Need to evaluate acs7 but wanted to install using distribution package

Jump to solution

Hi 

we need to evaluate the acs 7 community as we are planning to migrate to 7 from acs 5 community. I went through documentation for installation using distribution package, documentation is not clear and i am getting confused with steps. 
Also with previous versions we used to setup imagemagic, libreoffice etc but with acs 7 this option is not there. How to setup transformations?

any pointers will be helpful

There should not be much different in the installation steps done via distribution package for acs7 as well. Checkout this post : https://hub.alfresco.com/t5/news-announcements/installing-alfresco-community-6-2-without-docker-or-a...

to see step by step process to setup acs using distribution package. It is for ACS6.2.0-ga but overall steps would be same.

Regarding the transformation setup, in earlier version you had option to use legacy transformation setup. It is now completely removed from ACS7 and you would have to use the new transformation service which is based on spring boot and configure the URLs in global properties file. It uses activemq. 

For more details visit:

You could run this app locally or on your development server and configure the urls in global propeties file and test the functionalities:

Alternatively you could run these docker images and configure the URLs in alfresco-global.properties file:

https://github.com/Alfresco/acs-deployment/blob/master/docker-compose/community-docker-compose.yml#L...

Propeties would look something like:

Hi,

For transformations you have to run the alfresco-transform-core-aio-boot-2.3.10.jar as a service in your machine and start the service.

Below were the changes you need to do update in global properties.

#transform.service.enabled=false
#local.transform.service.enabled=false
#legacy.transform.service.enabled=true

localTransform.core-aio.url=http://localhost:8090/

Thanks @abhinavmishra14 and @arjunmony for help

I was able to setup using the blogpost but transformation service setup kept me confused and i was about to ask the question on this forum, but @arjunmony you beat me Smiley Happy, you answered the question before i could ask.

i am able to run local services now with the jar file
