Enabling ControlPoint Insert Configuration

Enabling ControlPoint Insert Configuration


ControlPoint allows mapping fields with the target repositories of information. With that, you can send metadata captured by ControlPoint to the target application. For example, you collect social security numbers from documents with entity extraction function; Insert Configuration will allow you to send this value to Content Manager when you do an action to create a record in CM. Insert Configurations are defined in ADMINISTRATION.

Insert Configuration is disabled by default on a new installation.


Go to the scheduler install folder, by default: C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\ControlPoint\Engine\Scheduler.

Edit the configuration file ControlPointTimer.exe.config.

Look for…

<add key=”InsertConfigEnabled” value=”false” />

Change it to…

<add key=”InsertConfigEnabled” value=”true” />

A restart of the ControlPoint Engine service is needed to pick up the change.

Note: To map field with Content Manager you can have a look at this post.
