How to use IDM Content Manager OnDemand

This component routes documents to the IBM Content Manager OnDemand system by creating import files. These files are then interpreted by the IBM Content Manager OnDemand system and contain the document and any specified meta-data (fields).

The component does not require a client application in order to function. Instead, all import files are written to a "share" directory, where the IBM Content Manager OnDemand server picks them up and imports them accordingly. The configuration dialog of the component allows you to configure all relevant settings quickly and easily on one screen.

An example of the component usage: Sending captured documents with metadata to the IBM Content Manager OnDemand system.

  1. Configure a workflow with AutoCapture component and IBM Content Manager OnDemand component.
  2. In the IBM Content Manager OnDemand configuration set the codepage, application, output path for the import files, remote path for IBM Content Manager OnDemand service.
  3. Configure field values to be passed with RRTs.
  4. Run the process.
A user sends documents to the workflow and specifies the field values. The IBM CM OnDemand component generates 3 import files that contain the input document and configured meta-data. These files are then picked up by the IBM Content Manager OnDemand service and saved in the specified application with the specified meta-data for storage.
