Setting up support for federated documents | HCL Digital Experience

Before you can access metadata from federated documents, you need to configure access to the remote servers that contain the documents and specify information about the feeds or service documents that are used to retrieve the documents. You can also tune the cache settings that are used with the federated documents feature.

Before you begin

Authentication requirement: Before you can use the federated documents feature, you must complete one of the following steps:
  • Enable single sign-on (SSO) in IBM® WebSphere® Application Server between the portal server and the content management system.
  • Use a content management system that supports HTTP basic authentication, and enable a credential vault slot that stores the credentials to authenticate with the remote server.
