Downloading Solution Manager documents in mass through Knowledge Workbench
I posted this in another tread that was closed, but a co-worked recommended I post a new thread so others are encouraged to provide feedback on the process.
Following the process outlined by another user (Markus Mueller) from their blog linked below, I was able to download Solution Manager documents in mass to my PC from a project I specified using the Knowledge Workbench.
Because of the naming convention my organization uses, we are able to pull documents by specific business processes.
Without a strict naming convention, the tool is not quite as useful but can still be utilized.
I also discovered after exporting to my machine, that documents created from templates within our system itself adopted the generic template names instead of their actual names from the repository.
The names were accurate in the knowledge workbench screen but were changed after exporting to my machine.
Documents not created from templates, but uploaded into the system adopted the proper names after being exported.
SAP Note (405481/2011) has been opened to hopefully address this for our system.
Hopefully others find this process as useful as we did.
After the note is addressed, this functionality will be incredibly useful.
Please let me know if anyone else tries this and how it works for you!
