2019-12-18 08:52:49 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> fwu2018: did you have a look into SAML ?
2019-12-18 09:31:30 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> not supported for CE
2019-12-18 10:54:06 GMT <fwu2018> hi all
2019-12-18 11:25:49 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> @yreg well, do not look what alfresco has to offer, look about integrations. So if oyu have an apache setup with saml and a external auth on alfresco, it works with SAML. So paying for the module I do not see the point
2019-12-18 11:26:11 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> done at least on 5 big installation
2019-12-18 11:26:32 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> I have seen EE clients using it as well, no
2019-12-18 11:27:05 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> why not?
2019-12-18 11:54:08 GMT <fwu2018> ppl, regarding authentication integration, can someone tell me if Im not thinking wrong on this:
2019-12-18 11:55:37 GMT <fwu2018> if I have a custom client using the rest API, all the client need is an Alfresco token to work. If I need to authenticate agianst ADFS, shouldnt I just need to create a custom authentication provider that if returns an ok would trhow back the alfresco token to the client?
2019-12-18 11:55:57 GMT <fwu2018> create = implemnet in Alfresco
2019-12-18 12:11:09 GMT <fwu2018> because the other option it seems I have is to activate external authentication to CAS in apache, that tehn point to ADFS...?
2019-12-18 12:11:15 GMT <fwu2018> anyone implemented this?
2019-12-18 20:48:00 GMT <paradoxguitarist> Anyone have any suggestions for migrating off of alfresco?
2019-12-18 20:49:37 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> Why would you want to do so ?
2019-12-18 20:49:56 GMT <paradoxguitarist> It's not meeting our needs anymore.. =/
2019-12-18 20:51:10 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> What's the alternative you are going to migrate to ?
2019-12-18 20:51:37 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> CE vs EE or totally a different solution ?
2019-12-18 20:52:15 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> I am asking because you might be thinking to move away based on wrong reasons ...
2019-12-18 20:52:20 GMT <paradoxguitarist> We are actually paying for EE and it hasn't been working out, so I'm looking into other solutions.
2019-12-18 20:52:37 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> Which Alfresco version are you on ? and what's not working out for you ?
2019-12-18 20:54:11 GMT <paradoxguitarist> 5.3 Our support experience has been pretty frustating over the past month to the point where I've complained, but haven't actually gotten anywhere even after that with lots of mis-information and whatnot.
2019-12-18 20:54:44 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> You are not the first one
2019-12-18 20:54:50 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> welcome to the club 😄
2019-12-18 20:55:04 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> but have you tried reaching out to the community for help ?
2019-12-18 20:55:08 GMT <paradoxguitarist> ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
2019-12-18 20:55:08 GMT <paradoxguitarist> Just doesn't feel like it's worth the price/effort.
2019-12-18 20:56:38 GMT <paradoxguitarist> Well I have tickets in with the engineering team, but no. My team members didn't even know this chat existed, but I stumbled on it.
