One of our customers is asking if the Jabber file transfer default save location can be changed to other location.
By default, it is saved to "C:\Users\UserName\Documents\MyJabberFiles\". And there is only "accept" and "decline". There is no "save as" option.
He prefers a location like "C:\SavedFiles" for everyone in the company. The customer has changed it for Lync so he also want to change it for Jabber.
I have searched doc and forum but couldn't find any answer. Maybe a local register value can solve this? Any idea?
Thanks in advance.
I am looking to store Jabber transfered files to a network store rather than the local PC for security reasons. Did you find a way to change the file transfer location?
With Jabber 11.5 you can set the Default save Location for files with the following commands in "jabber-config.xml":
Big thanks to Ravish from Cisco TAC ;-)!
Thanks for the post.
To be more precise the above feature can be achieved as below:
From Jabber 11.5 release notes we see as below,
Choose Destination Folder for Chats and File Transfers—Users can now specify their own folder destination for saved chats and file transfers. You can disable this feature with the AllowUserSelectChatsFileDirectory parameter. For more information about this parameter, see the Parameters Reference Guide for Cisco Jabber 11.5.
Please refer to the link below to perform the task:
Refer to the section, « AllowUserSelectChatsFileDirectory” in the above link.
Before this you need to EnableAutosave and AutosaveChatsLocation as per the above link.
Maybe you can help me once again?
I want to reference in the Jabber XML file the user specific location "Downloads".
So in Windows you can use "%USERPROFILE%\Downloads" to go directly into the standard download folder of an user. Is that also possible with Jabber for the file location?
When I enter the command:
the Jabber crash and of course don't save the file. Did I have to use another syntax or is it not possible to reference a user specific Folder?
Thanks and best regards
PS: a normal path with example "C:\Downloads" is working wonderful ;-).
