Welcome to the Alfresco Wiki

You've arrived at the Alfresco Wiki, a community-managed information resource about Alfresco. If you need authoritative, formal documentation on the platform, you should start with That's where you'll find end-user and technical details on Community, Team, and Enterprise. The wiki, on the other hand, is for content that the community couldn't find on (or wouldn't make sense to include there). For example, the wiki is where you'll find code snippets, cook books, technical details on edge cases or highly-specific use cases, and other stuff that wouldn't make sense in a formal documentation set, like local community meetup listings, roadmap, and how to contribute.

If you are still confused about versus or you want to learn how to take a more active role in the Alfresco Wiki, take a look at the Guidelines.

Alfresco, in partnership with Zia Consulting, has developed a native iOS application for iPad and iPhone. The application allows mobile access to an Alfresco document repository. The application runs against the most recent Alfresco releases and no additional software needs to be installed or configured on the server. It is configured to connect to a demo Alfresco repository, so even if you aren't ready to hit your production repo, download the app and have a look. The app is available, free of charge, on the Apple iTunes Store.
