Daily Log for #alfresco

2019-09-20 00:06:10 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kgastaldo> What was your IM Screen Name?

2019-09-20 00:06:26 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kgastaldo> Mine was PassingTime1025 (for any New Found Glory fans out there)

2019-09-20 00:33:59 GMT <AFaust> Never had Yahoo Messenger... In Germany, AOL IM was quite big in the early days.

2019-09-20 00:34:37 GMT <AFaust> Back in those days, my nick used to be AxelMcMuffin... on some platforms (e.g. Steam), it still is

2019-09-20 06:45:52 GMT *** alxgomz_ is now known as alxgomz

2019-09-20 07:45:08 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> @Thijs Thank you! It was a pleasure 🙂

2019-09-20 09:43:19 GMT <tenaglia> good morning

2019-09-20 09:44:34 GMT <tenaglia> I would like to install the community edition on Debian. I have seen Debian is not a supported platform according to https://docs.alfresco.com/6.0/concepts/supported-platforms-ACS.html . Do you know if it applies also to the community edition, ie it is advised to use Ubuntu/CentOS?

2019-09-20 09:44:35 GMT <alfbot> Title:Supported Platforms | Alfresco Documentation (at docs.alfresco.com)

2019-09-20 09:45:48 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Toon Geens> it works perfectly fine on Debian

2019-09-20 09:46:22 GMT <angelborroy> That “Supported Platforms” includes configurations where the product has been tested

2019-09-20 09:46:29 GMT <angelborroy> So, it’s safe to use any of that options

2019-09-20 09:46:51 GMT <tenaglia> OK thanks angelborroy and Toon Geens

2019-09-20 09:46:57 GMT <angelborroy> Anyway, in your case, it’s safe to use Debian

2019-09-20 09:49:34 GMT <tenaglia> another question: I cannot seem to find a list of prerequisites. https://docs.alfresco.com/community/concepts/install-zip-overview.html says "validate that you have the prerequisites you need by checking the required software versions. This includes a JRE, a supported database, Tomcat application server, a message broker (i.e. ActiveMQ), Alfresco Search Services, and additional components (such as ImageMagick)." . Do you know where I can find

2019-09-20 11:23:02 GMT <angelborroy> tenaglia Probably this can help https://github.com/OrderOfTheBee/beecon/blob/gh-pages/2017/assets/files/EF09/EF09-Installing-Alfresco-components-1-by-1.pdf

2019-09-20 11:23:13 GMT <angelborroy> It’s more ore less the same form 201909 release

2019-09-20 12:39:33 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> @angel.borroy Is there a way I could see the contents of: https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/browse/SEARCH-903

2019-09-20 12:39:36 GMT <alfbot> Title:Log in - Alfresco JIRA (at issues.alfresco.com)

2019-09-20 12:40:09 GMT <angelborroy> Try again

2019-09-20 12:41:08 GMT <angelborroy> I changed visibility, so you should view it now

2019-09-20 12:42:18 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> Thanks

2019-09-20 12:42:29 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Thijs> that looks a lot like what I'm experiencing

2019-09-20 13:02:15 GMT <alfresco-discord> <drazen04> Hi guys, someone has solved in some way the impossibility to search for associations?

2019-09-20 13:02:27 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> nope

2019-09-20 13:02:51 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> there are costy workarounds though

2019-09-20 13:03:06 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> like using noderef attributes/properties

2019-09-20 13:03:20 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> or string props pointing to the ID of the associated element

2019-09-20 13:03:32 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> that link then will need to be maintained by behaviours

2019-09-20 13:03:48 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> not the best solution, but it could work depending on the usecase

2019-09-20 13:04:13 GMT <angelborroy> We have identified that and we have a short spike on it

2019-09-20 13:04:21 GMT <angelborroy> But the ticket is not under any plan

2019-09-20 13:04:44 GMT <angelborroy> So I don’t know when will be developed or if it’s going to be developed at all

2019-09-20 13:07:51 GMT <alfresco-discord> <drazen04> Thank you

2019-09-20 13:57:39 GMT <tenaglia> angelborroy: wow that's much longer than what's on the official doc

2019-09-20 13:57:47 GMT <tenaglia> that I'm struggling with, BTW

2019-09-20 13:58:18 GMT <angelborroy> you can use this also as reference

2019-09-20 14:56:24 GMT <angelborroy> As there are not blog post, I used a question to add this information

2019-09-20 14:56:34 GMT <angelborroy> Any comment will be welcomed!

2019-09-20 15:17:11 GMT <alfresco-discord> <drazen04> If i need assignees for a current task starting from workflowInstance Java side which way i can do better?

2019-09-20 16:48:22 GMT <alfresco-discord> <anghelutar> @angel.borroy is there a way to get notified via email in case of releases for search services (or other components)

2019-09-20 16:50:01 GMT <alfresco-discord> <angel.borroy> Not by now

2019-09-20 16:50:22 GMT <alfresco-discord> <angel.borroy> I don’t know if Nexus has some option for that

2019-09-20 16:54:13 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> @anghelutar you might watch the github project, might be a bit overwhelming, perhaps just the releases page ? https://github.com/Alfresco/SearchServices/releases
