Daily Log for #alfresco

2019-09-19 07:32:21 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> @Thijs Any idea why the alfrescoWar and shareWar tasks are not visible from the xenit docker gradle plugin?

2019-09-19 07:32:37 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> I can see them being defined in the code

2019-09-19 07:36:12 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> can you point me to the code that you think defines the task?

2019-09-19 07:41:04 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> MergeWarsTask mergeWarsTask = project.getTasks().create(warName.toLowerCase()+"War", MergeWarsTask.class);

2019-09-19 07:46:08 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> there is something going on with that replacement task

2019-09-19 07:46:29 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> you should be able to use mergeAlfrescoWar if you want to use the war with extensions

2019-09-19 07:46:57 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> @lars probably knows

2019-09-19 07:52:19 GMT <alfresco-discord> <lars> You shouldn't use mergeAlfrescoWar 🙂

2019-09-19 07:52:38 GMT <alfresco-discord> <lars> The alfrescoWar should be there, let me check

2019-09-19 07:54:56 GMT <alfresco-discord> <lars> Oh, alfrescoWar is not released yet

2019-09-19 07:56:39 GMT <alfresco-discord> <lars> So yes, you can use mergeAlfrescoWar for now, but it's deprecated with the new release (the name is a bit stupid, which is why we renamed it)

2019-09-19 08:55:00 GMT <alfresco-discord> <monica> Hello everyone.. I need a help. I want to show activities for 60 days instead of 28 days on my activities dashlet. I have added a line for 60 days in my-activities.get.config.xml file and also tried this by adding activities.feed.max.age.mins=89280 on alfresco-global.properties. but it didn't worked. Is there any way to show 60 days activities on "My Activities" dashlet ?. Thanks.

2019-09-19 09:38:43 GMT <AxelFaust> monica: If you have just changed these configurations, you may have to give it some time for data to accumulate (again) for the 60 days period. Due to the max.age.mins value having been shorter before, any activities past the old age limit have already been deleted before you changed the setting.

2019-09-19 09:39:21 GMT <AxelFaust> So even with the changed settings now, you cannot see more activities as they do no exist (anymore). Only once they re-accumulate with passage of time should you expect a full 60 coverage of activities.

2019-09-19 09:43:06 GMT <alfresco-discord> <pbk1973> Thanks @AFaust and @jpotts for the reply. That helps

2019-09-19 11:39:56 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kgastaldo> We made a little cheat sheet to discuss some of the changes/new layout - https://hub.alfresco.com/t5/about-the-forum/from-community-to-hub-where-is-everything/m-p/5

2019-09-19 11:40:39 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> Now logged in. How do i get access to our addon pages for editing? https://hub.alfresco.com/t5/alfresco-content-services-add/sharebox-secure-external-sharing/m-p/291319#M230

2019-09-19 11:40:40 GMT <alfbot> Title:ShareBox - Secure External Sharing - Alfresco Hub - 291319 (at hub.alfresco.com)

2019-09-19 11:44:02 GMT <angelborroy> It looks like searching is still not working fine

2019-09-19 11:44:16 GMT <angelborroy> Probably they are still uploading content

2019-09-19 11:45:16 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> angelborroy or index is lagging behind... eventual consistency

2019-09-19 11:47:58 GMT <angelborroy> @kgastaldo It looks like Addons page is missing

2019-09-19 11:48:04 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kgastaldo> @Loftux So, this platform doesn't have collaborative documents, like Jive. Our options are - let me know what you'd like changed and I'll change it. Or you can recreate the add on topic with your profile, so you have the editing rights. There wasn't a way to give you permissions to edit just this one.

2019-09-19 11:48:24 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kgastaldo> @angel.borroy - Addons are here - https://hub.alfresco.com/t5/alfresco-content-services-add/bd-p/add-ons

2019-09-19 11:48:25 GMT <alfbot> Title:Alfresco Content Services - Add-ons (at hub.alfresco.com)

2019-09-19 11:48:48 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kgastaldo> They're linked from the "In this Category" nav section on the ACS homepage

2019-09-19 11:49:13 GMT <angelborroy> Ok, now I see that

2019-09-19 11:49:14 GMT <angelborroy> Thanks

2019-09-19 11:49:19 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kgastaldo> NP

2019-09-19 11:51:04 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> @kgastaldo So there is no way of transferring ownership of that page (and a few more we have on addons list)? Are you saying we can instead create new pages under addons, and ask you to delete old pages?

2019-09-19 11:54:36 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> Maybe I can use the "Notify of Inappropriate content" when I want you to remove.

2019-09-19 12:01:20 GMT <alfresco-discord> <monica> Thank you for your quick response. I accept that I will not be able to see the previous activities but if I update the property today then will I be able to see all the activities from today after 50 days ?

2019-09-19 12:02:44 GMT <alfresco-discord> <monica> Is there any way I can do this ? I want to see activities of till 60 days.

2019-09-19 12:05:03 GMT <alfresco-discord> <monica> Currently what is happenning is, I have updated the property today and performed some activity and I am able to see those activities on 60th day.. but the activities on the next day and further days has been disappeared. I can see only today's activities.

2019-09-19 12:05:21 GMT <alfresco-discord> <monica> Please guide me what to do to make it work. ?

2019-09-19 12:05:22 GMT <alfresco-discord> <monica> thanks

2019-09-19 12:12:38 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kgastaldo> @Loftux Exactly. You can let me know changes you'd like to make or recreate the topics (so you own them) and I'll delete the old ones.

2019-09-19 12:22:09 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> OK, I'll create new pages and use the "report" function so that you can remove old pages. That way I can manage them in the future.

2019-09-19 12:23:21 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> I would be nice if there is an option for adding users to the page, maybe I need someone else to update features on the addon page next time.

2019-09-19 12:35:46 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kgastaldo> @Loftux - We're working on a long term solution, based on permissions.

2019-09-19 12:35:49 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kgastaldo> Keep you posted.

2019-09-19 12:50:34 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> @kgastaldo I have reset my password and received an email correctly. However I cannot login. Not sure why honestly but and I cannot verify my username since it is not written in the recovery email. But there is no option to login with the email, just the username

2019-09-19 12:55:52 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kgastaldo> one sec

2019-09-19 12:56:48 GMT <angelborroy> daniel_gradecak

2019-09-19 12:56:58 GMT <angelborroy> @dgradecak this was your username

2019-09-19 12:57:07 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kgastaldo> thanks @angel.borroy

2019-09-19 12:57:28 GMT <angelborroy> I’m learning to use that Khoros/Lithium environment :D

2019-09-19 13:04:17 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kgastaldo> and quickly!

2019-09-19 13:06:13 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> @kgastaldo Done the first page, testing the process. Reported the old page to moderator. I noticed that tables wasn't supported, so that part from old page could not be moved over. Maybe add more labels for that part: "Open Source" "Proprietary" is what I cna come up with.

2019-09-19 13:06:40 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kgastaldo> even with copy/paste of the html code?

2019-09-19 13:07:18 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> It got pasted, but then whe saving, it removed html tags not allowed (I guess the table tags)

2019-09-19 13:16:35 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kgastaldo> that's odd, since they were migrated in with tables.

2019-09-19 13:16:40 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kgastaldo> Let me look into it.

2019-09-19 13:52:57 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> alfresco-gradle-sdk is out: https://github.com/xenit-eu/alfresco-gradle-sdk/releases/tag/1.0.0

2019-09-19 13:52:58 GMT <alfbot> Title:Release 1.0.0 · xenit-eu/alfresco-gradle-sdk · GitHub (at github.com)

2019-09-19 13:53:15 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> Thanks @bhagyas for your contributions

2019-09-19 13:57:53 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> and of course my colleague @lars

2019-09-19 14:25:44 GMT <alfresco-discord> <jpotts> @kgastaldo The new forums look great, good job. Seems clean and easy-to-use so far.

2019-09-19 14:26:04 GMT <alfresco-discord> <jpotts> I do not miss the popup adds. I hope those don't make a return.

2019-09-19 14:28:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> @angelborroy you are the man 😉 thank you

2019-09-19 14:28:25 GMT <angelborroy> you’re welcome ;-)

2019-09-19 19:20:26 GMT <AFaust> @kgastaldo: Why can I create a reply to another persons reply, but then that response does not show any relation to the original one? It is a bit misleading, and people need to remember to somehow refer to or quote the original reply when they want to augment an earlier response, especially if there have been other replies in the meantime.

2019-09-19 19:23:16 GMT <AFaust> Hmm... when I then edit my reply (to add the missing reference) I can actually see that my reply was in response to someone else's

2019-09-19 19:36:47 GMT <AFaust> Hehe.... Looks like the vendor has a quite decidedly US-only point of view: In "Preferences" you can select the language from the options "Default (English (US))" and "English (US)"

2019-09-19 19:37:14 GMT <AFaust> What is the point of the (US) clarification if there is no diverging option?

2019-09-19 19:43:09 GMT <AFaust> Oh wow - since I was surprised to still see an option to specify a Yahoo ID under "IM Screen Names", I actually had to google if Yahoo Messenger still exists. And I was not prepared for the fact that it was discontinued only last year. I though it had been dead for a decade or so...

2019-09-19 19:43:25 GMT <AFaust> though => thought
