Override the global properties in Alfresco using alfresco-global.properties file

Jump to solution

Hi,

  I need to change the global properties like changing the root node,store path or database properties.But I am not able to find the alfresco-global.properties file in the application, so I searched for this file on the internet and I found it and I made some changes in that file and inserted in the tomcat -> webapp location but it couldn't override the properties.

    I would like to know where exactly I need to keep alfresco-global.properties file so I can override the properties in the tomcat instance. I was looking for the shared/classes folder in tomcat but couldn't found because I read somewhere that you need to keep this file in shared folder. I am using Alfresco 5. If someone have any idea about this please let me know.

Thanks.

Hi:

alfresco-global.properties is placed at:

/opt/alfresco52f/tomcat/shared/classes/

In a default installation, you should have a initial sample configuration in this place.

In the Alfresco repository application, under WEB-INF and inside a jar file, there exists a file called repository.properties that is overriden by alfresco-global.properties (and can be used for properties reference) :

$ cd /opt/alfresco52f/tomcat/webapps/alfresco
$ grep -r repository.properties *
Coincidencia en el archivo binario WEB-INF/lib/alfresco-repository-5.2.f.jar

Additionally, you can use OOTB Support Tools addon (System Properties page) for the reference of all the configurable properties.

Hope this helps.

Regards.

By the way, if you use Enterprise Edition, a JMX Dump contains a similar set of persisted properties in database.
