The WebDAV module can be enabled/disabled system wide. The following parameters can be configured
- WebDAV access
Enable or disable the WebDAV access. When enabled, all system users can access their OpenOLAT folder using WebDAV (recommended).
- Show WebDAV links
Decide if the WebDAV URL is displayed in the folder component or not. This is independent of the the WebDAV access. When disabled, WebDAV can still be used but the WebDAV link must be known by users as it is not displayed in the web interface.
- Digest Authentication for HTTP access
To use WebDAV on Windows operating systems without manually importing certificates it is mandatory to operate the WebDAV interface using HTTP and no SSL. In that case files will be transfered without encryption. To still transmit the password encrypted, the Digest Authentication method must be used to support Windows.
- Group courses by semester terms
Enable this flag to list the available semester terms first and within a semester term only the courses from this term. This greatly improves usability with many courses.
The Digest Authentication method does not use strong encryption and can be cracked with enough computing effort. To meet very high security demands users should always use HTTPS with SSL encryption. When using Windows this will make it necessary to manually import certificates or to use a dedicated WebDAV client.
