Hi Team,

The requirement is we suppose not to download the PDF from dispatchers, it should open in the browser.

What are the configurations for this in dispatchers? Please advise.

Thanks

Uma

Dear Uma,

 

If you could try to add following command to your .conf file, it would resolve issue:

<LocationMatch "\.(?i:pdf)$">
  ForceType application/pdf
  Header set Content-Disposition inline

</LocationMatch>

 

Regards,

Peter

Finally we are able to open in tab for specific folder PDF's of specific site dispatcher file <Directory "/usr/local/pmc/var/www/html/content/dam/site/specificfolde/"> <FilesMatch "\.(pdf)$"> Header set Content-Disposition "inline" Header set Cache-Control "max-age=86400, public" Require all granted </FilesMatch> </Directory>

HI Peter,

As per the suggestion from you,  below regular expression will open all pdf files in new tab irrespective of dam path, this fine.

<LocationMatch "\.(?i:pdf)$">
ForceType application/pdf
Header set Content-Disposition inline

</LocationMatch>

 

But, if want to down load specific dam path pdf file then what is the regular expression.

example: open all pdf's in new tab for this site specific dam path if we have more sites content in dam.

ex: /dam/abcproject/allbooks/(1-100 pdf files)

<LocationMatch "\.(?i:pdf)$">

 

Kindly do the needful, Thank you.

You might as well add these as well while you are there. I put all mine in a new /conf.d/rewrites/mod_locationmatch.rules file --

<LocationMatch "\.(?i:xml)$">
ForceType text/xml
Header set Content-Disposition inline
</LocationMatch>
<LocationMatch "\.(?:gif|jpe?g|png)$">
ForceType image
Header set Content-Disposition inline
</LocationMatch>
