10.11.Configuring aliases

What are aliases?
Aliases are multiple folder paths with different names which point to the same folder/set of files.

Currently contentACCESS uses aliases by mapping remote location paths to local paths, which is a must-to configuration by the Remote shortcutting job. (For more information refer to section Configuration of Remote shortcutting job.)


Configuring an alias for the Remote shortcutting job.
If you are shortcutting remote shares, but contentACCESS has archived the matching files on a local share, the shortcutting job must “pair” the remote share with the local share to be able to replace the matching files with shortcuts on the remote share and to open them. This “pairing” by the job can be done only if remote and local shares are “paired” in contentACCESS, too (i.e. Aliases are specified).

Navigate to File Archive ⇒ Settings ⇒ Aliases tab on the Central Administration’s ribbon. On the Aliases page click on + new:

cACCESS 2.9 doc 148

The Alias repository will open. The repository requires to specify the

  • Original location: select the file archive root folder from the dropdown list; this is the file path used by the archive job
  • Remote location: add the matching remote file path that needs to be replaced with shortcuts Further click on Save. The Remote location that you configured here can be selected on the Remote shortcutting job’s configuration page later on.

    cACCESS 2.9 doc 149

    Note: A path extension can be added when setting the remote file location on the Remote shortcutting job’s configuration page.
