I am working on my first ADF application. I have created the template application OK using the yo tooling, I can log onto the Alfresco Content Services however I have trouble when I set the Process Services switch to on. When I do this I get the following error message..."Request has been terminated Possible causes: the network is offline, Origin is not allowed by Access-Control-Allow-Origin, the page is being unloaded, etc.". I can log into the Activiti web app OK and the web app is running at 'http://127.0.0.1:9080/activiti-app' and the ADF settings are showing 'http://127.0.0.1:9080'. I am assuming that there is a CORS issue with APS.
I am running Activiti 6.0.0 in Tomcat 7.0.79. I have read the CORS instructions for APS, these say modify <activity>/tomcat/lib/activiti-app.properties but in my install I dont have a properties file in this location; the properties file is in <activity>/tomcat/webapps/activiti-app/WEB-INF/classes/META-INF/activiti-app/activiti-app.properties.
I have added the following lines to the above file and changed the admin password to the same as the admin password in Alfresco (lines added are cors.enabled=true, security.csrf.disabled=true). I have then restarted the Activit tomcat instance, I can now login at the Activiti app with admin/admin so I belived the changes in the file have been read, but when I login to the ADF app I still get the same error described above. I have also created an activiti-app.properties file in <activiti>/tomcat/lib and placed the CORS lines in this file but it does not change anything.
I really love the idea of ADF and belive we can create much better applications around Alfresco/Activiti in this way, before ADF creating custom applications took a long time.
Using the browser network debug I noticed that the calls from the browser were still going direct to the original ports (i.e. direct to 8080 & 9080), I updated the settings in the prod & dev config files, restarted and could now log on. I guess changing the settings in the config menu has no affect and they are more for information than real time editing.
I have now created a business application in Activiti and am trying to access this from the ADF application. When I click the ADF link I am seeing a 'there are no business applications' type of message in the ADF window so now I will try and work this one through. There is an error message in the Activiti log but I have not been able to work out the detail yet.
Many thanks for the support and I hope that someone else finds this useful. I will update with information from Activiti error when I have the details
