Configuration overview

Alfresco Community Edition is preconfigured with a set of system configuration parameters.

Many of the system configuration parameters are completely exposed as properties, which you can extend or override either in the alfresco-global.properties file or by using Admin Tools in Share.

The global properties file is used to detect the extended properties. You can use the global properties to set all your property settings; whenever you make a change, you must restart the server to apply those changes.

Admin Tools in Alfresco Share is an alternative way of making changes to some configurations.

Note: For advanced configuration, you can also extend or override the Spring bean definitions that control Java classes. Add or copy a Spring bean file named *-context.xml to the <extension> directory, or <web-extension> directory to extend Share. For examples of the Spring bean extensions, download the sample extension files.
