  What's New in Content Integration Platform for EMC Documentum

This release includes the capability to publish data from:

         EMC Documentum to Oracle WebCenter Sites (formerly known as FatWire Content Server)

         Oracle WebCenter Sites (formerly known as FatWire Content Server) to EMC Documentum - web content, the following asset types are supported:

o    Basic Assets

o    Flex Parents and Flex Assets

o    Page Assets

o    Static List Recommendations

         Oracle WebCenter Sites 11gR1 | Community (User Generated data for comments and reviews) to EMC Documentum


  Installation Notes

         Content Integration Platform integrates with

o    Content Server 7.5 Patch 4+

o    EMC Documentum 6.5 SP3


        There are two properties in catalog.xml that can be used to change the amount of data that is processed in one batch sent from your source system to the Content Server target, these properties are:

o    maxItemsPerSet=16

o    maxTotalSize=33554432

maxItemsPerSet indicates the amount of files that will be processed in each batch - the default value is 16
maxTotalSize indicates the total size of the batch that will be processed at once - the default value is 32mb in bytes


Depending on your system performance and the amount of data that you are publishing through CIP, you can change these numbers to suit your needs.


         Cluster sync must be enabled for CIP to work correctly with Content Server: ft.sync in futuretense.ini must be appropriately set

         The ThreadPoolCapacity should be increased in the replication section in facilities.xml to achieve parallel performance while publishing more than one publication. The value should be equal to or less than the number of publications.



  Known Limitations

Oracle to Documentum Content Integration

         Content not originating in FatWire Content Server is not archived

         Oracle WebCenter Sites: Community assets must be published so that CIP can archive them to Documentum. A sample event is provided as part of the product download to automate this process. "Approval Event Package for UGC Assets" is located in the \Misc directory.

Publishing from Documentum to FatWire Content Server

         Assets are created in Content Server based on the default permissions set. Site users, except site administrators should have read-only access to the replicated content. This can be achieved by setting permissions to the top-most parent assets.

         Required attributes in Content Server definitions will need to be mapped.

         The Content Server Site must be created prior to initializing the publication. The synchronization process will fail if the site does not exist.

         Schema replication will not be automatically performed. Corresponding asset types, definitions and attributes must be created in Content Server

         Changes to the mapping will only take place after a restart of the agent.

         CIP will publish the latest version of a document

         User replication is not supported.

         Stopping csagentservices stops all processes from running, at this time, stopping a specific process is not possible.

         The synchronization interval is set in seconds with possible values from 1 to 2147483648

         If assets are revision tracked or have associations, issuing the unpublish command will not unpublish the checked out or associated assets, they must be manually removed from Content Server. Implementing workflow events will provide notification of assets that failed to delete. This will also be the case should assets fail to delete due to any other errors, for example, loss of connection, etc..

         Prior to using the "cipcommander unpublish all" command, you should change the bulk synchronization value for each link to 0 to ensure that during this unpublishing process, the resynchronization does not take place which would result in the deleted assets being republished. 

         Document names that are longer than 64 characters will be truncated to the first 64 characters when published to Content Server

         Documentum v6 web services layer (DFS) must be running for CIP to operate correctly

         Documentum virtual documents are not supported with this release.

         Documentum document renditions are not supported with this release; they will not be synchronized or published.

         Documentum document names will appear in Content Server with the extension repeated. For example, file1.doc.doc this does not affect functionality


  Known Issues

Oracle to Documentum Content Integration

(#22944) Assets which inherit attributes from a Parent are not exported automatically when parent is edited and republished. You need to approve the child assets.

Publishing from Documentum to FatWire Content Server

(#18374) The Agent Log will continue to increase as long as the agent is running, it is important that you either backup and then delete the log file manually or restart the agent to clean the entries

(#17705) The Agent Log is recreated upon restart. Backup the log prior to restart if you wish to retain the data

(#20356) Simultaneously publishing assets to Content Server and unpublishing assets from Content Server using CIP has the potential to cause a race condition, it is advised that before issuing an unpublish command, the user check to ensure that no synchronizations are in process.

(#20332) Publishing files from the file system that do not contain file extensions may result in Out of Bounds Exception seen in the Content Server futuretense.txt. The files are published to Content Server and this can be safely ignored.

(#20117) When unpublishing a link that includes a large number of documents, the agent log and csagentservices log will show errors during the retry attempts.
