Connector for IBM FileNet enables communication between AEM forms and IBM FileNet. For additional background information, see "Connectors for ECM" in Services Reference.
In earlier releases, assets could be stored in an ECM repository. In this release, assets are stored in the AEM forms native repository and the Repository Provider services have been deprecated. The migration of assets from an ECM repository to the AEM forms repository is done when you perform an upgrade to AEM forms. For more information, see the AEM forms Upgrade guide for your application server.

Connector for IBM FileNet contains the Process Engine Connector for IBM FileNet service, which is used to interact with the IBM FileNet Process Engine. You can configure settings for this service.
If you enter an incorrect user name or password when configuring the connection to the Content Engine or the process engine settings, you will get the following results, depending on whether the services are currently running:
If both the Repository Provider service for IBM FileNet and the Content Repository Connector for IBM FileNet service are stopped, when you save the service configuration information, no error appears. However, the next time you start the service, an exception will be thrown and the service will not start.
If either the Repository Provider service for IBM FileNet or the Content Repository Connector for IBM FileNet service are started, when you save the service configuration information, the service attempts to validate the credential information immediately. In this case, an error occurs and the configuration information is not saved.
You can configure which repository service provider to use with FileNet. Repository service calls are delegated to the provider you configure.
The following options are available:
IBM FileNet Repository Provider:
Makes the FileNet repository provider the provider for the repository. This option has been deprecated.
Makes the native repository provider the provider for the repository
Note: To select a repository service provider other than those listed, configure RepositoryService in Applications and Services. (See Managing Services.)
In administration console, click Services > Connector for IBM FileNet.
In the Repository Service Provider Information area, select the alternative repository service provider, and then click Save.
