What is the difference between these two SAP DMS documents?
The Problem: Lack of Status Information
In our example, the first document is an unapproved design drawing. Whereas the second design drawing has already been approved.
This information is not visible on the document when you retrieve these documents from the DMS using the SAP standard.
The Solution: Stamps from SEAL Systems
Connection to External Applications via Web Service
When connecting to external systems, the external application calls the oData service in SAP and requests a specific file. The file is then stamped and made available to the external application.
Of course, it is possible to check whether external parties are allowed to see this document and it is also possible to log the accesses. This ensures that only certain documents are available to the external application and that it is logged who accessed which document and when.
