SAP Easy Document Management installing and setting

Hi,

We are in the middle of installing the content server for DMS. Also I'd like to install SAP Easy Document Managemnt, so that my end users can access the files easily. I have a hard time finding documentation on the installation of EDMS and step by step detail of what to do.

From reading some of the notes, I think I have to

1. Download the EDMS software to my PC (will also have to install on each user's computer).

2. Also it said you have to make the settings in Customizing for DMS has to be done (but doesn't say what settings ????)

Questions,

1. Can anyone tell me where I can get the detail information about how to install and

2. Do you have any documentations on what to do with the settings in Customizing for DMS so that I can use the EDMS?

3. How do I handle the diff SAP Environments with this EDMS ?

Thank you,

Sam

    Hi Samantha

    I don't think there is much in the line of documentation on this. Unfortunately, for most of the DMS consultants, its been a learn through trial and error process, but if you are fairly competent technically, a lot of it is not too difficult.

    1. Not much information unfortunately.

    2. You will need to create an FOL document type if it doesn't exist already. ECC6 came standard with the correct EasyDMS configuration but earlier versions of SAP were not setup correctly. There are also additional authorisation applicable to easydms. If you are not sure what they are you can do an auth trace when creating a document in easydms and it should give you them, but they are RFC auth's and hierarchy creation auths.

    3. Difficult to say without knowing the environments. There are some limitations with EasyDMS that may affect the DMS design, for example, you can't insert enhancements on classification because they don't appear. (or link to check tables).

    Regards,

    Hi,

    Download the zip and install it by double clickin on setup.exe. Once it is installed on the system check the installation folder - there you will find some pdf files which have complete documentation.

    it is very easy to install - just an exe needs to be executed.

    For the settings etc - once you have a DMS setup in backend - you need not do anything special for easyDMS. IT takes the settings set in backend.

    Regards,

    Anu

    Hi Sam,

    maybe the SDN WIKI area under

    https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/scn/wiki?path=/display/plm/sapDocumentManagement+%2528CA-DMS%2529

    is useful for your questions too. Please see the different pages at the EasyDMS area for installation infos.

    Best regards,

    Christoph
