This article specifies the support policy for WebDAV integrations. WebDAV stands for Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning. It is a set of methods based on HTTP that allows users to create, move or delete files stored on web servers. WebDAV is supported by all major Operating Systems and desktop environments. Liferay Digital Experience Platform, Liferay Portal EE, and Liferay Commerce ("the product") have been designed with WebDAV integration. This article addresses support coverage unique to WebDAV integration, and not already covered in the generic Document Library Integrations policy.
For more information please see the Document Library Integrations policy.
Liferay seeks to ensure that when utilizing the product, users would be able to add, remove, access and update files in the Document Library through a WebDAV connection. Liferay will provide guidance on configuration and resolve any issues with its products when connecting to the Document Library via WebDAV.
Any issues with the operating system or third-party WebDAV client applications are the responsibility of the vendor of those applications to resolve.
Compatible Operating Systems
The WebDAV connector in the product is not tested as compatible with any third-party WebDAV client applications. Please see the Integrated Technologies Compatibility Matrix for Liferay DXP, Liferay Portal, and Liferay Commerce.
Basic or Digest Authentication
The WebDAV connector in the product requires the use of Basic or Digest authentication to access the Document Library. The product has implemented Digest authentication by default.
Digest authentication requires a user to have previously authenticated with their current password through the product’s default authentication methods in order to generate a cryptographic hash. Utilizing an alternate authentication method such as an SSO will not result in the generation of a cryptographic hash.
