This is a continuation of last week’s article, “Get there faster! Performance improvements in Nuxeo, and what to watch out for — Part 1” — be sure to check that one out too.
Recently I worked a lot on performance optimizations for one of our projects and the results were quite impressive: we improved the loading speed of some pages up to 10 times. My colleague, Mariana Cedica, suggested that I write this blog post so others could benefit from my experience, so keep reading for the main changes we implemented.
An exploit for a critical zero-day vulnerability affecting Apache Log4j2 was disclosed on December 9, 2021. All versions of Log4j2 versions >= 2.0-beta9 and <= 2.14.1 are affected by this vulnerability. This is fixed in version 2.15.0.
Every few years a client asks me about how to configure dynamic document types (or schemas) in Nuxeo. This is actually not a common requirement but it’s a fun little challenge to take and since we’ve implemented this before, I’m going to explain here a solution that could work for you as well.
“A feature flag is a software development process used to enable or disable functionality remotely without deploying code. New features can be deployed without making them visible to users. Feature flags help decouple deployment from release letting you manage the full lifecycle of a feature”
I recently read this awesome blog post by Jackie https://eeikkaj.medium.com/how-to-select-all-documents-from-search-and-send-to-bulk-action-9d3faa778ecc and decided to follow it and to show you how easy it is to implement a feature that could be very useful to some of your end users. As a matter of fact, all the building blocks are already there for you, you just have to understand how everything fits together, and assemble them.
“How do we migrate Nuxeo from a SQL database to MongoDB?” This question comes up a lot and while it’s a complex topic that depends very much on the project, I think it’s very useful to lay out a few things to consider and steps on how to approach this migration.
“Is it possible to store all the asset renditions in their own dedicated S3 bucket?” This is a question I get from clients a lot and has a very simple solution, but the answer is somehow hidden in Nuxeo’s (very complex but awesome!) documentation.
In this blog I’m referring specifically to a Nuxeo instance configured to store the binaries in AWS S3 but the main idea will still apply, no matter where you store your binaries.
AWS recently announced AWS Fargate, a service to run containers without managing servers or clusters. If you were not asleep for the past years, you probably noticed that Docker had changed the way developers are working and the way some production servers are run.
But things are still very complicated in real life, and even if you run only containers, you still have to manage the underlying infrastructure. And I bet you already know that this is not a trivial task!
Okta is a popular choice for identity management in the cloud these days, which is why we wanted to integrate its capabilities with the Nuxeo Content Services Platform. Configuring the Nuxeo Platform to use Okta for both authentication and user provisioning is extremely easy!
We empower you to build your solution using one the best content services platform in the world. With 15 combined years of hands-on Nuxeo experience we know what it takes to deliver a successful project.
