I’m not attending the event being held in Toronto, but I found through twitter this nice url:

http://hol-host05.eastus.cloudapp.azure.com:81/d2-unity-web/ui/app.html -> This is the new D2 UI (and yes, you can use the you-know-which-default-user(s) to log in and check it by yourself) deployed on Azure (which is weird, considering Opentext has its own cloud…)

But, the really funny thing here, are these urls:

http://hol-host05.eastus.cloudapp.azure.com:81/da -> da 7.3 (but with CS 16.4/SQL Server)

http://hol-host05.eastus.cloudapp.azure.com:81/D2 -> hello old D2 vulnerabilities 🙂

http://hol-host05.eastus.cloudapp.azure.com:81/d2-unity-web/repositories -> and you can log in with you-know-which-default-user(s), and you have a nice DQL tool provided by REST services 🙂

dm_world magic

Interesting observation: the more I learn Documentum the more I realize that it is a piece of dog crap. Recently I demonstrated possibility to create world-writable ACL by setting the value of owner_name to ‘dm_world’, this fact have given me idea that the same trick will work for sysobjects (i.e. create world-readable sysobject regardless assigned ACL), moreover SQLs generated by Content Server look very promising:

API> ?,c,select count(*) from dm_folder
(1 row affected)


select all count(*) ... ( dm_folder.owner_name in ('test','dm_world')) ...


API> create,c,dm_document
API> set,c,l,owner_name
SET> dm_world
API> save,c,l
[DM_SYSOBJECT_E_CANT_FIND_USER]error:  "The user 'dm_world' specified does not exist."

API> fetch,c,0b024be9800a8e60

Software company vs Apache License

Pro Documentum

A month ago I got impressed how software company manages knowledge: as all we know when Documentum was under EMC wing there were two public forums: Documentum Support Forum and Documentum Developer Forum – both are inaccessible for now because OpenText had partially moved their content to OpenText community forum and restricted access to customers only – here I have now idea why do they think that ECN forums weren’t public:

At ECD, the two forums you mentioned were separated because one was an open forum and the other (Dev) was closed and available to developers only. Here, we do not have the distinction of open and closed forums within our product membership.

Today I got another interesting case: it seems that OpenText decided to rebrand Documentum products but doing it in extremely weird manner, for example:
