Can anyone explain why having set the Key: ir_attachment.location to the Value: file:///filestore , that the directory 'filestore' does not appear anywhere?
Reading the many other posts it appears as if the 'filestore' directory should appear automatically once Value has been set and the system restarted. Thereafter, all new attachments should be saved within this 'filestore' folder, albeit under an encrypted filename.
We have tried to find this folder using the OpenERP FTP client, looking within the OpenERP Knowledge module under Configuration > Document Management > Directories , we even installed the All-in-One version on Windows to see if we could find it under the regular Windows File System. None of these show the 'filestore' directory.
What is going on?
Nobody appears to have a clear answer that can be easily followed, as the question has been asked so many times now. We have already read many times every possible reference to this on this forum and have looked elsewhere on the web. This cannot be so hard to explain so that everybody understands once and for all how this function works. Thank you.
If you setup
ir_attachment.location to file:///filestore you should have a new filestore folder that as the name of the database you setup in your
- If your database is demo_test you will have
Be careful ! : OpenERP server should be able to write on this directory: openobject-server/openerp/ . Setup write accÃ¨s and user used to launch OpenERP server service correctly.
filestore folder should be in the same level as service, tools, osv, cli, conf etc .. in the openerp folder of the server (not web or addons)
filestore does not exist, create it and give the write access to openerp. When you launch OpenERP you should have a warning or an error if OpenERP can't create folder.
The 'filestore' directory will not be created until the first document is attached within OpenERP
Although we can't find it documented anywhere, we have figured out that the 'filestore' directory will not be created until the first document is attached within OpenERP. This is a small but important detail that can save a lot of frustration. Once the first file is attached, the 'filestore' folder then appears under Windows in the folder that contains the 'addons' folder. We have not tested it yet but we presume this is the same for Linux installations. There appears to be no need to create the 'filestore' folder yourself. Once created, the folder 'filestore' does not appear anywhere within OpenERP, it only appears on the machine's file system outside of OpenERP. Conversely the Directory Structure set up within OpenERP, automatically or by you, is not reflected outside in the 'filestore' directory, so don't go looking for it. The 'filestore' directory is literally what it sounds like it is, a repository for files with encrypted/randomized file and folder names in a structure determined by OpenERP but not reflecting your own Directory Structure in OpenERP. Consequently the use of Windows File Explorer or similar is not really practical. The files can be opened outside of OpenERP if you know what program to open them with. It is just the file name that has been encrypted/randomized, in case you ever try to save a second attachment of the same original file name but say a different version. Shame this is not all clearly explained anywhere.
