I am a Sharepoint beginner and am try to connect to an installation via CMIS (using AtomPub) and can't get it to connect. I can connect from Sharepoint itself (using the CMIS Producer and Consumer, and get a list of repositories).

My question is how do I determine what the correct atompubutl is ?

It appears to want it in the following format ...


I know what the should be, but what does the represent ? What part of the location in Sharepoint does this represent, and how to I know what to configure it to ?

Thanks in advance

It looks like I've sorted this out - now moved on to other Sharepoint/CMIS issues!

Correct URL is http://<hostname>/_vti_bin/cmis/rest/<repository-id>?getRepositoryInfo

To summarize ...

"Try using http://<hostname>/_vti_bin/cmis/rest/<repository-id>/getRepositoryInfo, where is the ID for the SP list or document library you're trying to access. I've found the easiest way to get this ID is in SharePoint Designer -- open the site in SPD, navigate to "Lists and Libraries", and select the one you're trying to access. The resulting page will contain a value for "List ID" that looks like {xxx}. Just use the xxx for the in your URL, not the curly braces. (The actual ID will be much longer than just xxx.)"


http://<hostname>/_vti_bin/cmis/rest/<repository-id>/getRepositoryInfo should be:
