How To Create a Web URL Mapping to the Native File That Bypasses the Open/Save Prompt (Doc ID 1153103.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Content - Version: 7.5.1 to 10.1.3.5.0 - Release: Stellent to 10gR3
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

A Web URL mapping is created to download and display the native file to the user.  The mapping is of the form:

dc/      <!--$cgipath-->?IdcService=GET_FILE&dDocName=<!--$suffix-->&RevisionSelectionMethod=LatestReleased&Rendition=Primary

So a user can access the native file of a document with a URL like:

http://<server>/dc/<content_id>

HTML files are checked into the Content Server.  It is expected that they can be displayed with the above URL.  However, with that Web URL mapping and the above URL, the user is presented with a prompt to Save or Open the file.

Is there a way to bypass that prompt so the file is automatically opened?
