A replication job specifies the content to be replicated; the day and time the job is to be performed; and the target location for the replicated content.
The job is controlled by the Replication Service, and it calls the Transfer Service, which allows folders and content to be automatically copied between Alfresco repositories. A replication job can be run according to a schedule or on-demand.
By default, any replicated content is read-only in the target repository. This ensures the integrity of the content is not compromised by uncontrolled updates.
