Install & Configure

Installation process is very simple. Assume you have Alfresco 3.3+ installed and running. Anyway, you can follow the instructions from

On the other hand, you've to download the latest version of FISE from

For document simplification, we're going to use as reference:
  • ALF_HOME: Alfresco installation folder
  • FISE_HOME: FISE installation folder

Running FISE

Alfresco is going to listen at 8080 port, so we're going to run FISE at 7080 port:

java -Xms512m -Xmx1024m -XX:MaxPermSize=128M -jar eu.iksproject.fise.launchers.lite-0.9-20101022.jar -p 7080

Alfresco configuration

You must define the below properties in ALF_HOME/tomcat/shared/classes/


You must also enable the fise:enanced aspect to can be used by a rule. Edit, or create, ALF_HOME/tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/extension/web-client-config-custom.xml with the below configuration:

   <config evaluator="string-compare" condition="Action Wizards">
         <aspect name="fise:enhanced"/>

Applying the AMPs files

Download the latest versions of Alfresco FISE AMPs, from Download page, and copy it into the amps* folder and apply them:

cp fiseiks-alfresco-module-0.2.amp ALF_HOME/amps
cp fiseiks-share-module-0.2.amp ALF_HOME/amps-share

Create a new site and enjoy

Once applied the AMPs and started Alfresco and FISE, you must create a new site through Alfresco Share (http://localhost:8080/share). Once created it, you must go to Alfresco Web Client (http://localhost:8080/alfresco) and create a new rule for the documentLibrary container of your new site (for example, /Company Home/Sites/mysemanticsite/documentLibrary). Once there, create a new rule with the below properties:

  • Condition: All items
  • Action: Add aspect
  • Select required feature: Fise Enhanced
  • Type: Items are created or enter in this folder
  • Title: FISE
  • Apply rule to subspaces: Checked
  • Run rule in background: Checked
You can try it with your own documents, or getting FISE demo data files

Upload your documents to your site "Document Library", and enjoy ;-)
