The Alfresco Records Management module adds Information Governance capability to the Alfresco ECM repository and Share interface. It includes features for declaring content as a formal record which will be managed through a disposition schedule, including legal holds and access control based on roles and capabilities. The vision for Alfresco Information Governance is to make the governance invisible to end users; usability is a top priority as most information governance project require changes to user behavior that results in a lack of adoption.
The Alfresco Records Management product consists of a proprietary module for Alfresco Content Services which is built on top of the open source Community Edition module. The Enterprise Edition module adds features targeted at large organizations with lots of administrators, and for organizations who need specific governmental certifications.
The roadmap of the project is determined by Alfresco Product Management in response to customer needs and analysis of the market place. Open source contributions are considered for inclusion based on their quality, relevance to the current roadmap, and our quality assurance backlog.
The community module of Alfresco Records Management is made available under the terms of the LGPL.
The main source repository is private and is hosted by Alfresco's instance of GitLab. The source code for the Community Edition module is in the public mirror:
