Step 7 Defining Document Management Repositories
Oracle Workflow provides seamless open integration with Oracle's third party document management (DM) integration partners.
Oracle Workflow communicates with these DM systems through a web server agent interface. You should be able to identify your DM system's web server using the syntax <protocol>://<server:port>/.
To register the DM system with Oracle Workflow, use the Oracle Workflow Document Nodes web page to identify the DM system as a document node. Oracle Workflow uses the document node as the gateway to a specific document management system and uses the information defined in the node to construct the URLs that display the document management system documents.
Context: You need to perform this step only once.
To Define a Document Node
Alternatively, if you have workflow administrator privileges, you can connect directly to the Document Management Nodes web page:
Attention: These are secured pages, so if you have not yet logged on as a valid user in the current web session, you will be prompted to do so before the page appears.
2. The Document Management Nodes web page displays a summary of any previously defined document management nodes. The summary displays the DM system node name, DM system version number, node ID, node description, and web server for the DM system. Also shown is the name of the DM system product, the DM product vendor and the DM system version number.
3. You can click on a node name link to edit the details of a node or choose Create Node to define a new node in the Document Nodes web page.
4. In the Document Nodes web page, enter or edit the name and description of the node.
5. Enter or edit the web server agent for the document management system. The syntax should be <protocol>://<server:port>.
6. Choose the document management product name for this node. This is the name that represents the node for all users who wish to link documents to their workflow processes.
7. Choose OK to update or define the node.
Once you define a node, the browser returns you to a reloaded Document Management Nodes web page. Oracle Workflow assigns a node ID for the new node.
8. You can also delete a node by clicking on the Delete icon in the Delete column.
Caution: Before you delete a node, you should ensure that no Document-type attributes currently reference the node.
