Just a quick post today... Helped a client who was getting a message in the logs after configuring the SAML SP in Liferay using an ADFS IdP: Caused by: org.opensaml.ws.security.SecurityPolicyException: Inbound message issuer was not authenticated. at org.opensaml.ws.security.provider.MandatoryAuthenticatedMessageRule.evaluate(MandatoryAuthenticatedMessageRule.java:38) ...

Participate in an Open Source project? Meaning ... do what exactly? The trouble with that phrase is that everyone puts their own meaning in it. Some will claim it’s not participation unless you write code. Others will claim that’s actually “contributing” (which IMHO is not less ambiguous word) and everything else is participation. For us, it’s simple - whatever you do to make our...

As expected (we wrote the redirect rules after all) and confirmed by our access logs, the documentation was the first place you discovered in the new Liferay Portal website. But did you notice what has changed apart from the URL? New documentation structure  The 7.2 developer docs are now organized in a new way - grouped by tasks you as developer may have:  ...

Have you been asked “What is Liferay Portal?” or “Why are you using it?” or similar questions? Given all the things it actually is and does, it is sometimes hard to find a simple and accurate answer! So we thought we would provide one for you: It’s The Java Platform for Busy Developers   At least, that is what we believe it is and we are working hard to make it easier...

It’s been almost two months now and most of you have probably managed to get used to the new websites and domain names. We invested a lot of time into making the right redirects and to not break your browsing habits. Given the very few issues reported it seems we succeeded. That said, you may have been focused only on the things relevant to you at the moment and missed the big...

Same procedure as last year: Devcon 2019 is coming closer, and with it everybody is working behind the scenes to make it even more awesome than last year. You don't need to take my word for it: Take Andrew's. In 2019 we are back in the center of Germany, in the beautiful town of Mainz, which is very close to Frankfurt, thus really easy to reach from everywhere. Just like...

It is with mixed feelings that I am announcing that I am leaving Liferay to pursue other opportunities. Friday, August 2nd was my last day. The Liferay Faces project will continue to be in the capable hands of Neil Griffin. It’s been more than 6 years since Neil hired me to work on the Liferay Faces team, and from almost day 1, he encouraged me to get involved with the community. I...

This content is meant to be added as a use case to the 7.2 Workflow Scripting official documentation, but isn't ready to go through the full process an official docs article passes through. In the Category Specific Definition, there’s a script in a condition node with logic for determining whether to proceed to one transition or another, based on whether the asset is categorized as...

Hey, did you know that the Gradle version of the Liferay Workspace now supports building your very own customized Liferay Docker images? Neither did I... I stumbled upon this support in the recent Blade releases. I think at this point in time it might officially be considered as "incubating", but I've given it a spin and feel like it is in good enough shape to start spreading the...

The Liferay Workspace comes with a great build option that I'm not sure developers know about and/or use - distribution bundles. When you have your Gradle-based workspace, the simple command gradlew distBundleZip or gradlew distBundleTar can build you a prepackaged Liferay bundle using Liferay CE or DXP, Tomcat, your custom modules as well as your configuration for the targeted...

Okay, so I'm like working on a bigger project that will be a bigger blog sometime soon, but I really need a current Liferay DXP tarball. When I say current, I mean that it must have: The latest version of Tomcat 9 Fixpacks (and possibly hotfixes) applied. As a DXP client, this just won't be available to you for download. Even if you are just using Liferay CE,...

I was recently fishing for topics to build potential sessions for Devcon 2019 (you're going, right? ;-) ) and one community member suggested the topic of Service Trackers. While I'm not sure I could fill a whole session on service trackers, I think I can certainly fill a blog entry about them... What Are Service Trackers The best way I can describe service trackers, well they...

Liferay 7.2 has an updated Service Builder that introduces some changes that we should all be aware of. From a Dependency Injection perspective, not really much is going to change for us when it comes to consuming the services. Just as we did for 7.0 and 7.1, we will still have a member variable in our @Component for a service instance and then @Reference inject it in. As long as...

A customer wanted to integrate the german Servicekonto with Liferay. The Servicekonto is an authentication service used by (or at least planned to be used) by several german federal states. It offers an authentication mechanism for citizens and organizations. Every citizen can create an account using the new german identity card. As the Servicekonto offers to authenticate via OpenID...

Over the last few months, we at Liferay Support have encountered multiple customers who were having trouble with MEMORY_CLUSTERED scheduled jobs disappearing in their clustered environments. In trying to figure out why their clustered jobs were disappearing, we learned that the problem lay in a misunderstanding of the (undocumented) API that the customer was calling during their...

Recently, I was faced with the task of importing a large number of products from several warehouses and  product images into Liferay Commerce.  The upsert code itself to import the data was fairly straightforward, but the challenge was the sheer number of records inserted initially. The import was bound to be long-running, no doubt, and was going to run in the...
