There are many cases where a file should be embedded somewhere in the GUI:
- download link to a manual PDF on the login screen
- embed a christmas icon on the login screen
Today those files must be added to the theme, the theme must be deployed and when the file is not necessary anymore the theme must be changed again.
The goal is to add a static file space for such purpose:
- Add a directory olatdata/customizing/static
- Implement a webdav provider for users with administrator role to this directory
- Add this directory as media callback in the infomessage HTML editor
- Add the folder component for this directory to the system administration panel and add a link above the folder component which shows the URL to the folder
- URL should be something like this: .../raw/static/...
