Centercode File Security Levels

High Security:

In order to download a High Security file the user must be logged into the system. The file link is valid only for the current session and for the user to whom the link was originally presented. The link cannot be bookmarked, and the link can not be shared with other users. Download managers that are integrated into your web browser and that have access to your browser's cookies can be used. Download managers that are not tightly integrated with your browser will not work in this case.

Medium Security:

To download a Medium Security file the User must be logged in to the system. The user can bookmark the file link, but the link is only valid for the user to whom the link was originally presented. Download managers that are integrated with your browser, or that support Basic Authentication over HTTP will work.

Low Security:

To download a Low Security file the User must be logged in to the system. Low Security links can be shared with any Community user. The links presented by the system for these types of files can be shared between users. Files of this type are often used embedded within other areas in the site. Download managers that are integrated with your browser, or that support Basic Authentication over HTTP will work.

No Security:

No Security files are unrestricted and can be used anywhere. Most download managers will work with them as well.

Download Management Tools:

Use of a Download manager can greatly improve a user's download success rate, as well as provide additional functionality such as pause and resume capabilities, and may improve performance through the use of multi-part download capabilities. Depending on how your Centercode Implementation is configured, your Download Manager may need to support SSL (https). Your Download Manager may also need to support Basic Authentication over HTTP or HTTPS.
