|Admin tools / database overview|
The War and Identity administration tools have been designed to allow the categorizing and searching of pre-existing documents within the War and Identity education catalogue.
All documents that are part of this catalogue are defined in a separate database file that contains records for each document that specifies what areas each document relates to in the web site structure.
Each database record - what we call here a 'document description entry' - also has search content that the system uses to locate sought after words and search terms.
The administration tools allow the addition, deletion and modification of the database records, but do not modify or create document files on the server. All document files that are to be part of the catalogue need to be uploaded to the War and Identity web server before a related document description entry can be added to the database.
All files must be uploaded to a path within the ADCCweb folder on the root of the web server.
Once a document file is present on the web server these tools can be used to create and manage a related database record which the system uses to categorize that document file, returning it to the user from a relevant word or category search. The user can then click on the returned database record and be linked to the actual document file from within the War and Identity web site frame.
Note that each page within the toolset has additional help related to that page. You can access this by clicking in the 'Help' link in the top right.
