Alfresco Transform Service 1.0

The Transform Service provides a secure, scalable, reliable, and extensible mechanism for converting files from their current format into other formats. The functional capabilities are similar to those provided inside the repository, with a few key differences.

The key capabilities of the Transform Service include the ability to:

  • Scale the transformation capabilities independently of the content repository.
  • Make use of the exposed transformation capabilities for all subsystems of the repository.
  • Provide a greater level of reliability and fault tolerance.

Important: The Transform Service is deployed as part of the Alfresco Content Services deployment. See What’s deployed in Content Services for the list of components.

Important: The Transform Service is only available with containerized deployments, and not when Content Services is installed using a distribution zip.
