Comment: added info about Microsoft deprecating TLS < 1.2


To get started, simply create your own [dspace-source]/dspace/config/local.cfg based on the example, e.g.

Code Block
cd [dspace-source]/dspace/config/
cp local.cfg.EXAMPLE local.cfg


Code Block
mail.extraproperties = mail.smtp.auth=true, \

Note that as of January 2020 Microsoft has started to remove support for Transport Layer Security (TLS) versions 1.0 and 1.1 in Office 365 and Office 365 GCC (see more information here). This necessitates using TLS 1.2 then. Some users have reported being able to use the following configuration successfully (see discussion):

Code Block
mail.extraproperties = mail.smtp.socketFactory.port=587, \
                        mail.smtp.starttls.enable=true, \
                        mail.smtp.starttls.required=true, \

File Storage


Beginning with DSpace 6, your file storage location (aka bitstore) is now defined in the [dspace]/config/spring/api/bitstore.xml Spring configuration file.  By default it is defined as the [dspace]/assetstore/.  More information on modifying your file storage location can be found at   Configuring the Bitstream Store in the Storage Layer documentation.
