Resource Menu

The download area allow users to share files, without synchronisation.

A "Download Area" (or "Files Repository") is a node which allows users to create new File resource. These files are stored as children of the repository.

The view of a repository is the list of the files of which he is the father.

Users can see (and download) files only if they have the READ permission on the given file (see File documentation for more informations).

The download area has two properties :

  • a name
  • a description

You can change these properties editing the resource ("edit resource" link in resource menu).

Add a new file in a repository

To 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.

By default, the uri of the new file is a generated id (to avoid the same name for several nodes). For example, is a path to an uploaded file in repository . You can change this path moving the node under .

Note : you can add a file in a repository creating a new file under the repository node with the basic resource creation way.
