Configuring Share to remove persistent cookies

Use this information to turn off cookies that store a user name after a session expires.

By default, a cookie is stored that allows you to repopulate the user name after a user logs out, or the session expires. Follow these instructions if you do not want this user name stored.

  1. Open the following file:

    tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/web-extension/share-config-custom.xml

  2. Set the enableCookie property to false.

    <config evaluator="string-compare" condition="Cookie" replace="true">
      <cookie>
           <enableCookie>false</enableCookie>
      </cookie>
    </config>
    
    and disable the login cookie:
    <config evaluator="string-compare" condition="WebFramework">
      <web-framework>
          <defaults>
             <login-cookies-enabled>false</login-cookies-enabled>
          </defaults>
      </web-framework>
    </config>
  3. Save the edited file.
  4. Restart Alfresco.
