What is Alfresco custom JDBC authenticator addon ?

Alfresco custom JDBC authenticator addon
provides an out of the box authentication subsystem able to login
against a custom table of users storaged in a relational table of a
custom application.

It is designed for users integration between an Alfresco
repository and a custom application. You can use it with any type of
database (mysql, postgresql, oracle….) with its corresponding jdbc
driver and it is fully customizable through authentication properties.
You can also use CIFS with this subsystem if your password field is
stored in MD4.

How to install it

The installation is tracked via an AMP package. Stop Alfresco,
copy the AMP file in ${ALF_HOME}/amps and use
${ALF_HOME}/bin/ script to install
the AMP. Then, copy configuration files to the extension directory to
customize and configure the authentication parameters. Once they are
configured, restart your Alfresco instance.

How to configure it

jdbc.query=SELECT password FROM myusers WHERE id='{1}'

# Default administrators

# If = true set jdbc.authentication.password.type = md4

# Password encryption type in DB plain|md5|md4


It is important to note that the other CIFS-able subsystems
must be deactivated (only one of the subsystems can use CIFS – in fact
the first one in the chain). In
