Is it possible to track the document's download from maybe the section area?

In this case the author would have to some degree the possibility to audit downloaded docs.

Regards

Thanks for the hint. I'm not sure whether it logs downloads via various interfaces. This is not what the description suggests.

There is no builtin mechanism to do that, but is it easily possible to hook yourself to the navigation url pattern and perform additional work when downloading the file, like storing logs via the audit service.

Note that files can also be served by a servlet (that handles big files more efficiently), and that there is a number of additional ways that you can retrieve the actual document (export via clipboard for instance).

Note also that some non-binary content can be served as downloadable files sometimes, so depending on what features/screens you're offering to the user (and the kind of “audit” or “control” that you'd like to perform), options can be different.

I hoped that there is a kind of service port, in which the document is being prepared for download, whether you download it interactively or via interfaces (automation, cmis).
