Be the First to Know: New SCN Library RSS Feed

Want to be the first in the know? Subscribe to the new SAP Community Network Library RSS Feed. The new feed is updated every time a new SCN library asset (article, How to Guide, demo, eLearning and so on) has been uploaded.

How is this different than the existing feeds?

The existing feeds available from the articles by date and eLearning by date pages are based on the article or eLearning’s authored date per the document title page or content submission system ticket.  Huh?  Lets say an article was written on 15 December 2010 and submitted on the 16th: it might only have been uploaded to the SCN library 5 January 2011 because it had to be first reviewed & approved by a moderator, and then go through last minute formatting.  Regardless of the publication process, the articles date is still 15 December 2010 and that’s the date you’ll see it under in the SCN library catalog and corresponding RSS feed. For this reason, subscribers might not see ‘new’ content because it’s stuck at the bottom of a page or RSS feed due to the lag.

The new SCN Library RSS Feed is sorted by the date an asset was uploaded (5 Jan 2011 for the example above) so that subscribers will have a chance to see everything as it’s added, regardless of it’s authoring date.

We hope this is more helpful for all our stakeholders and ensures that no one misses anything new!

  • Hi,

    very nice. Just linked SCN Library (All) New! to my firefox bookmarks.
    Unfortunately
    SCN Articles & Other Documents     By authored date     
    and
    SCN eLearning     By authored date

    do not work, just show an xml source preceded by message “This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.”

    Thnak you,

    Clemens

      • Hmm. Firefox 3.6.13.
        The first link opens a firefox popup with title ‘Subscribe with live bookmark’ and the input fields for name and folder association.
        The working link’s file starts with “” followed by the rss tag.
        The not working files start directly with the RSS tag.

        As I do not understand more about xml and RSS technique, I just noticed this difference but can’t explain the relevance.

        Maybe you can clear cache, remove cookies and try again.

        Thank you!

    • The second and third links were broken XML when I checked them as well (fx 3.6 again).  However, I copied the links into the ‘Add A Subscription’ field, and its working fine there.

      HTH
