Data field properties - M-Files - Authentication tab

Applications module Data field with file data type and de.uplanet.lucy.server.mfiles.connector.MFilesFileHandler handler Properties

Current logged-in user

The currently logged in portal user will be used for the M-Files authentication. If there is not any M-Files session for this user and the option "Username/Password" was selected as the authentication method in the configuration, then the portal user will be requested to login to M-Files.

Static user

There are examples of application, where access to M-Files should always be made with one user, irrespective of which portal user is currently logged in. This is for example the case if there is not a M-Files user for every portal user or if documents from Intrexx should fundamentally be saved under the same user name in M-Files. To do that a so-called static user can be selected in the dialog. This relates to an Intrexx user, to whom an M-Files user account has been assigned in the M-Files configuration. A static user can also be directly setup with this dialog. As soon as such a user is entered in the file field, then all access to M-Files takes place with the data group of this M-Files user account. This means that an interactive login to M-Files is no longer necessary in the portal. This also makes simple Single Sign-On scenarios possible without having to revert to the Kerberos authentication.
