WorkDocs Error - "Missing Attributes. This page requires several GET attributes and/or cookies to be set"
Hello, We have recently integrated WorkDocs and WorkDocs Drive. Our users have generally been fine connecting to our WorkDocs domain, but we have a single case where, when a user is prompted to enter the domain for our WorkDocs server, gets a message saying "Missing Attributes. This page requires several GET attributes and/or cookies to be set". Currently, the user has tried clearing cookies, cache, and uninstalling/reinstalling all WorkDocs related applications on their machine, but receives the same error. I would like to understand what creates this error, and if it is a problem with the user's machine, or even compatibility with the WorkDocs service. Thank you in advance!
Is there a way to improve AWS Workdocs download speeds ?
We use AWS WorkDocs to distribute large files to our users , these files tend to be above 5GB and we share the files through the public link option that AWS offers, a number of users have complained of extremely slow download speeds how can this be improved ? Can anything be done from Amazons end ?
Permanent access to WorkDocs for external parties
Hi, I want to create a permanent link with acess to a WorkDocs folder to anyone (inc. external parties : selling partners/vendors) who has the link. They don't need any write permissions, just to download an Excel file we will share with them. Is WorkDocs the best tool to do that? Reason we are not using other tools e.g. media central is because the file is undergoing updates, and we want the latest version to be always be accessed via one single link. Alternative would be to create a link with access to a specific file (instead of a folder) as long as we can keep updating that file Thanks
WorkDocs invitation not received by external user
I am a WorkDocs administrator and invited a user outside my organization to a WorkDocs instance. The user has not received the invitation, and I've resent the invitation multiple times, as well as deleted and added back the user. Other users at the same person's organization/domain have received WorkDocs invitations, so it's unclear what's preventing the invitation from getting through. How can I troubleshoot this?
S3 bucket migration to workdocs
I'm trying to do a migration from an S3 bucket to workdocs. I do all the steps but when migrating, only folders and subfolders are migrated and no files are included. I used the example policy of the AWS WorkDocs Migration Service itself, but it always fails in the end. What could be wrong? Both bucket and workdocs are in Virginia.
Power Users can't invite external users?
In the WorkDocs documentation, in [this link](https://docs.aws.amazon.com/workdocs/latest/adminguide/manage-sites.html#ext-invite-settings) in the section on "Security - external invitations", it claims that Power Users can be set up to invite external users. However, in the administration panel it doesn't exist. Our company has one administrator for WorkDocs, but could potentially have a few hundred power users. Those power users will have control over their allocated 1TB of space (and be on their own site), and they need to be able to invite external users to view a folder. Each power user might have a hundred or so external users that need to view folders in their space. What won't work at all is those power users having to contact the admin to send a link to every single external user they need to view their folders because that could potentially be 20,000+ external invitations that would be piled onto the one admin. It also won't work to make each of those power users an admin, because you'd run into the possibility that they could inadvertently create and/or invite paid users, and the cost to our company would skyrocket unnecessarily. Bottom line, we need to be able to have power users invite external users and ONLY external users--they should have ZERO ability to create or invite paid users. Those external users need to be able to view the contents of folders that the power user sets up. Can this be done? Thank you, -Brent
WorkDocs client on MAC shows 500gb capacity for users with UNLIMITED quota.
I am using WorkDocs to store my files in the cloud. I need to upload a large chunk of files and it failed today. I looked at the drive info on my Mac, and it says the size is 500gb. The user is set up as an admin user with UNLIMITED storage. Why is this happening and how can I resolve it? I have seen a post saying that the workdocs size is set to the same size as the OS drive where you have the client installed. Why in the world would this be set this way? I am using WorkDocs to store data I do not want taking up space on my laptop, so it surely could be more than the local hard drive capacity. Sounds like this is a known issue, when will it be resolved or do I need to research other solutions for my cloud storage?
Sharing Access to External Parties in Workdocs specific folders
Hi all, I work in Tax Compliance and on a daily basis we need to share huge files (xlxs, pdf, etc) with our 3P Audit Teams (external) but Outlook has a limit of attachments for 20mb. That way we would like to use a specifc folder in Workdocs to share files with external parties (our External Auditors). PS: The idea is for them to be able to view, download and add files into this folder. Is there any guide or step-by-step on how to do that? Creating the folder Giving them access/Registering them into Workdocs Thank you very much in advance.
AWS WorkDocs Drive Client Silently Fails Install
I tried installing using msiexec.exe so I could produce a log file. I see the following error in the install log: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'System.Collections.Immutable, Version=184.108.40.206...' I have tried uninstalling and re-installing MSMQ several times. No matter what I do however, workdocs just fails to install, and fails silently if not used with msiexec.exe.
