Cameo Collaborator for Alfresco 19.0 LTR SP4 Documentation

On this page

Since Cameo Collaborator is based on Alfresco Community, you must install and configure Alfresco Community to use Cameo Collaborator. Before you begin the installation, go to the Download Cameo Collaborator page and obtain the following files:

  • Alfresco Community installer 201605.


    We recommend using Alfresco Community 201605, but Cameo Collaborator also works with Alfresco Community 5.0.d. For information on how to upgrade Alfresco Community, refer to the Upgrading instructions in Alfresco documentation.

    Note that after upgrading Alfresco Community, you must migrate the database to the new version as well. Database migration is your responsibility.

  • cameo-collaborator-share-<version number>.amp
  • cameo-collaborator-repo-<version number>.amp


Before beginning the procedure, make sure that the architecture meets the prerequisites for the Alfresco Community installation.

To validate the architecture, follow the steps described in Alfresco Community Documentation. Pay special attention to the Database validation step to prevent data loss due to database failure when using Cameo Collaborator.
