I'm not quite sure exactly what you mean when you refer to 'the KM Content File' in this scenario - KM Content is made up of a collection of repositories which all have their own specific configuration and can store content in different methods and locations.

Generally, they can be broken down into the following two types of repository -

Internal Repositories

These would generally consist of CM Repositories which can be configured with the following persistence types:

  • DB - All data (documents, folders, and metadata) is stored in the database.
  • DBFS - Metadata and folders are stored in the database, but documents are stored in the file system.
  • FSDB - Folders and documents are stored in the file system, but metadata is stored in the database.

External Repositories

These refer to repositories where the content is stored in an external source but can be accessed and manipulated through KM via the relevant repository. Example are as follows -

  • File System Repository - Provides read and write access to content stored in a file system.
  • WebDAV repository - Provides read and write access to content stored on a WebDAV server, for example, on an MS Internet Information Server.

You can find further information on these in the official SAP Help documentation

CM Repository Manager

External Repositories

I hope this is of some assistance!

Kind regards,

Cathal

Thanks for your answer, I 'd like to know how the files stored in the database are configured and how to download them in bulk. Best Regards.

All content stored within KM repositories (of DB persistence) and the DB relevant content for DBFS and FSDB repositories (as described in my last comment) are stored within the KMC_DBRM_CONTENT table in the DB.

However, it would not be recommended to download such content directly from the DB and I cannot provide steps to do so.

Instead, we would recommend downloading the specific content via the KMC UI, ie. through Content Administration > KM Content within the portal. Here you can access the various repositories and select a collection of folders and/or files for download which can then be downloaded as a collection in a zip file.

This would be a far more reliable and straightforward option rather than attempting to identify specific content within a DB table which contains a large collection of content from across all KM repositories.

Kind regards,

Cathal

I tried to download from KM Content, but I could only download it individually. The maximum number of batch downloads was only 100M, and it was a file in KMC format, which made me very troubled.Best Regards.
