Nuxeo Federation Framework

The Nuxeo Federation Framework connector supports integration with 3rd party solutions for content federation, enabling users to search for and access content from multiple repositories. Today, the Nuxeo Federation Framework supports Simflofy. Simflofy is a leading content integration and federation product that provides numerous out-of-the-box connectors for various ECM repositories, including FileNet, Documentum, IBM Content Manager, SharePoint, and many others. Simflofy can also be used to support large-scale content migrations. This functionality requires a separately licensed subscription from Simflofy.

For Nuxeo Platforms Pattern(s): server-10.10, server-10.10-*


Once installed and configured, users will be able to search or migrate data across multiple content repositories.


  • If you need to install your own Simflofy instance, you can follow the Simflofy installation steps from their documentation.

Note that Simflofy requires MongoDB 3.4.x as a database.


This addon comes with a Blob Provider that enables access from Nuxeo to any content that Simflofy knows how to federate. This blob provider is configurable with the following parameters:

  • nuxeo.simflofy.url: the Simflofy URL.
  • nuxeo.simflofy.username: the username that Nuxeo will use to access Simflofy.
  • nuxeo.simflofy.password: the password that Nuxeo will use to access Simflofy.
  • nuxeo.simflofy.createFromKey.users: the list of users that can create blobs in this blob provider (separated by commas).
