How to send a document from DP to CFS and make it ready for packaging

Here, we will discuss the whole process of how to send a document from IGP:Digital Publisher(DP) to IGP:Content Fulfilment System(CFS) and make it ready for packaging.

The transfer of a document from DP to CFS involves a series of steps which has been described below in detail.

Things to remember before sending a document to CFS

  1. Every document (DP or CFS) is under an account.
  2. A document from DP is only sent to a specific account in CFS. Check the details of the particular DP account to view to which CFS account it is mapped.
    You can do this by clicking the Modify(M) button of the particular account in Maintenance>Accounts in the DP interface. Check the field CFS Account Name in the Modify Account form.
    EG. Say a DP account name XYZ has CFS account named XYZCFS mapped to it. Then any document sent from XYZ (DP Account) will only go to XYZCFS account and not any other account in CFS.
