We performed the following steps to connect a repository of a NetWeaver 2004s portal via WebDAV to a NetWeaver 2004 SPS 12 KM system:
- Creating an HTTP system for usage in the WebDAV Repository Manager
In Content Management Configuration we navigated to Global Services -> System Landscape Definitions -> Systems -> HTTP System and created a new HTTP system.
In this case, the portals did not belong to the same user domain, therefore, a user with read permissions in the connected repository was entered. It is also possible to forward the current authentication information to the remote server. In this case, leave the user and password entry fields empty.
The Server URL is the WebDAV URL of the repository to be connected. To get it, we displayed the details of the root folder, chose Properties and opened the tab Access Links.
- Creating a Cache for the WebDAV Repository
In CM Configuration we navigated to Utilities -> Caches -> Memory Cache and created a new cache.
- Creating a WebDAV Repository Manager
In CM Configuration we navigated to Repository Managers -> WebDAV Repository and created a new repository manager.
- Using it
Now the new repository is available in the KM system. It can be accessed via a KM Navigation iView or assigned to an index as data source . Create a crawler to make sure the index is updated at regular intervals.
