Hi Alfresco Community,

I did a migration Alfresco Community from 4.2.f to 5.0.a yesterday.
New wiki and search features in Share are very cool.
It runs on a Debian stable 7.1 with a backported Tomcat7, Oracle JVM 1.7.0_10 and MySQL 5.5.

I have 2 problems with my new Alfresco Share instance.

1/ Blank page for Calendar in Share
When I go in calendar page in all my sites, I can see header (New event, Today, Week, Month) and left  panel (mini calendar showing month days), but the center panel is blank. I cant see the calendar panel with events. I can create new event, but it does not appear, panel is still blank.

Some users described same problem in Alfresco English forum : https://forums.alfresco.com/forum/installation-upgrades-configuration-integration/installation-upgrades/update-alfresco-42c-500


2/ Specific roles in Share
In my Alfresco 4.2 instance, i created some roles with method explain here : https://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Custom_Permissions_in_Share
In my precedent Alfresco migration, i could recreate roles each time. But this time, files \tomcat\webapps\alfresco\WEB-INF\classes\alfresco\model\sitePermissionDefinitions.xml and others do not exist anymore. I searched on filesystem but no file contains same informations (permission definition for a role).

I read that it is possible to define groups in Share interface and play with groups (not with roles). In Share administration panel and Alfreso administration panel, Groups administration, I can see my specific groups. I added these specific groups to the site group in Share. But users in these groups doesnt appear as site users. I can't find where I can define permission of my new group (in Alfresco 4.2, I defined that my new groups have collaborator permissions in file sitePermissionDefinitions.xml).

I tried to add my groups in site_mySite_SiteContributor and users in my groups appear as site member, but with a Contributor role (not with role I had defined with Permission in Alfresco 4.2). I can define access on my repository in order to permit my groups to access specifics resources. So I have same behavior as Alfresco 4.2, only difference is that in user list in Dashboard of my site, users are Contributor, not my role I created in Alfresco 4.2. 


Thanks for reading !!
