Configuration

Add/Configure Repositories

Each Repository can be configured within the filebrowser node. The first drowdown "Repositories" allows to create or modify existing repository entries.

screenshot

Once a repository has been created (and the filebrowser widget has been relaunched ) the repository can be added to the list of accessible repositories. Each accessible repository has an unique (ascending) number. This is required to identify the approperiate repository later on. The order of accessible repositores can be changed. Please take note that this will also require an to adjust the URL to the repository (Admin Tool)

SMB/CIFS Shares

screenshot

  • Type: Select Type to "SMB"
  • Name: Select a Display name which will appear in the list of avaliable repositories
  • Share: Set the SMB\CIFS\UNC Share
  • Port: Default Port is 445
  • Working Directory: Set entry path/working directory if needed
  • User/Password/Domain: Enter the user credentials. ATTENTION: Please ensure, that the account has R/RW access to the Share on OS-Level (Windows Credentails Manager):

screenshot

Indexing

"Everything" is search engine (tool) that locates files and folders by filename instantly for Windows. "Everything" provides a built-in HTTP web server that allows searching and accessing files from a web browser. Search parameters can be sent via http queries and the respone is a JSON. This mechanism is being used by the filebrowser node. It can query the content of a specific repsoitory instead of re-scanning all subfolders again, which safes time (especially with huge repositories)

In order to configure the search engine for SMB/CIFS repositories (FTP/SFTP/FTPS not supported) do the following:

screenshot

  • Add the SMB/CIFS Repository under Tools>>>Options>Folders >> Add screenshot

  • New Shares can be added by simply typing the full share name (e.g. \\SHARE1). Please ensure that the Share-name matches with the configured repository name in the filebrowser node

  • Set an approperiate port number
  • Start "Everything" from the TaskManager, using the spec. user account (where credentials are set in the windows credential manager):

screenshot

  • To test try to connect to the HTTP Endpoint:

screenshot

FTP Shares

To create a new FTP repository set the Repsoitory Type to "FTP":

screenshot

  • Name: Select a Display name which will appear in the list of avaliable repositories
  • FTP Protocol: Set a protocol type (ftp/ftps/sftp)
  • Share: Set FTP Host name or IP-Adress Share
  • Port: Default Port is 21 for FTP, 22 for SFTP and 990 for FTPS
  • Working Directory: Set entry path/working directory if needed
  • Additional FTP Commands: Additional commands to pass to lftp, splitted by ';'

Caching

In order to improve performance and to limit your API key usage, the cache node allows you to configure the duration during which a request and its answer remain in the cache. The default is 60 seconds. screenshot_11

Security

If your flow is available on the public internet, don't forget to secure your Node-Red instance !

Accessing the Tool

According to the configuration above the filebrowser/repository the repository can be accessed via the following URL:

http://[[NODE-RED-URL]]/repository/search/[[repositoryIndex]]?query=
e.g. http://127.0.0.1:1880/repository/search/2?query=

This will output the files (located on the repository) in JSON Format.

In order to display files and folder in a search widget view (see screenshot at top) a Generic Widget can be applied. The generic widget takes the JSON from the filebrowser response as source and allows navigating through folders and query files (search).

See (https://github.com/SCISYS-MS/GenericWidget) for more details.

E.g. the URL would be then:

https://127.0.0.1:1880/genericWidget?searchURL=./repository/search/2&filterFormURL=./repositories/filters&sortFormURL=./repositories/sort&refreshInterval=60
