1. How do I add the Connector component to a lightning page?

1.1. Deployment Options

The iManage Connector component is designed for use within a lightning record page for any object in Salesforce.  

1.2. Deployment Use Cases

Navigate to the gear icon and select Edit Page.  You are now in the lightning page editor and will find the iManage Connector component in the list of components in the side menu on the left.

  • Library Name - Optionally, provide a library name to perform workspace oriented operations to that specific library only. 
  • Login As - Optionally, provide a user to automatically authenticate all iManage Work related operations within the component. The provided user must be enabled as Secured Login within iManage Setup. For more details follow this article.

When the Library Name is provided within the app builder deployment options, workspace operations are executed within the specified library, otherwise the workspace operations are executed within the library specified in the iManage Workspace Manager configuration for the object.

When a Login As user is provided within the app builder deployment options, all operations related to iManage Work are performed on behalf of that selected user. The current user cannot log in or log out from iManage Work from within the component. 

If the provided secured logged in user logs out from their environment, then the user is logged out from all instances of the components where the secured login has been setup to use as via the Login As option.
