Re-deployment of the ARender HMI server in Alfresco

If your Alfresco and Share module does not share the same tomcat, you will have to drop the plugin arender-for-alfresco-share-plugin-{version}.jar and arender-for-alfresco-ACS-plugin-{version}.jar in the lib/ folder of each of these deployed applications.

If they are deployed in the same tomcat, then drop the arender-for-alfresco-share-plugin-{version}.jar and arender-for-alfresco-ACS-plugin-{version}.jar plugin into {alfresco_tomcat}/shared/lib.

The two plugins respectively allow to extend the ACS REST API used by ARender and the integration of the ARender viewer in share.

Add the following lines to the {alfresco_tomcat}/shared/classes/alfresco/web-extension/share-config-custom.xml file between the alfresco-config attributes.

<config evaluator="string-compare" condition="Arender">
        <!-- exemple: <url></url> -->
