Daily Log for #alfresco

2019-05-09 10:09:44 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mg_itn> Hi, I am currently developing a project with ADF and ACS 6.1 and APS 1.9. Now I noticed CORS is enabled by default, putting in the Referrer in the Allow Origin Header ( for example the Origin Request for tickets will automatically respond with Allow Origin: https://my.adf-app.net). Normally we have a Reverse Proxy for handling the headers.

2019-05-09 10:11:21 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mg_itn> Does anyone know about this with 6.1? We are still looking into this issue, because we thought CORS would be enabled by default. But somehow it works automatically, which of course can be a huge security issue

2019-05-09 11:52:26 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mbui> I know that Alfresco 5.2 is supported on Ubuntu 16.04, however customer is asking to upgrade to Ubuntu 18.04 (which is supported on ACS 6.X). Question is if anyone is running 5.2 in Ubuntu 18.04 without any issues?

2019-05-09 11:55:10 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> that kind of restriction is usually bullsh*t

2019-05-09 11:55:53 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> There should be nothing stopping alfresco 5.2 from running on ubuntu 18.04

2019-05-09 11:56:17 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> given that you do install the correct versions of all 3rd party dependencies and you configure them correctly

2019-05-09 11:57:02 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mbui> Exactly my thought ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

2019-05-09 12:00:43 GMT <xkahn> AFaust: true, it doesn't have setTimeout, but there are Rhino-compatible polyfills for that.

2019-05-09 12:00:55 GMT <AFaust> ugh...

2019-05-09 12:01:27 GMT <AFaust> I already hate polyfills for browsers, and now you are telling me people use them on server-side JS as well?

2019-05-09 12:01:32 GMT <xkahn> haha

2019-05-09 12:01:53 GMT <xkahn> Alfresco gets mad at that code

2019-05-09 12:02:11 GMT <xkahn> Looks like "ids[id] = new JavaAdapter(java.util.TimerTask,{run: fn});" has some weird interaction

2019-05-09 12:02:41 GMT <xkahn> Anyway, 60s+ functions work in the JS console

2019-05-09 12:03:15 GMT <AFaust> And why would anyone think that is safe to use in Alfresco? Anything run via setTimeout would be out-of-scope of the current transaction / security context...

2019-05-09 12:06:14 GMT <xkahn> Good point. As for me, I was just trying to cause a long running script with no side-effects.

2019-05-09 23:05:25 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Roy> awesome .. thanks

2019-05-09 23:05:32 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Francesco Corti> ๐Ÿ˜‰

2019-05-09 23:16:28 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Brian_SeedIM> Hi Roy, I guess you are still in Sydney

2019-05-09 23:17:41 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Roy> Hi Brain .. nice to see you .. yes I am ๐Ÿ˜„

2019-05-09 23:18:22 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Brian_SeedIM> We are going to spend the day getting an aws k8s deployment happening and play with various different architectures for deployment. We are not building anything new for this hackathon but need to figure out the containerisation.

2019-05-09 23:18:35 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Brian_SeedIM> Hi Kavi

2019-05-09 23:19:23 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Kavi_SeedIM> Hi Brian

2019-05-09 23:19:56 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Roy> Sounds good Brian!

2019-05-09 23:19:59 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Roy> Hi Kavi

2019-05-09 23:20:47 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Roy> I'm using the day as an excuse to brush up on my R .. so building out a package that will allow you to push and pull content from Alfresco via R ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

2019-05-09 23:38:50 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Brian_SeedIM> You have us stumped their Roy, I have not even heard of R before now. What is it?

2019-05-09 23:40:11 GMT <alfresco-discord> <AFaust> A programming language for the (primary) use case of data analysis / visualisation, as far as I am familiar with it.

2019-05-09 23:41:28 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Roy> Yes that about covers it .. it's functional too .. often used for "big data" analysis .. I want to be able to load data from documents for analysis .. then upload the generated reports back into Alfresco ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

2019-05-09 23:42:30 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Brian_SeedIM> Thanks Axel. Sounds like a handy use case. Will have to check it out.

2019-05-09 23:43:44 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Roy> The project is here .. https://github.com/rwetherall/alfr.. if you want to take a look when you have a spare 5 minutes .. not much there yet but hopefully something usable by the end of the day ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
