General Tab

Set general connection parameters on this tab. The configuration properties dialog box is the same for the Alfresco eConnector and Alfresco components, although some options can only be configured from the Alfresco eConnector component.
Option Description
Activate Activate the component according to a condition. This option is only present in the eConnector component.
Pass through Select this check box if you want the document to be passed to the subsequent components in the workflow. This option is only present in the eConnector component.
Server address Enter the address of the Alfresco server.

For example, http://server_name:8080/Alfresco where server_name is the hostname for the machine running Alfresco.

Ignore invalid certificate Select this check box to ignore errors when the user connects to the server using an invalid SSL server certificate.

If the user does not select this check box and uses an invalid SSL server certificate, the following message is displayed:

"The underlying connection was closed: Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel."

When this option is selected, the error is ignored so that the user can connect to the server.

Note: This check box can be selected only if you enter an HTTPS server address.
User name Enter a user name that is authorized to access the server.
Obtain password via RRT Select this check box if you want to specify the password via RRTs.
Password Enter the password for the user name entered in the field above. This value is only used when the Obtain password via RRT check box is not selected.
Password RRT Enter an expression consisting of RRTs that will be replaced by the actual password at run time. This value will be only used when the Obtain password via RRT check box is selected.
Timeout Specify the connection timeout in seconds.
Note: You can drag and drop the internal RRTs into all options into fields on the General tab, but this will cause an error. Use of internal RRTs is prohibited in all options on the General tab.
