Daily Log for #alfresco

2019-02-22 13:37:21 GMT <AFaust> Argh... I have a migration where the business people insist on migrating empty dummy values as-is ("empty" = IDs or dates like 00000 or 00.00.0000). For textual properties this is quite simple, but now I am wondering what to do with my date values.

2019-02-22 13:38:36 GMT <AFaust> I am actually considering to create "shadow" properties for each date property just to hold a "this date is stupid" boolean flag...

2019-02-22 13:40:42 GMT <AFaust> Anyone else have any better ideas? Luckily, they do not need to search in Alfresco as they have an external search index which is populated by calling a custom tracking web script, where I can "fake" the 00.00.0000 date value

2019-02-22 13:40:46 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mbui> AFaust: That sounds like a yikes

2019-02-22 13:44:04 GMT <AFaust> Using an ISO 8601 string value of 0000-00-00T00:00:00.000Z is not an option unfortunately since Alfresco internally converts that to date when storing / loading properties, so it would fall apart then...

2019-02-22 14:07:44 GMT <AFaust> Ok - since this may also affect other systems developed parallel to the migration I got the customer to consider using a different "dummy" value of 01.01.0001... hopefully they'll go for it

2019-02-22 14:09:17 GMT <AFaust> But ugh... it was such a clean migration project before when we dropped / not migrated all those dummy values, but apparently someone forgot to have the business people sign up on that concept and now they are being obstructionists...

2019-02-22 16:17:30 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> Does RM patches record in the same table as Alfresco patches? There is an RM patch that seem to kick in even if it should have been run

2019-02-22 16:38:37 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> alfresco-rm-enteprise-repo starts before org_alfresco_module_rm and this seem to cause issue

2019-02-22 19:33:34 GMT <angelborroy> AFaust just for the records...

2019-02-22 19:33:50 GMT <angelborroy> … the transactionality problem was due to a MyISAM engine tables

2019-02-22 19:34:06 GMT <angelborroy> As there were tables created by the customer I didn’t check this feature

2019-02-22 19:34:20 GMT <angelborroy> Once the tables are converted to InnoDB all is working as expected

2019-02-22 19:34:31 GMT <angelborroy> Thanks anyway for your links and advices

2019-02-22 19:34:38 GMT <angelborroy> And have a nice weekend!

2019-02-22 19:44:31 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> hello

2019-02-22 19:45:10 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> does anyone have a recommendation of an scanner app for smartphones that is capable of sending images to alfresco? ftp, cmis, anything?

2019-02-22 19:45:38 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I am searching for something, but I guess anyone here might know about something

2019-02-22 19:51:53 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> found one, scanbot pro

2019-02-22 19:52:01 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> it is capable of sending to webdav

2019-02-22 20:35:17 GMT *** lars_ is now known as vbgn
