How to host the Full Archive in SharePoint

In addition to hosting your Full Archive on a web server or in a shared network folder, you can also host the archive in SharePoint. 

In order to do so, the HTML and JSON file extensions in your archive will need to be changed to ASPX and JS extensions respectively. Once the file extensions have been changed, you can upload the archive to SharePoint and share the URL to the index.aspx file with the end-users. 

To change the file extensions automatically, you can use a built-in agent in your Seascape database. Open the Actions menu, and click Admin > Upload Web Viewer to SharePoint:

Next, select the root folder of the archive that you wish to update and click Open:

The agent will now start updating the file extensions in your archive (if needed, you can view the agent's progress using the Java Debug console in Notes). 

After the agent is finished, open your archive folder and verify that the extensions have been updated correctly:

You can now upload the Full Archive to a SharePoint library, and share the URL to the index.aspx file with your users.

Note: You should upload the archive to SharePoint by dragging & dropping the entire root folder of the Archive into SharePoint, and not by using the SharePoint upload utility.

When the users open the archive index.aspx file in their browser they will see the same archive interface as then the archive is opened from a web browser or a local workstation, and will be able to navigate the document views normally. 

Important:  In order for the aspx files to open in the web browser (as opposed to downloading as a normal file) the person who uploads the archive to SharePoint must have at least the “Design” permission or “Add and Customize Pages” site permission assigned. 

This permission is required only for the user who is uploading the archiveall other users will be able to view the aspx files in their web browser regardless of their respective permission level.
