Configuring metadata extraction

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

Metadata extractors offer server-side extraction of values from added or updated content. Definitions of the default set of extractors are in the <configRoot>/classes/alfresco/content-services-context.xml file.
Declare a new extractor in <extension>/custom-repository-context.xml.
