Install into Tomcat

To install Alfresco Digital Workspace into Tomcat, you first need to install Alfresco Content Services 6.2 or above using the distribution zip. See Installing using distribution zip for more information.

  1. Log in to the Support Portal.

  2. Go to the Downloads area and select Alfresco Digital Workspace.

  3. Download alfresco-digital-workspace-x.x.x.war for the required version.

    alfresco-digital-workspace-x.x.x.war is the file name followed by the version of Alfresco Digital Workspace, for example alfresco-digital-workspace-1.5.0.war.

  4. On the server that will host Alfresco Digital Workspace move the alfresco-digital-workspace-x.x.x.war file to the <TOMCAT_HOME>/webapps folder.

    Note: Tomcat extracts the files automatically.

  5. Browse the extracted alfresco-digital-workspace-x.x.x directory and open the app.config.json file in a text editor.

  6. Edit the app.config.json file and change the ecmHost property to be the same as your Alfresco Content Services server and allocated port. For example:


  7. Also in the app.config.json file, change the baseShareUrl property to be the same as your Alfresco Digital Workspace server and allocated port. For example:

    http://<appservername>:port/alfresco-digital-workspace-x.x.x (alfresco-digital-workspace-x.x.x being the name of the WAR file)

    Note: If Quickshare is disabled in Alfresco Content Services ignore this step.

    To disable Quickshare, set system.quickshare.enabled=false in the \tomcat\shared\classes\ file.

    For more information, see Using the file.

  8. Save the file.

  9. Open your browser and access Alfresco Digital Workspace:
