Disabling the auto-versioning feature

Use this information to disable auto-versioning for all versionable content in the repository.

The auto-versioning feature is controlled with the version.store.enableAutoVersioning property, which is set to true by default.
  1. Open the alfresco-global.properties file.
  2. Add the following property:

    version.store.enableAutoVersioning=false

    When this property is set to false, the VersionableAspect will not respond to any events; even if the aspect is present, it will not create versions.

    Note: The behavior of versioning may also be affected by the version.store.enableAutoVersionOnUpdateProps property, which is set to false by default. This means that the version history is not incremented when changing properties in Edit Properties in Share. If you have set version.store.enableAutoVersionOnUpdateProps=true it will enable versioning when properties are changed.
  3. Save the global properties file.
  4. Restart the Alfresco Community Edition server.
