Alfresco Content Connector for SAP Applications

Alfresco Content Connector for SAP Applications 5.1

The Alfresco Content Connector for SAP applications is an add-on module that offers seamless integration between Alfresco Content Services and SAP (R/3, S/4HANA). It connects the structured data in SAP with the unstructured data (or “living content”) in Alfresco.


The following image shows a simple representation of how Content Services (plus other Alfresco products) and the SAP Connector interact with SAP systems.


Here is a summary of the key capabilities:

  • Improved Productivity: One single source of truth for content via different user interfaces improves productivity.
  • Collaboration Ready: Make content available in the business process for different teams inside or outside the company.
  • Metadata Synchronization: Leverage structured data also outside SAP with automated metadata synchronization.
  • Certified by SAP: All SAP HTTP-Content Server related standard scenarios are covered. For example:
    • SAP Archivelink
      • Incoming documents (e.g. incoming invoices)
        • Early Archiving with SAP Workflow
        • Early Archiving with Barcode
        • Late Archiving
      • Outgoing documents (e.g. order confirmations)
      • Print List Archiving (e.g. quarter end reports)
      • SAP Workflow
  • SAP Document Management Service (DMS)
  • SAP Attachments
  • SAP Data Archiving (ADK)

Important: The SAP Connector module can be applied to several versions of Content Services. See Prerequisites and Supported Platforms for more.

Note: This documentation only covers how to use Content Services with the SAP Connector.
