Where are the actual documents stored in solution manager (KW)?


I have a question regarding Solution Manager and storing documentation.

When we in our process structure in a project uploads a word document

(as documentation), where are the file then physically stored?

I have checked the table SA01PHIO (a KW table), here I see a new entry every time I

upload a new word document (or other type of documentation). But this

table does not grow accordingly to the size of the word documents I

upload, so the physical document must be stored somewhere else in the


The description of field 'PHIO_ID' in table SA01PHIO is "Physical document", but since the field is of type char (size 32), then it can only be a link to the actual file?

We need to know where the documents are stored, so that we can plan our

storage strategy and database space management accordingly.

Anyone knows where the files are stored in the database?

Thanks in advance.

    I have exactly the same question as Kenneth, even though it was originally asked 3 years ago.

    We would like to store video files in Solman, describing the Business Processes. I need then to know where those files would be stored in order to request database space extension.

    Could anyone give some help on this matter?

    Thank you very much in advance.

    • The OBJID is the object id to retrieve the document from the content server which is defined by SOLARCONTENTDB in transaction OAC0. It is a content repository.

      In solar02 - click on URL under document attributes and it will show the direct URL link to access the physical document. You can paste it in browser to retrieve the document. It has the object id in the URL.
