Create End User and Administrator iViews:

Based on custom iView template for forums, you can create the required forum iViews. To work with forums you need following 3 Forums iViews:

User view (Forums Home page)

Administrator View (Admin Console)

Initial Administration View

Procedure to create all these views is same only the iView configuration differs.

Procedure to create these iViews1. In the portal, choose Content Administration -> Portal Content.

2. In the Portal Content Studio locate the target folder for your new iView.

3. In the target folder's context menu, choose New -> iView.

4. Select the custom iView template for forums.

5. Enter the required values and in the last step choose Finish.

6. Select the option Open the object for editing.

To configure each iView, open property editor of the iView.

a. User View

1. Select the property category Forums Configuration.

2. For the property View on Forums select Forums.

3. Select the property category Navigation.

4. For the property Quick link enter forums.

b. Administrator iView

1. Select the property category Forums Configuration.

2. For the property View on Forums select Forums Administration.

3. Select the property category Navigation.

4. For the property Quick link enter forumsadmin.

c. Forums iView for initial Administration

1. Select the property category Forums Configuration.

2. For the property View on the forums select Add Forums Administrator User.

This iView is used to set Forums Administrator User. Whenever you want to set a new administrator for forum, use this iView to set it.

Create roles and set Administrator for Forums

Now you have all the iView required to work with Forums application. Please create a simple role, name it as Forums Admin and assign all the 3 iViews you have created to the role.

Create a End User role and include only User View (Forums Homepage iView) in the role.

Assign this new role to a portal user. Login to portal using this portal user.

Setting Administrator for forum Application.

Navigate to Forums role -> Initial Administration iView.Note: To Access this Initial Admin iView, Portal user should be in Administrators Group. Alternatively, the portal user should be member of the application-specific J2EE security role named JiveAdminDefinitionRole. (cf. Security Provider for the sap.com/com.sap.netweaver.coll.forums)

In this iView, enter a portal user and choose Set User. This user will be New Forums Administrator.

Now you have set a Forums Administrator. Login using this portal user, don't forget to attach Forums Administrator role to this user.

Creating Categories and Forums:

Please login to portal using forum administrator ID. Choose your forum role from TLN and choose Administrator iView.

To create a category, choose Categories summary. You need to create a new category in Root Category. Choose New Sub Category.

In Create Category, give a appropriate name for your category and choose create.

You have created a new category. You have to create forums in this category now.

Choose you newly created Category, and click on "Create New forum"

Give appropriate name and description to your forum.

You can decide what permissions you want to assign to the forum. You can change the permissions later as well.Choose Create Forum and you are all done with your basic configuration. All you have to do is, access User View (Forums Home Page view), and start posting.

Steps by step configuration:

1. Download Forums 7.0 Application from Marketplace.

In the SAP Service Marketplace access the download area using URL http://service.sap.com/swdc

In SAP Software Distribution Center choose Download->Support Packages and Patches-> Entry by Application group -> SAP Netweaver -> SAP NETWEAVER -> SAP NETWEAVER 2004s -> Entry by Component -> Enterprise Portal.

You need 2 SCA files from here. Forums7.00 and KMC UI Layer 7.00

Download SCA files necessary to install Forum Application.

->Choose Forums 7.00 and choose #OS independent

Download Forums 7.00 SCA file.

-> Choose KMC UI Layer 7.00 and choose #OS independant

Download KMCUI SCA file. What does these files contain?

A forum 7.00 SCA file contains the actual Forums Application whereas KMCUI contains Forums Iview template.

2. Deploying files using SDM

Start RemoteGUI.bat from \usr\sap\EBD\DVEBMGS00\SDM\program

Choose Deployment. Add Forums SCA file and KMCUI SCA file for deployment. Follow the 4 steps to complete the installation.

You need to restart the server for changes to take effect.

You can see the Collaboration Forums iView Template in PCD.

Goto Content Administration -> Portal Content -> Content Provided by SAP -> Templates -> iView Templates

1. Providing basic set of Forums Iviews.

After deploying forum application to your portal, you need to make the Forums Homepage and Forums Administrative functions accessible via Portal iViews.

Procedure: Create custom iView Template

SAP recommends to create a custom iView template as a delta link copy of the standard iView template delivered by SAP. The specific configuration of your custom iView template is not affected by new deployments.

1. In the portal, choose Content Administration -> Portal Content.

2. In the Portal Content Studio, open the folder Portal Content -> Content Provided by SAP -> Templates -> iView Templates.

3. In the context menu of the Collaboration Forums iView choose Copy.

4. Locate the target folder (a folder of your choice) and in its context menu choose Paste as Delta Link.

5. Rename the custom iView template so that in the iView creation wizard you can distinguish the specific iView template from the default one.

You may need to restart the cluster in order to see your custom iView template in the list of iView templates when you create a new iView.
