018-12-04 10:48:04 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> not creating them

2018-12-04 10:48:11 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> @yreg indeed

2018-12-04 10:48:18 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I have just seen that in the logs

2018-12-04 10:48:18 GMT <angelborroy> right

2018-12-04 10:48:35 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> so, I guess in order to declare them, it will be required to have different versions

2018-12-04 10:48:43 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> I think you could add a context file to load configuration from a particular package/class using annotation

2018-12-04 10:49:20 GMT <angelborroy> or using a Maven profile in compliation

2018-12-04 10:49:26 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> and then make use of the @Conditional annotation

2018-12-04 10:49:45 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> alternatively (which is more elegant)

2018-12-04 10:50:35 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> you could setup your diverging context files in a place they would not be auto-discovered/loaded (avoid the root of your module/the extension directory)

2018-12-04 10:51:26 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> right now, as I have to deliver this today, I think I will keep using the "different versions" approach πŸ˜„

2018-12-04 10:51:41 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> it is just a schedule job, pretty specific for this customer

2018-12-04 10:52:01 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> then you put in an import in your main module context pointing to global property like : ${version.major}

2018-12-04 10:52:03 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> @douglascrp My colleagues are working on making dynamic extensions work for 6.0

2018-12-04 10:52:05 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> https://github.com/xenit-eu/dynamic-extensions-for-alfresco/pull/196

2018-12-04 10:52:20 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> and I am using docker again to validate custom code against 6.0

2018-12-04 10:52:23 GMT <angelborroy> and dynamic-extensions...

2018-12-04 10:52:34 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> @Thijs cool

2018-12-04 10:53:30 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> but it is still difficult to make it work in an IDE

2018-12-04 12:28:07 GMT <alfresco-discord> <LouiSe_hu> hi

2018-12-04 13:21:25 GMT <hi-ko> does anybody know where sitePermissionGroups is stored?

2018-12-04 13:22:05 GMT <hi-ko> I have a strange site where sitePermissionGroups differs from siteNode.getDirectPermissions()

2018-12-04 15:49:13 GMT <d1rewolf> hi guys...what's the best way to get started with alfresco for document management and workflow? Are there any good quickstart guides?

2018-12-04 15:57:20 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> check jpotts' tutorial on the subject

2018-12-04 15:58:59 GMT <yreg> https://ecmarchitect.com/alfresco-developer-series

2018-12-04 15:59:01 GMT <alfbot> Title:About the Alfresco Developer Tutorial Series | ECM Architect (at ecmarchitect.com)

2018-12-04 16:22:23 GMT <d1rewolf> thanks guys

2018-12-04 17:06:16 GMT <d1rewolf> guys, I see that the the order of the bee have their own edition, but its last release dates back to 2015 and i'm having trouble with install. is this no longer supported?

2018-12-04 17:06:28 GMT <d1rewolf> the honeycomb edition

2018-12-04 17:07:18 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> d1rewolf, that is right, I it not mantained anymore

2018-12-04 17:07:31 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> check this thread http://lists.xtreamlab.net/pipermail/ootb-hive/2018-November/001034.html

2018-12-04 17:07:32 GMT <alfbot> Title:[OOTB-hive] Docker(/Kubernetes) - My ideas for potential work (re: Daren's mail) (at lists.xtreamlab.net)

2018-12-04 17:08:08 GMT <d1rewolf> douglascrp: ok, thanks...I will

2018-12-04 17:16:01 GMT <d1rewolf> douglascrp: so reading that...I infer a few things: 1. Using the official community edition is now preferred over the Honeycomb edition, and 2. that Alfresco the company is purposely holding back things to make using the community edition infeasible for production systems. am I correct in these two things?

2018-12-04 17:19:35 GMT <d1rewolf> anyone here running the community edition in a "production" environment?

2018-12-04 17:24:19 GMT <yreg> d1rewolf, they are making it challenging a bit, at least using the out of the box deployments

2018-12-04 17:25:21 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> d1rewolf, most of us in this channel use community edition

2018-12-04 17:25:41 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I use it for dozens of different companies

2018-12-04 17:28:29 GMT <d1rewolf> douglascrp: ok, so that means it's usable at that level. We just purchased a product called Docuphase, but after going through training I'm a bit underwhelmed. I wonder if Alfresco might be a suitable alternative

2018-12-04 17:28:50 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> yes, it is, for sure

2018-12-04 17:28:58 GMT <d1rewolf> douglascrp: is Alfresco passive aggressive towwards the community edition?

2018-12-04 17:29:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I use this for my setups https://github.com/loftuxab/alfresco-ubuntu-install

2018-12-04 17:29:15 GMT <alfbot> Title:GitHub - loftuxab/alfresco-ubuntu-install: Alfresco script based install for Ubuntu (at github.com)

2018-12-04 17:29:35 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> so, I am not really using docker for anything in production right now

2018-12-04 17:29:42 GMT <d1rewolf> the features we need are: storage and annotation of documents, eforms, and workflow.

2018-12-04 17:30:06 GMT <d1rewolf> I'm just not sure where we'll encounter feature roadblocks by trying the community edition

2018-12-04 17:30:08 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> annotations are not part of the alfresco offering, not even for the enterprise edition

2018-12-04 17:30:13 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> same for eforms

2018-12-04 17:30:19 GMT <d1rewolf> oh....ok

2018-12-04 17:30:29 GMT <d1rewolf> so it's really just a document repository?

2018-12-04 17:30:39 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> and about workflows, they are going to remove the embeded activiti, so you will have to build the integration with something else by yourself

2018-12-04 17:31:00 GMT <d1rewolf> oh...ok. wow. it's changed a lot since I first looked at it years ago I guess

2018-12-04 17:31:08 GMT <d1rewolf> so what's its major usecase now?

2018-12-04 17:31:32 GMT <d1rewolf> what do your customers use it for?

2018-12-04 17:31:38 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> they still have the activiti project, but there is no final release for community edition yet

2018-12-04 17:31:59 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> so, the "activiti like" alternatives you have right now are flowable or camunda

2018-12-04 17:32:24 GMT <d1rewolf> this is what we bought: https://www.docuphase.com

2018-12-04 17:32:25 GMT <alfbot> Title:Enterprise Automation Software | DocuPhase (at www.docuphase.com)

2018-12-04 17:32:50 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> That's a bit exaggerated I think

2018-12-04 17:33:03 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> why?

2018-12-04 17:33:07 GMT <d1rewolf> douglascrp: so if they're removing activiti, what's the primary usecase for alfresco these days?

2018-12-04 17:33:11 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> They are not going to remove it, they just removed support for it in EE

2018-12-04 17:33:25 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> remove the embeded version, inside the repository

2018-12-04 17:33:27 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> and aren't planning on upgrading it

2018-12-04 17:33:42 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> but the OOTB workflows are to stay AFAIK

2018-12-04 17:33:43 GMT <d1rewolf> regarding docuphase, they simply license form technology from frevvo for eforms

2018-12-04 17:34:06 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> plus there is also the activiti-cloud as an alternative

2018-12-04 17:34:15 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> not only activiti forks

2018-12-04 17:34:31 GMT <d1rewolf> I thought alfresco was all about archiving documents and putting them through various workflows. perhaps I was misguided

2018-12-04 17:34:42 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> "In order to make it easier to design, deploy, and maintain custom workflows, in a future release we will be providing a platform-wide workflow service using Alfresco Process Services (powered by Activiti). This will replace the use of embedded Activiti for custom workflows. Future custom workflows will be implemented external to the Content Repository and will leverage the REST APIs of Alfresco

2018-12-04 17:35:25 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> will activiti-cloud have a community version? I don't think so

2018-12-04 17:35:27 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> I am aware of that blog post

2018-12-04 17:35:35 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> so, that is what I got from it

2018-12-04 17:35:52 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> "Future custom workflows will be implemented external to the Content Repository and will leverage the REST APIs of Alfresco Content Services. To be easily upgradable, new custom workflows should make local REST API calls in order to avoid using the in-process APIs."

2018-12-04 17:36:03 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> they are talking about custom workflows there, but the embedded one is to stay

2018-12-04 17:36:12 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> it will just become internal

2018-12-04 17:36:27 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> (CE isn't offcially supported anyway)

2018-12-04 17:36:35 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> indeed

2018-12-04 17:36:45 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> that is why as mentioned the two alternatives we have "right now"

2018-12-04 17:36:48 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> and activiti-cloud is all open source

2018-12-04 17:37:10 GMT <d1rewolf> so what would one use alfresco for? Just digital archive of documents?

2018-12-04 17:37:22 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> I do not know of anything more opensource @ alfresco actually

2018-12-04 17:37:39 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> they even have public daily standups open for everyone to join

2018-12-04 17:37:57 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> they literally embrace opensource

2018-12-04 17:38:09 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> in everything they do actually

2018-12-04 17:38:22 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> have you even peeked at the weekly dev logs ?

2018-12-04 17:38:31 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> if not, you should do that sometime

2018-12-04 17:39:15 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> @bhagyas sounds like the IRC -> discord bridge is down

2018-12-04 17:39:21 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> yes, I usually read those

2018-12-04 17:39:25 GMT <angelborroy> Alfresco is spending (lot of) money in Activiti Cloud since Paul, Joram and others left

2018-12-04 17:39:35 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> I can see d1rewolf posting comments that are not coming through

2018-12-04 17:39:49 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> same for angelborroy's comments

2018-12-04 17:40:44 GMT <yreg> d1rewolf, it depends what you mean by alfresco

2018-12-04 17:40:52 GMT <yreg> There is Alfresco the company

2018-12-04 17:41:08 GMT <yreg> And half a dozen products named Alfresco-*

2018-12-04 17:41:33 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> @yreg I am not saying they are not opensource or anything like that, I only said there is not a final release for activiti, yet

2018-12-04 17:42:05 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> Well that's an other thing

2018-12-04 17:42:17 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> πŸ˜„

2018-12-04 17:42:20 GMT <d1rewolf> yreg: that's fair. We need a system to store digital archives of documents, put them through various workflows, annotate them

2018-12-04 17:42:21 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> I thought you said you don't think it will be opensource

2018-12-04 17:42:33 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> but there have been at least two beta releases lately

2018-12-04 17:42:37 GMT <d1rewolf> but I understand from douglascrp that annotation is not part of its features

2018-12-04 17:42:45 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> no, look: they still have the activiti project, but there is no final release for community edition yet so, the "activiti like" alternatives you have right now are flowable or camunda

2018-12-04 17:42:48 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> and rumer says we should expect GA by mid-january

2018-12-04 17:43:04 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> yes, I am aware of that

2018-12-04 17:43:46 GMT <d1rewolf> ygreg: I don't know what I should call such a system...but document management system sounds about right. I was under the assumption that this is what alfresco was used for, but I might have been very wrong

2018-12-04 17:43:47 GMT <yreg> Annotation ?

2018-12-04 17:44:03 GMT <yreg> It's called Alfresco Content Services

2018-12-04 17:44:55 GMT <yreg> And it does all the traditional ECM features that is indexing and classifying documents, behaviors, rules, search ...

2018-12-04 17:44:59 GMT <d1rewolf> ygreg: by annotation, I mean applying water marks, rubber stamps, notes, etc to documents. overlays essentially.

2018-12-04 17:46:58 GMT <yreg> That's not out of the box

2018-12-04 17:47:11 GMT <d1rewolf> ygreg: is there a plugin/addon which supports it?

2018-12-04 17:47:30 GMT <yreg> But you could implement such features either using behaviours/rules or something else

2018-12-04 17:47:55 GMT <yreg> And that will probably involve the use of some library like iText or Apache POI

2018-12-04 17:48:36 GMT <yreg> Not to the extent of my knowledge

2018-12-04 17:48:45 GMT <d1rewolf> yreg: our current solution allows users to do these annotations directly from the browser with their viewer

2018-12-04 17:49:14 GMT <yreg> Such requirements always come as part of client specific requirements so I highly doubt there would be add-ons for that

2018-12-04 17:49:35 GMT <yreg> If that solution is alfresco based, it must be a customization

2018-12-04 17:49:43 GMT <d1rewolf> yreg: this looks like what I'm talking about: http://www.tsgrp.com/2018/10/12/alfresco-6-annotations-adf/

2018-12-04 17:49:46 GMT <alfbot> Title:Alfresco 6 Annotations – Adding OpenAnnotate to the Application Development Framework (ADF) (at www.tsgrp.com)

2018-12-04 17:52:48 GMT <yreg> That sounds interesting

2018-12-04 17:53:08 GMT <yreg> Haven't seen it before

2018-12-04 17:54:47 GMT <d1rewolf> Interesting....tsgrp's eforms (OpenContent Forms) looks very good as well

2018-12-04 18:00:30 GMT <d1rewolf> interesting...trying to download the community edition from here (https://www.alfresco.com/products/community/download) but it never gives me the option...it just hangs there spinning

2018-12-04 18:00:32 GMT <alfbot> Title:Alfresco Community Edition Download | Alfresco (at www.alfresco.com)

2018-12-04 18:00:39 GMT <d1rewolf> tactic? ;)

2018-12-04 18:04:31 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> d1rewolf, but if I got it right, in order to use all the tools tsgrp offers, you will have to use their custom UI

2018-12-04 18:04:42 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> they are not intended to work with share

2018-12-04 18:05:17 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> if you want to work on the customization yourself, this could be a good starting point https://github.com/apache/incubator-annotator

2018-12-04 18:05:18 GMT <alfbot> Title:GitHub - apache/incubator-annotator: Mirror of Apache Annotator (Incubating) (at github.com)

2018-12-04 18:05:32 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> if you are able to integrate it with pdf-js

2018-12-04 18:06:07 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> and you could also buy something like the snowbound viewer

2018-12-04 18:06:17 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> they even have the integration with share ready to use

2018-12-04 18:06:45 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> https://www.snowbound.com/products/html5-document-viewer/alfresco-viewer

2018-12-04 18:06:53 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I tested it some time ago

2018-12-04 18:07:09 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> you can ask for the trial, and it is really easy to integrate

2018-12-04 18:07:57 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> oh, nice, they already offer the ADF integration... cool

2018-12-04 18:11:05 GMT <d1rewolf> douglascrp: cool, thanks! I'm just trying to download alfresco to experiment....it just spins tho...can't even download

2018-12-04 18:11:15 GMT <d1rewolf> but I'll look at the install github repo you posted earlier

2018-12-04 18:16:16 GMT <d1rewolf> douglascrp: since you have a number of clients running the community edition...can you tell me anything you've found lacking about it? would I be foolish to think I could use it to service a large company?

2018-12-04 18:19:06 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> d1rewolf, no, you can use it without any problem

2018-12-04 18:19:22 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> it is just a matter of tuning the server

2018-12-04 18:20:04 GMT <d1rewolf> douglascrp: cool. have you seen anyone use an ocr solution with it? for example, to ocr barcodes and index documents based on those barcodes in some way?

2018-12-04 18:20:08 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> my customers are not big ones, but I know people have been using alfresco for these cases too

2018-12-04 18:20:27 GMT <d1rewolf> douglascrp: and have you found any eforms packages which work with community?

2018-12-04 18:20:41 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I don't use eforms, so I know nothing about it

2018-12-04 18:20:59 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> maybe this https://github.com/cmpaul/alfraca

2018-12-04 18:21:00 GMT <alfbot> Title:GitHub - cmpaul/alfraca: A demo project that integrates the Alpaca forms engine with Alfresco. (at github.com)

2018-12-04 18:21:31 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> when we need to work with indexing and barcode, we use chronoscan, but this is not inside alfresco

2018-12-04 18:21:43 GMT <d1rewolf> douglascrp: what i mean by eforms is a way to create forms, have users fill out the forms, and do various things (workflow, index) based on the values in those forms

2018-12-04 18:22:08 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> for the barcode, you can implement it by yourself

2018-12-04 18:22:34 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> you could start with something like https://github.com/keensoft/alfresco-simple-ocr

2018-12-04 18:22:35 GMT <alfbot> Title:GitHub - keensoft/alfresco-simple-ocr: Simple OCR action for Alfresco (at github.com)

2018-12-04 18:22:45 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> and then integrate more services

2018-12-04 18:23:11 GMT <d1rewolf> hmmm...interesting. very cool stuff. do you do consulting as well?

2018-12-04 18:23:24 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> yes

2018-12-04 18:24:04 GMT <d1rewolf> I might be interested in walking a consultant through our requirements and getting their take on the best path forward....but let me install and experiment first. can you pm me your contact info, assuming you're interested?

2018-12-04 18:25:10 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> you can call me here anytime

2018-12-04 18:25:16 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I am online most of the time

2018-12-04 18:26:42 GMT <d1rewolf> douglascrp: k, thx

2018-12-04 20:29:09 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> @yreg are you using this project? https://github.com/yregaieg/acs6-sdk3-poc

2018-12-04 20:48:05 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> hi douglas

2018-12-04 20:48:18 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> I will be using it in january

2018-12-04 20:48:30 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> but I do not use it for any of my clients

2018-12-04 20:48:44 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> have recommended it to few people on the community here and there

2018-12-04 20:48:45 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I am developing agains 6.0 now, and I am searching for a way to use it

2018-12-04 20:48:50 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> and haven't heard any complains

2018-12-04 20:48:58 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I found your recommendation at https://community.alfresco.com/community/ecm/blog/2018/07/12/quick-tips-for-migrating-sdk3-projects-to-acs-6

2018-12-04 20:49:00 GMT <alfbot> Title:Quick tips for migrating SDK3 projects to ACS 6 | Alfresco Community (at community.alfresco.com)

2018-12-04 20:49:12 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> you can either base yourself on that project of mine

2018-12-04 20:49:29 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> or you could experiment with brutor-sdk from gravitonian

2018-12-04 20:49:30 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I am trying with the simple changes mentioned by angel first

2018-12-04 20:49:37 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> yes, I saw that one too

2018-12-04 20:57:18 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> @yreg I will let you know how it goes

2018-12-04 21:02:58 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> have you seen this? https://github.com/Alfresco/alfresco-sdk/tree/sdk-4.0

2018-12-04 21:02:59 GMT <alfbot> Title:GitHub - Alfresco/alfresco-sdk at sdk-4.0 (at github.com)

2018-12-04 21:03:30 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> they started working on it, and they also removed the solr dependency, making it connect to an external service, just like you did

2018-12-04 21:15:30 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> that was the hackathon project Ole and I worked on

2018-12-04 21:15:45 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> ahhh πŸ˜›

2018-12-04 21:16:02 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I haven't noticed your name, only ole

2018-12-04 21:19:11 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> to be honest, I haven't much to contribute ... except for that repo you listed and a couple of hours of fiddling after I finished my actual work

2018-12-04 21:19:27 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> don't worry

2018-12-04 21:19:36 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> unfortunately for me, this year's edition came on the same day as the sprint release

2018-12-04 21:19:52 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I know the feeling

2018-12-04 21:19:56 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> and I got pulled back to the project to adress bouncing QCs

2018-12-04 21:19:58 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I was really busy that day too
