Connector for use with SAP ArchiveLink
Foundation 23.1

In addition to creating a repository in SAP, you must create a corresponding one in OnBase ArchiveLink Administration. The repositories on an ArchiveLink Server are the main integration point between the SAP system and the OnBase system. To create a repository:

  1. Expand the Configuration node.
  2. Click the Repositories link.
  3. Enter the Repository Name of the repository.

    The name of the repository must match here and in SAP. This name must be unique and not exceed two characters.

  4. Enter a meaningful Description for the repository.
  5. Select the appropriate OnBase Document Type Name configured for use with the SAP repository.
    If a Document Type has not yet been configured, see Configuring Data Archiving in OnBase.
  6. Enter the MIME type used as the default file format in the Document Class field. If the Document Type selected in the Document Type Name field has an associated MIME type configured, it will automatically be populated in the Document Class field. When the OnBase ArchiveLink Server registers bar codes with SAP, it requires a MIME type. When the OnBase file type has a configured MIME type, this type is used when registering the bar code. However, as MIME type is not a required file type property in OnBase, all content repositories on an OnBase ArchiveLink Server must have a default document class.

    Servers cannot have multiple repositories associated with the same document type.

  7. Select the appropriate Destination.

    Configuring a destination is required.

  8. Click Add.

    For performance reasons, repository, destination and configuration information are stored in a global application cache. For this reason, changes will be reflected within the application cache immediately only on the administrated machine. Applications running in a load-balanced environment require an IIS/web site restart or a reset of the cache of the OnBase Application Server in order to refresh the application cache. In addition, any time the SAP system is restarted, you must restart IIS or reset the cache of the OnBase Application Server.


    Using the Reset Cache option in OnBase Configuration or the Reset Server Cache option in OnBase Studio may have a negative impact on system performance. Requests to the Application Server will be forced to wait until the cache is rebuilt before they can be processed. Depending on the size of the OnBase system, as well as the current server load, the performance impact of resetting the cache may be severe. To avoid performance issues, only reset the cache of the Application Server during off-peak hours. For more information about the Reset Cache option in OnBase Configuration, see the System Administration documentation. For more information about the Reset Server Cache option in OnBase Studio, see the Studio documentation.
