To configure OpenText Core for the integration:

2. In the Content Server URL field, type the URL of your Content Server installation.

3. In the Content Server Display Name field, type the name you want to appear in the dialog that launches when you publish or import files with Content Server.


4. In the OTDS URL field, type the URL to the login page of your OpenText Directory Services installation.

5. In the OTDS Client-ID field, type the username of the user you added to the Non-synchronized User Partition in OTDS.

  • For example: coreclient

6. In the OTDS Secret field, type the password of the user you added to the Non-synchronized User Partition in OTDS.


7. Click Enable Content Server.

  • Note: The button text changes to Disable Content Server


8. To test the integration, in the left pane, click Files.

9. Click Import from My C…

10. If the Content Server file hierarchy appears in the dialog, the connection information is correct.


11. If the file hierarchy does not appear, the integration is not configured properly.


12. Edit the connection information on the Security page and click Resync Content Server


13. To disable the integration, click Disable Content Server.

  • I have created a Team Account (Trial Version) so I am seen as Admin, but still cannot see the OpenText Content Server Integration function as depicted above.

    What are the pre requisite for this function to be made available as we are trying to setup a demo of this feature in our demo environment.

  • Hi there, we recently subscribed to the Core & Core Document sign Trail, we also dont see the Opentext Content Server Integration option under Security in CORE. Can someone please point us in the right direction?

  • Hi @Johan Crafford ,

    Thank you for posting inquiry!

    There are some changes within Core Share Integration to Content Server. For reference, you may refer to this video guide on how to integrate it to your subscription

    Please let us know if there's anything else we can help you with, Johan!

    Thank you!
