Connectivity to IXOS in EP6

Hi guys,

Has EP6 adopted IXOS as one of the supported standard repository which can be used by KM? Do we need to create a custom API to retrieve the document indexes in IXOS? If so, which is a better way to implement:

1. Create the API to use indexing in TREX to talk to IXOS.


2. Create the API to read indexes from IXOS and retrieve the documents into TREX.

Is there a lot of work involved to create the API if it is needed?

Would appreciate also if there are other methods available which can 'talk' to IXOS.

    Hi Aaron,

    where are the documents meta data stored in IXOS?

    DocuLink or others?

    We want to integrate Documents stored on IXOS eConServer, metadata maintained with DocuLink into our Enterprise Portal.

    IXOS is about to certify a repository manager for the RM API on SAP Portal.

    In the first steps this is a read-only repository manager.

    Best Regards,

    Hi Aaron,

    IXOS has developed a repository manager to their DocuLink add-on software in R/3. The RM is read-only and respects the ACLs that are valid in DocuLink (which again are taken from R/3). Search & Classification (by using TREX indices) and read-only KM services can be applied to it.

    The RM is not yet published on iViewStudio but you can contact Thorsten Fischer at IXOS ( directly for functions and licensing.
