Hi All,

I wanted to know what features SAP CMS provides and what SAP CMIS provides.

I am verymuhch interested to know how CMS and CMIS integrate with SAP Protal role.

I know in CMS we can give read write and folder create permission to a specific group or role , but is this possible with SAP HANA CMIS?

Thank You.

Hi Arvind,

If the question is more technical than the high level understanding of SAP Provisioning of Hana Cloud platform my few cents on this are -

1 - CMIS is an open standard for content management systems.

2 - SAP Content management system (CMS) is sap's content management which is a layer on top of ECM Service hosted in SAP PO.

3 - In Hana cloud platform Content management is achieved using Document Services .

4 - Document service operates on ECM Services -

     Creating a sample app -

InitialContext ctx = new InitialContext();

  String lookupName = "java:comp/env/" + "EcmService";

  EcmService ecmSvc = (EcmService) ctx.lookup(lookupName);

  try {

  // connect to my repository

  openCmisSession = ecmSvc.connect(uniqueName, secretKey);


  catch (CmisObjectNotFoundException e) {

  // repository does not exist, so try to create it

  RepositoryOptions options = new RepositoryOptions();





  // should be created now, so connect to it

  openCmisSession = ecmSvc.connect(uniqueName, secretKey);


Hope this clarifies your Doubt.

Thanks & Regards
