Sorry, I should have been more specific.
Can a user click on a link from the email and get directly to the file that is sitting in the IFS? If so, how should the link be formatted? Should it begin with http://? I know very little about the IFS and am not sure how to proceed.
<i>Can a user click on a link from the email and get directly to the file that is sitting in the IFS?</i>
In general, if you can type the location into a Windows Explorer address bar and reach the file, then a user can click on the same “link” to access the same file.
<i>Should it begin with http://?</i>
It should begin with http:// if you have a HTTP server that will serve the file after processing the link that you supply.
More likely, it will begin with two back-slashes (\\) and your system’s NetServer name or the IP address. After the name will be the share name that you expose to the Windows Neighborhood, followed by the path to the file. Use iSeries Navigator to drill down into NetServer in order to create a shared directory.
Of course, the recipient will have to be authorized (assuming authentication exists) to the shared directory and to the .CSV streamfile.
