WebCenter Content - A new Delivery Channel in 11.1.1.9.0 !!

Hi Everyone

One of the new features introduced in 11.1.1.9.0 is WebCenter Content (WCC) Server as a delivery channel. Prior to this release, we could manage delivery to WCC (formerly UCM) server using webDAV as explained by Tim in his blog "BI Publisher and WebDAV... done!". However, there were few restrictions

  • No way to include standard or custom metadata. Therefore, there was no description for the documents submitted and searching these documents in WCC was not convenient.
  • WebDAV uses folders to store the document and access to these folders have to be pre-configured by WCC Administrator. User can not select security group or account at the time of scheduling.

Moreover, with WCC as delivery channel you have the ability to use idc(s), http(s) and JAX-WS protocols. Refer to the documentation on RIDC protocols for more details on these protocols.

We have now videos in BI Publisher Youtube Channel to demonstrate how BI Publisher integration with WCC works. The videos are split in two parts: Part 1 (Title: BIPublisherWCC Part1) covers an overview and explains some of the WCC concepts, while Part 2 (Title: BIPublisherWCC Part2) walks you through all the steps necessary to make the integration work.

You can find additional details in the documentation guide. Navigate to the Books link and check the Administrators Guide for setting up delivery destinations and the Data Modeling Guide for Custom Metadata & Bursting related information. 

I am sure you will find this new feature very easy to configure and very useful for maintaining documents in WCC. Have a nice day !!

    I never got a chance to work with WebDAV but always wanted to know one. This is really good to know about WCC as a new delivery channel that BIP supports in 11.1.1.9.0.

    Videos really helped a lot to understand the concepts on how it works.

    I will give a try to do this from my side.

    Thank You!
