The WebDAV Connection Manager contains the following two pages to connect to your WebDAV instance.

  • General
  • Advanced Settings

General page

The General page on the WebDAV Connection Manager allows you to specify general settings for the connection.

WebDAV Connection Manager - General

Host

WebDAV Host

The WebDAV Host represents the Server containing your WebDAV instance.

Port

The Port contains a default value 80.

Use HTTP

This option allows you to connect over HTTP.
Note: This is not a recommended approach

Authentication

WebDAV Host

The Authentication Method contains three options:

  • Anonymous - Connect to the instance without authentication
  • Basic - Provide the Username and password
  • Credentials - Requires a Domain along with username and password
Domain (Only for Authentication mode Credentials)
Requires you to provide the domain
WebDAV User (Available for Authentication type Basic and Credentials)
Specify the user name for the connection.
Password (Available for Authentication type Basic and Credentials)
Specify the password for the connection.

Miscellaneous

Timeout
The Timeout (secs) option allows you to specify a timeout value in seconds for the connection. The default value is 120 seconds.
Retry on Intermittent Errors
This is an option designed to help recover from possible intermittent outages or disruption of service, so the integration does not have to be stopped because of such temporary issues. Enabling this option will allow service calls to be retried upon certain types of failure. A service call may be retried up to 3 times before an exception is fired. Retries occur after 0 seconds, 15 seconds, and 60 seconds. Warning: although we have carefully designed this feature so that such retries should only happen when it is deemed to be safe to do so, in some extreme occasions, such retried service calls could result in the creation of duplicate data.
Ignore Certificate Errors
This option can be used to ignore those SSL certificate errors when connecting to the server.
Warning: Enabling "Ignore Certificate Errors" option is generally NOT recommended, particularly for production instance. Unless there is a strong reason to believe the connection is secure - such as the network communication is only happening in an internal infrastructure, this option should be unchecked for best security.
Test Connection
After all the connection information has been provided, you may click the Test Connection button to test if the connection settings entered are valid.

Advanced Settings

The Advanced Settings page on the WebDAV Connection Manager allows you to specify some advanced and optional settings for the connection.

WebDAV Connection Manager - Advanced Settings

Proxy Server Setting

Proxy Mode

Proxy Mode option allows you to specify how you want to configure the proxy server setting. There are three options available:

  • No Proxy
  • Auto-detect (Using system configured proxy)
  • Manual
Proxy Server
Using Proxy Server option allows you to specify the name of the proxy server for the connection.
Port
The Port option allows you to specify the port number of the proxy server for the connection.
Username (Proxy Server Authentication)
Username option (under Proxy Server Authentication) allows you to specify the proxy user account.
Password (Proxy Server Authentication)
Password option (under Proxy Server Authentication) allows you to specify the proxy user's password.

Note: The Proxy Password is not included in the connection manager's ConnectionString property by default. This is done by design for security reasons. However you can include it in your ConnectionString if you want to parameterize your connection manager. The format would be ProxyPassword=myProxyPassword; (make sure you have a semicolon as the last character). It can be anywhere in the ConnectionString.
