We are running Alfresco Community Edition v5.2f on CentOS 7, but have encountered an issue that I could use some help with:
In the Alfresco Share website, I have created a test folder and uploaded a Word document (docx), I then select the document so it appears in the on-screen editor, and then select "Edit in Microsoft Office" under the Document Actions. This generates a security prompt which I then click Yes to, and the Word 2016 application then opens, however the document never actually loads within Word (its just an empty window).
The laptop (client) I am working from is running Windows 10, Office 2016, Chrome web browser.
Alfresco is running out-of-the-box configuration.
Is there any specific configuration needed to get this feature to work? If not, what is the best way to investigate this issue?
I now get a Microsoft Word Security Warning dialog because Alfresco is using a self signed certificate that my machine doesn't trust. I can view the certificate and see it's issued to Alfresco Repository. If I then click Yes to accept the certificate and proceed, I get another Microsoft Word dialog saying:
You need a valid SSL certificate (a self-signed is not the case), and the usual way involves a secured frontend (ex. Apache) configured as a reverse proxy. Besides, if your frontend is on the internet, you may use free Let's encript SSL certificates.
The self-signed certificate that you mention is for Alfresco and SOLR communication, it is not valid for this task.
