Alfresco Angular 2 Components Catalog describes how you can set the default folder for the document-list dynamically. This is the snippet from the website:

import { ChangeDetectorRef } from '@angular/core';
import { AlfrescoApiService } from 'ng2-alfresco-core';

export class FilesComponent implements OnInit {

    currentFolderId: string = '-my-';

    constructor(private apiService: AlfrescoApiService,
                private changeDetector: ChangeDetectorRef) {
        // ...

    ngOnInit() {
        let nodes: any = this.apiService.getInstance().nodes;
        nodes.getNodeInfo('-root-', {
            includeSource: true,
            include: ['path', 'properties'],
            relativePath: '/Sites/swsdp/documentLibrary'
        .then(node => {
            this.currentFolderId =;

I've tested it on 1.7.0 and it only works when running the angular app on my local machine. As soon as I deploy it on a remote testserver (still intranet) it sometimes, but not always, doesn't show the desired folder specified by relativePath, but navigates to the path currentFolderId initially was set to. In this case -my-.


currentFolderId: string = '-my-';


currentFolderId: string;

solves the problem for me but I don't know if this is really the right technique or if I was just lucky.
