Nuxeo supports the WebDAV (Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning_)_ protocol and thus enables you to create and edit Office documents stored in Nuxeo directly from the Windows or Mac OS X desktop, without having to go through your Nuxeo application.

The documentation about installation and usage of WebDAV can be found in the Nuxeo Platform User Guide.

Adding a new WebDAV Client

The plugin comes with a default configuration which supports only a few clients among Windows 7's one, litmus, davfs, cadaver. If your usual client is not listed, you can override this configuration by adding a new file webdav-authentication-config.xml under $NUXEO/nxserver/config/ and update the list associated to the header.

Below is an example where BitKinex is added:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<component name="org.nuxeo.ecm.platform.wi.auth.config.custom">


  <extension target="org.nuxeo.ecm.platform.ui.web.auth.service.PluggableAuthenticationService" point="specificChains">

    <specificAuthenticationChain name="WebDAV">
        <header name="User-Agent">(Microsoft-WebDAV-MiniRedir|DavClnt|litmus|gvfs|davfs|WebDAV|cadaver|BitKinex).*</header>
