Alfresco Export Connector

Enterprise-class document management at a fraction of the cost

Alfresco is an open source document management system. It is positioned as a single unified repository to manage any content – Documents, Images, Video and Audio.

With the CaptureBites™ Alfresco Export connector, it is possible to scan batches of documents, automatically index them with bar codes or OCR and export the documents as TIFF, PDF, PDF/A or super compressed PDF  into Alfresco.

You can map Kofax index fields with Alfresco content type specific properties and / or Alfresco Aspects (global properties).

The connector is compatible with Alfresco Community and Alfresco Content Services Enterprise Edition.

Alfresco setup screen

After connecting to an Alfresco server and selecting a Destination Repository, Kofax index fields can easily be mapped with Alfresco’s standard or custom Properties or Aspects. Alfresco properties are specific to a content type, while Aspects are global and can be associated with any Alfresco content type.

Browsing the Alfresco repository

To select the Destination Repository, the Alfresco connector communicates directly with the Alfresco server and shows a selection list of Destination Repositories for easy configuration.

Try it out with the Alfresco CMIS 1.1 test server

After installing the connector, you’ll find a job called CB Alfresco.

It is configured to export to the Alfresco CMIS 1.1 test server.

The server’s URL is:

Alfresco does not provide a way to check the result after export on their CMIS 1.1 test server. To test the Alfresco side of things, we recommend to sign up for an online Alfresco trial from here:
