Is there an interface to automatically copy files to SharePoint in ALIM 16.4.2? The manual says the eB SharePoint Service is not available that release. Is there a replacement or workaround?
I have been told the SharePoint connector was removed with no replacement and that the alternative is BECS + Interoperability Service. However, we may not have the interoperability bits for 16.4.2.

Hi Carma, how you doing? Do we have the bits for 16.7.2?
Hi Nikhil, could you tell me what is the recommended approach today to integrate eB v16.7.2 with SharePoint? Kind regards,
You can use BECS with eB 16.7.2 for SharePoint Integration.
Understood Nikhil, but would you provide the bits for that or we have to develop the connector from scratch?
As not many people were using the SharePoint connector, we have not replaced the functionality with an out-of-the-box solution. Bentley enterprise connection services (BECS) is the toolkit to connect eB with other systems, the actual connectors will need to be written.
The original SharePoint connector had two components:
Hi Nikhil, we have full skills to develop eB Web Plug-Ins and different kind of integrations through eB Proxy API, could you share with us technical documentation about how to develop a connector for BECS? We'll try to understand how complex would be to develop a PoC to address item 2.
Thanks a lot,
