Creating a new transfer target for content replication

The transfer service stores files that control and monitor the operation of the transfer service in the Transfers space in the Data Dictionary.

The Transfer Target Groups space contains the transfer target definitions that specify where transfers go to. There is a group level below the folder which is used to classify different sets of transfer targets. There is only a single group called Default Group.

You can add transfer targets by creating a new transfers folder.

  1. Create a folder in Company Home > Data Dictionary > Transfers > Transfer Target Groups > Default Group.
  2. A rule defined on the Default Group folder specializes the type of any folder created within it.

    The type is set to trx:transferTarget, which you can then complete through the user interface. The new node contains the properties you can fill in through the user interface to set up your target.

  3. Create a new folder within the Default Group folder.

    You will be prompted to specify the name, title, and description of the new folder.

    1. In the New Folder window, specify the name, title, and description of the new folder.
  4. Click Edit Properties.
  5. Specify the Endpoint Host, Endpoint Port, Username and Password, and click Enabled and Save.

    For example; Endpoint host: localhost, Endpoint port: 9080, Username: admin, Password: admin

  6. Create a replication job to test the target setup.
    1. In Alfresco Share, click More > Replication Jobs from the menu.
    2. Click Create Job.
    3. Specify properties for Name, Payload Select, Transfer Target Select and click Enabled.

      Transfer Target Select must be the folder that you created in step 3.

    4. Click Run.
    5. Refresh the screen after a few minutes to see a status change.
  7. Verify the replication job.

    Log in to Alfresco Share on the target repository, select a transferred file and click Open in Source Repository to check that content has been replicated.
