Setting Up the Repository Manager for BW Documents and BW Metadata

Documents and metadata created in SAP BW (especially documentation for metadata) can be integrated into the Knowledge Manager of the SAP Enterprise Portal using the Repository Manager. There they are displayed together with other documents for the end user in a directory structure.

The documents are located in the BW system. The Repository Managers enable access to these documents within the portal using Knowledge Management. The variegated functions of Knowledge Management can be applied to these documents (feedback, rating, text search and so on).

The Repository Managers for BW documents and BW metadata are especially useful for two scenarios:

· BEx Web Application as a Link in Knowledge Management .

· BW documents and BW metadata.


Note that Repository Managers cannot be used for navigating in Knowledge Management unconditionally. Because of the flat folder hierarchy, a directory can contain a very large number of objects (for example, all queries for a system) and displaying the documents in a KM navigation iView can lead to problems in terms of performance.

For more current information, see SAP note 702350.

Procedure

1. Log on to the portal.

2. Start the iView System Administration ® System Configuration ® Knowledge Management ® Content Management.

3. Choose Content Management ® Repository Managers.

4. Under Classes, choose BW Document Repository.

5. Create a new instance of the BW Document Repository and choose New.

6. Enter settings as required. For more information on what the individual parameters mean, see Repository Manager for BW Documents.

7. Choose OK to save the settings.

8. Under Classes, choose BW Metadata Repository.

9. Create a new instance of the BW Metadata Repository and choose New.

10. Enter settings as required. For more information on what the individual parameters mean, see Repository Manager for BW Metadata.

11. Choose OK to save the settings.

Check

Start the iView Content Administration ® KM Content. Open the Knowledge Management folder for the BW documents and the folder for the BW metadata. The names of the folders correspond to the prefixes entered above.
