AppXtender (CMIS Binding)
The AppXtender connection type is a CMIS Binding that connects Grooper to the ApplicationXtender document management platform for import and export operations.
ApplicationXtender is a content management system utilizing Microsoft.NET capabilities to store documents and associated metadata online. It stores documents in file cabinets it calls "applications". Creating an AppXtender connection will allow you to access an existing AX file cabinet. Once connected, you can import, export, search, and browse documents from Grooper.
Prior to 2.72, you would have used the old CMIS Import and CMIS Export Providers. The old CMIS Import still exists in Grooper as a deprecated component. CMIS Export has been split into Mapped and Unmapped Export providers (Mapped Export being similar to how CMIS Export formerly functioned). For increased functionality in 2.72, create an AppExtender Connection Type and utilize the new CMIS Import and CMIS Export capabilities.
In order to connect to ApplicationXtender in versions before 2.72, you had to create a Grooper Service to facilitate the connection. You no longer have to do that utilizing the AppXtender CMIS binding. Creating a new connection to AppXtender is now as simple as creating a new CMIS Connection and editing a few properties.
How To: Create a New AppXtender Connection
Add the CMIS Connection
Expand the "Infrastructure" node. Right click the "CMIS Connections" folder. Mouse over "Add" and select "CMIS Connection...".
Set the Connection Type
In the "Connection Properties" panel, drop down the list of available "Connection Types" and select "AppXtender".
Enter the Connection Information
Expand the "Connection Settings" heading. Enter your web services URL, data source, user name and password in the appropriate fields.
|AX Web Services URL||//http:~/~/localhost/ (% style="background-color:transparent; font-size:1.3rem" %)AppXtenderServices/ AxServicesInterface.asmx//||Enter your ApplicationXtender WebServices URL here.|
|Data Source Name||Enter which data source in ApplicationXtender you wish to connect to.|
|User Name||Enter your user name you use to login to ApplicationXtender.|
|Password||Enter the password for said user name.|
|Content Mode||ImageOnly||This controls how document content is extracted from ApplicationXtender. It can be one of three values.
|Extended Properties||(0 values)||You can choose from a list of optional properties from ApplicationXtender to be included on your documents. The options are as follows
|Request Full Text License||False||As "False" by default, new or modified documents will be submitted to the full text index server configured for ApplicationXtender.
Setting this to "True" populates a new property > **Full Text Job Queue Name**: You can enter the name of the full text indexing queue you want to submit documents to. Left blank, new documents will be added without triggering full text indexing.
Note: Choosing "True" requires the AX user account used to establish the CMIS connection to have administrative privileges on the repository server.
|Timeout||30||The time, in seconds, it takes to hear back from AppXtender Web Services before a timeout error occurs.|
|Merge Action||None||This controls how documents are added to the ApplicationXtender repository when confronted with duplicate document index values. This can be one of three values.
Note: This feature requires that the target AX Application have the 'Part of Unique Key' flag enabled on at least one index field. Fields with this flag enabled will be used in a query prior to each document being exported. If a document is returned, the export will append/pre-pend the current Grooper document. Otherwise, a new document will be exported.
|Ignore Duplicate Index||False||Setting this to "True" will ignore existing documents with duplicate indexes when exporting.|
|Ignore Document Level Security||False||Setting this to "True" will ignore any document-level security when exporting.|
