Installation Steps

The following steps describe how to download and install the Alfresco Bulk Filesystem Import Tool:

  1. Download the latest AMP file containing the tool from here
  2. Shutdown your Alfresco instance (use the .sh inside your alfreso install folder)
  3. Make a backup of the original alfresco.war file. On Tomcat, this is located in ${ALFRESCO_HOME}/tomcat/webapps
  4. Use the Alfresco Module Management Tool to install the AMP file obtained in step 1
  5. Restart Alfresco, watching the log carefully for errors

Running the MMT

Run the following command:

  java -jar alfresco-mmt-2.1.jar [args]

It is compatible with V2.0 WAR files and above.

MMT Commands

The MMT has a number of commands. Details of these are outlined below:

install

usage: install <AMPFileLocation> <WARFileLocation> [options]

valid options:

   -verbose   : enable verbose output
   -directory : indicates that the amp file location specified is a directory.
                All amp files found in the directory and its sub directories are installed.
   -force     : forces installation of AMP regardless of currently installed module version
   -preview   : previews installation of AMP without modifying WAR file
   -nobackup  : indicates that no backup should be made of the WAR

 

Stop Alfresco

:~/alfresco-4.0.d-1$ ./ctlscript.sh stop

/home/ardian/alfresco-4.0.d-1/apache-tomcat/scripts/ctl.sh : tomcat not running

/home/ardian/alfresco-4.0.d-1/mysql/scripts/ctl.sh : mysql stopped

 

Check if alfresco is running

 

ardian@arbk-share:~/alfresco-4.0.d-1$ ps -ef | grep alfresco

ardian   18815 18168  0 11:06 pts/2    00:00:00 grep –color=auto alfresco

 

locate where the alfresco-mmt-2.1.jar is usually its under alfresco install dir in the bin/ 

For me its /alfresco-4.0.d-1/apps/alfresco

 

java -jar alfresco-mmt.jar install ~/alfresco-bulk-filesystem-import-1.1-ALF40.amp ~/alfresco-4.0.d-1/apache-tomcat/webapps/alfresco.war

 

list the modules

 

java -jar alfresco-mmt.jar list ~/alfresco-4.0.d-1/apache-tomcat/webapps/alfresco.war
