WebDAV

Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) is an extension of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) that facilitates collaboration between users in editing and managing documents and files stored on World Wide Web servers.

In DataStoreDSX, WebDAV allows users to automatically open Word documents without having to first download them from the server. There are three WebDAV configurations available: File Explorer Endpoint, Forms Endpoint and Windows Endpoint.

WebDAV: File Explorer Endpoint

A File Explorer WebDAV endpoint allows users to connect to a mapped web location, open folders and edit documents which are stored in DataStoreDSX. Each new edit increases the document version by either a minor or a major version. (The DataStoreDSX WebDAV Explorer view does not support delete, copy, rename or new. When a user attempts to perform any of those commands, the command will fail.) Also, the files which are stored in DataStoreDSX are available to users according to previously set DataStoreDSX permissions and access rights.

WebDAV: Forms Endpoint

A Forms WebDAV endpoint allows users who log in to DataStoreDSX, using Forms authentication, to use WebDAV to edit documents returned in Searching Client.

WebDAV: Windows Endpoint

A Windows WebDAV endpoint allows users who log in to DataStoreDSX, using Windows authenti- cation, to use WebDAV to edit documents returned in Searching Client.

Windows Device

(See also, "Device")

A Windows Device is a storage system that DataStoreDSX applications can use to store, access and return data on demand.

Windows Endpoint (see "WebDAV: Windows Endpoint")

 

Workspace Pane

Also, in its Unassigned Documents folder, it displays the number of documents uploaded but not associated with (i.e. assigned to) any of the displayed Data Definitions.
