How to install trash clean in alfresco community 4.2

Hello, I need you to tell me how to install this https://github.com/rjmfernandes/alfresco-trashcan-cleaner on my alfresco 4.2.
Unfortunately I have no idea how to do that. I hope they can give me some help.
Thanks!

Re: How to install trash clean in alfresco community 4.2

Clone the project and build it. It should result in an amp file. Check this : https://github.com/rjmfernandes/alfresco-trashcan-cleaner/blob/master/pom.xml#L9

git clone https://github.com/rjmfernandes/alfresco-trashcan-cleaner.git

cd alfresco-trashcan-cleaner

mvn clean install

You need to install that amp to alfresco.war file. Check this doc on how to install the amps (unfortunately docs are not available for your specific version but 5.2 docs should be relevant) : https://docs.alfresco.com/content-services/5.2/develop/extension-packaging/#using-the-module-managem...

Re: How to install trash clean in alfresco community 4.2

Thanks for your answer, but my level is very basic to compile what you indicate. What is mvn? Will it be possible to do a step by step on how to install this module?

Re: How to install trash clean in alfresco community 4.2

mvn is maven command line. You may go through this or any tutorial (just google) to learn basics of maven: https://www.tutorialspoint.com/maven/index.htm 

What i outlined above are the basic steps. Let me try to add it point by point if that helps. These are very basic steps that needs to be performed to get the extension applied to your repository.

1- Clone the repository on your machine

git clone https://github.com/rjmfernandes/alfresco-trashcan-cleaner.git

 2- Once cloned, go to the alfresco-trashcan-cleaner folder/directory:

cd alfresco-trashcan-cleaner

3- Execute maven command to build, package and install the project as an amp. Amp stands for "alfresco module package". It is a way to apply any customizations on alfresco.war or share.war as required. You can learn in detail about amps here: https://docs.alfresco.com/content-services/latest/develop/extension-packaging/

mvn clean install

4- Once command is succesful, install the amp on alfresco.war file:

java -jar <yourAlfrescoInstallation>/bin/alfresco-mmt-2.1.0.jar install <yourlocalworkspace>/alfresco-trashcan-cleaner/target/alfresco-trashcan-cleaner-2.1-SNAPSHOT.amp <yourAlfrescoInstallation>/tomcat/webapps/alfresco.war 

If maven is not available on your server/machine, install it and update the path so that you can execute the above given maven command. You can see this tutorial on how to install maven as needed: https://www.baeldung.com/install-maven-on-windows-linux-mac

Re: How to install trash clean in alfresco community 4.2

@MrNico check the comments in the pom file here: https://github.com/rjmfernandes/alfresco-trashcan-cleaner/blob/master/pom.xml#L85

Comment out this:

<repository>
            <id>alfresco-private-repository</id>
            <url>https://artifacts.alfresco.com/nexus/content/groups/private</url>
</repository>

and uncomment:

       <repository>
            <id>alfresco-public</id>
            <url>https://artifacts.alfresco.com/nexus/content/groups/public</url>

            <url>https://artifacts.alfresco.com/nexus/content/groups/public-snapshots</url>
        </repository>

Then, try maven command again (mvn clean install).

after reviewing the pom.xml file I have managed to make it connect to the "community" repository but even though it downloads many files, it finally gives the following error

Re: How to install trash clean in alfresco community 4.2

It seems that the add-on is using enterperise version number by default. You have to update the pom file to use community version:

https://github.com/rjmfernandes/alfresco-trashcan-cleaner/blob/master/pom.xml#L27

https://github.com/rjmfernandes/alfresco-trashcan-cleaner/blob/master/pom.xml#L37

Change below properties to use version "4.2.f" instead of "4.2.0" in the pom file and try maven command again.

<alfresco.version>4.2.f</alfresco.version>
<alfresco.client.war.version>4.2.f</alfresco.client.war.version>

It may still not work for you, when i tried i got the below error:

 Could not resolve dependencies for project org.alfresco:alfresco-trashcan-cleaner:amp:2.1-SNAPSHOT: The following artifacts could not be resolved: org.springframework.extensions.surf:spring-surf-core-configservice:jar:1.2.0-M14, org.springframework.extensions.surf:spring-webscripts:jar:1.2.0-M14, org.springframework.extensions.surf:spring-webscripts-api:jar:1.2.0-M14, org.springframework.social:spring-social-facebook:jar:1.0.0.RC1: Could not find artifact org.springframework.extensions.surf:spring-surf-core-configservice:jar:1.2.0-M14 in central (https://repo1.maven.org/maven2/) -> [Help 1]

Seems these jars are no longer available in the repository here: https://artifacts.alfresco.com/nexus/content/repositories/public/org/springframework/extensions/surf or https://artifacts.alfresco.com/nexus/content/groups/public/org/springframework/extensions/surf

I had to additionally add the below dependencies with a version that's available:

<dependency>
	<groupId>org.springframework.extensions.surf</groupId>
	<artifactId>spring-surf-core-configservice</artifactId>
	<version>1.2.0-M17</version>
	<scope>provided</scope>

If you are still having issues building this project, you can download the amp from here that i generated from this project and apply it to alfresco.war : https://github.com/abhinavmishra14/alfresco-4.2-trashcan-cleaner/blob/master/dist/alfresco-trashcan-...

Alternatively, you can also down this jar file directly and just copy it to "tomcat/webapps/alfresco/Web-INF/lib", if above option still doesn't work :

https://artifacts.alfresco.com/nexus/service/local/repositories/releases/content/org/alfresco/alfres...

The above jar is built from this project : https://github.com/Alfresco/alfresco-trashcan-cleaner-module

Re: How to install trash clean in alfresco community 4.2

I appreciate the effort, but I give up already, I tried to use the amp file you sent me, but it gives error when I restart alfresco. Also try uploading the "jar" file and it also gives an error

Re: How to install trash clean in alfresco community 4.2

Did you configure these in global properties file before restarting ?

trashcan.cron=0 30 * * * ?

trashcan.daysToKeep=1

trashcan.deleteBatchCount=1000
