A.A.A.R. v2.2 with interactive dashboards and free analysis

Finally the date came!

Starting from the requests and the collaboration of some of you, the brand new A.A.A.R. v2.2 has been released. I would like to explicitly thank strategicfunctions.com for the contribution. As usual it has been an interesting experience.

The main new feature is obviously the interactive dashboard on audit trail.

But also the two brand new free analysis on audit trail and repository.

Last but not least, a brand new report on documents in sites (strongly requested from the community).

I have lots of new ideas to develop but what would you like to see more in the A.A.A.R.?

A.A.A.R. not showing buttons (SOLVED)

After the installation, if your AAAR is not showing Configure/Install/Use buttons, please update Pentaho with the latest “Community Graphics Generator” and “Community Dashboards Framework”. The solution is described here.

AAAR_for_marketplaceI have received few contacts on that problem so I think would be useful to share the solution one time for all. Thank you to jservajean and kossel for sharing the experience.

A.A.A.R. bugfix: Invalid column for cmis:document cmis:objectid

AAAR_for_marketplace

While getting the parent path of the Alfresco nodes, the CMIS query could contain a bug in the ‘cmis:objectid’ field. Instead of ‘cmis:objectid’ should be used ‘cmis:objectId’ (pay attention to the camel case). A new FAQ has been added to the A.A.A.R. FAQ page.

I’m investigating the context because not all the environments requests that camel case format. Until than, if you have a message below:

Failed to execute script 'classpath*:alfresco/template/webscripts/org/alfresco/cmis/queries.post.cmisquery.js’:
Invalid column for cmis:document cmis:objectid

Please modify the query under ‘/Alfresco/Staging/Utility/Set folder’s children’ as described below:

select
cmis:objectId as cmis_objectid,
cmis:name as cmis_name
from
cmis:document
where
in_folder(”${cmis_parentid}”)
and cmis:lastModificationDate >= TIMESTAMP ”${cmis_last_update}”
and cmis:contentStreamLength >= 0′);

Many thanks to Micheal Fraser and Hu Ting Ung for the investigation and correction. Please, don’t stop contact me making suggestions, improvement and corrections to the solution.

Alfresco Audit Analysis and Reporting version 2.0 in Pentaho Marketplace.

AAAR_for_marketplaceThe Alfresco Audit Analysis and Reporting has been released with a major version 2.0. What I enjoyed most developing this brand new version is to develop directly in the new Pentaho 5 Suite, using the new Sparkl Application Builder with the support of Webdetails. About this, I would like to explicitly thank Pedro Alves (SVP of Community for Pentaho) and Pedro Vale (Product Development Leader at Webdetails).

AAAR_marketplace_1

This new release contains lot of relevant improvements (link to change log) but the most important ones are:

The recent section of the Alfresco forum about Business Reporting is a good place to receive support from all the interested people about tuning, customizations and support in general. But if you ask you what to do for the project (and for you, by consequence) take a look here.

A.A.A.R.

A new version 1.5 of the A.A.A.R. – Alfresco audit analisys and reporting has been released with a smarter installation wizard and the compliance to the recent Pentaho 5 release (the compliance with Pentaho 4 still remain). This version makes the adoption of A.A.A.R. solution very easy and (quite) ready for the inclusion in the Pentaho marketplace. Stay tuned for new updates!

Below some useful links:

Alfresco Audit Analysis and Reporting installer

Do you want try the A.A.A.R. solution but you think the installation process it’s a little bit tricky?

Are you wondering an easy wizard with a few-click process without the need of technical skills?

Do you want to see the A.A.A.R. solution immediately in action with sample data inside?

pentaho-logoStarting from now I plan to work on that task. In particular, I would like to explicitly thank Pedro Alves of the Pentaho team for the suggestions and strategy, making what is going to be, really simple to install and easy to use in few minutes of your (precious) time.

A.A.A.R.

To be a little bit more clear, I’m going to release the A.A.A.R. solution in the Pentaho Marketplace with a Sparkl integration. This means that the Alfresco analytics will be available with an automatic installation procedure that will not require technical skills. Want to know more technical details? Take a look here.

In particular the process will be:
1) Install the Penthaho Suite.
2) Install A.A.A.R. from the marketplace.
3) Next, next, next… and enjoy!

Some of you are asking me about the release of the A.A.A.R. Analytics.
I plan to release it under this new installation package so, please, a little bit of patience and stay tuned. 😉

Thanks for the comprehension.

A.A.A.R. Analytics video n.1 of 10 – The main dashboard

AAAR Analytics - Video n.1 of 16 - The main dashboardImagine to analyze Alfresco data with some real interactive tools, making possible to develop your own free analysis and charts to include in your web pages, presentations or communications to your staff.

No software development, no technical skills required but a really simple user console for a knowledge worker and not a IT professional.

This is what I was thinking while I was developing the AAAR Analytics.

2013-11-06 Alfresco - Speaking BarcelonaAAAR Analytics will be released soon and I’m going to present it to the next Alfresco Summit in Barcelona. Starting from today I would like to share some videos I have developed, to better understand what the solution is and how easy is to use. With this post I share the very first video and I plan to release one video every couple of days, announced with a twit on @FrkCorti.
