Clover server no access to "Local Files"

Postby jblythe99 » Wed Feb 17, 2016 10:55 pm

We have a recent installation of Clover Server and when migrating some jobs to test we noticed we do not have access to the "Local Files" tab in UniversalDataReader. Can you help with this? We have the installation on CentOS which was not a standard installation so we want to make sure something obvious isnt missing. We are trying to access something like /var/data/file.csv. Thanks for any help.

Hi jblythe99,

Local browsing works only respectively to your local machine - to where the Designer is located. However, you can work with the local resources on the remote locations if you manually type the URL into the dialog.

Hope it helps.
