WIndows Client / API supporting Drag and Drop Load
« on: October 22, 2019, 04:21:11 AM »
Hi,
we are curios to know.,
If the OD support the Windows drag and Drop Document to load directly via Windows Clients or thru any API calls.
As ODWEK function "StoreDocument" still requirs the Metadata to be send as part of the Docuemtn to be loaded. Is there any way this kind of functionality supported by Ondemand to drag and drop and Ingest the document directly.,

If any please suggest
Archive Product version are using is as follow
=> OD Server 9.5.0.12(Linux)
=> ODWEK 9.0(Solaris)
=> Oracle 11g DB
=> TSM 7.1 storage

You input is much appreciated.
thanks for all your support..

Hi Yousef.

I know this type of functionality is desirable (and yes, even possible) but it's not really what CMOD is for.  When you store one document at a time, there's not a lot of benefit to just putting it in a filesystem.  In fact, you'll create a lot of overhead (database rows in the System Log, inodes in the cache, and metadata inside TSM) for very little benefit.

CMOD's big advantages are it's voracious appetite for documents that are all very much the same, with automatic indexing and amazing data compression.. not one-off uploads from end users.

You might want to consider dropping these files into Content Manager or Filenet, and once they've been through a specific workflow, archive them into CMOD for long-term safekeeping.

Thaks a lot JD,
It clearly explains, As we thought you clarified us,  that CMOD is not designed for such file Ingestion via Drag and Drop.
Just a quick final question: Even CMOD version 10.1 or New version planned to support such functionality in the future?

Thanks a lot for your timely response and support.

Hi Yousef. 

Having a user add a document to CMOD was supported, I think all the way back to IBM CMOD v8.  But like I said, it's not a very good idea.  The other problem is data quality.  What if a user puts in bad metadata?  The file will be lost forever, because people will search for 'good' metadata (customer number 12345) and it won't match because an end user might put a typo in that customer number (customer number 13245).

You can drag 'n' drop right now from ICN, at least in CMOD V10.

If properly configured - you simply drag a document to the search results screen.

I have not done this personally, have no more details.

I'll guess that being current on both CMOD and ICN is key.
