  1. Log into your moodle as an administrator and go to:

    Dashboard / Site administration / Plugins / Activity modules / edu-sharing resource

  2. Scroll all the way down. Here you can find the "Guest properties" section.
  3. Activate the "guest_option".
  4. Create a guest user in Alfresco or using the edu-sharing permissions tool. Copy and paste the user_id and the password to the homeApplication.properties.xml of the repository.
  5. Now switch back to moodle enter the user id in the corresponding field of the "Guest properties" section.
