Note: There are various ways of specifying the target destination:

  • If the document config for the type specified has a folder context defined and this context is not dynamic and absolute, then the path is computed using the path specified in the default GroupURI for the current group and using the scheme, host and port from the URI or GroupURI specified if any, otherwise from the parameters scheme, host and port .
  • If there is no context (or it is relative or dynamic) for the document type specified, the uri and guri parameters are used: the URI or GroupURI defined by the ID will be the parent (if the URI is a document, its parent will be used).
