By default, Enterprise Portal does not display any documents. To display documents, you must map document types to document categories. Document categories determine which types of documents can be displayed on specific Enterprise Portal module sites. The list of document categories is fixed, but the categories are general enough to encompass most document types.

For example, if your organization uses Microsoft Visio® diagrams, you must map the .vsd document type to a document category in Enterprise Portal. If the .vsd document type is not mapped to a category, users cannot view Visio diagrams in Enterprise Portal.

After you map document types to document categories, you must specify which document categories are visible on each Enterprise Portal module site, and then specify which document categories are visible for external users. Document categories act as a sort of filter by allowing only users with the appropriate permissions to view certain types of documents, and then only on the designated module site.
