Configuring forms

Forms can be configured through the share-config-custom.xml file.

The default forms configuration is specified in the ./tomcat/webapps/share/WEB-INF/classes/alfresco/share-form-config.xml file. This file contains all the default controls and constraint handlers for the content model and the form configuration for the cm:content and cm:folder types. This file also contains an example of configuring the cm:content type.

Note: You should apply all your forms customizations to a custom configuration file. To configure forms for the Share application, use the custom configuration file named share-config-custom.xml.

There are a number of files involved in form configuration, but generally you should add your configurations to a custom configuration file. The default configuration files are listed here so that you can see the range of configurations available:

File Description
form-config.xml Default form configuration file
share-form-config.xml Default forms for content and folder creation, edit and search
share-datalist-form-config.xml Forms for the built-in datalists
share-workflow-form-config.xml Core workflow forms and built-in workflows
Avoid editing the default configuration files directly.
  1. Open the ./tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/<web-extension>/share-config-custom.xml file.
  2. Modify the forms configuration settings using the XML configuration syntax.
