minimal alfresco distribution

Hi everyone,
I started alfresco 6.2 via docker. It's possible to make a minimum distribution excluding Solr, ActiveMQ, all transformers, and Share? What are the properties to configure in the content service to exclude all it can be excluded?

Re: minimal alfresco distribution

Here is one with minimum but required configuration:

# Using version 2 as 3 does not support resource constraint options (cpu_*, mem_* limits) for non swarm mode in Compose
version: "2"

services:
    alfresco:
        image: alfresco/alfresco-content-repository-community:6.2.1-A8
        mem_limit: 1500m
        environment:

        ports:
            - 8080:8080

        ports:

If you are using Postgresql that is running on different host (that is open for connections) then you can remove that from docker compose and update the properties accordingly e.g.:

# Using version 2 as 3 does not support resource constraint options (cpu_*, mem_* limits) for non swarm mode in Compose
version: "2"

services:
    alfresco:
        image: alfresco/alfresco-content-repository-community:6.2.1-A8
        mem_limit: 1500m
        environment:
            JAVA_OPTS: "

                -Ddb.username=alfresco

                -Ddb.url=jdbc:postgresql://192.168.2.32:5432/alfresco
                -Dsolr.host=solr6

                -Dsolr.secureComms=none

                -Dtransform.service.enabled=false
                -Dlocal.transform.service.enabled=false
                -Dlegacy.transform.service.enabled=false
                -Xms1500m -Xmx1500m
                "
                
        ports:
            - 8080:8080
            
     solr6:
        image: alfresco/alfresco-search-services:2.0.1
        mem_limit: 2g
        environment:
            #Solr needs to know how to register itself with Alfresco
            - SOLR_ALFRESCO_HOST=alfresco
            - SOLR_ALFRESCO_PORT=8080
            #Alfresco needs to know how to call solr
            - SOLR_SOLR_HOST=solr6
            - SOLR_SOLR_PORT=8983
            #Create the default alfresco and archive cores
            - SOLR_CREATE_ALFRESCO_DEFAULTS=alfresco,archive
            #HTTP by default
            - ALFRESCO_SECURE_COMMS=none
            - "SOLR_JAVA_MEM=-Xms2g -Xmx2g"
        ports:
            - 8083:8983 #Browser port

Similarly you can even remove solr6 service from docker compose if you have an instance running on a different host (that is open for connections), make sure to update the properties accordingly.

Re: minimal alfresco distribution

Part2-

Please note that transformations won't work after removing AMQ and tranformation services.

Re: minimal alfresco distribution

Thank you. Can we put share inside the alfresco container?

Yes, you can do it. You need to make sure that properties on share and alfresco services are appropriate in order for them to connect to each other.
