|Oracle® Fusion Middleware Installation Guide for Oracle Enterprise Content Management Suite
11g Release 1 (11.1.1)
Part Number E14495-04
This chapter explains how to configure Oracle Universal Records Management (Oracle URM) in an Oracle WebLogic Server domain, in these topics:
After installation and startup, when you go to the URL for Oracle URM, you will get the postinstallation configuration page, described in Section 9.1.1, "Enabling Oracle URM Components." After completing that page and clicking the Submit button, you need to restart Oracle URM, as described in Section 10.3, "Restarting a Managed Server." It is installed with default installation level of minimal.
Oracle URM will start up again with an alert. Clicking the alert text displays the Records Management Setup Checklist, through which you can configure the Oracle URM installation level you want. For more information about setting the installation level, see Section 9.1.1, "Enabling Oracle URM Components." If you change the installation level, you need to restart the Oracle URM Managed Server and rebuild the index. For information about rebuilding the index, see "Working with the Search Index" in Oracle Fusion Middleware System Administrator's Guide for Oracle Content Server.
After you configure the installation level, you can configure other items on the Setup Checklist page. For more information, see Section 9.1.2, "Completing the Setup Checklist for Oracle URM."
The Enabled Features Page determines which Oracle URM components will be enabled for use.
The page depiction shows all options displayed.
Note:If you are using Oracle WebCenter with Oracle URM, enable the DOD component after WebCenterConfigure has been enabled and has had a chance to check in its conversion templates.
If you enable the DOD component first, you can create a rule that matches the documents created by WebCenterConfigure and assigns them a default category. The category could be based on the content IDs. For more information, see "Setting Up Workflows" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Setup Guide for Universal Records Management.
After making selections or if configuration options are changed (for example, switching from Baseline to Classified), restart Oracle Universal Records Management, as described in Section 10.3, "Restarting a Managed Server," and rebuild the Oracle Content Server index. For information about rebuilding the index, see "Working with the Search Index" in Oracle Fusion Middleware System Administrator's Guide for Oracle Content Server.
For information about the components enabled for each option, click the Info icon.

|Configure 'Profile Trigger' as Trigger Field||Used to determine the trigger for profiles used in searching and checking in content and physical items.|
When you use Oracle Text Search with Oracle Content Server, 32 optimized fields are allowed. When Oracle URM is installed, the number of optimized fields can exceed the 32-field limit.
To accommodate this limitation, if Oracle Text Search is configured as the search engine, Oracle URM sets its date fields to be nonsearchable. Because of this, Oracle URM date fields will not appear on search pages.
If you installed Oracle URM while using Oracle Text Search and later change search engines, you can configure the date fields to be searchable by using the Oracle Content Server Configuration Manager.
If you install URM without Oracle Text Search and later change your current search engine to Oracle Text Search, you must manually configure the date fields to be nonsearchable in the Oracle Content Server Configuration Manager.
To search auxiliary metadata in Oracle URM with Oracle Text, you must configure Oracle Content Server to use Oracle Text Search as the search engine. You can set Oracle Text Search on the Oracle UCM postinstallation configuration page or in the configuration file. For more information, see Section 5.3, "Configuring Oracle Text Search for Oracle Content Server."
If the Oracle URM Managed Server has an IBM DB2 data source, you need to set the
DynamicSections property value to at least
500 in the connection pool configuration for the data source. This setting can prevent a
To set connection pool property values for an IBM DB2 data source:
Log in to the Oracle WebLogic Server Administration Console, at the following URL:
adminServerHost, specify the name of the computer that hosts the Administration Server for your domain. For
adminServerPort, specify the listen port number for the Administration Server. The default number is
7001. For example:
To log in, supply the user name and password that were specified on the Configure Administrator User Name and Password screen in the configuration wizard.
Click Services in the navigation tree on the left.
Click JDBC in the Section column under Summary of Services.
Click Data Source in the Section column under Summary of Services: JDBC.
Click URDMS, or the JNDI name of the data source for the Oracle URM Managed Server, in the Data Sources table.
On the Settings page for the data source, click the Connection Pool tab.
In the Properties field, add the following lines to the list of properties to be passed to the JDBC driver:
createDefaultPackage=true replacePackage=true dynamicSections=500
Click the Save button.
