Services Preview functionality: When adding a service through the Component Wizard, you can now preview details about services. Information for a service can be viewed by selecting the new Preview button in the upper right corner of the Resource Selection dialog. When the Preview Information for SERVICE_NAME dialog is display ed, the online help for that service is available by clicking the Help button.
For information about accessing this new functionality, see step 1 in Section 3.3.3, "Creating a Custom Service using Component Wizard."
Extended User Attributes component services have been added.
Folios component services have been added.

The CHECKIN_NEW service has been revised to include information about the DirectReleaseNewCheckinDoc variable, which directs content items being checked in to bypass Inbound Refinery, workflow, and indexing.
The GET_ENVIRONMENT service has been revised to include information about the StartTime variable.
The DELETE_DOC service has been revised to show that it removes all revisions of a content item, not just a single revision.
The CHECKIN_SEL service has been revised to remove inaccurate information about metadata values not specified in the service call being inherited from the previous revision. Metadata values are not inherited from the previous revision. CHECKIN_UNIVERSAL and UPDATE_DOCINFO are the two services that inherit unspecified metadata values.
Location path names have been revised to reflect the new directory and file structure for a Content Server instance deployed to a WebCenter Content domain on an Oracle WebLogic Server application server.
WebCenter Content documentation uses the following terms when referring to variables in the directories associated with the WebCenter Content installation, configuration, and deployment:
IdcHomeDir: This variable refers to the
ucm/idc directory in the Oracle WebCenter Content home where the WebCenter Content server media is located. The server media can run Oracle WebCenter Content Server, Oracle WebCenter Content: Inbound Refinery, or Oracle WebCenter Content: Records software. This is essentially a read-only directory. The default location is
/ucm/idc. The variable portion of the default location can be changed, but the path cannot be changed from
DomainHome: This variable refers to the user-specified directory where a WebCenter Content application is deployed to run on an Oracle WebLogic Server application server. The
/bin directory contains the intradoc.cfg file and executables. The default location for
base_domain, but you can change the path and domain name (
base_domain) during the deployment of a WebCenter Content application to an application server.
short-product-id: This variable refers to the type of WebCenter Content server deployed to an application server. This name is used as the context root (default
HttpRelativeWebRoot configuration value). Possible values include:
cs (Oracle WebCenter Content Server)
ibr (Oracle WebCenter Content: Inbound Refinery)
urm (Oracle WebCenter Content: Records)
IntradocDir: This variable refers to the root directory for configuration and data files specific to a Content Server instance that is part of a WebCenter Content application deployed to an application server. This Idoc Script variable is configured for one type of Content Server instance: Content Server (
cs), Inbound Refinery (
ibr), or Records (
urm). This directory can be located elsewhere, but the default location is
short-product-id. The specified directory must be an absolute path to the instance directory and must be unique to a particular server or node. The directory files include startup files (intradoc.cfg and executables).
