How to integrate IBM Docs 1.0.7 with IBM Connections 5.0 CCM CR2 (Filenet Libraries in Connections)

IBM Connections CCM integrates IBM Connections Communities with Filenet libraries, allowing users to store files hierarchically and add further features such as file types and approval process to it.  IBM Docs is able to integrate into those libraries to all user to view and edit files collaboratively. How to do this is unfortunately at the moment not very well documented in the IBM Docs knowledge center (this will be changed in the near future). Therefore I have created a Step by Step guide that will help you to install IBM Docs 1.0.7 on a IBM Connections 5.0 CCM CR2 system including the integration with Filenet Libraries.

You can find the guide on Greenhouse. Greenhouse is IBMs collaboration demonstration platform available to everyone, demonstrating solutions such as Sametime, Portal, Connections, Docs, Forms and many more (you will have to sign up, though).

Here the direct link to the guide:

  1. Hello,
    is it possible to integrate IBM Docs with IBM Filenet, so the repository for IBM Docs would be a Filenet Object Store?

    Here is the scenario:

    1. User logs in Case Manager
    2. User select a document in a Case folder
    3. The IBM Docs Spreadsheet is activated, retrieves the spreadsheet from Filenet, and allows the user to edit it
    4. The user saves the spreadsheet -> IBM Docs save it on Filenet

    Regards, Emerson

    1. Hi Emerson,

      yes, an integration of Filenet with IBM Docs is possible. The integration is done in the Filenet Navigator (I am not sure what the Case Manager is). Other than that it does exactly what you described.

      I found a video on Youtube (with an older version of Docs and with a Czech interface):

      Also the instructions of doing the integration can be found in the Knowledge Center with these specific additional steps:

      Let me know, if you have any additional questions!
