Configuring SharePoint Protocol Support

This information describes how to configure the SharePoint Protocol Support properties to complete the set up process.
Ensure that you have applied the SharePoint Protocol Support AMP.
The SharePoint Protocol Support functionality uses the properties in the default configuration file called vti.properties in <TOMCAT_HOME>/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/classes/alfresco/module/org.alfresco.module.vti/context. The properties have a format of vti.share.*.

These properties do not need to be changed as they point to specific pages in Share. However, if, for example, you wish to run the repository and Share on different machine, you may need to modify the vti.server.* properties. Set your custom properties and overrides in the alfresco-global.properties file.

  1. Open the alfresco-global.properties file.
  2. The following table describes the properties that you can add.

    Property Description
    vti.server.port This property configures the port on which the SharePoint server listens. This is the port for the vti embedded server. The default port number is 7070. Use this port in File Open/Save windows and for Document Workspace creation.
    vti.server.external.host=${localname} vti.server.external.port=${vti.server.port} These values are used by Share to generate the Edit Online link, which opens the document using the SharePoint module. These parameters are used by vti-server.get web script. Share uses this script to determine vti host and port.
    vti.server.url.path.prefix=/alfresco This property sets the context deployment path for the SharePoint Protocol, with a default of /alfresco (the default path for the Alfresco installation). Change this value if you need to use a different context path for the SharePoint Protocol.
    vti.share.siteInBrowser=/page/site/.../dashboard If you click the Open site in browser link in the Shared Workspace panel, the site dashboard will open in a browser. This property generates the browser URL. Dots in this template are replaced with the site shortname.
    vti.share.siteSettings=/page/site/.../customise-site This property generates the Share URL for Change Site Settings.
    vti.share.siteGroupMembership=/page/site/.../site-members This property generates the Share URL for the Site Group Membership page.
    vti.share.userInformation=/page/user/.../profile This property generates the Share URL for the Edit User Information page.
    vti.share.documentLibrary=/page/site/.../documentlibrary This property is not used.
    vti.share.documentDetails=/page/site/.../document-details This property generates the Share URL for the Modify settings for document versions page. This link is in the Version History.
    vti.share.calendar=/page/site/.../calendar This property is used only for Outlook. The SharePoint Protocol Support module generates the Share URL for Outlook Meeting Workspace and places this link to mail template.

    Note: The value for the context path of the Alfresco repository being used is specified using the sysAdmin subsystem property alfresco.context. The default is alfresco.
  3. Save the alfresco-global.properties file.
  4. Restart your Alfresco server.
The Microsoft SharePoint Protocol Support functionality is installed and configured.
