SAP easy DMS

Hi SAP Gurus.

I've got a requirement to copy documents stored in Easy DMS to a file system for a 3rd party application.

I understand that the documents are stored in tables DRAW and on the content server, but how, via ABAP, can I move\copy these documents to a mapped filesystem or AL11 directory?

In moving these documents can I also rename them depending on the requirement?

Can WwebDav be used? If so, how?

    Hi Gavin,

    when I got your requirement right, then you are looking for a way to extract the files from a document info record to a mapped network drive (filesystem).

    For this action maybe the "Export Folder" function in EasyDMS could be used or you can Sync the EasyDMS folders to make them offline available.

    Another ABAP possibility would be to use BAPI_DOCUMENT_CHECKOUTVIEW. With this BAPI you should be able to create a local copy of the originals in your PC or another directory.

    Best regards,

    • Hi Christoph.

      It now seems to be working, when using BAPI_DOCUMENT_CHECKOUTVIEW2.

      Is it possible to run this in the background, checking out multiple documents at the same time, while somehow maintaining the directory structure? Can this BAPI be used to write to the App server filesysem in AL11 instead of the windows frontend?
