Configuring metadata extraction

Metadata extraction automatically extracts metadata information from inbound and/or updated content and updates the corresponding nodes properties with the metadata values.

Metadata extractors offer server-side extraction of values from added or updated content.
  1. Download the content-services-context.xml file.
  2. Copy the file to <extension> and save it with the name custom-repository-context.xml.

    This file contains definitions of the default set of extractors.

  3. Declare a new extractor in the <extension>/custom-repository-context.xml file.

    The following example shows a new extractor written in class com.company.MyExtracter:

    <bean id="com.company.MyExtracter" class="com.company.MyExtracter" parent="baseMetadataExtracter" />

  4. Save the file and then restart the Alfresco Content Services server.
