The connector is informally also referred to as SharePoint WebDAV Connector (SWC). Using the SWC it is now possible to integrate unstructured content particularly Microsoft Office documents that are stored in Windows Sharepoint Services into the Knowledge Management capabilities of SAP NetWeaver using the WebDAV repository manager. SAP Portal users are able to perform all tasks like viewing, changing and moving documents that are stored in WSS using the standard WebDAV protocol. It is also possible to maintain the (custom) properties of documents stored in WSS. Using SAP’s SSO22KerbMap Module it is also possible to achieve Single Sign-On so that the portal users do not have to maintain their windows user credentials to access the Sharepoint Services Server as a WebDAV ressource. In our SAP TechEd Session UPE207 How To Integrate Windows SharePoint Services with SAP NetWeaver Knowledge Management Capabilities in Las Vegas and Amsterdam we will show how the WebDAV connector needs to be configured and we will demonstrate the benefits and effective usage of knowledge management capabilities of SAP NetWeaver together with Microsoft SharePoint Services.
The Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) Connector for WebDAV from Microsoft is now available for download from the following Microsoft Web Site: http://www.microsoft-sap.com/zip/wsswebdavconnector.zip.
