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. 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.
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). 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.
