Resources

The TeamDesk Resources section provides you with the functionality of an online repository. This feature allows you to upload and store various files on the TeamDesk server, ranging from database-related documents to client-side scripts or landing web pages. Database resources can be made available to database users only or to any web user.

Adding New Resources

To upload resources to the TeamDesk server:

  1. Click the Setup link in the top right corner of the window.

  2. Select the Database tab.

  3. Choose Database > Resources from the setup menu.

  4. At the top of the resources list, click the New button and specify the resource properties:

    • Click the Choose file button to specify the path to the necessary file on your computer.
    • When choosing files, you can select more than one. If you select a single ZIP archive, there’s an option to unpack it and use its contents as individual files, retaining the archive’s folder structure if present. To do that, check the Unpack ZIP archive box. Alternatively, by not checking the box, you can upload the archive intact.
    • Use the Upload to box to specify the folder where the file(s) should go—either choose from existing folders or type the name of a new one.
    • In the Resource exists? setting, you can select one of the following options:
      • Leave the original resource untouched.
      • Overwrite with a new file.
    • Add notes to the Notes field if needed.
    • If the file should be accessible to any web user, select the Allow public access to this resource checkbox.

  5. When you’re finished, click Save. You can access the newly created resource by clicking the resource name link (the path to the resource will be available in the browser address bar).

The disk space allocated for resources on the TeamDesk server is unlimited. However, the size of a single file should not exceed 100 MB.
