1 Introduction
These Release Notes provide an overview of OpenText eDOCS DM 5.3.1 Suite Patch 6, including
new features, delivery information, and supported platforms. OpenText recommends that you read
these Release Notes in conjunction with the documentation included with the software package. If any
conflicts exist, the Release Notes supersede the other documentation.

We also recommend that you check the OpenText Knowledge Center


(https://knowledge.opentext.com/) for any patches or documentation updates that may have been
posted after the initial release of OpenText eDOCS DM 5.3.1 Suite Patch 6.

2 About OpenText eDOCS DM 5.3.1 Patch 6


This section provides an overview of OpenText eDOCS DM 5.3.1 Suite Patch 6.

This is the latest patch for the eDOCS DM 5.3.1 release. Consult the eDOCS DM 5.3.1 Patch 1
Release Notes for complete information about the eDOCS DM 5.3.1 software.

Important
The eDOCS DM 5.3.1 Patch 1 is a complete ISO image and the baseline
install for the DM 5.3.1 version. This software can be applied as an
upgrade on top of DM 5.1.0.5, 5.2.1, 5.3 and 5.3.1. This software is also
the image to use for new installs of the DM 5.3.1 product line. If
upgrading from a release prior to DM 5.3.1 Patch 1, you must first
upgrade to DM 5.3.1 Patch 1 and then apply DM 5.3.1 Patch 6.

eDOCS DM 5.3.1 Suite Patch 6 is a cumulative update which contains all updates from previous
patches for each component.

2.1 New Features


OpenText eDOCS DM Version 5.3.1 Suite Patch 6 include the following new features.

2.1.1 DM Security Vulnerability Update (DM-32057)


On March 10, 2015 we issued a DM Security Alert and subsequently updated the alert on March 12
with the details on the configuration options on how to prevent the security vulnerability issue, as well
as the Hotfixes for DM 5.3.0, 5.3.1 and 10.

For more information, refer to the Knowledge Base Article 58528481 or contact your local Customer
Support office.

OpenText eDOCS DM Version 5.3.1 Suite Patch 6 Release Notes


5
The eDOCS DM 5.3.1 Patch 6 software includes the resolution to this issue, as well as an additional
configuration option that will allow you to deploy the updates as part of a phased upgrade.

The DM Server 5.3.1 Patch 6 update is installed with the fixes in the PCDServerIF.dll and
PCDClient.dll and configured to use the DM Security Token logic that addresses the security
vulnerability by default. This also requires that the DM client desktops contain the supplied DM API
PCDClient.dll if you want to continue to use DM Extensions with the Allow Auto Logon feature
enabled.

2.1.1.1 How to perform a phased upgrade:

If you are not able to update your DM Extensions in a short period of time and want to keep the Auto
Login feature enabled for the DM Extensions in your environment, perform the following.

The DM Server can be configured not to use the new DM Security DST logic and continue to use the
Auto Login feature with the previous DM extension clients.

DM Server Registry Setting:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Hummingbird\DOCSFusion\Security

Reg_DWORD: DisableSecureDST = 0 (Default and security issue resolved)

DisableSecureDST = 1 (Manually changed and security vulnerability present with


Auto Login enabled)

Note:The DM Server DisableSecureDST setting needs to be set back to 0 as soon as you have
updated your DM Extensions with 5.3.1 Patch 6.

Important Security Notice


If you change the DisableSecureDST registry setting on the DM Server to
a value that is greater than zero (0,) your environment still have the
eDOCS DM 5.3.x Web Services application programming interface (API)
security vulnerability that could be exploited to allow a bad actor to
programmatically authenticate as any valid eDOCS user and act with
permissions and privileges associated with that account if the Allow Auto
Logon feature is enabled.

OpenText eDOCS DM Version 5.3.1 Suite Patch 6 Release Notes


6
2.1.2 Folder Metadata Inheritance (DM-9588)
The eDOCS DM Extensions can be configured to not inherit the Author and Document Type fields
when initially saving a new document to a DM Library folder.

This functionality can be enabled by setting the following registry on the client desktop:

DWORD "InheritAuthorDocType" registry key and set the value to 0 to not inherit the Author
and Document Type fields.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Hummingbird\PowerDOCS\Core\Plugins\Fusion\Settings

If this key is not present or present and set to 0, DM Extensions will continue to inherit the Author and
Document Type from the folder.

Note: The eDOCS DM 10 version includes additional functionality for controlling metadata inheritance
where the DM administrator can define additional fields that they do not want to inherit from a folder.
See the eDOCS DM 10 Release Notes for additional details.

2.1.3 DM Footer Enhancements (DM-22572)


The DM Insert DM Footer for the Microsoft Word and Excel 2010, 2013 integrations have been
enhanced to provide you with more control over the layout, metadata, text, font, and alignment of the
information in the footer.

2.1.4 Encrypted Email Support (DM-26423)
The eDOCS DM software now includes support for saving encrypted emails into DM from the
Microsoft Outlook 2007, 2010, and 2013 clients.

2.1.5 DM API Support for the Advanced Search Interface (DM-26835)


When building a custom application that uses a custom search interface, when the users selects
profile search the custom application interface is presented to the user.

The DM API has been enhanced to present the user with the Advanced Search interface instead of
the custom interface when they perform an Advanced Profile Search.

The following registry key needs to be in place:


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Hummingbird\PowerDOCS\Forms]SearchCriteriaForm="Cus
tomDLL.CustomClass".

2.1.6 DM Extension API Refresh Specific Frames (DM-27441)


In the DM Extensions API version 5.3.1 Patch 5 or prior, developers could use the
"DOCSOPEN.RefreshAllViews" to refresh the DM Extensions interface which updated all the frames.
However, on the DM Toolbar, the Refresh button would only refresh the frame/view that had the
current focus.

The DM Extensions API has been enhanced to support updating the frame/view that has the current
focus.

A 'RefreshREDView' property has been added to use in DOVerb calls so that Application Integration
code can call this right after the QuickSave API call.

How to use this new function:

Dim pObjArray As New BCObjectArray


pObjArray.DoVerb(Nothing, "Contents", "DOCSOPEN.RefreshREDView", 0, Nothing)

2.1.7 Request for DM 5.3 documentation on the DM Library Database Indexes.


(DM-28627)

The eDOCS DM 5.3.1 Administration Guide has been updated with the following chapters:

 APPENDIX H: Microsoft SQL Table and Index Listing
 APPENDIX I: Oracle Table and Index Listing

The Administration Guide is available here:

https://knowledge.opentext.com/knowledge/llisapi.dll/Open/26345148

2.1.8 DM Interceptor Support for 64 Bit Applications (DM-28937)

The DM Interceptor feature has been enhanced to include a 64 bit Interceptor.

When applying the DM Extensions (x64) Patch 6, the 64 bit version will be installed in conjunction
with the 32 bit Interceptor application.

The 64 bit interceptor installs the Interceptor_x64.exe, InterceptorCore_x64.dll,


InterceptorHooks_x64.dll, InterceptorRes_x64.dll, InterceptorTuner_x64.dll in the Program Files
(x86)\Open Text\DM Extensions directory.

The eDOCS DM Interceptor 32-Bit version settings are located in:

 HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Hummingbird\PowerDOCS\AppIntegration\Interceptor

The eDOCS DM Interceptor 64-Bit version settings are located in:

 HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Hummingbird\PowerDOCS\AppIntegration\Interceptor_x6
4

The Windows Task tray will show the DM icon, the 32 bit Interceptor, and the new 64 bit Interceptor
icon with the number 64 as an overlay on the icon.

NOTE: The Interceptor 64 bit version only integrates with 64 bit applications. The Interceptor 32 bit
version still needs to be used to intercept 32 bit applications.

2.1.8.1 Notepad 64 Bit Configuration Example

2.1.9 DM Content Cache – Pre-Cache Enhancement (DM-32278)
The eDOCS DM Content Cache Pre-Population feature allows an eDOCS administrator to set up
each library with one or more saved searches that can be used to pre-populate the content cache
directory at a specified time of day, generally during off hours.

2.1.9.1 Creating a Content Cache Pre-Population Search

The DM Extensions user interface is used to create the searches that will be used by the content
cache pre-population process. Simply define the search as you would any other search and save the
search to the library. You might want to rename the search so that its purpose is more clearly visible
within the user interface. The search must then be added to the content cache registry to be picked
up by the pre-population process (see below).

2.1.9.2 Manual Registration Requirements

The eDOCS DM 5.3.1 software release does not provide an administration user interface for the
content cache pre-population feature. To enable the process the following registry keys/values must
be added. These values only need to be added to a single server with content cache installed. In

OpenText eDOCS DM Version 5.3.1 Suite Patch 6 Release Notes


18
other words, if the content cache is accessed by a cluster of servers, only one server in the cluster
needs to be set up for cache pre-population.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Hummingbird\DOCSFusion\Content
Cache
 PreCache
A String value that can be set to either “Enabled” or “Disabled” to turn the pre-cache process
on or off. The default is “Disabled.”
 PreCache Time
A String value that contains a time in 24-hour format at which the pre-population process
should execute. For example “02:30” means that the pre-population process will run at 2:30
AM each day. The default is “00:00” (Midnight).
 PreCache Search List
A Multi-String value containing a list Library/QuickSearch or */QuickSearch pairs that will be
used to select documents to be added to the content cache directory. For example,
“EXLIB1/MS WORD,Test” where “EXLIB1” is the library name and “MS WORD,Test” is the
name of a quick search that will select all MS WORD documents with the word ‘Test’ in the
document content.

The */QuickSearch format is used to specify that a QuickSearch of the given name resides in
more than one library and the pre-cache process should execute the QuickSearch for each
library within which the QuickSearch resides. The actual QuickSearch definition does not
have to be the same in each library, just the name. The search for each library is executed
individually so the actual QuickSearch definition can be tailored to the library within which it
resides.

2.1.10 Search Across Multiple Libraries with Different Schema’s (DM-33169)

The recommendation when setting up multiple Libraries to be remote to each other is to always use
the same schema and Library type (Legal with Legal) for this type of configuration to allow the users
to perform searches across all the Libraries.

In environments where the Library schemas do not match you will now be able to perform a search
across multiple Libraries instead of receiving an error message relating to the different SQL
structures.

2.1.11 Office 2013 Translations (DM-33576)
The translated resource files for the DM Integration with Microsoft Office 2013 have been included
with Patch 6 and can be found in the Office 2013 Translations sub-folder.

The translated files for Dutch, French, German, Italian and Spanish are included.

Installation
20. The AppTrans.ini and AppTrans1.ini files replace the English ones that were installed with
the eDOCS DM 5.3.1 Office 2013 Integration v2.2 (x64) or (x86).MSI installation
21. Copy the translated AppTrans.ini and AppTrans1.ini files to the C:\Program Files (x86)\Open
Text\DM Extensions directory and replace the existing versions
22. Copy the EIRes.dll to the C:\Program Files (x86)\Open Text\DM Extensions\EMail Integration
directory and replace the existing file
23. Restart the Office Applications and DM.exe.

The eDOCS DM 5.3.1 Silent Install Samples document provides additional information on the
scripting and configuration options that can be used for silent deployments. This document can be
referenced for modifying the eDOCS DM 5.3.1 Office 2013 Integration v2.2 (x64) or (x86).MSI
programs to include the translated files for your respective language.

2.1.12 Outlook Startup Change – Delay Logon (DM-34435)


The DM Extension for Outlook can be configured to load on Startup or delayed until the end user
selects a DM action.

The Delay Logon feature can be configured by the following registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Hummingbird\EMail Integration\1.5\Settings
DelayLogon (DWORD) -> 0:off/ 1:on

If the logon dialog box is canceled, then the user will not have the opportunity to log into DM
Extensions until Outlook has been restarted.

2.1.13 Email Filing QuickFile Options (DM-34829)

When using the DM Extension for Outlook and Email Filing together users can drag and drop emails
from Outlook to DM, or save to a DM Folder using the QuickFile feature and the emails would be
copied to the Email Filing Service and saved into DM in the background.

The Registry setting to control this with DM 5.3.1 Patch 5 and Email Filing 4.2:

OpenText eDOCS DM Version 5.3.1 Suite Patch 6 Release Notes


20
REG_DWORD: SaveToEmailFiling

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Hummingbird\EMail Integration\1.5\Settings

SaveToEmailFiling = 0 Normal DM save

SaveToEmailFiling = 1 Save using Email Filing.

With this setting if the Exchange Cached Mode setting was disabled in Outlook the save was
successful but the user receive a warning message that the operation “Can’t move the items” from
Outlook.

New configuration with DM 5.3.1 Patch 6 and Email Filing 4.3:

SaveToEmailFiling = 2 Save using Email Filing with Exchange Cached Mode disabled in
Outlook.

This configuration option no longer presents the user with the “Can’t move the items” warning
message.

2.2 Language-Neutral Patch


The eDOCS DM 5.3.1 Suite Patch 6 is language neutral, which means it can be applied against any
translated version of eDOCS DM 5.3.1 Patch 1 or later.

2.3 Backwards Compatibility


The eDOCS DM Server 5.3.1 Patch 6 software is backwards compatible with the DM client
components of eDOCS DM 5.1.0.5, 5.2.1, 5.3.0, 5.3.1.

Note: The new Unicode metadata feature for profile fields is not enabled by default
because it is not backwards compatible with the previous versions of DM Extensions. If
you upgrade the DM Server and Library to support this new feature, you can only use
DM 5.3.1 Patch 1 (or later) Extensions in the environment.

Important! For customers using DM Extensions 5.1.0.5 or 5.2.1, we recommend you


upgrade as soon as possible. These versions are currently in Past-Maintenance mode
and you should not plan to keep these older versions on any end user machines for
extended periods of time. For information about the release dates and subsequent
support expiry dates for OpenText eDOCS products, consult the table provided at the
following location:

4 Installation and Upgrade Notes
4.1 Patch Rollback
The benefit of using the .msp type of patch installation is that you can easily remove eDOCS DM
5.3.1 patches without removing eDOCS DM itself. For example, if you remove Patch 6, the original
eDOCS DM 5.3.1 Patch 1 installation and setup programs remain unchanged.

To perform a Rollback of a DM patch from the Control Panel’s Program and Features, you will need to
select the Show Updates check box on the window dialog, and then select the respective Open Text
eDOCS module. The patch that is currently applied will appear under the selected item; select the
Uninstall option to uninstall the Patch.

4.2 Running Library Generator


If you are upgrading from DM 5.1.0.5, DM 5.2.1, 5.3.0 or eDOCS DM 5.3.1 (without Patch 1), you
must run Library Generator on all DM Libraries. If you are upgrading from DM 5.3.1 Patch 1 or later,
running Library Generator is NOT required.

4.3 eDOCS DM 5.3.1 Suite Patch 2 Web Server MSI


In order to support Microsoft Window Server 2012 and Internet Information Server (IIS) 8, a new
English MSI was introduced to install the English DM Web Server on this platform in DM 5.3.1 Suite
Patch 2. This MSI is provided with Suite Patch 6 for convenience and is required to be run on any
English DM Web Server that is currently at DM 5.3.1 Patch 1.

4.4 eDOCS DM 5.3.1 Web Server Translated Versions


If upgrading a DM Web Server other than English the following upgrade steps need to be followed:

 If upgrading from a DM 5.3.1 Web Server that has already been upgraded to Patch 3 or
greater, you can apply the DM 5.3.1 Web Server Multilingual Patch 6.

 If upgrading from an initial DM 5.3.1 Web Server Patch 1 or installing a new Web Server
1. Installs the eDOCS DM 5.3.1 French Web Server.msi (Patch 1) (Or other translated
language)
2. Run the DM WebServer Installer Update.exe
3. Apply the eDOCS DM 5.3.1 Web Server Multilingual Patch 6.msp

OpenText will support customers who run DM products on supported operating systems, irrespective
of whether they are running in a virtual environment or not.

OpenText supports "operating systems," not specific hardware configurations. Accordingly, OpenText
does not explicitly support the virtualization application since it operates as a hardware abstraction
layer.

The virtualization applications, such as VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V and Citrix XenServer, support a
set of certified operating systems and hardware, and the customer and the virtualization vendor will
be responsible for any interactions or issues that arise at the hardware or operating system layer as a

OpenText eDOCS DM Version 5.3.1 Suite Patch 6 Release Notes


31
result of their use of virtualization software.

OpenText will not require customers to recreate and troubleshoot every issue in a non-virtual
environment; however, OpenText does reserve the right to request our customers to diagnose certain
issues in a native certified operating system environment without the virtual environment. OpenText
will only make this request when there is reason to believe that the virtual environment is a
contributing factor to the issue.

While DM products are expected to function properly in virtual environments, there might be
performance implications, which can invalidate DM's typical sizing and recommendations. Analysis
must be performed within the context of the specific application to be hosted in a virtual environment
to minimize potential resource contention, which can have significant impact on performance and
scalability, particularly under peak load.

typing text on search form into a search form. After typing 2 or 3 characters, the text may not
(DM-32269) appear for a few seconds. This issue is only observed with Windows
8 and Windows 8.1 Operating Systems and client machines with an
I7 processor.

Potential memory leak A potential memory leak has been found within .NET Framework 4.0
with .Net Framework 4.0 which, in turn, affects the DOCSFusion process. An upgrade to .Net
4.5 on all DM servers where the operating system permits will resolve
the issue.

The .NET Framework 4.5 is not supported on Windows Server 2003


and if you are experiencing this issue in your environment the
recommendation is to upgrade to a version of Windows Server which
supports the .NET Framework 4.5.

8 What’s New in eDOCS DM 5.3.1 (Past Patches)
8.1 New Features in DM 5.3.1 Patch 1
Version 5.3.1 Patch 1 OpenText Document Management, eDOCS DM Edition, included the following
new features.

8.1.1 Unicode Support


The eDOCS DM 5.3.1 release now includes support for Unicode columns for the PROFILE table. This
feature requires that the DM Server and all the DM Extensions clients be version 5.3.1 before this
feature is enabled. Once your environment is all DM 5.3.1, your DM Administrator can use the
Unicode Column Converter to convert the desired String columns from the PROFILE table to
NVarChar for Unicode support.

8.1.2 Support for Microsoft Office 2010 (64 bit)


Integration with Microsoft Office 2010 (64-bit version) Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Project and Visio and
Outlook are included with the eDOCS DM 5.3.1 Release.

8.1.3 DM API (64 bit)


In eDOCS DM 5.3.1, a new DM API 64-bit client standalone MSI is now available. This allows custom
64 bit applications to use a 64 bit API to integrate with the DM Server.

8.1.4 Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Support


In eDOCS DM 5.3.1, Microsoft SQL Server 2012 is a supported database environment.

8.1.5 New MSI for the DM Admin Tools


eDOCS DM 5.3.1 now includes a separate MSI for the DM Admin Tools so administrators can install
the tools on any server or workstation.

8.1.6 64 Bit DM Viewer for Windows 7 64 bit machines


A 64-bit DM Viewer is now installed on Windows 7 64-bit workstations.

8.1.7 New Save User Interface Profile Form Selection Options


When saving new documents, if you want the user to see the Profile Form selection, but not be able
to edit it, use the following settings:

<ProfileSelectComboVisible>True</ProfileSelectComboVisible>
<ProfileFormComboEnabled>False</ProfileFormComboEnabled>

When editing existing Profiles, if you want the user to see the Profile Form selection, but not be able
to edit it, use the following settings:

<ProfileSelectComboVisibleOnShow>True</ProfileSelectComboVisibleOnShow>
<ProfileFormComboEnabledOnShow>False</ProfileFormComboEnabledOnShow>
8.1.8 New Help Files for DM Extensions
The DM Extensions 5.3.1 help files are now Windows CHM compiled HTML files and no longer
require that the WinHelp program be installed on the Windows Desktop.

8.1.9 Document Attachments Open with Launch Method for the Attachment
Type Rather than the Parent Launch Method
As of eDOCS DM 5.3.1 Patch 1, you can now open an attachment to an eDOCS DM document with
the attachment's launch method, rather than using the attachment's parent launch method. For
example, if you perform a Compare operation on a Microsoft Word document and save the results as
a PDF file (as an attachment to the Word document), when you open it within the DM Extensions, the
attachment opens in Adobe Acrobat instead of Word.

8.2 New Features in DM 5.3.1 Patch 2


Version 5.3.1 Patch 2 OpenText Document Management, eDOCS DM Edition, included the following
new Platforms.

8.2.1 Windows 8 Desktop Support

experience whether interacting with eDOCS DM content from a Windows 8 desktop or on the road
from a Windows RT-powered tablet.

8.4 New Features in DM 5.3.1 Patch 4


Version 5.3.1 Patch 4 OpenText Document Management, eDOCS DM Edition, included the following
new feature.

As of eDOCS DM Suite Patch 4, Passive Integration will be offered for Adobe Acrobat and Adobe

Note: The installation of Passive Integration for Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader is a
manual process and is not part of the Suite Patch 4 MSP’s for eDOCS DM Explorer
Extensions.

You will need to manually add the eDOCSAcrobat.api/eDOCSReader.api file to the Adobe
directory. Locations for each supported version are listed below:

Adobe Reader 10: C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader 10.0\Reader\plug_ins

Adobe Reader 11: C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader 11.0\Reader\plug_ins

Adobe Acrobat 10: C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 10.0\Acrobat\plug_ins

Adobe Acrobat 11: C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 11.0\Acrobat\plug_ins

To achieve successful integration with Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader with eDOCS DM 5.3.1 Patch
4, the following launch method settings need to be configured, which are also available in the eDOCS
DM Administration Guide.

8.4.2 Search Enhancement (Not available with MS SQL 2005)


With eDOCS DM 5.3.1 Suite Patch 4 content searches have been optimized to reduce the
number of SQL calls made to return a result set. This change will reduce the number of insert
statements being made, in return providing better performance.

Important

Microsoft SQL Server 2005 does NOT support this multi SQL insert
capability introduced in Suite Patch 4 and needs to be disabled. To
disable this feature the following DWORD value needs to be added to the
registry on all DM Servers in the environment:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Hummingbird\Docsf
usion\NoForInsertMultiples=0

Details about the NoForInsertMultiples key:

NoForInsertMultiples (DWORD)
This number defines the default behavior for how we handle Full Text
searching when inserting temporary rows into the FULLTEXT_JOIN table.
This value is active by default (even when the key is absent). To disable
the multi insert mode set this value equal to 0.
Value = 0 – indicates that all full text joining records will NOT use
batching of INSERT commands
Value > 0 – indicates that full text joining, will use batch SQL INSERT
statements – and the value indicates the size of the INSERT batch
This value indicates the size of the batch inserts (max. 1000 – anything
higher than 1000 will use 1000). The default value is 1000.

8.5 New Features in DM 5.3.1 Patch 5
Version 5.3.1 Patch 5 OpenText Document Management, eDOCS DM Edition, included the following
new feature.

8.5.1 Multi-Value Field Support for OTRM


As of eDOCS DM 5.3.1 Suite Patch 5, support for the use of multi-value fields with OpenText Records
Management for eDOCS (OTRM) is available. When using a multi-value column, the application-
metadata.xml file needs to be edited to take advantage of the new feature in Suite Patch 5. eDOCS
DM stores the multi-value data as a semi-colon delimited field on the Profile table. This column needs
to be added to the SQL query stored in the <eDOCSSQL> tag. A <PropertyType> must also be
added to the .xml file to reference the multi-value data which specifies the NEW MultiValue=true
attribute which must be set to true as below:
For example:
<propertyType Name="authors" MappedValue="[AUTHOR_LINK]" DataType="string"
MaxLength="30" Searchable="true" MultiValue="true" />

If the multi-value attribute is missing from the application-metadata.xml file, the data will be stored
as a string in Content Server rather than multi-value fields.

For more information on the configuration of the application-metadata.xml file, please refer to the
Open Text Records Management Integration with eDOCS DM Version 1.0 Installation and
Configuration Guide:

https://knowledge.opentext.com/knowledge/cs.dll/open/20452288

8.5.2 Ability to Hide Document Type in Dynamic Views for Groups and Not
Only Users
Prior to eDOCS DM 5.3.1 Suite Patch 5, in Dynamic Views DM Extensions you can hide Document
Types on a user by user basis. As of eDOCS DM 5.3.1 Suite Patch 5, the ability to hide Document
Types for a group is now available and supported.

NOTE: Manual manipulation of the eDOCS DM Database is required to use this new feature.

In the eDOCS DM Database, in the Subscriptions table, the PERSONORGROUP column which
currently holds the ID of the user that the Document Type is hidden for needs to be updated with the
ID of the group that will now have the Document Type hidden.
