Alfred Edge

Alfred Edge, single entry point to Alfresco, for an agile, simplified and decoupled architecture


Alfred Edge is an Alfresco API Gateway, a single-entry point, that verifies the user’s identity and simplifies your integrations with Alfresco and your ECM Architecture.



  • Centralized Authentication, with Single Sign On support for secure access control
  • Metadata based access control, allowing organizations to apply regulations and security policies, according to the user ‘s profile
  • Quality of Service, by assigning priorities and offering asynchronous and synchronous processing according to your company's policies.
  • Improved visibility of all APIs access to Alfresco


Business Challenges:  


Many Alfresco administrators struggle with upgrading Alfresco systems, because they are tightly coupled with different integrations and third-party systems, including scan facilities, email, document output systems and vertical business applications.

To tackle that problem, Alfred Edge decouples your content services architecture using a “facade pattern”. Alfred Edge offers a single point of API access, you can finally isolate upgrades from applications evolution.


Solution Benefits:       

  • Lower cost of changes: Alfred Edge integrates more than one Alfresco instance in a transparent way. You do not have to worry about cross Alfresco version compatibility anymore and you can isolate Alfresco upgrades from application evolution.
  • Quality of Services: Handling thousands of internet users, without overloading your Alfresco, by assigning priorities (asynchronous requests) and apply rate limiting (synchronous request).
  • Operations Clarity: Leveraging distributed tracing to give visibility into your requests performance. Sending telemetry data to your monitoring system (e.g. Graphite, Datadog,…) and helping you in keeping control of your performance
