Integrating Content from other Portals

Hi,

I am not sure if this is the correct place to post this. Please bear with me if the subject is inappropriate (any redirections would be appreciated).

To ease perusal, please find my questions highlighed in <b>Bold</b>

The SAP Portal allows organizations to pool content from various sources (such as numerous internal portals) and make them available via ONE entry point. If I am not mistaken, I understand that the Portal achieves this via iViews and KM.

I know we can use certain iViews to grab content from external sources (like Yahoo) and integrate it into the Portal. However, I am somewhat dumbfounded with how we can actually link and reuse content from existing portals in the organization. It would not make sense if we use a URL iView for ALL of our content. There has to be a better way. Initially, I thought we could use the KM and set a Web/WebDAV repository, where we can assign the KM iViews to the content. In this case, content developers can either work on the content via the Portal or directly on the content server. However, I have not been successful at retrieving content from the Web/WebDAV repositories. It is possible that my setup is wrong, but <b>I do need to know if I am on the right track in integrating content to the Portal</b>.

Any other advice on this matter would be appreciated.

Thank You.

Yours truly.

      Hi,

      I have seen the Federated Portal Concept and I am afraid that we do not meet the prerequisites for Federated Portals. Our content servers might not be WSRP compliant. I was hoping that there would be alternativies without involving WSRP.

      Thank You.

      Yours truly.

      Hi,

      While the appIntegrator looks promising, I am afraid it is not what we are looking for. To achieve the same effect (though not at the same performance level), we were able to use a URL iView to retrieve the content from our servers. We created a custom page where we identify the user from the SAP logon ticket and authenticate the user before returning the content to the user. Are there any other alternatives?

      Thank You.

      Yours truly.
