We have one urgent requirement - MSDS publishing on the client external portal from SAP DMS.
MSDS report will get generated as per standard WWI process and from the Report Management system manually export the report by Exp_Call in Report shipping. Once it is finished the final report SBE will get stored in Kpro Content server. The requirement is how we can pull this document to external portal and also to take the CD back-up for the generated MSDS. If the only way is PI, then please let me know how to map the fields in DMS and portal, so that customers can query with different search options ( like Material name, Trade Name or by CAS number)
Any insights on this will be highly appreciated!
as in your example we are using EXP_CALL to solve the topic. The main difference is: we do not store the SBEs in DMS or Kpro Content server but directly pushing the documents in a folder structure together with data (like sales org, material number, material text and others). External tools can pull the document and meta data from the folder and process it in such a way that the data can be shown in external or internal portals.
I am not so familiar with "kPro content server"; If we are talking about DMS I can more help:
the "main" issue is that in DMS you "lost" any further information (no relation ot materoil number etc.
Depending on your set up of EXP_CALL: if you do not delete the report shipment data regarding exp_call you could use standard transaction to CVD1 to find the data (material number, material text, sales org etc.). In most cases XI/PI is not used to do the job.
I believe Michael is referring to the old TechniData solution which seems now to be avaivalbe as a specific service by SAP
With best regards
PS: in most case the SBE wil be a pdf document; but that is not a problem (refer to other threads in this FORUM)
