Last updated on SEPTEMBER 04, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Outside In Technology - Version 8.5.3 to 8.5.4 [Release OIT]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


NOTE: If you downloaded the Excel file referenced in this article prior to March 7, 2016, please obtain the new copy linked below in this note.  There were several minor changes to the "Format String" values (in column C) for the human readable strings associated with the FI values.  (No significant factual changes have been made to the FI values or FI_* information otherwise.  Only the string names changed, most often due to superficial changes like updating a version "3" to "3.o" or changing an "and" to "&".)

The purpose of this bulletin is to supply updated information about the File Identification (FI) values returned by Outside In 8.5.3 and 8.5.4.

This information in this article is supplementary to the defined FI values in \sdk\common\sccfi.h and resources defined in \sdk\resource\lodlgstr.h header files. In case of discrepancies, the header files will be considered the source of truth for File Identification information.


The scope of information includes new FI values for 8.5.3 and 8.5.4, as well as information about the three levels of support for the various file formats - render / extract, FI only or metadata only.

The scope of this article does not include general information about the 8.5.3 and 8.5.4 release. 

Please refer to Note 2108491.1: "Outside In (OIT) 8.5.3 Release Description" for general information about the 8.5.3 release.
