By default, Vibe users can access files on the Vibe server directly using a web browser.
If they have sufficient rights, they can then open files for editing using whichever of the following two options you configure Vibe to support.
MS URI-based editing is available by default to all users who have:
Web browser access to vibe.
Microsoft Office 2010 or later installed on their workstation.
Users can edit files directly in Vibe (through underlying WebDAV support) using thedrop-down option wherever it appears.
IMPORTANT:LibreOffice is not supported by MS URI.
Vibe URI-based editing (also knowns as Vibe Edit-in-Place) is not the default browser-based option. It requires action on your part as well as by your users, but for many it is the best option because:
It supports both Mac and Windows.
It supports Microsoft Office and LibreOffice.
To provide Vibe-URI-based file editing, complete the steps in the following sections:
To configure the Vibe server, you must do the following:
Follow the instructions in Distributing File-Access Applications to Users.
Change to the following directory:
c:\Program Files\Novell\Teaming\apache-tomcat\ webapps\ssf\WEB-INF\classes/config
Open the ssf-ext.properties file.
Insert a new entry as follows: edit.in.place.mode=vibeuri.
Save and close the ssf-ext.properties file.
Stop and restart Vibe.
NOTE:If you want to revert to msuri functionality, simply change the edit.in.place.mode option to msuri and restart Vibe.
To use Vibe URI (Edit-in-Place), users must download and install the Vibe Edit-in-Place application for their workstation type.
