Alfresco Remove Versions from Share


This project has been developed as sample for How to extend (properly) and "old" Alfresco Share feature talk at Alfresco DevCon 2018. If you want to learn how to develop this addon, attend Alfresco DevCon or watch the recorded session.


Alfresco Share only exposes actions to revert, download and view properties for every action of a node. This addon includes a delete action which removes the version from the repository. The action is available at document detail version list and it's only visible for members of group VERSION_REMOVERS.

License The plugin is licensed under the LGPL v3.0.

State Current patch release is 1.0.0

Compatibility The current version has been developed using Alfresco 201707 and Alfresco SDK 3.0.1

Original Alfresco resources have been overwritten

Downloading the ready-to-deploy-plugin

The binary distribution is made of one JAR file for the repository and one JAR file for Share:

You can install it by copying JAR repo file to $ALFRESCO_HOME/modules/platform, JAR share file to $ALFRESCO_HOME/modules/share and re-starting Alfresco.

Populate the Group

The VERSION_REMOVERS group will be created for you automatically. If, for some reason, it does not get created, create a new group with an ID of GROUP_VERSION_REMOVERS. You can add individuals and groups to this group. For example, at the very least you will probably want to add ALFRESCO_ADMINISTRATORS to this group.

Building the artifacts

You can build the artifacts from source code using maven

$ mvn clean package
