Accessing Documentum Content thru KM in portal

Hi,

I am trying to connect to Documentum content thru KM in portal. I am looking for a better approach to do the same.

http://www.emc.com/products/detail/software/content-services-sap-portal-iviews.htm.

http://www.emc.com/products/detail/software/file-share-services.htm

As per the above two links i understand that documentum content can be accessed by Portal iViews. But not sure from where i can find those iViews? and also not sure whether it can be accessed with Windows file share service?

Could anybody suggest me which approcah is better ? Either thru portal iViews or thru KM repositories?

1. Could anybody guide me what SAP Portal iViews can be used to access Documentum Content?

2. With either the File system repository manager or WEBDAV Repository manager can we access the the documents directly from the Document file share of Documentum?

for example.. The Documents are in this path

Document file share\Repositories\.

Please guide me on this...

Point will be rewarded for the rightful answers.

Regards

Sireesha.

    Hi,

    you need a KM Repository Manager to connect Documentum to KM. I think Documentum delivers

    one allready (however they charge a license fee for it)

    You can also witre your own Repository Manger to access 3rd party repositories from KM.

    Check SAP's KM documentation. It's not difficult.

    Cheers Frank

      HI frank,

      Thank you for your reply.

      I think Documentum provides both ivews and repository managers but license is required? am i correct?

      Would not it be possible with file system repository manager in KM to connect to documentum?

      Bocz documentum has one service called "Document File share". Actually all the content will be placed in the repositories of this folder of only. So i thought we can access this content from portal with file system repository manager or even WEBDAV also as documentum supports both the protocols.

      Could you please clarify my doubt ? If its not possible with any other external repositories in KM how can i create the custom rep?

      Could you please provide me any help links on this ?

      Regards

      Sireesha.

    Hi,

    I agree that it is worth to try a file system repository on this Documentum File Share.

    However I have some concerns about the performance of this kind of integration.

    I would expect that the Documentum File Share is allready a software tier wrapping the

    core documentum api.

    In addition a file system repository has some disadvantages if you are planning to change the repository content both in KM and in the origin (documentum) system.

    If you do that, the KM file system repository has to synchronize itself again and again.

    The repository (and sometimes the whole portal) may slow down dramatically.

    So give it a try but consider to either buy the documentum repository manager or write your own.

    See the following link to a nice code sample:

    https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/scn/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/fcc4b3c7-0701-0010-55ab-86e3ec0ce275

    Cheers

      Hi Frank,

      Thanks for your valuble reply.

      I would like to try with documentum own repository first as per the requirement.

      What needs to be done from portal side once we had the documentum repository. Is it like a package file? do we need to import it into system admin as usual. will it be like a normal KM repository in root folder of KM content.?

      What are all the products/services need to be installed in this case at documentum side? like Documentum content services for SAP Portal iViews, Documentum content services for SAP integration, documentum content services for repository managers, Documentum archiving services for SAP etc.,?

      Could please let me know?

      Regards

      Sireesha.
