"Import/Export ACP Tool" for Alfresco Share

This extension allows you to import and export ACP files from Share UI (you can also import (and extract) ZIP files).

Building the module

Check out the project if you have not already done so

    git clone git://

An Ant build script is provided to build JAR file OR AMP files containing the custom files.

To build JAR file, run the following command from the base project directory:

    ant dist-jar

If you want to build AMP files, run the following command:

    ant dist-amp

Installing the module

This extension is a standard Alfresco Module, so experienced users can skip these steps and proceed as usual.

1st method: Installing JAR (recommended)

  1. Stop Alfresco
  2. Copy share-import-export-X.X.X.jar into the /tomcat/shared/lib/ folder of your Alfresco (you might need to create this folder if it does not already exist).
  3. Start Alfresco

2nd method: Installing AMPs

  1. Stop Alfresco

  2. Use the Alfresco Module Management Tool to install the modules in your Alfresco and Share WAR files:

     java -jar alfresco-mmt.jar install import-export-alfresco-vX.X.X.amp $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/alfresco.war -force
     java -jar alfresco-mmt.jar install import-export-share-vX.X.X.amp $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/share.war -force
  3. Delete the $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/alfresco/ and $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/share/ folders.
    Caution: please ensure you do not have unsaved custom files in the webapp folders before deleting.

  4. Start Alfresco

Using the module

Go to the Share Admin console.
Export tool (ACP only): http://server:port/share/page/console/admin-console/export
Import tool (ACP and ZIP files): http://server:port/share/page/console/admin-console/import
