FileWalker properties - General settings tab


Enter the name of the connection here.


Files located in the directory entered here will be displayed in the browser by the connected FileWalker element.


Opens a dialog where a directory can be selected.

Standard client path

Here, the directory for access to clients will be entered. As the mapping for client and server access (such as in heterogeneous network environments) may vary, the directory path and the standard client path can differ.

Consider user file permissions

With this setting, only files for users with sufficient permissions will be shown.

Enable search (generate search index)

By selecting this option, a search index of the files embedded via FileWalker will be generated.

Always use in global search

Makes the index available via the global search of the portal.

Hit visualization style

  • No summary

    Only the title, file name and path are shown

  • Document summary

    Document properties are also shown

  • Highlight hits in document text

    Graphically highlights hits in the document

This setting will lead to both greater system loads during the query as well as to an increased index as the file contents must then be added to the index.

Standard character set

Here, the character set which will be used for the search will be defined.
