Thanks to letsencrypt.org I have installed ssl certificate on most of my sites. However after installing the certificate we also need to ensure that the traffic coming to http is redirected to https. Use the following code in your vhost.conf file or where your apache configuration for the site is stored. RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME} =staging.ravisagar.in [OR] RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME} =www.staging.ravisagar.in RewriteRule ^ https://%{SERVER_NAME}%{REQUEST_URI} [END,NE,R=permanent]

Today I was trying to install simplenews module on my site but I faced some errors related to entity updates after install it. I found these 2 commands to fix that. First to check what updates are needed use this command. drush updatedb:status --entity-updates To actually fix it use the following drush entity:updates Now it should fix the problem. Enjoy :)

Jira Podcast
I checked my Spotify podcasters dashboard where I noticed a summary of my 2019. I started (restarted) podcasting earlier this year and made 18 episodes. I am quite happy with the outcome.

Google Docs Thumbnail
I have made literally hundreds of videos in 2019. I wrote a blog about the tools I use to make these videos and also shared my workflow. The quality of my videos is questionable though and definitely not great but that was my intention from the beginning that I wanted to make as many videos as I can without worrying about the quality. For close to 7-8 months I think I made a video everyday, which is quite good achievement I think :) Honestly it was not difficult, just share whatever you know already but making a video requires some effort. First you have to figure out how to record yourself, the audio, screen and then you have to edit everything together. I have shared details in my other blog about all the tools but one thing which I figured out is the importance of a thumbnail,…

One of the best thing I like doing is nothing at all. When you wake up in the morning and don't worry about anything is one of my favourite feeling. People say that travelling is important to take a break for routine and rest but for some reason I find it quite difficult to relax when I am travelling. May be it is just me and I am not used to travelling a lot anymore. For the past few days I am doing nothing. Literally nothing, apart from making videos for Youtube and working on my site ravisagar.in. Every year I make it a point to upgrade this site or do some work on it. I don't change the theme really but I work on upgrade the Drupal version. This time as well I did the same and made some changes to the site and learnt few more things on Drupal 8. I always promise myself to be active on…

In Jira you can create multiple custom fields of various types where you want to store crucial information related to you project. To avoid people from skipping those fields you can use a field permission scheme in Jira, its main job is to make a field required or hidden in the project. Now making a field required makes sense but why would you hide a field using field permission scheme? Why can't we just not add the field? The answer is very simple - reusing screens. Just like any other configuration in Jira, the screens can also be reused by various projects. Now as a good practice there should have been standards defined in your Jira instance for similar type of projects. When 2 or more projects are using the same screen with same set of custom fields then hiding few specific fields…

I have been creating lot of videos on ScriptRunner for Jira, which is probably one of the most powerful add-on that organisations use to make the best out of their Jira instance. If you are a Jira Administrator than you cannot at any cost avoid it. The problem is that many people think that learning ScriptRunner for Jira is difficult, in fact it is not at all difficult. Depending upon how much programming experience you already have you can do different things. Even if you have very little programming experience I feel you can still learn it. Using ScriptRunner you won't be developing full fledged applications within Jira (although you can) but most often you will be solving problems big or small to make Jira work for you and that is really important because you cannot install add-on for…

I have to admit that I am little late in upgrading to Jira 8. I didn't really have specific need for upgrading but I think now is the right time. I will try to upgrade this weekend. Most of the scripts that I have should work at least the basic ones but it is still worth checking them. Also there are few new features that I am looking for to.

I just realised that I have hundreds of video tutorials on Jira and Atlassian tools. You can find most of my videos on this site if you click on the video link or you can go to my YouTube channel. I don't feel I have so many videos but it feels good and I will continue making more.
