Building smart spaces

Define rules within a space to automatically manage the content.

One of the key benefits of Alfresco is the ability to define rules that affect content within a space. These rules can be used to provide creative solutions to automation and management of content. Rules are applied when content moves in or out of a space and may also apply to content directly in the space or in sub spaces.

A rule is made up of three main elements:

  • The conditions on the content for the rule to match

  • The actions that are performed on the content

  • The type of rule it is

Any number of conditions and actions may be defined in a rule.
