A lot of the customizations that you might want to do to the Share user interface does not require coding. They can be handled by XML configuration and a simple restart of Alfresco Content Services.

Architecture Information Share Architecture.

There is a separate section in the documentation dedicated to Configuring Alfresco Share. This configurations typically goes into the share-config-custom.xml file. The following is an example of stuff that you can configure in this file:

  • Visibility of Aspects and Types (from custom content models)
  • Metadata forms (from custom content model)
  • Workflow task forms
  • Document Library indicators, views, actions, and metadata templates
  • Visibility of workflow process definitions (that is, what workflows can be started)
  • Advanced Search
  • Repository location
  • Sorting fields and labels
  • Web Framework settings
  • Data Lists
  • Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) policy

Note that a lot of the other extension points that require coding also involve configuration, so it is a good idea to read up on the configuration bit before starting any development with the other extension points.
