Process Management API — Branch Content timeout

Introduction

BranchContent represents a “Read API” to the branch elements. BranchContent is modeled as a media resource which exports the binary data in the internal JSON file format containing branch elements. Usually if the whole Brach is very large, a response with timeout will be expected. The purpose of this article is to show the solutions.

 

Solutions

1)  Increase the timeout setting.

see step 1 in 2527822 – Troubleshooting for SAP Enable Now – Solution Manager Sync.

 

2) Using scope. The API has scope as input parameter.

Create a few scopes in the Solution Documentation UI and assign them with different node structures.

 

3) Use the filter option mentioned in 2715447 – Filter options in Process Management API.

Property CategoryId supporting query option $filter to enable clients to optimize requests.

 

Conclusion

As the branch content may grow with time, it is strongly recommended to use a combination 2) and 3).
