2. Configuring claims management

To configure the claims framework, add the sample template to the Data Dictionary and enable the claims aspect.
The example data model that you imported in the previous task contains the clex:claimFolder aspect. This aspect defines the metadata for a claim, and also marks a folder as being used to contain claim information. Make sure that you have downloaded the Smart Folders tutorial files before proceeding with this task.
  1. Stop Alfresco, and edit your alfresco-global.properties file to specify the following settings:

    smart.folders.enabled=true
    smart.folders.config.type.templates.qname.filter=clex:claimFolder
    The smart.folders.config.type.templates.qname.filter property specifies the custom type or aspect of the contents of the Smart Folder Template.
  2. Restart Alfresco.
  3. Browse to smartfolders-master/tutorials in your Downloads directory, and locate the clex_claimFolder.json file.

    This is the Smart Folder Template.

    This file matches the clex:claimFolder aspect, so that any folder type with the clex:claimFolder aspect applied to it should use the clex_claimFolder.json Smart Folder Template for its folder structure.

    Adding this aspect and Smart Folder Template means that you are using Type-based Smart Folders.

  4. In Alfresco, click Repository then Data Dictionary, and copy clex_claimFolder.json into the Smart Folder Templates folder.

    You'll see the default smartFoldersExample.json Smart Folder Template is already in this folder.

    Note: You need system administrator rights to upload this file.
You are now ready to create a new claim.
