CMIS is one of many standards supported by the WSO2 Governance Registry. Read more on Supported APIs & Standards for a complete list of standards supported by WSO2 Governance Registry.


CMIS (Content Management Interoperability Services) is an open standard that allows various content management systems which are isolated/separated to inter-operate over the internet.

CMIS specification support is implemented in the WSO2 Governance Registry and exposed as a web application in the product. You can simply point a CMIS compatible client to the Governance Registry and work with it.


WSO2 Governance Registry does not support creation of checkpoints inside mounted locations, which is a requirement of the CMIS specification. Therefore, you cannot use the CMIS API to work inside a mounted collection. If you want to work inside a mounted collection start a new instance of WSO2 Governance Registry with the mounted database as its local database and connect to it instead. For more information please read Remote Instance and Mount Configuration Details and Database Configuration Details.
