When you attempt to download a CXML file type attachment from a CA Service Desk Manager (SDM) ticket, the XML file content opens within the web browser by default.
Perform these steps to make the XML file type open within the default XML text editor:
- Backup the '%NX_ROOT%\bopcfg\www\CATALINA_BASE\webapps\CAisd\WEB-INF\web.xml' file on the CA Service Desk Manager server.
Note: %NX_ROOT% refers to CA SDM Installation directory. By default, NX_ROOT is 'C:\Program Files (x86)\CA\Service Desk Manager' on a Windows 64-bit OS.
- Open the file with a text editor and locate the following section:
- Modify this section so that it looks like the following:
- Save the changes to the file and restart the CA Service Desk Manager Tomcat process by running the following commands:
pdm_tomcat_nxd -c stop
Wait for 10 seconds
pdm_tomcat_nxd -c start
Note: Making the above change will "always" force a Save-As Dialog box on downloads of attachments from CA Service Desk Manager. This feature is useful for security reasons and disables automatic web browser opening of CA Service Desk Manager attachment content.
