enaio® redline is based on state-of-the-art technologies and a future-proof microservices architecture. Every client application created with enaio® redline can be extended by means of scripting, plugins, and custom states, and is adaptable to individual customer requirements.

If required, business logic can be expanded on the server side with its own microservices.
The latest technologies, which communicate via open standards, combined with a responsive HTML5 web client: enaio® redline points the way to the information management of the future.

API First

enaio® redline is developed according to the API first paradigm and represents a content services architecture.

Integration First

enaio® redline offers a well documented and complete REST API – the same API that enaio® redline and its webclient is built with.

Cloud enabled

enaio® redline runs natively using Kubernetes or in a Docker container.

enaio® Everywhere

The modern and consistent microservices architecture facilitates system operation and allows scaling without bulky application server clusters. The optional web client can be used effortlessly from anywhere, even in slow networks and mobile.


enaio® redline is based on the modular and decoupled microservices architecture and thus guarantees a clearly defined development and deployment cycle that also enables agile methods.

Great Microservices

The services are easy to extend and replace. In this way the platform ensures that the requirements of users and system integrators can be responded to quickly and precisely. Thanks to independent microservices future updates will be easier to deploy and secure.


The basic principle of enaio® redline as a Content Services Framework is to find 1 specific document out of 109 in less than a second. All other functions and concepts are measured against this requirement.

The True Power of enaio®

The ability to synchronize, automatically monitor and launch individual services (rather than entire application servers) puts availability, scalability and fault tolerance at your fingertips at all times.


Each part of the application can be scaled as required and run in as many instances as necessary. Peak loads and resource bottlenecks in the CPU and memory are thus avoided.


This also applies to the backend: Here you can extend the existing modules with your own special business logic.

Or you can integrate third-party technologies by complementing and completing the enaio® redline’s standardized microservices architecture with dedicated microservices.


If necessary enaio® redline has a responsive, device-independent HTML5 web client that interacts statelessly with the microservices.

Unique and Complex Customer Projects

Projects that inspire

The architecture

enaio® redline is based on scalable content services that communicate via REST-API. They are implemented using non-proprietary technologies such as Springboot, Angular or Elasticsearch.

All infrastructure and content services can be updated and maintained independently of each other. If a microservice fails, a new instance starts and automatically takes over the open tasks.

In addition, enaio® redline has extensive design and administration tools that provide developers with an easy-to-use interface for configuration, design, and maintenance.

Cutting-edge technology for individual solutions

Strong content services

Essential functions of an ECM system such as versioning, archiving, rendition, and records management are included in enaio® redline. Familiar workflows from Business Process Management (BPM) are also already integrated and ready-to-use.

Project-specific customizing

enaio® redline offers various editor and design tools that allow graphical modeling of data and interfaces. Adjustments are possible with the help of scripts and plugins. Trouble-free implementation of multilingual clients and the use of Unicode characters are also possible.

Seamless integration

Common enterprise solutions such as SAP, Microsoft Office, Exchange Server or Microsoft Dynamics AX and NAV can be connected via existing interfaces. At the same time, enaio® redline is universally deployable via REST-API and client plug-ins.

The tools for admin teams


The Services Admin ensures the efficient operation of the enaio® redline applications. In this web-based application, administrators control and manage the running system via a web interface. Developers use the Services Admin to test functionality and performance.


In the enaio® redline management studio you will find functions for organizational tasks. These include the creation and administration of users and groups, system configuration and monitoring or process management of all relevant business processes.


With the .NET application enaio® redline designer, different applications can be developed consistently and complete solutions can be versioned. Data models (or parts of them) can also be transferred from a project into new applications, which simplifies the porting of your apps and clients.

Own clients for own projects

Client scripts
Easily extend applications

Your customers can immediately use a modeled business application in the web client. You can use client scripts to extend the behavior of input masks in business applications. For example, you can check entries, preassign values to fields, or lock them at runtime.
Client scripts can respond flexibly to events of the web client in the data masks of modeled objects.

Own plugins
Integration made easy

As a system integrator, specialized applications can be easily customized further. With enaio® redline you develop project-specific plug-ins and therefore extend the web client.
Plugins could, for example, display special file formats such as CAD or medical formats or integrate additional information from external systems or the web.

Project views
Your system. Your interface.

You can go even further by developing project-specific views to further enhance the web client.
The views look like a completely new page in the web client. You are completely free to display or edit any information in the client.
The welcome page of the web client can also be adapted to the customer’s corporate identity.

Integration in other systems – e.g. SAP Hybris

Due to the 100% consistently implemented REST API concept, not only can individual clients be developed but the enaio® redline interface can be integrated into other applications or clients of other systems. This is shown here using SAP Hybris as an example.

Using enaio® redline, any documents can be added to the document data in SAP Hybris – e.g. contracts or correspondence with a customer by post or e-mail.

Just in case: The HTML5 web client

As a Content Services Framework, enaio® redline demonstrates its strengths not only on the server side but also during integration via REST:

With the web client, enaio® redline can be used on many devices without installation – whether at home, in the office or on the train. enaio® redline is the modern alternative for all those who want to offer their customers a simple user experience, comfortable connection, and maximum flexibility.

With extensive customizing options, the enaio® redline framework can be used to develop powerful specialist applications that can be flexibly extended on the client and server side.
