More Info:



  1. Log into the web interface of your site, click the gear icon in the upper-right, and click on Site settings, then in the Site Actions section click on Manage site features. In the list that appears, activate the Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) Producer item:


  1. To access the repository the given URL is used.


If the content management is enabled for the given share point instance, the URL will return a file containing the repository details.

  2. When the batch has finished processing, the uploaded files can be retrieved from the Administrative Report library by selecting the site contents from the gear shaped drop down  at the top right.


Document Level Field Mapping:

To export document level fields firstly make sure the columns (Meta data) are already created on the SharePoint server. Afterwards follow the given syntax for the export mappings in DLF-Attribute-mapping. Properties file

Content of file
Document_Name.Document_Level_Field 1= SharePoint_Column_Name1
Document_Name.Document_Level_Field 2= SharePoint_Column_Name2

  1. In case the document level fields contain spaces use the escape character \ before inserting spaces
    Document_Name.Document_Level_Field_Subpart1\ Document_Level_Field_Subpart2= …
    For example a String like US-Invoice-Data.Invoice\ Date would refer to the Invoice Date field of document US-Invoice-Data.
  2. In case the column name contains space, use the escape characters _x0020_.
    Document_Name.Document_Level_Field = SharePoint_Column_Name_SubPart1_x0020_ SharePoint_Column_Name_SubPart2
    For example a String like Part_x0020_Number would denote Part Number column name on SharePoint server.

Please refer the sample given below:

US-Invoice-Data.Invoice\ Date=Invoice_x0020_Date
US-Invoice-Data.Invoice\ Total=Invoice_x0020_Total
US-Invoice-Data.Part\ Number=Part_x0020_Number
