Configuring an Alfresco One Security Provider

The Coveo Alfresco One connector supports the Alfresco One security model. When you want users searching for Alfresco One items in a Coveo search interface to only see the items to which they have access in Alfresco One, the connector needs a security provider to be able to index the permissions for each indexed item.

Note: You can get familiar with how Coveo components deal with permissions on documents both at indexing and query time (see Security) .

To configure an Alfresco One security provider

  1. On the Coveo server, access the Administration Tool (see Opening the Administration Tool).

  2. Select Configuration > Security.

  3. In the navigation panel on the left, click Security Providers.

  4. In the Security Providers page, click Add to create a new security provider.

  5. In the Modify Security Provider page:

    1. Configure the following required parameters:


      Choose a meaningful name to identify the security provider.

      Example: Alfresco One Security Provider

      Security Provider Type

      In the drop-down list, select Alfresco One (x64).

      User Identity

      Select the Alfresco One user identity that you created previously (see Alfresco One Connector Deployment Overview).

    2. Configure the following required parameters:

      Alfresco URL

      The URL of your Alfresco One content repository server.

      Example: https://MyAlfrescoOneServer:[port]/share

      Note: You will enter the same value when configuring the source (see Configuring and Indexing an Alfresco One Source).

      Alfresco CMIS 1.0 API URL

      The URL of the CMIS 1.0 Atom endpoint of the Alfresco One instance. Leave blank to use the default one.

      Example: http://MyAlfrescoOneServer:[port]/api/[RepositoryName]/cmis/versions/1.0/atom

      Alfresco REST API URL

      The URL of the REST API Endpoint of the Alfresco One Instance. Leave blank to use default one which is your Alfresco One repository server URL followed by alfresco/service/cmis.

      Example: https://MyAlfrescoOneServer:[port]/alfresco/service/cmis

      Security Provider

      Select the security provider that you selected or created to allow this security provider to resolve and expand the groups (see Alfresco One Connector Deployment Overview).

      Note: The Alfresco security provider can be chained with either an Active Directory or an Email security provider.

    3. Leave the Allow Complex Identities cleared as it does not apply to this type of security provider.

    4. Click Apply Changes.
