Content

Steps involved
  1. Set ICCSAP server for using BACSoC Application Program Interface (API)
  2. Configure Content Platform Engine (CPE) in BACSoC
  3. Configure workflow in BACSoC
  4. Configure ICCSAP server
  5. Configure ICCSAP server with on-premise ICN
I. Setting up ICCSAP server to use BACSoC API
Perform the following steps to set up the ICCSAP server for using BACSoC API.
  1. Download the relevant CPE API package from the BACSoC user portal.
  2. Follow the Content Platform Engine APIs Getting Started guide from the CPE API package to configure CPE API access to BACSoC using a functional ID.
II. Configuring CPE in BACSoC
Perform the following steps to configure CPE in BACSoC.
  1. Log onto Administration Console for Content Engine (ACCE) with administrator privileges in the BACSoC environment where you want to make the configuration changes and navigate to the Object Store.
  2. Create a connection point and an isolated region. Refer to creating extra connection points and isolated regions for more information.
  3. Create a P8 queue inside the isolated region. Refer to configuring workflow queues for more information.
  4. Create properties in the Property Templates folder under Data Design. Refer to creating properties for the list of properties to be created.
  5. Create a document class in the Classes folder under Data Design. Refer to step 5 in Configuring FileNet P8 for use with ICCSAP for more information.
  6. If the archived documents are to be organized in folders, create the required folders. Refer to working with folders for more information.
  7. Create Subscription. Refer to creating a subscription for more information.
  8. Create In-basket. Refer to creating in-basket for more information.
III. Configuring workflow in BACSoC using Process Designer
Perform the following steps to configure the workflow in BACSoC.
  1. Download the Process Designer tool from the CPE Tools package from the BACSoC user portal.
  2. Follow the instructions from the Getting Started Guide in the CPE Tools package to set up Process Designer.
  3. Configure workflow using Process Designer and Process Console. Refer to creating P8 queues and workflows for more information.
IV. Configuring ICCSAP server
Set the following parameters in the archint.ini file.
Field Value
P8USER <BACSoC functional ID that has access to CPE in BACSoC>
P8ODMAIN <BACSoC CPE Domain Name>
OBJECTSTORE <BACSoC CPE Object Store Name>
REMOTESERVERURL
<BACSoC CPE URL>
Example:
https://<tenant instance virtual host>.bpm.ibmcloud.com/ecm/<dev|test|run>/wsi/FNCEWS40MTOM/?useBasicAuth=true
Where:
  • <tenant instance virutal host> is the virtual host name of your BACSoC instance, and
  • <dev|test|run> is the environment where you want to access the BACSoC CPE.
DEFAULT_P8DOCCLASS <BACSoC CPE Document Class>
DEFAULT_FOLDER <BACSoC ICCSAP Default Path>
P8DOCCLASS <BACSoC CPE Ddocument Class>
PE_USERID <BACSoC functional ID that has access to CPE in BACSoC>
PE_CONNECTPOINT <BACSoC Connection Point>
PE_QUEUENAME <BACSoC CPE Queue>
REPINFOCLASSES <BACSoC CPE Document Class>
RETURN_ALL_ATTR Yes
P8_CLASSPATH
Point to the following JAR files that are extracted from the BACSoC CPE API package:
  • Jace.jar
  • pe.jar
  • peResources.jar
  • stax-api.jar
  • xlxpScanner.jar
  • xlxpScannerUtils.jar
  • log4j-1.2.17.jar
V. Configuring ICCSAP server with on-premise ICN
Perform the following steps to configure the ICCSAP server with on-premise ICN.
  1. Configure the ICCSAP server instance in on-premise ICN. Refer to getting started with configuration feature for more information.
  2. Use the Web Service Index (WSI) endpoint of BACSoC CPE in the logical archives section.
  3. Configure Archiving Profile, Document Profile, and Index Profile. Refer to basic and advanced functions for more information.
  4. Run Archiving, Document Linking, and Index Transfer tasks.
