Alfresco Connector Deployment Overview

The following procedure outlines the steps needed to deploy the Alfresco connector. The steps indicate the order in which you must perform configuration tasks on both the CES and Alfresco systems.

  1. Validate that your environment meets the requirements (see Alfresco Connector Requirements).

  2. In the Alfresco system, select or create the crawling account.

    The connector needs an Alfresco account with which it can crawl all the Alfresco content that you wish to index (see Selecting an Alfresco Full Read Account).

  3. On the Coveo server, in the Coveo Administration Tool:

    1. Configure the user identity

      You must assign the selected Alfresco full-read account to a Coveo user identity (see Selecting an Alfresco Full Read Account).

    2. Configure and index the Alfresco source

      The connector needs to know details about the Alfresco system to be able to index its content (see Configuring and Indexing an Alfresco Source).

    3. Optionally, modify hidden source parameters

      Once your Alfresco source is up and running, if you encounter time out or performance issues, consider modifying some hidden source parameters to try resolving the issues (see Modifying Hidden Alfresco Source Parameters).

    4. Optionally, customize the mapping file to fine-tune indexed content

      Once your Alfresco source is up and running, you can customize the connector mapping file to fine-tune the indexed content or to index other default entities in your Alfresco system (see Creating a Custom Alfresco Mapping File).
