Oracle WebCenter Content: Imaging integrates electronic document storage, retrieval, and annotation with business processes to facilitate document use across an enterprise. Documents are uploaded into a repository managed by Oracle WebCenter Content using an application within Imaging. Applications are predefined by you based on your business need. The application used to upload the document is chosen based on the type of document being uploaded. For example, one application would be used to upload an invoice and a different application would be used to upload a contract. The application determines the metadata that is associated with a document, as well as security permissions to the document and any document annotations. This guide details how to define applications and searches, connect to a workflow server to integrate with other business processes, and configure Imaging to best meet your company needs.
