General Tab

Use this tab to enter the connection settings for logging in to the FileNet P8 Content Engine object store.

Option Description
Activate This combo box allows you to activate the component according to a condition. This combo box is enabled only in the eConnector configuration dialog box.
Pass through Select this check box to make the component pass documents to the next component in the process. This check box is enabled only in the eConnector configuration dialog box.
Content Engine web service URL Enter the URL of the Content Engine web service. This URL should be in the following format:
protocol://host name or ip-address:port

With the following parameters:

  • protocol — This is http by default.
  • host name or ip-address — This specifies the application server where the Content Engine application is hosted.
  • port — This is the number of the port that the application server uses to communicate with clients (7001 by default).
The following example URL uses an IP address: http://192.178.223.10:7001. The Web service path, such as "/wsi/FNCEWS40MTOM/", will be automatically appended to this URL.
User name Specify this value to connect to the object store in the format that is required by the FileNet P8 Content Engine. For the Directory Service or Active Directory security provider it is usually the short name (login name) of the Directory Server user. For example, FnAdmin. You can click the button to open the Select User dialog box which allows searching for the user on the FileNet P8 server. Search request will use the currently entered user name and password to connect to the server.
Note: The button is enabled only if you have already connected to the FileNet P8 Content Engine. The first time that you connect you have to manually enter the Content Engine web service URL, User name and Password.
Password Specifies the user password to connect to the object store. You cannot use RRTs in this text box.
Obtain password via RRT Select this check box is you want to obtain the password from an RRT from previous components. When this check box is selected, the Password text box is disabled. The component then obtains the password from the RRT at run time to connect to the FileNet P8 Content Engine.
Password RRT Enter an RRT of another component which will be used for connection to the FileNet P8 Content Engine.
Note: You should never explicitly specify a password in the Password RRT text box, since the value of this field is not encrypted.

At configuration time the component always uses the value of the Password text box as the user password for connection to the FileNet P8 Content Engine even if the Obtain password via RRT is selected.

Object store Enter the name or identifier of the FileNet P8 Content Engine object store to route documents into. You can enter the name of the object store manually or click the button to open the Select Object Store dialog box, which allows selection of an object store.
Target folder Enter the path to the target folder to route documents into. You manually enter the path preceded by the slash mark (/) character (for example, /Folder1/SubFolder2).
Note: When the Select Target Folder dialog box opens, it expands to display the currently selected folder. However, if the currently selected folder is invalid for the actual folders tree, it expands as many folders in the path that it finds in the tree.
Create folders if not exists If this check box is selected, the component will create the specified folder if it does not exist. If this check box is not selected and the specified path to the target folder does not exist, the component will display an error message at run time. By default, this check box is selected. Click the button next to this check box to open New Folder Options dialog box, which allows you to set up parameters for creating the folder. If several folders are created, all of them will share the same parameters.
