How can I work with SharePoint 2013 and Athento ECM Mobile?

Some of you already know about Athento’s mobile applications. Today, we’re going to talk about Athento ECM Mobile, which is an application which allows users to access the repositories that support CMIS.

A client has asked us the following question regarding the application:

How do I add a SharePoint 2013 server to Athento Mobile?

Step 1: Make SharePoint accessible

Working from a SharePoint Server 2013 console:

Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.Sharepoint.Powershell 
Get-SPWebApplication -IncludeCentralAdministration 

This will permit us to get the URL for SharePoint Central Administration. You should open this URL in a web browser and, from this page, you need to click on: Application Management >>Alternate Access Mappings >> Edit Public URLs.

In the "Alternate Access Mapping Collection" option, choose the site that you want to access, and under "Public URLs", select the URL that accesses the server: (http://servidor or https://servidor) as the "Default".

Step 2: Activate Authentication

You’ll need to go back to the "SharePoint Central Administration" option and enter into the “Security” option. Once there, click on "Specify authentication providers >> Default". From there, you’ll be able to conduct the basic authentication.

Step 3: Activate use of CMIS

In "Site Settings", go to "Site actions>>Manage Features" and click on “Activate CMIS”.

Step  4: Add the Sharepoint 2013 server to Athento ECM Mobile

Click on the “+Add Server” option on your mobile application.

Next, you’ll see a form that helps you configure your access to the repository. You’ll have to provide the following data:

  • Server name: The name used to identify the repository in Athento ECM Mobile.
  • User name: The user’s name in SharePoint
  • Password: The user’s password
  • CMIS URL: http://{sharepoint-server}/_vti_bin/cmis/rest?getRepositories.

Once you’ve filled in the form and clicked on “Accept”, the application will be ready to be used.

Next, we’ll show you a brief video of how Athento ECM Mobile works:
