Default Alfresco Stores

Jump to solution

Hello everyone.

Can somebody (briefly) explain the purpose of each of the 6 default stores?

  1. user/alfresoUserStore
  2. system/system
  3. workspace/lightWeightVersionStore
  4. workspace/version2Store
  5. archive/SpacesStore
  6. workspace/SpacesStore

The only thing I could find was: Alfresco: some useful database queries  

This article explains:

  • 5 - Document was deleted by user and is now in global trashcan
  • 6 - Document is in its active life

Is this information correct? 
What about the other stores?

regards
Muffex

At a high level,

user/alfrescoUserStore  --> Nodes of type usr:user live in this store. Note that nodes of type cm: person is stored in the workspace://SpacesStore

system/system --> All system specific nodes lives in this store, for example: Details related to installed modules.

workspace/lightWeightVersionStore --> Node (content+properties) version history lives in this store including node properties, this store is legacy (Before Alfresco version 3.x) store and still part of the repo it seems. 

workspace/version2Store --> Node (content+properties) version history lives in this store including node properties.

archive/SpacesStore  -->  All the deleted node (content+properties) lives in this store. Note that, its a soft delete and deleted content can be found in trashcan. 

workspace/SpacesStore --> All the wip/live node (content+properties) lives in this store.
