The documents are important elements of information that can be related to any Configuration Item stored in the CMDB: manuals and technical documents, contracts, forms, error screenshots, technical drawings, images of objects and locations, videos, etc.
The Data Management Module interface of CMDBuild for each data sheet includes a special page (TAB) that lists all files attached to the card. It is possible therefore to display documents or to attach new ones.
CMDbuild uses as a repository in embedded mode the Alfresco document management system, which is the market leader in the open and closed source solutions.
The Documents Read and Write operations are perfomed in Alfresco by CMDBuild through the SOAP and FTP protocols.
