Document ID (DocID)
The PageSeeder server allows any document – XML or binary – to be assigned a server-wide, unique, permanent identifier. This value is commonly referred to as the DocID and it has the same use case for both developers and end-users. That is, the DocID is an alternative method to folder path and filename for locating a document, like a primary key.
DocID may contain the following characters:
The following is an example of PSML markup for the DocID :
<document level="portable"> <documentinfo> <uri docid="MDT-15" title="My Document"/> </documentinfo> ... </document>
Following are rules to be aware of when processing using DocIDs:
- Because DocIDs are unique to the domain of the URI, they may be in use but not visible to a particular project or group. To protect the integrity of a particular range of IDs, use a prefix to (i.e. XYZ-????).
