Read access to files and List access to directories inside the private directory can be granted to other CommuniGate Pro users and external "guests", using the protected <accessPwd> File Attribute.
Each <accessPwd> attribute should have a <key/> element containing a random string - the access-password. It is recommended to add <EMail/> element(s) with the E-mail address(es) of the users to whom this access-password has been sent.
<accessPwd> <key>dyf984897498ih12ui3u-3y887</key> <EMail realName="User Name">email@example.com</EMail> <EMail>firstname.lastname@example.org</EMail> </accessPwd>
When this attribute is added to theprivate directory, it enables an alternative access path to all files within that directory and its subdirectories:
If this attribute is added to the private/dir1/dir2 directory, it enables an alternative access path to all files within that directory and its subdirectories:
If the XML attribute listed in the example above is added to the private/dir1/dir2 directory file attributes, the user can compose a Personal Site URL using the alternative path:
The user then can send this URL to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org and other addresses. The recipients can access this file.name file by following this link.
The user can revoke this access right by removing this <accessPwd/> attribute.
Alternative file paths can be used in FTP and TFTP protocols, and in all other CommuniGate Pro components that access the Account File Storage.
