When you are working with transformations, it is important to understand how file types map to one another and the transformation formats that each file type supports.
Setting up Alfresco authentication and security
The first time you access a vanilla Alfresco installation through Alfresco Explorer, Alfresco identifies you as a ‘guest’ user. You can identify yourself as another user by clicking the Login link and entering a new user name and password in the Login window. If you log in with the credentials of a user with administrator privileges (Alfresco uses admin as the default user name and password), you can use the Administration Console to create additional users and assign them passwords.
Setting up clustering
This section describes how to implement multiple Alfresco instances in a clustered environment.
This section provides an overview on the Solr server and describes how to configure it.
Setting up Enterprise to Cloud Sync
The Enterprise to Cloud Sync feature is available in Alfresco. This section describes how to configure Enterprise to Cloud Sync and includes solutions for troubleshooting issues.
Creating and managing workflows
Alfresco comes with a set of predefined workflow definitions which can be used right out of the box. For more complex requirements, you can also create, deploy, and manage your own Activiti workflows.
Backing up and restoring
This section describes the process for backing up the Alfresco content repository only. It assumes that components other than the data residing in Alfresco (operating system, database, JDK, application server, Alfresco binaries, and configuration, etc.) are being backed up independently.
Using the Bulk Import tool
The Bulk Import tool provides a mechanism for bulk importing existing content into a repository from the Alfresco server's filesystem.
Managing content stores
A content store provides low-level access to stored binaries ensuring that, for every write, a new binary storage location is made available. This section gives an overview on the content stores, their types, and configuration details with examples.
This section describes how to perform various migration procedures for Alfresco servers and databases.
Setting up Alfresco multi-tenancyAlfresco supports a single-instance, single-tenant (ST) environment where each tenant (for example, customer, company, or organization) runs a single instance that is installed on one server or across a cluster of servers.
Configuring the File System Transfer Receiver
The File System Transfer Receiver transfers folders and content from an Alfresco core repository (the DM) to configured targets using the Transfer Service, for example, a remote file system.
Auditing AlfrescoAlfresco provides the ability to audit activity. This section describes how Alfresco generates, stores, and retrieves auditing information.
Administering Explorer from the Administration Console
The Administration Console enables Alfresco administrators to create and manage users and groups, manage categories, import and export spaces and content, and perform other administrative tasks from within Alfresco Explorer.
