You have folders in your Project files that you would like to download, but when you check the box, the download button remains greyed out.
Downloading entire folders is controlled via a central configuration setting:
If you don't have the ability to download folders, it's likely this setting is set to "false" or is not configured.
Enabling this setting will change the behavior of downloads from the Files page: Individual files will still download as usual, but selecting folders, multiple files, or a combination of both will return your download in a zipped folder.
The central configuration setting
com.cerebro.domino.frontend.allowFolderDownloads can be added/set to "true" in the Domino Admin UI. Note - this is only accessible by Domino Admins. Reach out to your Domino Administrators to inquire about enabling this setting!
To add this setting if it does not exist:
- On the Admin home page, navigate to Advanced > Central Config.
- Click "Add Record"
- Add a record for
com.cerebro.domino.frontend.allowFolderDownloadsand set it to "true":
- Click "Create" to save this new setting.
- Changes will not take effect until services are restarted. Scroll to the top of the Central Configuration page; under the Configuration Management page title, the system shows the following message: “Changes here do not take effect until services are restarted. Click here to restart services.” Click the link to restart services.
Please note, adding this central config setting introduces a bug into downloading files from older commits. If you select an older commit from the dropdown and attempt to download files/folders from that specific commit, the latest version of your files will be returned. This does not effect downloads of individual files, only multiple file downloads/folder downloads.
This bug will be addressed in Domino 5.4.0, please keep an eye on our Release Notes for further updates!
