Basic Authentication

  • Open Central Administration > Application Management > Manage web application.

Activate Content Management Interoperability Services Producer Feature

  • Open your site > Site Settings > Site Actions > Manage Site Features.
  • Search For Content Management Interoperability Services Producer Feature.
  • Click on Active


  • On the SharePoint Central Administration website, click System Settings.
  • On the System Settings page, in the Farm Management section, click Configure alternate access mappings.


Part 2

Repository Name:

This is new Document Library you created for P6.  In Libraries, Click add an App, select Document Library.

Document Home:

This is new folder you created in Document Library. Click File menu on top, select ‘New Folder’

Login Name:

To know user who has permission to your Repository, click SETTING, under Permission and Management, click ‘Permission for this document library’.

NOTE: This username must be exactly matched with Login Name in P6 Administration. For example, if you put ‘Administrator’ in P6 Configuration, it will allow you to connect SharePoint but you will get permission issue, as user ‘Administrator’ does not have permission in P6Doc repository.
