Connecting to WebDAV to work with portal pages and static content

To connect to WebDav to work with portal pages and static content, you enter the WebDAV entry URL.

About this task

The WebDAV entry URL is as follows:
  • For default portal installations:
    http://server:port/webdav/dav/contentmodel/[page_unique_name|page_object_id]/
    http://server:port/wps/mycontenthandler/dav/contentmodel/page_unique_name/
    or
    http://server:port/wps/mycontenthandler/dav/contentmodel/page_object_id/
  • For virtual portals:
    • If a host name was specified when the virtual portal was created, the WebDAV URL is as follows:
      http://virtual_portal_host_name:port/webdav/dav/contentmodel/[page_unique_name|page_object_id]/
      http://virtual_portal_host_name:port/wps/mycontenthandler/dav/contentmodel/page_unique_name/
      or
      http://virtual_portal_host_name:port/wps/mycontenthandler/dav/contentmodel/page_object_id/
    • If the virtual portal was created with a URL context only and no host name was specified, the WebDAV URL is as follows:
      http://server:port/webdav/URL_context_of_the_virtual_portal/!ut/p/dav/contentmodel/[page_unique_name|page_object_id]/
      http://server:port/wps/mycontenthandler/URL_context_of_the_virtual_portal/!ut/p/dav/contentmodel/page_unique_name/
      or
      http://server:port/wps/mycontenthandler/URL_context_of_the_virtual_portal/!ut/p/dav/contentmodel/page_object_id/
Where:
server
Host name of the portal server.
port
Port number of HCL Portal.
URL_context_of_the_virtual_portal
URL context of the target virtual portal, if the virtual portal URL context is configured to be encoded into the URL.
virtual_portal_host_name

Examples of entry URLs to all portal pages are as follows:
  http://www.my_company.com:10040/webdav/dav/contentmodel/wps.content.root/
  http://www.my_company.com:10039/wps/mycontenthandler/dav/contentmodel/wps.content.root/
For virtual portals examples of entry URLs to all portal pages are as follows:
  • For a virtual portal created with the host name vp.mycompany.com:
    http://vp.mycompany.com:10040/webdav/dav/contentmodel/wps.content.root/
    http://vp.mycompany.com:10039/wps/mycontenthandler/dav/contentmodel/wps.content.root/
  • For a virtual portal created with the URL context vp1 and without a host name:
    http://localhost:10040/webdav/vp1/!ut/p/dav/contentmodel/wps.content.root/
    http://localhost:10039/wps/mycontenthandler/vp1/!ut/p/dav/contentmodel/wps.content.root/
