KM News Filtering


We have new requirements in our portal. The main requriement is inserting news.

We´ll have 2 type of users:

-Administratos who will create the news. News will be of 3 different types, R/3, BW and Sales

-Clients from R/3, BW and Sales that will read the news.

One of the requirements is having 3 different iViews having the news separated for each kind of client, for example, Sales people will only have sales news.

Ho can I do this? Filters? Taxonomy?

What´s the best way? We may need more division of news in future releases.

Is there any example on how to do that.

Thanks very much in advance for your help.

    Hi Fernando,

    I suggest you collect all news into one folder. Maybe more than one but use taxonomies to make different views. Add custom properties and classiffy documents in terms of custom properties.

    For example,

    create a

    /document/news and

    /document/newsarchieve folders

    create 3 custom property (checkbox ) r3, bw, sales


    create a 3 taxonomy folders

    r3, bw and sales

    which brings only related news items from two different folders. i.e.

    for r3 -> bring only news items whose r3 property is checked.

    for bw -> bring only news items whose bw property is checked.

    for sales -> bring only news items whose sales property is checked.

    In this way, you can also publish news on more than one folder at the same time it is very easy to add new groups.

      you may be right, TREX may not be configured.

      I need to wait until the administrators get online this afternoon, however looking into the portal in Monitoring-KM-TREX monitor, the property Server Status indicates that it´s not configured:

      +The name server is not running or no name server is configured in TREX Service Properties. Start J2EE Admin to change the properties. +

      i´ll let you know if that fixes the problem

    you do not neccessarily need a taxonomie for this.

    You can build a folder structure





    And tell the administrators where to create which news.

    The endusers can navigate into the same folder structure to read the news, but of course with a different layout.

    Of course you can also build up a classification index and a taxonomy. Then it will be more work, but also more flexible and you can use different folders for authors and readers.

    There is this document

    and also this one

    which maybe of help.



    p.s.: the SAP Education class TEP30 also provides a case study to build a corporate news scenario with a taxonomy. And a lot more 😉

    • Hi,

      In this structure, how do you publish a news on two or more group at the same time without duplicating file ?

      You can create lots of different taxonomy folders according to the properties. If you want to move one news to another group just change the property That's the power of the taxonomy.
