Daily Log for #alfresco

2019-08-28 03:45:55 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Mahus> Hello, is there integration with 1C:Enterprise in Alfresco?

2019-08-28 03:46:45 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Mahus> Cannot find any information about it

2019-08-28 06:19:32 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kumar> Hi All

2019-08-28 06:19:51 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kumar> Can we override the cm:name ?

2019-08-28 06:20:10 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kumar> which will effect in all our custom types?

2019-08-28 06:56:24 GMT <AFaust> kumar: Technically, you can override the cm:name property on any sub-type of cm:cmobject - just like any other property.

2019-08-28 06:56:42 GMT <AFaust> But be aware that there may be various hard-codings relating to cm:name in specific clients / APIs

2019-08-28 06:58:24 GMT <AFaust> E.g. I recently had to restrict the allowed name regex for cm:name on a few sub-types for a customer, and Share forms / validation did not respect my overridden constraint. So I had to play the shell game, e.g. use a virtual field / property in the UI as a form field to which the constraint was attached, and then swap the value of that field with cm:name on render / save

2019-08-28 07:52:08 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> @lars is there a guide on using the branched version of the plugin?

2019-08-28 07:52:35 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> kinda unfamiliar with gradle way of doing things since sticking for so long with maven

2019-08-28 07:52:58 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> 😄

2019-08-28 07:54:13 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> going to checkout the project in any case - will try to figure out how to use it

2019-08-28 07:54:16 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> ^_^

2019-08-28 08:32:33 GMT <alfresco-discord> <drazen04> @dgradecak I had to create a custom start workflow for custom worflow, so i needed to discriminate between regular /start-workflow call and mine

2019-08-28 08:37:19 GMT <alfresco-discord> <drazen04> Anyone knows if there is a simple fast way to make bold on some label based on name (i need for some actions in document-details)?

2019-08-28 09:28:29 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> @bhagyas @lars is on holiday until half september now

2019-08-28 09:29:02 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> I might be able to help you out

2019-08-28 09:29:27 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> we'd love to have some more external users/input for our gradle sdk

2019-08-28 09:29:51 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> what do you mean with branched version?

2019-08-28 09:46:39 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Mark> What could be the cause of an image rendition being stored on the node and used rather than a PDF rendition? When I add a .docx document in Share, an image rendition is saved to the node instead of a PDF, and so the user is presented with a 'flat' image preview instead of interactive PDF. I checked transformations using OOTB Support Tools and transformations from docx -> PDF seem fine. What's more, it

2019-08-28 09:46:39 GMT <alfresco-discord> seems the PDF is required to make the image. Why isn't the PDF used? With Libreoffice seeming to work fine, I'm somewhat out of leads.

2019-08-28 09:55:18 GMT <angelborroy> To render PDF preview LibreOffice is used

2019-08-28 09:55:30 GMT <angelborroy> But to render first page thumbnail, pdfium is used

2019-08-28 09:55:39 GMT <angelborroy> So you can have the image but not the preview

2019-08-28 09:56:13 GMT <angelborroy> Check that your size limits for DOCX to PDF transformations are enough in that case

2019-08-28 09:56:35 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Mark> that's interesting Angel, I didn't know that. Even in 5.1 Community?

2019-08-28 09:56:57 GMT <angelborroy> In 5.1 it’s used ‘gs’ instead of pdfium

2019-08-28 09:57:00 GMT <angelborroy> But it’s the same thing

2019-08-28 09:58:34 GMT <MarkTielemans> What is used instead of pdfium? Sorry I think the Discord bot messed up the message

2019-08-28 09:58:51 GMT <angelborroy> GhostScript

2019-08-28 09:59:29 GMT <MarkTielemans> Ah Ghostscript. Thanks, will look into this!

2019-08-28 13:10:26 GMT <alfresco-discord> <drazen04> Hi guys, i need some advices. I had to persist bpm_comment for every task so i made a new field on my form that get bpm_comment value, but at the same time if i empty the comment box for the incoming content it deletes from workflow history

2019-08-28 13:10:35 GMT <alfresco-discord> <drazen04> there is a way to do it properly?

2019-08-28 13:13:32 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> as far as I remember it is done by default

2019-08-28 13:13:55 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> you just need to get the task and get the variable for the task

2019-08-28 13:14:45 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> note that only the last edited values is stored into the execution but all previous values should be available on the appropriate tasks

2019-08-28 13:18:34 GMT <alfresco-discord> <drazen04> I tried to do something set my custom var with bpm comment and then execution.setVariableLocal('bpm_comment', "")

2019-08-28 13:19:01 GMT <alfresco-discord> <drazen04> But in this way works for workflow execution but cancel for the history

2019-08-28 13:33:00 GMT <alfresco-discord> <drazen04> And the other problem is that start workflow is activiti:executionListener not a task
