Setting up default file storage

External File Storage allows you to choose how to store the attached files for each of the bpm’online sections.

This setting is configured in the [Default file storage] lookup. You can select one of the following storage types:

  • [Database] – storage of files directly in the database, associated with the application bpm’online;
  • [File system] – storage of files to the file system on the bpm’online application server;
  • [Microsoft OneDrive] – storage of files to the cloud service Microsoft OneDrive;
  • [Google Drive] – storage of files to the cloud service Google Drive;
  • [Dropbox] – storage of files to the cloud service Dropbox.

    Note. Files attached to the records of partitions for which the configuration is not configured in the [Default file storage] lookup, saved in the application server’s file system.

    When adding files to the [Attachments] detail, for each of the entries the storage icon is displayed depending on the type:

    • – database;
    • – file system or cloud service.
