Migrating SAPOffice attachment from fileNet to SharePoint

All

I'm working on the a project with a customer to migrate SAP office documents (GOS attachments) from fileNet to SharePoint . customer has already exported the documents out of FileNet on to the Fileshare. My question is to,how to link those documents with SAP once it is imported into SharePoint. I know these attachments (GOS-->create attachment) stored in SAP cluster tables (I-e SRGBTBREL,SOOD etc) .Any insight you guys provide will be appreciated.

thanks

Faisal

    any help guys?

    I have found a SAPNote below but it seems like relocating from one category to another. I'm looking for a program which will update the attachment links within SAP. Not sure if anything available out of the box from SAP.

    Dear Faisal,

    Connecting SAP to Sharepoint for what concerns Attachments is basically never out of the box. And as Sharepoint does not support the Archivelink protocol, you always need a specific connector to support Sharepoint integration.

    For that purpose you can make use of the YAC add-on. It can connect SAP to Sharepoint and will store attachments with their original filename into automatically generated folder structures (on basis of configuration). It will also simplify your migration process as you would just need a simple program sending the exported documents to YAC, and YAC would then complete the job.

    It also has many other functionalities around attachments, one of them being to allow any attachment to be automatically attached to any object in SAP so that it is then visible in all screens. This works for all types of attachments (SAPOffice, GOS, Archivelink, etc.) and in all screens (GUI, Fiori, GUIHtml, WebDynpro, etc.)

    Thanks who reply . Sorry took a while to get back to this .

    The way we did it is to migrate the exported docs (fileNet) to the SharePoint and make sure all the specific SAP related attributes columns are intact . These SAP columns like X-ContRep, x-DocID and x-compID are the key to make the retrieval(migrated docs) work from SAP. We left SAP link as it is and then just point the SAP connection to SharePoint respository. This works like a charm :)

    FYI, we used Gimmal product DM4SAP as a middleware b/w SAP and SharePoint.

    Hi Faisal,

    question: When a new document is attached to a SAP transaction (with GOS or ArchiveLink or Fiori) is it also automatically sent to SharePoint then ? To which folder ? And does it also have metadata ?

    Rgds,

    Karim

    Hi Karim

    Yes, with Gimmal product DM4SAP , you can archive a document to a SharePoint Document library. The product is capable of getting metadata from SAP. You can use any SAP client application KPro client , SAPGUI /fiori etc. thanks
