Use this information to manage authentication in Alfresco Community Edition, and to configure keystores
for repository encryption.
The first time you access a clean Alfresco Community Edition
installation, you can
identify yourself by entering a new user name and password in the Sign in screen. If you sign
in with the credentials of a user with administrator privileges, you can create additional
users and assign them passwords. In this out-of-the-box set up, you can manage the user base
and their passwords manually.
Note: Choose a strong, unique password for your admin account,
and consider changing it regularly.
From here, there are a number of common customizations you might want
to make to scale up to the needs of a larger enterprise. For example, you
might want to:
- Enable automatic sign-on using operating system credentials or a Single Sign-On (SSO)
server to remove the need for a Sign in screen
- Delegate authentication responsibility to a central directory server to remove the need to
set up users manually
- Protect your repository and Solr communications using encryption
