Configure a basic mapping between the metadata associated with IBM® Lotus® Quickr™ documents to the metadata required for storing the documents published from Lotus Quickr to an ECM repository.
You need to map the properties associated with Lotus Quickr documents with the equivalent properties available in the ECM repositories. These properties are aggregated as Forms in Lotus Quickr, classes in IBM FileNet P8, and as attribute groups in IBM Content Manager. This mapping ensures that the field values associated with the Lotus Quickr documents are retained and transferred along with the document during a publish operation to an ECM repository.
Similarly, you can map the Lotus Quickr document types with the ECM document types. Document types help in associating Forms with a document. When you map Lotus Quickr document types with the ECM document types, document publishing stores Lotus Quickr documents as instances of the configured item types (as in IBM Content Manager) or classes (as in IBM FileNet P8) in the target ECM systems.
The configuration of mappings displays the Edit Properties
page in the Publish wizard. The fields shown on this page are the properties that make up the target ECM document type. The page displays values pre-filled in the fields that have been mapped from Lotus Quickr to the ECM system. If you expect a field to have a value because the Lotus Quickr document has that field, check that the mapping is correct and that the corresponding datatypes of the fields can be mapped.
Refer also to the Working with Documents
section in the IBM Content Manager documentation for general information about Lotus Quickr documents published to an IBM Content Manager repository and mapping of metadata in the context of an IBM Content Manager repository.
Understand the Forms and recommendations for mapping Forms of IBM Lotus Quickr with their ECM equivalents.
Use the qpconfig.xml to configure mapping
Make appropriate configuration settings from the WebSphere® Application Server administrative console to map the existing IBM Lotus Quickr property sheets to their ECM equivalents.
