eDOCS DM Connector for SharePoint

OpenText eDOCS DM eliminates inefficiencies caused by the inability to manage and organize the explosion of electronic content by creating a single, highly scalable library for all your work product and matter information.

With eDOCS DM, all of your work products, such as documents, e-mail, graphics, PDFs, engineering drawings, scanned paper, and electronic-based records are consolidated into a unified enterprise knowledge base for easy retrieval and collaboration.

Users of the OpenText eDOCS DM Connector for SharePoint are able to search for content housed in eDOCS repositories directly from within SharePoint, eliminating the need to perform multiple searches to locate needed content.  Security established within eDOCS is maintained by the connector to make certain that content is only seen by those who have been granted access.

OpenText DM Connectors for SharePoint

The OpenText eDOCS DM Connector leverages our Connector Framework, through which we provide access to over 50 content sources.  The connector supports both full crawls and incremental crawls.


Our OpenText eDOCS DM Connector for SharePoint addresses key requirements that are challenging to implement through custom solutions:

  • 1
    Supports crawling of all types of content stored in eDOCS such as documents, emails, PDFs, etc.
  • 2
    Rapidly indexes content so that new or changed content is quickly searchable.
  • 3
    Uses a “light touch” approach to minimize the impact on the source system while content is being crawled.
  • 4
    Maintains security established in eDOCS, including the complex security models frequently used in organizations.
  • 5
    Master copies of content and security attributes remain in eDOCS.  References to content are stored in the SharePoint search index, so users who click on search results are taken directly to the content in eDOCS.


Future-proof your investment for new SharePoint versions and O365

With each successive version of SharePoint, Microsoft extends its core capabilities, and the same is true of new releases of the OpenText eDOCS DM. BA Insight does the hard work of keeping the connector up to date for both eDOCS and SharePoint. In addition, the OpenText eDOCS DM Connector for SharePoint also supports O365 through Cloud SSA and current versions of SharePoint including 2010, 2013, 2016, and Office365.

The upgrades can be done by your IT organization. It is a matter of accessing the BA Insight customer portal, downloading the latest release and installing and configuring it. Or, if desired, our professional services team can handle the upgrades.
