Alfresco Slack Plugin – Installation guide In order to install Alfresco Slack plugin in your Alfresco instance you need to follow the steps described below.

You will find two ways for installing the plugin and it depends on which installation type you have approached for Alfresco: you can use the manual installation (Module Management Tool) or you can use the automatic installation based on the apply_amps script provided by the installation bundle of Alfresco.

Software architecture
Alfresco Slack Plugin is based on two different Alfresco Module Packages (AMP):

- alfresco-repo-slack-x.x.amp (Repository)
- alfresco-share-slack-x.x.amp (Alfresco Share)


Manual mode using MMT
If you want to install the plugin and you have an Alfresco installation that you have manually built for your environment without using the installer provided by Alfresco, follow these steps:

1. Shutdown Alfresco

2. Copy alfresco-repo-slack-x.x.amp in your server where you have the Alfresco repository and run the following command using the MMT jar:

java -jar alfresco-mmt.jar install alfresco-slack-x.x.amp alfresco.war -verbose

This command should return a similar output for indicating a successfully operation:
alfrescoSlackPlugin-MMT-install-repo


3. Copy alfresco-share-slack-x.x.amp in the server where you have installed Alfresco Share and run the following command using the MMT jar:

java -jar alfresco-mmt.jar install alfresco-share-slack-x.x.amp share.war -verbose

This command should return a similar output for indicating a successfully operation:
alfrescoSlackPlugin-MMT-install-share

4. Clean all the temp folders of your servlet container / application server. In the case of Tomcat you only need to remove the following folders:
- ALFRESCO_HOME/tomcat/webapps/alfresco
- ALFRESCO_HOME/tomcat/webapps/share
- ALFRESCO_HOME/tomcat/work/Catalina/localhost/alfresco
- ALFRESCO_HOME/tomcat/work/Catalina/localhost/share


5. Restart Alfresco
 




Automatic mode using the Alfresco installation bundle
To install the plugin using the Alfresco bundle folder structure follow these steps:

1. Shutdown Alfresco

2. Copy alfresco-repo-slack-x.x.amp inside the folder ALFRESCO_HOME/amps

3. Copy alfresco-share-slack-x.x.amp inside the folder ALFRESCO_HOME/amps_share

4. Run the apply_amps script that you find in ALFRESCO_HOME/bin and wait for the following output:

alfrescoSlackPlugin-apply-amps-script

5. Restart Alfresco
