ILM of SAP-attached Content on third party storage

Hi All,

We have existing document archiving using Documentum content server where the sap-attached content (BOR) and printlist is being stored.

We are planning to implement SAP ILM-enable data archiving within SAP environment i.e. from archiving to data storage using ILM Database Store (ILM Store) on a SAP IQ/HANA Database.

The following are the queries:

  1. If BOR object type is mapped onto the ILM-Enabled Archiving object, would it be feasible to inherit and enforce retention including legal hold, destruction for sap-attached content (BOR) & Printlist, taking into account that these content are stored at third party storage outside of SAP.
  2. Has anyone configured the ILM Store connecting to the SAP HANA? Is there any configuration guide on connecting to the SAP HANA instead of the SAP IQ database?

Any advice would very much be appreciated

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Wan,

    SAP ILM enforce retention rules on archived SAP data based on object type and policy and documents attached to those SAP objects inherit the same retention rules.

    ILM Store installation and configuration guide is available at -> Media Library -> Installation and Config. Guide for ILM Store. This is helpful for both SAP HANA and SAP IQ.

    Best regards,
