Due to spam, the infrastructure team has restricted the access to all ASF Confluence open wikis (Confluence is shared by all ASF projects). If you want to add or edit a page, comment or attachment, you need to sign up (create an account in Confluence) and be registered by the OFBiz team as a contributor. If you have already signed up to Confluence, to register simply send your Confluence username (see in your profile) to the OFBiz user Mailing List: user@ofbiz.apache.org. We will then register you as an OFBiz contributor.

Features that should be available in the framework-only OFBiz distribution


At this time OFBiz is distributed as a single package containing both the framework and several complex ERP applications.
It is a shared community willing to have the framework part separated from the applications so that it could even be distributed alone and, only if needed, the selected applications added during deployment.

This page collects information, requirements and agreed todos that should be considered while working on the OFBiz framework. This should be also considered a guide to better coordinate efforts on this large, long-awaited task.

We had several discussions on the mailing lists. Please find here useful links.

1. admin user should be created during the installation
2. admin can create users and let them log in
