Attaching an electronic document via a URL?

Is it possible to attach an electronic document to a HP TRIM/RM Record via a URL using the .NET SDK? Or, is it possible to attach an electronic document  to a HP TRIM/RM Record via FTP?

Not entirely sure I am following what you are asking. Can you elaborate more?

You can't do this with the current way that TRIM stores documents.

 

What may work is if you use a .lnk file as the 'document' that you register into TRIM, which is basically just a URL file linking back to your web path/ftp path.

 

You could also just an additional field to save a URL, but this wont be as seamless for the user.

URLs have a maximum limit of 2,000 characters.  So attaching via a URL is technically possible, but highly unlikely.  You'd need to reserve enough space to know the content type, disposition, etc.  

 

Synchronizing via FTP is possible.  Several products do this (like EzeScan).   Would be easy to code a .Net app to handle this.

 

If you want to receive things via the web your best bet is a webservice.

 

*EDIT*: I forgot to mention you can also receive documents via a form post command.  This is how a .Net site would receive it via upload anyways.

I had a customer ask if this was possible. I am not certain what they wanted to do. The follow-on responses have given me enough information to use. Thanks.

I think this is enough to work with. I am not certain why I was asked this question. I suppose the link could be managed like a paper document and the link (in an additional field).
