Event & Notification The event and notification function allows you to create and send messages to users through various channels. This is configurable. Context Context allows business users to track data selection in their workspaces. Content Lifecycle Management Content Lifecycle Management (CLM) aims to support the management of application content. The application can use the selected data to guide what to display to the user. This function also allows you to scan all message attachments using a Virus Scanner Interface (VSI) available on the server.0 The application is built on top of the NetWeaver Flex Client Platform and provides the necessary user environment capabilities. This is achieved by providing users with a consistent way to package. It focuses on the capability to deliver content from vendors’ landscapes to customers’ landscapes. version-control. and provides client-side localization and logging capabilities. It allows the implementation of a rich flex-based user interface with a consistent look and feel and a common flexible user interaction model. The hierarchy of visual containers is used to scope and filter the selected context data. It contains everything you need to know about installing the Planning and Consolidation components. ensures consistent accessibility of the user interface. Users can select the preferred delivery channel through which they want to receive messages. this is already facilitated by the ABAP transport system.1 Introduction 1 Introduction The SAP BusinessObjects Planning and Consolidation Installation Guide is intended for system administrators and technical consultants. Users can alter the display of data based on the selection of dimension members at the different levels within a workspace. Planning and Consolidation now supports virtualized production environments as described in SAP Notes 1098847 and 1409608. It enables context-aware interaction in the workspace environment. 2011-07-04 PUBLIC 7/42 . New Installation Program Features in 10. and import vendor content into their systems. inspect. When the workspace is saved the selected context is saved with it. It provides prebuilt components for reuse across different applications as well as configuration capabilities through its Flex runtime. It uses standard RESTful connectivity to the ABAP backend. an administrator has the ability to predefine a channel for all users. It is not intended to provide a means to transport content within a single landscape.

Choosing Landscape Model You need to decide whether the integrated or standalone mode of the Content Lifecycle Management (CLM) system is more appropriate for your scenario.sap. Apart from the current application (with which CLM is shipped). 4. which would include installation of CLM (if installation is being done together with application itself).

Choose display mode. Search for structure Content Lifecycle Management using F4 help. Identifying Managed Application Systems It is not necessary to identify all managed application systems during CLM installation as you can add extra application systems at a later stage and configure them for communication to CLM. See application-specific installation steps. security and performance considerations must be taken into account. Run transaction SIMGH.2 2. Identifying Roles and Activities 2011-07-04 PUBLIC 13/42 . see SAP Service Marketplace at http://service. The systems for which content is to be managed must be technically capable of integrating with Content Lifecycle Management (CLM). identifying the application systems at this stage can provide a good overview of the overall landscape in the context of CLM and can help you to decide on existing systems that can be used for CLM installation. CAUTION To enable communication between connected SAP systems it might be necessary to set up trust relationships between systems. RECOMMENDATION We recommend integrating Content Lifecycle Management with the following: XJ¥µˆ Consolidation system for deploying content before deploying that content to the actual production system. You can now maintain the Customizing activities. it is possible to integrate with further applications. 2.

Make sure that CLM users have sufficient authorization to access local files. make sure that CLM is connected to a secured desktop. Documentation of the CLM-based authorization objects and delivered technical roles is included in the Security Guide. RECOMMENDATION We recommend to have the same users for both CLM and the application. Since CLM interacts with these applications for content extraction and deployment. The delivered roles are only for reference for a particular managed application. CLM uses local desktop for attachments/files upload and download within content packages. unauthorized access to content can only be prevented if the same user is used in both CLM and the application.4 Planning the Installation Planning for Content Lifecycle Management Content Lifecycle Management only delivers sample technical roles containing authorizations for various managed applications and with supported features for each managed application. Ensuring Secure Connection for Files If you intend to create or import content packages with attachments/supporting files apart from application content. for more restrictions.2 2. you need to plan what roles can exist with regard to CLM and what CLM activities can users with these roles perform. The CLM authorization object can be assigned to users specific to the application via Netweaver ABAP user and role management. Authorization checks for application-specific objects and roles are part of the application itself. 14/42 PUBLIC 2011-07-04 .

NOTE After settings have been made in Customizing. you associate RFC destination to API groups and finally you use the system registry at runtime in your business scenarios for content extraction and deployment. Configuring System Registry The CLM system registry is used for maintaining a list of the managed systems along with their connectivity information. each ABAP client holds client-specific values. This tool is only intended for developers and it accepts the system registry ID. and RFC checks against a particular application system. and function modules before running CLM for actual extraction and deployment. CLM must have an entry in the system registry for all the systems that are to be managed by CLM. signature.
