Content repository services

Content repository services are the fundamental services for working with content in Alfresco. Content repository services are written in Java.

Content repository services are built on the storage and query engines. As with the engines, the same infrastructure is shared. The concept of users and groups is introduced into these services, such as recording the author of content, who has content locked or access to content. Implementation of the standards-defined services is packaged into the Alfresco content repository.

Out-of-the-box content repository services provide capabilities to:

  • Organize and manage content
  • Control versions
  • Record changes and updates
  • Enforce security
  • Model content types
  • Search for information in the repository
