redirect the shopping cart attachment from ebp doc server to file net serve

Hi SRM Experts,

we need a clarity for the below setup in SRM 4.0 extended classic scenario.

In SRM, the Documents attached to a Shopping Cart is currently storing in ebp doc server (http://gspsp01corp.gsp:8021sap/ebp/docserver/210/CR50327.JPG?attcget&ClId=45CFBD9A97BA5FCDE1000000224CC10C).

Instead of this, we need to set up all the attachments are to be store in external file server location called filenet. Where do we can change this and, what is the configuration set up need to do it in SRM. Please suggest as this is very urgent.

Your immediate response will be highly appreciated.

    It is mentioned in the config guide

    Setting up Attachments


    You have to make the following settings if you want to use attachments in combination with

    your purchasing documents.



    1. To display attachments in your Internet browser, make the relevant settings in the

    Internet Communication Framework in transaction SICF.

    2. If you want to have several clients in the system, create an alias for each client, with the

    alias pointing to /default_host/sap/ebp/docserver.

    3. In the tab page Service Data, create the client number in the Client field under the

    logon data.

    4. Choose one of the following options for logon. SAP recommends that you choose the

    first option.

    a. For the Single-Sign-On configuration, do the following:

    �� Go to transaction SMICM and choose Goto → Services.

    �� View the domain name that is being used for SAP Web Application

    Server and check against the domain name being used in the webserver

    for SAP Internet Transaction Server. The same domain name must be

    used for both, for example, washost.<sap.corp>:4711/… and


    &#56256;&#56451; Go to transaction SS02, enter RFC destination NONE and execute. Check

    that the profile parameters login/create_sso2_ticket and

    login/accept_sso2_ticket of your Enterprise Buyer system are set to value

    1 (ticket including certificate). If this is not the case, go to transaction

    RZ11 and change the values accordingly.

    This means that the ticket generated when the user logs on to the ITS

    can be accepted by the HTTP service.

    &#56256;&#56451; Change ITS service to GLOBAL. This allows the generation of a ticket to

    be requested during logon.

    &#56256;&#56451; Ensure that the parameter ~mysapcomgetsso2cookie is set to the value


    &#56256;&#56451; Publish the service

    b. Define a user in the HTTP service. If you are only using one client, define the

    user in the Docserver node. If you have several clients, define a user in the Alias

    node. We recommend that you choose user type Communication.

    Configuration for Attachment transfer


    In order to store shopping cart attachments in the backend system, you must first activate the

    transfer by creating an active method and by setting the indicator for parameter


    or BAdI BBP_CREATE_REQ_BACK (for purchase requisitions).

    See Implementation Guide (IMG):

    Supplier Relationship Management &#8594; SRM Server &#8594; Business Add-Ins (BAdIs) &#8594; Follow-

    On Document Generation in the Backend-System &#8594; Purchase Order in Backend System


    Supplier Relationship Management &#8594; SRM Server &#8594; Business Add-Ins (BAdIs) &#8594; Follow-

    On Document Generation in the Backend-System &#8594; Purchase Requisition in Backend-



    Then you must configure the R/3 Document Management System (DMS) in transaction



    1. Create document type SRM. Note that no flag is set in any of the columns.

    2. Double click in the detail view to define the new Doc. type desc. = SRM Documents.

    Set the Use KPro indicator.

    &#56256;&#56443; Enter 1 in the Number assignment field.

    &#56256;&#56443; Enter an internal number range interval. You can use an existing interval or

    create a new one in transaction CV90. The internal number range must be used,

    because the GUID of the SRM attachments has more digits than the number in

    the backend system.

    &#56256;&#56443; Maintain the number exit. The number exit is a program exit for document

    number. It controls number assignment and version numbering for documents.

    The default setting is MCDOKZNR. If you want to control the number assignment

    or the version increment via a USER_EXIT, then you have to replace the

    program MCDOKZNR with a company-specific program. You can find further

    information in the field help for number exit.

    &#56256;&#56443; In the screen area Field selection enter – in the field Document Status.

    3. Go to the Dialog Structure and double-click on the entry Define object links. Define the

    new object links EKPO and EBAN. Maintain object link descriptions for EKPO

    (Purchase order item; 248) and EBAN (Purchase req. item; Scr. no. 247)

    4. Define the workstation application in transaction DC30.

    All required file types should be included in this list.

    Hello sekar,

    I think FileNet has SAP adapter option which connects to SAP Contents Server.

    SRM -> Contents Server -> FileNet. FileNet stores actual documents and Contents Server just keep the index/link.

    Please check the IMG.

    SRM -> Cross Application -> Define Setting for Attachments


    SAP Web Application Server - Basis Services - SAP Knowledge Provider - Content Management Service - SAP Content Server - SAP Content Server Administration.
