Subject Proposal for adding an Alfresco BFSI Output connector
Date Thu, 29 Jun 2017 11:41:51 GMT

Luis Cabaceira (Solutions Architect at Alfresco) contacted me because he
would like to contribute on a new Output Connector for migration purpose
specifically for migrating contents to an Alfresco instance.

For massive content migration scenario against an Alfresco instance the
CMIS Output Connector could be not enough in terms on timing.

The better way for migrating tons of contents to an Alfresco repo is to
create an export on the file system exactly how Alfresco is expecting for
importing them using its own Bulk File System Import Tool with the in-place
mode enabled:

The in-place mode allow to inject contents in the repository without
processing/uploading the binary but creating nodes with a property that
will associate the existent binary in the storage with the node itself.
This will solve a lot of problems considering how much time should be spend
processing upload streams.

This is a specific Alfresco Output Connector but it could solve a lot of
migration purpose problems all over the world and in the community.
I would like to invest some time on this connector together with him and
bring this in the project very soon.

What do you think about this proposal?

Please let me know.
Thank you for any feedback.
