    Recently my companys intranet website has been updated from DNN 9.8 to version 9.12. And as a result the Telerik Digital Asset Manager has been replaced by Resource Manager.

    The users of the intranet site have been used to opening files from the Digital Assets Manager folder just by doubleclicking af file item from the list. 
    It appears that this isn't possible when you are using Resource Manager. Am I missing something or is this something to be expected?

    I haven't been able to find any information by googling.

    Thank you for any hints or ideas

      Henrik, that's one of the features that's not longer available in the new resource manager. If I recall correctly we needed to replace the old file manager due to security risks (Telerik) and the current resource manager doesn't have any known security problems at this point. By the way, a BIG thanks to everydody behind this huge and important change!!! 

      If you want to get to know more about the new resource manager you can go to the release link at GitHub

      https://github.com/dnnsof...nn.Platform/releases

      and seach for the keyword "resource manager" in order to go through all the details about the new resource manager starting at version v9.11.0

      Now, you can look for a file manager option for end users in the following links:

      Hope this helps.

        If you want this feature to be added to the new file management module, you can request it.  This is an update that sounds like it will be easy and attractive for someone to tackle.  The link below will help you do that.

          Thank you both for the feedback with valuable information.
          I have just made an enhancement request for the feature in question:
          https://github.com/dnnsof...Platform/issues/5885





          New Around Here





            The company that I am representing consist of about 1200 employees all members of different network groups and userroles and in the time of the Digital Telerik Manager, DAM, they used to share documents by means of DAM. 
            The DNN Resource Manager is supposed to replace DAM because of some security risks regarding the former.

            But some crucial features are still missing to Resource Manager which I have mentioned in an enhance request at github about a week ago, Jan 15. 24, describing these issues:
            The Digital Assets Manager from Telerik contained this functionality that seems to be missing within the DNN Resource Manager:
            Right clicking a folder gave access to the 'Copy url' method.'
            When in the Resource Manager interface you try to load the content of a folder, for example the root folder, containing a rich list of files you could easyly get an impression that nothing is happening because of a lack of user feedback like a page spinner or a loader icon.
            As the above mentioned enhancement request has passed unoticed or without any comments I am using this forum to check whether I did overlook any topics or solutions to this issue.

              Thank you for logging these issues.  That's the best first step to get something updated in DNN. 

              By the way, there are a number of us in the DNN ecosystem who also are willing to do the work by way of sponsorship.  If this is a feature you need right away, it's the best way to ensure that such a feature/update gets worked on and released as soon as you wish.  

              Pretty much anyone listed in the DNN Agencies area potentially will have the skills you're looking for, should you decide to go that path.  I recommend finding a few that look good to you, interview them, then choosoing the one you like the most.

                The Copy URL method it's available but you must be on SSL in order to see it, check out this other conversation about the same:

                  Hi Marco

                  I am on a SSL/https connection but I don't see the the Copy URL link neither in the tab bar nor in the mouse right click dropdown menu. Just to be sure we are talking about the same issue: I would expect to be able to copy the URL of a folder  - it works fine for file assets but not for folders in the current DNN 9.12 Resource Manager.

                    It was implemented only for files. It is bad practice to have directory browsing enabled for security reasons and a link to a folder would not be useful in that context.

                      Yeah, that's a great idea.  However, there are several ways to expose the files in a folder in another way, if that's needed.
