The ICE(Information and Content Exchange)  protocol regulates the exchange of content between a subscriber and syndicate (provider).The export of contents can be done in two ways, online and offline. In this is blog I take up a scenario of transferring “News” Content from one portal(A) to the other portal(B) using offline channel. In the next blog I will be explaining about the online channel. Prerequisites1. The user must have Content Manager role in the Subscribing Portal(B).2. The user must have Content Administrator, System Administrator role in the Syndicate Portal(A). Steps1. In Portal(A) by Default, Content Exchange Repository(/ice folder) is hidden in the KM Repository. This can be made visible  by System Administration>System Configuration>Repository Managers>click Show Advanced Options>Content Exchange Repository – uncheck “Hide in Root Folder” and save. image2. Goto ice folder located in Content Administration>KM Content>ice>Syndicator>Global Offer. Then select Folder>New>Link> select the News folder and click OK.A shortcut folder icon with the name News will be visible in the current window.

3. Download the Complete Package or Differential Package(fullupdate.zip/incremental.zip) file into your local hard disk by clicking on the link for Complete Package or Differential Package. This file contains all the contents which are need to be exported. 4. Login into the other portal(B). Goto Content Management>Content Exchange>Package Upload and upload the zip file (fullcontrol.zip or incremental.zip). It automatically creates the folder,files in the same location as it is in the other Portal(A).    image   Now, the news content whichever uploaded will be visible the NewsBrowser iView created in this portal(B).The same procedure can be used to exchange any other contents from the portal.It allows maximum of 2GB of contents in single upload.

    Thanks for the blog, but all you’re showing here is already explained in the following pdf:
    https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/802c1739-d270-2910-ad9f-f369de07c1bf
    Your blog about the online version might still be very interesting, though, as the pdf doesn’t cover everything: What’s the (real) difference between pull and push: Will, in a push set-up, the sender only transmit information when documents have been changed while in a pull set-up the receiving portals always query the sender? What about difference in CPU usage or stability when comparing push vs. pull – we’ve had massive CPU utilisation during content push on the sender node, irrelevant of the amount of content changed.
    I really appreciate any member’s will to share information and knowledge by writing blogs, but please try to add information beyond what can be found in the common information libraries!
    Thanks and all the best,
    Fabian Henckmann

    Thanks for this blog, I searched for days for a simple, straight to the point instruction on using ICE. I have updated the contents of the instructions with new screen shots for EP 7, as the process is slightly different, however, I do not know how to post the updated instructions?

    Again, thanks!

    In point 2 you say …”2. Goto ice folder located in Content Administration>KM Content>ice>Syndicator>Global Offer.
    Then select Folder>New>Link> select the News folder and click OK.A shortcut folder icon with the name News will be visible in the current window.
    Might I do this? … Folder>New>Link> select the “News document” instead of “News folder” and click OK.
