Add a new file in a repositoryTo add new file in the repository, user must have the UPLOAD permission. if it is the case, the upload form under the files list is active. User can click on the "Browse" button to choose a local file and then upload it with the "upload" button. Figure 3 - The upload actionBy default, the uri of the new file is a generated id (to avoid the same name for several nodes). For example, http://potiron.loria.fr/projects/test/download/0d7e7ae67f00000100dc99bbc9953c16 is a path to an uploaded file in repository http://potiron.loria.fr/projects/test/download . You can change this path moving the node under http://potiron.loria.fr/projects/test/download/newFileName .Note : you can add a file in a repository creating a new file under the repository node with the basic resource creation way.
