efdManagementConfiguration.workfolder

Work folder is used by workflow service and web application as a file exchange location. It is used in the following ways:

 

EmailRetrieveAgent
Email retrieval agent strips attachments from email messages and saves them to the sub-folder .\EML\

FileMonitorAgent
Scans each of the defined channel folders and loads the EDD into the EQuIS datbase for subsequent processing if the EDD file name matches the file naming convention.

FtpRetrieveAgent
FTP retrieval agent poles a remote ftp folder and moves all files more than one minute old into the sub-folder .\FTP\

download.aspx and the /report/ web service cache user report output in the sub-folder \USER\######\ where ###### is the st_user.user_id value of the user running the report.

Remarks:

 

In an environment where multiple EQuIS databases are being hosted on the same application server, each database should be set to a unique path. EarthSoft highly recommends NOT sharing the same workfolder setting for two or more instances of either the EQuIS Enterprise Web Application or EQuIS Enterprise Workflow Service.

 

The Windows Identity of both the EQuIS Enterprise 6 Workflow and EQuIS Enterprise Web Application must both have Read/Write/Execute permission in this folder and it's sub folders. This folder should not be a subfolder of the EQuIS Enterprise Web Application. This folder should not be in any of the Windows Special Folders. The default value for this setting is C:\Windows\Temp\equisworkflow

 

The storage requirements on this folder can grow quite large depending on system usage. EQuIS Administrators should periodically review and purge the sub-folder .\Archive\. The number of files stored in the sub-folder .\USER\ can be as high as the number of users times the number of user reports. While old files are purged on demand, concerned systems administrators may purge any file that is older than the maximum value for ReportService CacheHours.

Note: There should only be one record for workfolder in ST_CONFIG. Additional workfolder records in ST_CONFIG will cause errors in accessing EQuIS Enterprise and EQuIS Professional.

 

If the ST_CONFIG table includes a second CONFIG_SECTION: efdManagementConfiguration and CONFIG_KEY = workfolder, the LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) may stop and prompt for a username and password to access Enterprise. This will prevent users from logging into EQuIS Professional and may log errors indicating that the username is invalid or that more than one user exists.
