Document Manager modern interface (2019)¶
This module is part of Tuleap Enterprise. It might not be available on your installation of Tuleap.
The new interface of document manager provides a modern way to interact with document manager. This new interface has been designed for most common actions.
Drag and drop and multi upload¶
The major difference between both user interfaces, is that the new document manager now supports the drag and drop and multi upload.
Drag and drop is not supported for IE11. Please use Edge, Firefox or Chrome instead.
In current folder¶
If you drop a document in the current folder, it will add it into the folder content
In a given folder¶
If you drop a document in a specific folder, it will add it inside
Create a new version of a file¶
If you drop a document on an existing file, it will create a new version of the file
Actions on document¶
Each item of the new document manager now has a quick look button, it will enable you to see document metadata and actions you can do. If the document is an image or an embedded file, it will display a preview of the document.
When accessing the quick look, use the friendly URL to share the link with your teammates.
Actions on document¶
All the actions are accessible through the quick look drop down.
- The actions available are the following:
Create a new version for a document
Create a new folder or a new document for a folder
Update properties of your document
Access to the notifications, that means, do you want to be inform when a document or a folder is updated ?
Permissions (available for the project administrators)
Cut/Paste a document or a folder
Delete document or folder
Lock/Unlock a document
Download a folder as a zip archive
Download a folder as a zip archive¶
You can download folders as a zip archive. Every sub-folder, file and embedded file in this folder will be downloaded as a zip archive. Embedded files are saved as HTML files. The zip archive is made of the last version of the files.
Please note that, even if the file is a
.zip there is actually no compression of the files. The
.zip is used
to create an archive that can be downloaded but the server won’t compress the files within because it would be too
heavy to manage for the Tuleap server.
Downloading a folder as a zip archive is subjected to size limitations that can be enforced by your site administrator. By default, users may not download folders with a size above 2 Gigabytes (GB).
If Tuleap encounters a problem while processing one of the files (the file is
corrupted, not found, not readable or Tuleap has not enough memory), it will
add a file named
TULEAP_ERRORS.txt at the root of the zip archive. This
file will list all files with issues that could not be downloaded. If it
happens, please let your site administrator know.
For Mac OS X users, there is a special limitation: if the folder has a size above 4 Gigabytes (GB) or contains more than 64000 files, the native Mac OS archive extraction tool might not be able to open the archive. Tuleap will warn you if you encounter this case.
View the approval status¶
The new interface displays the approval table badge next to the document. You don’t have to get to the approval table anymore to have that information. In the tree view, a small coloured badge, depending on the status review, is displayed on documents having an approval table.
Administration actions handled by the old interface¶
On this new interface, we chose to improve the most frequent actions.
- Here are the administration actions still handled by the old interface:
Advanced and simple search
When clicking on it, you will be redirected to the old interface.
- New interface comes with new REST API routes. If you wish to use it, note that the following are not available (only on SOAP):
Switch from docman moder interface to the old one¶
Please note that each user can switch between the legacy and the new UI at any moment.
