Alfresco CMIS host name

The problem we’ve been having is to do with our Alfresco server name when using CMIS.

We are running our Alfresco instance behind an Apache server (on a different box) and the default configuration means that when we make a call to the CMIS server all the links returned have the link to the Alfresco host which we can’t follow as it’s behind a firewall. ->

e.g.  Make a call to and all the links come back with as part of the URL

The solution described here Alfresco JIRA issue is as follows:

Add to the file


(You may need to create the file)


    <config evaluator="string-compare" condition="Server">



If you haven’t done it already then it’s probably worth adding/changing the following in as well
