While using CMIS Workbench, I got the below issue just after clicking on "Load Repository".

I am not able to see documents from the site or its subsites. Please help me if any configuration is needed on the SharePoint side.

Not able to open the site using cmis work Bench.got the below issue while click on Load Repository. Please help

  • I'm afraid the question is more targeted to the tool than to SharePoint, it could make it difficult for you to find the answer here. I would throw out a hook at the tools forums as well to increase the chances :)

  • @MHeld: CMIS Workbench is the reference tool for testing CMIS servers. When CMIS Workbench fails to connect, you can be sure there is a server-side problem (in this case most probably a SharePoint misconfiguration). Oct 2 '18 at 0:42
  • Sudhir, please set the parameter -Dcmis.workbench.acceptSelfSignedCertificates=true in your workbench.bat, as suggested in the error message, and try again. Probably the underlying error will appear then. Oct 2 '18 at 0:46

The Basic Authentication must be enabled for the web application to can connect to the CMIS!
