Daily Log for #alfresco

2019-08-05 08:13:55 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> Is there anyone here from Xenit?

2019-08-05 08:16:27 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> yes

2019-08-05 08:17:11 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> @bhagyas I am,

2019-08-05 08:19:12 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> Hi @Thijs awesome that you're open sourcing the Alfred suite!

2019-08-05 08:19:38 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> However, I can't find any open source code of Alfred in the xenit GitHub?

2019-08-05 08:20:08 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> Is this planned or has it been done on some other VCS? I remember you guys using BitBucket sometime ago

2019-08-05 08:21:06 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> Actually, there is a lot on github already: https://github.com/xenit-eu

2019-08-05 08:21:07 GMT <alfbot> Title:xenit-eu ยท GitHub (at github.com)

2019-08-05 08:21:15 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> but not yet everything

2019-08-05 08:21:37 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> yeah, I could only see alfred-telemetry project on GitHub

2019-08-05 08:21:47 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> there is more to come

2019-08-05 08:21:58 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> like Alfred API, Alfred Finder, ...

2019-08-05 08:22:07 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> but they are depending on our docker images

2019-08-05 08:22:12 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> I see

2019-08-05 08:22:24 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> and they are open and published since last week

2019-08-05 08:22:33 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> you mean the docker images?

2019-08-05 08:22:45 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> docker-alfresco

2019-08-05 08:22:56 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> with open images on docker hub

2019-08-05 08:23:06 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> our integration tests use them

2019-08-05 08:23:18 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> it is a lot of work

2019-08-05 08:23:33 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> but we don't want to just throw the code online, it has to build too

2019-08-05 08:23:45 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> Agreed ๐Ÿ˜„

2019-08-05 08:23:49 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> the blogpost was a bit early in my opinion

2019-08-05 08:24:12 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> yeah

2019-08-05 08:24:28 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> is there a docker image for alfred-finder I can run?

2019-08-05 08:24:36 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> not yet

2019-08-05 08:25:18 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> so you want to test alfred finder

2019-08-05 08:25:28 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> I'll give a push here

2019-08-05 08:25:49 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> yeah, also excited to see what changes you have made to augment Alfresco API to work better

2019-08-05 08:26:15 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> I know xenit has their own versions of Alfresco API calls that 'supposedly' work better

2019-08-05 08:27:04 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> ^_^

2019-08-05 08:44:17 GMT <alfresco-discord> <IanW> I think I'm going to give up on Activiti and look for alternatives...

2019-08-05 08:45:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <IanW> I've been looking at the latest cloud version and it all appears rather half-baked and seems to be lacking in direction

2019-08-05 08:46:20 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> @IanW I'm surprised that you even had a look ๐Ÿ˜›

2019-08-05 09:27:17 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> @bhagyas We don't have our own versions of Alfresco API calls

2019-08-05 09:27:35 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> we have our own API on top of Alfresco

2019-08-05 09:28:23 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> @bhagyas It is the same API for Alfresco 4.2 -> 6.1

2019-08-05 09:28:36 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> important for the products we built on top

2019-08-05 09:32:45 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> @bhagyas We do have a way to reduce http overhead with a bulk call

2019-08-05 09:34:19 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> @bhagyas Where do you get your info?

2019-08-05 09:35:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kanat> Hello, guys

2019-08-05 09:35:50 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kanat> May I use SetProcessDefinitionVersionCmd in javascript console?

2019-08-05 09:44:44 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kanat> maybe someone has an example of use?

2019-08-05 09:45:06 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Arun> I am new to alfresco,how to customize the user profile with my own personal fields.

2019-08-05 10:40:02 GMT <AFaust> kanat: SetProcessDefinitionVersionCmd will be very hard to use in JavaScript Console, because you cannot simply execute it - you'd have to have an Activiti command processor, which would be quite complex to retrieve / access / construct from the JavaScript Console context.

2019-08-05 10:41:05 GMT <AFaust> Not impossible, but very involved. The chances of anyone having done something similar and be able to provide an example are quite low, I reckon.

2019-08-05 10:46:18 GMT <AFaust> Argh... creating a "get last modified / created file in directory" lookup is a nightmare thanks to all the time resolution inaccuracies of various file systems.

2019-08-05 12:06:48 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kanat> How to use SetProcessDefinitionVersionCmd?

2019-08-05 13:04:49 GMT <AFaust> kanat: However you need to use it... Generally, "How to use XY" is quite a counter-productive query, unless you also provide some information of what you are trying to do (high level) in the first place. Maybe people can / will tell you that what you think you need to use is not what you actually would want to use. And people also need context to be able to explain "how to use"...

2019-08-05 13:15:53 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> @Thijs It was about the bulk calls optimisations

2019-08-05 13:15:54 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

2019-08-05 13:21:22 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> @bhagyas We use that bulk call mainly for fetching metadata for a list of nodes. It won't win a beauty contest, but it does the job in terms of limiting the http overhead.

2019-08-05 14:46:50 GMT <alfresco-discord> <mbui> I have a customer running on 5.0.4 and SDK 2. What would be the best upgrade path? Upgrading directly to SDK 4 and 6.1?

2019-08-05 16:03:28 GMT <AFaust> mbui: Upgrade path does not have anything to do with SDK. SDK is just a tool, and you can upgrade to 6.x and still be on SDK 2...

2019-08-05 16:04:35 GMT <AFaust> I would assume the regular advises re. upgrade paths apply: 1) go to latest service pack of the same release, 2) go to latest version of that major relase (5.2.x), 3) go to the target release

2019-08-05 19:22:31 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> @IanW regarding your findings with Activiti I have the same opinion (unfortunately). I do not consider my self as a complete newbie (even if I could be) but running all this became a nightmare. I am afraid alfresco itself is going that same direction

2019-08-05 19:24:35 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> @Thijs is the complete Alfred suite built with react?
