Publish to Alfresco

This step enables you to write a document or all documents uploaded in your process to an Alfresco Content Services repository. This can be an Alfresco Content Services on-premise repository, or Alfresco in the Cloud.


A user with administration privileges will need to add accounts for the Alfresco Content Services repositories that you can publish to. An administrator can add repositories on the Tenant page of the Identity Management app. The list of repositories you can publish to is then shown on your Personal Info page. If you click on a repository, an account to access the repository is added for you.

The Publish to Alfresco step dialog contains three tabs that let you fully define the task.

Name and Description are simple text fields that help you and others to identify the task in your task list.
