Hello,

I manage an Alfresco Community 5.x server with more than 2000 users. One of them discovered CmisSync. I would like to disallow CmisSync access to Alfresco.

Thx for your help,

Luc

Hello Luc,

If 2000 users start using CmisSync, you can be proud that your server is useful (high user adoption), but indeed without a bit of preparation it can slow down your server significantly.
For the record, I will talk about the two solutions available in that case:

Solution A: Configure Alfresco/CmisSync to work efficiently
- Enable ChangeLog on Alfresco. This will allow CmisSync to be much more efficient.
- Follow the other pieces of advice at https://github.com/aegif/CmisSync/wiki/Improving-performance
- The ultimate solution is called "Zero Configuration": It gives the administrators control on how people use CmisSync. Read at the bottom of this page: http://CmisSync.com/get (note: it is part of CmisSync Business)

Solution B: Prevent people from synchronizing
- Find out what your Alfresco server's CMIS URL is.
- In your Tomcat configuration, disallow access to all URLs starting with that pattern.
- You can also do that at the firewall level.

Cheers!

Hello Nicolas,

Seems I forgot to check the "receive notification".

I prefer solution B, but I can't see how it is possible to disallow acces to an url which is also used by Share within a browser. Maybe I miss something.

Thx again for your reply

Best regards,

Luc
