About File Groups

I am trying to find out how the default 'file groups' are defined in DI.

"Inactive by File Group" report contains groups such as "Graphics Files", "Media Files" , "Video". 
It seems to me that there are overlaps between these types?

I have tried to search the DI Admin Guide (6.0). All I could find was this: 

By default, Data Insight sorts files into 18 file groups based on the extension of the files.

Where do I find which extentions belongs to a particular file group?

Re: About File Groups

You can create, modify and read file groups in the GUI or via the commandline.

in the GUI on the settings tab the page you desired is located under the global settings:

The commandline is run from the binary directory. By default -

C:\Program Files\DataInsight\bin>fg.exe
An fg command must be specified.

-------------------------
FG usage information:
-------------------------

Options for FG commands
-------------------------
-d: Show file group details when listing
-h: Print this usage message
-i: The fully-qualified username of the user running this command.  Always required.
-t: The file extension to add or delete from the file group (e.g. doc)

One of these FG commands must be specified to manipulate File Group objects:
----------------------------------
-A: Add an extension to an existing file group.
-C: Create a new file group.
-D: Delete an existing file group
-L: List existing file groups
-N: Name of the file group to be created or deleted
-R: Remove an extension from an existing file group.

-A, -C, -D, -L or -R options are required to run the fg utility for file groups,
 e.g.

        fg -A -N container1 -t doc
        fg -C -N container1
        fg -D -N container1
        fg -L -d
        fg -L -N container1 -d
        fg -R -N container1 -t doc


Remember to add the -i option for each of the above commands.

You must also add a user to list all groups run
C:\Program Files\DataInsight\bin>fg -L -d -i Administrator@samgwin
<Your list will appear here and you may wish to redirect to a file (>>filename.txt) to see all>

 

An incorrect user or user without appropriate permissions will result in error -

C:\Program Files\DataInsight\bin>fg -L -d -i Administrator
Only users with prodadmin privilege can run fg utility. Error code is 202

Re: About File Groups

Thanks Rod

I will ask the customer for the output or else prepare a DI installation in our virtual environment.

(LOL - seems I need more hands-on!)

 

Re: About File Groups

PM me near the end of the month and we can do a quick one on one for your questions to familiarize you with the interface and training.

Re: About File Groups

How do you make manage users in "prodadmin" - is this simply making them a Product Administrator in the GUI?  We have tried this, and it resulted in the same error.  Is there a timed job that updates the user roles?
