How to Find Where an Existing Alfresco Document is Stored

If you know the web address of an existing Alfresco document and need to update it, it can be very challenging to determine where to find it.

Here is one way to track it down.

  1. Look at the end of the web address for the words in the file name. This example includes the words Student Center Request Form. %20 in the file name represents a space when appearing in a web address.

  2. Log in to Alfresco and find the Search box in the upper-right corner.

  3. Type or paste those words into the search box. Sometimes you’ll need to enclose multiple words in quote marks to narrow the results.
