Daily Log for #alfresco

2019-12-09 08:02:08 GMT <alfresco-discord> <monica> Thanks Afaust, Sorry for the late response. I have tried with fresh installation and there is no customization, just a blank instance I have creted followed https://github.com/Alfresco/alfresco-docker-installer Its running fine with no errors or exceptions. but still create-site option in not visible.

2019-12-09 08:02:08 GMT <alfresco-discord> <monica> https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/451644531323174914/653506647733305344/Screenshot_from_2019-12-09_13-13-09.png

2019-12-09 08:02:09 GMT <alfbot> Title:GitHub - Alfresco/alfresco-docker-installer: Generator to build Docker Compose templates to deploy Alfresco Community (at github.com)

2019-12-09 08:02:27 GMT <alfresco-discord> <monica> Please guide.

2019-12-09 08:08:37 GMT <AFaust> Unfortunately the screenshot does not show the contents of the "Sites" menu when expanded. Therein should be the action to create a new site, especially given that you are logged in as an administrator.

2019-12-09 09:15:21 GMT <alfresco-discord> <monica> For the "Sites" menu, there are three options : My Sites, Sites Finder and Fvourites

2019-12-09 10:01:23 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> Did you install this addon: https://github.com/jpotts/share-site-creators ?

2019-12-09 10:01:24 GMT <alfbot> Title:GitHub - jpotts/share-site-creators: An Alfresco add-on that limits site creation to those in a specific group. (at github.com)

2019-12-09 10:01:55 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> If yes, then you need to add the admin account into the group created by this addon, otherwise it won't be able to create sites

2019-12-09 10:03:57 GMT <alfresco-discord> <monica> Thanks. I haven't installed this yet. Let me try this. will this addon work with alfresco 6.2 ?

2019-12-09 10:37:05 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> Don't install it but maybe check in the list of groups? Is there any SITE_ groups?

2019-12-09 10:48:10 GMT <alfresco-discord> <monica> Yes. It worked .. thanks alot for your help..

2019-12-09 10:48:37 GMT <alfresco-discord> <monica> I didn't knew that we have to add admin user to the particular group.

2019-12-09 10:50:52 GMT <AFaust> You don't have to - in standard Alfresco. Only if you installed that addon do you have to.

2019-12-09 10:56:28 GMT <alfresco-discord> <monica> ohhh.. okay.. thanks for the information.. I'll try without addon.

2019-12-09 11:16:36 GMT <hi-ko> AFaust: fyi sharding seems not to work with Alfresco 6.1 CE as described: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/59244353/creating-solr-shards-in-alfresco-6-1-ce

2019-12-09 11:16:37 GMT <alfbot> Title:solr6 - Creating Solr shards in Alfresco 6.1 CE - Stack Overflow (at stackoverflow.com)

2019-12-09 11:18:31 GMT <AFaust> Why do you put the /solr/#/alfresco URL in there? That is only the URL for the browser admin view AFAIK

2019-12-09 11:18:56 GMT <hi-ko> I just followed the docs

2019-12-09 11:19:04 GMT <AFaust> I see that now...

2019-12-09 11:19:53 GMT <AFaust> I don't think that has always been in the docs that way. After my initial forray into sharding with 5.1, I have never checked the docs again afterwards for this...

2019-12-09 11:25:55 GMT <AFaust> URLs should be without the extra /#/ - so just solr.mycompany.com:8983/solr/alfresco

2019-12-09 12:16:54 GMT <hi-ko> AFaust: removing the # results in http 500 on alfresco / and in solr o.a.s.c.SolrContentStore Failed to get doc from store using URL: solr://_DEFAULT_/db/5226/5320.gz

2019-12-09 12:17:21 GMT <hi-ko> but I could read the file by: zless $SOLR_HOME/contentstore/_DEFAULT_/db/5226/5320.gz

2019-12-09 12:17:46 GMT <hi-ko> solr has been started with SOLR_OPTS="$SOLR_OPTS -Dsolr.solr.content.dir=/var/lib/solr/contentstore"

2019-12-09 12:17:48 GMT <AFaust> The *.gz files should have nothing to do with executing queries against those URLs. The *.gz files are only used during indexing

2019-12-09 12:18:10 GMT <AFaust> So I don't see how this error could be a consequence of changing the URLs

2019-12-09 12:18:58 GMT <AFaust> Do you have a stack trace for the error?

2019-12-09 12:19:10 GMT <hi-ko> I try to fiddle that out in https://github.com/Alfresco/SearchServices/issues/232 with michaelsuzukisagi

2019-12-09 12:19:11 GMT <alfbot> Title:Sharding seems not to work as documented in Alfresco 6.1 CE · Issue #232 · Alfresco/SearchServices · GitHub (at github.com)

2019-12-09 12:35:30 GMT <hi-ko> strack trace is in the issue mentioned above. I guess solr is using the wrong protocol (http instead of https)

2019-12-09 13:17:37 GMT <AFaust> hi-ko: I meant the stack trace for the new error "Failed to get doc..." - not the original error

2019-12-09 13:18:21 GMT <AFaust> But I see you updated the GitHub issue with that...

2019-12-09 13:19:49 GMT <AFaust> Though that is now another error, not the one mentioned before.

2019-12-09 13:19:58 GMT <AFaust> Well, good luck getting this sorted with Michael

2019-12-09 13:34:20 GMT <hi-ko> AFaust: the "Failed to get doc..." seems to be a false error and should be downgraded to info when trying to get the doc metadata from the solr cache

2019-12-09 14:35:42 GMT <hi-ko> AFaust: as guessed: after disabling https on solr the sharded access works as expected. search performance is more or less the same if running on only one solr jvm.
