General tab

On this tab, enter general attributes of the repository where the documents will be stored. You can use RRTs in the text boxes on this tab.

Option Description
Activate Select this check box to make the component active. If this check box is not selected, the component just passes the input document to the subsequent components. This check box is available only in the Documentum eConnector configuration dialog.
Use DFC Select this check box if you want to use EMC Documentum Foundation Classes (DFC) for connection to the Documentum server. In this case, you should specify the address of Documentum Primary Connection Broker in the Server box. By default, Documentum Primary Connection Broker uses port 1489, however you can specify another port number.
Note: If you use DFC for connection to the server, then do not specify the protocol (http:// or https://) in the Server box.

By default, this check box is not selected and the component uses EMC Documentum Foundation Services (DFS) for connection to the Documentum server. In this case, the Server means the address of the web services on the Documentum server side.

Note: To use DFC for connection, Documentum DFC Runtime Environment has to be installed in the system.
Server Enter the URL of the server where documents will be archived, in the following form: http://server_address:port number/, where server_address is the name of a computer in a local network or the address of a web server. The form https://server_address:port number/ can also be used for the server URL if the Documentum server supports SSL connection and the client has a valid certificate.

The Documentum 7.0 server has its particularities: the user should specify the folder with DFC web service on the server, so the Server field should be filled out in the following form: http://server_address: port number /site folder name , where site folder name is the name of the folder containing DFS web service for Documentum in Java Application Server.

Examples:
  • http://localhost:9080/ (for Documentum 6.x)
  • https://Documentum:9080/ (for Documentum 6.x)
  • http://www.documentum.myserver.com:9080/ (for Documentum 6.x)
  • http://localhost:9080/emc-dfs (for Documentum 7.0)
  • http://www.documentum.myserver.com:9080/emc-dfs (for Documentum 7.0)
Note: Do not specify protocol (http:// or https://) if you use DFC for communications with the server.

By default, the component uses EMC Documentum Foundation Services (DFS) for connection to the Documentum server, and the Server value means the address of the web services on the Documentum server side.

If the Use DFC check box is selected, the component will use EMC Documentum Foundation Classes (DFC) for connection to the Documentum server, and the Server value means the address of the Documentum Primary Connection Broker. By default, the Documentum Primary Connection Broker uses port 1489, however you can specify another port number.

Docbase Enter the name of the Documentum database where document content and metadata will be stored. You can select a database by clicking the browse button (...). This option is required.
Note: When you work with the Documentum server version 6.5 SP1, the list of docbases cannot be displayed without authentication. To display the docbases list in this case, you should enter the correct docbase name, user name and password.
User Name Enter the user name that will be used to connect to the Docbase. The user has to be registered in the Documentum server. This option is required.
Password Enter the password for the specified user name. This option is required.

You can use an RRT in this field.

This field supports and returns values for encrypted by restricted RRTs. For more information, see Encrypted Field RRTs.

Domain If required, enter the domain for the specified user name.
Path Enter the location within the Docbase at which incoming documents will be stored. You can select a folder by clicking the browse button (...). If the folder path does not exist then it will be created dynamically at run time.
Note: The component can create new folder path only if the user has such permissions on the server.
Folder type Specify the type of folder.
Run Enter the name of the workflow that will be started for routed documents. Click the browse button (...) to select a workflow from available ones for the specified path. If the path is not specified, this dialog displays all available workflow templates stored in the docbase.
Timeout Specify upload timeout, in minutes. If any problems occur while uploading, or a very big file is being uploaded, the component waits for this time for response from the server and when the timeout expires, the component aborts uploading and rejects the document. It is recommended to increase timeout value when sending big documents or when sending documents into the cabinets that already contain a large number of documents.
Pass through If this check box is selected, the component will pass documents to the next component in the process. If a document fails to be routed, it is rejected regardless of the value of this option. This check box is available only in the Documentum eConnector configuration dialog.
