The main site can be accessed via CMIS URL http://server/_vti_bin/cmis/rest?getRepositories.

But the list of repositories at this address does not seem to include other sites and sub-sites.

How to access them?

  • Does they have their own, different CMIS URLs?
  • Are they accessible at the same CMIS URLs via any other trick?

It is important to activate CMIS for each site and sub-site:

SharePoint site, Manage site features

SharePoint site, Activate CMIS Producer

Once this is done, CMIS can be accessed at this endpoint URL:


(There are various rumours about alternative URLs, for instance http://server/sub/site/_vti_bin/ListData.svc. And according to this blog, the CMIS URL syntax for sub-sites is http://server/sub/site/_vti_bin/ListData.svc/ListName)

From Technet I get the impression that in
