Collaboration is a popular approach to delivering a global solution. Subject matter experts in many organizations collaborate with third parties to complement the skills and methodologies required to deliver an all-encompassing solution. To accomplish this goal, there is often a need to share enterprise content. The documents and drawings to be shared are often stored in a document management system which the external collaborators do not have access to.
One solution to this issue is using Box Share to share your documents. If Box Share is enabled, you can select a document to share, and IBM® Content Navigator creates a link to the specific version of the document. You can send the link to other people if you specify one or more email addresses. Anyone with the link can access the document. By using Box Share the content can be placed on managed cloud storage in the Box repository environment. The collaborators are then provided with a link to the content.
Enable Box Share in the Content Navigator desktop and the Content Engine repository
My latest IBM Redbooks Analytics Web Doc, Sharing Box Content in IBM Content Navigator, provides information on how to successfully enable and configure Box Share in IBM Content Navigator, bringing together personal experience and information from disparate sources into one simple to follow configuration guidance document.
