Re: upload file

There is no way you can upload files into alfresco without login or without getting access token (alf_ticket). If you allow doing this then it will be risky.

There are several ways you can upload files to alfresco repo:

1- Using share (drag and drop files into a folder, with latest version you can drag and drop folders as well. It will create subfolder within parent folder and upload files). 



2- Using REST API :

Java based implementation example: https://javaworld-abhinav.blogspot.com/2014/09/upload-documents-to-alfresco-using-rest.html

3- Upload using FTP: https://docs.alfresco.com/6.1/concepts/fileserv-ftp-intro.html

4- Upload using webdav, It is ready to use from the moment you install Alfresco. Simply go to http://<hostSmiley Tongueort>/alfresco/webdav. Set up webdav location on windows: https://uvacollab.screenstepslive.com/s/help/m/sitetools/l/611578-how-do-i-set-up-webdav-for-windows...

5- Upload using CIFS: https://docs.alfresco.com/5.2/concepts/fileserv-subsystem-CIFS.html

You can also use this chrome extension to upload files in a folder: https://github.com/abhinavmishra14/alfresco-upload

I am not sure if it is still working with latest versions but refer this project which allows selecting custom metadata, it will give you some idea on implementation: https://github.com/softwareloop/uploader-plus

Re: upload file


this is  my  custom.ftl file wihch is html file and it will calling webscript and load js file into it. (share side)

<#-- JavaScript Dependencies
<@markup id="js">

<#-- Stylesheet Dependencies
<@markup id="css">

<#-- Surf Widget creation
<@markup id="widgets">
<@createWidgets group="dashlets"/>

<@markup id="html">
<#assign id = args.htmlid?html>
<#assign dashboardconfig=config.scoped['Dashboard']['dashboard']>

<div class="dashlet">
<div class="title">Custom Dashlet</div>
<div id="${id}-memberdir" class="body">

<div class="toolbar">
<div class="actions">
<form id="UploadForm" action="" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" accept-charset="utf-8">
File: <input type="file" name="file" id="fu"><br>
Title: <input name="title"><br>
Description: <input name="description"><br>
<input type="button" value="Create" onClick="callPost()" >
<script type="text/javascript">

function callPost() {
var title=document.getElementById("title");

url:Alfresco.constants.PROXY_URI +'/tutorials1/upload',

fn: this.success,

fn: this.failure,

2 ..repo side upload.js file 

// extract file attributes
var title = args.title;
var description = args.description;

// extract file
var file = null;
for each (field in formdata.fields)            //error comes here
if (field.name == "file" && field.isFile)
file = field;

// ensure file has been uploaded
if (file.filename == "")
status.code = 400;
status.message = "Uploaded file cannot be located";
status.redirect = true;
// create document in company home from uploaded file
upload = companyhome.createFile(file.filename) ;
upload.properties.title = title;
upload.properties.description = description;
// setup model for response template
model.upload = upload;

            so it will gives error that formdata is not define ...may be its possible that bcoz of i use ajax call its not get formdata.

otherwise i should use 
<form action="${url.service}" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data"> to call.

i.e in action tag with repo url but it's not working.

To complete this list, we could add "bulk importing" https://docs.alfresco.com/5.2/concepts/Bulk-Import-Tool.html
