Configure adhoc file transfers

Use the AdHoc Settings page to configure parameters and defaults for adhoc file transfers using ST Web Client or the Axway Email Plug-ins.

  1. Select Setup > AdHoc Settings.
  2. The AdHoc Settings page is displayed.
  3. Provide the information as described in the following table:
  4. Name Description
    Global AdHoc Settings
    Default enrollment account template SecureTransport uses this account template when enrolling an adhoc file transfer recipient. For information about account templates, see Account templates.
    Default notification mail template SecureTransport uses this mail template to create all notification emails to adhoc file transfer recipients and senders. For more information about mail templates, see Mail templates.
    Default Package Delivery Method

    SecureTransport uses this delivery method when the Delivery Method field in Account Setting for a user account, in an account template, or in a business unit is set to Default.

    • Disabled – Adhoc file transfers are disabled.
    • Anonymous – The adhoc file transfer recipient receives a link to retrieve the files and is not enrolled as a user.
    • Account Without Enrollment – Do not enroll adhoc file recipients. Only existing users can receive files.
    • Account With Enrollment – The adhoc file must enroll as a SecureTransport user before retrieving the files.
    • Custom – Select the allowed enrollment types in the Default enrollment type field. Depending on the value of the Default implicit enrollment type field, the sender chooses one of the selected enrollment types when composing the mail in ST Web Client.
    Default enrollment type
    • Anonymous – The adhoc file transfer recipient receives a link to retrieve the files and is not enrolled as a user.
    • Challenge – The adhoc file recipient receives a link and must answer a challenge question correctly to retrieve the files. The recipient is not enrolled as a user.
    • Existing Account – Do not enroll adhoc file recipients. Only existing users can receive files.
    • Enroll Unlicensed – The adhoc file recipient must enroll as a SecureTransport unlicensed user before retrieving the files. An unlicensed user can only reply once to the email and retrieve the files. Other user attributes are defined by the enrollment template.
    • Enroll Licensed – The adhoc file recipient must enroll as a SecureTransport user with all the attributes specified in the default enrollment template before retrieving the files.
    Default implicit enrollment type The values displayed depend on the settings of Default Package Delivery Method and Default enrollment type. ST Web Client sets this value as the initial value selected in the User Access window when a user with the Delivery Method field set to Default composes an email. The Axway Email Plug-ins use this value as the delivery method when a user with the Delivery Method field set to Default composes an email. Challenge is not an option because the Axway Email Plug-in do not include the challenge question and answer function.
    Default Expiration Interval

    ST Web Client displays this value as the initial value of the Expiration drop-down list in the Compose Mail tab. The Axway Email Plug-ins use this value as the expiration interval for all messages. The choices are: 1 Day, 7 Days, 30 Days, 60 Days, and Never.

    Maximum Expiration Interval ST Web Client displays this value as the largest value of the Expiration drop-down list in the Compose Mail tab. The choices are: 1 Day, 7 Days, 30 Days, 60 Days, and Never.
    Package Manager Base Folder SecureTransport uses this working folder to process adhoc file transfers. In a cluster, all servers use the same folder, so specify the same location in shared storage. To enable adhoc file transfers, you must specify this folder. For a list of folder that are not allowed, see Protected folders and accounts.
    Package Manager System Username
    (Windows only)
    If the package manager base folder is in shared storage, enter the user name of the Windows system user that SecureTransport uses to access the package manager base folder. The user must be in the SecureTransport password vault. If you change this field, you must not remove the previous user from the password vault.
    Mailbox Folder Name SecureTransport creates a folder with this name in the user's home folder to store the user's mail folders. Because the mail folders are for use for adhoc file transfers only, these folders are not visible to clients. Do not modify any files in these folders or in the mail folders.

    Anonymous Account Name

    Anonymous Account UID

    Anonymous Account GID

    Anonymous Account Home Folder

    SecureTransport uses this account name, UID, GID, and home folder when an adhoc file transfer recipient logs in anonymously to retrieve a file. You must create this account.
    Email Notification Settings
    Disable account enrollment notification SecureTransport does not send out account enrollment notifications when this option is selected. If you select this option, you must manage any account enrollment notifications externally using REST API from your email system. By default, this option is not selected.
    Disable package delivery notification

    SecureTransport does not send out package delivery notifications when this option is selected. If you select this option, you must manage any package delivery notifications externally using REST API from your email system. By default, this option is not selected.

    Note Package delivery notifications can also be disabled by the end user. If you do not select this option, the end user can disable package delivery notifications. If you select this option, the end user cannot override your selection and package delivery notifications will be disabled even if they are enabled by the end user.
    Desktop Email Plugin Settings
    Mailbox Plugin Enabled SecureTransport allows adhoc file transfers using the Axway Email Plug-ins when selected.
    Minimum file size SecureTransport does not transfer files smaller than the value specified using the Axway Email Plug-ins.
    Maximum file size SecureTransport does not transfer files larger than the value specified using the Axway Email Plug-ins.
  5. Click Save.

Two server configuration parameters control handling of human-to-system (H2S) transfers:

  • By default, value of the PackageManager.DualDeliveryDisabled server configuration parameter is true and SecureTransport stores the files attached to an H2S email in the target folder and processes them but does not send the email to the system user. If value of PackageManager.DualDeliveryDisabled is true, SecureTransport also sends the email to the system account. If the email recipients also include H2H addresses, SecureTransport sends the email to the those recipients regardless of the value of PackageManager.DualDeliveryDisabled.
  • By default, value of the PackageManager.BodyRoutingDisabled server configuration parameter is true and SecureTransport ignores the body of an H2S email. If value of PackageManager.BodyRoutingDisabled is false, SecureTransport puts the body of the email in a text file with a name of the form uniqueID_body_wap.txt and stores it with the files attached to an H2S email in the target folder.
