Configure your ECM setup to enable search across ECM repositories.
IBM® Lotus® Quickr™ for WebSphere Portal users can perform a search over documents stored in an ECM repository using the Lotus Quickr Search Center. The scope of this search, however, depends on the ECM repository that you have configured for integration with Lotus Quickr. The scope of a search from Lotus Quickr across IBM Content Manager is the subset of IBM Content Manager that comprises documents added from Lotus Quickr to IBM Content Manager using IBM Content Manager Services for Lotus Quickr, for example, by a publish operation or by using Lotus Quickr Connectors. If you have configured an IBM FileNet P8 repository, the search scope covers all the documents of the repository.
Search queries are submitted by using the Search box that is available at the side of the Theme bar. With appropriate configuration settings, a Lotus Quickr user can view and use the Enterprise Documents
search scope from the Lotus Search Center. Lotus Quickr users can download and view summary pages of the ECM documents returned in the result set.
Enterprise Documents search scope
The Enterprise Documents
search scope is disabled by the system, by default. It become enabled after a remote content search service (RCSS) is configured, with a parameter ContentType
whose value is ECM_P8
if the search is to be configured for a FileNet P8 repository and ECM_CM
if the search is to be configured for IBM Content Manager. The RCSS helps in making the relevant content of an ECM repository available for searching. If the service is deleted, the scope becomes disabled again. This scope can also be disabled explicitly from the Manage Scopes
The Enterprise Documents
search scope is the only available search scope for searching and retrieving ECM documents. You cannot use the All Sources
scope for searching ECM documents even if you have installed and configured the ECM services for integrating Lotus Quickr with an ECM repository.
Searching for ECM documents differs from the usual Lotus Quickr search. The following table describes the Lotus Quickr search features that are not supported or supported in a limited manner for the ECM search.
