Retrieve Groups from Alfresco

This section describes how to retrieve group information from Alfresco.

To retrieve groups from Alfresco

  1. Open the OmniGroupServer configuration file.
  2. In the [Repositories] section, create a repository to contain the groups. For example:

    [Repositories]
    Number=1
    0=Alfresco
    
  3. Create a section to contain the task details and set the following configuration parameters:

    GroupServerLibrary The full path (including the file name) to the library that allows the group server to access the repository. Use the ogs_alfresco library.
    AlfrescoUrl

    The URL of the Alfresco instance to retrieve users and groups from.

    OmniGroupServer appends /service/api/groups to the value of this parameter, so do not include this part of the URL. For example, if the REST API for retrieving groups is located at http://10.0.0.2/alfresco/service/api/groups, set this parameter to http://10.0.0.2/alfresco.

    GroupServerAllUserGroups (Optional) The ogs_alfresco library does not automatically populate the GROUP_EVERYONE group. To add every user to the GROUP_EVERYONE group, set this parameter to GROUP_EVERYONE.
    BasicUsername The user name to use to access the Alfresco REST API using basic authentication. HPE recommends encrypting the value of this parameter before entering it into the configuration file. For information about how to encrypt parameter values, see Encrypt Passwords.
    BasicPassword The password to use to access the Alfresco REST API using basic authentication. HPE recommends encrypting the value of this parameter before entering it into the configuration file. For information about how to encrypt parameter values, see Encrypt Passwords.

    For example:

    [Alfresco]
    GroupServerLibrary=ogs_alfresco AlfrescoUrl=http://alfresco-host/alfresco GroupServerAllUserGroups=GROUP_EVERYONE // For basic authentication... BasicUsername=admin BasicPassword=password

    For a complete list of configuration parameters that you can use to configure this task, refer to the OmniGroupServer Reference

  4. Save and close the OmniGroupServer configuration file.
