Unable to retrieve the attachment from Open text server which is integrated with SAP

Hi Team,

we are having the requirement to read the attachment from the open text content service folders and display it in the SAP Fiori application. Our SAP system is integrated with xECM and we are able to virtually see the Open text content folders and attachments via business workspace. we exactly want to retrieve this documents only.

Please let me know is there any RFC or classes from where we can directly retrieve this.

As of now i have tried below for consuming open text web services but that didnt help as we are not aware of the parameters to be passed to that exact methods:

I am trying to test the Open text web services Authentication , Document Management and Content services in SOAP UI Client to confirm the methods and paramters to be passed. Once it is successfully identified i will be creating abap proxies for it.

In SoapUI I am able to get the Authentication Token from the Web service Authentication & Method Authenticate User. But i am unable to proceed further. As i am new to open text and as well as Web services , please help me here with the sample paramters,headers to be set in Soap wsdl methods to test it in the soap ui client .

As i have gone through the blogs with sample Java Code , we have to pass this Auth token to document management service and get document id and then use the ID to get the content by means Content service, method Downloadcontent. But when i am passing this auth token to any methods it is giving me the error.

Even a small information will be much of helpful.

Thanks ,

Saranya Sakthi.

    Hi Sakivel,

    Kindly check with your admin on the Access control permission. If you are able to see the BW but not documents inside it I guess it is more access problem.

    For these kind of issues, there exist now an SAP add-on: YAC

    YAC is able to manage all types of attachments and to make them visible in the Fiori Apps attachment lists. In the same manner it is able to transform any attachment added to a Fiori App attachment list into a GOS or Archivelink (Business Document) attachment.

    Furthermore YAC supports all types of Content Repositories, on premise and in the cloud: SAP, OpenText, CMIS (Sharepoint, Alfresco, ...), File System, and custom !

    And very important: YAC does all this without any change in the SAP Standard or in the Fiori Apps ! No need to customize your UIs, YAC will do the job !

    If you wish further information send a mail to
