How to integrate external DMS to SAP

Dear All,

Like SAP has a DMS,We have developed a 3rd party DMS which has additional functionality

now i want to integrate this 3rd part DMS with SAP .

Using Tcode OAC0,OACT and CSADMIN we can configure only external content server(HTTP) but we can not connect to 3rd party DMS.

Is there any work arround so that we can connect SAP tcode (CV04N screen which is used to find documents) to 3rd party DMS.

Is there any SAP functionality using which we can integrate to 3rd party DMS?


please suggest me what can be possible solutions ??

    • Sandeep,

      I am not sure if you would need all the functionalities that the SAP DMS solution offers. If you just need to search and viiew files from an external application, you may try the t-code OADFFCUST to create what's called a Document Area. There are certain steps you have to follow (Assuming that your custom application has a RDBMS behind it to manage the metadata of the documents):

      1) Create an RFC connection to the external application/database

      2) Implement the ABAP classes for

      a) Search document - implement class IF_ALINK_QUERY. Use CL_ALINK_QUERY as an example

      b) Display the document properties and the corresponding file. - implement class IF_ALINK_HITLIST. Use CL_ALINK_HITLIST_TREE as an example.

      This development would require good understandanding of RFC communication and ABAP.

      Once the document area is defined with the corresponding custom classes for search and display, you would be able to search for the documents using the t-code OA_FIND.

      Hope this helps......
