Alfresco in an Extranet

Question asked by vesahava on Sep 7, 2007

This is the first time I am posting & am not sure if this is the right forum. I am trying to find a solution that will address the following scenario:

From time to time, our internal users share documents with individuals that are external to our organization. Specific documents are shared with specific external users and we need to ensure that external users have access only to those documents that have been shared to them. Trying to implement this with shared drives has been a nightmare (multiple internal users sharing documents with multiple external users with many-to-many mappings between internal & external users as well as documents). Internal users often resort to email attachments / overnighting printed documents which raises security & confidentiality concerns.

Has anyone used Alfresco to provide specific external users with access to specific documents, i.e. access to content is user-specific? Can this be done using a portal interface?

Thanks & appreciate the help.
