 +====== Configuring iView 6 Front End Options ======
 +
 +
 +===== Global Options =====
 +
 +
 +From the iView home page take the option: ​ iView Setup.
 +
 +{{pub:​iview6:​iview6uiconfig.png?​600|}}
 +
 +
 +  * **License File**: The Zend Server ID's display at the top of the page. Use the file dialog \\
 +to upload a front end license file. When licensed, the Server ID licensed displays in green.
 +  * **iView Schema**: enter the iView library name ( contents of data area DSIVIEWLIB ). This library\\
 +contains the meta data and other tables needed by the web server.
 +  * **iView Archive Root**: This is the root directory under which are stored the archived documents.\\
 +This name is stored in data area DSIVIEWDIR.
 +  * **iView Script URL**: The apparent subdirectory to the browser. The default will probably be correct.
 +THis is the location of the scripts and front end configuration.
 +  * **Database**:​ DB2 database to which iView should connect. *LOCAL is the usual setting but you can use
 +any defined database in WRKRDBDIRE.
 +  * **DB Username and password**: This is an user profile used to connect to the DB2 database. ​
 +  * **IBM i5 Server IP:Port**: The IP of the server hosting the front end and port used by the iView Apache instance.\\
 +Normally ​ this will be the IP of the IBM i server lpar and port 80. If using port 80 it can be omitted \\
 +since it is the default http port. Port 10088 is the default install port for the Zend Server.
 +  * **iView Admin Profile** ( *ANYONE or user profile ): User profile to administer the front end. They must be added\\
 +as a user in the User Manager.
 +  * **iMail Library**: If using iMail on this lpar and you wish to email archived documents through it, enter the IBM i \\
 +library name here.
 +  * **Jobqueue library/​name**:​ iMail email sends are sent through a jobqueue for processing. Specify that jobqueue here.\\
 +It must be accessible to the Zend Server and Zend profiles. QGPL/​QS36EVOKE,​ which is multi-threaded as shipped from IBM,\\
 +is probably a good setting.
 +  * **Log file library/​name**:​ Location of the access log file. Ships with a default that exists.
 +  * **Maximum upload file size ( bytes )**: Maximum file size for dropped files.
 +
 +
 +
 +
 +
 +===== Users and Groups =====
 +
 +In iView 6 users, groups and access must be defined in the front end.\\
 +Prior implementations used a simpler access control mechanism defined in greenscreen.\\
 +Any existing security implementation is ignored by iView 6.
 +
 +{{pub:​iview6:​usermgr.png?​600|}}
 +
 +  * **Users**: ​ Add a user to iView. If you are authenticating via greenscreen userid and password this\\
 +user must also exist in the IBM i user profiles. Most implementations use this authentication method.
 +  * **Groups**: Define groups and add users to groups, purely for convenience.
 +  * **Access**: All iView archives will be listed here. Grant access to users and/or groups as you see fit.
 +
 +Access now defaults to read access, "​r",​ by default for backward compatibility. Read/Write "​rw"​ access\\
 +allows users to add to the archive by dragging and dropping to the browser, and to delete from the archive.
 +
 +
 +
 +
 +
 +
 +
 +
 +===== Content Types =====
 +
 +iView 6 permits binary archiving, i.e. an authorized user may drag/drop any type of file\\
 +from their desktop into the archive. In order for the web server to properly serve the file\\
 +to the browser the content type must be configured.
 +
 +Note that browsers are designed to work with certain types of documents and the prompting for download\\
 +is the default behaviour when the browser does not know how to handle the file type. Even correct\\
 +configuration of the content type may  not prevent this.
 +
 +{{pub:​iview6:​iviewcontenttypes.png?​600|}}
 +
 +
 +A list of internet media types can be found here:  [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Internet_media_type]]
 +
 +iView will use this configuration in its instructions to the browser. \\
 +
 +For content type, it will issue this instruction: ​ Content-type:​ <content type>
 +
 +For disposition:​
 +
 +if the disposition is attachment, it will issue this instruction: ​ Content-Disposition:​ attachment; filename=<​fileName>​\\
 +Otherwise it will issue this instruction: ​ Content-Disposition:​ <content disposition>​
 +
 +**Important**:​ Enter the file extensions in lower case, and enter the content type and disposition in mixed case as appropriate.
