CMIS Binding

A CMIS Binding provides connectivity logic for external storage platforms, allowing CMIS Connection objects to import and export content.

Grooper's CMIS+ architecture expands connectivity from traditional CMIS servers to a variety of on-premise and cloud-based storage platforms by exposing connections to these platforms as CMIS Bindings. Each distinct CMIS Binding contains the settings and logic required to exchange documents between Grooper and each distinct platform.

  • For example, the AppXtender Binding contains all the information Grooper uses to connect to the ApplicationXtender content management system. The Exchange Binding contains necessary logic to connect to Microsoft Exchange email servers (like an Outlook inbox). The NTFS Binding allows connectivity to a Windows file system.

CMIS Bindings are referenced when creating a CMIS Connection object and configuring its Connection Type property. Which binding you use (and therefore which platform you connect to) is set by the Connection Type.

  • First, the user selects which CMIS Binding they want to use, selecting which storage platform they want to connect to.
  • Second, the user enters connection settings for that binding, such as login information for many of the CMIS Bindings.

Current CMIS Bindings

Below is a list of all current platforms with their own CMIS Bindings:

  • The ApplicationXtender document management platform.
  • The Box Content Management System.
  • The FileBound document management platform.
  • Content management systems using CMIS 1.0 or CMIS 1.1 servers.
