Subsystem categories

Every subsystem has a category and a type.
  • Category is a broad description of the subsystem's function, for example, Authentication.
  • Type is a name for the particular flavor of implementation, where multiple alternative implementations exist, for example, ldap. Where a subsystem has only one implementation, you can use the default type name of default.

The Alfresco-supplied subsystem categories are:

ActivitiesFeed
Handles the activities notifications.
Audit
Handles the audit related functions.
Authentication
Handles all authentication related functions, including:
  • Password-based authentication
  • Single Sign-on (SSO) for WebClient, WebDAV, Web Scripts, and SharePoint Protocol
  • CIFS and FTP authentication
  • User registry export (LDAP only)

The subsystem is chained so that multiple instances of different types can be configured and used together.

OOoDirect
Handles the settings for OpenOffice transformations. With this subsystem, the Alfresco server directly manages OpenOffice.
OOoJodconverter
Handles the JODConverter settings for OpenOffice transformations. With this subsystem, the JODConverter manages OpenOffice, including a pool of separate OpenOffice processes, automatic restart of crashed OpenOffice processes, automatic termination of slow OpenOffice operations, automatic restart of any OpenOffice process after a number of operations.
Synchronization
Performs regular synchronization of local user and group information with the user registry exporters (usually LDAP directories) in the authentication chain.

Handles the properties for the CIFS, FTP, and NFS servers.
email
Handles the outbound and inbound SMTP property settings.
imap
Handles the properties for the IMAP service.
sysAdmin
Handles the properties for server administration.
