Daily Log for #alfresco

2020-02-12 09:07:40 GMT <Uzzi> @LMattioli then I've to "sync" files nas-alfresco site?

2020-02-12 12:00:55 GMT <angelborroy> hey

2020-02-12 12:01:21 GMT <angelborroy> we have internal discussions about moving to Elastic or to SolrCloud (this is the way we were following now)

2020-02-12 12:01:55 GMT <angelborroy> Moving to Elastic will be a 1-2 years journey to have something โ€œequivalentโ€ to current Search Service

2020-02-12 12:02:00 GMT <angelborroy> Any feedback from you?

2020-02-12 12:05:35 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> oh really

2020-02-12 12:07:05 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> I have been using elastic on a couple of small projects, many things are similar of course as with solr. When I needed customizing elastic, it was not easy as with solr for the same features

2020-02-12 12:07:25 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> but why is that coming to the table now?

2020-02-12 12:08:56 GMT <angelborroy> sales pitch

2020-02-12 12:10:18 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> crazy stuff ๐Ÿ˜„

2020-02-12 12:14:03 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> TBH the way Alfresco is customizing solr seems quite different then anyone else on the market (at least that's what some solr specialist told me a while back)

2020-02-12 12:14:53 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> I know there was a lot of fuzz back and forth about elastic, I know as well of few alfresco customers trying to implement it on their own (for "alignment" reasons)

2020-02-12 12:15:13 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> but I don't think it is worth 2 more years without new features

2020-02-12 12:16:15 GMT <angelborroy> Thanks all

2020-02-12 12:16:29 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> well they would gain a lot of out of the box UI features

2020-02-12 12:16:30 GMT <angelborroy> If you think something more, please reach me to gather your opinion

2020-02-12 12:17:00 GMT <angelborroy> What kind of features, dgradecak?

2020-02-12 12:17:06 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> look at what the focus on techy things (kubernetes etc...) got the product so far: lots of existing clients considering a move out of Alfresco or at least out of EE because they do no longer get the disruption and innovation they used to... and it's even harder to land new customers ...

2020-02-12 12:17:19 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> whenever I had to show something out of alfresco, I just extracted the "nodes" into elastic

2020-02-12 12:19:44 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> a small inovation I did is a JWT authentication for alfresco reusing Identity service as authentication mechanism and works with share

2020-02-12 12:23:11 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> quite easy to enable google/facebook ... oauth2. I will write a blog post and publish the config, maybe someone will be interested. In the mean time ping me

2020-02-12 13:11:23 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> I am interested on that > quite easy to enable google/facebook ... oauth2. I will write a blog post and publish the config, maybe someone will be interested. In the mean time ping me

2020-02-12 13:12:46 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> but I am just in the process of making a gihub repo with the code and howto

2020-02-12 13:13:08 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> I hope it will be accepted for the devcon ๐Ÿ˜‰

2020-02-12 13:18:39 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> cool

2020-02-12 13:31:29 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> I wonder if there are real clients who actually fall for such overly American marketing:

2020-02-12 13:31:30 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/451644531323174914/677144739488989195/unknown.png

2020-02-12 13:32:48 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> hehe, you said it all

2020-02-12 13:33:47 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> ECS solutions are meant to be B2B solutions, but Alfresco's marketing line seems more like B2C and as if it is targeting teenagers, not C-level management ....

2020-02-12 13:33:49 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> but honestly, 10y ago I built on top of Alfresco with a custom UI based on ExtJS, for 3 different insurance companies and they are still using it (but with custom UI of course)

2020-02-12 13:34:44 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> I am not arguing the content, I am just noting that the packaging doesn't look or feel right to me ....

2020-02-12 13:36:16 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> I think that many people who read that, do not know (like you) what is really there

2020-02-12 13:36:53 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> I mean, you are working with it every day and you know it better than most of the people

2020-02-12 13:39:04 GMT <alfresco-discord> <EddieMay> @dgradecak Just noticed your blog on SSO over Spring Cloud Gateway. Can I put a link to it on the new Hub monthly Digest (https://hub.alfresco.com/t5/news-announcements/january-2020-community-digest/ba-p/295893) in February?

2020-02-12 13:39:05 GMT <alfbot> Title:Community Digest Jan 2020 (at hub.alfresco.com)

2020-02-12 13:39:34 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> sure @EddieMay if you find it worth

2020-02-12 16:01:41 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> hi @EddieMay did you manage to find out if we can expect a community release before devcon ?

2020-02-12 16:13:01 GMT <alfresco-discord> <EddieMay> Hi @digcat - not yet sorry, I've been catching up since returning from holiday. I'll ask again asap.

2020-02-12 16:16:31 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> righto thanks

2020-02-12 16:49:56 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MartinM> @dgradecak oauth2 FB like with key cloak maybe?

2020-02-12 16:54:25 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> @MartinM indeed, but with spring security only

2020-02-12 17:06:31 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> @Douglas Paes (douglascrp) https://github.com/dgradecak/alfresco-jwt-auth I pushed the code

2020-02-12 17:06:47 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> sorry for the picture!

2020-02-12 20:58:11 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MartinM> @dgradecak interesting ๐Ÿค”
