“XMetaL Connector” must be used to build an integration with a CMS in order for the Repository menu to be enabled. XMetaL Connector is a set of APIs that interacts with the Repository menu as well as other functionality, including customizations that are specifically designed to be used with XMetaL Connector such as the DITA authoring functionality. When a CMS integration is built via other means this functionality will not be available.
JustSystems would prefer that all of our partners use XMetaL Connector to build their integrations and almost all of them do. You may wish to raise this issue with Siemens if you would like this functionality to be available with their integration.
