Version 3.4.15

Released: August 26, 2020

Changes

API

A new API endpoint was added to show the valid permissions for a model. This is useful when creating or editing ACLs via the API. The URL for the new endpoint is: /api/objects/{app}/{model}/permissions/.

Comments

An issue was fixed where the incorrect user was shown in the logs for the comment edit event. A limitation in the API library used does not allow passing the correct user to the event system. Therefore a future feature was backported and applied only to the comments model to solve the issue.

Settings

The chapter description the settings system was expanded to show the loading order and the priority of the different setting methods.

Workflows

An bug was fixed the caused an error when adding a text area widget for a workflow transition field.

  1. Update the Redis configuration:

    Configure Redis to discard data when it runs out of memory, not save its database, and only keep 2 database:

    echo "maxmemory-policy allkeys-lru" | sudo tee -a /etc/redis/redis.conf
    echo "save \"\"" | sudo tee -a /etc/redis/redis.conf
    echo "databases 2" | sudo tee -a /etc/redis/redis.conf
    echo "requirepass mayanredispassword" | sudo tee -a /etc/redis/redis.conf
    sudo systemctl restart redis
    
  2. Install the Python 3 development OS package:

    sudo apt-get install python3-dev
    
  3. Update the virtualenv to use Python 3:

    sudo -u mayan virtualenv --clear /opt/mayan-edms -p /usr/bin/python3
    
  4. Create a home directory for the Mayan EDMS system user:

    mkdir /home/mayan
    
  5. Grant ownership to the Mayan EDMS system user:

    chown mayan:mayan /home/mayan
    
  6. Reinstall the Python client for PostgreSQL and Redis:

    sudo -u mayan /opt/mayan-edms/bin/pip install psycopg2==2.8.6 redis==3.5.3
    

    Note

    Platforms with the ARM CPU might also need additional requirements:

    sudo -u mayan /opt/mayan-edms/bin/pip install psutil==5.7.0
    
  7. Reinstall the Python client for RabbitMQ if you are using RabbitMQ as a broker:

    echo "requirepass mayanredispassword" | sudo tee -a /etc/redis/redis.conf
    sudo systemctl restart redis
    
  3. Remove deprecated requirements:

    sudo -u mayan curl https://gitlab.com/mayan-edms/mayan-edms/raw/master/removals.txt -o /tmp/removals.txt \
    && sudo -u mayan /opt/mayan-edms/bin/pip uninstall -y -r /tmp/removals.txt

    sudo -u mayan MAYAN_DATABASE_ENGINE=django.db.backends.postgresql MAYAN_DATABASE_NAME=mayan \
    MAYAN_DATABASE_PASSWORD=mayanuserpass MAYAN_DATABASE_USER=mayan \
    MAYAN_DATABASE_HOST=127.0.0.1 MAYAN_MEDIA_ROOT=/opt/mayan-edms/media \
    /opt/mayan-edms/bin/mayan-edms.py platformtemplate supervisord | sudo sh -c "cat > /etc/supervisor/conf.d/mayan.conf"
    

    or:

    sudo -u mayan MAYAN_DATABASES=\"{'default':{'ENGINE':'django.db.backends.postgresql','NAME':'mayan','PASSWORD':'mayanuserpass','USER':'mayan','HOST':'127.0.0.1'}}\" \
    MAYAN_MEDIA_ROOT=/opt/mayan-edms/media \
    /opt/mayan-edms/bin/mayan-edms.py platformtemplate supervisord | sudo sh -c "cat > /etc/supervisor/conf.d/mayan.conf"
    
  7. Edit the supervisord configuration file and update any setting specific to your installation:

    sudo vi /etc/supervisor/conf.d/mayan.conf

    sudo -u mayan MAYAN_DATABASE_ENGINE=django.db.backends.postgresql MAYAN_DATABASE_NAME=mayan \
    MAYAN_DATABASE_PASSWORD=mayanuserpass MAYAN_DATABASE_USER=mayan \
    MAYAN_DATABASE_HOST=127.0.0.1 MAYAN_MEDIA_ROOT=/opt/mayan-edms/media \
    /opt/mayan-edms/bin/mayan-edms.py performupgrade
    

    or:

     sudo -u mayan MAYAN_DATABASES="{'default':{'ENGINE':'django.db.backends.postgresql','NAME':'mayan','PASSWORD':'mayanuserpass','USER':'mayan','HOST':'127.0.0.1'}}" \
     MAYAN_MEDIA_ROOT=/opt/mayan-edms/media \
    /opt/mayan-edms/bin/mayan-edms.py performupgrade
