Configuring the APS Action

This section describes how to install and configure the APS Action. The APS Action is an optional Alfresco Community Edition extension that installs an additional Start Process action in the Folder Rules mechanism. This allows users that use both Content Services and Alfresco Process Services to automatically start an APS Process, when a new document is added to a Content Services folder. Both systems must be installed for the action to work.

For more details on how to use the action see Rule actions.

To set up the APS Action you need to configure your LDAP user database for common use between Content Services and Process Services. If you don't already have one set up you will need to do so before continuing because it allows both systems to sync their user database against a single LDAP server. If you do not synchronize users with the same LDAP user database, the APS Action will not work.

For information on how to configure an LDAP user database for use with Content Services, and Process Services see Configuring LDAP and Configuring the LDAP settings respectively.
