How to get physical file from documentum using Service..? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1024101449 posted
    my client stored all the documents in documentum (PDR - Project Document Repository).
    
    based on some requirement, we want to fetch document (physical document) from the documentum
    and stored in to mentioned folder.
    
    We are getting confused in which method we need to go..
    
    eithrer we can go for Service (REST or WEB API) or some other methond.
    
    We are new to get the physical document from the documentum.
    
    can i have some idea or sample service code's about the above senario..?
    
    since we are new to handle the documentum along with service creation

    As you need someone knowing about this particular product rather than really about ASP.NET you should try https://developer.opentext.com/webaccess/#url=%2Fawd%2Fforums%2Fquestions&tab=501

    It seems a cloud based product and so using its web API seems standard. Sometimes you have a .NET assembly implementing already those API calls. Even if installed on your own private cloud it seems to me you should use a documented API. For now it  seems you are trying to directly find how and where "physical files" are stored by this product on the server which would be IMO a bad approach.

    Hi,

    You shoud likely check a forum for this product as well as the developer site. For example it seems to be now OpenText which leads to :

    If they don't have a ready to use package you'll use liekly HttpClient to call their REST api and do whatever you need such as downloading files...
