Microsoft SharePoint Distribution

ContentConnector Library

This page provides detailed information on how to use the Microsoft SharePoint Distribution connector. Visit the Managing Connectors for more information on how to import and manage ContentConnectors.


Description

This connector distributes document to Microsoft SharePoint. The connector works by identifying the SharePoint and associated document library. In the capture lifecycle definition, the Lifecycle Name parameter identifies which cabinet is associated with the document library detailed in the Document Library Name parameter. If the DocuNECT index values are the same name as the document library columns then the values will be updated.

Connector Parameters

The following table details the connector parameters:

Parameter Description Example
Lifecycle Name This allows the distribution connector to distribute batches produced by a specific Capture Lifecycle. Upload a Project Document
Distributed Processing For large volume environments the connector can be deployed in a distributed mode so multiple stations can run the same distribution process without contending with each other. No
SharePoint Site URL This is the URL of the site and is made up of two parts, the root SharePoint URL and then the site name.

http://servername/sitename

http://company.com/corporate
Document Library Name This is the name of the document library within the identified site. Contracts
Document Name Identifies which DocuNECT indexes are to be used in the name of the document within the SharePoint document library. For example if you had a DocuNECT cabinet index value called Invoice No and you wanted this to be the document name then you would place it in {..}. You can add multiple index values in the same name, so you can make the document name {Invoice No} - {Invoice Date}. {Invoice No}
Folder Structure Identifies which DocuNECT indexes are to be used in the folder structure in SharePoint where the document will be distributed to. For example if you had a DocuNECT cabinet index value called Vendor Name and you wanted this to be in the folder structure then you would place it in {..}. You can also specify literal folder names, so an example structure would be Invoices/{Vendor Name}. This would store documents in a folder called Invoices and then sub-folder with the value contained in the Vendor Name index value. Invoices/{Vendor Name}
