Some of our clients include MTV, NBC Universal and the World Wildlife Fund.

Description: Appnovation Technologies demonstrated how Drupal and Alfresco can work together to power the new Alfresco Community web site. In the demo, Appnovation Technologies showed how Drupal can be leveraged to provide both a front-end and community platform for the Alfresco system. The Alfresco community site uses Drupal for both the interface and for powering various community modules such as user profiles. The Alfresco backend allows for a complete file management system and allows for complex approval work flows for user uploaded files. The integration between Alfresco and Drupal is made possible by the CMIS module.

Title: Can you hear me now?


Panel: David Caruana, Luis Sala, Scott Davis, Jared Ottley, Jean Barmash, Richard Im, Jeff Potts


Web Recording: http://alfresco.acrobat.com/p18701924/


Podcast Recording: No MP3 is currently available.


Show Notes:


Aside from a few minor audio issues, our first episode went quite well. We talk about the Barcelona Community Conference, the 3.0 roadmap, WCM, ADW, LDAP, and Backups.


Questions Addressed (in rough order):

  1. Is it possible to let users be created on the fly when using Kerberos Authentication? I am asking because I have more than 100000 accounts where only a few will be using Alfresco. Now when I enable LDAP sync it will sync all accounts (including creating home spaces for them). This takes a long time.
  1. With regards to WCM and deploying on a remote server, I believe the remote server needs an Alfresco instance running on it - does that instance need access to the same DB as the authoring Alfresco instance?
  1. Are web forms going to be available on the DM Side?
  1. How do you do archiving with Alfresco?
  1. How do you backup Alfresco without shutting it down? (Hot Backups)
  1. Is it possible to list the users in workflow without having to sync them?
  1. We are thinking of deploying Alfresco on a Virtual Server running Centos with 4GB of RAM, 250GB Oracle DB, and 1TB Filestore. Is 4GB adequate for that?
  1. Is there a way to run a script with "admin" authority? So we can move a document to the folder that the user running the script does not have access to?
