Guidance needed for KM and Collaboration

Hi All,

I am new to the EP platform.I would be grateful if anybody can help me out with these questions:

1)When I have EP 6.0 installed,does that mean 'Collaboration' capabilities under 'people Integration' are also available to me?

2)If yes,how and where do I start for the 'collaboration' functionality.How do I set up a virtual room for sharing documents.

3)If 'collaboration' requires separate installation from EP6.0,then how do I install it?

thanx in advance,

Prasanna

    Hi Prasanna,

    to specify PK's answer more clearly for someone who is new to EP.

    1. When you install EP6.0 you have the option to install the Platform only or EP6.0 Platform and KMC (Knowledge Management and Collaboration).

    2. Installing also KMC you have all the collaboration functionalities in PCD roles. You have to assign yourself this roles (com.sap.netweaver.coll.*) in order to use the collaboration rooms. i.e.: After assigning the role com.sap.netweaver.coll.CollaborationRoomCreation you can go on Collaboration -> Rooms -> Room Creation in order to create a collaboration room for sharing documents.

    3. The most important thing is that after the Installation of EP6.0 Platform and KMC you have to do initial configuration tasks as described in the Administrator Guide on help.sap.com/ep -> Collaboration. Without this tasks you can not use Instant Messaging, Application Sharing or other collaboration features.

    Hope that clarifies things,

    Robert

    Hi Prasanna,

    Here are my answers.

    1. You have to install Knowledge Management after you install Portal to access Collaboration.

    2. If you have installed the KM, then add com.sap.netweaver.coll.* roles to access Collaboration related functionality within Portal.

    3. KM cannot be installed on its own. It is always installed with the Portals.

    Hope this helps.

    - PK
