I know this post is quite old, but I am facing the same problem. When I try to check-in any files, that particular option is grayed-out. I've also read about this in the other forum discussions. None of the proposed solutions has helped yet. Anybody around with some ideas?
If nothing has worked for you yet, you could try the demo version of FM12 to see if this behaves better with Sharepoint. There has been some work done on the connectors in the the two releases since FM10.
Also, are you fully patched in FM10? The latest version was 10.0.2 (see: http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/product.jsp?product=22&platform=Windows)
Thanks for your quick response! I should have mentioned, that I was already trying FrameMaker 12 and we are using SharePoint 2013. As this didn't work and had tried my luck with RoboHelp 11. Now what seems a bit odd to me is the fact it is running with RoboHelp and its SharePoint Connector. When I try the same with FM12 it won't let me check in any files, RH works fine. I think from that perspective it not authorization related.
Just to be sure -- have you saved the file before trying to check it in?
It's a litle while since I've worked with FM and the SharPoint connector, and I no longer have the ability to test this. But when you check out a file, Adobe creates a local copy. You may need to save the local copy before you can check it back in.
Jim, Thanks for your hint. Unfortunately I've had also tried that. We've now switched to SVN as an alternative option.
It has been the same for every version from 9 forward. Should 12 be any different?
I use Adobe FrameMaker because it's the best solution available. What incenses me is that Adobe IGNORES these kinds of problems.
If you have CMS integration with SharePoint, DON'T MAKE YOUR CUSTOMERS RESPONSIBLE FOR TROUBLESHOOTING IT!!!!!
Stop acting like Miicrosoft!!!!!
Can you please tell me which type of authentication is used in your sharepoint setup i.e. Classic mode or Claim based.
I would like to see an admin guide that shows how to configure SP 2010 to work with FM 12. I cannot check files in. I can upload. I can check out. I cannot checkin. After I checkout, I can't even check in from the SP web interface.
