 Description   

Hi,
I followed the following tutorials to disable preview activity in share dashlets,
but nothing changes. I'll get the document previewed activity but the filter is not enabled.

In Germany this is an major security issue. In Germany it is not allowed to monitor user actions in this detailed way.

For an alternate solution:
We fixed this in the repository, see the referenced commits in https://github.com/loftuxab/alfresco-community-loftux/issues/17.
This was done before Kevin posted about the other way to do that, so haven't tested that.

Thanks for the alternate solution Peter - But I can't find those files in my installation

I think this is the problem:

"Hi, I tried to turn off the share activity stream for download and preview events, but it is necessary for each site and user to click on the filter (change dashlet filter settings), to the settings take effect. The same must be done for each newly created site."

So the config is working, but does not take effect until a change is made to the filter on new and existing sites. - Which to be honest makes it pretty useless.

I think Peter's solution is better to be honest.

I will see if we can get that implemented against the next release.

Verified against Alfresco Enterprise v5.1.0, (r106401-b172), schema 9005.
New preview / download activities are not displayed, but previews and downloads made before adding activities.post.ignored-types=org.alfresco.documentlibrary.file-previewed,org.alfresco.documentlibrary.file-downloaded in repository.properties are still displayed in activities.
