The following graphic describes the architecture for uploading files in SmartPlant Foundation.

1

The SmartPlant Foundation client sends a request to the SmartPlant Foundation server to initiate a file transfer.

2

The server returns the URL of the file service to which the client should upload the file.

3

The client posts the file to the Upload.aspx page on the specified file server.

4

The HTTP module on the file server intercepts the HTTP post and writes the posted file to a temporary disk area.

5

The file server then sends a success message back to the client, and the client prompts the SmartPlant Foundation server to process the uploaded file.

6

The SmartPlant Foundation server then sends a message to the file server to move the file to a specified vault and to give the file a specified name.

7

The file server returns a success message to the SmartPlant Foundation server, which then updates the database and responds to the client.

When a user checks in or attaches a file, a subdirectory is created under the temporary file location for the Session ID of the client transferring the file.
