Install using the distribution ZIP

Governance Services is installed by applying two AMP files to an existing Alfresco Content Services installation.

The Governance Services distribution zip file contains the following files:

alfresco-governance-services-enterprise-repo-11.153.amp Contains Governance Services functionality that’s applied to an existing Alfresco Content Services installation.
alfresco-governance-services-enterprise-share-11.77.amp Contains Governance Services functionality that’s applied to an existing Alfresco Share installation.

Note: Install the AMPs manually using the Module Management Tool (MMT), rather than using the apply_amps tool.

  1. Browse to the Alfresco Nexus repository and download alfresco-governance-services-enterprise-distribution-7.1.0.zip, which contains the following files:

  2. Stop the Alfresco Content Services server.

  3. Delete the tomcat\webapps\alfresco and tomcat\webapps\share folders in the Alfresco Content Services installation directory.

    Deleting these directories forces Tomcat to read the edited WAR files when Alfresco Content Services is restarted.

    Note: If you are using non-Windows systems, such as Mac OS X and Linux, you’ll need to replace the backslashes by forward slashes in directory paths.

  4. Copy the AMP files to the Alfresco amps and amps_share directories.

    • Copy the alfresco-governance-services-enterprise-repo-11.153.amp file to the Alfresco amps directory.
    • Copy the alfresco-governance-services-enterprise-share-11.77.amp file to the Alfresco amps_share directory.
  5. Change into the root of the Alfresco Content Services installation directory. Directories specified in the following procedures are relative to this directory.

  6. Run the following commands to install the AMP files:

     java -jar bin\alfresco-mmt.jar install amps\alfresco-governance-services-enterprise-repo-11.153.amp tomcat\webapps\alfresco.war
    
     java -jar bin\alfresco-mmt.jar install amps_share\alfresco-governance-services-enterprise-share-11.77.amp tomcat\webapps\share.war
    
  7. Start the Alfresco Content Services server.

  8. Check the AMP files have been installed successfully, using these commands:

     java -jar bin\alfresco-mmt.jar list tomcat\webapps\alfresco.war
    

    and

     java -jar bin\alfresco-mmt.jar list tomcat\webapps\share.war
    
  9. Start Share by browsing to:

    http://<your-server-name>:<port number>/share

    Note: When you install Governance Services the Security Controls features are installed at the same time.

Final step before you can start with Records Management is to create the Records Management site.
