Enable Versioning as a folder property via WebDAV?

We need to migrate a large set of documents and folders into KM using WebDAV. Uploading the documents, setting the document properties etc. all works well. We also can create the folders and enable manual ordering.

We would also like to enable versioning for folders, so that new resources added manually are automatically put under version control. The effect should be the same as Details -> Settings -> Versioning -> Enable Versioning in the KM UI.

Using the VERSION-CONTROL method of WebDAV does not have the desired effect - it actually puts the folder itself under version control. (I'm not sure I want to know the semantics of this).

Is there a (SAP proprietary?) WebDAV method or property to set the Versioning flag for folders?

Is there a similar feature to define an approval Workflow via WebDAV?

Hi,

Can you try doing this -

1. Create a parent folder in KM in portal (using portal menu - File -> New -> Folder).

2. Enable Versioning in that folder (Details -> Settings -> Versioning -> Enable Versioning)

3. Upload the documents in that parent folder through WebDAV.

All the documents/folder under the parent should be version enabled.

Sudip

Right, that is something else. See http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/rfc3253.html#rfc.section.14.

There should be a property called "enhancedcollection" in the SAP KM namespace ("http://sapportals.com/xmlns/cm"); try to set that to true.

I don't think so.
