Re-assigning link to a Document attachment across platforms?

Hello Everyone,

I would like your advise on the following solution I am trying to design. Currently we have a central content server and several different SAP back end systems, lets call them SAP system A and B for this discussion. I would like to send a document the content server from SAP A, and then at a later point in time assign that same attachment to a document in SAP system B.

Currently both systems are set up where I can manually attach documents (for example in transaction FB03). I am able to assign the attachment to another SAP document in the same client using FM ARCHIV_CONNECTION_INSERT, but I have not been able to figure out how to do something like this between 2 different SAP platforms.

Thank you all in advance for any help you can give me.

    Hi Matthew

    I assume given the function module that you are using archivelink. (store business document option in GOS)

    I don't believe its possible to link to more than one SAP system for the same document. You can do this with SAP DMS however because its done as object linking. The only alternative is to use a third party product like Open Text to do this.

    Are the system's copies of each other? What types of documents are you trying to link?

    • Matt,

      There is one workable solution for your situation. If the content servers you have are "unsecured" (this is a setting that can be changed using t-code CSADMIN), you'll be able to access the file from the Content Server using a URL. The format of the URL is


      For Example:


      Use the same GOS menu and instead of creating an attachment, create a URL. You should be able to launch the document by clickin the URL you just added unde the "Attachments List".

      Good luck!
