For our primary data load, we’re required to upload 6500 locations, and each location has several attachments. How can this be done in TRIRIGA in the most efficient way? The Document Manager allows you to upload multiple files for only 1 record.
You’d want to use an integration, for example, Integration Object (Database scheme), CBA SOAP API, or the OSLC REST API. All of those handle document attachments. Our API documentation is here.
I will note though that our Document Manager stores all documents in the TRIRIGA database schema. It’s not intended to be a replacement for a true Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solution. If you expect to have tens or hundreds of thousands of documents, I would advise considering an alternative approach, such as FileNet or Documentum. The idea is that you’d have a purpose-built ECM solution handle the document storage as the source, and then integrate TRIRIGA with that, using the same APIs mentioned above. We are also exploring a more direct platform level content management integration utilizing Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS), but we don’t expect that to be available until the end of the year at the earliest.
