Using Alfresco with Filestack

How can you use Alfresco with Filestack?

This is all you need to get started. A simple pick.

Sample Code
filepicker.pick( { mimetypes: ['*/*'], container: 'modal', services:['ALFRESCO'], }, function(Blob){ console.log(replaceHtmlChars(JSON.stringify(Blob))); }, function(FPError){ // console.log(FPError.toString()); - print errors to console } );

Setting up a Custom Alfresco oauth application

By default, you do not need to configure anything to start uploading files from Alfresco, Filestack is ready to go out of the box. When a user logs into their Alfresco account from your site, the Filestack company application will show up. You can configure it so that your application shows up instead in order to make a more seamless experience for your customers. So let's get started.

  1. Go to and fill out the registration form to signup.
  2. Register for an API key
  3. Once you have completed registration you will end up in the dashboard for your account. Click on applications on the left and then click on the "add application" button.
    On the Alfresco dashboard click on Applications
    Click on the add application button to create an Alfresco application
  4. Give the application a name, and a short decsription and select Other as the platform. On the API Management tab Select Alfresco Public API and agree to the Terms and Conditions. Finally on the auth tab enter the oauth callback URL with type public.
    Fill out the application name and description and click submit
    Select Alfresco Public API and agree to the terms and conditions
    Enter the oauth callback URL
  5. You should now have been granted an API Key. To access the APP Key and the APP Secret click the gear and select edit. Then click on the auth tab. The key and secret are available from the two buttons in the window.
    Go back in to the APP management window by the clicking edit in the gear menu
    Get the API Key and Secret Key from the Auth tab
  6. Now go to the Filestack developer portal and enter your App Key and APP Secret for Alfresco and click save.
    Enter the keys in the Filestack Developer Portal
  7. As an optional step you can choose to request production status under the API management tab in the window that allows you to edit/view your application details. After you request the change, it will show up as pending on the Manage Apps screen.
    Apply for production status
    View the status of your request
  8. Next test your app to make sure it works. After agreeing to the authorization request from the application you created, you should be able to connect to Alfresco through your app using Filestack.
    View your Alfresco files inside the Filestack dialog

Congratulations! You have successfully connected Filestack with Alfresco using oauth.
