Configuring metadata extraction

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

Metadata extractors provide the mechanism for server-side extraction of values from added or updated content. Definitions for the default extractors are located in the <configRoot>/alfresco/content-services-context.xml file.

For more information on the extractors, see the Javadocs for the org.alfresco.repo.content.metadata package.

Also, see the sample configurations in the following files:

  • <extension-samples>/alfresco/extension/custom-metadata-extrators-context.xml.sample
  • <extension-samples>/alfresco/extension/wcm-xml-metadata-extracter-context.xml.sample.
