Install using Helm

Use this information to deploy Community Edition using Helm charts by running a Kubernetes cluster on Amazon’s EKS (Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes). This is a deployment template which can be used as the basis for your specific deployment needs.

The Helm charts are provided as a reference that can be used to build deployments in Amazon Web Services (AWS). The Helm charts are undergoing continual development and improvement and should not be used “as-is” for a production deployment. If you’re a System administrator, ensure that data persistence, backups, log storage, and other system-level functions have been configured to meet your needs.


  • Read the Alfresco/acs-deployment project README for the prerequisites.
  • Read the main Helm README page.
  • You must be proficient in AWS and Kubernetes.

Here’s a summary of the steps required for the EKS deployment:

  1. Set up an EKS cluster on AWS.
  2. Prepare the cluster for Community Edition, including creating a hosted zone in Route 53, and an Elastic File System (EFS) for storage.
  3. Deploy Community Edition on the Kubernetes cluster, including creating a namespace.
  4. Check the status of your deployment.

See the detailed project documentation in GitHub: Deploying Helm charts on AWS EKS

In this project, you can use the Helm charts following the documentation for standard installations.

Any customization of your environment, including major configuration changes, should be done inside a Docker image, resulting in the creation of a new image with a new tag. This approach allows changes to be tracked in the source code (i.e. Dockerfile) and rolling updates to the deployment in the Kubernetes cluster. See the Customization Guidelines for more.
