Issue

How do I make a direct link to a file or folder inside a File Service node ?


Solution

webNetwork 6.x

To link to a file create a Standard Link tile that points to:
/servlet/com.stoneware.servlets.SwIFTGetFileServlet/New%20Text%20Document.txt?fileName=/Home/Document.txt

To link to a folder (file node) using MyFiles, create a Standard Link tile that points to:
/swFileServices/explorer/index.jsp?root=/Home 

To link to a folder (file node) using webStorage, create a Standard Link tile that points to:
/swFileServices/reach/index.jsp?root=/Home


If you are trying to do this by just adding a MyTiles tile to your personal desktop, you will need to add your Cloud URL address for example:
https://cloud.example-cloud.com/swFileServices/reach/index.jsp?root=/Home

If you are NOT authenticated then you can use the following example to have the user authenticate first:
https://cloud.example-cloud.com/index.jsp?redirectTo=/swFileServices/swfile/view/Home/test.doc
